in need of a colorful pick-me-up?

who isnt, right!? well, i came across these:, and ordered one. they are organic cotton bracelets based on a 200-year-old brazilian tradition. you make three wishes before tying one on; its believed that when the bracelet naturally falls off, your wishes will come true!! they are only $5, so i am super excited to get one!! :) once i get it, ill let you know how it is/looks/fits, etc.

i found myself laughing this morning remembering funny things in south carolina. it was ironic that aaron and i were in such a "water town" (i mean hilton head is an island and therefore surrounded by water) cause we both hate seafood. we kept getting recommendations for these crazy-ass intense seafood restaurants (by the front desk lady who just really loved us....she was cute!!). we just kept being like "yea, it sounds amazing...but eww!!!!!".

ok, must get back to work. more updates (and funny things) later!

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 :)
