Formal Announcement: On Monday, June 3rd I will be temporarily leaving my amazing home in Hermosa Beach (I will be back July 9th) and moving to tFCCBIG Apple (see also: a land full of aggressive walkers, big slices of pizza, suits and ties).

On the Road

Posted by on May 21, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Whether traveling for work or pleasure I cannot pass up a chance to squeeze in a sweat, but when a gym does not even have mats you know there is something seriously wrong. Why is it that hotel gyms also trap you with no windows? It is as if they want to challenge you by making you feel boxed in… the walls closing in and pushing you right back to your room (or the bar!). Not a chance buster! WE cannot back down from a challenge to create our own routine in any city or hotel. Do not get frustrated. Make your workout worth it. Give yourself a focus- time frame, muscle group, or distance....

I do not normal bring up others or stories of others in my blog, but tonight feels different. I have had too many friends recently putting themselves out there and not receiving the recognition and love they deserve. First off, dating sucks. No one enjoys the act of dating. It is normally an uncomfortable encounter of stories, interview questions, and mild wit mixed with awkward flirting. But it is not ALL bad. As Bradley Cooper’s character in a Silver Linings Playbook states, “This is what I believe to be true: You have to do everything you can and if you stay positive you have...

Girl Power vs. Damsel

Posted by on Apr 23, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Two phrases that lead females in 2 directions. If I am a tough, strong, straight forward girl I am intimidating. If I like to be catered to, taken out on a date, and sent a nice sweet note then I am in need of saving. Why is it that there is a divide between Girl Power and Damsel in Distress. Disney Princesses cannot even make up their minds. Way to go Mulan, but Cinderella oh you needed Prince Charming to rescue you. I do not even know why this is on my mind except for the fact that I am literally a house divided. I want to be strong and confident and secure. I want to own my confidence and...

Success Taste So Good

Posted by on Apr 4, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

What can you do in 90 days? I have pushed myself in every which way these last 90 days. I wrote a blog on the first week of 2013 explaining my upcoming health and fitness goals. What really happened was a complete over-haul of my life. In 90 days I have gone through a strict diet, limited treats, new workouts, physical injuries, emotional reflection, heart ache, and self growth. Friends and family kept asking why? Why limit myself and push my body physically? Why not! This is the time. While I soul search (and job hunt). This is the first time that all I have to think about is myself. I get...

Treat Yourself

Posted by on Feb 8, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

One month later and my new fitness routine is a hit! But more importantly my cheat meals are so WORTHY! Let’s prepare for this month. February has a handful of food obsessed holidays. Superbowl, Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and even Purim (hello hamentashen!) There is no use saying ‘no’ to every indulgence, but there is such a thing as ‘will power.’ I plan my cheat meals surrounding events or outings so I can indulge (politely) and with friends. This Valentine’s Day also known as “All the Single Ladies” Night, I have chosen which dessert...
