Jack LaLanne: Tribute to the Legendary Grandfather of Fitness

Posted on

As you may have already read on my Sugar Shock Blog, Jack LaLanne — who passed away yesterday — was one of my heroes.
Can you think of another man, who’s been as influential in the field of fitness?
And can you think of another person, who’s been as outspoken as he was on the dangers of sugar and refined carbs?
As I mentioned here, I’ve had the pleasure to interview Jack several times.
I encourage you now to listen to one of my interview with the enthusiastic, energetic Kind of Fitness and Sugar-Free Pioneer.
I conducted this interview with Jack LaLanne on May 1, 2008.
Listen now.

Hurrah! Computer Fixed!

Posted on

After a fabulous weekend getting inspired and exhilarated by the Hay House I Can Do It! Conference in Tampa and listening to such fabulous people as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Marianne Williamson, Robert Holden and Dr. Brian Weiss, I came back home to a tempermental computer.
Suffice it to say that a virus blasted my computer to smithereens.
Firefox wouldn’t stay open — it was shutting down often.
Sending emails was pretty much impossible.
In short, my computer was so sluggish, sputtering and malfunctioning that I was fearful it would just die in the middle of my Sweeter Holiday webinars/teleseminars.
So I had to make a tough decision. I had to cancel last night’s programs with Gift Guru Robyn Spizman and acclaimed hypnotherapist Steve G. Jones. Don’t worry: we’re rescheduling them. How awful it would have been if my computer had shut down in the middle of a program!
Heart-smiley-face-download For hours — I think it was five, maybe six or seven — my computer guy worked hard at fixing my computer.
He had to take out my hard drive, put in a new one, install a new Windows 7, move over all my data, including the book I’m writing (Beyond Sugar Shock for Hay House), set up my email account again, etc., etc.
Tadum! I’m now a very happy woman with a super fast computer that’s making it possible to get my work done so much quicker!
My computer guy says it’s now even better than now. And thankfully, I have lots more space, too, because I was running out of space, too!
So we’re back today for the Sweeter Holiday Summit. Join us tonight’s exciting programs at 6 pm Eastern with Steve G. Jones and 8 pm Eastern with Law of Attraction expert Eva Gregory.
Wondering what the Sweeter Holiday Summit is?
This event features 40 experts, whose mission is to help you thrive this holiday season.
SweeterHoliday_blog size 18 Sign up now at www.SweeterHoliday.com, and you’ll be able to listen to the fabulous program with the acclaimed FlyLady yesterday. (Thankfully, I was still able to hold that program before my computer got even worse. Stay tuned for a post about our fabulous webinar/teleseminar with her.)
Just sign up at www.SweeterHoliday.com, and you listen for FREE for 48 hours to all programs. If your schedule is hectic, don’t fret, because you can listen afterwards, at any time if you upgrade to the V.I.P. All Access Anytime Pass.
We’d love to have you join us. But hurry, becuase space is limited.
Please note that the figure is incorrect. We’re now having more than 30 experts — at present 40 Gurus in health, wealth, wellness, Feng shui, inner peace, finance, Law of Attraction, weight loss and more will help you to make this your best holiday season yet.
