These are my Ocean-safe Sunscreen Tips + info on the adidas Oceans Run in NYC.
Look at me! All decked out for summer fitness and spending oodles of time in the sun! The funny part about that last sentence is that I’m terrified of the sun even though I love how good it can feel on the skin. I leanred in my late 20’s and early 30’s that the sun can destroy your skin, and how easily one can contract skin cancer. So I don’t play that game anymore of going out in the sun without any sunscreen. Nope! The big news, when it comes to sunscreens, is that the FDA is reevaluating the safety of every single chemical sunscreen agent until November of 2019.
Already, many sunscreen brands and products using chemical ingredients have started to change their labels or discontinue certain lines. While many changes are still happening and we won’t get the FDA’s final results until November, what we do know is that MINERAL SUNSCREENS have been found to be the safest for both human...
Here's a different approach to your 2019 New Year's resolutions... Let me begin by saying I’ve always been a runner. I blog about it a lot. But this blog post is about something different, and I’m just going to use running as an example.
Sometimes in life we say we’re going to do something and we begin going through the motions of completing the act but never quite get to the finish. I’m not blaming you here (even though I know you're guilty of it), I blame myself. It frustrates me that I set goals and flake out on myself. So in 2017, after running enough races to qualify for the 2018 New York Marathon, I decided that I wasn’t going to flake. I registered for the marathon. It was a done deal.
Did I want to run a marathon? Not particuar.ly I’ve run so many already. Also, I know what it does to your body, feet and most of all, your social schedule. When you have to wake up for a Saturday morning race that begins lining up at 7.15am, you’re SOL for grabbing...
The craziest thing happened! I was invited to Scottsdale Arizona for a fitness festival called Ultra Fit Fest put on by Michelob Ultra. I've never partnered or worked with a beer brand before so I was a bit hesitant at first to accept. But I'm so glad I did because it was honestly one of the most fun media trips I've ever been on.
Michelob Ultra invited me on this trip, all expenses paid, and all they asked of me was to share my favorite parts of the festival with all my followers on social media. If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw me working out like crazy in back-to-back fitness classes. And then, chilling by the pool in the hot Arizona sun by the afternoon. It was literally over 100 degrees every day! If you didn't catch all of that on Insta, well, now you know exactly what this trip entailed...
Actually, it was a lot more entertaining than how I just described it. But to me, the non-stop fitness offerings and pool were the highlights, and I was a happy...

My running story is complex mostly because I started running because I hated it so much. It seemed like such an easy exercise for most people and I never understood why it was so difficult for me. I was determined to become a runner and by the time I was out of college, I had become one.
I ran and ran and ran until one day I decided I was fit enough to run a marathon. I consulted my uncle who was the only other runner in my family. He gave me lots of advice and we began to train together here and there. We both lived in New York City so we’d jog down the West Side Highway Hudson River Run Path. It wasn’t nearly what it is today, but it was still a beautiful pathway and I’ll never forget those training runs.
I get the worst periods. We all do. It can be hell on earth some months, right? Especially when it hurts to move. But it’s actually common knowledge in the women's health world that if you maintain physical activity while you’re menstruating that you can actually alleviate cramps, bloating, aches and pains.
It all comes down to circulation, breathing fresh oxygenated air, drinking lots of water and getting your endorphins going. I like to equate it to working out while you’re going through heartbreak. At the beginning, you’re like “how could this possibly make my situation any better?” But once those beads of sweat start forming and you’re releasing toxins and somewhat forgetting about HIM (or her), exercise feels like the best idea you ever came up with!
Scorned lovers and periods need to be dealt with in the same way, because ultimately the pain will pass. You just have to get in motion to speed up the process! Pushing through your period is possible when...
