This is fast becoming old news, because I’ve been talking about it for days on my facebook page. And that – right there – was a subtle hint to get your heiny over to Facebook.com/BexLife and like my page! But for those of you who may be having some kind of two-year-long family emergency that has kept you from liking my page, I will re-share my epic-fun-time news here.
This past Wednesday, I went to NYC to do yoga on SADIE NARDINI’S NEW TELEVISION SHOW!! Epic news deserves epic all caps. It all came about pretty randomly. On Sunday, a yogi friend of mine forwarded an email from someone from the show, I immediately responded in my usual crazy-enthusiastic manner, and within a couple hours I was booked. I also got to give a recommendation for another cast member, so I threw my girl Yulady’s name into the mix and she’s doing a bunch of episodes, too!

We’re both wearing tops by lululemon and I’m wearing pants by DAActive.
The whole day was almost too much for words. Sadie was/is beautiful and funny and amazingly talented. I am exhausted after shooting just two shows, and she’s doing it everyday (there will be a total of 65 episodes that will air Monday-Friday on the Veria Living network starting May 14). The experience of shooting on a real television set may be more exciting than actually seeing myself on TV. I’m such a nerd for all the techie behind-the-scenes stuff. Everything was so incredibly cool – the hair & makeup, the cameras, the mics, the crew. I was in YouTube nerd heaven.
I’m going back on May 2 to shoot two more episodes, and I’m super-tight-crossing my fingers that this isn’t the last time I get to work with Sadie. I have a feeling that I can learn A LOT from her – about yoga and about how to be a powerhouse businesswoman. Read more about Rock Your Yoga in her own words here.
There is SO MUCH going on in May, it’s crazy. There are some things I can talk about like a big Fitness Magazine & FitFluential event and a style makeover video with celebrity fitness stylist Bianca Jade from MizzFit.com. Then there’s a few things that I have to keep under wraps for just a little while longer. I’ll be taking you inside some incredible places (think: major iconic fitness brands). I also had a couple extremely encouraging chats with the peeps at Veria about BexLife.com… more on that in the future!
What does this mean for you? Better, more beautifully produced videos and even more giveaways. As Bex Life grows bigger, we all benefit… where would I be without my peeps? Am I kissing up? A little… because I need you to pretty please take care of that little favor I asked of you in the video by taking a second to comment below with your answer.
By the time most of you are reading this, I’ll be in a surgery center waiting for Winona to come out of some minor surgery on her left foot. Please send good vibes to Winona for a safe procedure and a speedy recovery (because her 14-year-old self is getting way too big for me to carry up and down the stairs).
MUSH ALERT: In 2011, I posted on facebook that I would be on TV in 2012, and now it has happened. In fact, every single thing I’ve ever asked from the Universe, I’ve received. Sometimes it takes a lot of time, and it always takes crazy hard work and preparation, but my dreams are coming true one by one. Thoughts become things. Believe it. And if you ask the Universe for something, you can expect the opportunity will come your way. But if you’re not ready to do the work, the opportunity will pass you by without you even noticing. Be ready for greatness. And keep rocking it with the donations for the BexLife.com Sustainable Living Classroom project! I love you!! xo
And on the subject of going green, Happy Earth Day weekend! Check out this amazing video from Burt’s Bees. I just love their products and have a feeling that there may be Burt’s Bees giveaway on BexLife.com soon!
PS – Thank you to my new and dear friend, Bianca, for convincing me that I’m “sitting on a diamond”… those words have made me fearless.
