My Story Continued for the Lovers and Haters

My last blog really struck a chord. I was called everything from superficial, narcissistic to entitled in the comments. For some reason, my vacation pics from Hawaii were even brought up and used against me. I've never even posted them here on Mizzfit.com...yet! Also, my dogs are PUGGLES not pugs!!! I'm still trying to figure out how posting loving pictures of my dogs (who are basically my children since I have no kids) makes me a bad person with "no soul and depth". I think the person who left that comment definitely follows my personal Facebook page because I gotta admit, Shorty & Leroy get a lot of facetime on there. Love them! I just couldn't resist... But let me get on topic here. I realize that my last post was emotional. I was in the heat and thick of the moment. I also should've mentioned that Under Armour actually did hire me and contract me for the work I did. It wasn't a contest that I submitted a random video for and then got upset because I wasn't picked....

REJECTED by Under Armour

It's hard for me to write this as I'm pretty upset...so bear with me here. I have something I want to get out and I'm going to try my best to use the right words here. About a month ago I was contacted by Popsugar and Under Armour to be a part of the I WILL WHAT I WANT campaign. It's a very empowering campaign about overcoming obstacles to achieve what you want in life no matter what other people have to say. I was honored to receive the invitation to say the least, esp after watching Under Armour's Misty Copeland commercial. Under Armour's request was to make a short video sharing my story to show how I will what I want. And so I did. You can watch it below. Once I sent in the video, I did not hear from them for weeks. Popsugar kept making excuses for Under Armour but it was clear my story wasn't good enough for them. Perhaps it was because I mentioned the D-word (depression) or because I didn't wear their clothes in a sexy way. Perhaps it was because I was a little TOO...

Parting will be such sweet sorrow for me as New Balance has its last Girls' Night Out event of the summer in New York City this upcoming Thursday night. As the GNO host and emcee, it's been so much fun being a part of this genius movement and I'm happy to pass the baton off as #NBGNO heads west!

Share Your Healthy Place, Win Titan Tea!

Titan Tea, an amazing new tea drink, has asked me to share my favorite "healthy place" as part of their Healthy Place Contest, which you've got to enter! All you have to do is share a healthy spot you love to win a 1-year supply of Titan Tea! A huge score considering Titan Tea is my latest healthy indulgence (because it's electrolyte enhanced tea for active people and because the rasberry flavor rocks). Most of you know me as fitness lover and would probably guess that my go-to healthy place is in a workout class, right? Nope...although I do love myself a sweaty workout. My healthy place of choice is actually on my cruiser bike, riding through the streets of New York City. And what do ya know, I don't even wear workout clothes to ride! When I'm on my cruiser, I totally plug into the city and how it moves. You have to be really careful riding a bike in NYC because traffic and people getting out of parked cars are your worst enemy. Being alert and watching the city...
