Don’t Be Mad…

This morning, I asked you all for your input. I wanted you to decide my evening workout now that I have extended gym access. Would it be BodyArt, Spinning or Yoga? Your comments were unanimous. “Yoga, yoga, yoga,” you advised. Doing tonight’s Hot Yoga class at the 59th Street Crunch location meant 90 minutes of […]

Cleaning, De-Cluttering and Butt Workouts

Last night, while cleaning/organizing/de-cluttering the apartment, I somehow managed to disconnect the wireless router. ABS was out, so I attempted to fix it myself, to no avail. Anyway, I’m back now! Yesterday was a great start to what I’m hoping will continue to be a very productive week. After work, I hit up the gym, […]

Hey It’s OK…

My favorite magazine column is Glamour‘s “Hey It’s OK.” It’s a cute, one-page column, and senior year of college I literally wallpapered my bedroom with pages that I had ripped out from the magazine. The point of the column is to make you NOT feel guilty about certain thing, like life’s indulgences. Examples, you say? […]

Worth Waking Up For

That’s the view from my 3-mile jaunt this morning along the East River. Not too shabby, huh? The run was pretty, but it wasn’t easy. I am so sore from yesterday’s gym session! I’m not complaining—it’s a good hurt and it means I worked hard—but my legs weren’t up for a speedy run today. So […]

The View from the Back Row

Today flew by! I love days like that, ones that are so productive that when you finally look up from your computer it’s 2 pm. The workday went by in a flash, then came the most stressful part of my day: walking up 7th Avenue from my office to the gym. Though it’s just 10 […]

A Bad Run

Since I became a runner (It still feels weird calling myself a runner, and I obviously love it), I’ve had countless great runs. Many of those great runs have stuck in my mind—the first time my old roommate took me running in Central Park and then we laid on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum […]

Let Christmas Shiiiine!

I’m normally a “Wait until after Thanksgiving has passed to celebrate the holidays” kind of girl. But for the past three years, I’ve enjoyed the wonderful privilege of attending opening night of The Radio City Christmas Spectacular here in NYC. It. Is. Awesome. Opening night always falls in early November, so it gets me into […]

A Long Day, A Great Night

Today seemed to go on forever. I had plenty to do at work, but I think I left my motivation at home. I hate days like that, because they always drag on. I also hit a major slump in the afternoon. I’ll admit it: I ate total crap all day long. Blame it on the […]

10 Reasons Today Was A Great Day

For some reason, at just 9:30 pm, I find myself completely exhausted. In honor of my sleepiness, a short (but sweet) list post! And now… 10 Reasons Today Was A Great Day: I had a good run. My alarm went off at 6 am, as usual, and my first thought was, “Wow, I have no […]
