Happy Fall

Happy First Day of Fall!

Happy Fall
First blog post of fall 2015


Love, love, love this time of year! Happy first day of fall everyone!

I just wanted to say hello and yes it has been a couple of months since I posted anything, but I have been really busy.  After we moved to the new house we spent six weeks in Chicago.  Then when we came back to Toronto we had to get the kids ready for going back to school.

So what have I been doing for the past two months?!  I ate everything I wanted in Chicago and didn’t work out.  You heard me right.  I ate a lot of food and didn’t work out.  And do you know what happened?  I lost five pounds!  Don’t ask me how that happened, I don’t have a clue. Below are just some of the foods I ate in Chicago.

Batter and Berries Food

I do want to get back to working out and eating better.  It has been a challenge to get back on track. I decided to start slowly and joined Fitness With PJ’s 21 Day Fitness Makeover Plan.   She will provide the participants with workouts, recipes and tips.

That’s it for now.  I hope to be better with the updates now that life has slowed down a bit.

How are you celebrating fall?!  Do you have some favorite fall rituals or recipes to share?!

I’m Finally Back!!!

These past few weeks have been crazy busy, getting the new house unpacked and now we’re getting ready for our trip to Chicago.  I wanted to just stop for a minute and give you an update.

I’ve been working out steadily, almost every day.  I’ve started another round of the Fitness Blender Abs Program and added the Fitness Blender Booty Program.  I really like that you can just add the programs directly to the calender on their website.  So you know exactly what workouts to do that day. We will be staying with my mom and I don’t think she has any heavy dumbbells. So, I’m thinking of getting the Fitness Blender Bodyweight Program to do while we’re there.

I think I’m ready for Chicago.  I tried a few things on that were a little tight a couple of months ago.  They fit a bit better.   I’m still struggling with my diet and I have a feeling it won’t get any better in Chicago, but I will try not to overeat.

I will make sure to update this blog while I’m in Chicago. I hope you all have a great summer!
