When I found out I was pregnant, I was determined to continue working out. I had heard many people say they didn’t have the energy, it was uncomfortable or their doctor told them to stop. Until I had any of these signs, I planned to live my life as I had with the except of […]


And so it begins, the final stretch of summer packed with travel. On Friday, Roomie and I headed up to Portland, ME to visit his family. Portland is a pretty “hot” city right now that is changing every day. From the plethora of small batch breweries to the amazing foodie scene, its appeal has dramatically […]


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 […]


I used to be jealous of NYC and LA for having so many fitness studios to choose from but those feeling are quickly dissipating.

Today in Boston, the sun in shining and my legs are screaming. Oh what a difference 24 hours makes. Here is part 2 of my marathon recap. You can read part 1 here. The Start At the starting line, there was a sign to my hometown. Made me smile despite the nerves. I was in […]


I finished running the Boston Marathon today in 3 hours and 57 minutes – hitting my goal by just 3 minutes! I still can’t believe I did it. Let’s start at the beginning…  On Sunday morning I woke up at 3 am for some stupid sale you might have heard of… #LillyForTarget. I should have […]
