Thoughts on Chrissy Teigen and Holiday Weight Gain

I run hot and cold with Chrissy Teigen. I generally enjoy her and her social media antics. Sometimes, she is a bit  too much (even she admits she just calls people out for entertainment purpose) but I do love this confession she recently gave to Today: “Anyone in the public eye, we have all the help we […]

How I Got Back To My Pre Baby Weight

Six days ago, my baby boy turned 9 months. This once was a fitness blog and while I still make time regularly to exercise, my first priority is him. I set an unrealistic goal to get back to my pre-baby body. Then I pushed it back, and pushed it back some more. These deadline extensions were […]

My Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide BBG Review

A lot of people have asked me about the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide. I didn’t want to review a product I hadn’t tried so after I had a bunch of friends this summer ask me my opinion, I decided to give it a go. A year ago, someone sent me a copy of the PDF […]

It’s Going Down For Real

Like many of you, for me the week after Labor Day is like the first week of January. Time to get your shit together. Time to stop drinking during the week, eating ice cream sundaes just because and making better choices for your body all around. It’s not a weight thing anymore for me. It’s […]

How I Find Motivation To Workout & Summer Workout Inspiration

Since becoming a mom, lots of things have gotten shorter in time. Trips to the grocery store, showers, sleep at night, dinner and meal prep. It’s funny how my workouts used to be an hour long and now I’m happy to get 30 minutes. Part of my workout inspiration is honestly working off the summer […]

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 […]

Postpartum Weight Loss Journey

On my blog, I’ve been documenting my weight loss since giving birth. However, on YouTube, I was waiting until I had lost all the weight. That hasn’t happened but it was time to publish the video. We started shooting updates 3 weeks postpartum. Then we shot another around 11 weeks and then at 19 weeks. […]

update 5/24 7 pm: After being contacted by the Instagram star mentioned in this post, I’ve decided to remove their photo and likeness out of respect. They were not aware of the PR company pitching them to new mom bloggers like myself and is embarrassed. This is a case of bad PR but I still […]

Weight Loss Update and My Afternoon Pick Me Ups

Tommy is officially 4 months old this week. I am still 4-7 lbs heavier than my pre-baby weight but I no longer have a race to train for. This is the first time in 4 years that I have been without a fitness commitment or photo shoot scheduled. It’s a weird feeling. Typically, I’m training […]

How I Lose 10 lbs in 6 Weeks

Summer is 6 weeks away sorta… In New England, I don’t know why Memorial Day is considered the summer when really it starts the weekend of the 4th of July, right? At least that’s when I usually first wear a bathing suit or attempt to go in the ocean. However, 6 weeks is a good […]
