I have embarked on J+A’s 14-Day Whole Detox. What you can expect along the way are any recipes I’ve crafted, tips I’ve learned or major shifts I’ve seen in my body or attitude (even negative ones). The basics of the detox: Eat organic, whole foods that are free of any major allergens like gluten, dairy and soy. Yesterday I went food shopping — a big Whole Foods haul with a hefty price… Read More

Long time no-blog. There have been a lot of amazing things going on in my life the past few months. After getting back from my trip to Japan, I feel as though everything has been on fast-forward. I also attribute my blogging hiatus to my valiant effort to live in the NOW and make more time for friends, family and fun activities (more on that in a motivational post coming soon). One… Read More

It’s no secret, Eliza and I love The Handle Bar. Back in July (almost a year ago) we took a class together at the South Boston location after its June 2013 grand opening and Eliza took the lead and wrote a review of our experience. When the Fenway location opened last month — close to my neck of the woods — I was ecstatic! However, I’m a little embarrassed to admit that… Read More

Last weekend was a big humble sundae. The cherry on top of it all being Sunday’s Yoga Reaches Out yogathon at the Gillette Stadium Field House. The turf field was packed with 1,000+ yogis, creating a beautifully energetic atmosphere. I set out to raise the minimum fundraising amount of $250.00, never imagining I’d exceed that modest goal by $1,000. This was all made possible by my generous friends, co-workers and lovely family. All proceeds… Read More

Looking for a simple alternative to your normal breakfast? I’m a sucker for falling into a routine, even when it comes to my eating habits (which isn’t a BAD thing). Breakfast is almost always a bowl of hot oats or overnight oats when I’m on the run. I have found that oatmeal with a fruit (sugar) and protein component fuels me perfectly in the mornings, so I very rarely deviate. If I’m… Read More

Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahama, Key Largo, Montego… Kyoto. If you couldn’t tell by my blogging hiatus, life has been a little busy. Tomorrow I’m jet-setting to Japan for a couple weeks of wanderlust. We’ll be spending some quality time in Kyoto with Ryo’s grandfather and several days in Tokyo — making frequent day trips to nearby destinations. Here are a couple of pictures from Ryo’s last trip: I’ve been itching to get… Read More

Here is a dance video for your home fitness arsenal. It’s a short song, perfect for cooling it down after a tough routine. Please note: 1. I live in a tiny apartment — Recently rearranged so that we have a little more room for activities. 2. The floor is super squeaky, so I’m trying to be as quiet as possible. I definitely don’t want my downstairs neighbors banging their brooms on the… Read More
