Partying Through the Years

13 Jan

Well I do not seem to have a picture from EVERY year, but I mustered up 5 years of at least one photo. I have changed a lot over the years, weight wise anyway. Last night was the holiday party, and I can say without a doubt that this year I was the fittest I have been in years! And here is the proof!




6 weeks after Parker was born

NO clue where the other pictures went! Fast forward to yesterday!

Random Junk from the week!

12 Jan

It has actually been a surprisingly relaxing week for me! Especially today!
This is my new favorite breakfast! Gluten free waffles with natural peanut butter and raspberry jam topped off with thin slices of banana!! I am seriously addicted…

20130111-180906.jpgMy runs this week have been alright, yesterday the temp dipped back down and I had run back home during lunch to grab my running jacket! This was so I could run straight after work! However, in my rush of things I did not realize all I had was my capris in my bag…and my long running pants were still at home! Because I was so mad, I ended up just going anyway and risking frostbite (dumb…I know…) Made it 3km! People were walking their dogs in the valley, and bundled up to the nines! Staring at me like I was nuts!



Some kid brought this gem of a CD in….I was like how the heck do you have this?! Its like 4 years before your time!!! One my coworkers and I were jamming out to Jumpin Jumpin!


Although highly inappropriate, do you remember Sisqo and the thong song? The rumor mill on the radio says that he is now living right here in Edmonton…and is a meat cutter at a local Save On Foods!

20130111-181008.jpgFrom todays run, here is a picture of this peeping tom rock!! Poking his head out from the snow, trying to sneak a peak! What a weirdo!!


It is finally the weekend! Do you have any plans???

Bootcamp Woes!

11 Jan

Tina and I headed to boot camp! The same class I vomited in last time….


I told her to look afraid in this photo, and the instructor overhead me and said “there is nothing to be afraid of here!”…thanks lady!


So the theme of the class was to grab random pieces of paper with different types of exercises! All of them very different.


We got through 5 random sheets within an hour. It was pretty tough! Tina was proud because she actually was sweating!! However the gym was really, really hot! I think we were sweating before we even did the warm up!


After our class we really wanted to try flipping over these giant tires! We see contestants do this all the time on the Biggest Loser!


Upon inspection of the tire, we discovered it was 260 pounds!! Relatively easy if you get a good grip, but after so many retakes of the same photo…I realized it would be really hard to do it over and over again!


After boot camp I went for a very short and cold run in  the freezing rain!!!! It took forever to warm up after all of that!! Looks like were going back into the deep freeze here according to the weather network…at least for a few days anyway=( It’s too bad because I have been enjoying the nicer weather!!
