work it out

Screen shot 2014-05-10 at 9.52.16 AM

good morning and happy saturday! what are you doing this weekend? for me it’s taking it down a notch. it’s been way too long since i’ve been on a truly healthy regime. seems like with work and friends it’s easy to get caught up in everything but taking care of myself. a bit of food poisoning yesterday woke me up to the glory it is to be in good shape and the hell it is when you’re knocked down for even a short time. the bottom line is that from this day on, if i’m not working, i’m doing something good for myself which includes excercising and eating right. it’s time to grow up and i’m excited for it!

images (2)why is it so easy to fall into partying and late nights? i’m no angel and i know that no good will come of it. i want to start planning for the future. i already know i want it to be filled with health and good times above all else. so it’s time to clean up my act in every area, fill up on knowledge,  classes, excercise and the abundance of good food, fruit and veggies we have in every supermarket. what a blessing!




our own little worlds, our bodies are ours to shape and design. i want to start this summer with a great shape and that means no more blueberry sconces and haagen dazs. i’m letting it all hang out right now but this is a web log, right? why not set the intention and alert the universe! anyway it’s not so hard with a formula, something like this:


i give people with stamina, perseverance and consistency such credit. now i want to be one of them.  i hope i can stay on the path. if you’re doing it, what’s keeping you on the straight and narrow?

results help! can’t wait to get into a bikini again!



i guess i just want to be smart. not be someone who knows better but won’t DO better. i’d like to be strong, not weak, be a mindful eater, not a borg who does and eats things by rote.


i’d love to hear what you’re including in your regimine this spring and what your goals are! let’s do it together! have a great weekend!

taking the edge off


living true

hello all, how’s your week going? if it’s anything like mine, you’re probably super busy with summer and trying to keep it all together.



spending time with my family gave me some introspective/perspective downtime and that’s always good for shaking things up. i’ve been going full force for so many years that it seems i have developed a sharp edge, maybe i’m a little too rushed, maybe even (gasp)! brusque.



i’ve always been a bit of a party/work animal and am starting to realize just how much i take my body for granted, and how very delicate it really is. we’re only water after all!



between the brain waves,



the synapses



nerves and neurons, we’re just little whispers of a thing yet we’re so hard on ourselves in every way!



there’s so much i don’t know about how my own body works. funny to be sort of a stranger in it since it’s right here all day every day!


now that i’m back home i’m going to try to be a bit more conscientious about this little temple that’s my one and only possession that matters; what i put in it physically as well as mentally, by concentrating on what i think about and what i eat and drink.




so here’s to taking care, hope you get a little time to yourself this weekend, i know how much you do and am sending good vibes your way this thursday!

a moveable feast

good morning all, happy wednesday! it’s great to be back stateside and i’m readjusting to my little world. the time change woke me good and early to catch a sunrise and spend some time on the beach playing around and reconnecting with home.

fortunately lots of the stash was waiting when i arrived but my apartment looks like a warehouse of boxes and bubble that’s been transplanted from our paris apartment to miami. truth is the french post office was a great way to ship and i recommend it if you’re sending boxes back when you go. they just can’t be over 50 kilos (whatever that is, it’s a lot) or over 2 meters in size over all). you can get boxes and bubble at bhv in paris. anyway  the phone is already chirping and ringing and the inbox is downright mad but i wanted to say hello and thank you for being there throughout the trip. i didn’t get a chance to comment back  but it was so much fun to have you with me! needless to say i brought stuff for you so send out as tokens, and i have NOT forgotten about the last batch i was supposed to ship either!  it was just that things got crazy. so if you sent me your addy a couple months back and didn’t receive anything yet, you will!

till then it will be unpacking like crazy, i’m sure  the it will look like an episode of hoarders in here soon, but it’s my french feast

the phone is relentless so i have about 30 seconds and wanted to pass along something that has been a fascinating new change. i came home to a boyfriend who cut his long hair, dropped 17 pounds and went from eating a despicable diet to  fresh juicing. it’s not the kind we do at home, it would be impossible to have this array of ingredients and combinations, not to mention it’s cold pressed. (apparently the shiz)!  i fell right into the cult and in two days we’re having these delicious drinks whenever we’re hungry. it’s a thrill to see such a transformation and joie de vivre in him that i couldn’t help but jump on board. we can’t get enough of them, and when we do eat it’s no longer about heavy meals and desserts. so refreshing and an incredible shift for both of us! check out the menu on the link. they ship anywhere in the us.

ok, well duty calls, have a beautiful day!
