Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 69
Featuring: NYC Healthy Bloggers Fit Brunch, My First Formal Headshot and a “Sweat Guru+” Giveaway
Hey there! Hi there! Hi there!
How are you all doing? Since my incident of vertigo (BPPV) a couple of weeks ago I have been feeling much better (thanks so much to all of you who checked in with me. I really appreciate it.) The key when you are dealing with this type of an ailment is to learn to enjoy life’s little victories. Such as “Hey—I managed to lie back in the washing station chair at the salon and not get dizzy!” And “Ooh, I can reach down and tie my shoe laces without falling over—cool!” I have no idea if I will “tumble” again but I if I do—the next time I will not be as scared because and will know what the hell is going and treat the symptoms.
I have not had taken any kind of medicine (over-the-counter or prescribed) in over a week and the exercises I have found on You Tube (particularly this one from As Dr. Jo) have been most helpful. It still makes me nervous to think about teaching core moves on my back (in a supine position)—but I am getting stronger every day and will be back to my old self soon.
Anyhoo—I actually had a fun week starting with my NYC Blogger Brunch held in my apartment-whoo hoo! It’s been hella cold out here and I was worried people would bail out of the schlep to Brooklyn but we had a few brave & hearty souls come by. You can read an excellent recap here from my friend Cassandre of Losing in the City (sorry my cat scared you!) And while our conversation was private (we may have gossiped just a wee bit…) it was fun, light-hearted and full of reciprocated love.
Next time I host I will do a better job of getting the word out on Facebook (I realized I left some pretty groovy friends off of the first invite by accident—dammit!) But if you want to win your own goodie bag form the event just hang on and I will give you the details below.
First I want to thank the following Bloggers for making the trek:
- Cassandre of Losing in the City
- Amber of Ex So Cise
- Kelly E. (drove in from Long Island on a snowy day) of Curvy Fit Girl
- Brooklyn Active Mama (Schnelle)
- Queen Bacon who is one HELL Of a cook people!
- Fellow Sweat Pink-er Lynette (also a fab cook) you can follow her here
- The lovely Rebecca
We ate piles of good food, laughed our butts off, tried out the Da Vinci BodyBoard that I reviewed for Fit Bottomed Girls, and I gave away goodie bags! Want to know what they got? Get ready to watch this clio and then find out how you can win!
Also, this past week I had my first official headshot done since…hell I have NO idea when I last sat for a portrait but one of my excellent student is an ace photographer and he managed to “catch my essence” pretty well. His name is Victor Giganti and is based here in Brooklyn. I think this shot is my favorite—what do you think?
In the meantime—here is this week’s Vlog post:
