At Home

I've taken a few days of rest at home allowing my leg to recover from my diving accident. I am really amazed at how much better my mobility is after a few sessions of physiotherapy including acupuncture and taping. I can walk around in flat shoes without too much discomfort. I've been staying off of it as much as possible so I can wear heels on Saturday night. I will be receiving an award at the WBFF show. I'll tell you more about it after the event. Soon after that my husband and I are flying to LA to celebrate Jack LaLanne's 95th (!!!!) birthday. This event will also be requiring heels. Calf recovery is much needed!!

While home I've been catching up on work and spending time with Chelsea and the puppies. Here they are looking lovely after a day with the groomer. Sadly, this look doesn't last very long. Bailey rubs his golden coat in the dirt as soon as possible and Davidson finds something to get into not long after that. Such is the life of man's best friend. I also got down to the city yesterday to get my highlights done. I knew it was high time for a change when I started wearing my hair in a ponytail all the time. It was looking a bit drab. Maybe I should just go with the foiled look all the time. What do you think? I also met up with my daughter, Rachel, for lunch. She's living in Toronto now while she attends naturopathic college. It was a very nice afternoon just us girls.

Now, I'm at home resting again. I have been in the gym doing as much as I can. This is my first day of leg training so I will tell you how it goes. Swimming with arms only is working very well for cardio. Thank you for all of the bike recommendations. I will have to get searching into that. First things first... healing!!

Happy Friday Clean Eaters!!

Love,

Don't we look so pretty when we go to the salon. Well, lol, it's the after effects that we like. Glad you can get beautified. I'm due to go and get mine done again soon too.

Just watched your clip on CTV. I love listening to you and your tips for eating. I'm not however practicing it the way I should though. I do however try somewhat.

Enjoy the weekend!

I just read your blog for the first time and its great! The funny part is..I did triathlons for years! I am even a triathlon coach. I decided to challenge myself in a new way and do a figure competition! I found that with the tri's and ironman, you still ate "junk" as a reward. Each year seemed to put on 1-2 pounds more than the year before! So now I want to change it and be fit like I should be and feel inside. I have all your cookbook and look forward to your new one!
Take time to recover....triathlon races will always be there.

Jack LaLanne has been my hero since I was a little girl - you are so blessed to be going to his birthday! I remember being really tiny and exercising along with him. I hope you got some pictures with him. :)
