It's About Working Life Out

Jackie reflects on the emotional year.

The ocean has always represented serenity and true peace for me and I knew that it would be the perfect place to reflect and remember Doug. This episode was shot some time after his death and the quietness we all felt was very evident in our faces and demeanor. I wanted to be very true to how I felt and mourn Doug in my way, which is not gratuitous, or for the cameras.

The Skylab clients were so excited to see their final results. We only had 2 months to get that weight off and I would have liked to see more of a payoff for some, but when I saw their glowing faces and all the growth that occurred ... I was beyond proud to have worked with them. I grew and changed right by their sides. I knew Lori (my client, ha-ha) would get the best results and I was especially rooting for Tess because I admire her inner fire and unwillingness to give up

Kiki, Kiki ... she was not ready to take the opportunity I gave her -- and that's a shame because it won't come back again. I am not angry with her just disappointed and worried for her. She will wake up one morning filled with regret.

I loved seeing the excitement from the Paiva execs. I turned that situation around in a very short time and felt immense pride seeing MY clothes in the store after all the stressful disasters-and the photo shoot was a blast!

When I look back at the year I have mixed feelings -- it was bittersweet. I went through a break-up, started new relationships, healed the relationship with mom, mourned dad, lost a beloved trainer. This show is not about working out, it's about working life out.

It's A Wrap

Gregg explains how he manages to stay out of the drama!

It's a wrap. That's all for this season. It's been a fun season and I am grateful I had the pleasure of taking part in it. The trainers will keep training, Jackie will keep making new products, and I'll keep on rockin'. I'm not sure what the future holds for all of us, but it's sort of cool everybody has their something. All of you out there reading this, just keep doing your things too.

Everyone asks how I stay out of the drama, and the truth is I don't know. Maybe I don't hold animosity towards anyone or maybe I just don't care enough to argue, either way I am always having a good time and look at the brighter side of things. I have always been very focused on the things I find to be cathartic and haven't much cared for the rest. It hasn't always proven to keep me in everyone's good graces but it has however kept me ultra focused.

So I hope you all enjoyed seeing me work it out a little like Greg Plitt and his mayo concoction. You may be wondering what happened to Victoria at the reveal. Well, she booked a job in NYC and had to leave Los Angeles a few weeks before the reveal date. I hope she is staying with it and doing well. She lived almost wo hours away from the gym and we were having a hard time getting regular workouts in, but she was definitely focused on her loss. Stay up, mami.

So thank you to everyone who watched us this year. Be sure to check out the music and be sure to keep living it up. Hopefully, we'll be seeing each other again soon. Holler to all of the trainers who I don't get to see all that often and big love to all of you.

Much Love, Dig it?
