Hello all :)
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 ..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, , 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!!!
New dress :)
And us in the pool yesterday :) hahaha ..no idea why my hair looks so dark in this pic!
Have a great evening!!
