Women’s Health Cover Star for October 2014: 

The lovely Kate Hudson is on the cover wearing some of her divine fitness line Fabletics. Kate keeps her insanely toned body in shape with a combination of Pilates and Brazilian Butt Lift DVDs plus she follows an “elimination diet” that excludes red meat but allows tequila. (Nice!)

Kate splits her time with her fiancé Matthew Bellamy of Muse (one of my favorite bands) in London and Los Angeles along with her two boys Ryder & Bing (she loves fun names!)

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Fall is in the air and at this time of year I find myself in the mood for fresh, new ideas. I actually care about this New York Fashion Week (versus the one that takes place in the middle of winter) and my thoughts turn to settling down in the evenings and snuggling with my kitties.

This week I delved into “The Help,” went to a rather usual fashion show and attended the Wanderlust Yoga Festival in Brooklyn. So much to discuss so let’s get to it shall we?

  • Book vs. Movie Episode 5 “The Help”: The power “Margos” plunged ahead with our fifth episode Book vs. Movie podcast and this time we talked about Kathryn Stockett’s novel The Help which was turned into a movie in 2011. So which did we like more? The novel or the film? Check our podcast to find out. In the meantime we are hoping to have them available on Stitcher and iTunes soon (wish us luck!)

Also—please make sure to ‘like” our Facebook page. (Thank you!)

  • Ride the Runway with Reebok: On assignment for Fit Bottomed Girls I went to the Reebok Riding the Runway which was basically a spin class with a fashion show involved. Cyc Fitness created the spin workout that was held at the Reebok Fithub in Union Square. During the ride we were treated to a fashion show which was pretty damn cool and I will send you the link for the full story as soon as it runs.
  • Wanderlust Yoga Festival Brooklyn: This past Saturday my beloved Brooklyn was home to the first yoga/5 k festival and before the rains came upon us—everyone in attendance was treated to a meditation session by yoga superstar Elena Brower. I will tell you more about my meeting with Elena Brower at the press conference (she is so amazing) in the Vlog below. (Story to also be featured on Fit Bottomed Girls.
  • KT Tape Giveaway: My giveaway this week is in honor of my entire runner and tri-athlete friends who might be feeling dinged up and injured right now–KT Tape (Kinesiology Therapeutic Tape) You can win three rolls of the tape by following the rules below. (Continental United States only, thanks!)

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


About KT Tape:

KT TAPE is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and can be used for hundreds of common injuries such as lower back pain, knee pain, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow.  It is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps people remain active while recovering from injuries. It creates neuromuscular feedback (called proprioception) that inhibits (relaxes) or facilitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons. This feedback creates support elements without the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing.
