Set your DVRs, Just Stoppers! On Monday, April 23rd, I will be appearing on The Today Show, on which I’ll be helping to promote my friend Joy Bauer’s new book, Joy Fit Club: Cookbook, Diet Plan and Inspiration, which I happen to be featured in. As of the time of this posting, I’m scheduled to appear during the Kathie Lee and Hoda hour of the show with Joy and 2 other Joy Fit Club members who are also featured in the book.
This one-of-a-kind cookbook and inspirational guide to healthy living is filled with motivational stories (including mine!), satisfying recipes (including one of mine!), and strategic meal plans. It also offers amazing encouragement and real-world advice for anyone looking to reach their healthiest, happiest weight. It is seriously my honor to have been involved with this project.
And no, this is not a paid endorsement – none of us Joy Fit Club members who participated in the book received any compensation and instead participated as a way to share our stories in hopes of inspiring others who may be facing the battle of the bulge.
Since appearing on The Today Show the first time, I have been lucky enough to not only stay in touch with Joy Bauer, but also to become her friend. Her commitment to health and well-being is truly such an inspiration. And all of her advice is grounded and healthy – and also (most important) highly do-able. But don’t take my word for it. You can “Look Inside” the book at your local bookstore or even on Amazon.
I will absolutely document my latest Today Show adventure with pics and insider details in a future post. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy a few behind-the-scenes pics from my first appearance (November of 2009):
I made it my #1 goal to crack Joy up whenever I could (even going as far as to
enter the studio acting like I thought I was there for a segment on modeling).
Mission accomplished (in regard to making Joy laugh)!
I hope you’ll watch the show as it airs live (or set your DVRs) on Monday, April 23rd for The Today Show’s Kathie Lee and Hoda hour on NBC. I promise I’ll be thinking of all of you (who continually inspire me with your amazing posts, comments and feedback!) when on the show. And I sincerely mean that.
