Thanksgiving + BFX and Turnstyle “Reviews”

Last week, we celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a family of 3. We spent the first part of our long weekend up in Maine and then came back to Boston on Friday. For the first time since I was probably in 8th grade, I did not go out the night before Thanksgiving. It’s usually my favorite […]

I’m Going Back! New Mommy and Me Workout in Boston

I have an exciting announcement! Starting Monday November 29th, I’m returning to teaching and will be teaching a Mommy and Me workout in Boston. Come break a sweat after Thanksgiving and work off some off the pecan pie and stuffing. Put it on your calendar right now. The first Monday after the Holiday weekend, you […]

ClassPass, Is This The End?

ClassPass announced yesterday that they would no longer be offering their unlimited plan. It started out as just $99 and eventually crept up to $180 and yet was still unsustainable due to members attending at time multiple classes a day. You see, gyms thrive off their monthly memberships that don’t get used. That’s how Planet […]

My First Dose of Halloween As A Parent Is Not What I Expected

I had no idea how big of a deal Halloween was as a parent of a young child. We were warned to buy a costume early as the good ones would likely sell out. We decided to buy Tommy a shark costume from Pottery Barn Kids in September. I planned to be a shark victim […]

These days, I’m all about efficiency. If there is a faster way to do something, that is route I go. I like a good home cooked meal but after putting Tommy to bed, it’s often the last thing I want to do. Last night, Nick and I tried out The Foodery for the first time […]

Another Healthy Place To Grab a Bite To Eat in Back Bay, Dig Inn

I first discovered Dig Inn while visiting New York City for work a couple of years ago. When I heard they were opening up in Boston this summer, I couldn’t wait to try it. I remembered it being good but not overly health oriented. They either must have revamped the menu or I remembered it incorrectly […]

Pressed Is Now Open in South End!

I’ve been patiently waiting for the South End location of Pressed to open and finally this week it did! I’ve known for a long time that they would be taking over the space Recycle Studio once occupied (and now moved to Union Park) and I’m glad that the South End now has a vegan, veggie-centric […]

Mommy and Me Workout at Healthworks Back Bay in Boston

I found another fitness class in Boston where you can bring your baby with you a couple weeks ago. Reader Erica told me about a class held at the Healthworks Back Bay location and it took me 4 months to finally make it! Using my ClassPass membership, I booked a spot for the Wednesday class […]

BBQ Cauliflower Chickpea Tacos

I regularly complain about not being able to cook satisfying vegetarian dinners. This week, I found a keeper that is simple and will surprise you at how filling it is. I ordered 3 dinners through Just Add Cooking last week. The first meal we made, I had before during an event in the fall. When […]

Studio Review: EveryBodyFights, Road + Triathlon Class

EveryBodyFights (EBF), formerly known as The Club by George Foreman III, is one of my favorite gyms on ClassPass but alas they do not have child care so I haven’t been in a while. Since the last time I went, they’ve expanded to Watertown and are opening another location in New York soon. I went […]
