happy mothers day mom!

huh?! what?! is it mothers day?! no no, dont panic sillies...i just feel as though my mom deserves the shout out. she is one of those people that just get me. and i get her. and we gel. we just work. were besties and i love her so much. can you hear cumbay-ya playing?! haha...just kidding.

but, really, i am just so proud. we are coming up on a very VERY very very VERY tragic anniversary and she and i are just making it through life together. we are doing more than that...we are thriving. we are doing so much! but, it doesnt soften the blow of what we lost. it never will. but i know one thing is for sure: mom...i love you. SO much.

february 2010 marks the 2-year anniversary of the day god decided that dad should head upstairs. i still cringe, and get the chills merely thinking about it. im not going to make this entry all sappy, as i dont want to. but i chatted with dad last night when i went to bed. i like to do that :)

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 :)
