Blue-restaurant review. 

As many of you know once you start talking to me the conversation always somehow diverts to food.  I can’t help it.  I love to eat.  And not just eat gluttonously everything in sight, but I luv to eat real good food.  

We went to Blue restaurant for our anniversary dinner/lunch.  Omg! 5 stars without question! The service was very attentive and polite. Our waiter always made sure we had what we needed. We ordered mussels for appetizer and sangria for drinks. Sangria was delicious. Mussels were made in white wine feta cheese and sausage. Never would’ve thought this combo would work but they were perfect. I ended up drinking the broth like a soup. Yumm! For entree we ordered Love Letters-mussels, clams, calamari and lobster tail in a delicious red sauce over papardelle. Omg. It’s just heavenly! Devoured it all without a blink. And for desert we had the chocolate cake with ice cream and cappuccino. If u r thinking “neh, chocolate cake. So what”. Trust me u have another thing coming. It was moist and had a crunch on top and with ice cream it was a perfect ending to the meal. When the waiter came over and asked how was our meal my hubs said it was a perfect anniversary dinner. To which we were given a complimentary desert wine each. That just shows their attention to detail. We had a great time. The view is of Bayonne and it’s industrial but I luv outdoors so I see things differently. There was non stop action of boats coming in and jet skiers having water fun even a family of ducks showed up. I really enjoyed that entertainment. We will definitely be back there. The ride was worth it!

Growing up in Kiev, Ukraine I was a super energetic kid so I always was involved in some kind of sports. But I had trouble focusing so ended up always switching sports. But the luv of moving stuck with me. I started out ice skating, moving onto swimming-which actually warranted me being on the Junior Olympic Swim Team, and short distance track running. While being involved in sports helped tire me out a bit the training was boring and didn’t have that spark. One day when I was 7 I got a pair of roller skates and man oh man did I fall in luv with those. I loved them so much I would roller-skate everywhere.
After immigrating to U.S. I became preoccupied with becoming American and soaking up all the things that I couldn’t experience before so my luv for sports fell by the wayside. I tried to exercise but it wasn’t consistent. After I was able to get some money I bought myself a pair of rollerblades. We lived in Bensonhurst so I used to go by the promenade and rollerblade there.
After getting married and gaining newlywed 15lbs I decided to join a gym and lose some weight. Well, that was it! I fell in love with weightlifting and how it was transforming my body so much that I became a Personal Trainer. One day after scrolling thru Muscle Fitness magazine and Oxygen magazine and seeing these beautiful strong women I became intrigued with the way they look and decided to sign up for a Figure/Bodybuilding competition. I hired a trainer (who later became a very close friend) and embarked on this new journey. The training was tough and the diet was brutal but the rewards were great. I met another trainer with the same passion for bodybuilding who worked at the Reebok Sports Club (now Equinox) and invited me to check out his gym. That was an experience in itself and I was fortunate to be hired.
After a couple of competitions I decided to retire from Figure competitions and concentrate on having a family. I had to overcome some health issues first. While rehabbing my body back to health so to peak, I learned about this wonderful school-Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). I was so intrigued by their philosophies that I decided to sign up for the course. In the middle of my semester I became pregnant with my fist child. After graduating I decided to dedicate my life to being a mom. Working out all thru my pregnancies definitely helped me stay healthy and strong to deal with demands of motherhood. After My daughter was born I wanted to get back in shape and so I started running. I fell in love with being outdoors and exploring. I ran my 1st race in March 2013, and my fist Half Marathon, Staten Island own, in October 2013. I have been running ever since.
