Come and visit us at the Arnold!

I absolutely love this time of year and one of the biggest reasons is (you guessed it!) the opportunity to get to the Arnold! We're all going to be there and would love to see you so please pop by our booth! You'll see Tosca Reno, Jamie Eason, Elaine Goodlad, Lindsay Messina, Kim Dolan-Leto and others demonstrating various moves and chatting up a storm! It's always a blast and this year proves to be even better! Btw, bring ideas to our booth about what you'd like to see in Oxygen magazine or the Oxygen specials – we'd love to know your thoughts!

Off to the slopes!

I'm so revved up by the Olympics that I've convinced my kids to join me in an impromptu day skiing this weekend! My daughter Kate is worried her fancy snowboard goggles have gone missing and my son Drew is not looking forward to the early start! But I'm pumped – I simply can't wait to get out for some good runs and spend some time with my kids! Wish us luck! (I'll try and take some pics!) Talk to you next week!

Great abs are yours! (really)

Ok, so I admit it – we are having the best time putting together our next Oxygen Collector's Special Issue on Abs (out on newsstands April 6!). Keep your eye out for it! More on that next time we chat....

I love my gym time!

Wasn't the Super Bowl exciting? I'm so happy the Saints pulled it off! I love resiliency and determination – and they've spurred me on to new vigor in the gym! Today, for example, I'm heading in for my new total-body workout, the third part of it. And I know that the Captain's Chair will figure into it near the end. So, with trying to get my abs in tip-top shape, I'll be getting into the gym we have here at the office and doing my weights close to the Captain's Chair so I can hop on and finish my workout on the Chair. Hey, it's all about efficiency, right? As for stretching, I'm the absolute worst! If you have any ideas at all on how to fit stretching into a lunchtime workout, I'm all ears! Have a great week, stay as determined as the Saints to meet your goals, and we'll chat again on Friday!

"If I laugh, it hurts!"

Ok, I admit to the irony – we are in the midst of putting together our next Oxygen Collector's Issue devoted to abs and mine are so sore it honestly hurts to laugh (or cough)! What happened? I discovered the addition of a new piece of equipment here at our gym – the captain's chair! (Yes, we feel lucky to have an on-site gym for lunch hour workouts.) I couldn't resist – I had to try it out! Today, I'm paying the price for being overly enthusiastic – it honestly hurts to laugh (and I love to laugh!). In any case, I'll wait a while before doing my next abs workout. And if you have any stories to share about your own abs training, I'd love to know! (We can commiserate together!) Have a great weekend. We'll chat Monday.
