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.

Let’s be honest: Can you ever have too many ab exercises? It’s like having too many shoes. No such thing exists. In the case of ab workouts, it’s fun to try them all in a quest for that one exercise that will finally get take your abs from flabby to washboard flat and...read more
