Barre Class at Endurance Pilates Boston

by Megan on Tue, 01/06/2015 - 5:35pm | 0 comments

Sometimes (ok, I’ll be honest…..all the time) I get in a fitness rut, and don’t take the time to try new things. As you may or may not know, I love lifting weights…so lifting is my entire fitness routine. So many of my clients and friends take pilates or barre class and tell me how challenging it is, but to this day I avoided barre class because I thought it would be &l... read more

Bouncing back after too much Holiday fun:)

by Megan on Sun, 01/04/2015 - 6:45pm | 0 comments

What does the New Year mean to you? I don’t think I’m alone in saying that the Holidays (which were amazing this year:):) take their toll on many of our bodies. I had a photo shoot in December, one week after Thanksging, and I fond it to be pretty challenging. It’s easy to say “stay focused” until I’m at my mom’s house surrounded by home made fudge, cho... read more

Cheat days

by Megan on Sun, 11/23/2014 - 5:59pm | 0 comments

Recently I was reading a great blog written by my weight lifting coach Bret Contreras, and it got me thinking about the subject of cheat days. So many times, when I'm eating especially clean and healthy for a photoshoot or competition, I look forward to having a day (or a meal) where I can have whatever I want. When I was younger I used to tell myself that it was ok to take the weekends off.... read more

Adjusting the temperature of your success

by Megan on Wed, 09/24/2014 - 5:27pm | 0 comments

We all have a set temperature, a place where we feel comfortable in business, in our physical bodies, and in love. If you think about it, it's not that different from the fact that we all have a set temperature for how we feel comfortable in our homes or when we're sleeping. This is fine as far as setting the thermostat, but when it comes to your personal success physically, businesswise... read more

You reap what you sow.....attracting what you want

It's this simple. Life is a self fulfilling prophecy. Everything that we do comes from our thoughts and beliefs. Do you think that you'll really get the perfect body that you've been working on if you can't believe it, know that it's going to happen, and have the full confidence that it will be's just a matter of time? In life it's only too easy to have ... read more

Healthy food storage containers

by Megan on Sun, 08/24/2014 - 7:00pm | 0 comments

Finding a healthy way to pack my lunch, store food in the fridge, and reheat foods has proven a little more challenging than I would have expected. I've been trying to lighten up on some of the chemicals in my life, and have found them to be in some surprsing places. Regardless of how healthy, fresh and organic your lunch may be, if you aren't packing it up the right way you could be exp... read more

Setting the goals you want

by Megan on Thu, 07/24/2014 - 4:28pm | 0 comments

Have you ever had a goal, and gone after it for weeks or months, only to discover that what you were going after wasn't what you wanted at all, it was actually what someone else wanted for you, or something that you thought you should want, or would make someone else happy? The process of goal setting can be a tricky thing, and when distinctly setting your goals, it's crucial to know that... read more

Day off from the gym today...

by Megan on Wed, 07/23/2014 - 6:34am | 0 comments

So lately I have been making some crazy gains in the gym, getting so much stronger and basically surprising myself with the amount of weight that I am able to add every week. There are sometimes months and months where I can't seem to get any stronger, but the past few weeks have been truly amazing. I'm sure there are several factors: more sleep, less interruptions for my sleep, eating m... read more and I can't be together!

The past month has been crazy. I use that word too frequently, but it's true. My 7 year old Yorkshire Terrier Teddy became alarmingly ill, I moved, and had quite a few changes at my work as well. Just as all of this was happening, I also had my 38th birthday. I have never been taken out to dinner so many times for my birthday as I was this year. I feel lucky to have so many amazing friend... read more

My first Yoga class! What to wear?

by Megan on Mon, 04/14/2014 - 8:19pm | 0 comments

I'm taking my first yoga class today with a friend, and I'm hoping it will help with relaxation and flexibility. I'm so comfortable lifting weights, but just a little unsure about yoga as I have never tried it. I googled "what to wear to Yoga" and wanted to share this great article I found. I am in compete agreement about the short shorts, how uncomfortable:) Here is a li... read more
