For as long as I can remember, I have been “the fat one.” The fat friend, the fat sister, the fat daughter, the fat ____ (insert role/title here). Three or four times in my life, I have managed to lose an amount of weight equal to that of a kindergartner, but still only just enough to […]
Prior to having children, if you couldn’t find me, I was probably running. I wasn’t winning races, but frequently taking home age-group awards fed the part of me that loves a gold star. My circle of friends kept me on the roads. Some people meet their friends for dinner; I meet my friends for runs. […]
It was the most intimidating audience I’d ever faced in my life. Their eyes glared at me, daring me to challenge their strongly held beliefs in mere seconds, or else they would band together and revolt for the next two weeks. I hoped they didn’t catch me shaking in my sneakers. Thus began my stint […]
Anyone who has sat in Boston traffic for any length of time has probably pondered alternate transport. But transporting the entire family on bike? Is it even possible? Of course! Why not cycle?! Drop-off could be stress free as you take the back streets and avoid the morning rush. It’s just you and your kids cruising […]
It’s that time! Summer time! We’ve got a great list to keep you busy every day and night! What’s on your “must do” list for this Boston summer?

I especially worried about pressure from society and media related to body image, appearance, and self-acceptance. […]
This post is sponsored by Coolidge Corner Yoga, a great place for toddler AND adult yoga! I started practicing yoga a few months before I got pregnant, I continued through my pregnancy with prenatal yoga, and I even took my twins to mommy and me yoga — all at Coolidge Corner Yoga. I have found […]
Before I got pregnant I was regularly doing yoga, so it felt like a natural step to continue my yoga practice in pregnancy. Prenatal yoga has many benefits for both mama and baby. It is an opportunity for exercise and relaxation. It can help you connect to your body and your baby. You can also find […]
The question that makes me cringe every year — “So what’s your New Year’s resolution?” — annoys me so much more now that I have a kid. I’m a mother of a toddler, so some days, maybe most days, I’m just trying to keep my kid fed and un-injured while not completely neglecting my own basic needs. […]
Getting back to our pre-baby weight is seen as some sort of accomplishment by society, the fitness industry, and the media. I’ve come to realize how backward this is, but I had to first become a mother to really get the extent of its ridiculousness. My priorities today are different than they were in my […]
I distinctly remember the day the tipping point came. We were visiting my in-laws over the summer. We had a week of delicious snacks and dinners, along with lots (and lots) of adult beverages poolside. I was wearing a new maxi dress and ran out to the grocery store with my 3-year-old to pick up […]
Hate to break it to ya, but there is no such thing as a stress-free life. We all have work pressures, financial worries, parenting struggles, relationship issues, health problems… the list goes on and on. It’s on us to manage our stress in a way that works for our unique preferences, interests, and personalities. And […]
