Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Happy spring everyone! It makes me so happy to finally experience warm weather and sunshine after months of the cold and dreariness of winter not wanting to leave my part of the world. Ask anyone on the east coast and they will say that this year our weather has been less than desirable and kind of sucky most of the time. Yet today it all feels like a lifetime ago and for that I am grateful. This week I have some quick news & notes plus a cool Pure Barre DVD giveaway so let’s get to it, shall we?

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes:

Book Vs Movie Podcast News: Margo Porras of Shes Nacho Mama’s Blog co-host the “Book Vs. Movie” podcast (that you can subscribe to via iTunes at this link) and our next episode will be The Stepford Wives which will “drop” next weekend. If you have any interest at all, please be to check out our new website ( “like” us on our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter @bookversusmovie. (How is THAT for a hard sell?)

We are planning our next episodes so if there are any books & movies you want us to cover—feel free to comment below!  We love getting ideas from “the people.”

Drill Fitness NYC: As a fitness instructor it is always a privilege to take classes from my peers to learn how I can do my job better while getting in a kick ass workout. Recently (whilst on assignment for Fit Bottomed Girls) I was lucky enough to try out this chic new studio in Tribeca called Drill Fitness where they mainly teach spin & bootcamp-style classes. They have one of those fancy spin rooms with stadium seating and monitors so you can see your progress up on the screen. I say check it out for yourself!

I plan on including them in a roundup of new studios around NYC so feel free to share your suggestions for me in the comments below!

The Time I Saw “The Hungry Girl” at the StarKist event: This past week I attended a StarKist tuna event where they unveiled a few of their newest flavors coming out in the fall. (My favorite is Bacon Ranch—yum!)

Upon arrival I noticed the really cool nostalgia items from StarKist:

Starkist stuff

The evening’s super special guest star was none other than Lisa Lillien aka The Hungry Girl whom I caught taking a selfie with “Charlie” himself!

Lisa was there to promote her brand new “The Hungry Diet Cookbook” and yes indeed I snagged a signed copy! (Thanks Lisa!)

I Need a “Deep Tissue Massage” Expert! This is call-out for help! I am working on a piece about what to expect from your first deep tissue massage and I need an expert to give me tips & advice. Is this you or someone you know? Please leave a comment below if so! (Merci in advance…)
