Friday and Saturday

Hello Clean Eaters One and All...

How did it become the 19th of October? I am amazed at how quickly the weeks are flying by. Halloween is just around the corner! And then the holidays will be on our doorsteps.

I spent all day yesterday filming. They filmed my daughter and me shopping at Sherway Gardens mall here in Ontario. Did anybody see those 2 crazies looking for sheets yesterday at the mall? If so, that was Chelsea and me. We are redecorating her bedroom now that she is almost 16 and looking for something a little more mature.

But today I am taking advantage of a day off.

I'll be spending it with my husband and stepdaughter on this crisp fall afternoon. What are you up to in your respective parts of the world today?

The competition is drawing nearer. I had a Skype date (internet video phone) with my daughter yesterday and she reminded me that in a month we will be in Las Vegas. That sent a little wake up call to me.

On that note, here are my eating and training logs for Friday and Saturday:

Tosca,

Enjoy your day with your hubby. You deserve any time you get with your man and your family. Must admit, I envy you today. My hubby has been away working out in BC since Sept 11th. Miss him terribly! However, I have been a work in progress since he left. I think he is going to be pleasantly suprised when he returns in November :-O
Loving your blog! You rock!
