Things I love so much that you should buy them…

With the holidays rolling in I figured I might share with you some of the newest additions to my life that I love and have now decided I can’t live without. The idea behind this post is that it may inspire you to buy these doodads for the people you love, but I won’t tell […]

My first Crossfit Class

I’m going to start this blog off by saying that what works for me may not necessarily work for other people, and vice versa.

Okay, so let’s get down to business. I’ve been curious about Crossfit for forever. Everyone I’ve talked to said it’s kind of like a fitness cult. If there would be any cult […]

Live and in Internet Color

I have a whole new appreciation for chewing.  Chewing. Chewing. Glorious chewing!

I’m sure you’re all tired of reading about my cleanse, but are you tired of watching about my cleanse?  Because I made a video!  This is all a part of my New Year’s Resolution to get back into Webshows.  Now, those of you that […]

VitaTop Giveaway!

I will admit that there was a time in life that VitaMuffins and I were involved.  I once got a care package of VitaTops sent to my office by a friend who was trying to console me after I’d learned my boyfriend was diddling another lady.

She knew I was going to want to eat away […]

Review: Skinny Water

A couple of weeks ago the nice folks at Skinny Water sent me a box of libation to try.

Normally I’m not big on food reviews of things I don’t buy myself, but my curiosity was peaked.  You see, I kind of like flavored waters. It’s a guilty pleasure for a girl who otherwise exists […]

A Relook at French Women Don't Get Fat

I bought French Women Don’t Get Fat in 2005 when it first came out and everyone was raving about how revolutionary it was and how it was the best diet book ever written.  I read it, I liked it, I put it on my shelf and went right on being 22 and eating ramen.
I reread it it this weekend so that I could summarize it for my mother, who wanted to read it but unfortunately it doesn’t come in large print and therefore I volunteered to be her own personal Kindle.  What struck me this time around about French Women Don’t Get Fat, besides the shameless promotion of Veuve Clicquot, is that it’s a really sensible look eating and the joy of eating.  I really do think this is one of the better “diet books” out there.
I’m not a Francophile, I know there are many out there, people that want to encompass the class and je ne sais quas that the French are known for.  I’ve been to France,  I think it’s beautiful, full of art and culture, and crepes but there’s not a single part of me that wishes to be anything more than the homegrown New York girl that I am.  That being said, I don’t think the tips in FWDGF are all that French, just a reconnect to a more real, simplistic way of eating. A style of eating that I think many of us have lost or never been exposed to because we live in a fast paced society where time is money and we never have enough of either.  It’s refreshing to know that there are people out there who take enough time out of each day to really enjoy eating, because let’s face it eating is just about the best thing ever.
If you haven’t read it here’s a simplistic look at what’s inside: […]

Exercise DVD Review: Crunch-Yoga Body Sculpt

Ladies and gentlemen we have a winner.  A new favorite yoga DVD for me, and perhaps for you!  I’ve mentioned many a time over the years that I am not the most yogafied person.  I understand the importance of it.   I know that it’s great for stretching and strengthening your body, but I’ve never been that into it. I’ve always done it more out of obligation to a well rounded routine than a deep and serious love of yoga.  That out of the way I LOVED THIS VIDEO and I will definitely make it my go to yoga video.  I had fun doing yoga, and I hate yoga. […]

Obsession Alert: Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Honey and Granola Frozen Yogurt

I can die now.

That is how much I love this frozen yogurt.  My life is totally complete now that Vanilla Honey and Granola frozen yogurt has come into it.  One of my favorite breakfasts/comfort foods is yogurt with honey and walnuts or granola (crunchy is what I’m saying here).  So, when I saw this flavor […]

Obsession Alert: Lemon flavored gum

I am not a chocolate lover.  I’m a chocolate liker, chocolate is okay and more than okay on a certain week of the month I call “well at least I’m not pregnant” week.  I am however a lover of all things chewy and sour.  Sour patch kids, gummy worms, swedish fish, starburst I could roll […]
