Dirty Rebel Radio: Let’s Be Friends Friday

In less than 24 hours, I’m going to be putting on some get-filthy clothes and heading out to the Rebel Race with the Husband and Trainer Daryl. Please pray for me. In fact, concentrate sending all of your Bex-stay-strong energy in the area of Manchester, New Jersey, right around 10am EST. Yeah, I think that will definitely help me not to die.

At this point, I just have to rely on the fact that Daryl has trained us well, and in the interest of not losing two clients to a disgusting muddy death, he gave us all the tools we need to come out of this alive. We shall see.

If I do manage to get through this with all my body parts intact, please consider joining me on the Bex Life Race Team for the Philadelphia Color Run on July 8. I’m running with my whole clan (minus Baby Summer who happens to suck at running) and would love for you to come out for a fun meetup/run with us! I’m making special shirts for the event, so maybe I’ll hook you up with one ;)

In other news…

The Fitterati awards are OVER, so you don’t have to hear me pleading for votes anymore. Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit Fitness Magazine and vote for me. I know it was a little bit of a pain-in-the-heiny, so I’m thrilled that so many of you did it.

I ended up finishing second in my category behind my pal, Cassey Ho – Blogilates.com, and I couldn’t have picked a better person to lose it to. She has a ginormous fan-base, so I think my showing was pretty impressive – all because of my Bexy Peeps – Nation – Army – Lifers (I promise we’ll figure it out soon).

In other I’m-so-amped-I-can’t-stand-it news…

I have a very cool link to share with you today. You can listen to my very first radio interview for FunandFit.org by checking out their site here. It’s broadcast on Women’s Radio and you can listen to it anytime. I would totally appreciate you sharing the link on facebook and twitter (follow me @GirlRucki, weeeeee!). I’ve only been interviewed live once before, so I was super nervous. But I really like the way it turned out. Let me know what you think!

Oh, oh, oh – this is a good one!! I’m putting together a SUPER IMPORTANT video for a website called indiegogo.com. I’ve been asked as a YouTube NextUp Creator to launch a fundraising project linked to my site. I’ll tell you all about it in the video coming out next week, but it’s basically a proposal to build a real-life sustainable-living classroom on my property where I can shoot videos about growing your own food and reducing your carbon footprint at home. Among other projects, I want to build a new greenhouse and enlarge the chickens’ space. I’ll invite elementary classrooms into my garden and show them how easy it is to live green.

The urban farming part of BexLife.com is definitely getting ramped up in the coming months. I can’t wait to start my new garden, throw some new baby chicks into the mix, and start sharing my new column that I’m writing for Urban Farmer Magazine. Please like them on facebook to be alerted when the first issue comes out in May.

I’m trying to spread as much of my Bexy love all over the internet, so you’ll see me popping up all over the place this year. I have to admit that I’m feeling spread a little thin (and even succumbed to some stress-eating over the past week… too much macaroni & cheese – YUM, I mean, UH-OH), so I’m going to make a real effort to start treating myself better.

The first step is going to bed ON TIME and getting some good sleep. Right now, Baby Summer is taking over the whole bed and there’s barely room for Justin or me. We’re upgrading to a king-size bed for the new house, but until then we’re suffering through the night.

I’m also trying to upgrade my terrible pillow situation by testing out a new buckwheat pillow from QBedding. I’m going to use it all week and let you know how it goes next Friday. The packaging listed some pretty amazing claims, so we’ll see how that goes.

That’s it! No more begging for votes and no long list of “PS” messages. Just watch this week’s video for more details on my week and some even more fun future projects (and some GoPro video shot by Summer on BabyCam). Continue to rock out with your crazy inspirational comments and messages. I love you!! xo
