Don't fight your age. REDEFINE IT!

I turned FIFTY in September. Yep, the big FIVE-0 is here, and I was a little freaked out as the day loomed. I may not LOOK it anymore, but I still feel 25. I’ve lost the disease to please (for the most part) and believe I’m a LOT wiser than I was then, but I still feel VITAL. I’m approaching that age that sounded so old back in the 1980s when I was a teen, back when Prince sang about partying like it was 1999 and THAT sounded like a long way off. But, instead of FIGHTING my age, I’d rather REDEFINE it. 

Maybe you feel this way too! I used to make lots of excuses, but now I’d rather make the changes I want happen. If you don’t know where to start your journey, read below for my tips and tricks to help me feel young.

While I can't do what I did in y 20s and 30s without consequences, I’ve adjusted, without sacrificing. I eat healthy foods about 80% of the time… veggies, fruits, nutrient-dense stuff that gives me clean fuel. I save the other 20% for fun treats and true ENJOYMENT of food. When I can’t eat at least 3-4 veggies a day, I supplement with a superfood shake.

I also MOVE my body. If you don’t use it, you lose it, right? It kind of sucks, but the older you get, the

FASTER you lose it too. #truthbomb. I work out at least 5-6 times a week, mostly at home doing workouts from a subscription-based service. I did NONE of that stuff in my 20s. I WORK for the results I have. It’s a lifestyle choice. I choose to do the things that make me feel healthy and vital, because I’ve seen what some of my peers have had to go through if they choose a different path. And, if all else fails… I use a pre-workout to light a fire under my ass when I’d rather sit in my robe and drink coffee than work out (which is most days).

To keep my skin healthy, I try to stay out of the sun, and I wear sunscreen religiously. Water is my drink 95% of the time, and I save wine and alcohol for special occasions. I also use a collagen supplement for skin elasticity. I’m trying to embrace my wrinkles as badges of honor, but that’s a work in progress. I spent too much time in the 80s slathered in baby oil frying like a Thanksgiving turkey, and in tanning booths to undo all the damage. However, my skincare routine also includes a retinol and a vitamin C serum.

I’d love to hear what YOU do to stay feeling young and vital. Drop your comments below!

Cranberry Chicken Salad

This is one of my all time favorite, nutritious salads. It tastes indulgent, with lots of flavor. I make a big batch and have it for lunch or dinner all week. I never get tired of eating this, and it's easy to make! 

Sometimes I eat it on top a bed of salad greens, tomatoes, and cucumbers, and other times I eat it on top of a quartered red bell pepper. Top with a dash of Valentina Hot Sauce (the absolute best)!!


One pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup avocado mayo
1/2 cup Greek yogurt or Sour Cream
1/4 cup dijon mustard
One cup chopped celery
One cup chopped or shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
salt and pepper to taste


1. Boil chicken - cover chicken in water, place on stove. Boil for 3 minutes, then simmer for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. 

2. Shred chicken - easiest way to shred it is with a mixer.

3. Mix all ingredients together and stir. 

4. Store for up to 5 days.
