Belly fat, weight loss, nutrition, fitness, motivation — oh my!
Every Thursday I tackle these popular topics of interest to women over 50. 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, the scary, and the comedic.
I promise you will always walk away with real, actionable advice you can use.
It’s why my blog was recently given an award for the #1 Fitness Over 50 Blog.
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.

We assume a lot of things as we go about our day. We don’t think about most of them until something goes awry. For example, you expect water to come out of the showerhead when you turn the knob. You only notice it when it doesn’t, or if it shoots out scalding water,...read more
I’ve talked in the past about my incessant need to ask questions, including while under sedation during my colonoscopy. I am apparently super annoying even while unconscious. The worst part? I will never know what I asked. I believe all gastroenterologists are...read more
Long ago, in a village far, far away, “old age” was seen as an admirable achievement only a handful of people were privileged enough to ever reach. You were held in high esteem if you made it to the ripe old age of 50. Villagers built you a pedestal and bestowed you...read more
I’ve often talked about a few of my personal life situations where I didn’t know where to turn next... an emotionally abusive relationship, an eating disorder, and battle with panic attacks that left me nearly housebound. Nice way to start off a motivational post!...read more
Last week I received a press release about a new type of workout: Naked CrossFit. At this point I should just drop the mic and walk off the stage. Because honestly, what more can I add to that? Here’s the thing. Fitness is one of those topics where (unlike Apple...read more
I once had a horrible fear of flying. My stomach would do flip-flops the minute I began making travel plans. I’d be a mess from the day I booked the flight to the weeks leading up to my trip. Not surprisingly, I was less-than-fun to be around. I tried everything,...read more
It’s been many moons since I wrote about ab exercises. It’s not on purpose. I simply put it in the “overhyped” category, along with other things I hear about way too often lately, such as paleo, unicorn anything, and using cauliflower in place of pizza dough for...read more
I received an invitation to my 40th high school reunion this week. This was one of those reality checks I could do without. Reading it was the equivalent of someone taking me by the shoulders, and saying, "Look me in the eye. You, my friend, are no spring chicken."...read more
I talked recently about my love for sci-fi movies, but I left out one important reason. Sure, drooling, double-jawed space aliens bursting out of people’s bodies are hard to top, but my fixation goes beyond the obvious. Hint: It has to do with zero gravity. Zero...read more
