Doing it Wrong Singing Along


All of us New Yorkers woke up to yet another flurry of blizzard-like snow this morning, which made leaving the apartment a daunting thing to contemplate. There's almost nothing I hate more than being forced to wear hideously ugly snow boots. Show me the girl who says she feels hot in snow boots, and I'll show you a liar.

The thought of bikinis, bare legs, and open-toed sandals feels like a far-off fantasy right now--which is probably both good and bad. Good because it means I have at least a couple of months to lose a few of these winter pounds and get back down to my fighting weight (nothing crazy, just a pound or two). I've always been a long-distance runner, preferring to do extended, miles-long sessions on the treadmill without stopping. There's something about pushing myself to go further and faster with each run that brings out the competitive side in me. (Yes, I compete with myself. All the time.)

This morning, though, I decided to try something new: 4 minutes walking, 2 minutes at a fast run. Repeat 5x. And you know what? I worked up a serious sweat, probably burned more fat, wasn't stressed out about beating my previous times/distances, and still managed to get over 3 miles in. I highly recommend.

I'm wearing a Rag & Bone coat (the only thing saving my life in this weather), and Louis Vuitton bag. All photos by Mark Iantosca. xo

  1. I'm in NY too and this weather is killing me! And what's with the weather people calling it a "wintry mix?" What does that even mean? As for the running, I hear it's healthier to alternate your speeds. (It also helps burn way more calories.) Good luck!

  6. Gorgeous coat! I love the color.

    Where do you go running? Just moved to the city and I feel like there's no place to run outside besides Central Park.

  7. Your coat is so great. Looks so warm as well. I find that the jacket is more of a problem than the shoes, because I tend to put a large number of cardigans under and the look like the Michellin Man. I refuse to wear a down jacket if I'm not on a mountain or in a forrest, so that doesn't help!
