We got a jam packed weekend for you!
Ok so for the past two weeks I have embarked on a health journey, I have decided to take on the Tone It Up Bikini Series Challenge and workout twice a day and eat healthy for 8 weeks! This has created a bit of a change in my normal routine and in my activities. Which is why I have decided to add some healthy and active options to our weekly round up of weekend events in Toronto. But don’t worry, I also included an indulgent event at the bottom cause every girl needs a treat 😉
