Tosca Reno Live


You know when someone has inspired you 
from a far
and then you meet them 
and they burst your bubble

When all that you believed 
about them was so spectacular
and motivational that they could not possibly 
live up to your expectations

~~

Well, that is so not case with the 

Fabulous Tosca Reno

Pumping up before this event, in her hotel room
‘when your energy is up, 
you are primed for learning’


The first time that I actually heard her speak live,
 was at the
International Fitness and Club Business Conference 
and Trade Show
held in Toronto in August of 2012.  

She was receiving the Life Time Achievement Award 
on behalf of  the recently deceased 
love of her life Robert Kennedy, 
the Publisher of such fabulous magazines as 
Muscle and Fitness, Oxygen 
and Eat Clean, to name a few.



Tosca has endured and thrived through 
a crazy roller coaster journey the past few years, 
with the passing of her stepson, 
husband and then 
most recently the bankruptcy of the business, 
which was such a huge element in their lives.

Throughout all of this, 
she has remained the consummate professional 
and dove into her clean eating lifestyle 
and fitness sensibility to cope 
with the huge burden of stress 
that was upon her, 
this would have crippled most ordinary people. 

She decided to use this time 
to get back in fighting shape
(what better way to combat stress, work it out)
 and participate in a physique competition 
and WIN that sucker 
(with Robert cheering from above)

she blew it out of the water

On Saturday, I was fortunate to be able to attend 
an intimate event
with the Eat Clean Lady herself.

Inspiration personified as I am in my 51st year,
 so without a doubt this was a huge thrill for me

I was a volunteer at this one day event 
sponsored by CanFitPro
Canada’s authority 
on the 
Business of Fitness Education and Certification

An inspiring
(and information packed)
talk on how 
Eating Clean
will guarantee 
you get more out of life

~

As a volunteer this found me there much
 earlier than the sun rising
The hoards of fans were still in bed, 
some were probably making their way
to the venue at that time.   
I was stationed at a post to direct vendors 
and delegates
to the event location 
within the large convention centre

Fortunately for me, 
I just happened to be there when she was arriving
to check out the staging for the big moment.
I briefly spoke with her 
and mentioned that I had just tweeted a comment
about her, she was with her daughter, 
she is lovely and gracious
and works just as hard
if not more behind the scenes
of this bold brand

AND when I got home, I was informed that.....

 I won an autographed copy of her new book



'The Start Here Diet'
I am super excited, 
all I had to do was tweet with her #hashtag 
throughout the event 
and my name was thrown in the hat

I will get into more detail of all
 of the fabulous Nutritional content
 from this event in my next post

I lapped up all of her knowledge 
that she delivered with passion
 and eloquence, like a well used sponge.

Look out, my renewed enthusiasm
 to get back to my fitness roots 
has been kicked up a notch.

I will take all of this advice, 
and then, 
look out,
 anything is possible.

~~

Tell me what steps you are taking 
to shift your life into the next gear today!

I hope you had fun this weekend!

Peace Love
and
Hugs
