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.

In a perfect world we’d all get up early, exercise, eat a healthy breakfast and get to work with an endorphin-fueled smile on our faces. Pause here for laughter. For most of us that will happen the same day a study shows that eating a pint of mint chocolate-chip ice...read more
