YouTube HQ & My Love for Whole Foods
Yesterday I went to YouTube HQ to get interviewed by some Korean newspapers about being a YouTube personality. It was kind of cool because I never really get the chance to sit down and talk about what I do. The interview was good because it helped me recap my journey from corporate America right out of college to a job where I can teach people all over the world how to stay fit and healthy. I am really so grateful for all of this and all of you guys :)
Anyway, after the interview I asked if I could go down the famous YouTube slide. So I totally did. And I totally made a video. You should watch it!
Right now I am at Whole Foods!!!! (On the internet, blogging, and eating peanut butter…mmm….)
I always get so happy when I am here. I don’t know why. It’s like some kind of healthy living freak’s mecca. I can’t describe it. When I was walking up to the store, my heart was racing, and when I saw the mini carts I smiled. And then when the doors opened and I saw all of the perfectly stacked fruits and veggies – ahhh….I knew I was in heaven. Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I just a little crazy?
I gathered some goods for the Vegan Challenge beginning next Monday May 28th! Here’s what I got. And yes, as I promised I WILL have a shopping list for you by the end of the week so you know what to get this weekend to prep for Monday. Here’s a sneak peek into my grocery basket!
Ezekiel bread, soy yogurt, freshly ground unsalted organic peanut butter (MY FAVEEEE!!! AHHH!!!!), quinoa, and amaranth!!!! The last 2 items are grains that have at least 6g protein per serving. I love amaranth. I can’t wait to cook with it and show you my recipes for it. It’s kinda crunchy and ooey gooey at the same time…have you ever had it? The nutrition facts are in this gallery below if you are interested.
The raw vegan cheesecake video and recipe will be going up tonight. I can’t wait for you to see it! It’s a fun piece :) Oh and also…I will be starting a new Pilates class in downtown San Francisco soon! I can’t wait to tell you what gym and what time. You guys have been asking for a LOOOONG time and finally it’s happening. I can’t wait to POP it up in one of the top gym brands in the US. Super excited!!!!
Anyway, I should probably get home and get some work done! Have a fabulous day and I’ll see you later tonight with that new video. OH and the new Bikini Blaster 2: Sexy Legs workout will go up on Thursday. Get ready for it! Time to tone up those inner thighs, outer thighs, calves, hamstrings, and everything in between. It’s shorts shorts season and I want EVERYONE showing it off in booty shorts.
These are from the new POOF! Apparel collection on shopblogilates.com! There’s new Train Insane or Remain the Same colors available too – so be sure to check that out! We’re shipping like crazy over here so if you get a shipping confirmation email within the hour after you order – get excited because it’s really on it’s way!!! I don’t play around over here :) I want you to get your stuff! And tweet or FB me a picture when you do.
Much love! Gotta get home now…TTYL! Tonight.
