Alive and Well !

Hello!! Sorry I've been away so long, but I convinced my boyfriend to take me to the lovely USA for 2 days! We went over to Seattle and it was AMAZING! I love it there! I was able to bring home so many things from Whole Foods that we don't have in Canada. I'll list the goodies later.

I lost my camera there AND my new Ipod! Ugh. They were both fairly new, so now I have to save $$ to get new ones. For now I'll have to use my camera phone :( My cold is much better and I went for an early morning swim at the pool! It felt awesome! The weather here is depressing though..windy and wet :(

I downloaded some yoga last night from yoga wow.I only did the beginners and it was brutal! Kudos to you ladies who can do the advanced in full! This is tough. I was sweating and shaking only 10 minutes in! But I'm going to continue to do this in the evening, I know I can make it through a whole session eventually! :)

Lately I have been on a major oatmeal kick, I've been eating it for breakfast and lunch! I'd eat it for dinner to if I could, but I need a little variation :) I've been eating a ton of roasted Butternut Squash for dinner, lots of kale chips and a ton of roasted brussel sprouts. Yum.

So here are some of the goods that I picked up in the US..none of which I can find here in Canada
*Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal
*Kashi Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon Oat cereal
*Tons of Fage
*Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea, Candy Cane Lane and Sugar Plum Spice..I can't wait to try these!
*PB&Co The Bees Knees and Mighty Maple Peanut Butters

I went to Starbucks this morning and The Holiday Cups are out!!

Hey, I'm new to your blog, and I noticed that your holiday mugs are different than the ones in CO. That's crazy! (it doesn't take much to amuse me I guess!)

Hey darlin :] I'm new on here but your blog looks fab! I'm sorry to hear about your camera&ipod. Mine was stolen at my 8th grade graduation so I can totally relate =/ You will get new and improved products though and if it makes you feel any better -- in today's market, all electronics are made pretty crappy anyways so they break sooner and you have to buy new ones. Hey look at that! you saved yourself some frustration by losing them :]
Keep up the good work! I look forward to reading more about your new healthy lifestyle and hopefully, I can learn a thing or two from you :] Have a lovely Monday!

<3 Becca
