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.

12 Ways to Burn Off Thanksgiving Dinner

Let’s face it, Thanksgiving is the one day a year no one gives you a hard time for eating what you want. One day won’t single-handedly add girth to your midsection unless you carry it over until New Year’s  and beyond. So it’s fine to live a little. But since the average person eats around…

5 Easy Tips to Eat Like a Trainer

Fitness is one of those rare occupations where your body becomes a marketing tool. Sure, trainers come in different shapes and sizes, but an overweight trainer who eats donuts for breakfast and can’t walk up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing won’t earn much respect—or clients. People expect trainers to be role models,…

Love Your Body After 50

  How happy are you with your body? If you’re a woman over 50, chances are you’re not, according to a recent study published online in the Journal of Women & Aging. Researchers asked over 1,700 women ages 50 and older about their history of dieting, weight control, eating disorder symptoms, current weight and shape concerns,…

5 Best Exercises for Women Over 50

Reasons to exercise change as you age. In my 20s it was all about matching my leg warmers to my headband and mimicking moves from Flashdance. I took back-to-back aerobic classes (obsessive much?) and ended up with a stress fracture of my foot thanks to the unforgiving floors of that era. High impact on concrete floors…

3 Easy Ways to Fit In Exercise

Pre and Post Workout Meals: What's Best?

  Consider this: more than half the results you get from your exercise program depend on what you eat. That’s right, hundreds of crunches and hours of plodding along on a treadmill like a deranged hamster won’t undo a bad diet. But when and how much is best to eat when you’re trying to manage…

5 Ways to Look 10 Years Younger

I confess, I am a beauty products junkie. From body lotions to nail polish, lipstick, eye shadow and everything in between, I’ve been on a quest all my life for the best of the best. And, just like playing slot machines in Vegas, occasionally I score big. I discover smaller pores, longer lashes or firmer…

5 Sneaky Weight Gain Culprits

It may seem like it, but weight gain doesn’t happen overnight. Little habits you pick up over time add up to those excess pounds, and often you’re not even aware of them. It’s easy to cut out dessert when you openly acknowledge that nightly slice of cheesecake. But often you don’t know where the problem…
