Do you guys remember Haley - a former BR host and owner of XRNGFit. I did an interview with her about her time with BR and about her new company (if you didn't see the interview, it is here.
I follow her on FB as well as Emily Skye. They are both super gorgeous and have similiar looks to me. 
BR just did a post on their FB page about Emily Skye because her muscles were photo-shopped OUT of her picture taken for a magazine. Seriously?!?!? 

Anyways, what is with this new eyebrow trend that they both have? I don't think I like it, but I've seen it around magazines and even the nurse at my DR's office has these big triangular overly drawn in brows. LOL. Yuk. 

Haley seems au natural to me though meaning no surgeries (but certainly lots of make up. How come I can't where that much make-up and not look ridiculous?!) Emily - who often has some of the nicest and best advice posted on her FB page, looks like a plastic surgeon's dream. I could be WAY off, but her nose, breasts and butt all looks like the work of a surgeon (or maybe just God and she is blessed). It just looks that way to me. I always have a harder time following the advice of people who say - look what I achieved and you can too if you follow me, but then I went and had multiple surgeries because what I was doing wasn't enough. 
But that's just the way it comes across to ME. Emily also comes across (as well as Haley) super sweet.

Anyways, Zuzka posted something on her web-site about working out according to your body type. This is some of the sanest advice I have read from her in a while. She points out the differences in people's bodies and how it can affect form, and that not everyone's form is going to look the same, nor is it going to look like hers. SO TRUE! 
She asked for people's comments on what we all find difficult due to our body types.
I wrote in saying pistols are super hard with long legs, but eagle pose is not. :) 

Tuesday comes the first workout with Chris Tye-Walker with BR. I really think you guys will like his stuff! I'd love to hear what you guys think when BR posts it. 
I already had one reader mention she wouldn't do his workouts because he is male. I always liked male trainers better because in the past when I hired them, I needed someone who I felt could be a good spotter and could help me learn pull ups and push ups. 
I've only encountered one woman as a trainer who I LOVED because she could lift 2x the weight I could. 
I know, I'm being very sexist - sorry! 
I am also curious as to what BR is doing the rest of the week.
Chris is doing TWELVE weeks, but only one workout a week, so that's A LOT of down time with nothing from Lisa or anyone for that matter. I hope there is more to come than one workout a week for 12 weeks.


  1. I will try your cash out workout this evening!
    I agree with the make up/eyebrows of Haley and Emily, but it's a trend. A lot of my friends are sporting them, too, and admittedly I won't leave the house without my eyebrows drawn in (unless I'm walking my dog right before bed, lol). It's a trend. When I was a kid (relatively) it was Megan Fox's brows who "changed my life" as it were. Now I guess it's Cara Delevingne and all similar icons. Audrey Hepburn's brows are still my favorite.

    I don't understand the mindset of not doing someone's workouts because the trainer is male. A workout is a workout. Exercise is exercise. I personally think it's cool to get a different perspective, as it were. My running coach was male, taught me how to sprint like no one's business. To each their own, but I think it's silly and juvenile to not consider someone's effort or work valid on account of gender difference. Kinesiology is a science. Anyone can offer their knowledge on it. It's not like Chris is anyone's gynecologist (and even if he was --- hello, there are male gynecologists! I've had a male gynecologist. They're doctors. It's anatomy. Come on now).

    Anyway, that's my rant, lol. Happy Monday to you.

    1. Happy Monday to you too! Let me know how the cash out goes. :)
      I'm not liking the eyebrow trend at all. It looks cartoonish to me. I do LOVE Megan Fox's brows and I like Olivia Wilde's. If I could get mine to do that, I would! As far as a trainer goes, as long as they are stronger than me, I don't care if they are male or female. :)
