fresh new day!

i am happy to report that our 2 day juice cleanse is over!! hilariously, out of the 5 juices we were allotted each day i drank about 3. maybe 3.5 i padded my days calories with cucumbers and celery. dont be jealous! the pb&j and orange juice flavored options were phenomenal! the blueberry was decent but i hit the gym between when i started it and when i went to finish it and by the time i did get back to it it was room temperature and just didnt taste as good. the beet juice and green juices were foul. im a super healthy person, love salads, actually do like beets and still thought these were dreadful. drank a few sips of each but that was pretty much it. ugh.

we didnt do the cleanse for long enough to realllllllly analyze it, but i am happy to report i think it was a fun challenge. i missed the act of chewing food more than food itself if that makes sense. the first day i felt fuzzy, high almost. second say i felt good, very light. stomach growled a bit but drinking a lot of water and a juice at key times helped that. today, the first day we are back to normal, has felt the worst. i feel tired and have a headache. ive been making a huge point to snack a bunch between meals today to keep my body humming along....a pretzel, nuts, an apple, carrots and celery. while im certainly keeping plenty nourished i am tired! granted, i didnt work out this morning and i do find that i feel really tired when i dont break a sweat. ive been working out A LOT lately, and being on a juice cleanse i did feel like resting and taking one day off was necessary.

all in all, a great experience. havent weighed myself as of yet, but might tonight. happy wednesday!!

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 :)




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 travel...im 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…

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…
