Motivation

The most important thing I learned in 58 years on this planet

Every year I expect to become wiser in some way. So today, on the eve of my 58th birthday (Jan 17), I’m sitting in front of my computer, waiting for a lightning bolt, rainbow or burst of glitter to announce the arrival of this knowledge. So far: nada. Since the birthday fairies are apparently busy…

4 Motivation killers you underestimate (and how to turn them around)

Next to weight loss and belly fat, “ways to stay motivated” tops many Ageless Women over 50’s wish list. Whenever I hear this question I wish I could climb a mountain somewhere in Peru, seek out a bearded guru wearing a multi-colored sarong and offer him a plate of figs in exchange for the answer,…

How to handle fitness setbacks

  I admit, I don’t like surprises. I’ll make exceptions for those that involve a chocolatey center, an unexpected award, or a birthday party in my honor. For those, I’m on board.    So when technical problems reared their ugly head last week after launching my new website, I was considerably less than thrilled. “Surprise! You’re in…

How to push through the post-holiday blues

The start of a new year makes me more introspective than usual.  Which means I ask myself, “What the heck is wrong with me?” at least several times a day, versus just once when I wake up and want to pull the covers over my head. Okay, I may be exaggerating but not by much.…

I’m writing this on Christmas Day. I told myself I would take the day off, but you know what? It feels good to get some of my thoughts on paper. Besides that, writing this keeps me from diving headfirst into the bag of ridiculously calorically-rich candy my parents sent me. Every year my mom and…

Top 10 Ageless After 50 posts of 2016

It’s hard to believe it’s the end of another year. And, from what I can gather, most people would rather forget 2016 ever happened.    In fact, people who write about history could leave it out of any future textbooks and no one would complain. Let’s just close the lid, nail it shut, dust off…

3 Steps to create an effective weight loss strategy

Ask people about their goals for the New Year and 99% will answer, “lose weight!” “get in shape!” or “be happy!” The remaining 1% are still too hungover to answer. Studies show we’re more likely to find motivation when we have a clean slate in front of us: a new home, new relationship, new job…

The only New Year's resolution you need in 2017 (plus a new video!)

I remember turning my cat calendar over to July 25th this year and joking to my husband, “Only five months until Christmas!” We both laughed at how fast time flies. That was five minutes ago.    And once again, here we are, bringing the cat to the vets for her annual holiday ornament eating emergency.…

5 Ways to cultivate an ageless mindset… for an ageless body

  I walked into the gym the other morning and staked my claim on a bench in the weight room. Another member, someone I know on a “hi, how are you?” basis sat next to me. He’s very thin, a little hunched over, with a weathered face, looking as if he either worked outdoors or…

3 Non-negotiable keys to weight loss success (plus a bonus tip!)

I’ve never been a big negotiator, even at yard sales and swap meets where you’re expected to haggle. It makes me uncomfortable.  I’m sure this weirdness can be traced back to some childhood issue. It was probably over trying to negotiate with my mom to switch from Cheerios to Captain Crunch, debating the age I…
