I am always on the lookout for gadgets and products that make my life easier. Between parenting four kids, keeping my freelance career afloat, and training for an endurance race, I need things that bring simplicity to my life. I recently acquired a new kitchen device–the Instant Pot. If you’re not familiar with the Instant Pot, you are not alone. I had no idea what it was either but now I wonder how I ever got along without it. [Read more…]
Happy Sunday everyone. Well, I have some fantastic news to report. After just 40 days of training and fundraising, I have officially raised the $1800 required to participate in the 2-day walk in July! Yay! I am SO excited. But, I am not finished yet, I want to continue raising money because I believe that I WILL see a cure for breast cancer and other cancers in my lifetime. But, finding a cure does not come cheap, and that is why both Avon and Komen have these types of walks—to gain awareness and raise money for much-needed research and community education programs. So, please continue supporting my efforts by making a donation today (Donate HERE: http://info.avon39.org/goto/cbbhattacharya). I can’t thank you all enough for all the support you have shown so far. I am very lucky to have you all in my corner. [Read more…]

Nevertheless, the primary benefit gained from these activities is to support baby’s brain development. Here are five activities that you can do with your child to maximize learning and brain development. [Read more…]
Hello, beautiful people. Welcome back to another week of my Avon 39 training. This week was quite the week, let me tell you. Besides increasing my mileage by A LOT, I also was dealing with entertaining out of town guests. At the beginning of the week, I felt great but fatigue and soreness have caught up with me by late week.
If you read anything about my training last year, you know that I dealt with unrelenting plantar fasciitis pain while training for the half marathon. Luckily this year I am not dealing with feet issues. But, I have been dealing with muscle soreness. [Read more…]
