I’m Anne, a Washington D.C. area Registered Dietitian with an online/virtual nutrition counseling private practice and health/fitness blogger over at fANNEtastic food. I have a lot of readers and clients ask me how to [...]


Bath Time! {For Adults}

I have gone from a shower aficionado to a total bath babe. When we were buying our first home, I didn’t even CARE if the master bathroom had a tub (but the Husband really wanted one).  I am so glad that we ended up with a big soaking tub because I am totally addicted to [...]


We’re On A Boat

Hello from Barbados! I am currently on the Cabot Celebrity Summit cruise. Each year, Cabot Coop takes about 40 – 50 community-oriented volunteers and treats them to a week-long cruise. Most of the ‘Community Celebrities’ give so much of their own time and money away that they rarely have a chance to treat themselves. It’s [...]


So, remember how I’m training for a half marathon? (My last half marathon – it was very epic!)   Well, I’m still chugging along with my training plan.  It’s challenging to stick with it when it’s so cold outside, but I’m doing pretty good. I’m excited to do a long race in Charlotte, as I’ve [...]


I am so happy to post this flashback blog from the always entertaining and uplifting Janae at Hungry Runner Girl.  Her current running goals are to finish a marathon in 3:00 and a half marathon in 1:20 (wowza!).   I saw THIS article the other day and loved the idea behind it so much that [...]


I love throw dinner parties and cook for my friends, but I cannot imagine cooking for Team USA during The Winter Games!  No pressure, right?  Not only does your food need to be delicious, but it’s also got to be satisfying and fueling.  After all, nutrition can make or break the athletes’ quest for GOLD! [...]


I’m Going Crazy…

That’s all I could think as I tried to plow through 5.0 miles on the treadmill. I’m going crazy!  I’m going crazy!  Arrrrrrgh.  Felt like I was truly losing my mind.  I greatly admire those who can run on the treadmill, but I am simply not that woman.   I tried a  bunch of my [...]


If your house burned down, who would take care of your pets while you tried to piece your life back together?  What if your dog couldn’t stay with you or you had no money to feed your cat?  It’s a horrible thought, right?  But there’s help available – and that’s where Red Paw Emergency Relief [...]


Adventures in Baby Sleep Training, Part II

A follow-up to Adventures in Baby Sleep Training. Every week, I get lots of comments and emails about one post in particular – the sleep training post.  Desperate moms stumble across it in the wee hours of the night and email me to say, “HELP! How can I get my baby to sleep through the [...]


Brain Dump {Again}

I’m writing a post about baby and toddler sleep. It’s a follow up to Adventures in Baby Sleep Training.  It should go up later today! Speaking of sleep, I want to go back to bed because…   It’s COLD!   Understatement of the year, right? I’m sure many of you are even colder, though!  It’s 10 [...]


Changing your diet can be tough. Maybe you're going paleo, vegan, gluten-free, or whole food. Maybe you're doing it for health reasons, for ethical reasons, or because you just need to mix it up. Regardless of the how and why, dietary changes are challenging. After all, you've eaten one way, day in and day out, [...]


Body Weight Workout

We aren’t snowed in like many people in the Northeast; however, the weather in Charlotte is pretty rotten.  Cold, dreary, foggy. I must admit that I’m not very motivated to put on real people clothes, let alone go for my long run. And I *know* that Henry does not want to sit in the jogging [...]


Breaking Eggs

Today is a very important day. You see, for the last few months, we have been tearing our way through Breaking Bad.  And tonight, we will watch the final two episodes.   I am so excited.   Is it 7:30 PM yet?!   I already know what happens at the end of the series because [...]


Happy Five Years!

It’s our five year anniversary.  Neither one of us can believe it!  Five years?! Already? We definitely had to count on our fingers to make sure it was REALLY five years and not four.  Our wedding feels like it was just yesterday… It’s been five really great years.  It’s been easy to have a happy [...]
