Snow, Cold & Fitness Motivation

I feel like every few days we are preparing for another snow castrophy here in DC. It won’t be such a let down this weekend as for a few reasons (1) one of my biffles is headed this way for the weekend [hopefully she can make it]; (2) Season 2 of House of Cards gets […][...]

Bringing the Sweat Without the Stink

If you are like me, you have a love/hate relationship with yoga. My brain tells me that I shouldn’t be sweating just from my prep stretching before class even starts, but then at the end of class–I have better flexibility, higher energy levels and I sleep like a baby. All great benefits.[...]

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[...]

Planning a Fit Vacation

Beginning Tuesday we are taking our first extended vacation in two years, a trip to London and Amsterdam that we have been planning since January. Yes, I did put in my PTO in January and saved most my days off for these next two weeks. In hindsight maybe not the best idea because I am insanely bur[...]

Continuing my yoga kick

I just finished up my first 36 days of the Ultimate Yogi program. To recap, I am back in 2s for skirts, down 4lbs and feeling amazing since I have been sleeping better. I hadn’t really thought about it, but because of the commitment to yoga I was getting up at the same time every […][...]

How Yoga Transforms Your Body

Since Adam Levine was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ last week, there have been countless articles detailing how yoga gave him that body, how it improved his sex life, and helped him remain more focused.  We’ve heard Gisele say that yoga was what got her figure back aft[...]

The Ultimate Yogi: First Impressions

A wise person wrote on my birthday card recently “the “9s” are harder than the “0s.” It is as if I wear my anxiety ridden mind on my sleeve, because turning 29 has been stressful. It is entirely my fault too. I mean what was I thinking at 22 setting career and life goal[...]

Workouts That Are Leaving Me Gasping

I am currently in what I will call a “trainer transition period.” Essentially, I’ve used up all of my training sessions and I am not entirely sure I want to sign up again. The last few months have been so busy, that making time to get to the gym is hard enough without having to [&h[...]

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[...]

I Need This App More Than Anything

By now we all know that I am traveling at least two weeks out of every month. Sometimes it is a quick overnight trip, sometimes it is for three days at a time. Bottom line: I travel and need to fit in my workouts. So I bring DVDs and get fit kits from my hotel […][...]
