For the past 17 years, SELF Magazine has been promoting women’s fitness during the annual Workout in the Park. This year promises to be better than ever with 17 different workout classes, including Kama Strength and LaBlast, to help women reinvent themselves into the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves that they can be. Famous fitness celebrities such as Allison Sweeney, author of The Mommy Diet, will also be at the workouts. Another new perk to this year’s schedule is that the Workout in the Park has added a new city to it’s tour: San Francisco, California.
Workout in the Park is more than just a fitness rally. Women from across the country meet up at the designated time and place to experience current trends in the fitness industry while also learning about the hottest beauty, health, and nutrition essentials that are in the market today. Even if it rains, nothing can put a damper on the Workout in the Park and the girl-power that it ignites in all of the participants.
A devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocked Christchurch, New Zealand this week, and since then two aftershocks have continued to leave the populous city scrambling for safety. According to ABC News, at least 65 people have died and dozens have been injured. Rescue efforts are under way.
While this isn’t news DietsInReview.com would ordinarily report, many Biggest Loserfans know that members of the show’s cast and crew have been in New Zealand for the past week filming for season 11, as Bob, Jillian and Ali have been tweeting about their adventures.
We reached out to our press contact for Biggest Loser and have received confirmation that everyone is safe. It appears they are a “good distance away from Christchurch” and were not affected.
While they are not affected physically, it is evident that the trio is using their position to help raise awareness for the people in New Zealand who have been.
Bob Harper posted on his Facebook page: “We are okay from the earthquake in NZ and we are praying for the families in Christ Church. Thank you for your prayers.” Read Full Post >
UPDATE: This episode will air again on July 28, 2011.
Tune in this Thursday, February 17, to Rachael Ray to catch Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney. Alison will be talking about her new book, The Mommy Diet, and sharing her best weight-loss tips for moms. Then, she’ll have to put her training to the test on Rachael Ray’s red carpet obstacle course.
To write The Mommy Diet, Alison got advice from top Hollywood trainers, nutritionists and doctors. The book includes nutrition, fitness and fashion tips for women who want to get pregnant, those who already are and new moms. Thursday’s episode will also feature a healthy recipe for a filling soup.
Tune in tomorrow, Thursday, February 10, to catch Alison Sweeney on The Doctors. Alison talks with the show’s panel about parenting and being a mom, so you can be sure you’ll get some great tips from The Mommy Diet. They even discuss the impact of being an overbearing parent. “‘Extreme’ is definitely a word I’d use to describe the ‘tiger mom’ and we definitely talk about that during the episode,” writes Alison in her blog.
Plus, this episode will feature 20 ways to look younger–no surgery needed! We’re intrigued to find out how “pumpkin can give you an instant face lift.”

Moms are a special breed. They do it all, and then some more, and rarely complain and hardly ever ask for anything in return. What happens in all of this psuedo-superwoman-esque-ness is that they give up a lot of themselves in order to care for a household, the children in it, the spouse, and the hundred other people and things that demand their attention each day.
Alison Sweeney is one of those moms. She has two kids, two jobs, an adoring husband, and, let’s be honest, what from the outside appears to be a pretty fabulous life. But brass tacks, she’s still a mom trying to do everything she can to maintain and manage. So, she wrote The Mommy Diet.
The book is supposed to help all these superwomen do it all AND do some for themselves, too. It’s all about getting fit and staying that way before, during and after pregnancy… even if it’s several years after.
I had a chance to speak with Alison about her new book, during a break from Biggest Loser 10 finale rehearsals. She’s excited about the book, and should be, because there’s a lot of information in there women… moms… need to hear.
