On My Healthy Lifestyle Radar

Every January I make a promise with myself to stay out of the gym, and workout at home or by running outside (polar vortex obviously has that on the sideline). I just can’t handle the crowds, fighting for machines, my favorite spin bike or these people. So I pull out my trusty DVDs, or go [&he[...]

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[...]

Can’t Resist: Spring Runs, Chobani and More

I can’t resist running in this weather. I am literally exhausted with tight quads and an aching back and the mid-60 weather and clear blue skies call to me. I am still getting used to running in my Kinvara 4 from Saucony and because the weather was super perfect I ran a bit longer in […[...]

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. (Not me, because I just can̵[...]

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[...]

Having One of Those Weeks

I’m having one of those weeks. You know the kind where no matter how hard you push yourself (in work and in life) you don’t feel like you are crossing off anything on your to-do list?   I knew the weeks leading up to April were going to be rough. I have a client expecting […][...]

It’s Nutrition Month!

When I was working on a campaign for a diet company, we tagged March as the month diets die.  February is just disgusting when it comes to weather and  keeping track of what you are putting in your body has just become tedious. So it seems perfect that March is National Nutrition Month. You are [&[...]

Just Drink Your Tea (or Coffee)

There was a six month period back in college where I grabbed a Red Bull every morning on my way out the door. Somehow I had convinced myself that this was the right direction to take since I hated the taste of coffee. Then there was this super charged drink sold at Duane Reade that […][...]

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 [&[...]
