Wow it’s been a very productive week which has made up for last week. Not that last week was unproductive just that I wasn’t in my usual happy place but I’m back there now and that’s where I plan to stay! I have had and continue to have so much going on, where do I even start??
I will start with my trip to the mailbox this morning. I opened the mail box to find the latest issue of Oxygen US edition! Which features my 4 page training spread on ‘How to skip your way to fat-loss’. I shot this in LA earlier this year over a long10 hr shoot just 2 days before the California Pro, and I have to tell you that skipping is not a laughing matter! It’s a really intense workout and an amazing way to burn calories, especially if you want to get out of the gym over summer or just for a change in your workout routine. After I did this shoot I could barely walk & I was competing the day after that. It was really crazy & I learnt the hard way that skipping is a very effective way to burn calories & shape up! This is the first time I have been featured in this the US edition of Oxygen mag so I am totally excited and looking forward to more of my shots from this photo shoot being featured especially a cover!
Dior-Rose turns 4 this Sunday the 19th December and as usual I have an extravagant outdoor party planned. But it has been raining for the past couple of days & is forecast to rain until next Wednesday! I’m not sure what to do because we have so many people coming and I don’t have hardly any of their phone numbers to postpone the party…. So it will go ahead rain or shine & I will have to put my extreme thinking to the test & come up with a way to make it work! I can’t believe she is turning 4! Time fly’s by so quickly which you really notice when you have children. I’m so glad we have spent so much quality time with them. I don’t ever want to look back and wish I had of done this and had of done that. The one thing you can never get back in life is time so I make sure I don’t waste a minute! I guess you could say I’m kind of impulsive, ok, I’m a totally impulsive person. If I have an idea I don’t really think it through I just do it. This strategy has worked really well for me over the past few years, put no limits on yourself and none get in your way!
You might have read on Face Book that I received another box of magazine covers that I shot early last year for Fitness Life Mag, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to give signed copies away to everyone who registers to my blog. As promised I will also be emailing one of you who have subscribed tonight to set a time & day for your free Skype consult. I wish I could call all of you, if I didn’t have to sleep it just might be possible!
I appreciate everyone taking the time to read my blogs, I hope you are enjoying them.

Hey Brent, I did that for my son's 5th Birthday in June and it was the muddiest Birthday Party you have ever been to! I didn't want to have to do it again but unfortunately it looks like I will have too :-(

I am so excited about all the success you are achieving. It is even more amazing that you are a mom who is attentive and are attending to Dior-Rose's party amidst all the other great things happening. I think it shows true character that you attend to the many fans of yours and create an atmosphere for friendship. I recall your need for a photographer when you came to Florida for the Ft. Lauderdale Cup and I suggested someone. It is good to have friends internationally. I don't think you are as impulsive as you might think you are. I would ascribe it to confidence and the Nike motto: Just Do It. Most people overanalyze what they want to do. You know in your gut what you need to do and DO IT---THE FORMULA FOR SUCCESS.
