Before joining Dr. Drew’s daytime television show Lifechangers, Coach Marc Montemerlo trained Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon, Chris O’Donnell, and Marcia Cross. He helped them to shed unwanted pounds, gain muscle tone, and improve their overall health and appearance.

His regimen does more than exercise the body. Through his fitness academy, Coach Marc works to exercise minds as well. Says the coach, “if you want to achieve real, long lasting results, you need to tackle mental weakness as well.”

clients achieve fitness goals, I help them find their life’s path. How did you get the gig on Dr. Drew’s Lifechanger show? I published an article on how to maintain balance in life and somehow, the show’s producer stumbled on it. He apparently liked my philosophy regarding fitness and life and called me in for a screen test. The next thing I knew, I was selected as a Lifechanger for Dr. Drew.

Breaking bad habits is key. Smoking, drinking, overeating and laziness all stem from the mind. If you want to find balance in life – the ultimate goal, according to Coach Marc - it is important to develop habits that lift the spirit and get you moving in the direction towards physical and mental fitness.

Why is it important we transform both mind and muscle? In today’s fast paced world, it is so easy to live on autopilot. But, if we do not stimulate our mental capacity, we end up merely existing. That leads to complacency, then to boredom, then to lack of drive. The greatest thing about exercise and moving the body is that it somehow forces the mind to shift gears and open up.

Why have you dedicated your life to changing the lives of others? Coach Marc: Years ago, after I lost my father to suicide, I had to be strong for my sister and mother, supporting them and caring for them on all levels. I put myself second to their needs. About three years later, a friend, who happens to be a life coach, asked me about my dad because I hardly ever spoke about him. I finally released all the emotional stress and anxiety I had bottled up. I was able to put my dad to rest. I had been empowered; recharged. I started sharing the skills I learned with some of my fitness clients, coaching them through their own tough times. I was surprised by how easily it all flowed from me to them. I decided to get my life coaching certification. Now, in addition to helping Pg. 8

Does the road to fitness really change lives? People who work out know the feeling of a natural high that cannot be bought at a store or found in a bottle. The endorphins rush you get after a long run or an intense spin class. That surge of happiness that just keeps you going back for more. I had a client who was confined to a wheel chair. When I first met him, his posture was rounded forward, chin pointed down and low, shoulders, legs and core under developed. He was a weak sight. What did you do to help him? I started by getting him out of his chair and onto the exercise mat. I taught him momentum patterns to get up with the least amount of effort. We slowly worked on improving his posture, lifting his chin up and drawing his shoulders back. He needed to know his disability was nothing to be ashamed of and he had to learn pride in himself. By training the mind, the body changes. Six months later, he did his first spin class and eight months later he took his first assisted ten steps towards me. Are fitter people happier people? If you exercise, you will be a happier person. You don’t need to be a crazy marathon runner to get the happy bug. All you need to do is get your heart rate up and your blood oxygenated. You will notice things start to change inside of you. The way you think about yourself, others and of life in general will change because you are in the process of empowering yourself. Once you are empowered you can achieve most anything. The hardest part of the journey is staying on the journey. Motivation is my favorite topic. Truthfully, it is simple. It comes from within. Staying motivated can be challenging at times. Hell, sometimes I even get down on myself and lack drive. We all do. It’s human nature. But it’s important to Pg. 10

have the skills to get motivation back up and drive harder to achieve more. I often use motivational books, videos and meditations to help me stay motivated. The best thing to do is to find someone that exudes motivation and spend as much time as possible with them. Motivation is infectious. What are examples of mental exercises one can do to stay motivated? Live in the moment. Often, we get distracted by the little things in life. Set up daily task lists to keep yourself on track. If you remain focused, you will be rewarded with results. Results will drive you to achieve more as achieving stimulates acceleration and then momentum. Once momentum kicks in, there’s nothing that can hold you back. You also say quiet time is important. You need time to rejuvenate through meditation and reading. Be calm, clear and get inspired.

What is the biggest mistake people make in their quest for fitness? Too much, too soon. People enter their training programs really excited and end up pushing themselves too fast and then burning out. Another mistake people make is comparing themselves to fitness models in magazines. They forget theses models do this for a living. To have those awesome amazing bodies, you would need to be in the gym seven days a week, three hours a day. It also requires strict eating plans. And it takes years to get to look like that! If you want to make lasting changes towards a fitter life, be patient and committed. How important is nutrition? Along with fitness and strength training, it’s one of the three vital components for optimum results. If my nutrition is off and I have been hitting the sugars and bad stuff, my workouts are terrible and pessimism kicks in big time. If I’m on plan, feeding my body the nutrition it requires to work like an athlete, it’s game on. I work out harder, I achieve more, my mood is better, motivation clearer and I have an internal drive that pushes me further and faster. Is happiness the ultimate goal? Having a balanced lifestyle that involves social interaction, working out, excelling in your career and being an all rounded healthy minded person will make you a happier person. Your life is a blessing. Wake up everyday and say, “Wow, I have another day to achieve something. What will that be?” Be good to yourself, be good to others, be good to the earth you live on and become the best person you can be.

Aries March 21 April 19 You’re not comfortable having your plans or schedules challenged. You are never indifferent to the feelings of coworkers, but often become testy if others question you. Even though you freely volunteer to help beyond the call of duty, you always have a catch or loophole back up plan. Being trustful of others is awkward for you, try working on that. Two heads can make a world of difference; aim to be more objective and cooperative. Taurus April 20 May 20 It’s a good idea to refrain from decision making positions where you’re responsible for others. You tend to fall for sob stories quickly and deeply, often allowing feelings to overwhelm logic. Once a schedule or duty is presented, you plow forward like a trooper. However, the minute someone weaker seeks your help, you lose momentum and need a lot of time to regroup. Let others take the lead, and be contest to follow the rules. Gemini May 21 June 20 In the perfect world of financial survival, you’re well perfect! You work well with others who understand the work a day employment ropes and inspire and guide you like a school teacher. Not managerial or executive material, you enjoy being told precisely what to do and say, and how and when to act. A bit stingy with income, learn to loosen up the purse strings and rid yourself of poverty consciousness.

Pg. 14

Cancer June 21 July 22 You think big and have grand ambitions but often overlook the importance of the little things, and get nervous about details. You perform well in structured environments, but not so organized that you lose your freedom to explore and experiment. Don’t let the fear of making a mistake keep you from making more money, or moving forward. You’re a sublime combination of cooperation and genius! Leo July 23 August 22 Your live and let live attitude influences others but doesn’t necessarily win friends from coworkers. you have difficulty accepting responsibility and are not great about taking orders. Never a soft spoken, silent type, you always say what’s on your mind. Because you’re more enthusiastic than logical, start listening to the words in your head before spouting them out haphazardly. Be open to others ideas, rather than desperately clinging to your game plan. Virgo August 23 September 22 You are capable, practical, and versatile, but not particularly ambitious. You probably have a long laundry list of job skills and employment history, the reason being you simply don’t like doing the same old thing over and over because you bore easily. Working behind the scenes and without a spotlight suits you best. To work is only natural to you. Once you set about a task, you stay until it’s done.

Libra September 23 October 22 At work, two head are better than singular noggins. You enjoy on the job brainstorming, socializing and camaraderie. More than capable of following instructions, once defined, you eagerly attack the project and don’t rest until it’s completed. It’s a good idea to find a financial advisor, learn to budget and save for a rainy day. you are an easy victim for impulse buying, or frittering away all those hard earned dollars. Snatch a lover that has good financial latitude and loving leeway.

Capricorn December 22 January 19 Because your everyday world is far removed from that of finances and schedule, you’re best suited for jobs that are more social, spontaneous, or inspiring to others. Because your rational mind is strongly influenced by your imagination, you punch the time clock forever unsure about your talents. Never take on responsibilities that you know you can’t perform. Work with your strengths, rather than dreams or shortcomings.

Scorpio October 23 November 21 You are a conscientious and efficient worker, a natural diplomat who expresses yourself so honestly that no one ever harbors bad feelings, even if you say or do something unpleasant. You are secure and flexible in your ideas and opinions, never aggressive, archaic, nor static. Although you make up your mind rather quickly, you always wind up profiting from your natural intuition. Idle time is not comfortable for you, you enjoy being of service, staying busy!

Aquarius January 20 February 18 You are never happy assuming positions of power or authority, even though you’re self confident and your efficiency skills are clear and precise. You’re good at planning schedules, understanding debits and credits, and priorities. You rarely take work home with you. You’re not afraid of hard labor and hate it when others don’t do their share. You know how to save, when necessary, and are never stingy when you have some extra dollars for frivolous fun.

Sagittarius November 22 December 21 Like a therapist or writer, you have a keen ability for evaluating situations and discover efficient methods for transforming problems into profits. You are fair and easy going with coworkers, and rarely overreact to disappointment or setback. Because of your curious nature, you’re always well informed and never at a loss for words. Your open minded ambiance encourages fellow employees because you inspire, don’t intimidate.

Pisces February 19 March 20 It’s difficult to reach agreements with coworkers because you’re rather stubborn and set in your ways. Your do it now and move forward attitude is rarely influenced by feelings or intuitions. Conservative and practical, although numbers and figures are not your strength, you’re well suited for managerial positions. You keep your mind busy on the job and leave all personal stuff home.

Marvelous Mushroom Soup

by Blue Jean Granny

Did you ever come home from a long days work or shopping, the weather is rainy and unpleasant, you’re hungry and tired, and you just want something warm and comforting? I have just the thing for you, (no, no) it’s called Marvelous Mushroom Soup. Nothing like a bowl of good soup, a crust of bread and maybe a glass of wine to get you back on the right track. This is one of my favorite soups and I often serve it at dinner parties. However, I usually make a double batch to take care of requests for seconds. You will want to pick a mixture of mushrooms to make up the two pounds: White button, Cremini, Portabella, Baby Bella, Shitake, Porcini whatever you like. I first got this recipe from Taste of Home Magazine; however, they may no longer recognize it. Let’s start.

Marvelous Mushroom Soup Makes about 2 quarts 3 medium size white or yellow onions, finely chopped 3 cloves of garlic, finely minced (or use a garlic press) - clove means segment not the whole bulb 1/4 cup butter 2 pounds mushrooms *see note at end of recipe 2 cups heavy cream (if you are watching calories use half and half) 1 1/2 cups beef or chicken broth, (beef broth makes it a little more earthy) 1/2 cup white wine, (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon - just not a sweet dessert wine) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper Grated Parmesan cheese Minced parsley or cilantro, for garnish Pg. 18

In a large saucepan, sauté onions and garlic in butter over medium-low heat until tender. Reduce heat to low, add the chopped mushrooms and cook for 8-10 minutes until just tender, stirring occasionally. Add the cream, wine, broth, salt and pepper. Cook and stir over low heat until heated through. Garnish with Grated Parmesan cheese and minced parsley or cilantro. *I like to take about half of the stems from the mushrooms, put in the food processor and chop until very fine. Reason for this: the soup was a bit thin for my taste and this helps to thicken it up. Sometimes I even put just a couple teaspoons corn starch mixed in a tablespoon of cold water in to thicken further.

When you use wine in cooking always use a wine you would drink, stay away from the cooking wine you usually ďŹ nd near the vinegars at the store. For this soup, go ahead, splurge, and use the fresh grated parmesan, not the green box kind.

o A great thickener, but expensive, is to d put in a couple handfuls of the grated Parmesan. Wow.

Boys and Girls, till next time remember to work smart, play hard and take time out for a cookie.

I like to serve this with crusty bread, orr little cheese/garlic biscuits and alwayss with a nice glass of the wine I used forr the soup. Didjaknow: You can buy great broth in a e box, just use what you need and put the rest in the icebox: keeps for a couple off e weeks or more. I always keep a couple of boxes in the pantry.

Friday,

March 16th, TWIT held a twohour party at the Round-Up Saloon in Dallas. There we met up with D.J. Dustin Wood and had a pretty big request – we needed two hours of music to which our go-go dancers could perform. Not a big deal at most clubs, but the RoundUp Saloon is the premier gay country bar known worldwide and most people don’t associate country music with scantily clad dancers on boxes. “It was a tall order,” says Dustin, “the first thing to go through my mind was, ‘this simply isn’t possible’ then I began to run down a list in my head of how I could pull it off.” A classically trained musician, Dustin began compiling a list in his head of what he describes as “grindable” country. “I knew it had to be up-tempo country with a rock edge and preferably in a minor key.” All that musical training seems to have paid off as he kept our dancers shaking their moneymakers for the whole two hours and rocking the place. Dustin explained to us, “I was in music programs all through high school and college. My primary instruments are tenor and soprano sax, and flute, but I also dabble on guitar and piano. I performed in orchestra, jazz band, etc. During college, I also began to DJ for my fraternity. One of my other frat brothers, Kelly O’Neill, also spun for us and is now Pg. 20

When asked how he started at the Round-Up, “I moved to Texas after law school and was looking for something part-time on the side just to have fun. I slightly knew one of the other DJ’s at the Round-Up, Randy Arnold, and mentioned to him that I was interested in applying for a side job. He looked at me and said, ‘know anything about music?’ Two weeks later, I was in the booth.” When he’s not making boots scoot at Round Up, Dustin works full time in the field of contract law, but he says the music is a release: “It’s all about making a party, feeling the crowd, and knowing how music can shape the emotional energy in a room.” Aside from his two jobs, Dustin is also an aspiring writer having penned articles for the online magazines, “What White Elephant” and “The Co-Conspirator”. His first book, “Faust County Fair,” a modern southern gothic novel, is due out later this year. He keeps a blog at http:// www.dustinscottwood.blogspot.com and you can follow him on twitter at @ dswood524. The following is D.J.

teamm8 pays tribute to the 2012 Olympic games with it’s new Nations collection of swim and underwear. Produced in striking colors that match the flags of some of the leading countries going for gold – including the USA, Australia and Great Britain – Nations takes the spirit of the summer games into the locker and bedrooms of everyday champions. “We first introduced Nations in 2008 as an underwear to celebrate the Olympic games in Beijing,” explains Michal Nicolas, teamm8’s founder and head designer. “For 2012, we’ve added swimwear. The entire range has become a staple of our brand and is now an important part of our story.” That story began in the living room of Nicolas’ home where with a simple website and two styles of underwear, he launched one of the fastest growing athletic wear collections on the market today. In addition to undies, teamm8 competes in swim, tees and fitness wear. They consistently come out on top by simply putting “play” back in the game. Michael Nicolas explains. March 30, 2012

player and we are your support team’. Is it true you started from your living room? I did! I launched with a website and two styles of underwear, that’s it. That was in 2008 and back then I operated and managed every facet singlehandedly. The brand grew almost instantaneously and over the next few years, I introduced more underwear styles and then a basic swim line. Now you have sweats and tees too. I was hesitant to go into sportswear because I thought it was an overcrowded market but I was floored by the reaction of our first athletic wear collection. We learned guys wanted stylish fitness wear that didn’t make them look like they were going to a club or running a marathon. What separates teamm8 from its competitors? Quality and style. Our athletic wear is great for the gym, a lunch date, or for just hanging around in all day. Michal Nicolas, teamm8’s founder and head designer. Most men call the brand “Team 8”, but isn’t the correct pronunciation Team Mate? Michal Nicolas: A lot of people get confused but the name is in fact ‘team mate’, as in a fellow member of a team. In Australia, mate is the iconic word used to describe a male buddy or a friend. Everybody here uses it, even when addressing people they just met. I abbreviated it to ‘m8’. To me, the name embodied everything about the brand: Australian, the sporting values, the masculinity and the unity. What is the ideology of the brand? We are for everyday champions; for active achievers who tackle life head on. I always say, ‘at teamm8, you are the star Pg. 22

Is there an advantage to being a smaller company? Boutique brands enjoy the luxury of dancing to the beat of their own drum. Decisions are made and acted on quickly. We’re not dragged down by corporate influences and strategies. How would describe the 2012 collection? Our best yet. This collection remains true to our core design values yet with a little more fun and excitement, especially in the athletic and swimwear. The athletic collection has a slimmer cut than most gear out there. A slimmer cut is more flattering on most guys. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of skin tight fits. There are very few guys who can or should wear them. But at the same time, I don’t think drowning in your clothes is flattering either.

had football players battling for it. This season, the pink Star Player brief is our best seller. Does teamm8 thrive on competition? We take big risks at teamm8, but that was how I founded the label, taking a huge risk. That and extremely hard work and dedication. But I believe you achieve nothing without playing life that way, and that’s exactly how we approach everything here at teamm8. You work hard, you enjoy the benefits. Teamm8 Nations collection is available at LAJock.com. Michal Nicolas, teamm8’s founder and head designer.

Many of teamm8’s briefs tend to be low. We do keep a low rise to all our briefs, but they’re not all so ridiculously low. Comfort is our number one design rule and if the rise is too low, we find the brief is not comfortable to wear all day. But with the success of the Super Low Rise collection, there’s no denying some guys like low.

A Gloria means “the heavens”. It’s a good thing you don’t have to die to get there! Chef Johnny Hernandez opened La Gloria, a restaurant featuring Mexican street foods, in the Pearl Brewery complex near the Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio campus. I visit La Gloria a couple of times a month, maybe more. I’m addicted I must confess. Chef Johnny Hernandez has been able to merge Mexican street foods in a stylish, funky and delicious way. As a child growing up, I lived in Mexico City and often traveled with my father around the country to cities I couldn’t even pronounce, and experienced some amazing local foods. Like the Tlayuda from Oaxaca, the Tacos Potosinos from San Luis Potosi and the Taquitos that we had from any given city while taking a break from being on the road. Pg. 28

Jennifer Castanon and Natalie Lara are great, Francisco Mannechez known as “El Gerente” aka the General Manager makes sure that restaurant runs smoothly and that everyone leaves having had a good time and some delicious Mexican soul food. Yes, it is Soul food. It was created with love and soul from generations past and now Chef Johnny has taken it to a new level.

The restaurant has an open comfortable feel with really cool fixtures custom designed just for La Gloria. There is an amazing outdoor seating area that overlooks the Riverwalk. If you happen to be there on the weekend, be prepared to hear some great music that complements the food and the environment. After dinner, you can enjoy a stroll through the very modern section of the river walk which runs adjacent to the restaurant. La Gloria’s is a welcome and refreshing change to one of my favorite cuisines that I will continue to be visiting regularly. Try it out

Nakedness. Everywhere. All the time. Running Juicy Pink Box, I look at women in various stages of undress all day long, every day. I think the nudity issue is one thing about my job that really fascinates people. I understand. I really do. When I was a little girl growing up in the south, I didn’t dream of one day becoming the lesbian Hugh Hefner; it just happened. For someone who makes her living paying people to do private things in public, I am surprisingly shy. To be perfectly honest, I’m not totally comfortable with sex; it’s an ever-evolving topic in my life. But that’s between me and my therapist. Anyway, back to the naked ladies. Being on a porn set is very different from being on a nude beach. On a nude beach everyone is either naked or in some form of skimpy clothing, but on a porn set only the talent is naked. You’ve probably heard of movie sets where everyone gets naked for love scenes? Well, I don’t run that kind of operation! I wouldn’t tolerate ogling or disrespectful behavior on my set, so the crew certainly does not sit around and stare at bare breasts. Not on purpose, anyway. However, the whole point of porn is sex, so you really can’t escape sex on a porn set. A typical day for me on set would

happen something like this: I arrive at 6 a.m. -- before everyone else. Clean up. Do paperwork. Lay out breakfast. Hair and makeup people arrive and set up. Talent arrives. Talent starts hair and makeup. Stylist arrives. Stylist has talent undress. Nakedness. Talent tries on different outfits, including lingerie. I evaluate what works for the scene, what suits my taste, how comfortable the talent feels in the outfit, and how it will look on camera. Nakedness. Crew arrives and preps scene as talent finishes hair and makeup. Test shots with talent or a stand-in. We have a happygo-lucky PA who often volunteers to act out the scenes for the test shots. She’s really good, and I have tried to recruit her, but she has no interest in being in front of the camera. Once out of hair and makeup, we do a photo shoot with talent. Nakedness. When that’s finished, we do final prep for the scene. Scene begins. I watch the monitor mostly, to see what the action looks like

on camera. It’s always vastly different from the way it looks in person. I try to cultivate a sense of reality. I squelch anything that looks false or feels too “porn-y”. When the connection to sex is real, be it alone or between partners on screen, I find that I am glued to the monitor. I watch without any sense of separation -- I forget, and I just watch. In the moments when I get swept away like that, that’s when I know I am making something special. Scene wraps. Lunch. Rinse and repeat with the scene we shoot in the afternoon. More nakedness. I never get desensitized to sex, and honestly, when I ask the talent to remove clothing, I often blush. Somewhere inside, there is still that little southern belle who was afraid to look at boobs in the locker room for fear that her classmates would know she was a “dirty lesbian.” But I’m not a kid anymore. Sex is my business, and I am a professional, so at the end of the day, I have to move past my shame and focus on making excellent entertainment. The show must go on -- boobies and all.
