I got to hangout with my friend Caitlin yesterday! She arrived in Boston late on Sunday night for a speaking engagement yesterday morning, so she stayed with me out in the ‘burbs. It was great to see her””even if it was for a short period of time. We always have so much to chat about! Breakfast When Caitlin woke up yesterday morning, we both had one thing on our minds: Marylou’s Coffee! Of course, Murphy…

Here’s my final Lose the Dough check-in! (Please ignore the unflattering photo. 😕 ) June 17, 2010 Weight: 131 pounds Body Fat: 21.2% BMI: 22.2 Waist: 25.75 inches Abdomen: 28 inches Hips: 37 inches My numbers didn’t change that much since January, but I definitely see some progress there!! 😀 My ultimate goal for Lose the Dough wasn’t necessarily to lose weight, but instead, to tone up and look buff for my 30th birthday. For…

Healthworks really knows how to throw a party! Last night, along with 19 other bloggers, I was invited to Healthworks’ first ever Blogger Bash at their Back Bay location. When I arrived, I changed into my workout gear and then enjoyed a light snack of virgin RIPE cocktails and Pop Chips. I ended up drinking some coconut water too. We also got hooked-up with the most amazing swag bags!! Inside was a City Sport t-shirt,…

I loved reading about everyone’s nicknames on this morning’s post. So funny! Some of them are really good! 😆 After I published the post, I realized that I never shared my funny/embarrassing nicknames, so here they are: Peter, Llama, Christine, and Tiner. Each of which has their own little story! (Just click on the link for the corresponding story.) Snack Mid-morning my stomach started to grumble, so I snacked on a piece of Ezekiel bread with…

I’m finally sitting down to lunch right now. It’s 4 o’clock and WAY past my lunchtime! I was about to eat my arm, I was so hungry! 😯 Anyway, onto my May check-in for Lose the Dough! Lose the Dough I made a little progress this month– not a lot, but still progress. I guess all of those desserts didn’t do too much damage! 😉 Weight: 131.4 pounds Body Fat: 21.2% BMI: 22.2 We forgot…

Tonight, I attended a wonderful wine tasting at the newly-opened Boston Wine Exchange. The event was hosted by Healthworks, and it included a number of seasonal wines, food from Roly Poly, and raffle prizes. It definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a Tuesday night! 😉 The Boston Wine Exchange is a new shop in the Financial District that sells high-quality wine, spirits, and beer. They also have a fancy-schmancy wine tasting station as well…

Let me start off by saying that I don’t really like pop music. Ok, I guess I like it, but I don’t love it. I mostly like pop because it makes for some great workout music. Artists like Kelly Clarkson, Pink, and Britney always seem to get me motivated. But, typically, my favorite genres of music are classic rock, 80’s rock, and singer/songwriters, like David Gray and Ray Lamontagne. With that being said, I have…

Hi, guys! After blogging about breakfast, I headed downtown for a BURN class at Healthworks. BURN is a hard-core treadmill workout, but it is designed to challenge all fitness levels– you don’t need to be a superstar runner to take a class. You can even walk the BURN class and still get an amazing workout. For 50-minutes, you work between treadmill intervals and strength training circuits, which maximizes your workout efficiency, so you burn a ton of…

Today is flying by! Holy cow! 😯 After breakfast, Beth and I headed to Healthworks for a workout. Beth had never tried Body Pump, so she joined me for a class. I think she really liked it! 😀 Beth even mentioned looking for some Body Pump classes in San Francisco, so she could do it back home. Cool! Lunch After Body Pump, we headed back to our apartment to shower-up and eat some lunch. The…

Mondays are becoming my busiest day of the week! Holy moly! 😯 They’re supposed to be my day off to catch up with blog stuff and working on my book, but they never seem to turn out that way. Usually, I’m running around like a crazy person! Ok, let’s recap my day so far… Snack Before heading to Healthworks for a workout, I munched on an apple and a Vega Whole Food Vibrancy bar. I…

Monday has turned into quite the busy day! Holy moly! 😯 I feel like I’ve been running around like a chicken with its head cut off all day long! Woah. Anyway, let’s get to it! Snack Mid-morning, I did a little baking in preparation for my afternoon trip to the gym. I eat breakfast so early in the morning that by the time Body Pump rolls around at noon, I’m starving! I decided to deal…

Good morning! Happy Friday! So, I reread everyone’s comments last night, slept on it, and I have decided that counting calories is not the best option for me right now. I realize the benefits of counting calories, but the cereal thing that happened the other night was 100% related to apartment search stress (and probably some book writing stress too). I thought Mal and I found renters for our place and found a new place…

Wow, guys. Thank you sooooo much for all of your wonderful and supportive comments on my last blog post. Holy moly! I’m definitely feeling the love! As I was reading each of your comments, I started to feel so much better. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one dealing with these same struggles. And, THANK YOU for all of your words of wisdom. The comments were all over the place in regard…

Many thanks for all of your wonderful comments about my Lose the Dough game plan. Hopefully, it gives you some ideas for your own Lose the Dough challenge! 😀 I’m really excited for its “official” start tomorrow– 5 months exactly to my 30th birthday. Five month is a long time! I hope you guys are on board for the long-haul. In keeping with my Lose the Dough challenge, I got my butt to Healthworks despite the…

I’m really trying not to freak out about this radio interview, but my stomach is FULL of butterflies! Ugh, I hate that feeling. 😕 A bunch of you guys asked about my radio interview. It will be turned into a podcast and available on iTunes next week, so I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s up. Hopefully, it’s worth listening to! Mid-morning Snack On my way into the office this morning, I stopped…
