Changing the Face of 50: Let’s Teach Our Daughters Differently

One of the participants in my Fit, Fabulous and Fierce over 40 class said something a couple of weeks ago that really struck me. She said, “The weight gain thing in menopause isn’t the worst part of it. The worst part is looking in the mirror and seeing how old I look. I hate how I look.” A long-time friend who recently spent time with...

7 Ways to Break Free from Midlife Mindset Muck

“The biggest problem I’ve had since menopause is lack of passion/interest/direction in my life.” “I feel frozen somehow.” “ I seem to have lost myself.” “ I don’t know what’s normal and what’s not. I focus on every little thing about my body.” These are common comments I hear from my clients and the ladies in the Hormone Harmony Club. It’s almost as if their...

7 Powerful Ways to Escape Midlife Mindset Muck

~ Thoughts are not facts, even the ones that tell you they are. One of my clients, Chris, just sent me an e-mail SOS. She’s completely overwhelmed with all that she needs to do. Insomnia has sapped her mojo and family responsibilities are weighing her down. She wanted to know what she could do to feel better RIGHT-THIS-VERY-MINUTE! Here’s what I told her. “Put on...

Hello Tradition! Meet Transition…

So, here we are again. Surrounded by family and friends during a time of year that is loaded with tradition, high expectations, anxiety, overwhelm, and the potential for enough drama to fill the theaters in Times Square. Fun, huh? I’ve been tap dancing with my own expectations this week…trying to keep myself at an objective, safe 30,000 foot level, but finding myself face-planted in the...

The Art of Receiving

I never really thought about receiving very much. And when I did, it usually was related to material gifts. But a Mastermind group meeting a few years changed all that. One of my groupmates was taking her turn telling all of us about what she was creating in her already-successful. We were all amazed and were telling her how wonderful it all was. But, she...

Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There!

Where do you get your best ideas? In the shower? On vacation? When you’re doing nothing? What….NOTHING???? Who DOES that? Our society does not encourage doing “nothingness”. We work too much, eat too quickly, socialize too little, drive and sit in traffic for too many hours, don’t get enough sleep and feel harried too much of the time. We wear our overwhelm and crazy-busyness like Girl Scout...

Just This

“Just this.” “Just this” is the mantra I use to bring me back to the present so I can actually be where I am. I tend to live my life about 5 miles ahead of where I am.  This works in some situations where advance planning is important…but I tend to miss a lot of what is going on around me. I need a strategy...

5 Ways to Jumpstart an Attitude Makeover

My husband and I were recently in a busy fast-food restaurant in an airport.  We were placing our order with a cheerful counter attendant when one of her co-workers came running in, obviously late for work. “Cheerful” spoke to her colleague with a quick “How’s it going?” “It sucks!” was the response as she got as grumpy gal darted around the corner. The employees and...
