BACK IN 2015

I’M BACK!

Well it’s the first Monday of 2015, which means for most of you it’s back to the daily work grind. For me being self employed, this means attempting to get my chocolate and turkey filled butt to the gym!

I admit I am NOT a gym rat… in fact I hate it! I am envious of people that love the gym.

Yoga = hate it gives me a headache

Running = apparently I have a weird run

Swimming = I might drown

Anyway 2015 is my year to turn myself into a definite GYM RAT.

Day one:

Well my progress so far is my outfit… got that sorted!

The Good Press is situated in a deliciously warm and inviting basement shop located 87 Yorkville Ave, Toronto. On top of their stunning interior and alluring atmosphere, they offer a wide variety of treats such as: made to order fresh juices, smoothies, grab and go cold press items with quirky names such as Eye Spy, prepared salads, and even açai bowls served with organic granola and fresh fruit.

The Good Press have also recently released the news that they offer juice cleanses!

This really is the place to get your fresh and healthy on! And, with so much variety it will bring you back every day… and trust me you will want to go.

So go check them out today! Make sure to try my fav drink – Emerald City (kale, cucumber, celery, parsley, romaine, apple, lemon, ginger)… YUM!
