Steal This Idea…

I am currently working (hanging) with a group of kick ass folks in Banff, Alberta…

Up Tunnel Moutnain there is this incredible place called The Banff Centre, a truly special place where people from all over the world come to work, create, play, inspire, write, paint, challenge, discuss, confer, explore…needless to say it is a safe place to get down with your bad self.

The Banff Centre, being as innovative as it is, offers Fettucinni Sticks in the cafes for the milk and sugar that you want to stir into your coffee. Such a neat and cool idea to save you from using wooden sticks and wasting precious trees. Seriously steal this idea…




The Challenge aka Stupid Ideas

Steaks and Beers!

For the next 10 days I will not:

  1. Eat Meat
  2. Eat Dairy
  3. Eat Wheat
  4. Eat Sugar
  5. Drink Booze (vodka counts)
  6. Drink Caffeine
  7. Smoke Cigarettes ( which i only do sometimes (but that sometimes is increasing) when i drink booze)
  8. and I promise to go to the gym everyday
  9. and to do yoga at least 5 days out of the 10
  10. and it looks like i will avoid my friends (kidding!)

For those of you who know me, you know this is going to be tough. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the things that I am banning over the next 10 days. For those of you who don’t know me 10 days doesn’t seem very long does it?

So far today: 1  hour at the Gym and 1 hour of yoga, none of the illegal foods/drinks in my body.

I’m excited to see if I feel any different on the other end. Wish me Luck or join me in doing your own Challenge/Cleanse/Stupid Idea!



In my kitchen right now…

I am boiling delicious beets. Yum! Thanks to the fab Erin for delivering all sorts of goodies from her garden!

Fall is coming and it’s my favorite time of year! I spent the afternoon walking around the Byward Market in Ottawa so many awesome things to see/eat/drink and buy. My favorite shot of the day:
