Best solution??

Hop on a plane to LA.

That's what me and my hubby did this week. Unfortunately, our foray into the golden state only lasted 1 day. We flew in on Tuesday evening, filmed all day on Wednesday, and flew home on Thursday afternoon. Boo!!!

That is not the best thing to do. All I wanted was to soak up the sun for just a few more minutes before heading back to snow country.

BUT the time I had in LA was great. I was really nervous to work with the team from Extra. I was lying in bed on Tuesday night worrying away about how the day would go. Would they think I was unprofessional? Would I mess up? Would it not be interesting enough? All these things kept me up. When the day finally arrived and I started things went much more smoothly than I thought. We actually had a lot of fun. The feedback was great, too. I guess my work with Naomi producing the series for The W Network gave me a lot of practice. I felt totally at ease.

The show will air on March 7th. It is part of Extra's Ambush Lifestyle Makeovers. We ambushed a teen with diabetes. It was a really great day with an excellent message. I'll give you more details closer to the date.

Next time I am hoping to show Mario Lopez a few things in the gym!

Have a great weekend everyone.

Goodness you look good!

Looking forward to getting your books soon (to Finland). I am your age and your example pushes me forward - in a very, very positive way. I am making nice progress, slowly but surely, and in a healthy manner. AND I LOVE IT!!!

Ah, great to hear that there is someone else from Finland reading this blog as well. And eating clean :). I just ordered the eat clean cook book from the UK as I couldn't find one in Helsinki.

Keep up the good work Tosca, you've really got a world wide 'audience' :). Big thanks for your inspiration!

you are so beautiful. I was wondering what you use to get your skin tanned or do you use a tanning bed during the grim Canadian winter months. I live in Northern BC and our winters are so long! Can you recommend a great sunless tanning product.

Christine RN, BTech SN (OHN) said...

I have a similar question about tanning - I know it is needed for competition. Is there any success at just fake sprays or dyes or does one have to have a 'base' from a tanning bed or the sun.

I have spent years protecting my skin but may have to succumb if I proceed with my goals of figure comp.

Any tips you have will be greatly appreciated. Because whatever you have done with your skin is awesome and I am sure you can teach us!

Is there a compromise?

Thanks

I noticed that oat bran packs a good bit of protein. I believe 7 grams per serving. Do you think it's necessary to add any other protein when eating it? Or is it fine to eat oat bran by itself for a hot cereal?

It is so nice to see you in your "natural state". With the magazines and the airbrushing and lighting it is hard not to beat myself up. I'm ok when I look at my aging skin when I look at your pictures on this site. Thank You for that. You are beautiful.
