Going to QVC








This is Kelsey leaping - check out the air she is getting!

My makeup drawer.

Hello Sisters in Iron.
Was your week cold enough? My golden retriever thinks so. He would lie down in the snow when I took my dogs for a walk, and wait until I cleared his paws. I don't think he likes the ice much. Yeah! It has been cold. I don't mind it too much. As long as I can pile enough clothes on me and get out in the weather I feel like it clears my head. I actually like it. When you add some exercise to the picture, like snowshoeing for example, well you get pretty warm. I am usually quite sweaty after an hour on my snowshoes.

I told you earlier this week that I was going to work on eating smaller quantities. It can be done e! All week I have used smaller plates and eaten a bit less than what I would normally. I feel fine. And I noticed I still have abdominal definition even though I am not training for a contest right now. So less is more!

This weekend I am travelling to Kingston and then Belleville. Kingston is our first stop to drop off some things for Kiersten at Queens - lamps, blankets, clothes, groceries - and then we are going to drive to Belleville for the Quinte Ballet School Gala. Kelsey is dancing in the gala and we are getting all dressed up for the big dinner. We are going as a family and it should be fun. There will be dancing and dining and silliness but most importantly we will be supporting the school.

At the end of the week I will be travelling to the US to appear on QVC. That is the big American shopping channel. I will be on TV at 9:00 am on Friday, January 23rd. You can watch online at http://www.qvc.com/. I don't think Canadians get QVC on TV but I have watched my friend Bobbi Brown on my computer and it works pretty well. I will be doing a cooking segment and pitching my books. Should be fun!

All week long I have heard Oprah and Gayle King talking about the inauguration. History is definitely in the making. The sense of change and the dare to hope is back in the air. I am not an American but even I feel empowered by this man and his family. I find myself looking forward to the changes he has promised to bring about. I am proud of Canadians too because we are just as excited about what is going to be happening in Washington. It is good for us to once again believe in something.

Remember to believe in yourselves too. I do. Remember you are never alone. This weekend make a hearty stew for your family. Fill it with vegetables and spices for flavor. Gather up your family and go for a walk or a skate. Get out into the fresh air and fill your lungs with clean, invigorating oxygen.
Hugs to you all,
Tosca

HI Tosca,

Thank your for your comments. Enjoy your trip. When you have a change would you mind posting your meals? I am curious what you eat out side of competition prep.

Thank you.

Gayle said...

Hi! I can't wait to watch QVC from my desk at work. =) I am looking forward to seeing what you have cooking. My friend started eating clean less than 8 weeks ago and is using a lot of your recipes. She lets me sample... which is great! The coolest part is that she has lost over 10 pounds so far and is so excited about Clean Eating. I lost 35 pounds so far and am still going! Good luck with your show! Have fun with it!!

Hugs,
Gayle

Hi Tosca,

Today I have felt lazy and a bit cold (in Scandinavia), and thought about staying in and feeling cozy. BUT, after reading your blog about the benefits of fresh air - and excercise, I am now heading for a 12km brisk nordic walk. Thank you for kicking my butt!

I started gym after a long break (due to injury) last week, and ohh am I sore! I love it!

Tosca,

I too would like it if you would post what you eat and also brands (i understand that you are not a sponser) but would appreciate the help since there is sooooo much out there and my head starts to spin. Definitely need more recipes or links. You are truly an awesome motivator and I too will be looking forward to qvc.

Heather said...

For sure I will watch QVC that morning. Do you need people to call in with "testimonials" about your recipes? I have used (and still use) alot of your recipes. My kids love them.
Good Luck with your travels.
Heather

Hello Tosca!~

Your cute dog needs booties for his paws!

Hi Tosca!
Good luck on QVC. I'll be at work that day, but will make sure to watch from my computer.
If you do in fact have an opportunity to stick around West Chester for a bit, I'd recommend a stop at ACAC (right around the corner from QVC studios. I think you'd enjoy what they have to offer and their vision for wellness.
Anyhow...enjoy your week!!!! Love the pics you post.

Hi Tosca! Got a question for you. With a fresh veggie sandwich on whole grain pita bread, would walnuts added to it be enough protein to balance it out? I made this sandwich today - loaded it with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, and onions then put walnuts in their for protein. It was really tasty but I wondered if the nuts would be enough protein.
I just bought the Eat Clean Cookbook and am looking forward to trying out some recipes! I'm new to clean eating so having recipes is so helpful!

Take care,
Karen

Thank you so much!!

HA ha. I love your makeup drawer, it looks a lot like mine!! Congratulations on QVC! You have really inspired me to eat clean and lift weights. I even keep the issue of Oxygen with your photo on it next to my bed so I can get inspired every morning as soon as I wake up! I even catch my husband reading copies from time time to time! LOL

Dear Tosca,

I'm not sure if this is a stupid question but is there such a thing as "Clean Whey"? If so, what brand is it so I can use it in my shakes. Please keep the recipes coming....you are awesome.

Hi Tosca,
I wondered if you have any tips on what type of weight scale is best to use? I use a pretty simple digital one, but it seems to give me different numbers when I check several times in a row. Is there any one style of scale that is better or more accurate than another? I know there are pricier versions that measure body fat etc. But I don't know if they are any better than a cheaper scale?

Thanks,
Cecilia

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
