The Best Things In The World

Date: April 13, 2015 at 5:19 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 45

Hi! I had some serious writer’s block last week. And the week before that. I was so sad about the 40 Days program ending. I came out of the program feeling so strong and so much better at yoga. Then […]

In 10 Years

Date: January 9, 2013 at 9:31 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 52

If you’d asked me 10 years ago, “Hey, Alison (no one called me Ali then), where do you see yourself in 10 years?” I could have answered you pretty matter-of-factly. “I’ll be living in New York City, working as an […]

Mixed Emotions

Date: September 21, 2012 at 8:29 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 42

Since leaving the hospital three weeks ago, life has been good. Really good. Work is total madness. I spent the past three days in L.A. attending the finale taping for “So You Think You Can Dance” and doing a photo […]

Work, Run, Eat, Repeat...And Ride

Date: July 30, 2012 at 9:24 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 33

When I was trying to come up with a pithy title for this blog, I did some “inspirational research.” Basically, I looked up a ton of other blogs to see what their clever titles were, hoping something brilliant would pop […]

No News Is Great News

Date: July 25, 2012 at 9:34 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 49

I wasn’t going to blog today. Again. Not long ago, I made a promise that if I had nothing to say, I’d keep my mouth shut. Or I’d stop my fingers from typing. Whatever. But then I realized: It’s kind […]

On Being Full-Out

Date: March 30, 2012 at 9:14 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44

Today we are going to talk about being “full-out,” which is not to be confused with “Full House.” Because in real life, going full-out means being balls-to-the-wall and, as my spin instructor this morning said, “not bullshitting it.” (I wanted […]

FITNESS Mind, Body & Spirit Games Recap

Date: September 17, 2011 at 2:13 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 31

Three years ago I toed the start line at my very first running race: the FITNESS Mind, Body & Spirit Games 4-miler in Central Park. I had just started running and hardly considered myself “a runner.” I was super nervous, […]

Strong Is Sexy

Date: September 13, 2011 at 8:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 85

Last night I took a Chisel class at the gym. I hadn’t been to class — or done any quality strength training — for a few weeks. I was convinced all my hard-earned strength would be lost and I envisioned […]

Noteworthy Numbers

Date: September 9, 2011 at 8:12 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 43

I’ve got numbers on the brain today. For example, 10:30. That’s what time I left the office last night. I wasn’t thrilled, but I can’t complain too much. My job rarely requires me to stay at the office past 5:30ish, […]

Thankful Things Thursday: New Sneakers, Thick Thighs & I Really Love Food

Date: August 25, 2011 at 8:32 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 35

Hello. Today is Thursday. This week has been speedy. Probably because I was gallivanting around Fire Island on Monday and Tuesday instead of working. My feet are covered in bug bites. I’m not very excited about that. They’re itchy and […]
