I’m Alive…Just Busy Living!

HI GUYS! I just wanted to let you know that I AM ALIVE. I have been living life at 80,000 MPH and though it’s NOT what I’m used to, it’s all been worth it to live what have truly been some of the¬†best days of my life. And it’s not over yet! I’m about to head out to an amazing vegetarian/vegan restaurant with my best blend Heather called Garden Grille, and am staying over at her house tonight to unwind, work on getting my pics ready to share with you guys, and get much needed sleep!

On Wednesday, I attended the FITNESS Magazine Blogger Meet & Tweet. I got to hear some great bloggers speak, and meet the faces behind some blogs that I have been reading for as long as three years. SURREAL! I also got the chance to try so many fantastic new products from brands like Oakley, Reebok, and many more. I capped the day off with one of the best meals of my life at Pure Food & Wine.

Then today, I attended #RBKFITBLOG, an event for bloggers held at Reebok World HQ in Canton, MA. We learned about their latest and greatest products and workouts, including their partner Crossfit (yes, I tried the legendary Crossfit, and I am ALIVE!)

Heather and I are running to dinner. I can’t wait to give you guys amazing posts that share my adventures with you. In the mean time though, head over to my Twitter and check out the zillions of tweets I’ve been putting out over the past few days. MANY include pictures, as well as fascinating fitness and blogging tips and secrets! You can also see what other bloggers have been saying about the last few days by searching the hashtags #fitblognyc and #RBKFITBLOG.

What part of my adventures are you most excited to hear about?! How much do you already know about Reebok and/or FITNESS Magazine?


First of all, I’d appreciate it if you would take a chance to check out my About page, which I updated yesterday. I added a little more about my relationship with food/working out there, and hope you like reading an updated version of my story!

Yesterday was the first rest day I’ve had in awhile where I didn’t feel antsy and cranky. Instead I felt, well, rested. I consider this an accomplishment! I enjoyed my day off and am ready to get back into it today. I plan to sweat it out later with some Zumba or Spin – we’ll see which!

I honestly don’t have much time for posting today, which is a bummer because I wanted to recap a fun and delicious night out I had on Monday. It will have to wait though, hence this post’s title (get your mind out of the gutter). For now, please enjoy (?) a couple of photos I’ve accumulated over the last few days. This is turning into my MO!

Sunday's dinner

Sunday nights seem to be protein parties in my house. My dad inevitably ends up grilling three different kinds of meat, and we also happened to have leftover black beans from Saturday night. I had a turkey burger patty, half of a turkey sausage, and a piece of grilled chicken, all dipped in spicy yellow mustard. This was VERY filling! I relieved my dad of his potato skin and filled it with Mariah’s Chow Chow Relish.

Potato skins = my taco shell substitutes. Unless I’m eating real tacos, that is. Then no substitute will do.

Monday’s breakfast obviously, judging by its size, left me eating lunch at 10:30am. Oh well! I can move meals around and eat at my desk at work, so it’s all good.

Banana and Dark Chocolate Dreams PB

Eh, that definitely looks kind of gross.

Finally, I wanted to give a shout-out to the Elvis Duran Show (any fans out there?) and suggest that you head on over to their web store and pick up a HELLO LADY shirt. ALL profits will be donated to Susan G. Komen, and there’s still enough time in October to promote breast cancer awareness (of course, this can be done anytime). If you listen to the show you know and probably love HELLO LADY, and if not, I recommend you get on IHeartRadio and listen to Elvis Duran’s show because it is HILARIOUS and accompanies me to work every single morning.

That’s all I’ve got for today, folks.

Do you listen to the Elvis Duran Show?

Do you ever eat a breakfast that’s too small and end up eating a ridiculously early lunch?
