Not only is today the day you can now buy Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure book in stores, I received a call from his office yesterday to ask if I would be available to come in today for a follow up video interview to the sugar experiment video. Fortunately I was free today so I agreed to stop by the office.
When I stop in, I like to bring some of my treats from my latest recipes so I unfortunately didn’t have any on hand as I left the last of my last batches at my parent’s house over Christmas. I made sure to leave work a little bit early so I could race down to the health food stores to pick up the supplies I needed to whip up a batch of Nanaimo Bars. Normally it’s best to make them a day ahead so they have time to properly chill in the refrigerator, but I didn’t have a chance to go to the store yesterday and so a few short hours in the freezer was going to have to make up for overnight in the refrigerator…hopefully.
I got all my ingredients ready, raced through the production of the Nanaimo Bars as quickly as possible and got them in the freezer while I got ready. They had asked me to bring a couple of solid colored shirts with no logos on them, which is a small problem for me, as the bulk of my non-work related wardrobe consists of printed t-shirts. If it’s got a funny saying or a logo I love to wear it. Plain stuff is just too boring to me, so I had to make a special trip to the store.
When I arrived, I was greeted by Jorge’s assistant, Michelle, but was told Jorge wasn’t yet back and would probably be delayed a few minutes. She was excited I brought by some more of my Nanaimo Bars and we put them in the refrigerator to keep them cold while I waited for the few minutes before Jorge and his camera crew arrived. We then picked a color from the shirts selection I brought and then went outside to film an update to the sugar experiment video where Jorge asked me a bunch of questions like what I thought during the experiment, how I’ve been since the experiment, and some of my experiences from being on the Belly Fat Cure and keeping it up for the rest of the year. He also asked me to share a couple of tips that have been some of my secrets to success. And a couple of stories along the way.
I don’t know what all will make it into the video that gets pieced together from the footage, but it was a fun follow up for a program that’s literally made me 25% smaller than I was when I started the program. And once we wrapped up Jorge had to run because it was just a few minutes before he was to be appearing live on UStream.com’s main page as a featured live video to celebrate the release of the Belly Fat Cure book. Hopefully soon, I’ll be able to share the new video here on my blog. Stay tuned as they say. You might be seeing more of me in Jorge Cruise’s work soon.
