Last week I was in NYC for business and my All-Pro Diet co-author and Atlanta Falcon Tony Gonzalez and NY Jet Tony Richardson invited me to their NFL Play 60 Event in Central Park. The two Tony’s were working with a group of girls at the event to promote 60 minutes of daily activity and healthy eating to kids. As I was standing on the sideline watching, I see this petite but full of fire gal getting the girls to do push-ups- then I realize…it’s Biggest Loser trainer, Jilian Michaels! Let’s just say, her station had the girls working the hardest and it was a pleasure to meet her briefly.
It was a gorgeous day in NYC and I love the energy surrounding the movements to get Americans to eat higher quality food and move more! With Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and Michelle Obama’s White House Garden it is wonderful to see so many people championing healthy eating and exercise. Obviously, we have a lot of work to do and the more people sending a positive message the better.
After my fun time in Central Park, Tony G invited me to lunch with him and the publisher, Joe Connelly, from Veg News at Franchia Teahouse and Restaurant. I had some delicious green tea, food and dessert. What a fun day!
