Friday Fun!

It’s finally Friday, the beginning of a long weekend or what I like to call “more time to workout” weekend…and drink martinis….and eat…..and drink martinis. Today is off to a decent start already.  Jay Z and JT released the Holy Grail video, my US Magazine will be hot off the press and in my mailbox…

Beastmode for Hotness

In my quest to be "hot" I had to step up my game.  So after work I went right to the beach for a run.  I am in week 6 of C25K (Couch to 5K) and did the intervals.  On top of the walking intervals I also did 5 burpees for a total of 20 and completed…

I Want To Be Hot

My original goal in my journey was to just get healthy.  While this journey will probably continue for the rest of my life I already feel better but what's the next goal? I want to be hot!  You read it right, I want to be hot!  Being hot has different meanings to everyone.  I think…

A Week of Highs and Lows

In the last month I have completed three 5K’s, run four times per week and have a social life outside of work and running.  Summer at the Jersey shore can be exhausting with people going out all the time.  I’m not complaining but I think it finally caught up with me. I took six days off…

Never Giving Up

As we grow older things never seem to get easier.  I long for the carefree days when summer seemed endless while playing with my cousins at the beach or the pool.  It was so much simpler without cell phones, cell phone bills, other bills, ailing family or friends. Even though life throws you road blocks…

This past Saturday my friends and I participated in the Bradley Beach 5K.  It was a lot of fun to do it with other runner friends (they do marathons 'n sh*t) and since they finished like 5 hours before me, were at the finish line to cheer me on.  They ran with me and kept pushing me…

Dating Sucks

Last weekend I had a date that I felt went pretty well.  I’m going to leave the details to myself because turns out I’m friends with his brother (HI JOE!!!) but I will say there weren’t fireworks.  Then I figured you only get so much out of one date and was open to another. The…

Equating Fear with Opportunity

I think I may have committed a crime, but I have gained inspiration for this blog from said crime.  Last week I was at the doctor’s office and picked up the latest issue of Vogue while I was waiting.  One of my favorite actresses was on the cover, Claire Danes, to talk about her role…

My New Habit

I'm definitely the girl on the left! The weekend is here and it appears that I’m starting a new habit:  5K’s and a date! Last weekend I completed my first 5K (as a runner) and on Monday I must have been high because I signed up for this weekend’s Asbury Park 5K.  Not sure what…

What’s Your Motivation Take 2

I began my blog and change back in March and like to look back on how far I have come.  Not only have I evolved physically but the mental part is the biggest change. I wrote What's Your Motivation in the first couple weeks of working out.  I'll admit that the blog is bad but I think about motivation often…
