Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How the heck are you all? This past week has been especially busy for me workwise so I have to keep it brief today but get to more Blogging and good times in the days to come. For now I want to get through a bit of news before I announce my first Leslie Sansone giveaways of the month! (You can win two rockin’ DVDs one of which comes with a toning band. Good stuff!)

But first—let me do a little housekeeping and share with you some of my news.

Brooklyn Fit Chick News:

  • My friend Emmie of Authentically Emmie is featured in the December of Ladies Home Journal! That’s right, I know a famous person! Here is a link to her article http://authenticallyemmie.com/2013/11/emily-sandford-ladies-home-journal/. (So proud of this gal…) You can also follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well. Do it!
  • I am going to participate in a twitter chat this Wednesday, December 11th at 9 PM EST with Diets in Review and my new favorite brand of coconut oil–Skinny & Co Coconut Oil. OMG! This stuff is totally amazing! I have been cooking with it for a week now and the taste is sweet but not overwhelming plus it isn’t greasy to deal with. Huzzah!  Be sure to follow us on Wednesday evening at the hashtag #SkinnyCoco (their twitter handle is @SkinnyCoco
  • Below you will find details of my Leslie Sansone “Just Walk” DVD giveaways but in the meantime—can you visit The National Fitness Hall of Fame website and be sure to vote her in! She is a phenomenal instructor and deserves the recognition. You can cast your vote anytime between now and December 15th so stuff the ballot box, people!
  • In the Vlog I mention the eye roast recipe from The Domestic Man.com. If you are looking for a yummy roast recipe— this is a pretty damn good one. LOVE IT! (My apologies to my Vegan peeps.)

Okay—now on to my Vlog which has some serious white trash Christmas light action going on!



Here are the details of the Leslie Sansone DVDs:


Walk and Tone for One Mile, Five Miles or Anything in Between with Leslie Sansone’s New “5 Mega Miles” DVD

Beverly Hills, CA – Leslie Sansone’s newest walking DVD provides a virtual fitness walking library in one DVD. “Leslie Sansone: 5 Mega Miles” comes packed with a resistance band and five different one mile walking and strengthening workouts from which to choose.  There’s over an hour and 20 minutes of exercise options. This new DVD will be available in stores and on Amazon beginning September 3, 2013 for a suggested retail price of $16.98. With the help of America’s #1 Walking Expert, anyone can easily start on the road to a healthier life one step at a time.

The DVD begins with a five-minute warm-up. Mile 1 is a 15-minute classic low impact walk, using the most familiar steps at a comfortable pace. For those who want to step it up, boosted walk options are also available. Mile 2 is the Walk and Tone mile. While the feet keep moving at that same 15-minute mile pace, the toning band is added for upper body strength training. Mile 3 is a 13-minute speed interval mile. Here the pace quickens with more opportunities for gentle jogs, also known as boosted walking. Mile 4’s strength intervals bring back the band. Here it is used for standing sculpting intervals in-between brisk walk segments to help firm the entire body in just 13 minutes. Mile 5 is the Ab Walk. The feet never stop even though the focus moves to the core. A five-minute cool-down includes a moment to acknowledge the 140-pound weight loss of one of the many on-camera participants. During each mile the countdown clock appears at the ten-minute mark letting walkers know how much time is left to that mile.

And today’s second DVD to giveaway!

Leslie Sansone’s New “Walk it Off in 30 Days” DVD Gives You a Workout Plan You Can Live With!

Beverly Hills, CA – In just 30 minutes a day, six days a week, America’s #1 Walking Expert Leslie Sansone can get you on a fitness path that can last a lifetime.  Walking is one of the easiest and most popular ways to get moving and stay in shape.  The new “Leslie Sansone: Walk It Off in 30 Days” DVD provides a 30 minute cardio walk and 30 minute strength training session for a complete fitness plan.  Alternate between the Burn 30 workout and Firm 30 workout six days a week for one month and the results will speak for themselves.  The plan is simple and the moves are easy to follow.  This new DVD is available in stores and on Amazon now for a suggested retail price of $14.98

Walking is one of the most beneficial forms of exercise for reducing disease and improving quality of life.  With Leslie Sansone, you can walk inside your home so weather is never an obstacle.  Every day is perfect for getting healthier and more fit.  In addition, her moves don’t take up much space.  With two complete workouts, both cardio and strength, in one DVD there’s no guesswork.  Both workouts feature a large class setting and allow for the use of weights, if desired.  Each workout includes a warm up and cool down stretch for maximum safety.  The programs are designed to build lean muscle, drive the metabolism up and burn calories in a way that’s fun, supportive and so very do-able.

Here is a clip from “5 Mega Miles” so you can see her style for yourself.

Happy New Year!!!

As I am setting up this post, it is New Year’s Eve and all I can think about is what happened in my life in 2012 (both good & bad) plus all of the wonderful things I am looking forward to doing, seeing and experiencing in 2013. Before I get to my list of what I am most thankful for this past year—I would like to start with my last Vlog post for 2012 which includes my newest giveaway (a Flip camera!), my current MILF Diet book giveaway plus my upcoming posts planned for the week.


My cats do not make an appearance this time but I am bit loopy on cold medicine so that is always fun to check out!



Got that? Okay here are the details of the Flip camera giveaway. All you need to do is post below and let me know what you would film for your Vlog posts and I will pick one winner at my discretion next Monday, January 7th at Noon eastern time.


The contest is open to residents of the Continental U.S. plus I am opening it up to the wild and wacky residents of the Great White North!! (Yes, that means YOU too can win my beautiful Canadian readers!)


Those who post to my Twitter feed will get extra consideration @BrooklynFitChik. Also—if you have not signed up for my You Tube channel (BrooklynFitChick1)—you might want to do that as well (hint, hint!)


Finally—I want to leave you today with all of the things I am grateful for from 2012:

  • Going “Paleo” and switching to a whole/non-packaged foods. I have a couple of friends who still can’t seem to understand why (even after all of my Blogging about the health benefits I have gained) I went on this supposedly “strict” program but in addition to losing almost 20 unwanted pounds since last December—I now have a new appreciation for food as a fuel source. This is no small thing people! (Yes—even a teacher can learn a new lesson from time to time!) Also, kudos and “merci” to Keri Olkjer at http://fitviews.blogspot.com/  for her extra encouragement and all of the information she offered without a bit of hesitation. Thanks Keri!
  • The amazing, wonderful, inspiring and unforgettable Fitbloggin conference in Baltimore this past year. Special thanks to everyone I met there including Roni Noone, Carla Birnberg, Steve Gray, Robby Lamb, Christine Assaf, Toni Church, Emmie Sandford, Jack Sh*t (unfortunately, I do not know his real last name!) Tara Martin, Meegan Dowe, Joise Maurer, Kelly Olexa, Brandi Koskie, Dr. Mary, Sheryl Yvette, Sue O’Lear, Susan Ito, Mark L. from The Biggest Loser and so many more than I can’t name in just one Blog posting.  I bought my tickets for this coming June in Portland and if I can afford it—you will see me there for sure!
  • My best friend in the world—Deborah Cota. Deb is a nonstop source of love and support for me and I just wanted to take the time to thank her for all that she does for me. If you want to find about Deb’s awesome books—check out her Blog The Kindred here: http://www.dantechronicles.com/default.html
  • My new friend Marrliee Wilson of Halifax, Nova Scotia who after only knowing me a few short weeks spent hours of her time trying to teach me how to record a podcast. (I will make it happen in 2013 Marrilee! Promise!) Thank you for being such a warm and wonderful source of advice and unconditional support. You are a true gem!
  • Jenn & Tish of Fit Bottomed Girls for (especially Jenn!) not only offering me the opportunity to be their New York City eyes and ears BUT ALSO for sending me virtual hugs and high fives when I need them. You are both exemplary.
  • Finally, I want to take the time to say how grateful I am to each and every one of you who take the time to read my Blog and watch my Vlog posts (especially you Missy Barnum, Toni Church and Jennifer Mitchell of the Fitness Bloggers group on Facebook who always give me their time and incredibly useful feedback. You are the best!) It means the world to me to know that there are people out there who are joining me on this journey to get healthy and feel good for the rest of my life. Let’s do this together gang!!


Well—that is it for today. Be sure to come back in 2013 for all of the health, fitness, food and pop culture you can handle in one blog. Big hugs and kisses to all of you. (“Mwah!”)
