Duh…WINNING!!!! A post about winners.

Duh…WINNING!!!! A post about winners.

You must say that in the style of Charlie Sheen.

The Charlie Sheen Duh Winning thing is old, but if you have no idea what I am talking about watch this:

Oh and that graphic reminds me of someone else who’s winning…

President Barack Obama just won his second term in office last night! WINNING! And guess who just won themselves the grand prize oGorgeous gym bag from the WeightTraining Pilates Burpee Battle?

Mindy13579 you are WINNING! The 14 POPsters who logged their Pilates Burpees are WINNING! And anyone who competed you are WINNING too! (See if you won here.)

Train Insane Hoodies are back. WINNING! Use “thanks10” to get 10% off. BI-WINNING!!! 😀

Oh and the one you’ve probably been waiting for…who won the DVD Cover Contest after tallying votes and getting judge’s scores?

Diandra Mezta is…WINNING! This was such a hard decision to make as all the covers were so beautiful and had their own unique style. With over 2,000 votes, you guys clearly knew what you wanted though! My friends and family also agreed. Congrats to Diandra for designing the official cover. She gets an oGorgeous gym bag, the chance to have her work published across  the first ever POP Pilates DVD – world wide, and of course now a paid job opp. I’m super excited to be working with Diandra on finalizing the front cover, making the back, the spine, and the actual disc! POPster collaboration is THE BEST! Good energy, talent, and passion. I’m feelin it.

The 4 runner ups – I’d love to send you a gift just for making it this far! If you haven’t already, please send me an email! WINNING!

Oh you know who else needs to send me an email?

Anyone with PETsters!!! I am including some fun fan photo albums on the DVD and was wondering if you could send in some pics of you with your funny pets doing Blogilates workouts or something. Would be so cool! Just email POPsterpost@gmail.com.

Also, I am planning to include pics from the meetups in SF, LA, London, and Sydney in there as well. Anyone opposed to having their photo in the DVD? Let me know right away!

Finally, if you read my feeling post from yesterday you’d know it’s been a tough weekend for me emotionally. Well, I need to update you on this story. You know how at the end of my post I said:

“I don’t even think he is reading this right now. Because the person who actually values me would.”

Nope. I couldn’t believe it either.

I opened my inbox to find a letter

…from him.

You could not imagine the emotion that I was overcome with. He was not supposed to read that. Because if I knew he would, I wouldn’t have written it the way I did. I guess that’s kinda silly of me to assume there wasn’t a chance of him coming across it – but I honestly didn’t think he read my blog.

It was overwhelming, shocking, and extremely confusing. It’s one of those moments where you shake your head and just sigh. All I can say is that the universe works in such fascinating ways. Declare what you want loud and proud and if it’s meant to be, it will. If not, something better will come.

I can’t tell you what’s going to happen in this story. But I can tell you that I wrote back with my rawest, most vulnerable feelings and didn’t hold back. Yes. SCARY. Very, very scary.

We all have to learn how to be comfortable with our emotions and share them with others. Most of the time, people hold back to preserve their ego and their pride. I don’t believe in that. If you think someone’s amazing, you tell them. I’m sure it’ll make them smile. If you think someone is making you feel like poo, you also tell them. If they do something about it, then you just made things better. If not, you don’t need to be there. Communication is so important.

Congrats to all of our winners, and keep EPIC WINNING through life POPsters!

<3 Cassey

    Hi, Cassey, when you said, “And anyone who competed you are WINNING too! (See if you won here” you mean the winners from day 1-7, right? I didn’t win but I did compete for the grand prize…I probably misunderstood???

  6. Jessica Perez says:

    Oh, a question… Does anyone know if you HAD to be a pro member to win in the challenge at all? Because I noticed that all the winners you could see their calories burned; can’t ony pro members see the burnt calories?

    1. Asha says:

      I think it’s because one of the prizes for winning was a 1 year free pro membership. So when they won, they automatically got a pro membership and it showed how many calories they burned for their workouts.

      1. Yep – Everyone who won received a free year of PRO. Thanks to all who participated. It was an awesome event! We should do one again soon.

    Congrats to all the winners! Great dvd cover, can’t wait for the dvd release! 🙂

    Cassey, your two quiet cardio vids in the calendar made my day today! Just this morning my physiotherapist told me not to do jumpy moves because I’ve been havig problems with my knee lately. I was really gutted because i thought i wouldn’t be able to do the calendar cardio workouts anymore, but the two
    quiet cardio vids are perfect, easy on my knees but my heartrate goes up anyway! I’m relieved and hope my knee will get better and i can still workout and strengthen my
    muscles 🙂 thanks!!

  11. Sandz says:

    Congrats Diandra, good work!! And thanks for sharing your example on being vulnerable Cassey, we all hold back more than we think, especially as women.

  12. munchkin says:
