First Stop - Toronto!
Hey Sarah! I should be arriving in Toronto later this week! Once I finish this post I'll be heading to the basement for at least another 15km on my stationary bike! When I get there (Toronto, not the basement) I hope you can suggest a couple of fun FREE activities and tell me what you LOVE about Toronto!
Toronto gets a bad rap from the rest of Canada for some reason...it is the city everyone loves to hate! I don't get it personally, it's a city where multi-culturalism thrives, I think it's beautiful and who doesn't like to shop in Kensington Village! I took my daughter there for her first prom dress and she found a second-hand black strapless number with a short poufy skirt for $20! She paired it with a pair of black converse running shoes and navy blue hair! (She had a brief goth period...thankfully it only lasted a couple of months!)
Many of you have said you would join me on a leg of my journey. I will continue to post in my sidebar what my next destination is and how many km. til I get there. You will need to choose which part you would like to join in on, how you're going to join in (stationary bike, treadmill, walking outside, jogging etc but NO DRIVING!!) and how you're going to track it. It's easy with my bike as it tracks my mileage but something else I do is set up walking routes outside and then drive it once to see the distance. Or, invest in a pedometer:) Whatever works for you!
Monday night is girls night around here. My daughter coerced me to watch an episode of Gossip Girls with her one night and so now of course I'm hooked. So while she relaxes on my bed and stuffs herself I'll be pedaling away like the Wicked Witch of the EAST! "I'll get you my pretty...yes, you and your little dog too...cackle cackle...!" I swear I'm losing it! Today was a rough day - two EAs away so I was juggling staff all day while I was also trying to prepare for a big meeting. It wasn't pretty. A good brisk bike ride will do me good. Or...I could drive over to Dairy Queen for a blizzard...I find when I'm stressed I turn to food, not just any food, oh no, it has to be "bad for me" food. Fortunately there isn't any to be had in the house and generally my overall laziness keeps me from actually making a trip to go get some. Ok, I'm going to try and be good - it's off to exercise I go!
What's your favorite treat to indulge in? I have many: black licorice, icecream, Vector cereal, chocolate, sweettarts, Reisens, sour keys, popcorn.....
