I am no newbie to the barre scene. I’m a devoted Physique 57 fan and I’ve tried all the major studios: Exhale, Barre3, Pure Barre, FlyBarre and Xtend Barre. I’ve even taken a barre class in Panama. But recently, I’ve fallen hard for Pop Physique. This LA-based studio opened in NYC last year and I’ve had nothing but fabulous experience sinces.
Pop Physique, I love you. Let me count the ways.
Happy Wednesday! ICYMI, this January, I went gluten-free, caffeine-free, alcohol-free, processed sugar-free, nut-free, and vegan all at once. Here’s what happened. Have you ever tried anything like this?

Monday: Pop Physique (still loving it)
Hi, everyone! What do you think of the new look of Cuckoolemon.com? I would love your opinion; let me know in the comment section if you have any feedback.
Now a few housekeeping items. (Sorry Matt, this is the only housekeeping I plan to do this week.)
Thank you to everyone who entered the REI Giveaway Sweeps. I’d like to congratulate commenter JUANITO! (real name: Jon Goren) on being the randomly selected winner! (I used a random number generator, FYI.) Jon, check your email for your gift card!
A few weeks ago, I participated in Kale with a Side of Fries‘ two-week winter detox jam. I am going to write about my experience soon, for sure. Since the detox, I’ve had a renewed excitement for healthy cooking. I wanted to bake something sweet. I scoured the internet for a healthy muffin recipe and found this 5-ingredient one from the blog Pinch of Yum. The recipe is super simple and the muffins were delicious. I used these gluten-free oats from Bakery on Main. They have 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving! (No one is paying me to say this. Though I would be open to accepting dollars, OKAY Bakery on Main?)
Here’s this week’s workout recap!
Hi Everyone. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. There’s still time to enter the raffle to win $25 to REI. What do you have to lose?
Now for this week’s workout diary!
Every time I worked out last week
Monday: I took a walk in Jamaica State Park in Vermont with the ski crew. The trail was a sheet of ice. The first thing I thought when got out of the car was: “Oh, here is where I sprain my ankle.” But luckily no such accident occurred.

Good morning! Hello from the other side of a busy week. (For what it’s worth, I like being busy.)
Last weekend, I took a trip to the west coast to visit my best girl Natalie, who recently became a mom! I flew to San Francisco with friends Simone and Jamie to meet baby Ellie and pay her mom a visit and it turned into a really special weekend! But before we get into that, this week’s recap.
