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. Since I crave chocolate most hours of the day, it’s perfect for a little “something sweet” after a meal […]

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 […]

Postpartum Update: Eats + Workouts + Birthday Fun

So I decided to start dieting on Monday and by dieting, I mean I only had one glass of wine and didn’t have any cupcakes or cookies. Success! Small steps one at a time. My original goal was to be back at my pre baby weight by my birthday. That was March 23rd and I’m […]

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 […]
