PODCAST Episode 60!! The Birthday Edition or "It's My Party and I'll Call Biggest Loser 'Porn' If I Want To"

Hola Darlings, It's my BIRTHDAY!

We're gonna party like it's my birthday.

That means a NEW episode of the podcast and the announcement of a NEW PODCAST. WHAT? YES!

First off, there's the latest edition of Nacho Mama's Podcast, wherein I discuss whether or not the Biggest Loser is "Weight Loss Porn"- yep, I'm totally going there. Listen here!

Current Health Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with NachoMamasPodcast on BlogTalkRadio

And THEN....drumroll please!

On August 1st, Margo of Brooklyn Fit Chick and I will be launching a NEW PODCAST! Yes, you asked for it! Based on the amazing response to our impromptu "The movie of  Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil sucks compared to the book" discussion during our Fitbloggin Recap show, we are proud to announce:

Yes, I'll now be offering not one, but TWO podcasts for your listening enjoyment!

Our first "Book VS Movie" will, of course, be Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Because there's so much, much more to say!

Keep up with the podcast here or on our Facebook page, where we'd love to hear your favorite "Books VS Movies". 

Off to celebrate my 41st, lovelies. THANK YOU ALL for making 40 such a special year.

Wishing you love with extra cheese-

VIDEO: A Day on Simply Filling / Simple Start

Hola Amigos!

You asked for it, and here it is-an entire day's food on Simply Filling. This would also qualify as "Simple Start", FYI.

UPDATE: Had my employee weigh-in this morning and, after only 3 days on Simply Filling, I'd lost TWO of the three pounds I gained at Fitbloggin! YAY! I'd still like to lose another 4-5 pounds this summer, so I'm sticking with SF/SS for the time being.

But the godchildren, tho. #VIDEO

So here's the thing, I've said it before but it bears repeating:

I have the most beautiful and talented godchildren on the planet. If you have godchildren of your own, I pity you. You will never know the joy of being godmother to perfect children. Sorry 'bout it.

Okay, I say children, but two out of three of them are now old enough to vote. 

If you're new to this blog, you might have missed the hautingly entertaining "Little Red Riding Hood" video made by Halisia, my oldest godchild.

Now her sister has burst on to the Youtube scene with this gem-This is my goddaughter Mielle playing ALL the parts of this brass quintet. Last year she played in a little affair called the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Perhaps you've heard of it?

Boo-ya. You're welcome, internet.

Wishing you love with extra cheese,

Yep, it's that time of year again...time to do the podcast where we break down EVERYTHING that went down at this year's Fitbloggin, otherwise known as "WHEN MARGOS COLLIDE".
Fitbloggin: the ONLY conference big enough for both Margos
Once again, Margo of Brooklyn Fit Chick and I discuss ALL things Fitbloggin 2014: the sessions, the food, the drag queens and yes, the ghosts (it was Savannah after all).

Maybe you weren't there. Or maybe you were there and couldn't take advantage of EVERYTHING Savannah and Fitbloggin had to offer. But between us, WE COVER EVERYTHING. Well, almost everything. We left out the lunch with RunDisney. Getting to meet running legend Jeff Galloway (some Fitbloggers even got to run with him!). We left out the flash mob.

And the fact that I FINALLY got to meet Fat Girl VS World (spoiler alert: the fat girl wins).

Here's just a teeny peek at what went down.

-Follow Margo's adventures at Brooklyn Fit Chick

-Check out Margo's AWESOME Youtube Channel!

-The Fitbloggin site: learn how to attend next year and read liveblogs from past sessions

-Liveblog of Margo's Fitbloggin session!

-Liveblog of Sue and Steve's "Tough Love" session

-CLUB ONE (the legendary drag home of the Lady Chablis)

-Send Club One some twitter love!

-The Pink House

-Learn more about Jim Williams (the central character of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)

Can you tell we had fun? Dang, now I want fried green tomatoes.

The Numbers: I got FREE Health Screenings from Walgreen's & so can YOU!'s hot in San Diego (not SAVANNAH hot, but I'm a huge wimp when it comes to heat.). That's why I decided to just shoot a video sharing the results of the FREE health screenings I got from Walgreens, a sponsor of Fitbloggin. YOU can get FREE health screenings, too, by visiting Walgreens' "Way to Well" tour when it comes to YOUR town! For details, click HERE.

IMPORTANT NOTE: That weigh-in was a HUGE wake-up call (as you can imagine) LOTS more water, veggies and exercise meant that I only ended up gaining about 2.5 pounds from Fitbloggin. 

Don't miss my annual FITBLOGGIN RECAP PODCAST with Margo of Brooklyn Fit Chick! It will broadcast live tomorrow at 3pm Pacific HERE, or you can catch it later by searching for "Nacho Mama's Podcast" on iTunes or Stitcher.

Do you know YOUR numbers?

"What I Didn't Say" aka "the one where Steve & Sue make me cry" #JustTrollin

WARNING: this is a long one, folks.

Yes, I still have more Fitbloggin posts to write. Recaps of the conference in general (which I'll probably do on the podcast) and sharing my experiences in Savannah. But before I do, there's some unfinished business I have to take care of. Stick with me, I'm...
I was really lucky in that I pretty much loved all the sessions I attended during Fitbloggin. Having years of experience at this blogging business has helped me hone my "session-picking" skills at these types of events, so I rarely end up feeling as though my time was wasted. That doesn't mean that every session was a barrel of laughs or a wealth of data. Sometimes the most valuable sessions are the ones that force you to take a good, hard look at yourself. "Fitblogger Tough Love" was such a session.
