It’s not about you.
In the last few weeks since the Biggest Loser finale (in which Rachel Frederickson loses 155 pounds in 7 months), clients and friends have asked me to weigh in. “Did she go too far? Do you think she’s too skinny now? Is she anorexic?”
I don’t watch the show. In fact, I had to do a bit of research to get the facts on this one. My opinion is this:…
Help! Diastasis Recti!
After giving birth, it’s time to get back to the gym, bust a move and get that pre-pregnancy figure back STAT, right? Let’s get sexy back!!!!!!!
Welllll, not so fast there, speedy. Approximately 70% of new moms develop diastasis recti at some point in their third trimester. This common problem is the separation of the abdominal wall, specifically…
Say NO to Fitness Fads
Is your trainer/fitness teacher/coach certified? Can they back up the program you are on with scientific evidence? Or are they shooting in the dark and making the class “hard” for the sake of sweat?
With all of these fad workouts springing up everywhere (and more on the horizon), it’s tough to weed out the fluff and tempting to try every single…
Candy Hearts No More
Brace yourself: I’m a recovering sugar addict. Well, mostly in the beginning of the year, but any unseasonal jelly bean would have sufficed. Going to CVS or Target after Christmas was a test of willpower that I failed miserably most of the time.
After I got engaged, I desperately wanted to change my ways. But as Valentine’s Day approached, I felt…
Japanese Vegetable Beef Soup
Stanley and I spent the last week of January on the Pacific shores of Baja, Mexico. Since we started our vacation with a stomach virus (silver lining: washboard abs!), breakfast, lunch and dinner were cause for celebration, and indeed we did.
Nightly, we visited a sushi bar that served the most amazing Japanese vegetable soup. I couldn’t get enough! Now…

A Birthday Letter
My sister is 3 years and 3 months older than me. We have just enough of an age gap that kept us from being best of playmates as children and as we entered our teen years, our arguments ended in hair pulls and loud shouting matches. She taught me fierce independence and how to hold my ground.
We bonded at the piano. My sister is a gifted pianist who can plunk any tune, no…
Project Hannah: Week 3, Finals Sprain!
Ever feel like no matter what you do, your body’s just like, “Grrl. NO.”…
This is Hannah at the helm with my third weekly update on all things “Hannah Project” or lack thereof (see photo above and read on). I know I mentioned this before, but my NYC Ivy League life is, in a nutshell, insane. I’ve entered finals week and have
One of my very best friends called me with a familiar dilemma: her current boyfriend wants to “see other people” but remain in their relationship and would she mind?
The answer at the outset seems obvious: dump ‘im.
Not so fast, there, Skippy! As always, these issues are complicated, emotional and sticky. Many times, we enter relationships…
Project Hannah: Week 2
What’s up, y’all! It’s me, Hannah, at the helm with an update on my fitness journey.
One of the biggest reasons I jumped aboard “Project Hannah” was to get a better handle my high-stress life. The last week or so hasn’t been particularly great since finals season and the dreaded Thanksgiving holiday were looming. I always…
