I’m back from Portland! What a fun trip. The biggest highlight was definitely the live Q&A webcast with Bowflex, but there were other highlights too. Did you miss the webcast? Watch the video right here!
If for some reason the YouTube video isn’t working for you, you can also watch the video by clicking here. (Warning: I couldn’t get it to work in Firefox, but it worked in Chrome. You may need to try a couple different browsers, too!)

This Tuesday, at 11am EST/8am PST, I’ll be taking YOUR questions during Bowflex’s LIVE Webcast Q&A! Watch from your computer (and submit questions) by clicking here. Need another reason to watch? According to the Bowflex blog post, folks that tune in will have a chance to win a Bowflex TreadClimber TC10! Holy moley, that’s a fancy piece of exercise equipment! So join me, fitness expert Tom Holland, and Brooke Birmingham (who’s lost 172 pounds!) – it’ll be fun.
I’m going to Portland for the webcast, so this may be my last blog post until I get back. If you saw me during the webcast and am checking out this page for the first time, then WELCOME! I hope you look around. There’s lots of before and after photos, recipes, and posts ranging from inspiring exercise accomplishments to how I deal with depression and mental illness. You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. There’s a “Sign Me Up” box in the top right part of this page where you can subscribe to get new posts via email. Read the rest of this entry »

Every once in a while, my loves of history and exercise collide. It happened the other night, when I went for a run in a location where Charlie Chaplin filmed one of his most acclaimed movies. And I have proof!
