My blog

Every Monday and Thursday I tackle topics of interest to women over 50, ranging from belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation and more.

I wrap it all up in a humorous package to make it easy to digest. In the process I also give you a glimpse into the struggles of my own life – the good, the bad and the ugly.

I promise you will always walk away with real, actionable advice you can use.

In a rush to get all the latest and greatest? I also send out each post in the form of a newsletter in which you can subscribe.

#1 Reason why even fit women gain 8 lbs. during menopause (and how to fix it)

I found two grey eyelash hairs this week. The magnitude of this discovery cannot be emphasized enough. Because here’s the thing. I’ve been prematurely grey since high school. It’s a hereditary issue. My dad started turning silver in his teens, and I followed in his footsteps. It’s been a raging battle ever since I can remember.…

The key to create permanent results

We’re moving in a couple of weeks. Our new house is only 12 miles from our current abode, but it may as well be across the continent. Packing is the same regardless. I am not freaking out only because it’s not happening today. Inside, I’m dreading the process with the force of a thousand suns.…

5 Best stretches for women over 50

Every morning I wake up and play a game I call What Hurts Today? Or, if something already hurts, I play a related game, Is It Better or Worse? The answer often reveals itself as soon as I step out of the bed. Other times it begins when I start working out. Other days, like…

Top 5 motivational posts of all time (or at least the past couple years)

I’m not a person to take shortcuts, aside from fast-forwarding through commercials on recorded TV shows. Or when buying a rotisserie chicken when I’m too lazy to cook, which is a lot, unfortunately. But this week I’m making an exception. I spent the entire weekend preparing for a webinar I’m hosting this Thursday, How to…

How to lose weight without really trying

I’m a big believer in signs. Not big, blaring neon signs, although they have their place. I’m referring to the signs your life send you that tell you when you’re on the right track. Or about to derail into a ditch. Fir example… I moved from Connecticut to California about 18 years ago. I was…

How to stay mentally sharp after 50

I have anxiety issues. If you’ve read any of my prior posts (see links below) I’m sure this comes as no surprise. I’ve talked about my battle with panic attacks, which began in my teens when I was rushed to the hospital after I passed out from hyperventilating. So that was fun. It didn’t end…

How to use combination exercises for faster results

I’m a quality versus quantity type of person. Sometimes I combine the two, as noted by my makeup collection and jeans wardrobe. But otherwise, I’d rather have one really nice thing than a bunch of lesser quality ones.    Take friends, for instance.  I don’t have many, but those I have mean a lot to…

5 Simplest weight loss tactics ever

Before I get into this embarrassing story, let me say upfront I’ve never been a techie person. I can upload videos on YouTube, write this blog on my site and perform enough basic functions to give the illusion I can handle modern life. That façade got blown out of the water this past week in…

8 FAQs about cardio and resistance training for an ageless body

I compare the aging process to the scene in Indiana Jones where Harrison Ford runs from a giant boulder chasing him through a tunnel. The rock represents everything I hate about aging: aches, pains, depression, menopause, night sweats and depression. (I realize I mentioned depression twice, but it’s on my mind so I’m leaving it.)…
