3 easy ways to kick start your Spectacular New Year


Feeling Spectacular means eating in a healthy way. Think through your food selections. Make your nutrition choices something worthy of the Spectacular life you will be living! That means you quit the all-day snacking. Stop reaching for the junk food. And forget about skipping meals. Feel better about your life by feeding your body better. Picture yourself in something SaSS-Y! (rather than sweatpants.)

Drink More!

Water that is. Replace some of the calories from juice, soda and alcohol. Fewer calories could mean weight loss. Which always makes us feel better. And feeling better is a big part of living a Spectacular life. Refocus on that SaSS-Y! image you generated earlier in this post.

Be Merry!

Can’t live a Spectacular life if you are wallowing in a negative attitude! Bust out of it! You decide how you feel about your circumstance. Turn that frown upside down. You don’t have to whistle a happy tune, but you do have to reframe your thinking. Find a joke, silly song or comical sit-com rerun to get your mood elevated each day.

Sixty and Spectacularly Solo – Yes!

Living alone doesn’t mean lonely.

I began this blog in the hope of helping others feel more comfortable with limited interaction and lack of contact that is sure to continue throughout 2021.

Coach Wanda McMullen

So many people are having a hard time adjusting to isolation.

I want to share thoughts and tips that will find you – at the end of the year, feeling you not only survived, but that you thrived.

A dear friend and I enjoyed music and concerts together. Sometimes coffee or lunch. Since March 2020, we have not been able to share the music together. No lunches, either. But we managed to have a few distance ‘coffees’. Two older women, sitting outdoors at a coffee shop. At least six feet apart, with masks on when we were not drinking.

A common theme emerged during our discussions: some people are lonely within their isolation. Having a hard time finding ways to make life more comfortable while waiting for life to return to normal. The sad fact: distance and isolation will continue to be the norm for quite a while. We also understand that being overwhelmed with anxiety and uncertainty make it difficult to see the sunshine through the clouds. Particularly for those living alone.

Thus, Sixty and Spectacularly Solo was born. And Yes! even the solo life can be joyful. Living alone does not mean lonely. Join the search for the spectacular moments!

I am a newbie!

I am new at blogging. So please: cut me some slack as I work to master the skills!

I have always been an introvert. But for most of my life I have had to show up in a more extroverted way. And those extrovert skills are slowly eroding as I bask in the comfort of aloneness. I need a method to exercise and strengthen those skills.

That is why, in my sixties am I venturing into this new endeavor. A way to help myself while (I hope) helping others. Sort of like coaching, but without a specific client.

I want to be a catalyst! (More about McCatalyst Co at a later time.) To provide others a way to move their life in a direction that is more Spectacular. A SaSS-Y! way of thinking.

Well. not just any others. Primarily women, in their sixties that live alone. Anyone can join in, comment or make suggestions. But please don’t feel put-off if things don’t resonate with you. ‘Cause everything isn’t for everybody!’ 😉
