Happy Sunday, ladies, let’s get our beverage of choice (for me, strong coffee) and sit down with Today’s News for Women Over 50. Why read something else when you have a whole website just for you? I look around different news outlets and curate news I believe is interesting or helpful for our demographic…and lately there has been a lot to talk about. We might as well dive into the most talked about story at the top…that would be the halftime show of the last week’s football championship.
I selected this graphic specifically because it is blurry and the opinions of J Lo’s performance have been blurry and vast as well. There are so many angles to discuss, but I have decided to stick with this column in The New York Times Style Section. I hope all of you will be able to read this and that it is not subscription protected. The article, J Lo and the Power of 50 by Vanessa Friedman, said, “But the total J. Lo effect was kind of mesmerizing: an in-your-face demonstration of a woman glorying in her own physicality, and a dare anyone who might render judgment based on a number.” So, I ask what you thought…was the performance a powerful, empowering statement for women over 50? If you can’t get the NY Times, try this one Your Amazement at J. Lo is Ageist as Hell.
Would love to hear your thoughts and if you want to discuss other opinions from the show, then please do…but I would like to ask that we stay clear of political discussions…they just get too emotional and dicey these days. I am sure you understand.
This week friends were discussing the fun train trips available in the United States, so I thought you might enjoy 6 Unforgettable Train Trips brought to us from AARP, and information on the Wine Train Trips.
I do not know why this article surprised me so much, but the information about heart disease made sense to me and as a result, I added these to my grocery list for this week! Read (from Women First) This Anti-Aging Fruit Will Help You Lose Weight, Fight Diabetes, and Prevent Heart Disease.
Ok, when I saw this headline, 23 Foods with almost no Calories, I thought, well that is easy to list. But, there were a couple in here that pleasantly surprised me. See what you think? You might also want to read 3 Diet Changes Women over 50 should make right now from the Mayo Clinic.
Please feel free to comment on one or all! I thought it might be fun to look at shoes today…so many fun designs hitting the market right now…See what you think of these and think of warmer weather!
I leave you with this optimistic aging quote for the day:
“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” ~Sophia Loren
