Happy New Year (yes, I know it’s February)

Happy 2013, everyone! I realize this post is a little past due, however, I needed some time to get my thoughts together…and a Puerto Rican vacation. For me, this year is going to signify focus – it’s a toughy, but I’ve got this. (For those of you who know me, my mind is all over [...]

Back in time: Review of 2011

I realized that I never posted my review of 2011 to my blog, so here it is…2013 to come shortly! I can’t believe it’s already 2012; 2011 has been the fastest year of my life. Maybe that’s because I’m 30 now? I remember when I was a child and time would go by so slowly [...]

Food for Thought: The Breakfast Experiment

For one of my homework assignments in IIN (more details about my enrollment in The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in my bio), I was asked to evaluate what I eat for breakfast and see how my energy is affected. Now, remember, we are all different, so what works for me, may be the exact opposite [...]

In the past, I’ve used them to begin my morning when doing a juice cleanse or detox, but more recently I’ve been incorporating warm lemon water into my everyday routine! From stomach problems to weight loss, these little [...]

I’m a Personal Trainer at Equinox!

My fitness goals are all coming together! Professionally, that is. I moved to NYC in January (yes, I seriously have failed at keeping up this blog) and six days later, I got a job at Equinox (The old Printing House on Leroy and Hudson) as a Personal Trainer. Yay! The only company I wanted to [...]

Resolutions for Life!

It’s that time of year again when you’re supposed to make New Year’s resolutions and set goals that will make your life better for next year. My problem with this concept is that each day presents a possibility to make tomorrow better, so we do we always wait until January 1st to make these life [...]

Slap Your Negative Thoughts with an Om

Yoga is my way to take a break from life’s stressors. For one hour, I turn off my brain and choose an affirmation for my practice—whether it’s eating healthy for the day, working out consistently or having a positive attitude toward the people around me—whatever it is, I get to make it happen. If I’m [...]

Inspirational Musings: Becoming a Personal Trainer

Inspiration comes in many forms: what is inspiring to one person (their kids or significant other) can be completely different from someone else (their career or even their pet), and so on. A while ago, I was complaining to my girlfriend about what I want to do long term and she said, “Let’s start with [...]
