CHALENE JOHNSON: MY FITNESS FAV
So this isn’t going to be my normal kind of post, but it does have to do with fitness…sort of…because I’m writing about my favorite fitness and entrepreneurial guru: Chalene Johnson. She’s the one who made me LOVE working out. I don’t mean I just didn’t mind doing it daily. She made me look forward to pushing play and sweating. I’ve had the opportunity to meet her in New York City. How EXCITING!! And I even saw her two summers ago at Summit. I played it cool when I walked by her…didn’t stop her. Just said (I’m sure with an insane look on my face), “Heeeyyyyy, Chalene!!” I love the energy she brings to a room…even through a television screen.
I know the pic is blurry…but it’s all I got!
FITNESS AND MORE
So I learned about Chalene through doing Turbo Fire. I lost 14 lbs! Not too shabby when I was trying to lose 40 lbs of baby weight. And it was fun too. I went on to do PiYo once it was released and have since completed the program twice. Not only is Chalene a figure in the world of fitness, but she helps people figure out how to make their dreams a reality. She’s good at it too! She’s written PUSH, and that is certainly a book that has helped me figure out and tackle goals. She’s also really pretty and good at doing (her own) hair and make up. So the other day, one of her videos came up and she started by saying that the most common question she gets doesn’t have to do with making millions…
Now this is NOT something I know a lot about, but her video is hilarious! If you want to check out the whole thing, I’ve linked it to her Facebook profile here. You should follow her! But if you’re looking for the key points, here you go:
She said to take screen shots, which I did, but I didn’t get a good one…so I wrote it down.
These are the lashes she uses.
And the glue she uses.
She also shared how she puts on her make up…broken brushes. And the most effective way to clean them? Wipe them on your hand. lol Now this is a make up tutorial I feel like I can get behind and do. I’m not much of a make up gal, but I’m fascinated by it, and I feel like after watching her I might be able to do it. She says she like the look somewhere between “hooker and housewife”. Her words, not mine. But she totally made me laugh. So if you’re in to fitness, trying to grow your business, you like make up and clothes, or you just like to laugh?…Go follow Chalene. You won’t regret it.
I’m here to tell you, the more into fitness I’ve gotten the more myself I feel after having kids. It’s like I found a part of me I never knew existed. It’s important to take care of yourself so that you can take care of your loved ones, so if your New Year’s Resolution was to lose weight and eat right, I’d love to be a part of the journey for you.
