*not my actual boob, the dumb lady
** not my actual garden, that needs water and I always forget
ps: I recommend the Candlelight Yoga class with Caroline Cardino at Yummy Yoga. It can be very challenging but I always feel bendy and strong the next day.

In other news:
I read that the Federal Trade Commission is about to regulate bloggers that review any goods or services. What else can a blogger review, their own toenails? (If so, i give them 3 stars.) They will fine up to $11,000 bloggers who do not disclose any gifts or discounts provided by the company being reviewed. I am disclosing that the only gift that I received from Pop Physique was the ability to pet the new kitten that was hanging out in the studio. I love cats..especially baby ones.

Pop Physique knows how to market its studio. The pictures of the model on the sight are borderline inappropriate for work. Those tight buns in booty shorts will make you envious! Drop in classes are a steep 20 bucks but for $100 as a first time client you get 30 days of unlimited classes. I could go everyday if I wanted…to every class! Surely then I will be in SICK SHAPE! The wallpaper in the studio has awesome burlesque fishnet legs in a pattern that you wouldn’t notice unless you were staring at the wall so hard while gripping a ballet bar and working hip muscles you didn’t know you had. The class is an hour and works literally every muscle using a combination of weights, a playground ball and the ballet bar. From what I understand, there was a lass named Lotte Berk who invented this glorious torture. Many women who were inspired by her started studios all over the country. You may have heard of The Bar Method or seen the late night infomercials for Fluidity. Pop Physique is a variation on the same theme. I did Fluidity a long time ago when I saw posters in Bally Total Fitness in NYC that said, “Do you want to lose 10-20 lbs and have a dancer’s body?” Umm, YES! I auditioned and got into a FREE one time only program where I had to take before and after pictures for an infomercial. There are some of those pictures of me somewhere…. We took Fluidity 3-5 days a week, had a running coach force us to run in Central Park twice a week and were put on the South Beach Diet. I went from a size 8 to a size 2 in 4 months. It was crazy. We had public weigh-ins and even though I got that teeny tiny, I wasn’t in sick enough shape for the infomercial. That was fine by me; the only infomercial I want to be in is the one for my own line of Swedish Meatballs. Thankfully, Pop Physique is not trying to get anyone into any infomercials, commercials, or information booths. I just finished my third class this week and my body already feels different. I am slightly more flexible and my abs are tighter! I am hooked!

I am a comedy writer/performer from NYC who recently moved to Los Angeles. I am the test subject in my own exercise experiment. I want to look like the teachers of my fitness classes. They are all in SICK SHAPE! I have been in sick shape before but that was literally from getting sick. Four years ago I had a cold that laid me up for three weeks and I got down to a size zero. I booked a small role on Law and Order right after that. What a cruel world. I want to be healthy (cold free), eat well and workout because it’s good for my mind and body, plus my extensive collection of polyester pantsuits will look way better with six-pack abs. Right, ladies! In NYC, I went to several different gyms and studios to take classes. When I moved to LA this year, I decided to be commitment free when it comes to my workouts. I want to take classes everywhere, take advantage of “first time client” discounts and find the best fit for me to get fit. I will write about my experiences and my progress towards the goal of getting into SICK SHAPE.
