Inspired by Bethenny: Blogger Gets Balanced with Bethenny
When Bethenny's team spotted blogger Keisha Rose's post on Rose New York City, we knew she was the kind of girl Bethenny loves: self-deprecating, but fiercely determined. Keisha blogged about buying "Bethenny's Skinnygirl Workout" DVD, then never getting around to doing it! "Here's the #honest moment when I admit that the box sat on top of the DVDs for two years," she wrote. Oops.

But Keisha did finally get it together and did the whole workout. "I woke up this morning wonderfully sore throughout my abs, derriere, and legs. The feeling of productivity!" She called the experience inspirational… and she's already ordered "Body by Bethenny."

What about Bethenny inspired you?
Bethenny's versatility and drive to make everything her business are the words I constantly remind myself to live by. People respect hard work and drive. Bethenny owns her snafus and spins them to her benefit. It's not always the path of least resistance.

What made you finally do the workout after so long?
As I entered a new decade in my life, I craved a better balance. I like the feeling after the gym or a run in Central Park, but I was spending the entire time trying to distract myself from now much I'm not enjoying the process. It occurred to me that there is more to working out than maintaining a healthy weight with cardio. I needed to tone my muscles.

How did you start your blog?
When I moved to New York after college, I came with two suitcases and a small nest egg in the bank. Blogging is a free hobby and offered me the creative outlet I was hungry for while taking temp roles to support myself.

Could Rose New York City become a full-time job for you?
I do maintain an internal blog at the bank I work at (ranked #9 globally across 71 countries in 2012!), and I would love to do this professionally… but need a little more Bethenny guts to get there!

Keep doing that workout, and you'll have not only the guts, but the abs! Follow Keisha on Twitter at @keisharose10038.
