Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am back to my regular Blog schedule and happy to be reporting back to all of you. (Woo hoo!) This past week has brought so much unexpected fun that I am not sure where to start. So how about I begin with how my week started, shall I?

This past Monday I woke up to find out via e-mail that Danny J. of The Sweaty Betties (I am an ambassador for them) was not only flying into NYC from Dallas that very afternoon on behalf of The Sweaty Betties business but that she was also planning on staying with me! Yikes! After doing a quick, panicked run around my apartment to make sure it was semi-hospitable for my lovely house guest (this was the first time we met in person) I decided to give up some of my long held phobias about having company over (fearing of judgment is a big deal for me) and embrace the unexpected.

Turns out Danny J. is just about as warm, friendly and fun as a person can possibly be. My cats loved her (which is the BIG test) and I was given the rare privilege to show her how to use the NYC subway system which she took to it right away. Goo Danny!  Follow her on Twitter @SweatyBeitties

While Danny was bopping around New York she brought along with her the tall, gorgeous and immeasurably cool Rebekah Borucki of Bex who came over and hung out at my place for a spell Tuesday afternoon. (Honestly—Blogging about health & fitness has given me the opportunity to meet the best people in the world!) You can (and really must) follow on Twitter @BexLife.

On Wednesday Danny & Bex set up a get together of women from all over the East Coast (#NextLevelNYC) who have either belonged to the Sweaty Betties in the past or just completed The Social Academy (which I may just have to try out when it starts up again.)

On an unbelievably perfect day we met in Madison Square Park and let me say these are just some of the coolest women I have met in my life (I keep saying that, don’t I?)

Next Level

After a quick yoga/plank competition in the park a group of us had a mighty fine time at Dos Caminos where I sat with a group of Latina women who explained to me the number of names I have mispronounced over the years (I took French—get off my back!)

  1. Great wrap up! Such a fun night! I LOVED finally meeting/(photo bombing) you and getting to spend some time getting to know each other!! You are such a sweetheart and I look forward to a date together in Brooklyn very soon! Xoxo

  2. That was such a fun evening!!!! I have met some incredible women (including you!) because of my blog.

    Sidenote! I can’t believe the news about Oxygen Magazine….so sad

  3. First – so much to say but HOW FUN WITH YOUR MEET UP!!! Love the older lady! 😉

    Also – I am weird about company too – we don’t have a whole lot & I am not a great cleaner so… 😉

    SO SO SO bummed about Oxygen – the one mag that embraces older women!! BUMMED!!! Fav magazine & have read since early 1990s!!!! I hope they come back. I think the Australia one is OK because they have a different publishing company but not sure…

  4. I wanted to come to the meet up!!!! But I was on call 🙁 NExt time!!! I am sooo sad about Oxygen!!! I have been reading them since the beginning and they are my favorite 🙁 Let me know when there is another meet up!!!!!

  5. Looks like you’ve been having loads of fun! It is unfortunate to learn about the demise of Oxygen Magazine. At any rate, I’m glad you’re back your normal blogging routine!
