Insatiable: This Counts as Dieting

I blame the opening of Matchbox’s new location on 14th Street NW. Sticky Rice’s bucket o’tots hasn’t helped either. But the truth is unavoidable: my favorite graphic tee is way too tight, and there’s no way my husband Jason and I are ever going to pull off skinny jeans. It’s time for our annual January Austerity Plan. We started early, scoping out the neighborhood for healthy eats.

Logan Circles

Get Ready for the January Logan-Palooza

As the calendar turns to a new year, Logan Circle is about to be inundated with people! January always brings out the crowds as folks return from holiday and as thousands of leather boys come to town for the annual Mid Atlantic Leather weekend, which has usually taken place at the Washington Plaza Hotel on Thomas Circle.

Bloomingdale Inn Closes

The Bloomingdale Inn – a cozy 10-bedroom bed and breakfast located at the northernmost tip of the neighborhood – was put up for sale in December. Owners of the inn, which consists of two fully connected Victorian row houses, listed one of the homes for $650,000 and the next-door property for $615,000. According to a real estate listing for the bed and breakfast, the Victorian-style property is a four-level row house outfitted with three fireplaces. The smaller unit does not have a kitchen or main staircase.

Tired of the Same Old New Year’s Resolutions? Here’s a New Possibility

Have you already forgotten your New Year’s resolutions or given up on them and feel guilty? Stop a moment and relax. Consider another way to prepare for the coming year.

Often in the fast paced environment of Washington, D.C., we get caught up in doing what we need to do and spend little time on being: being happy, being relaxed, being content. How can we learn to make this shift -- to enjoy our lives and to be well -- even as we remain busy and productive?
