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.

4 Mindset shifts that boost motivation

I got a shot in my knee last week as part of my ongoing battle with osteoarthritis pain. First, let me say upfront I am not someone who seeks out pain, which is why I don’t rollerblade, walk on hot coals, or wrestle alligators for a living. But needles don’t usually frighten me. Lately, though,…

How to achieve your ideal weight (it's not what you think)

I sometimes wish I lived back in the days of the wild west.    I usually think like this on days when the Internet goes out, my phone battery dies, or a number of any other modern day malfunctions causes life as we know it to come to a complete standstill. In the wild west…

5 Steps to achieve your ideal weight (and it’s not what you think)

5 Ways to stay upbeat when it's cold and dark outside (includes a mood-boosting workout)

Daylight Saving Time officially ended last night at 2:00 a.m., when we all set our clocks back one hour (except for Hawaii and parts of Arizona, where people apparently no longer live in the dark ages). Why we still do this remains one of the world’s greatest mysteries. Allegedly turning the clock back and forth…

Best of the best exercises for abs, arms and legs for women over 50

I recently asked my Ageless After 50 Facebook group for their biggest fitness concerns. It was nicer than asking, “Which body part would you like to donate to science and replace with a new and improved version?”  To be honest, I was pretty sure I already knew the answers, but I wanted an impromptu “study”…

How to get a headstart on weight loss in 2017

Today represents the scariest day of the year, and it has nothing to do with Halloween. Sure, you’re 10x more likely to be attacked by a zombie, scared by a ghost or bitten by a werewolf.    But those incidences pale in comparison to the fright you’ll get on November 1 when you step on…

5 Ways to burn 1,000 calories (for real)

I openly admit I am not a big fan of math. The very idea of adding and subtracting, multiplying, square rooting and other nightmarish calculations make my eyes glaze over. (If you’re an accountant, and I wore a hat, it would be off to you.) Mention any type of equation and I feel myself mentally…

#1 Tip for getting motivated (hint: you can do it NOW)

Some days I feel like an imposter. I write about motivation but am often the least motivated person on the planet. In fact, I have mastered the art of procrastination with the skill of Usain Bolt training for the Olympics.    Apparently, I need an impending, imminent deadline for anything to get done. But in my…

How to get results when you can't do your usual workout

Bad knees are like a relationship that’s run its course: Once it becomes painful, it’s unlikely to get better.  Exactly a year ago this month I hurt my knee at the gym while doing lunges. To avoid completely grossing you out, let’s just say my kneecap decided to go east when the rest of my…
