Making the testimonial for rev abs part 2

Well , Happy New Year:) I cannot wait to party hard tomorrow night, but in the meantime, I thought I would tell you all about the filming and photo shoot for the rev abs testimonial.

The whole thing took place at a studio on the West side, and I showed up right on time. The first thing I had to do was get into the outfit I originally wore for the before shoot. I am happy to say the sports bra was so big, we had to clip it in back with clips. Yay! Then on to hair and makeup (a ponytail, and light daytime makeup) for the photo shoot, with a white wall background. Several poses in the sports outfit, then on to the "too tight jeans" from the before shoot. They were nice and baggy so we took some photos of me pulling them out and showing the space between the jeans and me :) Then it was time to take my hair down and head upstairs to wardrobe to pick out some new tops for my rev abs testimonial. This was fun. I tried on all colors and fabrics of tanks, and tees, and we finally decided on a pink polka dotted cotton tank. I was already to go, my makeup touched up and when I got in front of the lights, it turns out the tank was see-thru. So.....

Back to wardrobe to find another choice. Our final decision : a fuschia Stella McCartney for Adidas sports bra..cute!

The interview lasted about 20 minutes, and covered my experience with rev abs, what I wanted out of the program, and how it changed me. I was honest, and although it was hard not to get too emotional , I held back until the very end, when the tears slipped out. I cannot wait to see if I "make the cut" and am included in the infomerical. I sure hope I am. If not, the only thing that matters is how much it changed my life.

How has it been since the program ended. I am not going to lie. It has been difficult, and I have cheated somewhat on the carbs end. I had a turkey burger, and ate half of the roll!! Also, I broke down and had some ice cream last night (friendly's peppermint, yum).

Tomorrow I am having a huge gourmet meal, but then back to the 5 meal a day , low carb plan come the 1rst! Also, I will be using this blog as a food diary as well as an exercise diary.

SO hang in there, and Happy New Years!! I will be back with photos from our After Party! And my story of my shopping spree #1 as well as the exercises from rev abs....

You look so great that you should get included in the infomercial. But you're right, the most important thing is what the program did for your life.
