30 Day Challenge

by admin on July 23, 2014


It’s been busy. God, I can’t even believe it’s almost August. I’m almost to the end of the summer semester. Finals are in mid-August. Then, I have only one semester to go! It’s been a lot of work this past year and I can’t wait to be finished. It’ll be sweet to be a Fordham Alum.

Outside of school and work, I’m in the middle of a 30 day challenge. It’s not exactly a “paleo” challenge per se. It’s more of my own challenge. It’s a challenge to…

  1. Eat healthy. Cook more. Pretty paleo.
  2.  Save money. Get in the subway… no cab.
  3. No drinking for 30 days.
  4. CrossFit. Be consistent.
  5. Basics… Early to bed. Early to rise.
  6. Read more.
  7. Make a plan and stick to it.
  8. Develop better habits.
  9. Think positively. Glass is half full. Live and let God.
  10. Take care of myself and put faith and trust in the process. Everything will work out how it’s supposed to.

I thought it would be tough. But, I feel really good.

I started a new CrossFit gym this past week. Crossfit NYC: The Black Box has two locations one in Chelsea and on the UWS. They offer a ton of class levels and times which is great. And, they also offer flexible membership options. I’m pre-registered for the brand new Reebok gym opening in Union Square this September. So, this was a great opportunity to work on getting back in shape and gear up for the new gym.


Last night’s workout was tough. We focused on back squats, burpees, and wall balls. I’ve been running so I feel fairly fit but when you do workouts that you’re not used to…it feels like you’re the most unfit person on the planet. Let’s just say I’m very sore today.

Tonight, I’m going to stretch and rest. And, I’ll be trying to make some cauliflower mashed potatoes with filet mignon.

Happy Wednesday!

Dirty Thirty Birthday and End of Second Semester

April 15, 2014

So, I hit the dirty thirtieth birthday.   I went kicking and screaming but alas… here we are. It’s been a busy few weeks. I had finals the week/weekend of my actual birthday so it was a stressful time (more grays to be colored… thanks very much).  I am pleased to announce, however, that my second […]

CF 212

March 25, 2014

Yesterday, I had my first workout at Crossfit 212.  There are two gyms – 281 Broadway and 84 Franklin.  They have a lot of new equipment.  The gym is smaller than my old box but it may help in having more individualized attention.  I was happy that most of my form was still there on […]
