Bare Bones Yoga – Keeping Yoga Simple
Bare Bones Yoga was born out of the inspiration Karen had in late 2008 during the early stages of the economic recession. As she looked at her own budget, she evaluated the cost of yoga classes and thought it would be wonderful if athletic, challenging, fun yoga classes could be offered in an affordable way: a basic space where students brought their own mats and the main focus of the space was yoga. While there’d be no retail services or amenities like towels and water, there would be solid, challenging classes at an affordable price. Around the same time, she ran into a student of hers who expressed a love of yoga but shared that she didn’t have the money for class. That was the “a-ha” moment Karen needed. She contacted a friend and found a unique space in which to offer class. Bare Bones Yoga was born! After the space in the Fenway was no longer available, the Bare Bones concept continued, using the core concept of “keeping yoga simple.” Karen uses this as the foundation of how she provides yoga services to adults and children.
Bonnie’s Bootcamp Blog - Blah Blah Blah from Bonnie’s Bootcamp
Bonnie, a true beauty queen, both inside and out, represented the State of Vermont in 1992 in The Miss USA Pageant. Her poise, grace and dedication, which launched her into pageantry, are evident when she takes command of one her famous “Boot Camp” sessions. Bonnie says, “My beauty pageant days seem like ages ago, but the confidence and social skills I acquired will always be with me.” To Bonnie, exercise is therapeutic. Most recently, it has helped her deal with the grief of losing her dear mother at the young age of 66, in November 2008. “Instead of spiraling into a deep hole, I dug really deep and somehow found inner strength from my passion for exercise, and created Bonnie’s Boot Camp which has moved me forward…and now I know there are brighter days ahead.” To Bonnie, exercise gives her “me” time to focus on herself both physically and mentally, and the importance of finding balance in your lives is something that she is continuously conveying to her clients. With over 10 years experience, Bonnie has worked with an elite clientele including: owners and managers of Boston based financial institutions, affluent society members, and wealthy suburban moms. As a wife and mother herself, moms see Bonnie as an inspiration encompassing body, beauty and brains. Bonnie always says, “If I can do it, you can too. I am just like you.”
Boston Mamas – A one-stop source for cool ideas & resources for families in Boston & beyond
Boston Mamas was developed, designed, and founded in July 2006 by Christine Koh, a Boston mama with a passion for people, communication, art, food, retail, web surfing, and all things mama-related. Christine spent a decade as an academic (she has a Ph.D. in music and brain science), although her family and friends had long urged her to make better use of her artistic inclinations. Christine spent a decade as an academic (she has a Ph.D. in music and brain science), although her family and friends had long urged her to make better use of her artistic inclinations. As she drew close to the end of her postdoctoral fellowship (the final training prior to a professorship) at MGH/Harvard/MIT, Christine finally came to terms with the fact that while she was a decent academic, she rather would perish instead of publish, and she decided to make a big leap. Within a few months, Christine hung up her research spurs, created Boston Mamas, launched her design site Posh Peacock, and began working as a freelance writer and editor. She also writes a personal blog - Pop Discourse – where she gives voice to her fascination with the intersecting streams of pop culture, the intellectually interesting or absurd, motherhood, and trying to “make it work” as a modern woman, and pens the column Minimalist Mama for Shoestring Magazine.
Carrots N Cake – Sharing My Life One Bite at a Time
My name is Tina, I’m 30-years-old, and I live in Boston, Massachusetts with my husband, Mal, and my pug, Murphy. Besides spending time with my family and friends (and, of course, blogging), I love to stay active. My favorite form of exercise is running, and I’ve run more than 20 races, including my first marathon in January 2011. I also enjoy walking, hiking, yoga, and Body Pump. (Ok, I’m a bit obsessed with Body Pump!) I also love baking, beer, dining out, and traveling.
My full-time job is blogging for Carrots ‘N’ Cake, but I also juggle a number of part-time gigs. I write another blog called Trading Up Downtown for a nutritional rating company called NuVal. The main focus of the blog is how to save money and select nutritious foods with the help of the NuVal system. Additionally, I write a weekly feature for Health.com as part of their Feel Great Weight program. And, in October 2009, I secured a book deal with Sterling Publishing. My book was published in May 2011 and it’s based off my blog, Carrots ‘N’ Cake.
Casual Dish - Living A Healthy Life with a little Indulgence
My passion is food, I love everything about it especially the memories it has created throughout my childhood and those it creates now with my girls. I only hope food will have the same effect on my daughters as well. I am on a journey to living a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying a little indulgence and taking my family along for the ride!
I started my blog, Delicious Dishings, more than three years ago, as a way to get all of my thoughts and ideas about food down somewhere because I talk about food so much it drives my friends and family crazy. You can’t get down a street with me without my pointing out some restaurant I have been to or heard about. Sometimes I’ll be in the middle of a conversation with a group of people and I’ll realize that all we’ve been talking about is food . . . and it’s my fault! I can’t help it. Think Catherine Zeta-Jones in No Reservations. On Delicious Dishings I showcase the dishes I’ve made as well as provide feedback on different recipes I’ve tested and offer tips and advice to my readers. I’ll occasionally post restaurant and book reviews, and I’ve started to write about a lot of events lately too. I love visiting my local farmers’ markets and can’t wait for them to start up again. I’m planning to do a lot of posts about what to do with great farmers’ market finds like zucchini, strawberries, and gorgeous summer tomatoes.

I love to eat. I love to live. I love to blog. And there it is! My blog-ventures started with my 101 in 1001 list. But there was still something keeping me from putting my heart in to writing just about that. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love food, cooking and finding the best hidden gems restaurants throughout New England, so naturally that needed to be included in the blog as well! Eat.Live.Blog follows me as I experience New England and push myself towards new goals every day! How I have time to fit it in between a new career, graduate school at Boston University, running Boston Brunchers (www.bostonbrunchers.com) and spending time with my amazing boyfriend and my puppy is a whole other story…
My name is Ali, I’m 28 years old, living in Boston, MA with my amazing husband and my adorable fur baby dachshund, Oscar. I currently work full time at a local University, part time as a function coordinator and am also working towards my M.Ed in School Counseling part-time. Talk about busy!!! I’m currently maintaining a 30 lb. weight loss. I began this blog as a way to document my food, fashion and fitness choices and to hopefully encourage others to become the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves. I love running, yoga, weight training, Crossfit and nutritious, whole foods.
- I’m Lizzy. I created my blog to talk about my love of running and to share my favorite cooking recipes. I love cooking and I’ve learned the less you eat out, the better you feel both as a runner and a person. I run because of the great emotional high you get after you finish a long run; you really feel like you can do anything. I cook because it’s such a release and stress reliever at the end of a long day. Plus, it makes me feel so much better to know the exact ingredients that go into my body. I take shortcuts in the kitchen by using the prep ahead method (cook once, eat twice or more) and I’m a huge fan of leftovers. I don’t often follow exact recipes, but I try to get the tastiest meals on the plate in the shortest amount of time. That’s my goal in the kitchen,out running and in life- get as much done in as little time as possible. Hope you enjoy!

Off the Monster - Home of my personal thoughts, musings, and [a few] rants about the Boston Red Sox.
First, and most importantly, I love the Boston Red Sox. Secondary details include the fact that I attend Trinity College in Hartford, live full-time in New Hampshire, and tune in to the Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots when it’s convenient for me…As you’ll discover in short order, I have a minor obsession with a certain diminutive second baseman, and I’m particularly impressed with his proclivity to hit doubles off the Green Monster. Thus, a name was born, in honor of one Dustin Pedroia: Off the Monster.

Prep Ahead and Dine In – Food for Busy Families Like Ours
After the birth of my second daughter, my love for cooking and baking began to falter. At around 5:00ish every evening, I found myself chopping, sautéing, stirring and prepping dinner with a screaming newborn in my arms and a clingy toddler on my leg. I knew something needed to change but I was not willing to sacrifice the quality of food I was putting on the table every night. I began seeking out and creating recipes that allowed me to quickly prepare meals and snacks ahead of time using good quality, all natural or organic ingredients. Now that I have three daughters, this prep ahead style is a necessity! So many of my friends want to feed their families healthy, homemade meals but dislike cooking! They struggle to find simple recipes that are quick to assemble and most importantly, can be prepared ahead of time! My hope is that these recipes will find their way into those homes and maybe even inspire a love for cooking or rekindle one they once had before the screaming toddlers descended upon their kitchen. Feeding your family should not be stressful. Take out is a great option that I certainly take advantage of on occasion. But, with a little bit of planning, it is really just as easy to prep ahead and dine in!
Hi all! My name is Stephanie and I blog over at Run for Fun. I am new to the blogging world, but started in order to fall back in love with running through uniting with other runners and bloggers. So far, I have done just that. I have met so many amazing people and made so many wonderful friends. As I continue my journey to 26.2, I am having a blast running and chatting with all of you! I hope that partnering with Boston Sports Woman is just another step along the way. For now, I live outside of Boston with my husband. We both recently became attorneys; I focus on health care policy. Now that we are free from the crazy world of law school, we are happily enjoying life. Blogging and running have only added to this joyous time in my life. I hope you will allow me to share a little part of this life with you and can’t wait to hear about yours too!
Runners Cookie – A Cookie Lover’s Journey Through Miles
My name is Corey – yes, I am a runner (who loves cookies) – and I started this blog is to share my ongoing journey to living a balanced, happy life.Running is one of my favorite things to do. It has brought me so much joy and has allowed me to grow in ways I would have never expected. I started how most people do – by running up the street. Throughout college, running became stress relieving, a way to explore the city I lived in, and I gradually fell more and more in love with it. Mostly, I enjoy writing about how overall physical wellness fits into my everyday life. Currently I am between undergrad and grad school in the psychology field, living in the Boston area, and just trying to figure out what’s next for me!
Semi-Sweet Online – A Practical Guide to Healthy Living
In 2001, at 32, I was a litigator at a top Boston firm leading the life of a successful urban professional. I was newly married, we’d just purchased a home in a lovely suburb, and I was trying to get pregnant. A week before our first wedding anniversary, we were awakened from our American dream when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My diagnosis, treatment and recovery forced me to rethink almost every aspect of my life: what my career meant to me, the definition of a family, and how in the world I ended up getting cancer in the first place. While bald and strung out on chemo, I had lots of time to ask “why me?” I was healthy, young, and had no family history of cancer. But I also learned that I wasn’t an anomaly – only 5-10% of breast cancers are inherited. I picked up Sandra Steingraber’s Living Downstream, about the growing body of evidence linking cancer to environmental contamination. It tripped my switch and I started reading everything I could get my hands on related to environmental links to cancer. I was horrified to learn about the “invisible hazards” that had seeped into every crevice of my life: parabens, hormone-mimics, pesticides and more in everything from food to cleaning products to cosmetics. It set me on a path to change. What I have learned has led me to drastically change the products we use and the food we eat.
She Wears a Red Sox Cap – A Kindergarten Teacher’s Take on Fitness, Food and All things Wedding
I started this blog for myself, as a way to chronicle my training for my first triathlon in July 2009. I quickly learned that blogging is not an isolated activity, there is a whole blogging community out there and so many people I can learn from. I have been known to tell stories about my blog friends as though I know them personally and I definitely feel like I do. Blogging has challenged me in ways that I never thought it would have. I have completed my first 5k and my first sprint triathlon since I started blogging. I took up spinning and tried kettlebell classes. I have tried new foods, new restaurants, and even met some new people.

I’ve always thought ‘craic’ was a funny word, I love when my cousins in Ireland say it. ‘The craic’ has different meanings to different people. To me, it means having fun, enjoyment, good times with good people, the different goings on around you. I try to use it in my everyday life but people usually just get confused, so here I am getting the word out there. It’s pronounced ‘crack’ (as in cocaine) so be careful when using it in public. There are opportunities all around us, at every moment. I believe we should live our lives to their best potential every single day; we should challenge ourselves, put ourselves out there and always be on the look out for new ways to have fun, to be entertained and to keep ourselves healthy and happy. I wanted to start this blog because I love looking for new restaurants to try, good happy hour deals, fun concerts, etc. I’m originally from New York; I went to college in the greater Boston area and after graduating I moved to Chicago for a year to serve as a full-time volunteer. After Chicago I wasn’t sure which location I would land in. Ultimately Boston it was, and Boston it is. I’m back in the area hoping to find some good ‘craic’ so that I may be able to pass it along to you. I appreciate you reading, enjoy!

Umommy -A mom’s quest to find the best eats for her family
Part-time advertising & marketing professional and mom to two hungry boys. My passion for food started in my family’s chinese restaurant, packaging takeout and marveling at the contents of the walk-in refrigerator. Steamed whole fish was a weekly dish and spaghetti and meatballs was served on a rare occasion when I was a kid. I’m attempting to reverse-engineer my own family’s dining habits, getting them to try everything and discover how food brings a family together.
Yogurt and Berries - Food.Health.Recipes.Fashion… Just a few of my favorite things
My name is Bridget and I am a 28-year old blogger living in the Greater Boston area with my husband and our 3 yr old fur ball, Bromley (a Shih Tzu mix). I’m a civil engineer by profession, but my true passions are cooking, baking, healthy eating, dancing, and staying fit and active! Losing 30lbs during and after college, I became increasingly interested in healthy eating and creating healthy recipes.

I’ve had my blog, Yogurt and Berries, for almost 3 years and hope to continue blogging for a long time. I strive to use wholesome REAL ingredients in everything I make and eat, and while most of my recipes are waist-line friendly, I also like to throw in some classic baked treats once in a while. However, I don’t like to limit my blog to just food and recipes. You’ll also find my musings about restaurants, traveling, fashion, my dog, my house, and anything in my life I want to share with my readers! Thanks for reading!
