No Case of the Mondays!

Do you have a case of the Mondays?? I guess if I worked for the real version of this man in the middle of America with no prospects and nothing to look forward except being harassed about my missing TPS report, I might too-but thankfully I don't and so I am excited every week.

I love Mondays and really don't know why people are so down on them! Do you not have an awesome job that you love like I do? Did you settle for that steady paycheck instead of chasing your dream? Well then, you have no one to blame but yourself. Don't blame poor Monday.

Mondays are great because the week is just beginning and the possibilities are ENDLESS. You never know what could happen by Friday. For example. I am sending my book to Dublin today, so maybe by Friday I will have a publishing deal: that would be fast, but who knows? I am going out a couple nights this week, and so maybe by the end of the week I will have a new guy to hang out with? Maybe a job offer will come on Wed. Maybe someone will send my money. Clooney will finally read my script and buy it outright. I could win the lotto on Wed. Jake Gyllenhaal could fall madly in love with me. The point is, you never know what is going to happen!

I love Mondays because everything is less crowded from the post office to the bank to the suburban shopping malls and even Barnes & Noble. Everything is empty on Monday-thus making it easier for me to work.

In my job, the deadlines are always the weekend and or early Monday, so usually Monday is my rest day. Love it!!

Besides it just sounds happy...Monday. In my head it is yellow and sunny!


  1. LOVE Office Space! A couple weeks ago I told my mom I would be going to Office Space, but what I meant was Office Max.

    Mondays sucked for me when I was in school, but now that I'm out, I definitely don't mind them! And if I do score my dream jobs, like you said, I'll be looking forward to Mondays! Every day, in fact.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

I Love Flying--It's My Only Quiet Time

Drawing by me, Stephanie Olivieri may not be used without permission. THANKS
I have several trips coming up this spring and while I don't like the idea of winter weather while flying I do love flying and here is why.  1. No one can reach me while I'm on a plane so I get that alone time I so desperately need.  2. I get to do nothing and it's okay. It's okay that I'm not at the gym or doing squats at my house, it's okay that I'm not working on anything-I'm on a plane so yay, it's okay to do nothing.  3. It's soothing to my soul to be up in the clouds.  4. You can eat, drink, sleep, and watch TV/movies while getting to your destination.  5. I love to meet other people so while I'm not that annoying chatty seatmate, I do enjoy meeting others. 

AIRPORTS. I love them. I love everything about them. 
I know I'm strange, but I implore you to enjoy your next flight. Think about the fact that you are just there to relax and get to your next city, …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
