hi world! im alive! it was a bit touch and go for a few weeks there.
post maxim NYE i got hit with whatever #frankenflubronchitis was floating around!! then my body decided to add sinusitis to it and a fever so it was a bloody good time.

two great things that came from almost dying:
1. no interest in soda whatsoever
2. ive been eating amazing food, really making an effort

when i get sick, and in this case really sick, my body craves fresh fruits and veggies, warm soups and filling salads. it doesnt, however, crave soda, luna bars, endless pretzels or random snacks. im on a personal health mission and aim to eat really good a bit of a snacker by nature but im really amped about this. filling my bod with great stuff has been SO FUN!

flick, katie and i get together at least once a week (usually sunday, and sometimes with others) to cook dinner, catch up and honestly laugh our asses off. there is something about great friends (and in this case best friends) that just makes life better. and cooking together just makes everything in life feel like its fabulous. wine never hurts :)

great friends, great food, great laughs. looking to be the motto for 2013! xoxo

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 :)
