It’s that time of year again! Many people in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas begin making the trek down the shore Friday afternoon, coming home late Sunday evening or before work Monday morning. Working out and eating healthy for the past nine months in preparation for bathing suit season is now paying off! But unlike Will Smith’s popular song,…
It can be hard to find the time and the inspiration to work out. No matter your dedication to your fitness goals, some days getting up early for the gym or pushing through one more set of reps can seem impossible. And when you’re just getting started, something as simple as being unsure if you’re doing the perfect push-up can distract you from your routine….
Without a doubt, biking is one of my great joys. The freedom, the convenience, the exhilaration of the ride. But I‘d be naïve to think that cycling can’t get can downright scary sometimes. If you bike, you know this. Riding anywhere presents hazards, and a powerful truth every cyclist has to realize it that in a matchup of bike versus car,…
Healthy Takeout
I don’t always have the time to prepare a healthy meal, let alone head to the grocery store to stock up for one. Luckily, just as our refrigerator was completely depleted of fresh food options, help arrived in the form of a delivery from Healthy Bites.

What is a Healthy Bite?

Healthy Bites is a meal delivery service that’s the brainchild of registered dietitian and personal chef Katie Cavuto Boyle….

They say it takes 21 days to form a lasting habit, and I know it’s true. Whether it is visiting the gym regularly or bringing healthy salads for lunch, it definitely takes about three weeks for a new habit to click with me. What about breaking a habit? Do you need to skip going to the gym for three whole weeks before it stops becoming a part of your day?…
Life in and out of the office has been a little hectic for me, with stress levels at an all-time high. So, I decided to schedule a massage at the Lux Spa at the Omni Hotel.

Body perception vs. body reality

I arrived at the spa a few minutes early and I’ll admit that I was nervous….
While training for this year’s Blue Cross Broad Street Run, I would remind myself that soon enough these long runs would give way to Zumba, kickboxing, and other cardio classes at the gym. It was my little light at the end of a long training tunnel. But now that another Blue Cross Broad Street Run is in the books,…
Beach Yoga
I needed to get back on the 80 side of my 80/20 rule of healthy living after indulging my 20% at a couple Phillies games in the past week, so I couldn’t say no when the opportunity to try Dhyana Yoga in Center City presented itself. The chance to meditate while getting in a thorough workout came at a perfect time….

Mantra Mondays

Monday, 18 June 2012 by
Oh, Monday. The day the working class shrugs off the weekend and trudges to work. Monday mornings are for crawling back under the covers for a few extra minutes of sleep. However, I decided today would be different. Instead of hiding my face from my dog’s cool, wet nose on my pillow at 5:30am, I got up….
