Look & Feel Your Best In
Your 40s, 50s, & Beyond!

And banish the belly fat without spending hours counting calories, cutting out foods you love, or doing endless workouts you hate!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how sick are you of dieting?

(10 being, “I’d rather do ANYTHING else – even file my taxes.)

I know, I know. You’re thinking more like 100. Name a diet, and you’ve tried it. And yet, here you are – in your 40s, 50s, or beyond, still wondering how to crack the code to lasting weight loss and wellness.

Even worse, you feel like your metabolism has gone on a permanent strike. No matter how hard you try, the extra weight refuses to budge.

It’s not like you expect to go back to your 20 or 30 something body – you’re happy to leave those years waaaaay in the past, thank you very much! – but a little less bulk in the belly area would be great! 

Plus, someone could’ve warned you that midlife hormonal changes also come with these “pleasant” side effects:

Belly bloat and an expanding waistline

Ugh, belly bloat. That uncomfortable feeling you have that makes you want to pop the top button of your jeans open – all the time.

To add insult to injury, your waistline is ever-expanding. A little bit every year. How is that even possible when you haven't changed a thing in the way you eat or exercise?!

A total lack of energy and constant “blah” feeling

Thanks to good old hormone imbalances, you feel physically and mentally exhausted 24/7. There's no other way to describe it other than you just feel BLAH.

No wonder you can barely make it to the gym. Those intense cardio sessions now leave you crawling sluggishly through your day, craving a major afternoon nap.

Loss of muscle tone and “different” fat storage

You’ve noticed a decline in your strength, balance, and flexibility, which you could learn to accept. But this whole deal of storing fat in new places? Not so much!

Your body feels more “squishy” and you're gaining fat where you've never had it before (ahem, around your belly!) What gives?!

And more “fun” things like...

  • hot flashes that have you peeling off clothing layers
  • night sweats that make you look like you got caught in a downpour
  • mood swings that have you up and down like a seesaw
  • insomnia that has you walking around like a zombie
  • anxiety that makes you want to curl up in bed and binge Netflix all day
  • and MORE.

.... cue the collective sigh

Ready for the GOOD news?

Despite what you’ve tried in the past, you can be the healthy, confident person who loves how she looks and feels. 

It starts with realizing that wellness in your 40s, 50s, and beyond requires a unique approach. One that’s focused on whole-body health, not just fitting into smaller jeans. 

Imagine a harmonious balance of mindset, nourishment, movement, stress management & hormone health to recapture your radiant self and make the next stage of your life the very BEST!

I know what you might be thinking…

“I don’t have time to make any big life changes.”

I get it. You’re super busy (*understatement of the year*). Between work, housing your boomerang children, and caring for aging parents, you’ve got A LOT going on.

And maybe you’ve never, ever put yourself first because you felt you weren’t worthy of it. 


But you deserve to take care of yourself. You need to take care of yourself. And when you do, you’ll be happier and more energized for it. (No more Case of the Blahs!)

Plus, my approach to wellness is all about BALANCE. (See what I did there? 😉)  You’ll learn how to create small, healthy habits that lead to BIG changes – without major overwhelm or completely disrupting your schedule. 

Ready to step into the best stage of your life?

Want a sneak peek?


Module 1: Mindset

Fun Fact: Many of my clients come to BALANCE considering mindset an afterthought. However, they soon realize it’s often the most impactful part of their journey! When things get uncomfortable or inconvenient, your mindset is what will keep you on track. Similarly, if you ignore your mindset, then limiting beliefs and old habits will always come back to haunt you – creating that endless loop of *unsuccessful* diet after diet. (NOT FUN).

Get Ready To: Discover your “WHY,” change your thought patterns, start your day off right, create habits for lasting change, and more.

Module 2: Nourish

How to heal your relationship with food, and finally have food freedom

Totally baffled about what to eat for weight loss and wellness? Maybe you’ve wondered things like: Are carbs good or bad? Is it OK to eat late at night? Should I be eating differently for my age and body type? And do I REALLY need to count calories? (Please say no!).

Don’t worry. we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you build a solid foundation of intuitive eating so you can fuel your body the right way (for you) and ditch diet culture for good! You’ll finally find food freedom for a healthier you.

Get Ready To: Discover how to eat more intuitively and nourish your body for health, energy and better aging (NO deprivation allowed)

Module 3: Hormone Health

Did someone say, “The Big Change”? The name sure is fitting, because everything feels like it’s changing before, during, and after menopause! And who knew that hormones affected SO many aspects of your day-to-day life … like your mood, energy, sleep quality, weight, and more? That’s why I’ve dedicated a full module to helping you not only understand your hormone health – but to optimize it.

Get Ready To: Choose micronutrients to complement your hormones, feel happier and more energized, get better sleep, learn if Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is right for you, and more.

Module 4: Movement for Living Well (and Longevity)

Do you have a love/hate relationship with exercise? (Love the results, hate the effort?). I’m not here to give you a free pass on exercise – because I believe movement and consistency are key – but I AM here to tell you that you can do it YOUR way.

The way that you enjoy and that works for you in this time of your life, Meanwhile, we’ll teach you the key fundamentals to movement methods for more energy, longevity, and healthy aging. We’ll help you create your own customized approach to movement while keeping you motivated!

Get Ready To: Define your goals and create a plan that fits your life. You’ll create your own customized approach to consistent movement.

Module 5: Stress Management

Ah, stress. Try as you might, it can be unavoidable. (Hello, family emergencies and last-minute work deadlines!). What matters most is how you manage it, especially if you seek lasting wellness. In this module, I’ll reveal a secret that’s made a world of difference in how I handle everyday stressors. I’ll also share how stress can affect your gut health (and why that’s important), as well as how to tell if you’re suffering from acute or chronic stress. The goal: A happier, more relaxed life!

Get Ready To: Learn ways to manage your stress, reframe your stress story, promote better digestion, understand why some stress is GOOD for you, and more.

Module 6: Continuing Your Journey

How frustrating is THIS … When you complete a new program, see great results, and then quickly revert back to the way things were? (Talk about an emotional roller coaster!) Instead, this program will teach you how to make changes that last.

In this module, we’ll focus on building on your habits for change so you’ll be set for the future. No more starting from scratch, and no more wondering what to do next. You’ll walk away with everything you need to keep living your best life!

Get Ready To: Implement everything you’ve learned in this program and achieve continued success!

And so much more

This program wouldn’t be called BALANCE if I didn’t include all of the most important aspects of a balanced life. That’s why there’s much more inside, like lessons on optimal sleep, hydration, and finding more purpose in life.

Hey, I’m Deanna!

Over 11 years ago, I was trying to figure out what was next for me. My second marriage had just ended and I felt ashamed and frustrated with my life. 

My children were becoming more self-sufficient, but my mother, who had always been a big influence in my life, needed more of my help.

I struggled with the physical changes in my body: the mental and emotional fatigue and my relationship with food. Welcome to perimenopause!

Counting calories no longer worked for me as my body stored fat differently. So I went to my tried-and-true method of fat-burning … cardio. Except that didn’t work either. I realized that I needed to make a change on a deeper level. I needed to think outside the box and try something new.

It was around this time I opened a Pure Barre studio. I loved the feeling of empowering women to be their best selves. I was giving them the tools to take control of their own lives. It gave my life meaning.

After my mother passed away and I became the caregiver of my step-father who suffered from Lewy Body dementia, I sold my Pure Barre studio and created the Well and Worthy Life blog to share my experience and help others. 

I became an IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition) certified Health Coach and have worked with hundreds of clients over the last 5 years. From that experience, I’ve found that the number one thing we all desire in life is BALANCE. 

But what does BALANCE mean? 

It means spending less time in the gym and more time with family; less time making meals and more time enjoying them; less time worrying about our bodies and more time celebrating them.  

I’ve learned that it’s the small habits that lead to big change. Consistency is the most difficult, yet most rewarding, attribute.  

Now in my late 50s, I’m thriving and feeling better than ever and I want to share my BALANCED Wellness Method with YOU!  I’ll teach you what took me years to learn so you can get on your way to living your balanced life. 

Can’t wait to see you inside!

In case you’re wondering…

This program is for you if: 

✔ You’re tired of the never-ending diet cycle where you lose weight, but always gain it back (and then some!). 

✔ You’re nearing or have already experienced menopause, and the “old” way of doing things just isn’t cutting it anymore.

✔ You want to be in a group of women just like you, who have the same struggles and who can help keep you motivated. 

✔ You’re 100% committed to having a better, more balanced life. 

✔ You’re ready for a transformation that lasts.

This program is NOT for you if: 

✖ You’re looking for another quick“fix.” What new diet can you try next??? 

✖ You haven’t yet experienced the “unique” symptoms of middle age (Lucky you!)

✖ You’d rather just figure this all out on your own and go through this stage of life by yourself. 

✖ You’re not ready to put in the work and are still kinda hoping for a magic pill. 

✖ You’re more focused on today than lasting, life-changing wellness. 

Here’s what some of my past clients had to say about BALANCE

Create Your Foundation To Better Wellness!

I want to make this one of the EASIEST decisions for you possible. I designed this program to specifically address the wellness issues of women in the peri & post-menopausal stage of life!

I truly believe you're going to love the BALANCE WELLNESS METHOD, and that it’s the right program if you're ready to feel and look your best at this stage of life!

I know if you take this leap into BALANCE, you'll be stepping towards making your second half of life your best!


I’m glad you asked, because BALANCE is so unique! I created it for women in peri & post-menopause – women who see wellness in a new light. It’s not only about how you look, it’s about how you feel. This program addresses many different facets. 


BALANCE is like no other program. It incorporates all the dynamics in wellness – nourishment for your body (and soul), movement to combat aging, positive mindset, stress management, meditation, and so much more. 

Great news! No, you don’t have to have Facebook to be part of the BALANCE community. The community and all the program materials are located inside the BALANCE app. You’ll be able to interact with me and the rest of the group all from there. You can access the app easily on your computer or mobile phone.  

Absolutely! My goal is to make the program work for you so that it is sustainable for your everyday life. I’ll show you my MASS method that will help you easily create your perfect wellness balance.

Intuitive Eating is a positive philosophy or mindset around how you nourish yourself. It’s about food appreciation, not deprivation. I’ll teach you how to eat intuitively for overall healthier nourishment and why I don’t believe in cutting out the foods you love completely.

You get 4 weeks of my guidance to learn the BALANCE Method strategies and to practice them. You also get weekly live group coaching sessions with me! 

After the 4 weeks, you may also have the option to continue on with me… but I’ll tell you more about that if you join the program 🙂

The LIVE group coaching session will be once a week at various times to accommodate as many people as I can. You’ll have the opportunity to send questions if you can’t attend and of course, you’ll also get access to the replays.

Yes, I will never deny you a glass of your favorite wine.  But I also want to  show you the ways in which alcohol affects your body post-menopause, and why limiting may improve your health and longevity.
