Okay, I’m aware that TGIS (thank god it’s saturday) is not a thing. But maybe I’ll make it a thing? Here’s my rundown of random from the week. Enjoy, even if it’s a day late. In my defence I did a bunch of work yesterday, went for a swim (2750m! Go me/it helps when you have company!), caught up with Angela, beat Alex at UNO, and made bison steaks for dinner (had help for the veggies and rice–:)!). All in a day’s work.



This morning I am all fuelled up with an oat pancake (made with oats, egg whites, and cinnamon) that I topped with some maple syrup diluted with soy milk and an apple. Yummy! And now it’s time to get on that productive train so next week isn’t a killer. Be warned: I may have been all over the diary posts this week but next week I might be focusing on finishing all my stuff for school. Balance! 🙂


I keep thinking I’m busy…but then things get even busier! This weekend is looking like it’s going to be a lot of fun but work wise, next week is no lighter than this past one. Goal: keep smiling 🙂 take things one at a time and have fun along the way!

5 cheesy pictures (tradition says these need to happen)

PS – I tossed a few new pictures onto my inspiration reel this week!

4 posts you should check out

  1. Kate’s post about the eating disorders/body focus in the world of elite sports. Kate does such a good job of discussing the whole thing, I’m just going to leave it to her 😉 and say that it’s such an important thing for us to talk about!
  2. 8 ways to really turn a man off” from a new blog I think I found off of a Facebook share. Still, funny. I am definitely guilty of some (as I’m sure we all are) but I think I’m getting better ;)! Check it out for a giggle.
  3. Joe Friel’s post about recovery with his final words of wisdom: “Regardless of one’s level of experience or fitness, the harder the hard workouts, the easier one’s recovery days should be.” Amen to that!
  4. Peanut Butter Runner’s past post about going after what you want. Right up my alley this week and it’s just the fact that I stumbled on it that makes it a bit more meaningful!

3 books I’ve been digging my nose in

  1. Paleoista – I mentioned Nell Stephenson earlier this week. I like her. I don’t think Paleo is the answer, but I think it’s got some good ideas.
  2. Healthy Tipping Point – I’m just getting into this now, but I am so excited! I love blogger books!
  3. Food Politics – Marion Nestle’s take on how the food industry affects nutritional advice is hitting close to home now that I’m in this foods program–so I’m re-reading it!

2 Facebook statuses I re-shared (Go Kaleo with the double:)

1 smoothie I kind of mastered

    1. my mix Thursday night (post-bike ride): applesauce, spinach, soy milk, cinnamon, a dash of maple syrup, and cashew butter (enjoyed with a cashew butter spoonful and a handful of crunchy cereal on top)

And a bonus…

What’s new with you this week?

    And amen to what Go Kaleo said – restricting in any sense of the word is unhealthy!

  2. aww thank you for the shouter!! 🙂 and YAY for new reading material 😀 ok, that Go Kaleo blog – you posted something from her the other day and now I’m obsessed with her. she REALLY knows her stuff, and to think she found it all out through just wanting to set a good example for her kids…damn!

  3. I just like the valuable information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and take a look at again here regularly. I’m fairly certain I’ll be informed many new stuff proper here! Good luck for the following!
