My First Long(ish) Trip Without Baby: Pumping + Working Out

Leaving your baby for the first time is HARD. The second time, you’re excited about sleeping but dreading the pumping game if still breastfeeding. You know how much of a pain it is when traveling. I was presented with a really cool opportunity to work with a brand I love in Los Angeles this week. […]

My Sweat Style Review

New subscription clubs are still coming out regularly, each with their own specific niche. The latest one that I tried was like StitchFix but for athletic apparel called Sweat Style. I did a review 3 years ago about a company named PV Body that had a similar pitch. Some of you may remember that I […]

Video: How I feel about running 13.1 miles 16 weeks postpartum this weekend

So you wanna run a destination half marathon 16 weeks after giving birth? Sounds like a great idea to get back in shape but be prepared for a few obstacles. Flying with an almost 4 month old has been keeping me up at night. I’m about to embark on my first work trip since having […]

The 5 Best Workouts To Do While Pregnant

Being a gym rat and health nut these days can be conflicting for woman who is pregnant. Apps do not tell you if your favorite new foods like kombucha or pressed juice are ok to drink. Some doctors are even still telling patients to keep their heart rates under 140, but you saw my Instagrams […]

Postpartum Update: Eats + Workouts + Birthday Fun

So I decided to start dieting on Monday and by dieting, I mean I only had one glass of wine and didn’t have any cupcakes or cookies. Success! Small steps one at a time. My original goal was to be back at my pre baby weight by my birthday. That was March 23rd and I’m […]

Half Marathon Training Update + My Long Run Breakfast Recipe Video

Last week, I went to two different classes that had child care for little ones like Tommy. It was awesome but that means, I wasn’t running. Since I either need to wake up before Nick goes to work (and pump before I leave) and run in the dark or go after work when it’s time […]

Six Weeks Postpartum! Fitness Update

Tommy is 6 weeks old today and that means he is eating like an animal. I guess there is a 6 week growth spurt and he has been hungry nonstop. It also means that it is time for my postnatal check up with my midwife. I actually had my appointment yesterday and was given the […]

My First Post Natal Strength Training Session

Today, I finally stepped off the elliptical and walked into the weight room for the first time in over 5 weeks. I felt ready but wasn’t sure what I should start with so I met with a personal trainer at the South End location of Boston Sports Clubs®. I trained for my triathlon at this […]

My First Postpartum Workout

First off, congrats to Tamra H for winning my Kohl’s $100 Gift Card giveaway. Thank you everyone who entered. Second, this weekend was a huge milestone for the Fit family with two firsts. I left Tommy at home with Nick for an hour and went to the gym for an easy workout. Tommy will be […]

My Postpartum Fitness Goal

When I first was asked to run the half marathon in San Francisco at 29 weeks pregnant, I googled every possible ‘running + pregnant + third trimester’ phrase. Then asked my doctor. I know it should have been the other way around. I completed the race, Tommy and Mommy were OK and the internet haters […]
