Oprah captivated the entire audience including myself as she talked for well over an hour and then another half hour as she sat down with George Stromboloposis, who is now the person who has interview Oprah the most, surpassing Barbara Walters. George has being touring with Oprah's Canadian dates, conducting an interview style intimate sit down.
Here are the few things that I really soaked in and walked away with ... The Devine, The Thread and The Whisper ... things all based on our own intuition and truly taking each step in our life knowing that it's preparing us for things to come.

If you're thinking of going to see Disney on Ice Treasure Trove at Copps Coliseum ... stop thinking and go see it!!
I took my friend Wendy and her two girls (5 & 3) last night and I gotta say we were all so impressed with the show. I've seen a few other Disney on Ice shows and I have to say this one was my favourite. I loved how they incorporated all the classic Disney characters. The best part of the show had to be the performers, man they can skate, so talented!! And the visuals, wow, the costume and set designs were impressive, we did a lot of "oohs and ahhhs" through out the show.
I'm not sure if I was allowed to take pictures of the show ... but I did, sorry in advance!!

Are you a fan of the 80's, then you won't want to miss out on the upcoming miniseries The ‘80s: The Decade That Made Us. It'll be a 6 part series shown over 3 consecutive nights beginning April 14 .... narrated by Rob Lowe ;)
According to National Geographic, “Rob Lowe represents the best of this particular project in that he can reflect knowingly on the 1980s because he was part of it, but also he is part of our contemporary culture and that’s what this series is all about. It’s not just a look back into the past, it’s really a look at how the past has shaped our contemporary life.”
I hope they show him on this series ... because he's ....well .... he's HOT!! LOL!!!

Since the end of November I started a new exercise regimen ... due to a change in my schedule I needed to find a gym closer to my home and something that worked with my hours ... sound familiar? It's a problem for a lot of us, how do we find the time to workout.
So I joined Stoney Creek Crossfit and I am loving it. I gotta say it's the reason why I am still motiviated to working out. I also love it because no matter what fitness level you are you fit in. It's not about comparing yourself to others, it's about your self accomplishments. I am motivated to do better than I did my last class.
Here's an example of the most elite Crossfitters in the world. Here's a clip from last years Crossfit games. Do I ever think I could be at this level ... NO!!! ...
