Award-winning blog

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.
