My blog

I blog every Monday and Thursday, tackling topics 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. Go to the bottom of this page and subscribe to my Thursday regular weekly newsletter post or go to my WORK WITH ME page to receive my Monday Motivation.

3 “harmless” diet beliefs that sabotage weight loss

Recently someone accused me of being long winded. She said (and I’m paraphrasing here) that my yammering on about silly stuff on my blog took so long to get through that she couldn’t make it to my tips and bailed before reading down that far.    I can’t totally blame her. I realize my idea…

7 Reasons you’re STILL not seeing results

I started working out at age 21, otherwise known as The Dawn of Time. The earth was young, smoldering volcanic ash littered the landscape.

I survived Flashdance leg warmers, Jane Fonda high-rise leotards…

7 Best and worst exercises for an achy back

Pop quiz! Guess what I did to celebrate my birthday this week: Wrestled an alligator live on national TV Draped myself in bubble wrap and rolled down a hill Got X-rays of my spine at the local hospital I think we know the answer. Clearly, alligator wrestling and rolling down hills sounding like human popcorn…

The most important thing I learned in 58 years on this planet

Every year I expect to become wiser in some way. So today, on the eve of my 58th birthday (Jan 17), I’m sitting in front of my computer, waiting for a lightning bolt, rainbow or burst of glitter to announce the arrival of this knowledge.

3 Cardio myths that make you fat

(I realize I mixed several different…

Next to weight loss and belly fat, “ways to stay motivated” tops many Ageless Women over 50’s wish list. Whenever I hear this question I wish I could climb a mountain somewhere in Peru, seek out a bearded guru wearing a multi-colored sarong and offer him a plate of figs in exchange for the answer,…

How to handle fitness setbacks

  I admit, I don’t like surprises. I’ll make exceptions for those that involve a chocolatey center, an unexpected award, or a birthday party in my honor. For those, I’m on board.    So when technical problems reared their ugly head last week after launching my new website, I was considerably less than thrilled. “Surprise! You’re in…

The start of a new year makes me more introspective than usual.  Which means I ask myself, “What the heck is wrong with me?” at least several times a day, versus just once when I wake up and want to pull the covers over my head. Okay, I may be exaggerating but not by much.…

Regardless of the time of day I get to the gym, I’m guaranteed to find one thing every single time. Can you guess it? Here’s a hint, it’s one of these: A. People with a severe case of bed head B. Weights strewn all over the gym as if a bomb went off in the center…
