What Runs Lori on Good Day Sacramento

December 28, 2011

I’m officially a local celebrity… again?

Yesterday I appeared on Good Day Sacramento‘s morning show, showcasing What Runs Lori and a Paleo lifestyle- and how nutrition and exercise helped me lose 50 pounds.

It was quite an experience, let me tell you!

Amy Carabba contacted me letting me know they would love to have me on the show. Hmmm… Great!

But I had to make a lot of dishes to show the viewers. And by a lot, she meant a LOT. Hmmm… Great!

And it would be awesome to have it at the CrossFit gym I went to. Hmmmmmm… a little more difficult but… Great!!

So, 4 am Tuesday morning I woke up, prepped all the rest of the food I had worked on making the night before, and packed everything to head to the gym.

5:30 am my boyfriend (thank you for helping me!) and I arrived at the gym to set everything up- a long table and all the fixings. And nervously awaited Amy and the news crew to pull up in their fancy Good Day Sacramento van.

A few minutes later she was there, bubbly and bobbing around, with an exuberant amount of energy for that time of the morning, ready to rock and roll.

She prompted myself and the team of CrossFitters on how things would work and what would happen and what to do when. It was kind of nice having her dictate exactly the day’s events and not have to worry about anything. She was calm and such a sweet woman, making it an enjoyable experience for all of us nervous people.

Ready? Set? ACTION-

Segment 1

Segment 2

The whole experience was incredibly fun and slightly nerve-racking. Overall, I LOVED it. I didn’t really get a chance to talk or form any sentences that flowed (but each “hit” was SO rushed and busy!).

I’m planning more things to break my way into TV… and to have my own show on the Food Network.

I’m thinking Michael Simon and I will do some Iron Chef’ing together.

SO sad the picture was blurry!

Maybe Anne Burrell and I can be best buddies, judging the Worst Cooks in America…

Why yes, Anne, I'll take your food!

Tyler Florence and I will just cook.

I’ll creep around Morimoto

I'm not creepy... He's signing my book...

And Alton Brown, Guy, and I will travel the world in search of the BEST places to eat [healthy]. I can just picture it now…

Just you wait…

OMG, that Morimoto pic slays me… hahahahhahah! 😉

I love that someday I’ll be able to point to the TV and say “That’s my friend! We roomed together at Foodbuzz and she buys my peanut butter, and I love her!” <3

You are such a star! I can so see you on the food network.


Justine Duppong @ Life With Cheeseburgers December 29, 2011 at 4:07 AM

Lol I LOVE the shot with Morimoto–cracks me up! You are such a rockstar, good for you!

While you’re breaking into TV, my goal is just to finish my eating disorder recovery book. I am meeting with my editor today to go over some changes though, so I’m seeing a light in the distance!!

You look like a natural! And your food….oh man, it all looks so good. I have to ask you about your paleo muffins – what kind of tortilla did you use? I am still, three years later, looking for a good one!

OMG you’re famous!!! You were such a natural in front of the camera 🙂 Congratulations, what a major accomplishment!


Amber Shea @Almost Vegan December 28, 2011 at 9:07 AM

You did SO GREAT! Wow, that’s quite a spread you had to prepare. You spoke so well and you look INCREDIBLE! (I still want your arms, seriously…) I like how that lady totally let huge crumbs of food fall all over the place when she tried a bite. Were you kind of frustrated when they poked fun at your frittata? I think that might’ve annoyed me if I were you 😛 But anyway, what awesome exposure! I’m so proud of you! 😀
