Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Can you believe there are only two weeks left in the year? Where did all the time go? I have been thinking about all of the events that happened in my life in 2014 and I am grateful to embark on a new year with so many new possibilities. So what I am I excited about this week? Check out just a few things that are making me happy right now.

  • Book Vs Movie Podcast: If there is someone I am grateful for this year it is Margo Porras of She’s Nacho Mama’s Blog as she had the guts to try and start a podcast with me on a moment’s notice. Well “Book vs. Movie” is now going to a new home and we are going to be producing it ourselves (with a big amount of help from with a new logo, website—the whole kit and caboodle. Here is our first properly edited episode, coming up in January (a few short weeks away!) we will begin our first episode of the New Year talking about Joe Klein’s Primary Colors which was turned into a movie in 1998 and directed by Mike Nichols whom we sadly lost this past year. Get ready to get political!

  • Tria Hair Removal System: I will give my full review in two weeks but I so far really like my Tria hair Removal System which is showing signs of working well for me. The places where I had some funky hair issues (including my upper lip—embarrassing!) It is very convenient and does hurt at all. Do any of you remember that horrible product Nads? Where your put that goop on your arms and it hurt like hell? Not true here but as I said I am giving a full review in two weeks.) NOTE: Tria sent me the product for free but the review and opinions are my own.


  • Death Wish Coffee! Thanks to my new Fitbloggin friend (and Secret Santa!) I have a pound of Death Wish coffee to greet me every morning. This is supposed to be the “world’s strongest coffee” and my 7 am spin class tomorrow will find out if this is truly the case. (Thanks again Danielle!)
  • Space Cadets in The Classroom: I am asking my fellow instructors out there—do you have a space cadet in your classroom. Someone who just zones out and barely pays attention to anything happening in the room? My instinct is to just leave them alone. Have you ever dealt with this issue? Sometimes fellow students remark about it but I have never confronted the person about it. Is that the best thing to do? Let me know what you think!
  • My Newest Giveaway—A Yoga Extravaganza! If you ready to start practicing yoga but not sure how to begin then have I got the giveaway for you! The Element Beginner Yoga Kit which includes three yoga DVDs, a set of yoga blocks and a yoga strap can be yours. But you MUST follow the rules in order to win! (Continental U.S. Only!) Read below for the details.

Now on to this week’s Vlog and giveaway details!
