the to-do list you can actually do

courtesy of real simple magazine (given to me by gamma one random day), this is a practical to-do list for those of us that are super obsessive about them. they keep me sane...i love them...and this one is just humorous. if you have ever added something on your to-do list that was super easy to do just so you could cross it off, you will love this.

* hit snooze
* shampoo; rinse; repeat
* forget to floss
* eat bagel
* forget to put laundry in the dryer. clothes can be permanently
pressed (whatever that means) tomorrow
* screen phone calls
* see mailman coming and realize Netflix and bills are still on the
kitchen counter
* get sucked into a movie on lifetime
* grow anxious as Meredith Baxter (Birney?) murders the dad
from 7th Heaven
* put off remaining duties while readng celebrity gossip
* decide for yourself "who wore it best"
* skip pilates
* eat a burrito
* pick up The World is Flat on nightstand
* read paragraph. put book down
* leave eye makeup on
* lights out

haha, nothing is ever that funny/easy/worthless. but humorous and entertaining it is. and i have to be honest, i am guilty of a few of those things in my everday life. but god bless to-do lists :)

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
