WIAW: Snack Bar Edition

The Landsman-Household is a true believer of bars as snacks. Sometimes they even accompany a yogurt breakfast, mostly though they serve as mid-morning or afternoon snacks, or the emergency food source when we don’t have immediate access to food. See we get a little hangry over here and we try [...]

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[...]

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.

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 [&[...]

Reintroducing Meat

As many of you know, I stopped eating meat when I was 16. It wasn’t because I was trying a new fad but simply because it made me feel sick–sharp stabbing pains to be exact. I lived off fish, tofu, legumes and anything Morning Star, LiteLife and the rest could throw at me. When I [&hellip[...]

Exhaustion Set In

A few weeks ago, I wrote about seeing my exhaustion warning signs. I don’t think I realized how exhausted I was until the GW Parkway 10 miler.  My body just didn’t feel right. It wasn’t from lack of training, but more from lack of resting. I was in essence “spent.” A [...]

Traveling Sets Me Back

When I go to NYC for work, I usually chalk that week up to a wash on my healthy routines. I don’t sleep that well in the hotel room, I tend to miss exercising, and I eat pretty much every meal out. After almost 10 months of making the bi-monthly commute I’ve been trying to […][...]
