Would your New Year resolutions from years past smack you for betraying them? Mine would. It's easier said than done to say you're going to make major changes in your life. This year I'm redeeming myself with my favorite Fit Trends for 2013. The best way to stick to your resolutions is to find the best glue. So let's get sticky! Check out these trends and TRY ONE!
Resolutions I've Failed
Oh man, I'm embarrassed to even start this list but here goes...
Get to bed earlier. Sleep 6-7 hours a night. (I don't think I ever got more than 4-5 in 2012)
Learn to forgive more. (This is hard esp when you've been really hurt! I tend to hold grudges.)
Eat healthier than ever. Use my new magic bullet. (Yeah, that thing never came out of the box.)
Make sure to find 20-30 minutes to workout on busy days when my normal intense workouts aren't an option. (...nope)
Squash my fears about not measuring up to the lifestyle my friends and family have (y'know, the...

Why give the gift of Fitness & Wellness this holiday season?
Because December is one of the best times to get inspired and motivated for better health. First of all, January is right around the corner along with all your resolutions that you may or may not make until the very last minute. 2nd, December marks the month of persuasion. Convince someone you love (or just like a lot) to feel better, look better and MOVE MORE by forcing them to unwrap a gift that will jump start their journey. They won't complain as long as it's stylish.
Check out the fit gifts I featured on CBS's "Live From The Couch" show in the video above. I love taking fitness on television, including all the amazing fit companies whose products I'm so in love with. I usually don't get too nervous in front of the camera but CBS's Live From The Couch show is craaaaazy! Lotsa cameras, lotsa lights and lotsa of hurried ACTION!
But talking about fitness trends is what I do best. It gives me...
Mayor Bloomberg caved and canceled the ING NYC Marathon. I won't lie, I was upset. After being evacuated and homeless for over a week because of Hurricane Sandy's hit, the marathon was the 1 thing I looked forward to.
That's me and my boyfriend on the Metro North Train escaping Manhattan to find a warm and safe place to stay.
But sometimes you have to accept the things you cannot change in order to summon the courage to change the things you can. My story begins with the outfit I did not get to wear for the marathon that never happened.
I had planned on dressing colorfully in Lorna Jane running apparel. I tested every piece of apparel during practice runs to make sure I'd be comfortable and temperature appropriate. What you don't see is the Vaseline I had planned on lube-ing my feet with, the Swiftwick Pulse Zero socks that I swear by even though they're pricey, and the ibungee speed laces (30") that I will now never run without. Oddly, I discovered that...
Heard the controversy over the ING NYC Marathon? Non-running New Yorkers are up in arms about it. They're saying resources are being misused for "entertainment's sake"...that a marathon during survival mode is unnecessary and disrespectful. The NY Post is so anti-marathon they won't cover any of the amazing runner stories or charities tied to the race. Instead, the Post is bad-mouthing it.
People are PISSED...and I don't blame them. But I still don't think the marathon should be canceled. 40,000+ runners from all over the world including myself are laced up and ready to go. I believe the show must go on! Here's why...
1. Because it sends out a message to the rest of the country and the world that New York City will survive, rebuild and be stronger than ever.
It's an attitude...a state of mind...A GOAL.
2. Because it's freakin' positive! The race will inject our city with good spirit and solidarity.
3. Because exercise relieves stress and makes the...
