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 :)

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 :)
