Dance like no one's watching

via Julie Daly

Last week, a chaotic work schedule, a nagging sore throat, and epic battles with both Comcast AND Sallie Mae (I HATE THEM SO MUCH) made me curl up in a ball every night and wish for January. I didn't want to do anything. And it didn't really help when the button of my jeans busted open on my way to work Thursday. 

I had planned on wallowing in my misery (aka eating my feelings) all weekend long but then I realized I was acting like an old person and forced myself to get dolled up and go out Saturday night. I let my hair down (literally and figuratively), drank one too many vodka tonics, and danced like a maniac -- on a piano bar stage and by myself in a bar corner.

It was probably embarrassing for others but I had the greatest time ever. And when I woke up Sunday morning -- nauseous and with achy quads -- I was happier than I had been all week.

Sometimes you just need to shake things up a bit to feel like yourself again -- and dance like no one's watching.

Happy Monday!


  1. Comcast and Sallie Mae... story of my life! Sometimes you just need to give them a call to "get the record straight". Hope you won the battle, ha-ha.

    I will be attending the Boston Blogger event on Wednesday and noticed that you were on the RSVP list. I thought I would swing by and check out your website in advance. If you see me mingling, please do not hesitate to say hello!

  2. @mscityfit haha we're still battling it out but hopefully I will be the victor!

    I'll definitely say hello! Looking forward to the event and thanks for leaving a note!
