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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
No words are really necessary. Watch, laugh, enjoy. Happy Saturday! Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig – nuff said. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G2jMY3j3mM] Props to these boys.. seriously.

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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
