Gym days are the best days!

I worked until 11 pm last night so it was pretty much home and straight to bed!

We were up early to enjoy the morning with a coffee and a delicious breakfast to get us ready to hit the gym……

Greek Yogurt with strawberries, maca, bee pollen, chia, hemp and toasted coconut

Felt pretty energetic today so I was hoping for a strong run

Why is my head so big?

Hit the gym for a good run. I wasn’t feeling very creative today so I basically copied my run from Monday with a bit of moderation

The last 7 Minutes were faster then the last run as Shane’s ex wife just happened to hop on the treadmill next to mine looking all perfect and smelling like the perfume counter at The Bay


So clearly almost making myself thrown-up was the only option I had at this time……I know you understand.

After the gym we had our protein shakes in the car along with some walnuts as we weren’t going right home.

Almond milk and plant based protein…..not the tastiest but it does the trick
Walnuts and Coffee!

After running a few errands it was home to relax a bit.

I made some homemade Cashew Butter

Whirl up some raw Cashews
Add a bit of hot water slowly until desired texture
Store in the fridge.

I am not sure how long it is good for as it is long gone around here before it could ever go bad. I will be using some of it in a Cashew Butter Chicken dish sometime soon. I will post the recipe when I do!

Getting ready to go out for a Sushi Date! Been looking forward to it all week.

Have a great night


Food prep, a shoulder workout, a little mussel and it’s still friggin freezing here…….

Since I work 12 hour days I eat all my meals at work on work days. I start at 6 am, so that means up at 4:10am. This makes for A LOT of meal prep. When it comes to my work meals I stay super basic and boring. Mostly eating the same thing every day. I would rather have my tasty healthy foods for my days off. It works for me. For Shane I get more creative with his work meals, because he wouldn’t eat so healthy if he was eating grilled chicken and broccoli every day like I do.

He is more likely to get a coconut chicken curry or a quinoa salad. Not the tasteless stuff I eat.

Plain Grilled Chicken
Roasted Broccoli

After my 6-6 yesterday I went to my work gym for a quick 40 minute weight workout. I mostly worked my shoulders.


I love a good shoulder work out. I am really trying to keep up my weight training up when all I really want to do is run right now.

It’s almost a mussel……

Just thought I’d share this obnoxious selfie….why not right?!



Just a side note……

Summer is never coming to Toronto. It sure feels that way …….sigh


Is it warm where you are? If so I’m so jealous……..
