Restaurants

So I know this is a fitness blog, but I had to share the gorgeous pictures from a wedding I went to this weekend. It was for two of Roomie’s college friends up in Vermont at the groom’s family farm. It was the most picturesque wedding I think I’ve been to. After landing back in [...]

After a week on the island of Nantucket, I am back on mainland… for now. Vacations are often not the most relaxing experiences. Despite needing some needed rest after my sister’s wedding last weekend, I am utterly and officially drained. The end of summer is always bitter sweet. While on one hand, I’m always sad [...]

After 9 nights in Argentina, I am en route back to my hometown. This has been an incredible vacation. I believe I have never eaten more steak or drank more wine in such a short time period. I also feel as though I have had enough dulce de leche to satisfy a lifetime. I know [...]

After dinner on Saturday, my friend Andrea brought roomie and I to a couple [...]

As a Bostonian, people have always suggested that I would fall in love with Chicago.  I am happy to admit that all those people were right.  Chicago is a beautiful, clean city with amazing restaurants, parks and bars.  I travelled to the windy city for the Men’s Health Urbanathlon.  It was held Saturday, October 15th and [...]

To escape the heat, I left Boston last Thursday.  It was going to be 103 in the city, and my lovely apartment does not have AC.  My mother who live in Cape Cod however, does! I went to a family friend’s gym for my strength training routine on Friday morning.  I can always wake up [...]

Today, I went to Panera Bread to do some blogging in a climate controlled environment.  Boston is hitting close to 90-degree weather and I do not have air conditioning.  Since I was taking up a table, I decided to have some lunch as well.  Panera lists their calorie counts on the menu, even though I [...]

July has been one of the best and busiest months I have had in a long time!  Good weather, friends, family and will power!  Yes, will power.  I’ve managed to stick with my training plan for the most part even though I’ve been traveling a ton.  I just finished posting at CrushingTheCourse.com and wanted to [...]
