Meal Prep 102: What’s inside

Meal Prep 102: What’s inside

Hey guys! I decided to write this blog per my sister’s request. After reading my last post, she really liked it, but wanted to know more. You see, my sister and I are always swapping recipes and meals to try in the upcoming weeks. My sister and brother are some of the best cooks I have encountered, next to my mom, (even though they don’t realize it). If either of them suggests a recipe, you can bet I’m trying it the next week!

In my last blog, I mentioned that when starting to live a healthier lifestyle, it’s 80% your diet and 20% exercise. I want to state this again here because it’s so important for us all to really wrap our heads around this idea: Continue reading “Meal Prep 102: What’s inside”

Meal Prepping 101

Meal Prepping 101

Meal prepping is hard. Well that’s a lie, it’s not really hard, it’s just time-consuming. VERY time-consuming … Around this time of year a lot of people are putting their New Year’s resolutions to work, starting to eat healthier, and maybe attempting this whole meal prep idea. To those of you who are new to meal prepping: it’s preparing a good chunk of your foods ahead of time so that you have healthy snacks ready to grab and go when you’re on the run. Or if you’re like me, saving yourself from coming in the door at the end of the day, famished, and ready to eat everything in sight. Meal prepping helps me go for the healthy prepared salad or fruit, rather than the chips and salsa. Those small adjustments can make a big impact on your health journey!

Meal prepping helps me a lot, BUT I want to be honest about how I feel about it, because it’s a true LOVE-HATE relationship.    Continue reading “Meal Prepping 101”

What I Learned from Quitting

What I Learned from Quitting

This past weekend I decided to sign up for a Pilates certification program in NYC as I thought that having an extra certification would  be good to have for the studio*

[*My sister and I own and run a yoga/barre studio, because we are millennials and we love (and need) to have side hustles. An article in the NYPost backs up the theory: “One in two millennials has a “side hustle” in a bid to boost their cash or chase a long-held passion”.] Continue reading “What I Learned from Quitting”

My Summer Bucket List

My Summer Bucket List

Summer is my favorite out of the beautiful seasons here in New England. I mean, what is there not to love about SUMMER?  Beach days, the warm sun on your face, hot dogs, ice cream, vacations, tans, shorts, flip flops…  It’s the happiest time of the year, and for many, it’s also one of the busiest times. Since we live in New England, we only get about 3.5 months, if that, of beautiful warm weather. So we try to cram in as many outdoor activities as possible: ball games, BBQs, weekend getaways to the beach, vineyard visits, boat cruises, mini-golfing, or just taking a run or walk outside.

PART 5: Getting in the Right Mindset!

Positive womanIn order to start my mornings right and get in the proper mindset, I take advantage of my long drive to work and fill my mind with positivity. Most days I listen to some type of motivational or business-related podcast/audiobook, and then during the last 5 minutes I listen to a couple of upbeat songs that get me going for the day. I like to call them my “walk-out songs” 😉 Continue reading “PART 5: Getting in the Right Mindset!”

PART 4: How the F*** Can I Look Like Gisele?!

A recent poll found that 41% of Americans made a New Year’s Resolution for 2017. According to that same survey, eating healthier was the #1 Resolution, said 21% of the respondents. Understandably so, getting in “great shape” has been a fad for decades and because of that, a large portion of the population, myself included, has obsessed over it. Continue reading “PART 4: How the F*** Can I Look Like Gisele?!”

Broke, Confused & Terrified Blog Series

Scared womanWelcome to 2018 my friends! The year of opportunity and abundance! …

The beginning of a new year is the time that most of us reflect on the past year, look at what we have or haven’t done, and then set new goals for the year to come – for a short-lived time, that is. Continue reading “Broke, Confused & Terrified Blog Series”
