New Year… New Manicure! Getting Philosophical on the Treadmill

Happy New Year! I’m coming to you LIVE from my local gym (seriously).

I barely made it in here today, even with my super New Years Resolve. Come on, you know how it goes… the day can really get away from you! But I digress.

Back to Blogging: I don’t know about you, but I do my best thinking on the treadmill. I was thinking about future blog-post topics when it struck me: my new no-chip mani actually MATCHES my treadmill. Coincidence?? I’m not so sure…

Notice how the subdued silver polish plays up the CYBEX logo. The elements of the manicure and the treadmill both paying homage to a New Years Resolve and a culture with a preoccupation with health, beauty, and sometimes appearance. WOAH: I can feel art school coming back. I better stop now…

The Universe (and/or my ultra-talented guru nail pro/business-owner role model, Annie) might be trying to tell me (or remind me of) something.

Is it: you had one too many Christmas Cookies. You should stay on that T-mill for an extra 20 minutes?

Although, it could just be: these colors are awesome. More awesome than treadmills, though.

But even better, maybe it’s that: sometimes we have to take moments for ourselves, even when were busy.

So besides showing off my new no-chip, I think my point here is this: People get busy. But don’t forget to take a moment for yourself… Be it a manicure, a yoga class, an afternoon with the fam, or a rockin’ workout. It’s important, you guys!

That’s all she wrote! Back to blasting calories for me. And until next time, stay fabulous, my friends!
