Keeping with the spirit of adventure (Warrior Dash, here I come)

As you may recall, I decided 2012 is officially my year to say yes to new things. The last time I checked in, I cited hot yoga (which I began in December, so I guess that’s not officially 2012, but it’s still new to me), rock climbing, working out at 6 a.m. (boot camp class), Zumba (which…

Say yes, 2012 (hot yoga, pink hair, rock climbing)

So, it’s almost February, and I’ve finally decided on my New Year’s resolution. And I want you to do it with me. More about that at the end, but be ready, my friends. I had a little bit of an idea about what I wanted it to be in my head, and I’ve been kind…

Nothing good ever happens after midnight

My mom used to say that all the time. I completely disagree. In fact, plenty of good happens after midnight: – The best parties don’t even start until then. – The likelihood you’ll get dinner and a show at an all-night diner certainly increases (I’m thinking of a specific instance that involved Waffle House and someone…

The Great Coffee Disaster of 2011

  This post is a little bit different, and I want to get your opinion on it. A couple of days ago, I stumbled across a web site that will pay you via paypal to write reviews. Initially I wasn’t very interested, but then I realized that I could review pretty much any product. So…

More. More. More.

“I want to dye my hair blonde and cut it short.” “I want to dye my hair red and grow it long.” “I want to dye my hair pink. Who cares the length at that color?” — “I think I’d like to try yoga. Just a few classes. Only a few dollars.” “I want more yoga more…

It’s all relative.

About a week and a half ago, I decided to attend a new yoga class at the studio I’ve been attending. This class was different for two reasons: it has been called the most difficult yoga class the studio offers, and Stacey was unable to make it so I would be attempting the new challenge alone.…

I suck at that.

How many times do we say that about things that we just haven’t given ourselves a chance to conquer? If you’ve read this blog at any length, you probably know I love exercising. I love running. I love a good circuit training workout or spin class or personal training session. But what do I not…

Trim that ugly tree with tradition

“I miss Mia,” Jenny confided to me the other night. “I was just thinking about her crazy Christmas trees.” My sister and I had a good laugh over that one, and we decided to file it into another of those “Mia stories” categories that just have to be shared with you. So, in the spirit…
