Did you know that you can use the Peloton App with any Spin Bike? If you’ve been wondering what you need (bike, accessories, equipment) to take full advantage of Peloton Digital classes, you can find all that information and more here.
Do you remember when Sundays were a day to sleep late, meet friends for leisurely Bloody Mary brunches, followed by a yoga class? Well, snap out of it. Those days are long gone.
Moving to the burbs morphed me into a soccer mom, a world I knew nothing about. It should be no surprise that I showed up at the first practice completely unprepared.
Here is the checklist I wish someone had shared with me:
If I took a moment before eating and paused to take a photo of my meal (whether or not I actually shared the image with anyone), would I rethink my food choices? What if I stopped counting every little calorie (and my resulting craziness that ensues) and focused instead on the visual presentation of the food before me? Would I lose weight?
I still remember my first eBay sale. The year was 1999. While visiting my parents, I searched through my childhood closet and emerged with a few random items: a pair of ice skates complete with requisite orange pom-poms, a set of hair rollers last used at a sleepover in middle school, and a packet of handwritten notes I prepared while studying for the New York State bar exam. Those notes sold for a whopping $100.
eBay has changed a lot since then and has only gotten easier to use. I’ve learned a few tricks along the way. This post deals exclusively with selling on eBay using the app, although you may use a computer.
I didn’t always know all of these tips, so even if you have successfully sold on eBay, I hope that you find some new and useful information here.
Tip Number 1: Get the Proper Supplies
Poshmark had been on my radar for some time now. A few weeks ago, I took another look and got “sucked in” and I mean that in a good way.
My handbag collection was a sad bunch, one more beaten up than the other. All the years of sippy cups, snack crumbs, and toy-carrying had taken its toll. It was time.
I downloaded the Poshmark app and initiated my search. In a nutshell, Poshmark is a high-end eBay mainly geared towards women, with more of a Facebook layout. To get started, you create a profile, including your size in dresses, jeans, pants, shoes, and sweaters. The app keeps track of this information and customizes your search results accordingly. (You can also buy children’s and men’s clothes, but I ignored that fact). Looking for Lululemon clothes, Vince Camuto shoes or even a Louis Vitton bag? If you wish it, you can find it; Poshmark claims to save you up to 70 percent off.
Here’s how it went down for me:
As I don’t actually own a Peloton bike, I guess my answer to this question speaks for itself. However, I cannot deny that the Peloton Cycle is an ingenious product, well-designed, and absolutely fills a niche in our busy world, but it is a very sizable investment: the bike itself will run you $1995 plus $250 installation. Add in another $25 to $75 for weights
If you live in the New York metro area like I do, it’s not unusual to travel an hour plus to meet a friend. In fact, these are the friends I describe as “living close.” You find yourself alternating trips to each other’s town or trek to Manhattan for a change of scenery. Even if you offer to meet somewhere in the middle, it inevitably tends to favor one person. And, it’s almost always exhausting.
Just the other day, I was chatting with a local friend of mine and mentioned that I met up with an old friend for dinner, conveniently a twenty-minute drive for each of us. When she wondered how I figured that out, I told her that I use an app. “Of course, you do,” she replied. “You should put that in your blog,” she told me. So here it is. . .
Right before bedtime, I explained the challenge of the day to the kids: that I would talk about someone special to me whom they’ve never met. I didn’t focus on the reason why they had never met him, that he had died almost thirty years ago. I wasn’t in the mood for all the questions that accompany the word “death” and really, this challenge was more about celebrating his life than anything else.
All day long, we tell our kids what to do. At school, teachers impose their expectations on them. How often do we allow our children to teach us about something they love?
If you want to engage my son in conversation, ask him about airplanes. If you want him to talk your ear off for an hour, ask him about his favorite game Airplane! 2.
