Good morning from the gorgeous Inn on the Lake in @travelyukon! Horseback riding yesterday was so much fine I’d be happy to do it again, but instead we’re driving to the town of Carcross (short for Caribou Crossing) and boarding the train for a journey toward the Alaska border via Fraser, BC. Then we’ll turn around to get back to the inn for dinner and a good night’s sleep before canoeing on Saturday. #exploreyukon #explorecanada #gomedia2014

I’m doing this at Le Massif next week - they have a 7.5 km trail for it. Not sure if I should be excited or scared…

On Saturday Lolë was kind enough to bring me to Montreal to take part in their second White Yoga session, with over 2,000 people, all wearing white, joining together in a session at the Olympic Stadium led by teacher Lyne St-Roch. It was a very cool experience and I’m looking forward to next year’s iteration, scheduled to take place in Toronto!

Get out of the city to see the meteor shower at its finest

My birthday is during the Perseid meteor shower, and I remember on my 16th (I think?) birthday camping out on the deck with one of my best friends and falling asleep as we counted all the falling stars we could see.

Living in Toronto, meteor-watching hasn’t been quite as feasible, but this year I’ll be out of the city for it so I’ll try – and if you happen to be near Quebec City on August 10, you should head up to ski hill Mont Saint-Anne for a meteor-watching night. They’ll be running the lifts until 1 am and offering on-site telescopes, a barbecue service and a star-hunting contest – though honestly, if I were there, I’d pack a blanket and headlamp, take advantage of the lifts and wander off onto the hiking trails to find my own stargazing site.

Why Diets Don’t Work is a criticism of conflicting dieting messages, but it’s also a story of health. Kat Tancock teaches readers why it's okay to let go of "fat guilt" and a deprivation mindset, and she shows them how to focus instead on choosing and controlling their environments and being aware of external and internal eating cues.
