Local Love

Good Evening Bloggies, long time no chat!  What a busy week for this household.  Thankfully, it’s wrapping up quite nicely and I’m looking forward to the weekend.

I’ve got some exciting news – Life, Health & Fitness is now being streamed in the “Life” section of Haligonia.ca


It was a big decision to make because being published on a local site kind of takes always from my anonymity.  However,  the whole point of my blog is to share my experiences with others, so why not locals as well?  Thanks again to the Haligonia.ca, I really appreciate this opportunity!

This evening the Halibloggers were supposed to go for our first group run. You know in preparation of the Santa Shuffle 5K that is a mere 2 weeks away.  Yup, sometimes the schedules just don’t work out the away we want them to. 

In anticipation of the run, I had a bite before I left work. For some reason I’ve been craving egg salad lately, so……

Bodywise WW Bagel with organic baby spinach, spread with the egg mixture – 1 egg, 1 tbsp of the best light mayo ever, diced chives and various seasonings. YUM and the perfect amount of carbs and protein to fuel my workout.

We agreed to met up at Starbucks beforehand and as usual I was a tad early. Not to worry, I managed to snag a comfy chair and had the crackberry and a short dark roast to pass the time. 🙂

In the end it was just me, Jaime and Tash who hit the pavement.  Ang had planned to go but got held up at work. Lex and Farm Girl had previous commitments.   We started off with a brisk walk down Spring Garden, then ran intervals for the next 45 mins or so, throughout the South End.  It was a beautiful crisp evening, hard to believe it’s almost December.  I haven’t done a lot of group running and have to say that I really enjoyed it.  It’s nice to be out working up a decent sweat while spending time with good friends.  Thanks for tonight girlies 🙂

On the WW’s front I’m doing okay, this week as been really busy which has resulted in a lack of “me” time. Read: lack of work out time.  I’ve stayed within my points, used all of my WAP and most of my APs so we’ll see what the scale says on Saturday.  I have a feeling that I won’t have much of a loss but I’m okay with that because the last 2 weeks I’ve had great results. I am finally back to where I want to be in terms of  focus/motivation AND I’m back to running on a regular basis.  Really don’t have much to complain about.

I will be checking in with everyone shortly, sorry for the lack of comments this week.
