Five things no woman wants to hear from a man:

The female brain is quite logical. We know how things should be done, when they should be done and whose job it is to do so. This, is why there are so many jokes about “my mom was right after all”. “Try, try and try again, then do it the way your mom told you in the first place”.  We take pride in our organizational skills, our ability to run a household while raising kids, managing finances, shopping for healthy food, ordering pizza, finding all things important including lost socks, favorite hair accessories, phone chargers and the spicy mustard in the back, left corner of the fridge behind the milk and yogurt.

Someday's I’ve felt like a Rockette in perfect sync; step kick, shuffle ball kick. Other days, I’ve felt like Lucielle Ball in a dance class ever going the opposite direction, bumping into the other dancers no matter how hard I try.
Disjointed and in a fog, even the dog can’t decide if she wants to come and cuddle or if she should hide under the bed until the storm pas…

Ten symptoms that signal your body is reaching menopause…
Perhaps I should rephrase the title… Ten symptoms that your body has been invaded by aliens, someone is injecting fog into your brain while sleeping, the dryer has shrunk your favorite jeans and why the he** does everyone keep turning the heat up in here?

I was a single mother much of my 40’s and spent some time “dating” on match.com. Some of these idiots (oopsie, I mean men) would include in their description of who they were looking for; sexy, fun, slender, to have a good time but “no meds” uuugggghhh……. okay, no problem, we can’t be on meds for depressions, anxiety, hot flashes, weight loss and insomnia, but it’s okay if you take Cialis and Viagra, get testosterone replacement, buy a sports car, a Harley Davidson motorcycle and a boat!!! H Y P O C R I T E S – they know nothing about women’s lives at THIS age………. b r e a t h e…. namaste.

Fantasy: Hey boys, 40 something female, fun, fit and pretty! I like to walk holding hands…

You know those fabulously gorgeous ladies splattered all over Instagram and FaceBook who look like, eat like, train like, smile like, have hair like the The Tone it up Girls www.toneitup.com I am always amazed at their obvious and incredible discipline. Diet, Exercise, Hair, even Teeth Whitening! #respect 

It’s not as if I don’t have that “kind” of discipline, it’s just that it never seems to last for an entire, day, week, month! Honestly, when I wake up in the morning, I HAVE A PLAN!! I am going to start my morning with hot water and a whole lemon squeezed in it – this is a great first for your liver in the morning! Then, I am going for a run (not entirely what can be described as a run, my version of a run means mostly running a three mile loop with my dog Mattie zig zagging all over the sidewalk). I’ve mapped out a plan that looks like one of the following; three Shakeology protein shakes each day this week, with or without added greens or a Keto plan, or an all Plant Based plan,…

Menopause....what am I becoming?

“Ahem…. you have broccoli your teeth”, “yes right there…. wait, there is a little more” awkward but usually an appreciated gesture. More difficult is a woman to a man “your zipper is down” because then he might think…. she just looked there and that’s why she noticed…. I didn’t actually look there, but the shiny gold teeth on the zipper caught the light, I don’t want to have to explain myself so I’ll keep quiet on this one. 


A similar feeling occurred when I was sitting across from a female family physician, she is about my age or a little younger. Probably not yet 50, she is using her wine menu as a fan and dabbing sweat from her forehead while unsticking her blouse from under her bra line to avoid a sweat stain. She seems unaware of the sweat droplets fast accumulating on the little hairs of her upper lip. If I took off my reading glasses, I might not be able to see this and could avoid this observation altogether. The broccoli question pops into my head… should I tell her about the …
