Boston

I ate, I drank and now I’m dead tired. Cyber Monday must be the least productive work day on the calendar. I’m getting emails from every shopping website I’ve ever visited and lacking focus. I indulged in Thanksgiving with little regard to what I put in my mouth, feeling satisfied and in control but excited [...]

I woke up this morning to 8 press releases sent to me overnight talking about Black Friday deals. This is just the start of the Holiday madness. They say productivity dips down pretty low between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I already spend 45 minutes perusing the ridiculous sales on Gap.com this morning so I’m already a [...]

How I motivate myself

September 26, 2013 · 7 comments

On Saturday, we read through our manuals and were put through a full class. I woke up Sunday morning with my biceps screaming at me. Just one 3 minute interval [...]

The fitness scene in Boston is changing! When I first moved here 7 years ago, you joined a big box gym. For me, that was Boston Sports Club or Gold’s Gym, the affordable options for new grads. Today, there are barre studios in most neighborhoods and cycling is the next trend to take over. Recycle [...]

Happy Hump Day! Today, I woke up early for a quick 30-minute Booty Call (that’s TIU talk for light cardio before breakfast) and enjoyed a green juice by The Ripe Stuff before hopping in the shower to get ready for a day full of shooting new college friendly recipes!  We shot 4 videos, 3 food [...]

On Monday, I began a 3 day juice cleanse from The Ripe Stuff. It was my first since November! I’ve done a bunch of one and two day cleanses in between but never felt the need to do a full on 3 day like I did after traveling for a month and celebrating the 4th [...]

It seems like forever ago that there wasn’t a single bar studio in Boston but really it was just 2 years ago! The Bar Method opened up shop exactly 24 months ago tomorrow. I’ve been a member for over a year and have never been so proud of how my arms and abs look, despite [...]
