It’s week four and our Image Gal, Samantha von Sperling, has good news – the weight is coming off!
I’ve been working hard to drop 20, and it’s starting to pay off. I’ve lost eight pounds. How did I do it? Well my trainer Scott Bitterman of Emerge Athletics’ workouts are literally kicking my butt (and hips and thighs) to the curb. Then there’s my diet. I’m eating a lot of vegetables – all day long – and lots of vegetable protein. I’ve pretty much eliminated starchy carbs from my diet. For lunch today I sautéed asparagus, broccoli, grape tomatoes and garlic with a drizzle of live oil, a splash of white wine and fresh herbs that I tossed with whole wheat pasta and mini prawns (shrimp works too). I sprinkled my plate with SENSA and sat down to enjoy lunch.
Things got a little more challenging as I made my way to the launch party for the new hair care line GATSBY from Jerseylicious star Gayle Giacomo, owner of The Gatsby Salon. Held at DROM Fragrances, everything was pink and sparkly, and even though I wore a sequin top to the festivities I felt somehow under-blinged!
Guests, including me, got to sit with a drink while one of the Jerseylicious team of stylists teased and sprayed our hair with the new products. I liked the results; of course the true test is what happens when I use the product with my own skills. Product review to follow soon … stay tuned!
Like I mentioned, there were drinks and aps, as there would be at any Jerseylicious fete. But I’m on a mission. Scott had suggested eating before I got to the event, so I wouldn’t be starving and scarf down mini-pizzas! I followed his advice (more veggies), and it worked. I had sparkling mineral water during the night but no drinks or snacks! That’s how I’m making sure I make my goal! Two weeks to go!
Gayle will officially release her quality hair care line across the U.S. in April 2012. Catch her and the gals in action on Jerseylicious Sundays at 8 p.m. on Style Network.
