Happy Friday my Healthy Friends!
Ahhh what a beautiful day here in Vancouver! I woke up to torrential down pours and massive gusts of wind, to be surprised 3 hours later with blue, sunny skies! Vancouver does have some random weather and it always seems to keep us on our toes! On Fridays I treat myself as I made it through a week and it gives me something to look forward too – today I stopped at starbucks for a little red cup action, and on my lunch break I picked up some Organic Dark Chocolate covered Cherries…….ahhhhh the perfect day. Friday’s are the only days that I get treats and I don’t feel guilt about it….i seem to have programmed myself to know “its Friday treat day, bring them on!”
Do you treat yourself on Friday’s?
Today I was be busy with work, meetings till late, groceries, and blogging – got to keep my momentum going! I am about to sit down with a cup of tea, watch The Ugly Truth and eat the box of these bad girls……. Who doesn’t love these?!
Last night we had left over Vegan Indian Dal – I tossed it with spinach and peppers; it sure hit the spot after a long day!
After dinner last night we trekked down to the gym as it was our cardio night for P90X and I decided (actually my body decided) I was way too sore for Plyometrics, so I rode the bike instead for 15 minutes and walked the treadmill at a fast pace/ steep (8) incline for 15 minutes. It felt good to get some cardio back in, but I can still feel a little out of “cardio shape” after the month off from excerise for the detox! But I will get back into it quickly! And I can’t allow myself to feel guilty for not being in the Cardio Shape I think I should be in because really my body went through a lot during the month detox and I need to learn to listen to my body and acknowledge it might need rest on some days.
Now what to do for the weekend?? I can see that the local mountains have some fresh snow, so maybe we will head up there one day and let Hudson run around. He loves the snow and it is so pretty to see “icing” covered trees! I would really love to decorate for Christmas, but I am not sure it is still too early??
So as I was writing this post, Hudson came trotting into the office smelling something similar to my breakfast…..I looked at him and his whole mouth was green! He broke into a baggie I had filled with Vanilla Chai Vega and ate the whole bag of powder! He has his vits for the day
This is the best pic I could get as he was trying to lick his lips to get the rest of the Vega off! Look carefully you will see green…..
When do you usually start decorating the crib for Christmas??? Leave me a comment and let me know when you decorate. I would love to hear other people’s views on this!
I am going on an Exciting Adventure tomorrow morning early (like before sun early….) I will keep you posted!!
