Here are some facts to ponder and help you evaluate your lifetime relationship. Continue reading “Does Your Relationship Have What It Takes To Last A Lifetime?”

Happy Halloween!  Today is a day that kids love and many adults fear.  For most adults, Halloween is the “Gateway to the Holiday Eating Season”.  There’s still a good month to go before Thanksgiving, but depending on the candy haul that comes home tonight, there could be lots of tempting items in the home.  After you’ve taught mindfulness to your children and the Switch Witch has come and gone, what happens to all that leftover Halloween candy?  My #1 suggestion is DON’T take it to work.

This post is sponsored on behalf of Nutrisystem, all opinions are my own.

Recently I had the opportunity to provide an in-depth review of Nutrisystem. When it comes to structured meal plans, this one definitely checks that box. I often hear from my clients how they would love the cooking, thinking, and work to be done for them. For those looking for super-structure with minimal effort, this could be one to consider, in conjunction to working with a dietitian to make sure all nutrient needs are being met. Plus, dietitians make great accountability buddies to keep you on track! Continue reading “A Dietitian Review of Nutrisystem: A System to Do Together?”

Here in NJ, the Day After Labor Day means one thing: my social media feeds will be flooded with pics of my friends’ kids sporting their new backpacks and First Day of School outfits while waiting for the bus.  And hopefully healthy packed lunch boxes.  But kids aren’t the only ones who should be taking a lunch from home. Let this new month prompt a new habit for you and your Significant Other: start taking lunch to work. Continue reading “Back 2 Work Lunch Ideas”

How To: Staycation

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

One of the cool things about becoming a couple is forming your own traditions. When Mr. E and I started dating, we had Sunday date night of dinner and ice cream at our favorite local shops. There were Tuesday night Beat the Clocks (which is another story for another time). And a few years ago we started Staycation.  Continue reading “How To: Staycation”

Did you know September is second to January when it comes to focusing on goals? With the end of year approaching (eek!), many folks want to circle back and assess the goals we set back in January. Or maybe they were forgot about all together and now it’s time to get back on track. And some of us may be thinking about all the ice cream, boardwalk fries, and BBQ beers we enjoyed this summer with our significant others. With September approaching, many of you may have newfound motivation to step up your game when it comes to healthy lifestyle habits. And that’s why I’m stoked to share a new accountability challenge I’ll be kicking off this September! Continue reading “Fall Back into Health Habits: Accountability Challenge Announcement!”
