Studio Review: Studio Nantucket

On Tuesday, I left Tommy for the first time overnight. I cried when I left. I cried at the airport but as soon as I arrived on my favorite island, I was good. I missed the munchkin but I no more tears were shed. I flew to Nantucket from Hyannis for the Cercone Brown Company […]

Before Tommy, I didn’t have a gym bag really. I mean, I have gym bags, but I didn’t use them to shower at the gym. Now, I take full advantage of having someone watch my child so I can get cleaned up. Bloggers, like magazine editors, have products sent to them to try. Some make […]

Mommy and Me Workout at Healthworks Back Bay in Boston

I found another fitness class in Boston where you can bring your baby with you a couple weeks ago. Reader Erica told me about a class held at the Healthworks Back Bay location and it took me 4 months to finally make it! Using my ClassPass membership, I booked a spot for the Wednesday class […]

Studio Review: EveryBodyFights, Road + Triathlon Class

EveryBodyFights (EBF), formerly known as The Club by George Foreman III, is one of my favorite gyms on ClassPass but alas they do not have child care so I haven’t been in a while. Since the last time I went, they’ve expanded to Watertown and are opening another location in New York soon. I went […]

The New Mom Sleep Update + Bear Mattress Review

Did you know May is known as the “Sleep Better Month?” I didn’t. In 1985, the Better Sleep Council designated May as “Better Sleep Month” to help focus attention on the importance of sleep in leading a healthy, productive life. I get the importance, but I can’t really control my situation with an infant… Sleeping […]

Pittsburgh Half Marathon Recap with GNC

Running after giving birth wasn’t the most comfortable thing at first. I was nervous early on that I made a mistake accepting this challenge, but within a couple weeks, my doubts disappeared.  I thrive on challenges and stick to plans if I have deadlines. A race is the best deadline to get in shape I […]

Studio Review: Bar Method Boston

The next Boston studio to be reviewed on my ClassPass tour is Bar Method. My long time readers might remember that, I was a member of Bar Method for over a year before I started teaching at Barry’s Bootcamp in the fall of 2013. I was always a runner and lifter but wanted to try […]

5 Surprising Ways To Nutritiously Satisfy A Sweet Tooth After Dinner

I’ve always had a sweet tooth but I believe I’ve trained myself to want something sweet after I eat a meal. I wish I hadn’t and I’ve tried too many times to count to train myself to NOT want sugar after dinner but it’s easier said than done. Instead, I’ve found surprisingly healthy ways to […]

Infants + Sleep: Reviewing our Baby Favorites

“How are you doing?” “Are you sleeping at all? Is the baby sleeping?” Yep. These are the questions I get asked most often these days. And how an infant sleeps determines a lot in the beginning so selecting what they sleep in can be stressful before they arrive. After reading tons of reviews and researching […]

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 […]
