GMA In A New York Minute!

Pardon my disappearance for the last couple of days. I have been busily setting up the house for the holidays since I got back from NYC on Friday.

It was an absolute whirlwind of events! The energy there is palpable particularly at this time of year. Of course the freezing temps help you realize it's that time of year, too. Shop windows on 5th Avenue are ablaze with fantastic displays (and temptation). We did a little Christmas shopping, but Thursday was all about Good Morning America. Allison Earnst (read her success story here) and I (plus our fabulous team... thanks guys!!) met the early morning call time of 8:00 am ready to roar.

Let's just say we met soooo many celebs we had to make a list:
Robin Roberts
Sam Champion
George Stephanopoulus
Juju Chang
Tanya Rivero (my gracious hostess)
Steve Harvey (he asked me to guest on his radio show and help him lose weight!! Wahooo!!)
Food Network Chefs Mario Batali & Emeril Lagasse (who had an excellent cook off)

We met all of these folks at GMA AND we have already been invited back!! Yeah!! We had an amazing time filming our health segment. The food stylist (thanks Danni Bleil) did a bang up job and Allison was a natural! The piece will air on the afternoon of the 24th and the morning of the 25th!!

Then we visited a stunning gallery called Opera in SoHo and who should be there but Joe Jonas and Chelsea Staub! Our teens went crazy and the stars graciously chatted with us and posed for pics. Very very nice people!

After a yummy meal of fish and steamed veggies (yes, I did hold strong to Cooler 1 the whole time I was in New York!) we went to Rockefeller Plaza braving frigid temps to see the glorious Christmas tree. It really is the holidays!!

Enjoy the photos!
Mwah!

P.S. Only 1 more day left in the Cooler 1 Challenge!!! YOU CAN DO IT!

Tosca - my best friend has a MAD crush on George Stephanopolous. She would be so jealous you had your pic with him! Great segment. Hope tons of people saw it and buy the book. Was just telling my mom about you today! You're so inspiring!
BTW, can you recommend any good whole wheat tortillas? I just posted a recipe on my site, but used plain flour tortillas. Would like to up the grains and fiber by going whole wheat but can't find one I like.
