Grenada Trip Gorgeous In Grey IMG_6993

The Internet knows me as DocFabulous (more on that later) and I could possibly be considered a travel junkie. I literally hear the ocean breeze and palms trees calling my name in my sleep! I’ve diagnosed myself as a perpetual summer chaser, and my path to getting my next fix always leads to the JFK airport here in New York. Last month I treated myself (I do this often) to a quick girl trip with my spirit twin, Leslie and we flew to the beautiful island of Grenada, affectionately known as the Spice Island!

My Chapter 39: Thoughts On My Last Year Of My Thirties

my chapter 39

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. ~ Audre Lorde

Last week I gracefully arrived at the last year of my thirties. No breakdowns, I promise! But I did realize that it’s even more important for me to tell you that it gets better. That while I don’t have it all figured it out, I now believe that not having it all figured out is the joy and possibly the secret to what Oprah has coined as “how to live your best life”.

FIT FRIDAYS: 5 Running Tips For Beginning Runners Like You

5 tips for beginning runners

“I’m not a runner.”

“Running is NOT for me.”

“Running is way too hard.”

“I’m too overweight to run.”

#AllLies

The beauty of running is that all ages and fitness levels can get into it. And even I have made every excuse in the book as to why running was not for me. But one day I dared to try something different. I simply could not trust myself to get in a decent workout on my own at the gym without quitting prematurely or even breaking a sweat. And quite frankly, I was bored out of my mind. I had no one to hold me accountable and was pretty disappointed at my results (or lack thereof). I needed something totally different and outside of my comfort zone. I needed a(n) accountability partner(s). Personal training was not an option for me due to my beer budget, so I had to make the most of the resources I had readily available.

3 Reasons Why I Loved NYC’s Wine & Food Festival

nycfww buick

So about NYC’s Wine & Food Festival–it was wildly amazing! I’ve recently decided to relinquish all of my inhibitions when it comes to food. My palette is far less progressive than your average 39-year-old so I’ve been doing everything in my power to change that. The New York Wine & Food Festival seemed like a great place to challenge my taste buds.

Thanks to Buick I was able to experience some of the best food pairings by some of the top chefs. I know you’re wondering what on earth does a car brand have to do with food and or wine (no drinking and driving people!). View Full Post

Don’t Have Time To Head To The Doctor? Here’s Your Solution!

Multitasking Businesswoman

It’s true! Being a mother is the hardest job ever. I thought that I would be less worried now that my son is 20 but that is far from the truth. But it was much harder when he was younger. I remember when my son was in middle school I tried to trust that he’d walk home the two blocks we lived from his school without getting in trouble. Bad decision on my behalf. There were broken teeth, bullies and he even got lost once. And by lost I mean he decided to head to the playground with a group of friends instead of coming home.

Add on all the random sniffles and flus (oh and he played football) and you can imagine the stress I endured. Caring for your children and your family can send you to the crazy house.
