So as part of The Year of Hope, I’m trying new things. Yoga happens to be one of them. My friend and amazing Windy City Social advocate, Beth Goldman, recommended 105f, a place on Clark, just south of Diversey. I did my research and got the following tips about my first class: Bring your own [...]Read more
Something really scary happened to me last week and I wanted to let you all know about it to keep you safe and smart when you travel late at night.
I went to happy hour with my friends and ended up taking a cab home after having a few cocktails.
When I got into the cab, I told the driver where I lived and told him to take the drive to my exit and then go west. He got to the drive and went south (the wrong direction) When I told him he was going the wrong way I got uncomfortable (I actually texted a few friends with the cab number and let them know what was going on.)Read more
Everyone loves Snow White and no one likes the Wicked Witch. Think about it. Well, ok, the WW doesn’t like Snow White, but that’s because she’s jealous. People rally around Snow to help her, even the WW’s staff went behind her back to help Snow out. We love puppies and babies and get up in [...]Read more
Just when I felt like I was starting to get back in shape, I’ve had a few set backs. 1st, I’ve bounced back 5 lbs (but that’s another blog post.) Secondly, I haven’t been able to get moving lately. Yesterday, I couldn’t event do 20 minutes of my favorite Sat. A.M. Cardio Kick box class. [...]Read more
Thanks to an invitation to my facebook friend Jill, I was invited to go to a taping of Oprah’s Life Class in Chicago. I of course jumped on the chance to go, not evening knowing the topic. When I heard the session I was going to was Iyanla talking about single moms and there was [...]Read more
Today was a bit more on track than yesterday, I went for a 20 minute job around the neighborhood, which I noticed made a big difference in my eating for the day! I got in my 10,000. 3,000 were running in place and around my condo. All in all, I ate more than I should [...]Read more
I couldn’t find my fitbit and ate wayyy to much. I kept track of the food, for the most part. I’m fairly convinced that I’ll never be able to get off of these diet pills. The second I stop, I start eating up a storm again. I’m up 5 lbs so I started taking them [...]Read more
So once again, I’m starting my diet and I’d like to invite you all along this time. I’ve been slacking and eating whatever I’d like, not doing what I say exercise wise and it bugs me. What I’ve learned over the past few months is that I do much better in a pack than I [...]Read more

In June of last year, one of my favorite people in the world, Steffani LeFevour invited me to an introductory session at LifeBook lounge. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but figured it would be a typical self help course. I was pleasantly surprised to find very high end, high level thinking professional and personal development series [...]Read more
I’ve been having a little trouble tracking what I eat. I’ll track a few things then stop. I keep saying I want to kick it up a notch, but I haven’t been acting like it. So as my phase of Heather Frey’s Change Challenge she’s leading for Ricki Lake, I’m going to post my daily [...]Read more
Thanks to my friend and wonderful blogger, Trish from Night Owl Mama and Lee Jeans for hosting a Style Party. I must admit, my first thought was that Lee Jeans were “mom jeans” and not for me, but I’m always interested in finding a pair of good looking jeans, really like Trish and thought it would be [...]Read more
