Watching the Olympics has become just another full time job in my house. In between bouts training, traveling, cooking & driving kids around I have spent 2 weeks glued to the television cheering on the athletes as they competed in this fabulous competition.
The Olympics get me so excited (especially during Canada vs. USA hockey games)! And a little emotional, too (Joannie Rochette you are some kind of saint). Watching the closing ceremonies yesterday left me with a feeling of great Canadian pride. I could feel it seeping from every pore of every person seated in that auditorium and it was extremely inspiring. I do hope my non-Canadian fans felt Vancouver was a kind & gracious host. We were very excited to have the games and all of you on our home turf. Way to go to every person who competed, especially my fellow Canadians who really rocked it and brought home lots and lots of gold! We aren't a very boastful or prideful nation, but I can say today with all my heart that I am SO proud to be Canadian.
But now what am I to do? Are the Olympics really over?
I guess I'll have some extra time on my hands... NOT!
The Arnold Sports Festival and Expo is literally DAYS away! 3 days to be exact.
I spent all weekend eating VERY clean and Cooler 1... grilled chicken breasts, steamed veggies, very little complex carbs. Ugh! Sometimes I forget how hard it can be, but I am determined to look my best at the expo.
These Olympics have inspired me to kick it into high gear. What have they done for you?
