Pics from The VERY Busy Week

This is me with the host of the show I did on CTV, Leslie Gordon.

Here I am out and about in Chicago!

We visited the Art Institute of Chicago – loads of fun. We loved how Chicagoans dress for the cold. Complete with fur hats, earmuffs and plenty of warm layers. I know Canada is cold and we need to dress for the cold but the Chicagoans have it down to an art!

Here are some shots of the seminar in action. I always do an ice breaker with the audience where I get them to grab their butts and figure out what that backside feels like – hard, soft, flabby, cottage cheese-like – everyone has a good laugh and sometimes we get a picture of people squeezing each other’s butts!

The last pics are of me with Lori Neubauer who along with LoriKay Paden invited me to speak at this huge event run by IAPD – Illinois Area Parks and Recreation Department. The conference was attended by 3500 employees hand picked to join the event. The two Lori’s were sharply focused on having employees’ health and fitness addressed. Their motto was “No Employee Left Behind.” My job was to help people Clean Up their own lifestyle whether that was eating or training and then reflecting that back to the greater community. I learned a lot about how important it is to be the example! And make it easy for others to live their healthiest life.

Hi Tosca,

Is there a link for all of us to watch your CTV appearance? I am in the US and was not able to tune in. :(

Thanks.
