pics 2 weeks out + fitbook’s 1st press

so here i am…2 weeks away from sporting my tiny bikini on stage!  the list of friends that are going to be there is growing each day so no pressure whatsoever…yeah right!  not to mention my mom is flying all the way to california for this!!  i’m excited but getting a little nervous too!   i was SO close to posting my back view pics tonight, but i’m a pansy…but i will post them in week 12 and show a before and after.  my back is coming in nice but my rear needs a bit more sun and a little more stepmill before we’re going to be posting any rear-view pics! 

at 2 weeks out i’m at 104.8 and 12% body fat.  my goal is to get that between 10 and 11 in the next few weeks!  which is why i’m spending the majority of my time on the stepmill…gotta burn that fat!  speaking of the stepmill…this is fairly entertaining: i’m sending out an email blast for fitlosophy this week and i wrote the entire thing on my blackberry while on the stepmill at the gym!  how’s that for multi-tasking?  all while keeping my heart rate around 140 and (the real miracle) not falling off! 

i’m going to workout with my trainer tomorrow on the beach – i’m excited and interested to see how i get my bicep workout in on the beach!  i guarantee though any workout that sounds fun – like ‘yay the beach’ – is more tortorous than any gym session.  and then i’m going to practice my posing so i know what the heck i’m doing when i get up on stage.  this weekend i already started getting my base tan in the tanning beds and i ordered the competition tan stuff…the stuff that will literally make me look like a freshly basted turkey right out of the oven.  i’m just hoping i’m more bronzey than orangey.  and i still have to find my shoes!  they are clear lucite high heels – the kind strippers wear i guess – and they are super hard to find.  i felt kinda guilty googling ‘stripper shoe store in orange county’ on easter sunday…ha!  so it looks like i need to hit hollywood blvd. after all.  oh joy!

so onto big exciting news for fitlosophy: we had our first press mention in an article this month!!  it was an article in pregnancy magazine on getting back into shape after having a baby and lisa druxman, founder of stroller strides, listed fitbook as one of the ‘must-have’ fitness tools!  here’s a pdf of the article that i scanned because it’s not online yet – or better yet, go buy a copy!!  it was quite entertaining going to buy 3 copies of pregnancy magazine and having the guy take a double take at my not-so-pregnant looking belly!  ha ha!  so this is great news for fitlosophy and fitbook – momentous actually.  i’m hoping this is the first of many placements we get just because people love it and spread the word about how it can really make a difference in helping people reach their goals.  it just makes me smile knowing that what started as just an idea is actually getting some buzz and helping to change the lives of people.  we at fitlosophy are very proud of this…check it out: fitbook in pregnancy magazine: may 2009

 so that’s that!  off to enjoy my hot tea and hit the hay!

    Angela, That’s fantastic – love the article and the photo of Fitbook in the magazine. Can’t wait to hear what comes out of this…thinking of you prepping for the last 2 weeks. It will be intense, but you can do it!! Marcia

    A workout on the beach sounds wonderful, but I’m going to make a guess that it isn’t as wonderful as it sounds.
    Only 2 weeks left! I can’t believe you’re almost there. The pics look fantastic.
    Congratulations on the article, the picture shows the book well.
