Guys, I took a yoga class yesterday! (I know, I’m as surprised as you are!) And it was 60 minutes long! AND I didn’t leave midway through due to boredom! 🙂 I’m generally not a fan of yoga, but I kind of liked the class that I took yesterday and might even go again. We did a few stretches that I definitely needed, so it might be motivation to keep with it. My upper back…

Hi, friends! Today I wanted to share something that’s been bugging me… and this might be a bit “controversial.” As a member of the wellness community, I’m no stranger to the pressure to be “zen” 24/7, and one of the ways to achieve this is by practicing yoga. I know yoga is supposed to be relaxing, and I totally believe that it is, can be, and will be for many, many people. I, however, am…

Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Friday! I’m not sure if you noticed, but I did a little less blogging this week. After my digital detox over the weekend, I realized that I really need to take care of myself and not work so much and, well, sleep, so that’s exactly what I did. I actually went back to bed a few mornings this week after feeding Q instead of starting my day at 5:00 AM (well,…

I eased back into CrossFit with, uh, 5 workouts last week. HA! That’s more than I went before I got pregnant! I just couldn’t stay away! But, seriously, I took it easy and didn’t push myself too hard. I was never super sore, so I just kept going to classes and before I knew it, I had racked up 5 visits. Man, it’s awesome to be back. It’s even better than I remember! Sunday: Off…

Yesterday, I was invited to a private media event to explore the newly opened Sports Club/LA in Chestnut Hill, and it was an awesome experience. You know how I loovvve fancy fitness clubs! Seriously, I wish I lived closer so I could work out there all the time. When I arrived at Sports Club/LA, I was warmly greeted, given a gift bag, and then taken to the locker room, so I could change into fitness gear, which…

I woke up yesterday morning and didn’t stop moving until my head hit my pillow late last night. I guess you could say my Saturday was filled will all-day action! Workout My morning started with a yoga class at Lululemon with my friend Kim. We heard there was a free class on Saturday morning, and neither of us had ever been to a Lululemon yoga class before, so we decided to check it out. It…

Do you have a lot going on? Is your To Do list a mile long? Don’t think you have enough time to work out? You might think your schedule is too busy to exercise, but you can maximize your time while tackling your To Do list at the same time. Check out these workouts that multitask, too! Two birds, one stone scone. Unwind with yoga Instead of unwinding with a cocktail or sitting in front…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! Breakfast Yesterday’s breakfast was a little random, but it was, oh, so delicious. Listen to this mix of goodies: mashed sweet potato with Coconut Cinnamon Apples, chopped walnuts, and a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter. Mmm! It was tasty, nutritious, and super-duper satisfying””the combination of ingredients keep me full for hours and hours. Making the Coconut Cinnamon Apples was really simple: Just slice up an apple (any variety will work)…

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Wellness by the Water Retreat, which is a one-day event with fitness, yoga, nutrition, spa services, and wellness. The organizers, Kendall Covitz and Celeste Platt, actually invited me last year, but I wasn’t able to attend, so I’m so glad Kendall reached out again. The retreat was such a nice way to spend the day! The event was held at the fancy-schmancy Lenox Hotel, located right in…

Brrrrr”¦ it’s chilly out there this morning. Single digits! Yikes! Does anyone else miss summer as much as I do? Wah. Now doesn’t the morning scene below look a lot nicer? [image source] Ok, it’s a beach in the Bahamas and not my backyard in southern Massachusetts, but you know what I mean, right? The image above is from an article about Lonely Planet’s Best Places to Get Fit in 2013. I really enjoyed reading…

Hello, hello! How’s your Wednesday treating you? I hope well! I’ve enjoyed a nice day so far. Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was a French Toast Breakfast Scramble with Teddie peanut butter, which, of course, I went back for a second and third scoop of. I was really hungry when I woke up this morning, so I also added some extra egg whites to my scramble. And I drank a glass of (decaf) iced coffee with…

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Usually, my plans for the night before Thanksgiving involve boozing-face with high school friends, but Mal and I signed up for a 5-mile road race tomorrow morning, so we’re having a low-key evening at home instead. Oh, how things have changed. I didn’t snap a ton of photos today, but here are a few from Instagram”¦ After breakfast, I took a yoga class. It was a Vinyasa Flow with lots of back-bends,…

Oh my gosh, I ate the best snack yesterday afternoon: sliced banana with peanut butter and Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter. Holy crap, it was delicious. That is all. Workout I was feeling kind of mellow yesterday afternoon, so I nixed CrossFit and went to yoga instead. I guess I was just in a funk. Usually, I’m pumped for CrossFit, but, yesterday, I just wanted a low-key workout. I took a 75-minute Vinyasa Flow class at…

Rise and shine, it’s time for yoga with Martha Stewart! My day started bright and early at Theodora‘s apartment. We were both invited to a yoga event with Martha Stewart this morning, so I spent the night on her couch (Theodora’s not Martha’s) last night. At 6:30 AM, we hopped in a cab to Grand Central Station for the event. Before the yoga class started, Martha came out and started snapping pictures of the event with…
