Hiiii! Remember me?? I had a busybusy day yesterday and I’m poking my head in here late to tell you all about it!


Let’s first relish in these photos of healthy food. This was my “balance” for the day ;)


Leftover tofu balls. I really dig these!! Don’t let the term “tofu ball” scare you.


Raw jicama and carrots. Reeeeally loved the jicama cold and in cubes like this. Much better than the cooked version.


All dipped in Averie’s peanut sauce! I added a squirt of soy sauce in there for an extra kick. Dipping lunches are so fun. I munched and crunched till my tummy was ready to burst :)

Shortly after lunch, I set off to work to get in some exercise before my first ever client! The workout wasn’t very noteworthy, I just plugged in the earphones and watched the Food Network for 50 minutes while doing intervals on the elliptical.

As for my first training session – I loved it. I can’t believe how quickly it went by! I lucked out with a great first client, who at one point told me “It’s always the nice ones that get you.” Muhaha. I’ve already got my second client and I can’t wait to get started on a program for him!

I left the gym with a big smile on my face and anticipating the fun evening I had in store. Stopped to fuel up first at Freshii.


This is a chain that I’ve only so far seen in Toronto, but I’m sure is elsewhere.


They do made-to-go wraps, sandwiches and salads. I ordered an albacore tuna wrap with a dill dressing.


Thumbs up on the taste front! Thumbs down on the price – $7 for a small wrap.

Okay, okay. Next I am going to share quite possibly the best and most important recipe ever on this blog…


It was so important, I had to tweet it. 

First, you pour Jagermeister into a shot glass.


Then, you put a dash of Red Bull into a glass.


Line it up and admire your handy work. Take a deep breath and get ready for the hard work that is about to follow.


And take an endearing photo with your significant other ;)


Drop the shot glass in, clink the glasses together and let out a holler along the lines of “heyyoooo!”




It should be mentioned we don’t always drink like this.


Okay, we did in university. It was like old times! Except, instead of sitting around and bitching about classes and professors, we sat around talking about work :P

The part I was really excited for though was our ultimate destination, The Horseshoe Tavern.


The Horseshoe is legendary for all of the amazing and famous shows they’ve housed over the decades. Some of the country’s greatest acts got their starts here.


We were here to see We Are Scientists, an indie pop band from Brooklyn (and yes, that’s the audience dancing on stage). Their first album is my running playlist on my iPod. I danced and bopped along to every song and loved every minute of it.


Scuzzy bathroom photos just aren’t the same without my gal Holly.

We stuck around for a while after the band finished. There may have been another round of Jager Bombs, and I enjoyed a couple of my first Steam Whistle beers.

Not bad! I want to tour the brewery here!

Some of our party stopped for street meat…


Some of us made the mistake of putting street meat in our purse. Those keys are looking pretty tasty covered in bacon bits ;)

I managed to avoid the hot dogs, but I didn’t realize we were coming home to chocolate cookies and chocolate cake.

I do not recommend food photography while drinking. And I probably shouldn’t condone eating chocolate cake before bed either ;)

In all, a wonderful day! I feel surprisingly well today so I’m off to get a workout in, eat a spectacular lunch, go to a job interview and get a fitness assessment done at my new gym. Happy Tuesday!! xoxo


Question of the Day: What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? Mine is probably a Sloan concert I went to with my mom in 2004. They were playing under an alias in a small bar and played all my favourite songs :)
