The Perils of Social Media While Being Pregnant

Second time around, I have been much less stressed about the baby being safe and healthy. I’m drinking coffee, I’m forgetting to take my prenatal vitamins and I’m not as paranoid about waking up in the middle of the night if I’m sleeping on my back. However, I haven’t been totally relaxed. How can I […]

The Best Gift For New Moms

The best gifts for a new mom might not be what you think. Mom likely will say she doesn’t need anything and she might be right from a materialistic standpoint. What she needs though is time. Time to be by herself, to go for a run, get her nails done or just take a nap. […]

Little Journey, Baby Food at ALDI!

Feeding a child is frustrating. Allegedly it takes 12 times for them to try certain foods before they will eat it. Tommy will love something one day, so I’ll go out and buy it in bulk and then refuse to eat it the next day. Does he not like the taste? Is he not hungry? Is […]

Class Review: Mom and Baby Barre Fusion Asana Charlestown

There is childcare at many gyms and studios these days but still very few Mommy and Me fitness classes in Boston right now. There are two that I have tried, one in Back Bay at Xtend Barre and one in Charlestown at Asana Charlestown with my friend Jenn Phelan (who is pregnant with #2). The […]

10 Things I Wish Knew Before Baby

My Post Pregnancy Diet Plans + $100 Kohl’s Giveaway

Now that Tommy has arrived, I’ve started thinking about getting back to my pre pregnancy diet. I think pregnancy taught me a lot about what my body wants and needs to maintain a healthy, happy and confident weight. I found that when I ate what I wanted and craved, my body told me when I […]

Third Trimester Strength Training PreNatal Workout

When it comes to working out during your third trimester, while safe, you may simply be too uncomfortable. Luckily since I was active throughout, I could continue a modified fitness routine to the end. My last workout was an interval treadmill routine alternating between inclines at 3 mph. My second to last workout was a […]

Pregnancy Update: Week 36 + Due Date Guess Giveaway

Baby is more or less fully cooked at this point. Some doctors consider your baby full term at 37 weeks, others at 39. Wednesday marks my 37 week change over date and it’s very weird to think that I am currently 9+ months pregnant! Baby Update Well, no guessing here, we had an ultrasound last […]

My Last Class at Barry’s + Favorite Sprinting Playlist

This morning I taught my last class at Barry’s Bootcamp in Boston before my “maternity leave.” I honestly feel like I could keep teaching but I with my “big event” one week for today which as I mentioned is hopefully not a baby, I just didn’t see the point in trying to teach at 38 […]
