There’s nothing better than meeting up with an old friend over drinks and delicious appetizers. I adore preparing my son’s favorite meals when he comes home for a visit. And don’t even get me started on how I feel about all the treats that come with the holiday season. Food is an integral and happy part of life that brings people together. However, it’s important that women – especially those of us in our 60’s and older – are fully in the know as to how much food and what types of food our bodies need for optimal performance and health. It’s important to know how to count calories in your sixties.Read More
I always enjoyed going out for Valentine’s Day. It made me feel special to have my husband plan an evening (even though I did most of the planning) and I would get all dressed up for the occasion. Now that I’m middle aged I find that all the hype associated with this holiday is just that — hype. You spend a lot of money eating food you really are not crazy about from a very limited menu and you spend a fortune!Read More
Yes, I know it’s Super Bowl Sunday and yes I do know we ladies want to have fun today. And yes I know that many of us don’t like to exercise on Sunday. Okay, now raise your hand if you’re planning on enjoying this special day with some wings, chips and dip, cheesy nachos, maybe some pigs in the blanket, pizza and some beer. If your hand is in the air let’s be smart and get these over fifty bodies moving a little. You can do this quick workout while you watch the halftime entertainment. Or be smart and pregame before the party starts. Either way this short routine will get your heart racing and your blood pumping and your metabolism rising.Read More

While the start of a new calendar year can be the perfect time to set new fitness goals, it’s up to us, ladies, to listen to our bodies to set realistic, smart and safe fitness goals. What’s the benefit? It’s two-fold. Fitness isn’t a one-size-fits-all mentality. No two women are the same – and those of us in our fifties and sixties certainly aren’t in the same place as women in their twenties and thirties. Our bodies are different, and we have to account for these differences when we set our fitness goals. The benefit here is that if we take the time to recognize and set smaller, realistic goals, we’re more likely to accomplish them.
