The husband drove up with me because he and Kelly’s husband went golfing while we went to the event. I think I even saw them secretly exchanging braided friendship bracelets…
On our way up we stopped at Starbucks and I manhandled him into taking yet another picture of me. You got me for life, baby.
At the event I met a bunch of fabulous people and wondered why I didn’t have any friends.
Monica and I.
Kathy and I. You think of celeb trainer, you think of Jillian Michaels, you think of a very manly woman who you will shake hands with and she’ll break your rotator cuff off…
But Kathy was really friendly, personable, funny and womanly. Even though she obviously knows her stuff and could kick some serious workout booty, it wasn’t like she had a breakfast of glass shards and ‘roids either.
After meeting everyone, we got down to working out. We did about 10 1 minute circuit stations 3 times each.
The mini trampolines=fun. Triceps dips=make someone you really don’t like do these. They hurt.
After the 35-40 minute workout, we sat down with Kathy and learned a little her and Salonpas.
TOMORROW Kathy is launching a new program called Sunday Set-up.
The idea is that every Sunday you “set-up” your meals for the week by shopping at your local farmers’ market (or natural food market) and selecting, then prepping foods that can be made into a week’s worth of recipe ingredients.
And she goes into celebrities’ kitchens, peaks in their fridges and helps them do the same thing – “set up” for the week.
Since I celeb stalk with the best of them, looking into a celebrity’s fridge is my holy grail! But beyond the stalking, Sunday Setup provides things like healthy grocery lists, recipes, and other great information so check out Sunday Set-up tomorrow when it launches.
Back to the event: we were given a goody bag from Salonpas.
Including samples of Salonpas pain patch which is the only FDA-approved over the counter pain patch.
I’ve used these on my hip since it occasionally gets sore from piriformis, and some girls even mentioned using it on their necks for headaches. It’d also be great for back pain. Or if you want your husband to stop screaming at the football game on tv, it might even work as duct tape.
The patches give relief for 12 hours and are superthin so if you wanted, you could plaster your entire body with them. (hmm, Rose)
After the event, about 10 of us went to the Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas for lunch.
Maryann, Caryn and Kaitlin.
**Although you’re probably thinking I had to pay all these people to hang out with me, Salonpas actually provided the event and swag in exchange for my opinions according to FTC regulations.
Question: What’s one of the hardest exercises you do?
My string cheese arms are screaming tricep dips.
