Lights, Camera, Action! Dr. Oz...and more good, no, great news

Tomorrow afternoon Mark and I are flying to Rockefeller Center, NYC. Why you ask? Well, it appears I'm going to be on the Dr. Oz show! Woo hoo! Can you believe it? Dr. freakin' Oz! Tim Ferris is going to be a guest, and on Tim's recommendation, the producers agreed I could represent a part of his book that would appeal to their audience. Of course I'm nervous, mostly about saying something silly, or silly sounding. That's why I'm taking my manager with me! Mark always knows what to say and he helps give me the confidence I'm going to need....

because there's more good news....


It also seems as if I just signed a contract with Tim's Agent, Steven Hanselman, to start writing my own book! I've got a contract, and I've got an agent...I've got an agent! I've been giggling for days!


I'm so behind on a few other projects I need to finish. My workout DVD's are at the top of the list....those are in the final editing. But I already have a kick ass high volume snatch workout planned for Saturday morning... We fly into SF from NYC at 11:00pm Friday night and we won't get home until midnight. a few hours later I'm teaching classes starting at 7:30am....geez, the makeup from the show will still be on my face, lol!

As soon as I know the date the show airs I will post it on my blog and on facebook. Oh, but before then I'll have pictures and maybe a small video of part of the experience.

"I wanna wake up in a city, that doesn’t sleep
And find I’m king of the hill - top of the heap
If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere
It’s up to you - New York, New York"

Like a dream come true!
Congratulations, Ma'am! :)

Josh Hillis said...

Tracy, really really awesome!

I think it's so awesome that all of this came out of your personal transformation.

You took on your whole way of life, carved out a strong, lean body, and then were super cool about then sharing it with all of us.

You are a leader in the purest sense of the word.

I'm really stoked to just get to read your story again.
