Healthy Kids Lunches for School | Nomsly Review

Tommy has only been in daycare part time for a month but already the lunchbox thing is a challenge. I like to be simple when it comes to meal time and I’m struggling except when I pack veggie straws and cheddar bunnies. I wouldn’t say he is a picky eater but he definitely is not an adventurous […]

My 5 Go To Breakfasts As a New Mom

I can remember having a 100 calorie English muffin for breakfast with spray butter at 22 years of age. Oh how the times have changed. My breakfasts are now at least 250 calories and made up of nutrient dense foods. Still breastfeeding Tommy in the middle of the night, I wake up starving! On top […]

This week, I am “tapering” for a 10-mile race with obstacles called The Urbanathlon.  I’ve been blogging for Men’s Health/Women’s Health as I train. I’m beginning to get nervous and hoping that my nutrition and training are on point for the week.  Here is a sample of my fitness training plan: Monday: 3-mile easy run […]

I Wasted 15 Minutes Of My Life Taking A Group Exercise Ab Class

While in New York, I always like to try new exercise classes. I wanted to try Barry’s Bootcamp which mixes a cardio treadmill workout with intense bootcamp strength training moves.
