Remember When I Said…

My day was made when I got a Heytell from Jamie while at work. “Heeeyyyy… is it warm enough to run outside?” Reply: pull out iPhone ask Siri what the weather’s like because you miss her voice Heytell Jamie back and say “HECK YES IT IS.” Sometimes I think Jamie and I have some brain […]

My favorite coworker (yeah, you’re my favorite, Brian.. congrats) sent met this e-mail. To ensure I don’t hurt anybody this week (A.K.A. the craziest, most obnoxious work week of the year for me), I’ll just leave you with these today:   Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard when he lives in the jungle without a […]


Friday Stuff

It’s finally here. So here’s some random Friday stuff. 1. This girl has started PetSmart Pet Training. “But what about that boot camp she went to with her breeder as a 6 month old puppy,” you ask? Well, that training juuust isn’t as effective as me training her. So we’re learning to act like a […]


For as long as I can remember, I have been a big magazine junkie. Fully immersing myself in lifestyle, fashion, fitness, and running magazines has always always been part of my “me” time, and it has armed me with a myriad of tips, tricks, facts, and information. I love it all. I can’t get enough. […]


I love JennaMarbles, as you all know. And I echo most of these sentiments: *Disclaimer: Jenna is known for her profanity. Consider yourself warned. A few notes: 1. I always got yelled at for singing at the dinner table. And at school. And in the general public. It took about 14 years until I finally […]

Dear Lazy Runner Alyssa, If you want to PR in the Shamrock Half Marathon in March, you’re gonna need to step up your training. Love, Motivated Runner Alyssa. P.S. Sorry I haven’t been around much. I don’t know what’s with me lately. Maybe it’s the fact that my gym is so freakin’ HOT right now […]


I Don’t Carry Purses

January 23, 2012 · 59 comments

I only ever wear wristlets. I haven’t used a purse since college, because I end up packing everything I own into the thing. I then have to tote an obnoxious heavy bag around, I can’t find anything, and it’s completely counterproductive. Plus, I’m sure most of you know big purses have been linked to back […]


Did you hear the news? via Meet your (rumored) new Bachelorette. Upside: it won’t be Creepy Courtney and her lack of lips. Downside: I’d be more entertained watching a tumbleweed date 25 men than boring ol’ Emily. (original photo via) Yes, I rooted for Emily in Brad’s season. She’s obviously gorgeous, she had the “poor […]


This has been an exciting week. And ya know what else excited me this week? X-Spin class. Allow me to rewind to a Twitter conversation about the fitness classes being held on the Blend Retreat, where I made my distaste for burpees very clear. I told them I was giving up my tickets if I […]

It contains the right mix of carbs and protein to refuel muscles after a tough workout, repairs and builds muscles, rehydrates and replaces electrolytes, and has 9 essential nutrients. It never ceases to amaze me how few people know these facts. Chocolate milk naturally has […]
