Sorry guys that I’ve been so MIA

it’s been a mixture of post exam partying, then getting sick. I haven’t been working out/eating right in a while, but that stops TOMORROW. 

The Workout:

-Warm up with Zuzana’s Burpees are Forever Workout 
-30 minute strength training workout from the Nike Training Club app. I’ve heard great things about this so I can’t wait to try it out! 
-5 km run (since it’s going to finally stop raining!)

The Meals:

breakfast/post workout - chocolate strawberry protein oatmeal

snack: carrots and hummus

lunch: banana peanut butter spinach smoothie, plus healthy cottage cheese cake

snack: salad (cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onions, feta cheese, yum!) and carrot muffin with cream cheese 

dinner: carrot “cake” wrap + pineapples/yogurt for dessert

Getting back into the gaaaaaaaame lalala

Fact

Smoothies in a bowl > smoothies in a cup.
Seriously guys, I can’t explain it. But it just is. TRY IT :D

side note: it helps if they’re super thick, I thicken mine with xanthan gum :)

I’m in heaven (All Canadians, read this asap)

For those of you living in Canada, you know how frustrating it can be when things you want are only sold in the states (grrrrrrr damn you) and shipping costs an arm and a leg.

I really wanna try out PB2 (because I consume copious amounts of peanut butter.. way too much for my own good) but it’s only sold in the states and shipping was like 92.61$. 92.61$!!!!!!!! what. the. fuck. LOL 

Allow me to introduce to you… The Low Carb Grocery. It carries a bunch of healthy groceries/natural foods/organic/low carb/YOU NAME IT. Real obscure stuff that I have never been able find at Loblaws or Metro or any other grocery store :(

Seriously, check it out. I can’t wait to visit it tomorrow: it’s only 20 minutes from my house. I foresee some serious damage in my bank account..
