I was a good girl today. I ended up getting my lazy ass outta bed, guzzle an ocean of agua, then make this bowl-o-yum-yum:
This was a mix of oats, almond milk, espresso protein powder, a bit of honey, scoop of chia seeds, and a spoonful of almond butter. In a word: delish. In another word: filling. In three words: hit the spot.
Then it was time to get in gear. Yeah, tough to do on a Sunday, especially when vino was consumed the night before. But, I’m a tough soldier and rallied. We met up with a bunch of people (my new friends. They better like it!) to do a beep test. Ya know, you run from one end of the end of he gym to the other before the beep and you keep doing it until you don’t reach the other end in time. (I did this once in high school and it was a huge joke. It basically separated those of us who played sports from those who sat on the couch and ate Ho Hos and Cheetos). Anyhoo, we did this whole shibang at the CPS fitness center (Calgary Police Service) since most of the dudes are cops. I was able to get in a great 40 min cardio/strength interval workout in before the test, too. Gold star for me. Come beep test time though…. I didn’t do so hot. A) because my lungs are still adjusting to he altitude, and B) there was NO ventilation in the gym. Ugh. Here’s a little post-workout pic for your viewing pleasure:
Pardon the poo colored bathroom wall. You may see this god awful poo wall in the background for at least a couple more months until Tyler and I get in paint-the-house mode.
Boyfriend just made me this perfect omelette, filled with leftover meats ad veggies from last nights pizza making party. It was so perfect looking, I almost didn’t want to eat it.
But, I was starving, so I snapped a pic and dove right the heck in on that bad boy.
Currently watching Wheel of Fortune (yeah I know, it’s 3:30. The time shift here is a-muh-zing…I get to watch Amazing Race at 6 tonight too!!!)
Question: is anybody out there? Who is reading this awesome post? Is this stupid? Do I have to resort to the old fashioned way of journalling (i.e.: pen & paper. Eww) I’d love a teensy tiny ounce of feedback, y’all. Thankya!
Haahahaha! Just as I was reading the “Is anybody out there”, I was listening to Pink Floyd’s “Is there anybody out there?” and was completely taken aback at the coincidence! I suppose I was fated to give you this feedback then: I thought this post was great! You seem to have a wonderful sense of humor and its nice to momentarily delve into you’re busy world! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
i’m out here too! and keep posting food…lots of it. because i’m stealing all those ideas.
Sweet! Thinking of eventually making a recipe tab! We’ll see.
I’m reading! I’m glad you are adjusting to Canada ay, Haha bad Canadian joke. By the way you look awesome! You will be my motivation when I hit the gym this week. Ok miss you and I’ll keep reading your fabulous blog!
Hey there you Funny Canadian aka USA Girl! ;-D
To answer your question, YES!, I have been well entertained by your postings! Thanks!
You make it easy to imagine where and what life is like there. Need to include more pics of your peeps.Bet your family is really enjoying your blog. Keep ’em coming — I’ll be reading (soon from TX)! ❤
I think you’re hilarious. And now you’re on my google reader, so I’m reading all of your posts haha. That is all.
i’m reading ( a little late, sorry!)! i have that same tank top– i hope you got yours on sale like me:) although, do you find this one to annoyingly ride up? i have 2 other tanks in this same style and love them, but for some reason, this one ends up being a belly shirt… and we all know that’s not cute when you have tight spandex on!
it rides up a bit, not as bad as my looser fitting Run Inspired tanks. I don’t know why I even buy those because I end up doing everything BUT running in them (mountain climbers are the worst for shirt-ride-up!)! And damn right I got it on sale!
