feb first

lets start the month off right...(by wishing you a veryyyy happy february of course)!! i guess its considered the month of love...what are your plans?

this also means that spring cant be far behind, right? i hope so. spring and summer are such fun times of the year. and, quite honestly, i want to be tan again. my body really, and i mean REALLY needs color. i dont want to go tan or anything (at least yet) cause its still too early to show it off. and thatd be a waste.

man, hard to believe its already feb 1. that was a pretty fast month. just this morning, while i was getting dressed, it hit me that i live in los angeles, and have done so for 7 months. wow! 7 months! so much has happened, so many things have been done. but i mean its still kinda weird that i live in LA. (however, i am reminded every time i think about my mom....)...but i digress....

its also a time we "celebrate" (a term i use VERY loosely) the 2 year anniversary of the passing of daddio. i had a good tear-up last night, and have been talking to him a lot lately. id really like a visit. the other day my windshield wipers went crazy (as in, turned on full blast and kept finatically going every few seconds for about 10 minutes. then turned off). i hadnt touched a thing. it wasnt raining. this has happened a few times before since we lost dad...maybe its "our thing". he knows that by doing that i will know its him talking to me. i absolutely believe this to be true. so, thanks dad! i heard you loud and clear :) haha...

hope everyone is having a happy monday, a good start to february and an all around good day.

ill check back later :)

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.

2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.

ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

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 :)
