A few weeks ago, Mr. G and I got to film a fun commercial for America First Credit Union that aired during the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead. It was hysterical and strange to see Mr. G transform into a zombie. He was perfect for the role. Anyway, I've already shared the 30 second spot that aired, but here is the extended version where you get to see more of how hilarious Greg's zombie is. The teams from Avalanche Studios and Mighty Clever did such an awesome job!
YOU GUYS!!!! (Sorry for yelling, I just am really enthusiastic about this.) If you are like me and need some structure get you motivated to workout, look no further than Kayla Itsines's 12 Week Bikini Body Guide! The workouts are 28 minute circuit workouts (4 circuits, 7 minutes each), 3 days a week. The other 3 days a week, you do low intensity cardio for 35-45 minutes.
Kayla is an Australian trainer that gained major attention via Instagram. She has over 2 millions followers and is nearing cult leader status. I personally have gulped down the Kool-Aid and I am so thankful. I have been doing her workouts for nearly 5 weeks now I and have already noticed some major results. I'm not even half way done! Mr. G has even noticed. I thought I'd share some of my progress. No progress photos yet, because I'm shy.
The circuits are no joke. They are challenging, but so worth it. I definitely modify things, because I'm still no Hercules, but that's also what I love about the workouts, is that I can modify them for my level. You can also just do them at home, which is convenient. Unless you have a dog like Daisy that wants to lick-attack you every time you are on the floor trying to do some sit-ups then to the gym with you!
Now, you can buy both the workouts and a healthy food guide. I only purchased the workout (because I wasn't ready to say no to chips) and it was just over 50 US dollars (the prices on her website are in Australian $). Also, I notice that when I'm working out regularly, I naturally eat better (justification for not doing a food guide). I'm sure I would have quicker results if I was more strict about food and a little better with my cardio training (I've missed some days), but I don't wanna stress about it, because I still wanna enjoy life. Plus, chips.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this in case anyone needed something to get them up and going. If this skinny-fat weakling can do it, so can you!
This Saturday I'm performing in a benefit concert and you should come! It's at Orem High School and you have two chances to see it that evening. It features some of the most talented people in Utah. Seriously, these folks have been on Broadway, in national tours, recording artists, So You Think You Can Dance alum, local favorites, etc..... I'll be singing one of my favorite songs from She Loves Me, Will He Like Me.
The best way to get tickets is beforehand (like most other events). It's cheaper in advance and you avoid the long lines to purchase tickets at the door. You can go to THIS WEBSITE to buy them.
Funds received from tickets purchases go to awarding students scholarships to pursue further education in the arts, all in the name of my beloved high school drama teacher, Syd Riggs who passed away suddenly in 2005. She is the reason why so many of us Utah performers are where we are today.
