Thanks to Jenn for hosing.
Breakfast was my usual fruit, cereal, and yogurt. This time it was an orange and strawberry yogurt.
For lunch I had a salad of romaine lettuce, carrots, broccoli, croutons, and salad dressing. I also had a multigrain bun on the side.
Dinner was a cheeseburger at 5 Guys. the guy making the burgers was singing along with the radio, he looked like he was having so much fun at work.
Where’s the last restaurant you ate out at?
I’m glad today is a new week cause the last 7 days have been busy! Between work and school I haven’t had much down time.
I did manage to make a little time for fun stuff though. Thursday night I went to my last restorative yoga class. It was always a challenge to get my mind to settle down, but I could definitely see a difference from the first class to Thursday night’s class.
Friday night I had a date. We ended up going to see Non Stop. I was expecting an action movie, but it was more of a thriller. I guess there’s only so much action you can have in a movie that takes place on a plane.
Apparently I did something horrible to my back this week. I’m moving slow and taking it easy. I’ve been applying heat cause so far it’s been the only thing that helps it feel better. I’m hoping it feels better in the next would days cause it’s pretty miserable at the moment.
What exciting thing did you do this week?
Thanks again to Jenn for hosting!
Breakfast was cereal, vanilla yogurt, and an orange.
For lunch I had a ham and cheese sandwich on a multigrain ciabatta bun. On the side I had a salad of spinach, cantalope, and strawberries. I usually never thing of adding fruit to my salads, but I should do it more often, it was really tasty.
Dinner was spaghetti and my dad’s amazing meatballs. I’m pretty sure I could eat the meatballs every day and not get tired of them.
Thanks again to Jenn for hosting.
Breakfast was my usual of yogurt, cereal, and apple sauce. It’s not very exciting but it’s easy to put together.
For lunch I made a sandwich on a multigrain ciabatta bun with chicken and cheese inside. I had an apple and a granola bar (not pictured) on the side.
I ended up swinging by the grocery store in the afternoon. While I was there I picked up this delicious salad. You really can’t go wrong with anything that has berries on it.
What’s your favourite kind of sandwich?
I found out on Friday while talking to one of my boss’s that this was a long weekend thanks to a holiday on Monday. I had no idea, so I’m glad someone mentioned it to me. It’s always nice to have an extra day to get caught up on things and then a short work week.
After work and school on Friday I started the weekend off with a late lunch of sushi. Kinjo has a great selection of vegetarian/non fish sushi, so that’s usually where I like to go. They always give you Pocky with your order, which I always enjoy.
Saturday was spent doing homework and yoga. I had one of my favourite yoga teachers, so it was an extra special class. I left feeling great.
I spent some time catching up on the last season of Mad Men. The next and final season starts in April, so I thought I’d refresh my memory of what happened. Can you believe I had totally forgotten about Bob Benson?
Today the plan is to power through some more homework and get some stuff done around the house.
What’s your favourite kind of sushi?
I managed to get in three workouts this week. I’ve realized I need to take more time for myself – when I’m not working or doing school. Yoga is the perfect thing for that. It gets me moving and yet at the same time I leave my mat feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Wednesday I went to an Iyengar style yoga. The teacher was new to me and great with giving detailed instructions without giving so many details that it got overwhelming.
I have restorative classes on Thursday nights. This week’s was just as good as it usually is. The teacher is actually a co-worker of mine, which makes it pretty fun. She’s not afraid of silence during class, which is really nice so I can fully relax into each posture.
This afternoon I went to my usual ashtanga class. Because the teachers rotate through, it’s always kind of fun to see how their teaching styles differ. Today’s teacher was one of my favourites. I know I’m always going to have to work hard during this class, but once I’m done I’m so thankful I went cause I always feel so good afterwards.
What kind of yoga do you enjoy the most?
To be honest I had kind of been dreading today. Is Valentine’s Day something anyone really looks forward to? If you’re singly you’re constantly reminded that you’re single. If you’re in a relationship there’s either a lot of pressure to do something or you’re disappointed when that awesome thing you were expecting doesn’t happen.
Ok, I admit I might be a little bitter.
Maybe it’s because my expectations were pretty low, but today turned out better than I was expecting. I ended up having sushi for lunch today. It was amazing good as always. I had a heart shaped cookie for dessert. I have a thing for sprinkles. I don’t know what it is, but if they’re on something, it tastes 1000% better. Let me tell you, there were a lot of sprinkles on that cookie. One of my bosses gave me Lindt chocolates. Lindt’s are my absolute favourite. I did a good deed by buying that Valentine’s Day bag of candy at school today. Half of the money went towards the student’s association, and half went to Inn from the Cold. Plus I got candy out of it. You can’t go wrong with that kind of deal.
How was your Valentine’s Day?
Thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting.
Breakfast was an orange, cereal, and some yogurt.
I had egg salad, crackers, and an apple (unpictured) for lunch.
For dinner I had a taco salad of spinach, taco meat, crumbled up taco shell, salsa, olives, and sour cream. I don’t know what it is about taco salads, but they’re always so good.
What was your favourite meal this week?
Yesterday Canada kind of made history. For the first time in recent memory (and possibly ever), Canada was in first place in the medal standings at the Olympics. That’s pretty cool. Although it didn’t last long (Norway is now in the lead with 11, Canada is in second with 9), I have to admit I was pretty proud. It’s been all over the media here.
It’s pretty cool to hear about the stories of the athletes. On the second day of the Olympics two Canadian sisters won gold and silver in women’s moguls. Mark McMorris won bronze in snowboard slopestyle with a broken rib. A Canadian cross country ski coach helped out a Russian athlete who’d broken his ski during a crash on the course. He ran out on the course and switched out the ski with a spare he had and the Russian was able to finish. That’s what the Olympics are about.
What have been your favourite Olympic moments so far?
I was taking all of my old chemistry notes out of my binder to prepare for my next chem class. Turns out that between notes and questions, I had a stack of papers almost 3 inches high. It was a little surprising to see how much work I had done since the end of August.
I needed Vietnamese food bad this weekend. Luckily I had a vermicelli dish on Saturday for lunch. It was delicious and exactly what I needed.
I couldn’t pass up some Valentine’s day chocolate at the grocery store the other day. I’m single this year so I decided to buy some for myself. Lindt’s are my absolute favourite. In case George Clooney is reading, yes, I am available for a Valentine’s day date.
I had plans to go to Chinatown for dinner on Saturday night, but it ended up not happening. Hopefully I’ll be able to head down there soon though, cause the food is always so good.
On the workout front, the plan is for restorative yoga on Thursday night and then ashtanga on Saturday. I might try fit in another yoga class on Wednesday, we’ll see how it goes.
What do you have planned this week for workouts?
