I said, “Maybe next year…”  After a successful Chicago Marathon in October, […]

This morning during my Sunday yoga class, my teacher Erica said, “Hold the pose for one last breath for that extra Snickers. I did that too this week.” I smirked because I knew it rang true for many in the class, including myself. This past week I wanted to do a 3-day juice cleanse. After […]

I can’t believe I do not have a Boston travel tips post on where to go, what to eat and what to see, etc. I can tell you that Boston has very few restaurants that are 100% dedicated to healthy grub. Sweetgreen is one of the very few in actual Boston (I’m excluding Cambridge, Newton, […]
