Whether or not any of you care or are reading about my juice cleanse remains to be seen so if you aren't into reading about it, you can just skip along from this post because I got wordy in this one!

Detox & Juice Cleanse w/Evolution Fresh Review {DAY 1}

Screen Shot 2014-08-28 at 2.55.59 PM

Today is day two of my "reset."  I'm very lightly doing a juice cleanse detox using Evolution Fresh juices I picked up at Whole Foods yesterday.  I am not following any specific plan other than to eat way healthier, lightly and to try and reboot myself from some of my bad eating habits that I've picked up over the last couple of months. Here's … [Read more...]

Weight Gain, Un-Wellness and My Road to a Detox & Possible Cleanse

Screen Shot 2014-08-27 at 9.07.53 PM

Yesterday I freaked out when I stepped on the scale.  That was my moment.  The moment I cracked and I realized I had to shape up and that something with my diet and routine has to change. I can pinpoint exactly when my bad eating habits started and say with confidence that it was Easter, which you guys may remember was late this year.  It was at … [Read more...]

Why Is a College Education So Expensive?

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 6.21.49 PM

I'm going a little off topic today after I was tagged yesterday on Facebook in this post, The Top 10 Most Expensive Private Colleges in America. It was actually posted on July 4th but it was just yesterday that a fellow grad discovered it and shared it with a bunch of us.  The link takes you to #8, my alma mater, Trinity College. Ugh. Not exactly … [Read more...]

Random Post. On Trying to Beat my Best 5k Time. #Running #Fitness

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 11.03.14 AM

So I recently joined a local running group. I've been aware of their group on Facebook for the better part of the year because I have a bunch of friends who are members and their posts would always pop up on my feed and I always thought they seemed like an awesome group.  I don't really know what took me so long to join but after a friend in the … [Read more...]

Turning 40.

3d40f2816260f0964a3c2bf3fd12f333

Today's my day, people.  THE DAY. Age doesn't bother me all that much normally.  I know a lot of people have a hard time turning 30 and I remember not caring at all.  But for whatever reason, 40 is hitting me.  Hard. I think it's because I really remember my parents turning 40 and I remember thinking, sh*t, that's old.   It's silly, I … [Read more...]

IMG_9730

My kids got out of school for the summer on June 13th but I have a feeling that today is going to feel like the real first day of summer.  Why?  For third year in a row, we took off in the afternoon of the 13th for our annual road trip.  We got back yesterday afternoon.  12 days, 1,500 miles and 6 states.  Over the next couple of days I'll be doing … [Read more...]

Friends in my life ask me all the time about acupuncture.  They know I go regularly and have for years.  I find myself talking about it often - it's amazing how many people are curious about it.   Today, I am sharing my own personal journey with acupuncture.  This story spans from over 7 years of going to acupuncture for both infertility, anxiety … [Read more...]

Welcome back, Jen!

You guys may remember Jen from After the Alter - she posted here on Mommies with Style a couple of years ago. I actually met her at BlogHer in New York when she was pregnant with her first and she's now pregnant with #2! I'm so excited for her - trying for number 2 definitely wasn't easy and I followed her along on her blog and literally shouted … [Read more...]

When I Remembered That Running is FUN #running #fitness

Screen Shot 2014-05-19 at 2.47.07 PM

A recent pitch informed me that the Color Me Rad Race is coming to Philadelphia. Woo! There are certainly other color runs but the only other one I know going on this summer is on a weekend we're out of town. I have never had a chance to do one before and always wanted to, but they definitely seem like something you need to do with family and/or … [Read more...]
