About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. I hope you can help me in my journey and I hope that you, too can find balance!

Burritos and Amazing Blogger Award!!!

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Teaching the teachers- DONE! We finished a tough 2 week today with some skipping and step activities to bring into the classroom. We all sweat, we all laughed, we all got tangled in our ropes. It was awesome!!!

On the way home, Carter and I had a BURRITO DATE!!!!! I was dying to try Chino Locos at Greenwood and Queen based on some amazing reviews by a few friends of ours (You remember my BFF Edna, running partner galore- she is the mexican queen- girl can make the most AMAZING mexican food known to man). We walked in and a Tribe Called Quest was playing- score number 1. Who remembers this band??? They were ri-dic. The owner was so nice and attentive, explained to us the way and soon we walked out with burritos the size of our heads.

Don't think because this was the size of my head that I didn't demolish it.

Christina I can already see your drool for the Juicy Vegan burrito! I went with the Biggie Bean and Carter went with a special Chicken burrito. RI-DIC. Chino Locos was named one of 2010's Best Burritos in T.O. and I understand why!!! It was amazing, and I am SO full as I write this.

F yeah.
This is another reason I love Chino Locos:

So it's not the jeans? Damn.
In other news, Christina gave me an AMAZING BLOGGER AWARD!!! She tagged me at the beginning of the month and I feel like I've barely had time to breathe let alone think about this post. I have to THANK HER so much because not only am I in love with her, she is a fellow crazy canuck and she helped me to start blogging. Yay, The Athletarian! I only hope to be as popular as you!

 Here's how it works: I have to answer the questions that Christina was asked and then I have to add my own one at the end!!! Hope you like short stories, people!

1. My favourite cartoon character is (are):


WONDER WOMANNNNNNNN (Check out those quads!!!!)
From the time I was a little girl I remember wanting these girls to kick some serious ASS. Though, I did wish that He-Man and She-Ra would get married. I didn't understand why they had to be brother and sister.
2. My favourite thing to photograph is: 

See question 4. 
3. My favourite thing to cook:
I love Indian Food and Quinoa/Lentil Stir-Frys!!! Usually I'll cook a huge batch to eat for lunch the next day!

One of my favourites- Thai-flavoured quinoa, roasted butternut squash and broccoli, with pesto salmon
4. My favourite way to exercise/my favourite thing to photograph:
Alright well this isn't fair. I am going to be hugely annoying here and say that there are very few forms of exercise that I don't like. I LOVE all types of sports (except soccer... My feet don't work that way), I LOVE going to choreographed classes like Body Attack and Zumba, I LOVE kickboxing, I LOVE Pump and Bootcamp classes, I LOVE TRX, I LOVE to run, I LOVE to skip, and of course, I LOVE Yoga. I'm sorry. You probably want to punch me. But what I have to tell you, is that I have a love for push ups. 
It is my goal in life to spread this love of push ups to bar floors all across Ontario. 

My love of exercise and personal coaching is apparent even during nights out.

These are my friends. At my wedding.

I'm surprised I even have a husband.
I could have kept posting photos. 
5. My favourite movie is:

Allllllllllllllrighty then.

6. My favourite article of clothing is:
I love my wedding dress, my LuluLemon Astro Pants (well.. anything from Lulu), and my yellow Rachel Roy dress!

Would it be appropriate to wear this to work? Great.

These pants hide the lovehandles well.

This does not do the dress justice.
7. My favourite breakfast is:


8. My favourite book I've read lately is:
YES, this counts.
9. My favourite place to be is: 

The Beaches. Carter proposed here, and Wickerhead Chocolate is here. 'Nuff said.
10. My favourite celebrity couple (after Jen & Brad, Emily & Brad, Nick & Jessica):
I know you feel me.
 I'm passing the AMAZING BLOGGER award to the following awesome chicks: 

Kristin @ Running to Somewhere

Hayley @ Oat Couture

Kristine @ Running On Hungry

Amy @ One Chic Chickpea

Carrie @ Confessions of a Dietitian

Go ladies go!!!!!

Answer any of the above questions, I want to know more about my bloggies!!!!! 

Side note- if I can get to 50 followers, I have a Swiss Naturals goody basket to give away!

Katy! I didn't even realise that Christina had tagged me - oops! Thank you so much for my Amazing Blogger Award! Watch out for the answers very soon...

I LOVE the pic of you doing pushups in your wedding dress, which is gorgeous BTW! Hilarious. Burritos the size of my head are my favorite thing, I don't understand when people say things like "those are too big, I can never finish them, blah blah blah". I think I suck at choosing favorites because I am indecisive but I am with you in loving most types of exercise, this makes me remember I miss Zumba! My favorite thing to photograph is ridiculous pictures of my husband, usually while he's asleep.

Holly @ Pink-Runner.com said...

Hahahaha I LOVE the dance floor push ups!! So funny!

Christina @ The Athletarian said...

Oh em gee. Why can't we have burrito Thursdays instead of burger Thursdays?!?! What the effffffff woman! If you don't accompany me to that joint by the end of the month we are getting a divorce. Carter can have you all to himself.

Keri said...

I always love reading the answers to the questions! It was the perfect post to get to know you by!

To quote Ace: Holy testicle Tuesday!
I'm intrigued at the thought of a burrito the size of my head(!) I'll have to check that place out. And more chocolate cereal... um, and the pants that you say will hide my love handles.
You're so cool.

Hayley @ Oat Couture said...
