Hello Hello,

Fasted Yoga this AM. I love Yoga. If I can keep this up for a long, long time I’ll be happy. Being able to stretch your body to new lengths and feel no aches or pain is amazing. Stretching is so important. Even though you’re not attending Yoga, do some simple stretches everyday in your living room, like the ones you did in Grade 5 Gym Class.

Brunch was the usual Egg mess with Bacon.
100% of the time, the reason my eggs are over cooked is due to tumblr. I swear I check on them, they’re far from being done.. I get caught up in Tumblr.. BAM—OVERCOOKED.

Back at the Gym- 30 Minute sprints and 30 minute speed walk while waiting for boys to get off the equipment. Worked on upper body with Free Weights.

Post-Workout Smoothie= AMAZING. Seriously I’m a smoothie Queen.
Greek Yogurt, Avocado, Raspberries, Blueberries, Whey Protein and Water.

Dinner was Basically Breakfast all over again. Sautéed Veg and 3 eggs, not over cooked this time.

Trying to budget, leaving for NewYork in a week.. Eeeee!!

Happy Health :))

Today has been a weird day.

Spent the day with J which meant no Yoga-BOO! and no Gym-BOO! Men annoy me…

Had a pretty Vanilla Latte at my Fav Cafe with a Gluten Free Muffin-Honey Sweetened.

Lunch was some Indian/Caribbean food- Curry Chicken and Spinach.

J was jelly that I ate Steak while he was away so he insisted on Steak for dinner, I ain’t complaining. Noms dinner.

Back at err tomorrow—Morning yoga, bacon, gym, smoothie usual weekday shenanigans, got to feel somewhat comfortable with myself before I eat without restriction on our Vacation.

Happy Health :))

Ahoy!

Breakfast was a big mess of veg, bacon and eggs.

Hot Yoga was my only exercise of the day. Super lazy and drowsy.

Made a Blueberry Mug Muffin for lunch. Coconut Oil, Coconut Flour, Blueberries, egg, baking soda, erythritol, salt, cream and topped with Coconut Butter. So moist and good! Defs make again.

J’s home from the US. Went for Coffee and watch Hercules. Predictable but good.
I did however eat some popcorn.. Bought at the grocery store- non-GMO lightly salted. You don’t know how to Movie —until you bring your own snacks and drinks.

Dinner was Leftover Kelp Noodle Stir Fry mmm.

Felt good to relax today. 9 more days until our big trip. Still don’t see any result from my exercise and diet- to be expected, doesn’t happen over night.

Happy Health :))

Daily Eats&Activities

Breakfast: Butter Sautéed Veg with 3 fried Eggs and Melted Old Cheddar on top.. SO GOOD YUM.

Went to Hot Yoga- Really busy hot sweaty stinky class, boo.

Hit up the Big Saturday Farm Market, Got some Local Goodies: Chicken Breast, Bacon, Cherries, Green Beans, Broccoli and Eggs. 

Wasn’t feeling the confinement of the Gym today so I went to the Track. Ran 5 Laps and did the Cardio Workout above. Never sweated so much!

Usual Protein Shake for post workout noms.

GAHHH! I really love to cook! and Enjoy my Meals throughly. 2 nights in a row I nailed it! 
Kelp Noodle Stir Fry. Bacon, Chicken, Ginger, Garlic, Onion, Coconut Milk, Chili Flakes, Coconut Amino, Fish Sauce, Zucchini, Peppers, Green Beans, Cabbage and Broccoli. Home Run fo real tho. So Good. Veg was cooked perf, noodles were nice and soft, flavour was spot on..

Pretty Good Day. 

Been over 2 months now since I moved. First weekend alone. 
I really miss home. I miss my friends and family so much. Summers so big for me on the West Coast. Camping trips, music festivals, hanging at the cabin with friends, beach days, lake days, BBQ, soaking in the vitamin D… I just really miss it all…

I really don’t feel “body ready” for our trip in just over a week to Miami.. I’ve been trying on my bathing suit daily and just do not like what I see… I’m aware I need to be a bit more kind to myself but it so fucking hard. All of my goals will take time and I need to be patient. I need to keep doing what I’m doing, and soon enough Ill see the results and reap the benefits, but for now I need to love what I got.

Happy Health :))

What a great day.

Woke up early and went to Yoga-fasted. Really nice class.
J picked me up and we went for Breakfast at our Fav spot.
J’s off to the US for the night/day.

Gym’d around lunch: 30 minute sprint intervals, 90 reps of each; Burpees, squat jumps, jumping jacks and jumping front kicks. Finished with stretching. and enjoyed my fav protein smoothie.

Ended up going to Yoga AGAIN. I’m still doing my 40days-$40 so I might as-well take advantage. 5km walk there and back.

Stopped at the Market and picked up some Local green beans, Portobello mushrooms and a small yam plus a Organic Ribeye Steak!!! Night to myself so I’m treating me right!

Smothered myself in coconut oil from head to toe after having a bath :))

Oh My, seriously, why don’t I eat steak every night. Such a satisfying dinner…. I’m eating roasted garlic by itself because I can.
Got a lot of exercise in today and enjoyed every bit of it. I really needed a night to myself to just be alone and eat delicious food and focus on me.

Hope your all well!

Happy Health:))

Eats&Activities:

Woke up late, didn’t sleep good last night so I caught up on some zzz in the morning.
Sleep is so wacky when you live without a daily schedule or routine.

Didn’t eat breakfast because I was late to Yoga. Class felt even better on an empty stomach.

Still was feeling good after Yoga, stomach wasn’t screaming for food so I hit the Gym. 30 minute sprint intervals. Barley got through them, had to push myself to the limit. Spent a lot of time with the free weights- focused on arms. Decreased my weights a bit and push it until my arms were falling off.

Protein Smoothie for breakfast/lunch/post workout: 1/2C Yogurt, 1/2C Raspberries, 1/2C Blueberries, 3tbs Hemp Hearts, Protein Powder and water to thin. Still hungry after so I made a mug muffin.

Dinns was a Salad with 2 Hard Boiled Eggs.

Day 3 Complete.

Looks like Ill have a night to myself tomorrow as J’s going to the US. I want to make a kickass dinner for myself.. I’ve had Kelp Noodles in the fridge for long time…so maybe something to do with them?

Im going to struggle this weekend I can tell. Taste of Toronto is happening. Loads of good food.

Happy Health :))

Solid day.

Great Hot Yoga Class, thoroughly enjoyed myself. Stretches getting deeper.
Gymed shortly after Yoga.
Killed myself with the sprints today. I increased my sprint speed on the treadmill. At one point I thought my legs would give out and send me flying. I stuck it out and kept my mind on what I want to achieve.
I always act out stupid scenario in my head such as- if I win this race I get 1,000,000$$ or If I just keep going I win the Olympics… It works. I have some really messes up ones like- if I don’t finish this sprint somebody dies… Slightly fucked I know, butttt it works.
Knowing I’ll be gyming erryyday, I’m trying to space out my workout so they don’t get repetitive/boring.
I just worked on ABs and finished with 100 squats.
Enjoyed my Favourite Smoothie Post workout/lunch.
Dinner was a big green salad with Sardines and Salmon. Wild and from a tin. Easy dinner, didn’t feel like cooking or spending money.

Day 2 was a success.

Your dreams are attainable you just have to go for them peeps!

Happy Health :))

Ahoy!

Haven’t enjoyed this pile of food for some days now.. Still as tasty as always.

I have a plan for the next 2 weeks taped on the Kitchen Cabinet- mostly for J to comprehend what Im doing and better understand. 
I only have 2 weeks until MIAMI!, not very long. I’ve set high standards but also realize that if I do not make it to my goals, I’m not going to let it ruin my entire Vacation.

So, for the next 2 weeks i’ll be eating Low Carb Primal. Come this weekend I hope J can understand, and not push me into temptation, but help me along.

Ill be doing daily Yoga mid-morning. might I add- yesterdays class was so great! Plus I think in making some friend with familiar people? 

I’ll also be going to the Gym daily with 1 rest day. Sounds a bit much I know but i’ve planned my days out so its not hell everyday. Yesterday I did 30 minute sprint and focused on arms only, followed by stretching. Today Ill do 30 minute sprints and focus on abs and squats.

My accountability is my Very Best Friend back Home, and all of you!!

Seriously I did not know you could Video Call on SnapChat! Funniest shit of my life yesterday. Her and I spend our days snapping and texting from morning to evening. I have not laughed so hard since I moved! SnapChat is the most hilarious App ever made, especially if the person on the other end is just as fucked up as you, my face hurt so bad.
I honestly don’t know what I would do without her.
Moving from everything I’ve ever known and loved, to a place where I spend my days alone, in an unfamiliar place… Its sucks, it will bring you down if you let it.

Any who! Heres to the next 2 weeks!

Noms- Low Carb Paleo Pancakes.
Woke up craving them soooo… Here they are. I just whisked together ingredients until I got a consistency I liked. No need for Syrup or added sugar, thawed Raspberries and warmed Coconut Butter do the trick.

Must go to Yoga today. After having some days off I crave it. My whole body craves it! I love the feeling I felt from daily Yoga. Something just changes?. Plus its nice to be around positive- like minded people, enjoying something together. 
Need to sweat out and burn off these carbs and sugar from the Weekend so a Gym sesh is in order shortly after my Yoga class.

Yesterday at the beach I was ill-prepared for the day. I also thought to myself- there is no way I would feel comfortable frolicking in my bathing suit, I’m just not ready for that…
Lots of beautiful girls with nice bodies- I just cant help myself- comparing me to them…. (Horrible I know). As a woman in this society I find this behaviour within me daily……. Something to work on for sure. 

We are going to Florida in about 2weeks. Its hot and humid there.. I’d like to be comfortable wearing my bikini at the Beach.. I mean its fucking Miami, Florida… And I’m going to be wearing Shorts and a Tank the whole time….NO.. I love water!!! 
This will be a push to get my ass in gear!
Being with someone who’s the complete opposite of you is hard. On J’s days off, I tend to eat crap.
Im not blaming it on anyone, and I know a couple days of sub-pare dining ain’t going to make me fat, as long as I jump back into rhythm (which I do). 
Yes it is hindering my weight-loss, but this is the Season of my life and I’m dealing with it as best I can. My eyes always stay on the prize.

Don’t wallow in the Dark. Get the F up and get it done!

Well shiiiiiit. I got burnt really, really burnt :((

Spent the day at the Beach. Since moving from the WestCoast where I saw the Beautiful Ocean Daily and spent my Summers near Water, I’m truly missing water.
Wasn’t prepared to bake in the sun all day..

Breakfast and Dinner kinda day. Bowl of fresh Fish on Sushi Rice, ate about a cup of Rice.

All in all enjoyable, fun day.
I need to remember to wear sunscreen… Oweee :(

Happy Health :))

Breakfast Date with J.

Went to my fav Organic Cafe.

Omelet with Greens, Golden Beets and Goat Cheese no bread- Side of Roast Veg.

No idea whats the Plan today, going to make it to the gym later.

Feeling a bit of fluff from weekend eats. Not a big problem, back in the game this week!

Well, well, well.. Look who it is… ME!

Day off with J. That means, carbs, no workout, no yoga, and some treats yo.
Ain’t nothing wrong with that once in a while though.
Breakfast/Lunch was some of our fav, tasty Curry Chicken, cabbage and cauliflower.. Mmm.
Dinner was Pho= Carb overload.
Maybe a bit of Gluten-Free cheesecake later :))
Although I have my not so low carb Paleo Meals featuring Sugar and Carbs, I always keep them Gluten Free. I find it very simple to stay away from grain and gluten and consider Rice a pretty safe starch.
Whatever floats your boat, live a little and enjoy those moments! Love your body!

Hope your weekend is kicking ass!

Happy Health :))

(That is gum, we are not a couple of hicks)

The Effects of LCHF have set in.
My hungers gone down about 5 notches. I have such a beautiful Sexy Avocado just waiting to be eaten, its almost over ripe… But I’m soo satiated I cant even think of eating it, wahh.

Wasn’t too hungry this AM but decided to whip up a smaller Breakfast. Just 2 eggs fried with some old cheddar on a bed of sautéed Spinach and Cabbage.

Going to Head to Yoga later. I double checked class timezzzz.

Might take a jaunt to the Saturday Market, we shall see.  

Enjoy your day lovely peeps.

Oi Friends!

Today was weird.
I looked at the wrong date and ended up missing my Hot Yoga Class. The Next one being at 530PM which I find awkward. I usually like to eat between 5:30-6:30PM.
Plus J gets home from work then.
I ended up napping in the Afternoon for 2 hours. No reason why? I get enough sleep. I guess I was just bored? I hate napping. I always feel so groggy and disoriented after waking.
Did not feel like going to the gym at all. Guess what.. I got my lazy nappy ass up and went to the gym.
Fuck my knee hurts. I did a bad thing and pushed through 30 minute sprint intervals followed by an inclined speed walk for 30 mins. So dumb.. I did my version of Yoga. It was fun. Im kinda getting the flow and remembering a lot of poses.

Lunch/Post Workout was a tasty salad with. Wild Sockeye Salmon, Half Avocado, Mixed Greens, Cabbage, Heirloom Tomatoes and a dressing of Evoo+Lemon.
Dinner tonight was Baked Tilapia with Steamed Veggies loaded with Butter.

I need a life.. Everyday feels so wasteful.

Happy Health :))

LowCarb Raspberry-Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.

Didn’t follow a Recipe. Used up leftover Ricotta from Cheesecake, whisked eggs, added Raspberries a bit of Lemon Zest and Juice, a touch of Erythritol, pinch of Baking Powder and Salt. Topped with Freshly whipped Cream and Raspberries. Made about 3 Pancakes. Im stuffed and Ready for the Day.

Im concerned about my knee… Im hoping its just my shoes. I did have a knee injury about 6 years ago, I went through Physiotherapy- took a Year off.
Hoping we go to the States this Weekend. Canada’s a little late to the Shoe game.. I saw some kick-ass runner when we were there last… Fingers crossed.

Heading to Hot Yoga later.

Enjoy your day!!
Happy Health :))
