I know what you are thinking. The last thing you want to do after a workout is sit in a hot, stinky room full of semi-nude people, sweating profusely together, forcing you to wash your hair afterwards.  But, if you can muster the courage to enter, you are going to receive amazing benefits that outweigh…

When it comes to your body, in my opinion, average is beautiful. Extreme fitness and nutrition does not a healthy lifestyle make. Balance is the key to success.  On one end you have elite athletes and that model wearing Guess Jeans.  On the other end you have the morbidly obese who struggle to walk up…

It was said that Bruce Lee often drove his wife, Linda, crazy because he would sporadically burst into exercise at the most inopportune times.

“…when you’re living healthfully, eating right, exercising regularly and treating your body with respect, but you still don’t look like the cover of a magazine, you shouldn’t be made to feel bad about where you are now.” – Laura Williams, M.S.Ed.  An interesting article circulated around the internet about Brooke Birminghan, of Brook Not on…

I’ve been in Thailand for a month.  At first, I was nervous about finding my food balance.  I wasn’t familiar with the food, I was scared to get sick (I have an evil GI tract) and many times, I was going on blind faith, picking dishes on menus with no English translation.  But, in the…

One of my first orders of business upon arrival in Thailand was to do a Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) class.  It’s the national sport of Thailand, similar to baseball in the U.S.  But, unlike baseball, there isn’t a whole lot of standing around, waiting for action to happen.  This is a high-intensity, high-contact sport that…

PGF is about finding the balance. Whether you are partying your ass off, training for a triathlon, working hard or just living your life, to me, having a balance is critical to survival. I need to workout and I’m addicted to endorphins. Most of the time, a good sweat session is just what the doctor…

Moving from New York to Southeast Asia = Holy sensory overload!  I’ve experienced new smells, new sights, new food and most of all, a new level of mental strength I never knew I had. I woke up the morning of my flight to Bangkok ready to face the great unknown journey  ahead.  Then…shit happened.  …

(7 Days with Parents) + (2 Mom’s Home Cooking) + (No Gym) + (1 way ticket to Bangkok) = PartyGirlFit feeling exhausted, bloated, wobbly, anxious, scared and excited! The last week has left me overwhelmed with emotions that I don’t know how to express.  I spent 3 days with my family and 3 days with…

I’m feeling less than stellar today as I went out hard on Saturday night.  It’s been a looonnngg time since I went out that late, but the night was so much fun, I couldn’t help myself!  My friend Jackie was celebrating her birthday and the night started off at a friend’s place in Brooklyn.  For…

I love and hate yoga.  It’s certainly good for you, it makes you long and lean while increasing flexibility and foundational strength and blah, blah, freakin’ blah.  I never regret doing a yoga class, but getting me there is pretty tough.  Maybe it’s the fear of all the chanting and hippie teachers that usually are…

I’ve been on a bender for a week.  After announcing my big move to S.E. Asia, I’ve had a great time seeing friends and family and going out almost every night of the week.  If you know me, you know it’s hard for me to abstain from enjoying a glass (or bottle) of wine when…

Last week I announced big news that Manoj and I are moving to SE Asia for at least a year and starting our adventures in Thailand.  I’m so excited for this new chapter in my life and even more excited to kick my ass (and yours) into shape Thai style.  Those b*tches be skinnnnney!   I’m…

I have VERY exciting news to share!  This week I became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer!!!  I am so pumped for this new chapter in my life!.  A lot of people have asked me about the specifics involved to become a personal trainer (PT).  Do you need to have a 6 pack? No.  Do you need to have a tight ass…

Hi ladies!  Happy Friday!  If you’ve had a week like mine, then you need to leave work at 5pm, find the closest happy hour and order a stiff drink, a delicious cocktail, a glass of wine, or really, all the above…times 2! While it might seem like a good idea to have a few drinks…

Happy Monday!  Hopefully you guys had a great weekend.  This is the first Monday in a long while that I’m feeling fantastic.  I’m especially proud that I didn’t indulge too much even though I had a going away party and old friends in town.  I went to bed at a decent hour on Friday, Saturday…

Two years ago on January 5th, I reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa with my husband, Manoj, and five other friends.  It was one of the most grueling and difficult things I have ever done but by far one of the most rewarding.  We spent 8 days on the mountain, slept in tents,…

Holy Holiday Hangover.  The month of December was basically parties, booze, sweets and excessive indulgence.  I’ve been a bit MIA on the blog because December was so busy with holiday parties and events with family and friends.  I love a reason to get dressed up and party but my body is now feeling the pain…

It is so easy to live your life working towards satisfying other people’s expectations.  It’s easy to get swayed by what other people want from you, by what others are doing around you, by what you want other people to think of you.  Which is why it’s incredibly challenging to live the life you really…

I just returned from a trip to the countryside of South India to visit my grandmother.  When I say countryside I don’t mean a beautiful farm-house amidst hay stacks.  I mean rural South India…no indication of being touched by the western world.  No fast food, no vending machines, and no bars!   Only a few…
