Arnold Countdown

Hello everyone. I am back from my whirlwind trip to Amelia Island, Florida. It was a bit of a nightmarish travel experience, but it was well worth it.

The events for Harlequin's Sales Conference were lovely even if it was a bit chilly. I could smell the ocean from my... but I didn't get to dip my toe in it. I spoke on Wednesday evening as the representative of Harlequin's new Non-Fiction Health & Fitness department. My book will be debuting very soon! I also hosted a Q & A session followed by a book signing. On Thursday morning bright & early I ran a training session for the group. The challenge was: no weights! Wow! I'm a Sister in Iron. What am I without my weights? Well, I am the master of weight bearing exercise apparently! Push ups, lunges, squats, dips, core strengthening, stretching, cardio, etc etc.... you name it, we did it! What a great time it was whipping everyone into shape. Even without music we all managed to stay energized and motivated throughout the entire session. Phewf!!!

Now I am home sweet home and counting down.

That's right... the Arnolds Sports Festival & Expo is literally 1 week away. This time next week I will be aboard a bus bound for Columbus, Ohio with the rest of the fabulous Robert Kennedy Publishing team. I just can't wait! Now it's time to tighten up my diet plan... Cooler 1 here I come. I'll also be putting my nose to the grindstone work wise with my team in order to make this the best Arnold experience yet.

I really hope you are planning on joining us. As I've been saying for the last couple of weeks I really want to hear all of your success stories, experiences, and journeys with the Eat-Clean Diet. YOU are what makes it REAL!

Tosca- I just wanted you to know I just made your cottage cheese pancakes from "The Eat Clean Diet Cookbook" and they are amazing! My whole family loved them. I'll be making these often.

Hey Tosca! Please let me know the second we can order your new book! I can't wait!!! We are so lucky to continue to be motivated by you. I just read ECD recharged for the second time and I can't believe we already get another book!!! The best part about your books is everytime I read them (even the 5th or 6th time) I learn something new! The more I understand the ECD the more I am able to learn-I LOVE IT!! Thank you for setting the example for all of us!

Oh my goodness, I live on Amelia Island! Yep, certainly has been cold. I found your site through - my husband and I are big on clean eating but we were kind of doing it on our own. I'm going to order a couple of your books to help with some guidelines! Thank you for the excellent resources.
