MizFit & The Ellen Show!

Tue, Jun 21, 2011

MizFit Muzings

Subtitle: why YES. we are at this again!


Ok, People.

If youve been reading MizFit for more than a week youve already discovered I like for my life to be filled with levity.

Im so excited about our FIT STANLEY and his potential for humorous & *random* FIT’ventures.

Yet I longed for more.

I salivated for some silliness.


As a result Im re- launching the crusade below.

A blatant ripoff spoof of the creative tatics Ellen employed to get on the cover of O Magazine.

Will it serve to get our Healthy Living tribe on her show?

Will we ever dance our way across her stage whilst simultaneously getting our PLAYouts on doing lunges?

Only time will tell.

More importantly, however, Im enjoying the PROCESS.

(oooh is she linking this all back to fitness? can she pull this one off??)

Sure the end destination (be it weight loss, marathon completion, or career goal) is important, but it’s equally important, in my passionate opinion, to enjoy at least *some* facet of the journey there.

Now, without further rambling adieu, I share with you Ellen, my house guest.

First I invited her to breakfast. Ellen adored my protein pancakes. I mean really though-whats not to love?

Then we worked out. I was kind enough to lend her my skates & I used the Tornado’s pink Barbie ones.

Since she was a *celebrity* house-guest she got to use the best blanket in the domicile.


The first morning we went out to Starbucks for coffee. Who knew Ellen liked iced coffee on a cold morning just as I do!

After coffee it was time for a run. Even though I love having visitors I can not deviate from my running routine.


The next morning we decided to just stay home and drink MizFitMade java.

I was happy to see Ellen was an early riser just like I am!


And yes.

I know youre wondering if I dragged The Ellen into my wacky ways & compelled her to eat healthy while she was visiting.

The answer? Below.

Ellen didnt love the goo’ness of the Chia, but after I gave her some tips she seemed to think she and Portia might actually use it!


I was secretly thrilled that, since Ellen was in town, I had an excuse to skip a day of running outside for some indoor treadmill work.

I dont think she was as excited.

The rest of our day was spent shopping, getting mani/pedis and just hanging out.

Morning came quickly & it was time to get up again and prepare my visitor some breakfast which I must say she ADORED.

At least I she said she did.

Then it was back to the gym, again, since it’s peak training season up in herre.


(We cant forget the obligatory BLOOPER REEL either. That’s what I get for grabbing a total stranger and asking her to film me. Duly noted. I need an intern. Any takers?)

And that, oh faithful readers, is what Ellen & I have done together thus far.

(and YES. I do still have some tricks up my lackofsleeve which shall be coming your way soon. *cough* Ellen SWIMMING!*cough*)

Have any thoughts on how I might best entertain my visitor?

Wanna link this post on your blog?

Entirely cut & paste & steal it in hopes someone at the show might take a glance?

Have the tiniest of contacts at The Ellen Show you wanna send my way?

Please to hit us all up in the comments.

  10. Sara says:

    I will fight Erica for the intern position.
    We can do it long distance right? LOL.

    Thank you for the morning giggles, too.
    If anyone can get us all in an Ellen show audience it is you.

  15. Nicole says:

    Miz this is great! I KNOW that you will be on the Ellen Show one day! I have NO doubt! plus how can she ignore this?? :)

  16. Miz says:

    and you KNOW Im not joking that we just enjoy the process up in herre.
    That said, we lost more than one Ellen when she join in the SLIP N’SLIDE fun.

    She disintegrated.

    Much to the Tornado’s delight, errr, CHAGRIN.

    Definitely chagrin :)

  17. Kris @Krazy_Kris says:

    OK - she must have mamma chia - I wonder if SHE thinks it tastes like wine… I think she would have VERY fun commentary….
    UH - YES - you need an intern. Someone to follow you around and film just about everything because SO much is funny without our thinking its gonna be, and we have the presences to ask someone to snap.
    But in all seriousness - she will adore you - because you’re unapologetically yourself and THAT is the point of it all.

  18. Karyn says:

    I love Ellen!!!!

  19. Karen@WaistingTime says:

    Should we start a twitter campaign?

  20. anne h says:

    I’ll film you…..I’m very good at holding the camera!
    I get better after about a dozen takes!

  21. Jeannie says:

    Well, who would turn the humorous Mizfit down? You crack me up! :)

  22. Greta says:

    Girl you need an intern!
    That blooper reel was a blooper.

    Where can I apply?

    Love your Ellen escapades, too.

  23. Yvonne says:

    OMG we could all sit in the audience with big Ellen cardboard faces in a stick!

    Or a Mizzy face ;)

    Thank you for the smiles.

  24. Jody - Fit at 53 says:

    I am in the area of Ellen - I will be your assistant! :-)

    Honestly, I have sent her a few emails about you & links to your posts that I thought she might like. Looks like she will be getting this one from me too! And then I could meet you!!!! Heck I have written her about myself but you are way more entertaining & interesting with this great post - she MUST bring you on!

  25. Shannon says:

    Ellen is back! You are an amazing host ;) For more adventures you should definately include tiaras and the Tornado. Your Ellen moments are some of my favorite I am excited to see what you have in store.

  26. biobabbler says:

    I’d say when in Rome… you are in Austin, so some v. cool (outdoor?) musical event would be good… =) Maybe cowboy-hat -clothes shopping to switch things up re: her (relatively static, not that there’s anything wrong with that) outfit? =)

  27. Wendy says:

    WOOT. I love you. I love Ellen. I love our supportive group.
    Let’s show Ellen how it’s done;)

  28. juliejulie says:

    Can Ellen dance while rollerskating? I don’t think she’d like roller derby, too much pushing, and those tough ladies can be a bit rude, but I do see her as a strong roller-dancer (is that hyphenated?) or perhaps a roller-waitress at a drive-up diner. If we all go to the show, do we have to wear skates? I could, it’s just that I’m not sure I can do lunges while skating. Maybe I could practice. Miz, could you make us a how-to video on roller-lunging? We could all learn and then maybe do a Flash-Mob roller dance for Ellen!

  29. Ava says:

    Ellen taped to a treamill is classic, Mizzy.

  30. Irene says:

    LOL! Another reason I love you. And Ellen. It better work. We’ve been praying on this for a while now.

  31. tj says:

    Man you better get yer tush on that show soon! lol Hey I kinda sounded like you for a second! HAHA :)

  32. Deb says:

    ONLY Ellen would pack a tuxedo to wear at your house (so formal, yet so casual while running!) We might need to show up bearing appropriate attire present for her!

    That said, this reintroduction of the Ellen campaign is charming. (but maybe you’d be better suited for the new show coming out: The Chew. Oh wait, that’s me!)

  33. Jen, a priorfatgirl says:

    Ellen needs to recognize! :)

    The power of the online healthiness community is a force to be shared!

  34. Eve says:

    Big old EEEW to those sausage things Miz.

    Poor poor Ellen. You eat gross stuff.

    I vote you take her out for some Texas BBQ!

  35. Kerri O says:

    YAY! There has been an appalling lack of silly around here. This time, I just know we’ll get their attention!

  36. Kristina @ spabettie says:

    haaa - love the rollerskating and the chia!! happy she loves the iced coffees too, that’s all I drink, no matter the weather.

    blooper reel almost made me choke on my coffee… :D

  37. Runner Girl says:

    You need more than getting on Ellen, Miz, if that’s the best blanket in the house :)

    Love this and you.

  38. JourneyBeyondSurvival says:

    Me! Me! Pick me!!! It only takes me three months to get used to new technology, and if I commit to start today, only a year to get used to the idea of using it beforehand. :)

    On the other hand, moving, leaving behind family everyday? Bah. When can I start?

  39. Fit Chick in the City says:

    Oh my goodness, you are hilarious!! Love it!

  40. Cammy@TippyToeDiet says:

    I’m beginning to wonder if you might want to take Ellen to visit your therapist. :) Or maybe just out for a donut.

    FUN can cure a lot of ills, can’t it?

  41. KCLAnderson (Karen) says:

    I see you on the Ellen set…so very clearly in my mind! You and Ellen, together, and you’re both laughing and….dancing!! You’re shaking your booty with Ellen!! That’s what I see! ;-)

  42. Mere says:

    You are cracking me up with this over on Twitter too.

    Does Ellen follow you??

  43. Annelies says:

    Laughing out loud. Who knew Ellen is so very flexible and adaptable to her surroundings? Love it.

  44. charlotte says:

    Man I wish I had some media contacts with which to help you because this needs to happen! You + Ellen would be sheer awesomeness. I so want this to happen for you!! Will be brainstorming ideas of ways we can get Ellen’s attention…

  45. Dr. J says:

    Take Ellen to have a complete physical, for some reason, she is looking less healthy to me.

  46. Rhonda says:

    I love this!!!

  47. Andrea@WellnessNotes says:

    It’s going to happen. I just know it!!!

    Oh, and not to sound creepy, but you were in my dream the other day. We did all sorts of cool things together (sort of like you and Ellen). It was very weird… But you were super cool! :)

  48. Connie says:

    Did you formally submit this on their site Miz?

  49. Alissa says:

    I hope that they notice this post!! :)

  50. Amanda says:

    What Connie said :)

  51. The Poster Girl says:

    I hope Ellen invites you on the show ASAP! I think you two would be a great dynamic. I llove that you write exactly as I hear you in your podcasts!

  52. Maria (RealFitMama) says:

    Love it!

    I’m in!

    Where do I apply to be your intern???

  53. addy says:

  54. Lisa says:

    lol!! foolishness- love it!

  55. Amanda says:

    OMG that cartoon is hilarious!!!

    I HEART Ellen.

  56. Rita says:

    I went to a taping of the Ellen Show once and it was super fun.

    I would love for our whole Tribe to go at once.

    We need to get this!

  57. Wifey says:

    CLASSIC. Can’t wait to see you sitting on Ellen’s couch.

    Winks & Smiles,

  58. Heather says:

    I wish I had contacts at the Ellen show to help you get on. I hope it happens soon!!!!

  59. Katie says:

    Life should be filld with laughter.

    This is so so funny.

  60. HealthyLoserGal / Jan says:

    This MUST come to fruition… I say we do an #MizFitEllenFriday campaign on Twitter each Friday…with @EllenShow (is that right?) included and get her attention! An audience of fitness bloggers and you, Miz, on stage with Ellen? What could be better?! :) Can’t you bring Fila or Shape or someone into the mix?

  61. Beck Stein says:

    Ha VERY cute! I hope it happens…I’m actually surprised she hasn’t asked you to join her on the show yet. IT WILL HAPPEN ;)
