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!

  1. [...] Mix it up! Try some produce you’ve never picked up before, you just might like it! When I made my soup a couple weeks back- it was the first time I tried beets.. and guess what? I liked [...]

  3. [...] Here is the recipe. Things I added to this batch that I didn’t in the last were- Kidney Beans, zucchini and banana squash. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper, and Trader Joe’s 21 Salute Spice.  This batch is just sooo delicious. It is filling and feels good to know you are eating NOTHING but good wholesome veggies. (No need for multi vitamins with this in your fridge!) [...]

    Just stumped upon your blog, I’m really enjoying it. I have a pot of soup on the stove now and decided to add some beets after your video, thanks!
