Resolutions 2015

The glorious year that was 2014 has come to an end. I would mark it as a mostly positive year, but it was pretty hectic across the board - new job, new friends, dating, etc. The only constant was change itself. But here are my resolutions from last year and my feedback on each of them:

  1. Do something other than wine-curls for exercise.
    1. Join Crossfit – Go 2 times/week. Aiming for toned body. Not She-Beast. Sure, I joined Crossfit... for like, two weeks. I didn't care for this particular box so I didn't stick with it. Crossfit is effective, but you have to find the right box for you. However, about two-ish months ago, I joined a gym and hired a personal trainer. I can officially say I'm hooked. 
    2. Do something else 2/week. Rollerblade? Run? Just something. I bought a bicycle, and bike all the time. I typically bike to and from my gym (1.5 miles each way).
    3. Eat less shit.
      1. I suppose I can afford to drink more water and less wine/martinis. But I will not be eliminating those! I kicked ass at this one. I guzzle so many waters/La Croix's - it's insane.
      2. Refrain from consuming SO many processed foods. My weakness lies in the form of all variations of frozen pizza, and popsicles. This will be hard. I cut a lot of that stuff out. Every now and then I'll grab a bag of gummie bears, and I still indulge in Cool Whip. But overall, I've cleaned up my diet.
      3. Build She-Chirps.
        1. At least two blog posts per week. A girl can dream, right? 
        2. Utilize social media: Instagram, Facebook, Google+, Twitter. Yes, yes, no, no. 
        3. Don’t Stop. Still typing, aren't I?

Not too shabby! Here are my 2015 resolutions:


  1. Hit the gym at least 4 times per week.
  2. Deadlift 150lbs.
  3. Decrease body fat %.


  1. Further clean up my diet - get rid of all the occasional junk, it's just not worth it.
  2. No more Cool Whip. Yes, you read that correctly. I am completely addicted to my ice-cream substitute. Again, it's just not worth it.
  3. Attempt 2-3 cheat meals per week. One for "ritual dinner" (Friday dinner with the girls), and one (or two) for whatever else I feel like.


  1. Don't stop.
  2. Continue with Ig and Facebook. Remember Google+.


  1. Continue to refuse to be out-hustled.
  2. Push the envelope (as far as marketing ideas go).

Bring it, 2015!


Dana Podgurski

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
