My personal journey toward better health, and enjoying the benefits of full fitness.
To commemorate my 30th birthday, I celebrate all the things I've learned in my ripe old age of... thirty.
What have I learned while recovering from my emotional eating habit?
On talking yourself out of wanting to losing weight, and why this mentality never helps.
Panties, scumbags, and yoga. Oh, and fantastic looking tacos.
A bunch of words that say, in short, that I'm engaged now!
But how do you convince yourself that you don't want that doughnut more than you want to achieve your goals?
The silly ramblings of a mom... who needs to let the sun shine in.
I make no bones about the fact that I love our First Lady. Did I adore Laura Bush? Yes, but something about Michelle Obama just rocks to me. Maybe it's just her arms. I'm not playing either. She looks like she puts effort - actual effort - into those bad boys! I know that the [...]
A few issues that rarely are addressed when it comes to extreme natural weight loss.
Want a look inside my fridge? Well, Well & Good NYC did just that!
The US Army's YouTube account posted video from my experience with them in DC, everything from the workout at the expo to the actual race, and even bringing it on back home to Brooklyn's Prospect Park to talk about it all.

A look at Alana from Dr. Phil's "Real Housewives of Dr. Phil" and a common problem with weight loss.

I like writing about the things I've learned and struggled with along my way. The things that I've used this site to reinforce for myself, the things I've used this site [...]
I get so annoyed by people who say things like, "Oh, I don't believe in calorie counting." or "Calorie counting is silly." I always ask them, "Well, why?" It's almost always some dumb answer like, "Well, I don't want to know how many calories my favorite foods are." or "I'm not going to [...]
My heartfelt recap of my experience with the Army Ten Miler, at the Pentagon.
The other night, on twitter, I was asked about different pieces of my story. I guess that means... more about my struggle? How I came to a point where I was comfortable with my efforts and my ability to continue on to where I want to be? Okay.. here goes. Once upon a time, I [...]
"As a part of my ability to work with the US Army, I was granted with the opportunity to visit the Pentagon..."
