Can't See the Silver Lining? How to Conquer Disappointment.

- This is a guest post by Pam Wilson -


I am a glass-half-filled kind of girl.

No matter the situation I can find the silver lining. It’s not that I spin the facts-I just prefer to emphasize the positive if I can. Recently I had a crushing disappointment that I wasn’t expecting. It wasn’t a health crisis and everyone was okay. I say that because if it was a health crisis or something was seriously wrong I would have handled it differently.

Here's what got me down.

I had written a piece for a locally produced show and had made it through the initial round of cuts. I then had to audition the piece in front of the four women producing the show. When I first found out about the show, I was wary. I had a history with two of the women and I wondered how impartial they could be. However, as time went on, I got excited about the project and was looking forward to my callback for the audition.

My sister, nephew, daughter and friend Jenny helped me...

A Tale of Two Fitness Interns. What It's Like Working for MizzFIT, Sweat and All.

Wondering what a fitness internship is all about? MizzFIT Interns, Katia & Caroline, spill the sweaty beans!

Hi! We’re Katia and Caroline, but have also come to be known as “The Interns.” This winter, we were fortunate enough to be matched with Bianca Jade for a winter externship, a program of very short internships created by Cornell University’s Office of Career Resources. The goal of the program is to give current undergrads opportunities to explore different career fields and network with the university’s huge alumni population. Our time with Bianca at MizzFIT was particularly extraordinary because we’re both huge fitness, health, and fashion lovers! So what better way for us to spend a cold winter break than researching and collaborating with Bianca in a trendy startup office building where originality and entrepreneurism shoot off the walls!

Lindsey Vonn Talks Fitness Fashion and Running. But Will Her Romance with Tiger Woods Last?

I interviewed Olympic Ski Racer Lindsey Vonn who couldn't have been sweeter or more sporty chic in person. (Yes, that's me--the short one--with her in the pic above.)  She may be the apple of Tiger Wood's eye right now but based upon what she told me, she's in love with fitness fashion. Check out my interview with Lindsey Vonn and weigh in on whether you think her relationship with Tiger will make him a changed man. 

*** Lindsey Vonn Talks Fitness Fashion ***

ME: Lindsey, when you're getting ready to train or hit the gym, how do you put your fit look together?

Lindsey Vonn: I'm really obsessed with color coordinating everything. So head to toe, it has to match with my bag...with my shoes...with everything. I love Under Armour's tank tops because they allow you to double up. I love neon colors. 

ME: What do you feel the most comfortable wearing for your hardest workouts?

Lindsey Vonn: I generally wear short shorts to the gym because I feel...

Tone It Up Girls Care More About Being Normal Than Being On TV; Will Always Have Their Blog.

Normal or Not?

Before I met them, I'd never guess that Karena and Katrina from Tone It Up would be anything close to normal. For crying out loud (as my Grandma would say), they're beach babes! They probably walk down the street with an entourage of hecklers and panty-shot prone photographers. Could these girls, featured in countless magazines and known online globally as the Tone It Up Girls, really be normal?

That's what I wanted to find out because word on the fitness scene was that Bravo had been scouting them for a show. Luckily, I got to meet and hang with Karena and Katrina over the summer and find out more about their journey, including how they found each other and where they're going next. I interviewed them on the red carpet at Pedal On The Pier in Santa Monica...

...and then spent a weekend with them as part of Oakley Women's Perform Beautifully experience in Napa Valley, California.
