Long Time No Post

Hello all :) Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's been a super busy week. I went to see my new nutritionist on Tuesday, and she pretty much said the same thing, I shouldn't be on a vegetarian diet until I put on some weight! yeesh. So now they have me on Boost Plus

I'm not too fond of it but if it will help, hen I am willing to give it a go.
I am back to working out, doing P90x and swimming :) As long as I am getting extra calories in, it should be alright for me to get some workouts in.

I did my lecture and Q&A on Thursday at my old High School :) It as nerve racking and amazing :) I had such a great time.

I had the ultimate workout the other day...we have a mountain here in Vancouver called Grouse Mountain and there is a hike called the Grouse Grind..it is brutal.

This is what it looks like Image and video hosting by TinyPic..it's rickety wooden stairs all the way up. here is some info on it Length: 2.9 kilometers (1.8 miles)
Elevation Gain: 853 meters (2,800 feet)
- Base: 274 meters above sea level (900 feet)
- Summit: 1,127 meters (3,700 feet)
- Total Stairs: 2,830
Statistics: Annually, over 100,000 people hike the Grind™.
Average Time: On average it takes up to an hour and a half to complete the hike.
For novice hikers, up to two hours is recommended.

Though it's only 1.8 miles, it's a straight up, vertical 1.8 miles..and 2,830 stairs! Took me 1 hour and 44 minutes. I was exhausted at the top. Luckily there is a gondola you can take back down :) I plan on doing it many more times in the summer :)

Yesterday I made a HUGE green monster and froze it overnight, and had Green Monster Ice Cream! It was soooooo good! I will definitely be making this again in the next few days :) Right now I am baking a sweet potato for dinner and I cannot wait because I am starving!

I went shopping after work Thursday and bought a new dress, which I wore out to dinner with friends last night, I'll post a pic at the end of the post :) and I went to Sephora and bought some much un needed makeup. I've been super obsessed with Benefit Cosmetics lately, Image and video hosting by TinyPic, I think it's due t the cute packaging ;)

I'm off now to catch up on Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and eat some dinner..I will post again shortly with some great reviews!!!

That cosmetic package...oh my! And that dress! Gorgeous, where did you found it??

When I went to Vancouver, I went to the same mountain!! Except my mom and aunt were begging for my sister and I to stop (we only walked 3 set of stairs...) and to go to the camping spot, lol.
