Fitness Magazine dug this photo. Its the one they selected as a finalist for the Face of Fitness contest. Please vote for me here, and pass it along. You can vote daily! My friend Marisa Train took this photo. http://photos.fitnessmagazine.com/face-of-fitness-contest/16/2011/38?esrc=nwphotofaves_fitcover

So I heard Fitness Magazine, which I love, was having a “Face of Fitness” contest. On a lark, I submitted some photos late last week. Monday morning I got an email that I’m a finalist for this week. (Every week of the contest they have several finalists). What a great way to kick off the week!

Guess they really dug my Yoga photos. (That’s all I really had to send in, plus a headshot, so that’s what I did).

If I win the week’s contest, I win $250. If I win the overall competition, there’s a Hawaii vacay and a photoshoot on tap. Wow!

So if you have a moment, please click through and vote for me. I’m currently in 38th place in the “Readers’ Choice” portion of the contest. I was #145 yesterday!

I told my friend Katherine to submit her pic, too, and she did. Get this–She’s also a weekly finalist. Woot! Vote for her, too, while you’re at it. You can vote for us daily 🙂 through April 24th.

Direct Link to Vote for me is here.

And feel free to re-post, Facebook, “like,”  Tweet, and all that jazz. That would be really awesome!

Thanks so very much!

On the food front, I have a fast, easy, and delicious recipe I’m posting very soon; it’s quite healthy and fun as well, so stay tuned.

Hey Gang!

If you need some Yoga to help sweat out those Valentine’s Day sweets, and you live in the New York City area, today might just be your lucky day, a true Wellness Wednesday:

A month of UNlimited Yoga at ISHTA Yoga in Manhattan is on offer via Groupon. For $30. Yeah, you read right: 30 bucks!

I’ve yet to try out ISHTA, but it’s been on my list of “must-try” studios for awhile. Now I’m IN to check it out.

I dug around on their website and elsewhere online, and I like the following:

  • They have lots of class options throughout every day. Even random times, like mid-afternoons.
  • The Union Square location is convenient.
  • The reviews I’ve read are quite good.
  • Several teachers I’ve been meaning to try out teach there.
  • One class at a typical Yoga studio can cost $15 to $20. Dunno about you, but this can put a serious dent in my budget. The opportunity to take unlimited classes for the cost of two classes is awesome. And to do this for a MONTH? Wow!
  • Not ready to do this? It’s okay, you have until July 17, 2011, to activate the coupon.

This is about as much vetting as I can do short of checking the place out myself. Sooo. . . .
