JORD Wood Watches: Review

JORD Wood Watches: Review

I've been doing slightly better about "getting dressed" for work and looking like a grown up sometimes. If you aren't already aware, I work from home, and working from home makes literally rolling out of bed without looking at your face or brushing your hair before you start work super tempting. But there's just something humanizing about getting dressed in real clothes that I know has value. Speaking of real clothes, I'm here today to share with you a fun partnership between BridgetMcGahen.co and JORD Wood Watches that gives you the opportunity to get your own cool, wooden, grown-up watch at a generous discount. Or you can get one for your loved one for Valentine's Day.

It's Okay To Skip Your Workout Sometimes

It's Okay To Skip Your Workout Sometimes

I'm writing this as I'm laying in bed with a fever/cold and a roll of toilet paper next to me (because for some reason, we never own real tissues). I've been sick for 3 days now and had a fever for two of those days. I think there is definitely something going around in Boulder right now because it seems like everyone is at least kind of sick.

Friday No. 2

Friday No. 2

I did a much better job at sticking to my runs this week. On Sunday, I did my long run with some of my running besties. It was a micro spikes snow and slush adventure.

It felt super uncomfortable to carry things in both hands (spikes in one, water in the other), especially when some sidewalks and roads were still icy.

What You Should and Should Not Watch on the Treadmill

What You Should and Should Not Watch on the Treadmill

In the winter months, I run about as many runs on the treadmill as I do outdoors. Honestly, it's more because of the darkness than it is because of the cold. I'd rather run in the cold than run in the dark. It wasn't as big of a deal in NYC because street lights made it not seem so dark, but here in Colorado, dark is dark. If I don't lace up immediately after work, I'll be running in the pitch black darkness. 

All that to say, I've tested my fair share of shows for treadmillability, and here's what I've found, in my opinion, to be the good and the bad.

Using Personality Test Insights in Real Life

Using Personality Test Insights in Real Life

I love personality tests. I used to just love the idea of them, learning things about yourself and whatnot. I guess I used to treat them more like horoscopes -- information that makes you nod and think hmm interesting, but never actually take action or make changes based on it. In the last year or so, I've really been trying to use that information learned to make me into a better person.
