Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live – and I have quite the roundup today! Most of the questions are short and sweet, so I have a total of 6 to answer for you with a super common question at the end that I typically ignore because it’s kind of… well, you’ll see… but I answered it below. Ok, here we go…   [adthrive-in-post-video-player video-id=”hc5dWyUO” upload-date=”2019-09-06T15:07:24.000Z” name=”Meal Prep Breakfasts, Car-Friendly Snacks…

I recently had the opportunity to connect with Lindsay Reilly, the creator of the Bravery Band. The Bravery Band represents the fearless and unstoppable person you can be. It’s just one word and five digits, but involves countless stories. Whether you’re a hero in the military or a hero within yourself conquering life’s everyday battles, there is someone brave in all of us. The Bravery Brand represents the American Dream that anything in life is…

Hi, guys! I hope you had a nice weekend! Mine was a lot of fun and included an overnight “staycation” with some girlfriends in Boston. We’re all moms and don’t getaway for the night all too often, so we took full advantage of our mini vaca! 🙂 I partnered with HotelTonight to reserve our hotel rooms for the night. Never heard of HotelTonight? Well, you are in for a treat. It’s a really cool app….

DOWNLOAD THE FREE MARATHON TRAINING PLAN I always wanted to run the Boston Marathon, so when Stonyfield approached me about running it, it was an opportunity that I just couldn’t refuse. I was only 3-months postpartum and running just a few miles at a time– often with lots of walking breaks mixed in– so I really didn’t think I could run 26.2 miles. Obviously, physically, it was going to be a challenge, but, as a brand new…

The very first spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures in Boston was a huge success, and the event raised more than $40,000 to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America(CCFA)! Woohoo! The first ever spin4 event launched last year in 9 cities across the country with 650 people in attendance raising nearly $400,000. This year, the indoor cycling relay will be held in over 20 cities with Boston being one of the first. There isn’t a cure (yet) for Crohn’s…

Hi, guys! I had SUCH an amazing time in Austin last week. What an awesome city. I already want to go back! I had the opportunity to visit (and eat my way through) Austin, thanks to VERTS Mediterranean Grill. VERTS? Never heard of it? It was new to me too, and it’s because VERTS is an Austin-based fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant. They serve healthy, customizable pitas, salads, and bowls, and all of their food is made from scratch daily…

(You can thank Mal for this amazing blog post title! Haha!) Hi, friends! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! I’m just popping in real quick to share some adventures from our weekend.

Hi, guys! I ran the Tufts 10K for Women on Monday (Columbus Day) and had so much fun! What an awesome race! I haven’t run the Tufts 10K since 2003 (we’re usually in Newport on race day), but it’s a race that I always recommend to local runners, especially newbies, because it was one of my first. It’s a mostly all-women’s race, so there’s plenty of support and motivation, and I remember having such a…

Hi, friends! Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful dinner hosted by Google Express, a new, same-day delivery service that is making its debut around the country with Boston being one of its first markets. Oh, Google, what will you think of next? It sounds like an amazing service and one that I would use all the time. I mean, hello, same-day delivery? One less errand to run? Sign me up! The event was held…

Hi, friends! So, our morning started out nice and normal like a lot of mornings… We ate breakfast, said goodbye to Dad, and then we did some cruising around the living room with Quinn’s learning walker. (He frickin’ loves this thing!) Then, we ran some errands, which included a stop at Starbucks for an iced latte for Mom. (Has anyone tried Starbucks small-batch cold brew? Any good? I want to try it soon.) Then, we came home,…

Yesterday afternoon I was invited to attend a media preview at the new Sweetgreen location in Fort Point, so I headed into town to see what it was all about. Never heard of Sweetgreen? It’s basically a fast food salad shop that sources local and organic ingredients for their menu. Food-wise, it’s pretty incredible, but the company also actively promotes a healthy lifestyle in their community””from hosting “pay what you want” days and farm-to-school programs…

Readers often ask me for my recommendations for what to do in Boston. I typically refer them to my I Think I’ll Go To Boston post, which highlights some of my favorite suggestions for where to stay, what to do, and where to eat. Readers have told me that they find this post helpful, but I recently realized it’s almost 2.5 years old and might need a little updating. Some of the recommendations in that post…
