  • Hello…

    March.1! Welcome! ¬†A day I pay rent, get paid and FEATURE my Tomboy That Wears Makeup Of The Month… She is RAD…. and maybe needs a bit more time answering the questions..That’s ok!!!

    In the meantime, I want to say THANK YOU to all the TTWM of Month since I started this blog

    September was Tennis player/model Liis Sober

    October was Jazz singer Jackee Guilou

    November we had rock star bass player Alison Toews

    December was fitness pro/model Svetlana Romanova

    January we had the founder of Operation Beautiful/blogger Caitlin Boyle

    February we had the beautiful, funny all star runner Skinny Runner

    I guess that means I have been blogging for just over 6 months! Time flies! Having this blog has definitely impacted my life in a positive way. Sure I have to think up things to write everyday, but it keeps me on my toes!

    I made it downstairs to do some laps this morning for my triathlon training. I set out for 40 laps and settled for 25. I think I am FINALLY improving my kick. (just call me crazy legs!) I’ve been having a hard time with getting the proper kicking technique down- but I think I’m finally getting into a groove!

    swimming laps in pool!

    Like that I am always wearing the same green cap and blue suit in every swim shot? ¬†Tonight I am running with the club, we are do a tempo run. We are supposed to keep our “race pace” for 20 minutes… It will be a good run I reckon.

    Who wants to make some awesome veggie soup??? I got this recipe from here.

    Ingredients I used (really you can use anything, but make sure to have the “root veggies”)

    Yam

    Sweet Potato

    Regular potato (I used 2 small red potato’s)

    garlic

    ginger

    onion

    peas

    corn

    beans

    brocoli

    cauliflower

    celery

    turnip

    beet

    red pepper

    Veggie Stock

    huge can of tomato’s (diced, crushes, whatev’s!)

    Check out this video for a more in depth step by step!

    You can also keep the big pot in your fridge and just bring it out, throw it on the stove whenever you want some (good for about a week I’d imagine- unless you freeze)

    Enjoy! It’s so good..

    If you have any questions, let me know!

    Talk sooooooon!
