What Are You Waiting For?

The other day I was sitting on the beach with my friend explaining how hard the dating scene is.  I had been on a couple dates and had a couple coming up.  Unfortunately, the one had cancelled our 2nd date the day before due to work schedule which is totally understandable. Since I'm an open book I have to…

6 Months and 10 Pounds Later…

It’s time to get back into the swing of things with eating healthy and being good to my body through activity. It has been a long cold winter that’s been a big setback especially since I am signed up for the Spring Lake 5 miler in 32 days. Eeek! No worries though because a goal without…

Spring Lake 5

It's Sunday morning and a few minutes past 5am.  I remember that Spring Lake 5 registration had just started so I jump on my computer to sign up.  How exciting would it be to have a low bib number?  Isn't that all runner's goal when registering or maybe it's just me! Registration was a breeze…

Spasiba 2014!

In honor of #tbt I took a look back on 2014 and laughed and smiled at all the things I have done.  I have met new friends, strengthened others and completed some goals!  Here are just some of my main squeezes... 2014 started out pretty amazing as I celebrated my 35th birthday with important friends and family. …

How Do I Begin Again?

I am so excited about this year's Biggest Loser because it features former athletes who had given up on their healthy regiments and fighting back to get in shape again.  I recently find myself in the same position.  I had started a weight loss journey and have admittedly gotten off track. I am not back where I…

  Summer is here and everyone is planning their vacations to get away from the everyday, myself included!  We work so hard in our jobs, keeping our families afloat and trying to do healthy things for ourselves that we deserve a break!  Eating healthy and exercising is tough work so I wanted to share some…

There’s No Yawning In Pep Talks!

  The weather at the Jersey Shore has finally been warming up which means two things:  the tourists will soon be invading and race season is here!  In a couple days I’ll be doing my first five mile run in the Spring Lake 5 and I’m not ready.  I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready!…

Lessons Learned: Imperfection and Social Media

From time-to-time I get tired of talking about healthy habits and dating is on the back burner, so what should I write about? After some thought I realized that I learn a lesson everyday. From my fitness failures and social media successes, I've learned more about who I am and the perception we give. Imperfect…

Summer Goals

  Last summer I decided to start running as a challenge to myself.  After a couple days, running became my therapy.  I would get up before sunrise, drive down to the beach, run a couple miles, take pics of the sun coming up over the ocean and think about how lucky I was to live here…
