I hope you didn’t forget about me. I didn’t forget about you!
There have been several instances over the last 11 days where I have told myself there were good things to blog about. BUT: 1) I wasn’t in the mood to blog; and 2) I sort of had social media burnout. Sure, I was on vacation for about a week, but I was just in a moment of being fed up with blogs. And not just my own. twitter got annoying too. I suppose what really got me flustered was all the shameless self promotion. Who knows. Anyways, that’s over with and I am back in Calgary in my old routine of being a Betty who Bakes and Blogs and works out and walks the dog. Exciting.
So let’s have this post be a catch-up of what I have been up to lately.
I flew to Seattle to see my best friend. My connecting flight was on a teensy tiny plane.
But, I had my own aisle, so there was a bonus.
And I hung out with a baby
And I drank my FAVORITE beer, Pyramid Brewery Ale.
And I made Skinny Banana Blueberry Muffins
And I ate a lot of them with almond butter
And we went to Seattle for a Living Social St. Patty’s Day Cruise…and it was so much fun. Three of us drove up late in the afternoon, checked into our hotel, had dinner (and beer) and then boarded the ship where plenty of additional beers were consumed and promptly burned off with copious amounts of dancing. I think that night was the most fun I’ve had in about a year.
…and there are approximately 190 other photos that I won’t put on here from that night 😉
I also only worked out ONE out of the SIX days I was there. (3 mile run) I don’t think I gained any weight, but it sure as heck affected my attitude. Goes to show you HOW MUCH I need fitness in my life! My flight back to Calgary landed around 2:30PM on Wednesday, and I was on a treadmill by 4:30PM.
Speaking of fitness.. I joined a new gym! Granted, this gym isn’t as convenient as the Y-which is right across the street- but it is only about a 3 minute drive. The best part: ALL classes are included in the regular membership fee AND…there are two sides of the gym: one is co-ed and the other is women’s only. The women’s locker room connects the two sides, and I have already found myself flip-flopping from side to side to use different equipment or to have a different atmosphere. AND…their peak hours consist of no more than 10 or so members in the gym at the same time. Probably the best thing ever.
So that’s pretty much it as of late. I’ll check back in with my recent eats/recipes/workouts soon! (Because long posts are terrible!!)
