Lately

Monday, January 14, 2013


After sleeping all day Friday I dragged myself out of bed and went to CrossFit. I was pretty delirious and wasn't able to clean and jerk 85 lbs (only got to 80 which was my previous max). I stayed in that night and went to bed early so I could work out the next morning. Never taking a red-eye again.

Headed to CrossFit on Saturday morning before my 11:00 photo shoot. That's a 1 mile run, 50 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 150 squats each. Upper body is still sore, but I was able to WOD with the pink band again, and it actually felt pretty easy. Finally feeling better!

My 2nd paleo challenge is going well. I've had 2 glasses of red since I started on Jan 2. I had a stomach ache and ate a little popcorn one day, but am otherwise strict paleo and feel great. I have received a number of emails about the paleo dite so I'm working on a post about the paleo. Will have that up soon.

Headed to a photo shoot with Alaina after my workout. Gym bag & camera bag c/o Lo & Sons. Duffle coat c/o Warehouse. Photographed a new collection for Pyar&Co. Styling by Alaina Kaczmarski.

Dinner at Embeya Sat night. The food was amazing! I have never been an adventurous eater but as of summer decided that I should at least try everything. I ate (and loved) octopus, monkfish, and salmon. So, so good. Wore my new coated pants c/o James Jeans. Is it too much to say that these pants will change your life? Ok–i'm overshooting. But they're pretty awesome.

Brunch at Tavern Sunday. Came home, did some work, and watched the Golden Globes with the pup. What was going on with Jodie Foster? And since everyone else will be blogging about all the fashion, I'm going to skip doing that. I love it, but my commentary feels completely unnecessary. And if I'm being really honest, I was editing photos and catching up on email while watching, so I only half-watched the awards.

I installed my new sconces from Euro Style Lighting. Let's hope they don't fall off the wall like my toilet paper holder. I'm usually pretty handy!

Shameless and Californication are back. I'll get around to watching them one of these days.

I am re-reading The Great Gatsby and then moving on to a few classics I've yet to read. Working on those '13 goals.

Did you watch the globes? Shameless? Californication? What did you think?

  1. I've been reading your blog for a while now and haven't commented until now. I absolutely love your home.. so cozy and well styled. I am also a crossfit addict and love hearing about your progress. I've been eating clean and am noticing a big difference. Looking forward to reading your paleo post!

  2. I forgave any ramble or tangent from Jo-Fo as she was the honoree of the night. What I derived from her speech was that she was now comfortable in her own skin, but that didn't mean that she means not to share what is beneath that comfortable skin with the public. She's alluded to being a lesbian and just felt that that's nobody's business but her own and the people she keeps close to her. I'm with her! And if I had her past/present (child star, somewhat of an outcast, stalked by more than one man while she was still very young, and leading what is an "alternative lifestyle"), I'd have one hell of a cryptic, kookie, how-do-you-like-me-now speech too!

  3. I would love to hear more about the Paleo diet! I keep hearing about it but not a lot of people are actually writing about it, they are just saying they are sticking to it. I think I missed the whole Jodie foster part of the globes but I really enjoyed it! I just noticed Shameless on netflix so I think I'm going to take full advantage of it!! Your pup is so cute! =)

  4. I was also confused about Jodie, too. Sounded like some kind of retirement speech! That photo of Buddy is adorable.

  6. Yay for a Paleo Post! I am on Day 1(!) of a 40 Day Challenge with a crossfit friend and I would LOVE to hear your pointers (esp. about giving up lattes) P.S. Love that sweet little Buddyface above.

  7. Whoa, wait."...A 1 mile run, 50 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 150 squats each" ?!! really? I'm proud of myself for doing my squats daily. In my prime I may have done 50 push ups and then was pretty much ready to not lift ANYTHING for the rest of the week. That is absolutely amazing. Perhaps I should look into cross fit!

  8. I am so intrigued by those jeans! They are much edgier than what I normally go for... but I think I want to give them a try. I think I need to re-read The Great Gatsby as well, I want to have the story fresh in my mind before I see the movie. And I would love a paleo post please!
