Pssst! I am being featured On Fine Fit Day TODAY for Fit Mama Fridays! Please stop by Carly’s blog for a fun interview! 🙂
Earlier this week I was invited to the Clean Your Slate event thrown by Women’s Health Magazine. I have been a subscriber for EONS so I was excited to attend! What I didn’t know was that I would be on camera, not once, not twice, but four times! #readyformycloseup!
When I arrived it was really cold outside, the set up was in the middle of Times Square and a few blocks away from where I work. The first thing I saw was people writing all of their confessions on this big blackboard! It was really cool to see everyone’s confessions!
After I signed my waiver/release I headed into the tent. It was nice and toasty inside and the Women’s Health Magazine staff were the type of girls that you meet and hit it off with instantly! They were so sweet and awesome. There was a line of people ready to confess their dietary sins, and I managed to get myself in there too. Was it bad that when I went to figure out which sin I was going to confess, too many came to mind? It’s been a long week. 🙂
I got in and I got comfortable on this beautiful red velvet sofa. I could have EASILY napped in the middle of Times Square–but I digress.
I confidently got in front of that camera and I made my confession–wait for it–
“During the snow storm last week I ate two sleeves of
Ritz crackers.” Don’t judge me y’all!!
The cool part about all of this is that there was an artist on hand live drawing what I was saying in the confessional. After that it would be displayed in the heart of TIMES SQUARE!! How awesomesauce is that? After I
begrudgingly left the beautiful red sofa I was whisked away again, for yet another camera interview! (I so wish someone had told me this before, I would have AT LEAST refreshed my lipstick and blotted my face! Thank goodness for a good matte MAC Lippie)
I was asked a few questions about Smart Ones who has a new line of oatmeal, I didn’t get to try it, but spoiler alert, it looks DELISH! And as I said on camera, anything with apples and cinnamon is alright with me! There is also a good amount of fiber and its under 200 calories, you can’t beat that with a stick! This is especially great for women who have very little time to prepare breakfast.
After that interview, I was the first one to get my confessional debuted on the big screen! Right before that I was interviewed again, and I was asked how it felt to confess my food sins to the world. I told them it felt great! I didn’t have to feel bad about my food choice, I could start over with a clean slate right here, right now. The Clean Slate is a great message to send to folks that may have fallen off the proverbial New Year’s Resolution wagon–you can start over with a clean plate and the right food choices!
I had the camera on me one more time as they watched my reaction to my words being on the screen for the world to see–It was a bit liberating to tell you the truth!
