#1 Trait that determines your success no one tells you

If you’re a regular reader you may think my life is one hilarious encounter after another. And while some days that’s true, other times this could not be farther from the truth. Case in point: this week.  For one, I strained my back at the gym yesterday because I forgot I’m no spring chicken, so…

#1 Most overlooked muscle that determines your success

We all have our quirks. Granted, I have more than my fair share, which I am about to prove once again.  When you’re just getting to know someone it usually takes only a few meetings before you decide you like them, or they reveal something that quickly lets you know it’s time to part ways.…

4 Dietary mistakes you don’t know you’re making

As you probably know by now, mainly because I’ve brought it up enough times, I once worked as a restaurant pastry chef and owned a bakery. I prided myself on decorating a basketweave wedding cake within 45 minutes and making cream puff batter from scratch. I often feel my current occupation is karma’s way of helping…

How to change what you can… and make peace with the rest

I’ve started writing this post about half a dozen times and I hereby vow to actually finish it. I’m struggling because we’re in the midst of buying a new home, I’m having emotional issues with a good friend and the Word grammar tool keeps providing unsolicited advice on ways to make my sentences more succinct.…

#1 Way to stop spinning your wheels

If you’ve read a few of my posts you probably know by now that I’m a bit eccentric. Not in a mad scientist, collect-my-urine-in-bottles-never-cut-my-fingernails way, but in an I-have-my-own-ideas-and-I’m-not-afraid-to-use-them way. In other words, I am not a follower. You won’t catch me wearing a designer’s name across my butt, hopping on some “great, new” diet…

7 Reasons you’re STILL not seeing results

I started working out at age 21, otherwise known as The Dawn of Time. The earth was young, smoldering volcanic ash littered the landscape. Primordial Soup topped every restaurant menu.   I was present for the birth of aerobics classes and the cult-like following of Atkins. I survived Flashdance leg warmers, Jane Fonda high-rise leotards…

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.…
