3 Keys To Get Started and Keep Going

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.

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…

7 energizing tactics when you're dog tired

Most days I don’t really mind aging, despite all my complaining about my knee. Besides, until someone creates an actual time machine that can send me back to the 70s, it’s not as if I have a choice.      The only time it truly bothers me is when it takes me five minutes to…

How to turn your daily routine into a firm-up plan

I usually save workout posts for Thursday, but I felt this topic combines motivation with a bit of fitness thrown in, so it still qualifies for a Monday Motivation.     Besides, with the holidays around the corner it’s a good idea to think proactively so January 1 doesn’t blindside you… “What?? I just finished scooping…

 7 fitness & weight loss hacks no one tells you

I am a huge fan of scary movies — not gratuitously violent films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – but more of the Jurassic Park, Cloverfield and, more recently, the Lights Out, variety (if you haven’t seen it, and can afford to skip a night of sleep, it’s a “must see”).    It makes no…

4 Mindset shifts that boost motivation

I got a shot in my knee last week as part of my ongoing battle with osteoarthritis pain. First, let me say upfront I am not someone who seeks out pain, which is why I don’t rollerblade, walk on hot coals, or wrestle alligators for a living. But needles don’t usually frighten me. Lately, though,…
