Perfect 10 Blog: 9 Awesome Things + 1 Giveaway

I never ever script my vlogs, but I had SO MUCH stuff to talk about this week that I had to write it down. I still managed to forget one thing (that I came up with in the shower), but I’ll save that for next week. It’s a fun one. I’m also totally guilty of not prepping enough for my vlogs… like, for instance, wearing makeup or real clothes. This week, I jumped out of the shower, threw my hair in a bun, and hijacked my husband’s office for a quick Photobooth session on his iMac. I’m one fitness YouTuber who does NOT do full hair & makeup before a video… who has that kind of time?!

3. I’m posting my Testimonial of the Week! Send me yours and I may read it in one of my videos!!

Here’s the full testimonial from Lindsey:

I just wanted to take a few minutes and say thank you for your advice!! It meant the world to me!! I wanted to share this with you I hope you don’t mind. I signed up over a month ago for my first 5k ever!!! Well this morning I got up too early (not a morning person) to go do my 5K and I was thinking about when I started this journey not too long ago and look where I am and what I’m doing!! I walk at my local park which is pretty flat.. today’s 5k was all hills. I thought about quitting once… and I remembered your last video and stopped and said how awesome am I!!!! Look what I’m doing!! I finished the race. I did a walk/jog. My normal time for a 3.1 is 56 minutes. At first it was over an hour. But today – hills and all – I finished in under 57 mins!!! Thanks for doing your videos and helping to motivate and educate people….without you I would be 23 pounds heavier, because as of last week that’s how much I have lost so far!! Thanks again!

How awesome is she?!

7. I went to a party for MPG Sport in NYC this week and it was incredibly cool. Their fitness line is GORGEOUS and so chic! I met up with my pals Sarah Dussault (@DietSarah on Twitter) and Bianca Jade (@mizzFITnyc on twitter) to check out the goods and chat up the MPG peeps. Everyone there was so great and they’re excited to work with me and sponsor a giveaway for all of you… coming soon!! Thank you to my bestie and yoga rockstar, Yulady, for being my super awesome date for the evening.
