    Fit at Home

    My niece was telling me how being “safer at home” has cause her to put on weight. I’ve heard several people complain about the same thing. People are doing things at home that they’ve never had the time to do before — it looks like it’s time to add fit at home to that list. Walking Is the Best Walking being the best fitness tool is just my opinion. It’s so simple, it’s not strenuous. Walking with someone or if alone, listening to something on your device makes walking time seem like no problem. Even doctors say if we don’t do any other exercise, at least walk on a consistent…

    What a Woman Wants

    Remember the movie, What a Girl Wants?  I don’t think that statement included older women.  Older women are usually 50 plus.  You know something — I’ve never given much thought to what a woman over 50 wants, until now. Life Without the Children Actually, I may have thought a lot about what women over 50 want and it’s just now coming to the forefront of my mind.  What we want is not only what we want from men, but from life in general. It may be hard for a young wife and mother to fathom a life where you can actually make you, your priority.  Your husband is very much…

    Stay at Home Clothes

    What a time we are living in.  I don’t want to dwell on the sadness, we hear enough about that daily.  My story is being at home everyday.  I find myself needing stay at home clothes. Not So Fun Anymore Being able to have days on end to yourself sounds more like a fantasy.  That is until the Covid pandemic hit us. I personally have time to spare.  I take out time to read more facebook post.  People were sharing how they weren’t getting out of bed until after noon, others spoke of laying around in the sleeping clothes, still others had children to teach and entertain. Many people were…

    Time To Watch TV

    I’m sure most people have a lot of “safer at home” stories. I must admit, I’ve gotten to know what’s on TV a lot more, and kudos to the TV entertainment industry for coming up with programs to keep us entertained. We now have the time to watch more TV. Something Is Missing When ever I had a not so busy day, I would turn on the TV set and watch reruns of I Love Lucy. It used to come on in the morning hours faithfully for a long time. Some of you may know that there was I Love Lucy and then there was The Lucy Show. Odd thing…

    The No Diet Diet

    It sounded like a good idea to name this article, the no diet diet because simply saying the word “diet” automatically takes my mind to food deprivation. I wake up in the morning knowing I won’t be able to have some of my favorite foods, and well it’s just not pretty! Reasons For Dieting As we age, the reason for dieting may no longer be just because we want to look better, but now our reason has to do with our health. The most common health reasons are usually diabetes, high blood sugar, or high bad cholesterol. It’s amazing how you can go along, living your life….go to your doctor…

    Best Jobs Women Over 50

    I was reluctant to use the word “job” in my title, that word may be indelibly implanted in our psych. We may mean to say career or working for one’s self, but the “j” word slips out sometimes. I wanted to know how to define job as opposed to a career, and this is what I fund on the internet: “A job is something you do simply to earn money; a career is a series of connected employment opportunities. A job has minimal impact on your future work life, while a career provides experience and learning to fuel your future. A job offers few networking opportunities, but a career is…

    How to Make the Best of Life

    I may have misled some readers. This blog is actually for women who’ve entered their senior years. Actually though, this information could apply to the younger women as well. Why wait until you’re fifty to realize the things you “shouda, coulda, woulda” done. How to make the best of life can apply without age barriers. Negatives Habits I used to have the awful habit of quitting every new project I started. Looking back, I didn’t understand why I was so prone to giving up and I still can’t explain why I couldn’t see things through to completion. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t give up every endeavor I started, just…

    Grandmothering

    I love being a grandmother. If you are over 50, maybe younger, you’re probably a grandmother too. Are you enjoying the times you have with the grand kids or as I like to call it, grandmothering? For me, they keep me lively and knowledgeable about different trends. I’m having lots of fun!  Got Girls As a mother, I had three boys and no girls, I wanted a girl so much, but it wasn’t meant to be for me. My boys were the best — they were good kids, simply stated. Their friends were basically like them, so I had no problem having them over to our house for games and…

    Body Shapers

    I so admire those ladies who have hour glass figures.  Not all of us are shaped with a waistline that indents and then curves around the hips.  It’s a very sexy look.  Alas, we come in different shapes and sizes. I must admit, I’ve seen some of the oddest shaped women in my time. There are things we can do to help us get the look we desire.  Waist trainers, cincher’s or body shaper’s do pretty much the same thing and may just be the ticket.  Which one should you purchase?  Here’s some help for you. Yianna Waist Trainer/Waist Cincher I personally have tried this cincher.  It gave me such…
