My Workout Today

Baby, it’s cold outside. Too cold for this chicken to go for a run outside, so I made sure I got my run done at the gym this morning, before doing my strength training. In my defense, I have run outside in winter in Vermont, and it’s not actually as bad as you imagine when […]

Hockey is Back! Why am I excited?

My husband is a hockey fanatic. For example, I am very, very happy there is no NY Rangers game scheduled for my birthday this year, because that may have caused a slight marital rift. I never used to be into it at all, but in 2011 I started watching games with him, even going to […]

Ten Things You Don’t Know About Your Personal Trainer

1. If you complain about it being early, and I’ve already trained someone, I will make your workout a little harder. 2. I don’t work out every day. I work out 4 or 5 days per week, because that’s what I can do within my lifestyle. On the days I am not working out, though, […]

Awesome Client Gift!

One of my clients spends winter in California. I came home from the playground on this cold, grey afternoon to find this wonderful box of sunshine waiting for me. Roman thought it was a great surprise, as well. Pretty sure these are from a tree in her yard, too!

Caffeine Hit

A friend of mine just introduced me to almond milk lattes – hello delicious! Almond milk has a naturally sweet taste, so for someone who drinks coffee with no sugar, it’s almost like drinking hot chocolate, without the massive calories. Almond milk has 40 calories per 8oz, versus whole milk at 146 calories per 8oz. […]

I survived taking a baby on a trip to Australia (but got sick and couldn’t work out)

I hope everyone had a great holiday! I haven’t posted for a while because we went to Australia for Roman’s first Christmas. I was so nervous about taking a baby on such a looooong flight, but was really looking forward to handing him over to grandparents so I could go work out, or run every day, […]

My Workout Today

Stretching:This is what I felt like doing beforeI started my workout. Instead, it wasmy reward! I did not feel like working out today. At all. But I had a pretty easy work morning – two early clients back-to-back, then a loooong break before my last session, a 2 hour break, in fact. So I guilted […]

My New Favorite Running Buddy

Sleepy running buddy I went for a great run today in the park. Usually I run solo, leaving hubby to look after the bub, but it was so nice out today, it was almost nap-time, and I didn’t get my normal weights session in today, so out we went. Running with a stroller is nowhere […]

Behind the Scenes of my Mama and Baby workout video!
