Happy Birthday, Sandy!

HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY SANDY! Cute as a button.   Today my best friend turns 23! Gosh, I can’t believe we’re that old already (all downhill from here Sand). I still feel like we’re in high school sometimes, wearing jeans skirts and uggs (cringe), taking random road trips to places we have never been before, and . . .

CHO Reunited

Today was a great day. I went for a run, went to school, came home, had lunch…and then there was a knock on my door. It was the mailman. I saw him and I saw the box he was holding. My face lit-up like a 3 year old receiving a new toy. Wanna know what . . .

Yeah, We Did That

This morning I was up at 5, out the door by 615, and running with Amy around 645! I know, I know, who wakes up that early on a Sunday? And more specifically, who wakes up that early on a Sunday to run 15km? Amy and I do! Sure it’s a little crazy, but it was the . . .

Recent Things

Let’s start off with some of my favourite fruity items. This was breakfast the other day. In this bowl we have some yogurt, almond milk, ground chia and flax seeds, berries, 1/2 a banana, and a dollop of almond butter. Yum. Just yum.  Oh and then we have a smoothie.. in an almost empty Sunbutter . . .

Endorphins Work On Me

That’s the truth. Endorphins definitely work on me. After a great run, I cannot help but smile, I am super cheery, and I seriously feel like a million bucks! Anywho, here’s all about my weekend. I’ll keep it picture filled with not so many words… I’m a little sleepy. It happens. First off, look at . . .

What Up, Tuesday.

This morning started off bright and early. Amy and I hit the pavement at 7am for 7km intervals! Okay, so an exclamation mark is absolutely unnecessary since I am not the biggest fan of intervals. However, they are necessary so we do them anyways. Warmed up for 15min, then we did 1min interval with 2min breaks, we . . .

Breakfast and Running – Two Favourites

Welp. Let me just say.. Max is SUPER sore from yesterday’s run. Unable to walk kinda sore! hahahahahhaha its SO FUNNY! Anywho, moving on. Lately, I have been trying to switch up what I have been having for breakfast. I usually resort to oatmeal, french toast, and overnight oats – so basically “sweet” things. I want to . . .

A Day of Baking

Today was what I would like to call the perfect day. It started off with a beauty run along the harbour with Amy (of course) and my big brother Max! Now, this is a big deal because Max hasn’t gone for a run with me in…. wait for it… SEVEN YEARS. Oh yes. Anyways, he was a . . .

A Recipe and Random Things

As promised I will first and foremost be sharing my Savoury Buckwheat and Cheese Muffin recipe. Seriously, so good. I got the recipe from this wonderful cookbook…which I now call my cooking bible. Alrighty, so the recipe in this book is the “basic muffin” recipe, but I adapted it to fit the muffins I was making. And . . .
