Bringing Breakfast Back

I was never big on breakfast. I started being bused to school in fifth grade, which meant early wake ups and not a lot of time to. Enjoy a hot breakfast. Throughout middle school and high school I relied on breakfast bars and fruit….by the time I was in college breakfast was something I had [&[...]

I’m In Need of a Detox

This isn’t the first time I’ve contemplated a detox, but lately I’ve just really been feeling like I need it. I’m cranky, sluggish and feeling a little bloated…like all the time. Maybe it is the stress. Maybe it is all the travel. Whatever it is I need a swift kick in t[...]

Exercise As A Threat?

Over the last few years we have acclimated to seeing calories next to our favorite food items. At first it seemed to deter some people, but eventually you just shrugged it off and ate it because you wanted that personal-size Uno pizza that is like a  1,400 calories.

An Evening With Jillian

When I think about spending an evening with Jillian Michaels, I immediately think buckets of sweat and a fierce attitude in your face. So I was skeptical when I heard about her “Maximize Your Life” tour. I know she offers motivation in the form of one-on-one talks on Biggest Loser, but t[...]

Sidelined and Other Ramblings

I am the perfect example of how not to take care of yourself. There are studies out there that show that stress depletes your immune system and once your stress dissipates your immune system is flooded and then you get sick. Well that happened to me last week. I was go, go, going and then I [&helli[...]

Progress(ish?)

I’ve been diligently tracking my calorie intake and burn on myfitnesspal. I’m doing it without the heart rate monitor that I am currently lusting after, so it is possible that it isn’t accurate. Anyway, a month of serious workouts with Leslie Ann, calorie tracking and upping my car[...]

A Rude Awakening

I knew deep down that my body wasn’t very happy with me. When I looked in the mirror my hips and thighs just seemed wider. I was exercising, but not as intensely as I had in the past. I mean I hadn’t been to a spin class in probably five months, and last Sunday’s five mile run [&[...]

Do Flabby Neighbors Motivate You?

When you head into the gym do you find yourself drawn to machines (or spots in class) next to women who are less fit than you? According to a new study, this could be a normal activity. Researchers “planted” fit and unfit looking women around a college gym. Then they timed how long it t[...]
