In 4th grade, my dream job was to be Katie Couric on The Today Show. Then came along The View. It started later, which would mean I’d get to sleep past 5 am, so then that became my dream job. Then in college, realistically I wanted to be a journalist, preferably on camera but I was open to writing for a magazine or newspaper. I think it’s safe to say, without having to move to LA or NYC, I’ve created a nice little makeshift dream job for myself here in Boston with what I’ve got going on YouTube. I still haven’t felt much like a journalist though until now. Having just turned 28 exactly one week ago, I’m proud to add another title to my professional job description as blog contributor to Boston Magazine.
Boston Magazine is the leading monthly mag here in Massachusetts. It’s one of my favorite and always has interesting articles that relate to my state. While I’m not writing for the print edition, I am writing for Hub Health which is a new blog section of their website. As my blog readers, you know I love taking different classes around my city and when I travel. My first post compares the benefits of leaving your gym membership behind and signing up exclusively with a small boutique studio like The Bar Method.

In regards to writing down I eat everyday… it’s going well. I keep forgetting to write dinner. I have been loving my banana soft serve as a sweet treat at night but am eating more calories during the day so it’s not really necessary. Unnecessary dessert is a habit I wanted to break with my journaling. I’ve been honest and that is what I wanted. What has been the hardest part for you if you are following along?
I’ve also been obsessed with Ezekial bread. Yesterday I had one of Jamie’s Eason’s Turkey Meatloaf Muffins with side salad. For “dessert” I had a piece of Ezekial toast with The Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Cream Cheese Spread in Cinnamon Cream 1/3 less fat. I found that when I had a slice at lunch I felt more satisfied even when the calories were identical.
Today, I just had a simple open faced sandwich with turkey, avocado and honey mustard. So good.
In other big news, I just hired someone to help me with my videos! Yay! Get excited for better angles, better editing and graphics 🙂
