As we walked down the New York sidewalk Sunday afternoon, I moaned to my aunt Lori about how stressful it had been finding my way from Kennedy airport to my hotel in midtown Manhattan the night before. It was an endless saga involving hidden elevators, express buses that took their damn time and AirTrains that did not fly through the air but disappointingly looped around the airport terminals endlessly. Eventually I decided the price of a taxi was worth eliminating the chance of getting lost in New Jersey after midnight with only a box of soy protein bars and lip gloss for sustenance.
“So, you appeared on national television this morning without any anxiety, but it was traveling from the airport to the hotel that stressed you out?” my aunt asked incredulously.
“Um, yeah,” I replied. “I really hate traveling.”
Bizarrely enough, it’s true. I didn’t feel stressed at all during my 3 minute and 43 second stint on The Today Show for the same reason I didn’t feel stressed about running a half-marathon. I’d trained hard, I [...]

Thank you to everyone who has left comments and sent me emails about my appearance! However, those of you who have complimented my hair and make up should redirect your accolades to Joel and Hair-Guy-Who’s-Name-I-Didn’t-Catch who made me look more fabulous than I shall ever look again.
I shall write more about my New York adventure soon, and, oh yeah, get back to blogging about health and fitness too. Just as soon as I take a long, long, nap.

I answered my cell phone and the woman on the other line said, “Oh my God, you’re in the TiVo.”
“I know!” I exclaimed to my Aunt E. “Isn’t it crazy?” If you’ve got your TiVo remote handy, you can use it to search for The Today Show and set it to record the Sunday morning Mother’s Day show on May 11th. (ETA: Local air times vary. Check your listings.) I’ll be promoting my book and wearing an outfit that hopefully makes me look very slim. I’m set to appear on the same episode as Susan Sarandon. Do you think she’ll sing Rocky Horror songs with me in the green room?
My appearance has been planned for over a week, but I’ve been afraid to mention it for fear that it might not actually happen. God knows I could still get bumped if terrorists blow up the Brooklyn Bridge that day. And there’s still a paranoid part of me that wonders if I’ll get to the studio and they’ll decide I’m too fat to go on TV. [...]
