Breakfast to Bed.

Friday, January 13, 2012


Please to enjoy Cat. I love me some Cat. I met me some Cat when I was in NYC. Please to enjoy Cat.   Hi. This is me. I’m Cat and I blog at Breakfast to Bed   This is also me. Yeah, I know it’s blurry, but it’s a cell phone picture from 2004. [...]

oooh SNAP. A NIGHT-exerciser responds:

Saturday, January 7, 2012


Hi my name is Katie and I can’t work out before 5:30 at night.   <<All Respond…Hi Katie>> That’s right I said it.  I can’t get up early and workout like some many other amazing fitness junkies.  I tried a few times and it was a complete bust for me.  My lungs don’t seem to want [...]

The Mysterious Middle (guest post).

Wednesday, December 14, 2011


I fear I may never learn the art of moderation.  I seem wired to either behave in one extreme or the opposing other.  In other words, I have no concept of the middle. In my past, I struggled with addiction and all the fun stuff that entails-hopelessness, turmoil, shame…and obviously, no exercise.  But since February [...]

Exercise like a child-just don’t call it that. (guest post)

Thursday, December 8, 2011


As a personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I’ve managed to acquire a rather impressive collection of portable exercise equipment. Assorted dumbbells, various yoga blocks and straps, skipping ropes, stability balls, Bosu, ankle weights, elastic tubing and (my personal favorite), a TRX. Usually these objects reside in the trunk of my car, waiting to be [...]

The Evolution of Fitness from Dreaded Task to Lifestyle (guest post).

Thursday, December 1, 2011


While writing Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom, we surveyed more than 200 moms and learned that those moms who already make fitness a habit aren’t in it for weight loss or a tighter tummy. Surprised? Oh sure, many of us start out for those reasons, but that’s not why [...]

If it’s not fun, it’s not getting done.

Thursday, November 3, 2011


How can a map, some painter’s tape and a couch turn into fun fitness? You’d be surprised.   When I was having trouble fitting exercise into my schedule, I had a look at the different parts of my day and realized that my best plan was to try to work with the kids instead of [...]

The blind food critic

Thursday, October 27, 2011


My name is Dan Aronoff and I am New York City’s only blind food critic.   Staying healthy and fit in this environment can be tricky at times, but I have found effective ways to accomplish such a goal. I am 31 years old and happen to be totally blind.  I had a brain tumor at [...]

Avoiding the train wreck.

Thursday, October 20, 2011


I have well engrained habits of no-breakfast-no-movement-no-water days fueled by caffeinated-whacked-out-blood-sugar-and-adrenaline. And I can tell you that I was a wreck - a train wreck actually. But, I’m happy to report that eating this elephant, one tiny bite at a time, has resulted overall in a MONUMENTAL shift in my lifestyle. Little by little. A [...]

Yoga for all sizes.

Thursday, October 13, 2011


It’s the third Friday of the month and you’re out for cocktails with the usual group.  Early into the evening you notice one of your friends has lost some weight and initiated a self imposed one drink limit.  You ask what’s up.  Her eyes light up as she begins to eagerly espouse the benefits of [...]
