No Expectations

Just got back from tne Dr Oz taping in NY City, and I knew the focus of the episode was going to be Tim's book 4HB, not me, so I went into it with no expectaions....well, that's a bit of a fib... I did expect to say name, maybe? Well, that was too much I guess because I was only identified as one of "two women", lol! That's TV!

Once they requested that I wear a dress I knew I would NOT be swinging a kettlebell, but I thought kettlebells would at least be mentioned! Except for showing my part in the national video trailer for the book, where I'm swinging the kettlebell, it was barely mentioned. Unfortunate. But no worries, this is all just getting started! And, I'm still over the moon, proud and excited that I was invited at all. As soon as I know the date it will air I'll post it here and on facebook.

I'm off to teach my Swing classes this morning with only about 4 hours sleeep, which goes to show you...even if you fly across country to tape a national TV show, you still have to show up in the gym the next day...well, you do if you're me!

It was a great trip for a number of other reasons which I will write about this weekend. More to come, this story is just the beginning, not the end.

The Oz show repeated the video trailer to 4HB, but edited it to show me as the only athlete!

I was laying awake in the hotel the night before the show thinking to myself...crazy goodness happens all around me, all the time. I'm so lucky I think this way...lucky me!

The trip was a "trip"! Just the first one...a dress rehearsal of sorts!

thanks for your comment and support.

La Saun,

With the start of writing the book, it will pave the way for our project. It's going to take my style of training kettlebells to another level.

I already have material for Programming #2, a few things I've never posted on my blog, and I hope will also be incorporated into the RKC...we'll see!

A & S,

Consistency is key....and that's the truth.

I'll be posting some pictures of the physical changes my body has gone through as the result of never missing my workouts....truly amazing, even to me! Amazing because changing my body is never the goal, it's just the result!

Jen said...


You draw goodness to you (but you already know that)...lucky, yes! Totally smart? Yes! Yes! Yes!

Keep the goodness flowing.

I am interested in your project with La Saun, as she lives in the DC area, which is closer than California. :)

La Saun and I have been talking about doing a workshop early spring. I'm still writing the content, and don't know if it'll be a one or two day projrct...but you should be hearing more about it soon.
