    The Importance of Rest Days: Finding Balance for a Healthy Lifestyle

    The Importance of Rest Days: Finding Balance for a Healthy Lifestyle In today's fast-paced world, where productivity is celebrated and multitasking is the norm, it's easy to overlook the importance of rest and recovery. Whether you're a fitness enthusiast or someone who simply enjoys staying active, incorporating rest days into your routine is crucial for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Contrary to popular belief, spending every day in the gym or engaging in high-intensity workouts is not the key to optimal fitness. Instead, it's about finding balance and understanding the significance of low-impact activities on your days off. Rest days do not equal laziness; rather, they are ....

    Check in For Charity - Pan Mass Challenge

    As many of you know my mom passed away last November from a brief and courageous battle with cancer. In August my sister Alicia will be riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC) in honor of my mother and others who have been affected by cancer. She will bike 166 miles through Cape Cod. The PMC’s mission is to raise funds for cancer research and treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. 100% of every rider-raised dollar goes directly to Dana-Farber. My sister Alicia is riding for our mom, Margaret Guarino. The world lost the most beautiful soul on November 30, 2022. Having been diagnosed only three months prior, she fought a valiant battle against stage 4 ....

  • Why it’s Important to Keep a Fitness Journal

    Why it’s Important to Keep a Fitness Journal Keeping a journal of your workouts is one of the best ways to ensure you're making progress towards your fitness goals. A workout journal can be a simple notebook or a fancy app, but regardless of the medium, it serves the same purpose: to track your progress, provide motivation, and help you reach your goals. Tracking my workouts in a journal has been a game changer for me, and it can be for you too. For years, I would go to the gym and do the same workouts, using the same weights, without ever really making any progress. It wasn't until I started tracking my workouts that I started seeing real results. By writing down my ....

  • Super Healthy Super Bowl!

    Super Healthy Super Bowl!

    Super Healthy Super Bowl!! If you’re anything like me, you look forward to the Super Bowl for one main reason: SNACKS. When I think of Super Bowl Sunday, I immediately think of nachos, chips with a multitude of different dips, and rice krispie treats shaped like footballs (maybe that’s just my family’s tradition?) These foods are certainly a delicious treat, but it is extremely easy to go overboard in a social situation like this. The downside is too many snacks like these can lead to feeling tired or sluggish- and you don’t want to be asleep by the halftime show! This Super Bowl, make one of these healthier recipes and you’ll be cheering all night ....

  • How to Power Up Your Breakfast With Protein

    How to Power Up Your Breakfast With Protein

    I’m sure we have all heard the cliche “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. However, between the limited time to prepare and eat something nutritious, jam-packed morning routines of getting kids off to school, and simply not being hungry in the morning, I am not surprised to learn many people struggle with this meal. Breakfast IS important- by eating food in the morning, we are breaking the fasted state in our body and introducing sugar back into our blood. This starts to give us the energy that we need to efficiently perform all the tasks in the upcoming day (and no, we shouldn’t do it on coffee alone!). The other issue with breakfast is it can ....

  • Restaurant Hacks

    Restaurant Hacks

    Restaurant Hacks “What do I do when I don’t have control over my food choices?” That is the #1 question asked when referring to dining out. The problem is that, in many cases, we get to the restaurant feeling ravenous because we waited too long to eat. In some situations, people “save up” their calories to be able to dine out. Take a moment to think about a time when you went out to eat and were hungry… Did you find yourself NEEDING an appetizer, then a salad, and your entree? Maybe you even ordered a glass of alcohol or possibly a dessert. The FDA recommends on average that we consume about 2,000 calories a day (we know this actually ....
