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 […]

Pregnancy Update: Week 36 + Due Date Guess Giveaway

Baby is more or less fully cooked at this point. Some doctors consider your baby full term at 37 weeks, others at 39. Wednesday marks my 37 week change over date and it’s very weird to think that I am currently 9+ months pregnant! Baby Update Well, no guessing here, we had an ultrasound last […]

Boston Healthy News: SweetGreen Pru now Open + Other Healthy Spots

This weekend, I was invited to a blogger brunch at sweetgreen to celebrate their fourth Boston location which is inside the Pru in Hynes Court. It’s right next to the Sheraton entrance and by Au Bon Pain. I love SG but stopped going as much as I used to because of the ridiculously long line. […]

Whole Heart Provisions Review: New Vegan Restaurant in Boston

A few weeks ago, I ventured outside of my neighborhood (gasp!) and paid a visit to one of the newest vegan healthy restaurants around town in Allston, Whole Heart Provisions. It actually is in the same space that used to be occupied by Root. If you are still feeling bloated after Thanksgiving, give this spot […]

Start Your Thanksgiving Day With This 10-minute Energizing Yoga Flow

What a difference a year makes. I can’t believe just 12 months ago that we were bracing for a serious snow storm here in New England… it’s going to be in the 50’s here by Friday! It was also a year ago that I “went out hard” and woke up with a festive hangover. I […]
