I Worked Out Every Day for a Month—Here’s What Happened

When it comes to fitness, I’m hardly a sofa sloth. As a reformed gym-phobe, I’ve found that keeping active has become an important part of my routine, helping me find structure, feel good about myself, and take care of my mental health. Although everyone’s exercise needs are different, I find that squeezing in three to five sessions a week — combining yoga with weight training and cardio — is just about manageable. But in spite of my well-meaning habits, I’d recently seen a number of articles advocating working...

I Let My Friend Take Over My Dating Profile—Here’s What Happened Next

Do you ever feel like you’re looking for all the right things in all the wrong places? That’s how I feel about love. I’m 32, and I’m single. Maybe you saw my article here about what that feels like for me — one part amazing, one part (maybe more) really f*&*ing hard. On the amazing side, there’s total freedom.

I Threw Out My TV—Here’s What Happened Next

It was never supposed to go as far as it did. All I wanted was to watch a little TV while eating my lunch. Next thing I knew, I’d watched four hours of a bad reality show and dragged my fiancé down with me. It was the last day of vacation before going back to work in the New Year. We spent half of it in bed watching a whole season of a show whose name I can’t even remember now. The next morning we went...
