How is it August 12th already? This summer is seriously flying by and I am not prepared for another Canadian winter. The one redeeming quality is that it’s my birthday month but I might consider trading in all future birthdays for an endless summer…Winter is coming….Please tell me someone else appreciates my Game of Thrones references!
No surprise, this weekend was as fabulous as the last and despite a bad case of the Mondays I’m trying to look on the marvelous side. In case you’re wondering what happened to that Half-Marathon training I was talking about, it has presently been put on the back-burner. My IT band pain is back with a vengeance so running just isn’t an option at the moment. I’m focusing more on strength training and getting in my cardio in other ways. Also talking with my chiropractor about changing my running stride. Any forefoot striker converts out there with advice for me?
Thank you to the wonderful Katie for hosting us. Now let’s get to it…
Marvelous is friday night family dinners. All 9 of us plus C equals A LOT of food. I was in charge of the protein and decided to try out Fit Foodie Find’s Lemon-Salmon Kabobs. This was literally the easiest recipe and everyone loved it! It has officially been added to my must-make-again list.
playing with your food. I’d initially dumped all the berries and banana on one of my Carrot Cake Waffles
but the second I went to take a picture my OCD kicked in. I went a little overboard…I’d like to believe I enjoyed it even more since I put so much effort into it.
father-daughter gym sessions. Check out my Dad killin’ it on the elliptical. I actually had a way better picture where I photo-bombed my Dad while he was planking but I by-accidentitally deleted it. Great job Dad!
getting the bikes fixed up (even if the summer is ending). Both bikes are now good-to-go and since I’m attempting to not pound the pavement I’m hoping I can discover a new-found love for cycling. Wish me luck!
nixing your plans and opting for copious amounts of Sushi instead. C and I had planned to get dinner and spend the night at The Taste of the Danforth
Greek festival but opted to stay in instead. We heard the crowds were crazy and this gal ain’t so great with lines. My patience is not my strong-suit. A bottle of vino and sushi from Sushi on Bloor
on a patio is much more up my alley.
all things free! Especially when it is yoga and kind bars. Lululemon offers free yoga in Trinity Bellwoods park so Mic and I decided to try it out. The class was fantastic and the weather could not have been more perfect. Did I mention I seriously love Toronto?
brunch. Enough said. Caesars and Huevos Rancheros from Beast.
The second best Huevos Rancheros I have ever had (behind Coppelia’s
Do they offer free fitness classes around you? How was your weekend? I hope it was marvelous!
