Learn How to Meditate Using the Calm App

0

I’ve taken a bit of a social media and blogging break the past several weeks. Mainly because we have gone on a few family vacations where I vowed be “present” with my family and not be “online”. Which is super-fair: the last trip was not sponsored so I did not have to constantly be on social media while we were skiing, enjoying a lunch, or swimming in the pool. It was a nice digital break, I have to say. I find that being “on” in the digital sense, whether it be blogging, posting on social media, or working with one of my clients can be…

0

A lot of you know that I’ve been a HUGE barre3 fan for the past year. I’ve been an online barre3.com member since last October and have faithfully done their online workouts in the comfort of my own home. But now…I am so excited to say, barre3 has opened up its newest flagship: barre3 West Village in my town, New York City! I was invited to barre3 West Village’s media week right before launch and met (I can’t believe I’m saying this) Sadie Lincoln (That’s me and barre3 founder, Sadie Lincoln, above!), the founder and owner of barre3. She flew in…

Review of Barre3 Online Workouts

2

I was not compensated in any way for this post. I really am a big fan of Barre3! All opinions expressed are mine. I’ve tried so hard to get back into shape and I just cannot get myself to the gym (which is downstairs in our apartment building), or go out running. I’m not a morning person, so it takes a lot for me to wake up, get dressed and go somewhere to exercise. So, I’ve felt a little down on myself since this was the year that I was supposed to get back into shape. My little area in…

How to Wear a Bike Helmet Correctly

3

We live in New York City, so our main mode of transportation is the New York City subway. Other times, we love to use our bikes and scooters when we go to the playground, school or our favorite restaurant. It is a major rule in our family that no matter what kind of wheels we are on, we must use our bike helmets. No exceptions. Wearing our bike helmets…but after learning how to wear a bike helmet correctly, these pictures clearly show that our helmets are not fitted properly. Michael’s wearing his helmet correctly, but S is not. Don’t worry,…

4

It’s the summer of transformation in the Triple Threat Mommy household: we are  working on making some improvements in our apartment and I’m making some improvements on my body. Changes, but good changes. It’s been several weeks since I updated everyone on my quest for getting my back in shape which I started on May 31st.  These are the three ways I’m getting my pre-baby body back: 1. I joined a beginner’s Mommy running group through Urban Athletics NYC. When I signed up to go to BlogHer 2012 back in February, I saw a link for the BlogHer 5K. Without…

Jenny Craig Brand Ambassador Valerie Bertinelli kicked off the American Heart Association’s Wall Street Run & Heart Walk on behalf of “Team Jenny,” in New York City last week on May 31st. I am proud to have been a part of “Team Jenny” as I made a pact with myself that June 1st was going to be the start of a healthier, more active me — and what a great way to kick it off with the Run & Heart Walk. The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event that brings communities together to raise money and celebrate progress…

Trying to Get Healthy and Fit

4

The last time my body was in pre-baby shape, it was four year’s after O’s birth. I gained 52 lbs in my first pregnancy and I had a c-section which just wrecked my stomach muscles. After some consistent time working out,  I got my pre-baby body back. It took four years, but I did it. It had only been a month or so and then, I got pregnant with our second girl. She turned out to be a HUGE baby – she was 9lbs 5oz when born! Needless to say, I had a second c-section and my stomach muscles were further…
