5 Morning routines to help you seize the day

I admit, I am a morning person. I get up at 4:15 a.m., usually without an alarm clock.    I can already hear the splash of coffee getting thrown against computer screens in disgust. Let me explain. Actually, I can’t. When anyone questions my bizarre personality quirk I usually blame years of in-home personal training…

10 ways to get in shape when exercise bores you to tears

A couple years ago I started a Facebook group for women over 50 (Ageless After 50 Women). We share issues ranging from weight loss to hot flashes and anything relevant to health and fitness that’s frustrating enough to make you seek anger management treatments, book a flight on the next Mars mission, or start a…

Stop doing this ONE thing and boost motivation instantly

I don’t consider myself a complainer. As I typed that sentence I instantly flashed back to all the posts I wrote about my arthritic knee, being overwhelmed and stressed out, and all the general frustrations of life.  So let me start again: I would like to consider myself a non-complainer.

3 Exercises that don’t do what you think they do

Let me start by saying we all do the best we can with the knowledge we have. This means, unless you’re a trained professional in every aspect of life, you likely have gaps in the information you possess. So, hence, you rely on info provided by other people. First, let’s take a quick look at…

5 Tips for a pain-free workout

I recently read a story about the demise of an Indonesian man, Mbah Gotho, who claimed to be 146 years old when he died.    Many people say he exaggerated. For one, Indonesia did not begin recording births until 1900, which makes his claim suspicious. Truth is, he may have been a whippersnapper of merely 120-something.…

6 Key ingredients for a DIY success plan

Let me say upfront that I did not go from owning a bakery to becoming a personal trainer for its shock value. And, contrary to popular rumors, nor did I do it to create my own clientele. Although that would’ve been ingenious on my part. Truth is, as a creative person, I loved the decorating…

5 Times you get in your own way… and how to stop it

We’ve been our new house for three weeks now, and I’ve come to a number of realizations. One, is how even though we moved only 12 miles from our former house, it may as well be on another planet.  I do my shopping at all new stores, including an organic grocer with the apparent tagline: If…

How to turn fitness fails into success stories

After watching the SyFy channel the other night (tagline: yes, we know how to spell, but this looks way cooler), I experienced a eureka moment: We live in a parallel universe. One is called Facebook and the other is real life. Okay, this wasn’t exactly news to me. But it became extra clear as I…

10 key questions to ask yourself for faster results 

I don’t remember much about my colonoscopy from a few years back, which is probably a good thing. But after I came out of the anesthesia my doctor looked at me oddly when I asked him how I did. He told me everything looked fine and added, “You asked a lot of questions.” He did…

How to get back into the swing of things after a break

According to the Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory, which ranks life events according to the impact they have on a person’s life, a “major change in living conditions” ranks 25 on a scale of 11 to 100, the latter being death of a spouse.   I beg to differ.
