I live in New York. I am a comedian, writer and actor. My day job is blogging for VH1.com. I write about the silly things celebrities and pop stars do, so you know...God's work.
You may have seen my writing on many other reputable websites (McSweeney's, The Huffington Post, Hello Giggles, xojane.com, The Hairpin, Splitsider, The FW, etc.). I also write crazy blogs about Game of Thrones, Magneto and Jeff Goldblum.
Life's weird, right?
It has come to my attention that I’m out of shape* and out of all my excess monies.
Here’s how I will fix this:
I will sign up for a 10k at the end of the summer. I can run a 5k hungover and still asleep and I don’t have the time to train for anything over 10k, so yeah.
I will quit drinking diet soda. Sure, there’s no calories, but there’s still, you know, cancer causing, bloat-inducing stuff in it.
I will go back to only eating bagels on weekends and I won’t buy brie cheese or potato chips to snack on at night. I will snack on fruit and pop chips and other healthy things.
I will do more freelance work and cut back on eating/drinking out.
I will foster a healthy sense of self-esteem, because even if I want to improve my life, I have to believe I am worth it to take the steps. And because if my thighs continue to get bigger, I need to own them.
If I do all this, I should prevail.
Follow me to easy summer self-improvement!
*I’ve gained probably five pounds in the last year (I don’t weigh myself), but more importantly, I can’t run as far or as fast as I used to. Strength and endurance are more important to me than my dress size. Also, my thighs are getting bigger and I will admit that does sort of bother me. So, I better do what I can to fix it and there’s a lot of stuff I could do to fix it. So, I’m going to shut up and fix it.
