Last Few Days in LA

My last few days in LA were full of activity.

On Friday I awoke bright & early for a taping of The Doctors. My husband and I were picked up from our hotel in Santa Monica and whisked through lovely LA traffic to set of the show. They made us feel very welcome and did a wonderful job on my hair and make up. That was a special treat! Once I was ready they sent me out on stage to meet "the doctors" en masse. We went through a couple of rehearsals before they began taping. Of course, if there's one thing I've learned about TV, it doesn't matter how much you rehearse, things will always change once the cameras start rolling. I won't give everything away before the air date, but we definitely did some training with the doctors. Think lunges with weights... woohoo!! The taping flew by and the audience was very receptive. Yeah! I'll give you an air date as soon as I know.

After that my husband and I were exhausted. The week had been a total whirlwind! We ended up being lazy and slept in on Saturday morning. I can't remember the last time I did that.

We spent the rest of Saturday putzing around 2 museums (the MOCA and the LACMA) before making our way over to Gold's Gym in Venice Beach for an overdue training session. It felt so good to have a decent weights session after a week of running around with very little time to spare.

Sunday was our final day. We ate breakfast at the hotel about 3 feet from Ron Howard (the director) and then boarded our plane to find Joe Jonas (of the Jonas Brothers) and Brenda Song (of the Suite Life of Zach & Cody) on our flight. They were kind enough to give me autographs for my 16 year old who literally screamed when I told her the news.

Now, I am settling back into home life, which means laundry, groceries, emails, and more!

I am happy to be home...

Sounds like you had a great and busy time! Awesome. Haha, I may have been more start struck by Ron Howard than the teenagers.

Such a busy lady! Thanks for the fun glimpses into your life, Tosca.

Just received my copy of your new cookbook yesterday. I preordered it on Amazon and I was so excited when it arrived. As a military spouse overseas, getting any mail is always good ;-) but it's much more fun when it's one of your books or my latest copy of Oxygen.

Thanks for the inspiration - my husband is a former powerlifter and you can bet he's not complaining about the changes in his wife and kids these days. I'm now attending school to become a Master level CFT - all because I stumbled across Oxygen in a military PX last year while trying to figure out how to firm up after a baby.

Thanks for all you do!

I know what you mean by how a proper workout makes all the difference after running around in chaos. I also think it's funny that you go from a JoBro to laundry. Home is best, even with the chores! Glad your trip was a success.

Hi Tosca,

A frequent ingrediant in your recipes is agave nectar. I live near Peterborough, ON, can you please let me know where I can find this ingrediant. Thanks so much for all you do!!!!!
