We're nearing the end of January, and I'm already reviewing my progress towards my health and fitness goals. While I feel like I've stayed relatively committed to a healthy diet, I have not been exercising as regularly as I would like. My preferred method of maintaining a consistent level of fitness is to simply run...around our neighborhood...on the treadmill. I ... Read More »

Every year I make a series of resolutions...mainly related to health, fitness, and weight loss. Unlike some resolutions, where something is given up, the choice to eat healthier and maintain a consistent level of activity is something that I constantly have to strive towards. It's almost too easy to get complacent...to allow an extra few days without exercise...to... Read More »

For weeks months YEARS I've been using the "baby weight" excuse as a free pass to eat, drink, and do as I please. I've always swayed towards the healthy side of the pendulum, but sweets are my weakness. Before children, I prioritized and enjoyed exercise, particularly the treadmill, because it was an easy way to keep my body active and my heart healthy. Unlike man... Read More »

Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it.

No pain no gain right? At least that's what my husband tells me after I've finished a fitness class at the gym, walked all over New York London Montreal the city we happen to be traveling in, or attempted to keep up with two young kids at Disneyland. I expect varying degrees of ... Read More »

Going to the gym requires forethought and planning, and very often, I'm heading there either before or after an event, activity or errand. To save time, I typically wear my workout clothing to and from the gym, so attire that is comfortable and stylish is a must.
Macy's, one of my favorite go-to department stores for clothing, shoes, accessories, and makeup, releas... Read More »

It was all so mysterious...the compelling invite, written to include just enough information to draw you in...the clues (aka the workout gear) and instructions (invitation) that were sent (as in mailed) just prior to the event. Even as I approached The Montalban in Los Angeles, I still didn't exactly know what I'd be doing for six whole hours. All I really knew wa... Read More »

I probably shouldn't admit that while I'm writing this post, I'm finishing the last few bites of an Artie Lange cupcake from Crumbs Bake Shop...the remnants of my birthday celebration. I'll have to work out at least double time this week to counter the butter, chocolate, and cream cheese that make this cupcake so decadent. And speaking of working out, it's the new y... Read More »

Every year around this time, I aspire to develop some type of regular exercise routine. Before I got married and had children, I enjoyed running and taking fitness classes at our local gym. At that time, it was easy to get to the gym without having to worry about child care ... Read More »

This giveaway is now closed. Congrats Ericka!
I'm less than ten pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight (as in before my 4 year old son was born) and while I'm so proud to have gotten this far, I've definitely hit a plateau. And, of course, my body does not resemble it's former 20-something self. I'm not always as consistent with my workout schedule and while I wor... Read More »

It's May...almost halfway through the year...perhaps it's time for me to think about where I'm at with my weight loss and fitness goals. A few months ago, I was just 10 pound... Read More »
