When I last obsessed about focused on my “healthy lifestyle initiative” (who am I kidding?  Let’s call a spade a spade: my diet), I was desperately trying to be the perfect bride. Since that time, I got hitched, got a new gig, bought a fixer-upper and started to fix it up, and, as a result, resumed eating my feelings. And I have a LOT of feelings. So now there’s a lot more of me to love than in my wedding photos…

Enter my gal pal and colleague, Dipika, and our brand new initiative: The Great HindJew Pact of 2012. Together Dipika and I are vowing to battle the bulge, to rediscover our skinny jeans and, most importantly, to feel better about ourselves. How? By making smarter food choices (cough cough portion size cough cough) and committing to a torture regular exercise routine.

Why am I telling you this? Well, we read somewhere that “publicly declaring your goals significantly enhances your chance of success.” So yeah, we’re using you. Thanks for your inadvertent assistance!

And if you’d like to join us in The Great HindJew Pact of 2012, we will welcome you with soon-to-be-unflabby arms!

Help! I’m Wearing Jeggings!

That’s right, it’s casual Friday and this “comfort-over-style” gal is in jeggings.  Why?  Well, I wasn’t planning on it, but sometimes we sacrifice more than we intend to for our jobs, and today was one of those days. 

Even Conan pulls off jeggings better than I do! (photo from NY Daily News)

My colleague, Rhymes-With-Cannon, found herself invited to an impromptu client meeting, but felt she was dressed less than appropriately in skinny jeans and UGGs, so she and I took a trip to the ladies room and swapped pants.  I’m sucking-in and looking silly, and she’s rockin’ my almost-mom jeans (and probably feeling silly).

Emerging from the bathroom, we were met with a round of guffaws from our colleagues at MoCo Village, a chorus of “are you two wearing each other’s clothes AGAIN?” and the knowledge that loafers and snowflake socks were never meant to be paired with these trendy bottoms. 

Happy Friday, folks!
