Toronto is a strange city right now. With the G8/G20 preparations and meetings going on, we were all in a bit of a state of wonder this week. Thankfully my clients were all very accommodating and were able to get to the gym for most of their normal workouts. While it has been a pain rearranging our lives for this summit, especially with a long weekend next week, I can only say I hope to see good things come of it. So… Let’s hope the leaders are all fit and healthy (do you think they exercise and eat properly?) so they can be level headed while making decisions about our country.

Activity: Attended Bellies and Strollers at Woodbine Park and did about half the workout before heading to the gym myself.
