a coworker of mine was dating a guy (who she is now engaged to, yay!!) who got into the workout "insanity". have you hear of it? possibly not...its along the same lines at P90X (which i know youve hear of!) well, in a bid to get in crazy/awesome/amazing shape, she burned the cds of it for me. i did it for the first time last night. it was a pretty long day so i didnt do it until after dinner, around 9:30pm. i did it for 10 minutes (just wanted to try it out, but not get too crazy before bed) and LOVED IT! its crazy hard...the name "insanity" fits.

its going to be a bit awkward attempting this in my teeny room but ill figure it out. i may try and squeeze a bit of it in the AM and some at night. now that i am getting over my horribly back infection i have decided to be much more selfish with my time. if i want to eat a good dinner or go to bed early or go run, i will do it. i can only give so much of myself before i burn out so i now take extra care with my own feelings and time.

ive had a few mild internal freak outs about the marathon. i know its 6 months away. i know i will be able to do it. ok no i dont, hence the mild panicked thoughts. 26.2 miles?! sometimes i think to myself "wtf!??!" a marathon is kind of a fucking big deal. and a massive mental undertaking. holy balls, what am i doing?!

so yea, those are my thoughts. haha i cant wait until im about a month away. thats going to be fun :)

LOOK! Its me!!

OK, lets face it. This will be me!

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 :)
