Well, it's a start. Today will just be a few paragraphs and my return of the Yummy Mondays.
So let me tell ya what I'm up to today and later I'll fill ya in on what's been going on
in the last couple of months :)
As for today...I'm typing this from my MacBook (I totally heart all things Apple) from the desk chair of
my hotel room in the lovely Burbank, California (about an hour from my home). My call time is
7:30 am, which is when my fabulous friend and make-up artist Tiffany (who seems to know
every fashion, make-up and beauty tip the celebrities use) will take me
from "OMG...SCARY" to camera ready! Most days we've finished around 7:30 pm! Long -
long days lately.
I'm filming a new series called, "ChaLEAN Extreme" (little play on my name...that btw..
does not have Mom very happy to have my name intentionally
misspelled. The program name is growing on me! The program itself I couldn't be more
excited about. More details to come, but in a nutshell, it's a strength training program
built on the science and research I have been studying for the past year. The program
is built on the concept of Undulating Periodization and heavy weights to create very
different results in men than we see in women. Men get leaner and bigger, women get
leaner, but smaller. Both species are happy!
Every 30 days the program changes. Every 30 days you do a different style of lifting..
a different program. The results of all of our testing are jaw dropping, eye popping
and life changing for me.
So... in order to replicate exactly what I've been doing with these people every
week (5 days a week)... I had to film 5 to 6 workouts for every 30 days to last
people 3 to 4 months! The result...somewhere between 16 and 18 fat stripping,
metabolism blasting workouts that I really think are the most sound and
and life changing workouts anyone will have seen to date on the market. Not
because I created it, but because I really used the best University studies to
create something based 100% on what works.
Whew. I've filmed 14 so far, 4 more this week! It' a bit taxing (okay to be honest..
I'm completely insane and off my rocker right now..,) but only because it
takes me out of my normal daily routine and temporarily away from my kids and
hubby several days a week... which me "no likey". My family and my routine
keep me sane.
(Now picture me in a yoga pose breathing deeply) But I'm blessed to do what I do and
this is a small price to pay for the huge impact I know this will make on people, especially
those who like me (approaching 40) thought that their age had something to do
with the metabolism slowing... it's actually a loss of muscle. More on that later.
Anyway... to summarize I have been working on this project 7 days a week for the past
6 months. I apologize for my momentary absence from my blog, but when my
workload increases, I cut back in luxories (like blogging) so that I don't have to cut
back on family time.
Well....4 more videos this week, then I promise a deep breath, some
snowboarding, and a detailed update and all the juicy details about a program
that will turn at home exercise on its head! Til then, here's a Yummy
