From the moment I learned I was pregnant, I wanted to know what the sex of my baby was going to be. I knew I was not going to be able to wait. Luckily, Nick wanted to know too. At first, I thought we might be able to find out at 10 weeks. There are […]


Many of you may be starting your training for a fall marathon this month if you haven’t already. As the mileage increases, you may notice aches and pains that didn’t once exist. While training for my first marathon last summer, I never saw a massage therapist and I should have. I tried to work out […]


Father’s day always seems to sneak up on me despite all the advertisements on TV. To be honest, my father (who reads this blog religiously despite it being for young women), would prefer a personalized thoughtful card, which usually works out to my benefit given my tendency for procrastination. He always says that he doesn’t […]


We are lucky in Massachusetts to have Trader Joe’s, Wegmans, Whole Foods, Aldi and fairly health food friendly large grocery store chains in most counties. I will be the first to admit I take it for granted. I had never heard the word “food desert” until about 8 years ago. Food deserts are defined as […]

Roomie and I timed a vacation this year at the end of my marathon training. He backpacked through most of Europe in college so we decided to choose 3 cities had not previously […]


If you love barre and you live in Boston, you should be excited to know that FlyBarre is now open in the Prudential. Located right inside FlyWheel, it’s weird now to think this studio is a new addition – where did the space come from!?  I went to class at 10 am with my girl […]


My Fit Trip to the Dominican Republic was a much needed break from the East Coast tundra. When I returned I felt energized and recharged thanks to the active nature of my stay. Here is my final post from my visit sharing some of my favorite activities, restaurants and accommodations. 1. Iguana Mama An adventure […]


Last time I came to LA, I visited SoulCycle. A few readers insisted that I try Cycle House during my next visit so I figured I had to go here, right? I also saw it on one of the 5 episodes I seen of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and heard this is where Madonna […]
