I was going to start this post of with a “Good Morning” or “Happy Wednesday” but I woke up with the worst headache of life, so there is nothing good or happy about this morning for me right now. So I will just say Hello instead. How’s everyone’s week going? Mine has been good and bad. Starting with the good, last night I went to try out the new Jillian Michaels Body Shred class at Goodlife Fitness. I was a little nervous to go since I still have a horrible cough and my lungs are having a tough time getting their breath these days. I went anyways, and I’m really glad that I did.
Well, James is officially in Tokyo for 8 weeks. He left on Saturday, so as you can imagine this weekend was really hard. I feel like I have permanent puffy eyes and my heart hurts. I know that the distance will get easier over time, but for now its a little overwhelming. I also, have the worst cold ever which doesn’t help me feel more emotionally stable. So, while he’s gone I have decided to stay in Vancouver for March and April alone and be an independent girl for a bit.
Well, hello! I took an unplanned and much needed break from blogging over the past week. Sorry about that, but life has been busy over here and I have been feeling a little uninspired to blog. Here is what I have been up to…
1. Last weekend, it snowed in Vancouver. A lot.
Well, its Friday! I have been glued to the Canada v. USA game all morning and we just won! I have been glued to it for the past 2 hours with sweaty palms. Note: I am not a big NHL hockey fan, but when the Olympics are on I’m obsessed with it.
This morning while I was taking something out of the freezer, my beloved Chocolate Mint Girl Guide cookies fell out of the freezer (where we store them for optimal deliciousness) and some landed on the floor and broke. I had to sweep up the broken pieces and throw them in the garbage, with a single tear rolling down my cheek. I hate wasting perfectly amazing cookies. I put the remaining cookies in an airtight tupperware so that this type of tragedy never occurs to me again.
not a good start to the day
Hey everyone! Happy Hump Day! I did something yesterday that I’m really excited about. Since James is away for a couple days, I have access to his car throughout the day which has been a real treat. Hello freedom!
The transit system in Vancouver is amazing, but sometimes you just need a car you know? I have kept my Goodlife Fitness membership it allows me to use any club in Canada. The problem is that its not as big of a chain out here in BC and the closest club to us is a 20 minute drive away (1 hour by train) which just hasn’t been doable for me with no car. Well, yesterday I decided I would drive there since I had the car, and I did a Body Pump class for the first time in 10 months. I love that class, and my muscles are feeling it this morning!
Well, hi! I woke up to a rainy morning here in Vancouver so I’m spending the early morning hours warm indoors with a tea and watching the Olympics. I will just give you advance warning that when the Olympics end in 5 days, I will be devastated. I wish this was a constant thing. So, yesterday I did something that I haven’t been doing a whole lot of lately, I went for a good run. My friend Melissa needed a bit of a hash tag push yesterday to finish her run, so I helped her out.

Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? We had a busy day of furniture shopping yesterday and we bought a bed! We sprung for a king size bed, and I’m pretty sure we are now officially adults. I have only slept on king-sized beds in hotels, and I can’t wait to spend 1/3 of my life for the next 20 years in it. That seems like a lot of sleeping, hey? Anyways, I spent 3 hours last night online looking for cute patterned throw pillows. Very big life decisions happening over here.
