Things To Do in Toronto: January 2017

After all the activities and excitement in December, January can feel pretty blahhh! After all it seems with the strike of midnight on December 31st, the temperature automatically begins to drop, and keeps dropping; our bank accounts are feeling a little lighter while our waist lines are feeling a bit thicker; when the credit card statements start rolling in the appeal to plant ourselves on the sofa becomes top of our activity list.  

But don't stress my lovelies - I've round up some activities that are mostly FREE and take place in doors ... so grab your planners, get out your digital calendars and mark these dates ... bundle up and get out the door ... not only will it improve your mood , getting out and about will also help your waist line and cardio.
