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 […]

ClassPass Studio Review: BTone Fitness North End

I love the Lagree Method which is a style of Pilates performed on a Megaformer. The only place in Boston where you can do it is at Btone Fitness, which now has 5 studios in the area. I was a regular in Claudia’s class before getting pregnant and continued to go using my ClassPass during […]

ClassPass Studio Review: Recycle Studio South End

When I use ClassPass and go to new studios, I always write reviews but it recently came to my attention that I have never written them for some of my favorite spots in Boston including Recycle Studio. When they opened up their new location in the South End, it seemed like perfect timing to share […]

Week In Workouts: 8 Weeks Postpartum

I want to be honest when I share these postpartum fitness updates. Working out is a priority for me for a number of reasons. It alleviates my stress and any anxiety that the day/week may have brought on. It makes me feel like me again and is my me time. It’s the only time I […]

My First Post Natal Strength Training Session

Today, I finally stepped off the elliptical and walked into the weight room for the first time in over 5 weeks. I felt ready but wasn’t sure what I should start with so I met with a personal trainer at the South End location of Boston Sports Clubs®. I trained for my triathlon at this […]

The Nutrition Label To Always Check

My New Year’s Resolution for the past few years as I’ve shared on my blog has been to eliminate artificial sugars from my diet. Chewing gum was the last lingering item in my diet but my pregnancy oddly helped me kick that habit. However, even as savvy as I think I am, I still need […]

My Post Pregnancy Diet Plans + $100 Kohl’s Giveaway

Now that Tommy has arrived, I’ve started thinking about getting back to my pre pregnancy diet. I think pregnancy taught me a lot about what my body wants and needs to maintain a healthy, happy and confident weight. I found that when I ate what I wanted and craved, my body told me when I […]

Spinning in the 3rd Trimester + Thoughts on SoulCycle Back Bay

Exercising during pregnancy hasn’t been nearly as dreadful as I imagined. I actually still love it – mainly because I’ve reduced the intensity and frequency. I’ve been enjoying going to as many classes as I can because I know I won’t be able to once the little guy arrives. I mostly am going to yoga […]
