12 minute fat burning workout!

I am creating a new program which starts next Thursday …check local workout page for more details!

What is the minimum You  need to do to stay in Fit and Fabulous shape?

Today’s workout  includes 30 push-ups and 30 burpees! I think that is enough.

First, I did  my PT back exercise to warm up, a mile run/ walk with George the dog , my 12 minute fat-burning workout and finished up with a few yoga stretches . A perfect workout!

30 seconds of jumping jacks

10 push ups with a T

30 seconds alternating rear lunge with a cute knee lift

10 burpees

30 second plank

Complete three rounds and don’t forget to stretch.





I have been doing a lot of soul searching the past 6 months. I hurt my back and had to take some time off, physical therapy etc. I have always been athletic which is a very ego-driven adventure. Working out and being Fit is very important to me and my ego.

Christa and I created OutdoorFit 7 years ago. It has been a great run. We taught and encouraged women to do things they never thought they could do. My friend Jane became an athlete in her 60’s. We changed lives, created winter warriors and had a great time doing it!

It is time for a change, A NEW BEGINNING! A few weeks ago at a workout I looked up and in class we had two 70 something, three 60 something, two women in their 50’s and a youngster who just turned 40! I thought this is AMAZING! Fit and Fabulous…Aging Optional!!

It is time to create a different workout. It will still be intense but perhaps for 12 minutes instead of 25 minutes. 60 burpees in a workout is very empowering but not necessary for your health and well being. How about 25 or so? It will include more stretching… flexibility is key for any age.

I have also been tweaking my diet. I know I can’t exercise my way out of a BAD DIET! I don’t want to be working out so hard. So I need to be more aware of what I am putting in my mouth. I want to feel FABULOUS, VIBRANT and HEALTHY.

My program is coming together and will begin in September. I am excited to be announcing the details soon. So please stay tuned.

For a sneak preview, I am having a Fit and Fabulous event Thursday evening in Red Bank. I would love to see you there. More details here and please RSVP.



Sorry, in the shadows…These are AMAZING WOMEN!

Rethinking Retirement!

This blog post has been in my draft file for a few months. I thought this week would be the perfect time to post it. The old is falling away and it is time to look at life in a new way.

I was on my monthly Team Northrup telegathering this week. It is an international call with Dr. Christiane Northrup, her daughter Kate and her sister Penny.It was an interesting talk about retirement . We are all living longer than the retirement age of 65 and why not continue on and do what you love. I got involved with Team Northrup because I am interested in building residual income  by helping myself and inspiring  others to be healthy. It is very important to have a subculture that supports and I have found this with Team Northrup.

I wanted to share this with My OutdoorFit ladies. You are a subculture of phenomenal ladies who aren’t afraid of doing something just a little different from your peers in almost any kind of weather. I wanted to Thank you for that!  I was listening to the call when Dr. Northrup starts talking about Mary. (ME!!!) A woman who is in her “inner circle” and one of her leaders in Team Northrup. Here is the recording of the Telegathering…Rethinking Retirement. I am at minute 11:23!

I like to listen while ironing:)

Thank you for allowing me to share.



Why not continue on doing what you love and make money until the day you die? Instead of wondering whether you are going to run out of money before you die? What do you love to do?



Time For A Change!

I have been working on creating a new program for the fall and I am excited about it. It will be a new beginning! September is a good time for a new program, back to school time, turning 60 (WOW) etc. I have been looking at  my fitness and well being in a different way the past 6 months.

Here are some of the ideas and thoughts that I have been working with. Creativity and ideas have been flowing. I feel like I am on the right path and hope to inspire you as well!

  • Easy, Peasy
  • Rid of aches and pains or at least reduced.
  • Healthy Weight
  • Minimum amount of exercise that you need to stay in shape.
  • Can’t exercise your way out of a BAD DIET!
  • Laugh everyday!
  • A lovely cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening…just because:)

More Details to come!
