Vacation Workouts

I came down to the Cape with Nick on June 30th and I still haven’t left! I’m currently staying at my mom’s. It’s been so nice having family around to help with Tommy and while we miss Nick who is working back in Boston during the week, he isn’t home during the day. Having another […]

What To Bring To The Beach For Your Baby

I grew up going to the beach in the summertime on Cape Cod. From personal experience, I know not all babies like the beach and was nervous Tommy might be one of them. I’m on Cape Cod for the week and am happy to report back that we in fact have a baby who loves […]

Surviving My First Night Away

Last week, I spent my first night away from Tommy. I attended the CBC Summer House in Nantucket while Nick’s mom stayed with Tommy during the day. First, I cried saying good bye to my baby. He was so cuddly before I left, like he knew I needed to get in extra love. When I […]

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 […]

Contest: Snacking Elevated – Transform Your Break Room

I’ve partnered with barkTHINS today to share a fun opportunity with you guys. First, barkThins are delicious Fair-Trade ingredient certified dark chocolate combined with non-GMO project verified ingredients like almonds, pretzels, toasted coconut and pumpkin seeds.

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 […]

Memorial Day Weekend Wedding in Chapel Hill

On Thursday, the “Fit” family flew down to Raleigh, North Carolina for a very special wedding. One of Nick’s college besties was getting married and he was a groomsman. We chose to bring Tommy along and hire a sitter to come to the hotel. Logistically it could not have worked out better. I called the […]

My First Mother’s Day Weekend

A year ago this weekend, I told my Mother we were expecting a baby. It’s incredible to think of all that has happened in 12 months. My requests were to sleep in, workout and eat some good food. When I woke up at 6:30 with T, Nick took him downstairs so I could sleep in. […]

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 […]

This Week In Dinners So Far…

This week, we ordered dinner from Just Add Cooking. I chose a chicken, fish and vegetarian option. The vegetarian option was actually a soup created by Boston chef Jeremy Sewall, who owns two of my favorite restaurants in the city, Row 24 and Island Creek Oyster Bar. He has another recipe featured for this week’s […]
