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.

How would you react if you saw a drone hovering outside your window right now, monitoring every morsel of food you put in your mouth? And every time you did, it set off an alarm. That swipe of peanut butter you took while walking through the kitchen: BEEP! The handful...read more
As a fitness and health writer I spend 90% of my day reading the latest weight loss and workout stories. Ironically, I also spend the same amount of time muttering “that’s total BS” under my breath. Sure, it would be great to “sleep away the belly fat!” and “lose 9...read more
