Diet & Fitness. I gained 40 pounds when I was pregnant with my son and after 3+ years have lost only 35 of them. I am certainly not a poster child for dieting and weight loss. I just try to focus on eating healthy foods and keeping active. Happily, I just don’t have the energy or vanity to worry about being a size 2.


Looking to show off your personal style in yoga class? Now you can create your very own custom, eco-friendly yoga mat. Yogamatic also has an amazing selection of designs. Check on their website to find the Sex in the City-inspired mat originally designed for Sarah Jessica Parker. The design features lots of fabulous shoes – Manolo Blanik, Jimmy Choo & more!

Diet Tips, Programs & Tools

Here are a few websites to get you thinking healthy and to help you learn about various diet programs.

Exercise DVDs

Unless you are Nicole Kidman or Halle Berry, you are inevitably going to gain a few more pounds during your pregnancy than you wish you had. Oh well… Once you have fully recovered from the birth (give yourself at least a few months) it may be time to think about getting back into your skinny jeans. Obviously, when you have a baby it becomes harder and harder to make it to the gym to workout. Exercise DVDs are perfect because you can pop one in anytime. Here are a few that you may want to try:
