This week I’ve been prepping to do some short informational videos of our CO Fitness Journals. Some people have been asking how I personally use them so I thought I’d share my journey with them for the past 3 months. Truth be told I am SO awkward in front of the camera! Whether it be photo or video it’s the same. Probably because I’m extremely self conscious about my physical appearance. I’ve done a few Youtube videos for CO in the past but they weren’t serious and I am NOT happy with them at all. They were filmed on my iSight camera on my laptop and the quality was meh.

Because of this, Charlie is going to help his lil’ ol’ wifey out and make me a tripod. I found this tutorial by DIY Blog Stalker on how to make an overhead camera mount. This way I could stay out of the camera. 🙂 This was the simplest tutorial ever and it cost us less than $6! A tripod arm/extender could range anywhere from $50-$160 and my hubby made mine for $6. What a steal!

We had this piece already from our octopus tripod. You could buy this piece for less than $5.

It took us less than 30 minutes to cut everything and piece together. So easy guys!
