Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 66

Featuring: The Brooklyn Fit Chick NYC Bloggers Brunch, the Da Vinci BodyBoard, Michael McKean and Beyoncé!

Plus: My Dr. Ian K. Smith Super Shred: The Big Results Diet

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

It’s 2014 and I am back in the Blogging saddle—whoo hoo! December was sort of a roller coaster of wonderful and annoying occurrences but I am finally over my Christmas cold, my back is feeling better , I am back to my regular teaching schedules and am ready to get back to my orderly, scheduled life. (Really—I am rather orderly in my everyday life!)

This year I broke away from my usual declarations for the New Year. To be honest—all of my possible mottos, promises, and intentions that I almost wrote on this Blog seemed trite. 2013 was a pretty great year and I am really looking forward to what is around the corner. Maybe I am learning to temper my expectations? Perhaps I need to think on it some more. But I faced a blank page every day for a week trying to come up with New Year’s post that would hopefully be inspiring and came up with nothing.

How about you? Did you come up with any resolutions? What are you planning to take on this year? I want to hear all about it!

Anyway—here are the notes for my first Vlog post for 2014:

  • Attention NYC-based health, fitness and wellness Bloggers–I am hosting a Brooklyn Fit Chick NYC Bloggers Brunch on Saturday, January 25th from 1-4 pm here at my place here in Park Slope. There will be goodie bags! For more details and/or to RSVP reach out to me at brooklynfitchick at gmail dot com. Hope you can make it!
  • BFC Brunch Invite
  • The Da Vinci BodyBoard is now in my apartment and I will have it reviewed on Fit Bottomed Girls soon. (Spoiler—I love it!) Here is a photo of Flohery Mahoney demonstrating it to me a few weeks ago.
  • Floery Mahoney demonstrating the Da Vinci Body Board in my messy apartment!

  • The amazing, talented and gifted comedic actor Michael McKean responded to one of my Tweets on Christmas Eve and it totally rocked my world. Here is a screen grab!
  • 2013-12-24 14_53_21-HootSuite
  • Beyonce released a “visual album” and I am incapable of NOT watching/listening to it every single day since I downloaded it. If you are on the fence about whether or not to get it—just get it. You will thank me later. (You’re welcome!)
  • Finally—I am giving away one copy of Dr. Ian Smith Super Shred: The Big Results Diet to one lucky reader. Details after the Vlog!

 

Now let us get to this week’s giveaway!

Super Shred

SUPER SHRED

The Big Results Diet/ Ian K. Smith, M.D.

4 Weeks, 20 Pounds, Lose it Faster!

SUPER SHRED: The Big Results Diet by #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Ian Smith is a four-week supercharged weight loss plan based on a combination of new science and the dieter-tested concepts behind Dr. Ian’s #1 mega-bestseller of 2013, Shred: The Revolutionary Diet.  Dr. Ian was also recently announced as co-host of the Emmy-winning daytime talk show The Doctors.  (St. Martin’s Press, $24.99)

Shred became a national phenomenon in 2012, when Dr. Ian shared the diet with a core group of followers on Twitter.  Soon, “shredder cells” began forming in cities across the country, and a movement was born—Shred became an instant #1 bestseller upon publication, and has spent 23 weeks and counting on the New York Times bestsellers list (6 weeks at #1).  There are now 20 shredder cells nationwide, and the national SHREDDER Nation Facebook page allows tens of thousands of shredders to communicate, get support, and hear the latest on weight loss and living a healthier life.

In SUPER SHRED, Dr. Ian distills his successful diet plan into a concentrated, shorter program.  It’s a “destination diet,” for the goal-oriented person who wants faster, more dramatic results right away, and for those who have a specific target they need to reach by a certain date—a beach vacation, a reunion, a wedding, or a doctor’s orders to lose weight quickly for health reasons.  In other words, this is a “crash” diet, but one that is completely healthy, flexible, and effective and doesn’t involve the unhealthy extreme measures that rapid weight loss typically demands.

After thousands of pleas via email and Twitter, Dr. Ian created a program that could deliver big results in a short period of time, without jeopardizing health.  He went to the SHREDDER Nation on Facebook and Twitter and put the new program to the test, and the results were absolutely amazing—average weight loss in just 4 weeks was 20 pounds.  But weight loss wasn’t the only measure of success.  Many SHREDDERS dropped 2 sizes, lowered their blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and reduced their need for diabetes medications.

Each week of SUPER SHRED has a different theme and purpose: Foundation, Accelerate, Shape, Tenacious.  The weeks work progressively, and symbolize what the program is designed to do:  to take weight off F.A.S.T.  With easy-to-follow menus, shopping lists, recipes, exercise plans and the motivational help to stick with it, SUPER SHRED is the key to dropping pounds, breaking through a plateau and reaching your finish line.

Now let us get to this week’s giveaway!!!! Here are the details of the Cindy Whitmarsh Giveaways! 

Get Fit in Six Weeks, Stay Fit for Life with Cindy Whitmarsh’s New U.F.I.T. Weight Loss Program!

SAN DIEGO, CA –Fitness and sports nutrition expert Cindy Whitmarsh has trained everyone from professional athletes to new moms. Her new U.F.I.T. weight loss program asks women to give her six weeks, one minute at a time, for results that will last a lifetime. The three Ultra Focused Interval Training DVDs each include two 20-minute workouts. Each workout is made up of one, two or three minute intervals, alternating cardio and toning. The moves are athletic and uncomplicated. What is U.F.I.T. Training? It’s an intense interval training method consisting of targeted intervals to turn any body into a calorie-burning machine while building a sleek, toned physique! Since no workouts can beat what one eats, the complete downloadable U.F.IT. package ($39.95) also includes a meal plan and a workout calendar. Each DVD is available on line and sells for $14.95 ($39.95 set) http://cindywhitmarshfitness.com. Everything (including meal plan $19.95 and workout calendar $9.95) is available individually or as complete set.

The three DVDs are:

U.F.I.T. Ultra Burn – Calorie Crushing Cardio and Sculpt & Stretch

U.F.I.T.  Ultra Lean – Upper Body Bliss and Lower Body Blast

U.F.I.T Ultra Tight – Hard Body and 6 Pack Abs

Hand weights are used. Modifications are offered for beginners. One can expect sweat will pour but that’s what it takes to make lasting, noticeable changes.

The workout calendar included in the complete set makes it easy to know which workout to do each day. For the first two weeks, one only has to commit to twenty minutes for six consecutive days.

The meal plan includes a first week jump start, grocery list, advice on supplements, eating on the go and more. Week one switches the body into an accelerated change mode. From there it moves into a plan designed to help anyone stay on track to be fit, maintain lean muscle and live healthier. Three meals and two snacks daily provide approximately 1250 calories each day for woman and 1750 for men. Each meal aims for a ratio of 30% protein, 50% carbohydrates and 20% fat.

About Cindy Whitmarsh: Certified by the American Council on Exercise and National Association of Sports Nutrition, Cindy has worked with San Diego Charger football players, Charger girls, pro beach volleyball players and the anchors of Good Morning San Diego where she is the fitness correspondent. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate & Community Fitness/Nutrition from North Dakota State University. She moved to San Diego from North Dakota in 1994 when she was 40 pounds heavier than she is now. She has maintained that weight loss even after having three children ranging in age from 2 to 13.  Follow her on Facebook, Twitter @CindyWhitmarsh, Instragram and www.CindyWhitmarshFitness.com.

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 60: My New Facebook Fan Page, “Man-Splaining” The Smiths & Da Vinci Body Board Giveaway! 5

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 60

Featuring: My New Facebook Fan Page, “Man-Splaining Morrissey & Partnering with Comeback Momma

For the Da Vinci Body Board Giveaway

 davinci-homepage-hero-v2

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

So this week I am a little cramped for time and need to just get out a couple of things before I give you the sexy deets about my first partnership with my good friend at Comeback Momma. This giveaway is worth $400 and will rock your socks off! But first a little housekeeping and a quick nonsensical story about a clueless hipster, cash register dude who tried to explain The Smiths to me at Trader Joe’s this past week. (Son—I have been listening to Mope Rock since before your parents even met!)

First, the fun news of the week:

  • I finally have a Facebook Fan Page—whoo hoo! Here is the Link please, pretty please with sugar lumps on top will you follow me (or rather, “like” my page?) It will make me so happy to have you all join me there. (Big kadooz to my friend Mariette at Namaste Mari for helping me get my crap together with this project!)

 

“Man-splaining Morrissey”

I talk about this more in this week’s Vlog but recently a cashier at Trader Joe’s engaged me in a very awkward conversation. He was singing the lyrics while attempting to explain to me the “irony” inherent in The Smiths song “Happy Unbirthday.”  I am so not kidding about this.

To give you some context I am clearly MUCH older than the kid at Trader Joe’s and The Smiths and Morrissey are more from my generation so why did he bring up the subject in the first place and felt the need to explain the lyrics to me? It was just a weird exchange. Here is The Smith “Happy Unbirthday” if you have no idea what on earth I am talking about but feel like getting bummed out for a few minutes.

Anyhoo—on to the giveaway! I am really happy to be a part of such a cool, freaking awesome giveaway—the Da Vinci Body Board which retails for $400. All of the details are below my signature and the giveaway will be live from Monday. November 11th – Sunday, December 1st and I wish you all the best of luck.

Now on to this week’s Vlog!

Da Vinci Body Board Giveaway

Introducing The Da Vinci BodyBoard

The Da Vinci BodyBoard system combines strength training and cardio in one short, daily workout system. The system works for any fitness level and can be used as a rehab system for injuries. The system is designed to build long, lean, muscles and does not tear the muscle. As a result, it can be used daily. This facilitates a more habit-forming exercise regime.
Because of the short time commitment, there are no excuses. The BodyBoard also reaches the smaller muscles that support your joints creating a body with a more complete and balanced muscle structure.

You’ll never want to put off a Da Vinci BodyBoard workout. Its an effective workout system that builds strength and cardio fitness, AND it fits into a busy lifestyle, so it’s something you will look forward to in your daily routine.

I’ve partnered with the giveaway host, Comeback Momma to present this amazing giveaway. Check out her review of the Da Vinci Body Board. Good luck!
