Everyday Is A New Day

This last year has been nothing short of a roller coaster. 2020 started out with a tremendous amount of hope for my then-boyfriend and I with our amazing engagement. After a few weeks, I seemed to have planned the perfect summer day with my family and friends to celebrate our union-to-be in our new city…

I’m Glad I’m Here

Every birthday I reflect on the previous year: what have I learned, what has changed, where I want to be, etc.  Turning 40 this year is no different except I've been thinking about the whole 40 years.  Where was I mentally and emotionally for the other big birthday.  To be honest, I'm lucky to have…

Don’t Lose Faith

I was secretly on a mission for the last 11 months and I am sad to report that I have failed.  My goal was to meet a hot and super rich guy to marry and travel with and never work again. I have put my goal aside (for now 😉 ) and found a new job!…

Choose Hope Not Fear

Every week, my very good friend drives up to North Jersey from Ocean County for her chemo treatments to fight breast cancer.  Last week, I had the honor of going with her.  Admittedly I was nervous because I'm queasy around needles but mostly because I didn't know what to expect of others. The hospital in…

Change of Scenery

I have a friend at work who I confide in about my work and life challenges.  Every few weeks she tells me that I need a change of scenery.  It seems like a simple suggestion but then my brain goes into overdrive... A change of scenery could mean two things: changing jobs or moving away. …

2015 Improvements

I don't know about you but I hate setting a New Year's Resolution!  I have always felt that we don't need the end of the year to reflect on the past and make changes in the future because it can be done everyday.  However, I will indulge you with my thoughts on how I want to…

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. …

Not Welcome In Philly Anymore

This past Saturday my friend Dawn and I participated in the Tap 'N Run in Philly.  It's a 4K fun run involving drinking beer.  Ok, let that sink in for a second.... Tap 'N Run's are held in every major city in America and is meant to be crazy and it certainly was!  The run…

One Year

It has been one year since I decided to make a change in my life.  This time last year I was unahppy with how I was running my own life.  I had bad eating habits, I hadn't worked out in years and didnt' even want to be social because I felt bad about myself.  These…

Gratitude

I feel as though people or experiences are brought into your life for a reason.  They teach us something about others and ourselves.  Sometimes learning about others makes us feel not so alone in the world. When I started Zone 360 at Ultimate Fit Zone I was shy, unsure of what I was getting into…
