May Resolutions

 

Hello May.

Welcome to my life. I have been waiting a long time for you come around with your warm days and cool evenings, blooming flowers, and subtle reminders that life is better spent under the shade of trees than just about anywhere else.

May is probably one of my favorite times of year, it’s not quite […]

A Gentle Reminder

There are certain things that you should not do if you want to win friends and influence people, or not piss off your neighbors. One of those things is plyometric aerobics at 11pm. Sadly, my schedule has been so hectic these days that late night exercise is sometimes the only opportunity I have for getting […]

Homemade Lemon Protein Bars

Here’s the thing about exercise: You need to eat after you do it.

I know this sounds all sorts of counterintuitive to people that are exercising to lose weight, “Err, I just burned a whole bunch of calories, why can’t I revel in that glory for a bit?”

Because there’s a window of about an hour after […]

Back to Brooklyn, Back to Basics

My little hometown vacation is over, and I appear to be back to my city girl ways. I have to admit that I’m a bit set in my eating and exercising habits, and like most vacations that seems to fall by the wayside when I’m back home for extended periods of time. The first thing […]

July Resolutions

 

Can we consider all of June null and consider July a Mulligan month?

June was rough for me in regard to managing expectations: personal and professional. I had a big bump in my workload, and because it’s summer my social life seemed to be a wee bit more demanding than usual. This month […]

Old dog, same old tricks

I was pretty decent at my resolution to eat frequent small meals toward the beginning of the month, but as soon as I landed myself back in a cubicle I reverted right back to my three-meal-a-day ways.

There are two camps on the snacking philosophy: one says that small frequent meals keeps your metabolism firing up, […]

Part of a complete breakfast dinner

Cheerios and wine. There are certain perks to being an adult, and my dinner tonight is example enough in my book. Don’t worry mom, nothing’s wrong, I’m just lazy.

This week was brutal! I am determined to make full-time freelancing my lifestyle, but I’m definitely experiencing a learning curve. My problem, […]

Quitting feels good

I quit.
It took a lot of thought introspection, but I contacted the company that I had signed on to be a spokesperson for, and I quit.  When I took the job in June I was really excited from a professional standpoint–this is a legit modelling/commercial/print campaign.  But, it was for a product I didn’t necessarily […]

Rhinoceri in Tiaras

I literally sat up typing and retyping my Wednesday blog for a couple of hours…sometimes a day is just a day.  I didn’t have any major life epiphanies, or monumental changes to report.  Instead I did normal things like go to work, exercise, eat a lot of fish, and watch Toddlers & Tiaras.
Okay, I’m not […]
