The flu got me!

February 28, 2014

It is -42 with the wind-chill here today, and I am on day TWO of being struck down by the flu. It started as back/neck pain with a headache and made a full 360 to sore throat, fever and aches. Fun times for me. I think my fever is going away now, but I haven’t had anything solid in 40+ hours. My dinner is take-out chicken hot and spicy soup. Sure I could have the classic chicken noodle soup, but when you can’t taste, breath or feel like you’ve got knives in your throat, this just makes sense. I finally got around to getting the Tone It Up Nutritional Plan, […]

Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. – Scarves on a Hanger

January 23, 2014

For awhile I have followed a lot of blogs that had a lot of inspiration for things for my “future house”. What’s great now is that I have a house to do all those things I have wanted.  Including ORGANIZATION. I saw this pin and thought it was perfect for myself! I have a billion scarves, and have always just used hooks on the back of my closet door to organize them. When we got the new house, I didn’t have hooks on my doors yet, and needed a solution for my massive pile of scarves! This look fairly simple and pretty idiot proof. I felt I was ready! via […]

Back to the Basics

January 22, 2014

When I first started blogging it was to journal my life, my fitness goals, fun recipes and just what is happening in my small world. It turned quickly into something so much more for me, and somewhere at that point I lost focus of why I started to blog. My whole focus switched to ONLY food and sometimes fitness posts. If I couldn’t get a all natural, perfect shots of food…..I wouldn’t blog. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba(Canada). It is dark by 5pm most of of the winter(which can be 5-6mths of the year). I work till 4pm, get home just before 5 and there goes that natural light. I […]

November 27, 2013

I love protein bars. It’s a well known fact around here that you will always find some sort of protein bar in my purse. I learned awhile ago that it is one of the best and easiest solutions for those times you can’t get home to make yourself a healthy meal. It has become even more important for me to have one for the husband as he is unable to have most packaged foods(not really a bad thing). This being said, a lot of protein bars out there are not actually good for you! They will have a lot of protein, but also fructose and a bunch of other things […]

Spiced Chai

November 25, 2013

I don’t know about any of you, but when it starts getting cold, my latte consumption increases a lot and my bank account feels the pain. I don’t have a frother or anything fancy when it comes to making a latte at home, so when Silk showed me this recipe, well let’s just say that my bank account was rejoicing. This spiced chai drink contains everything in it that I love about the changing seasons…minus of course the snow…it doesn’t include that 🙂 It is super easy and your tummy will love it. So go get a comfy sweater and fuzzy socks…we’re about to enjoy this drink in the comfort […]
