Spring Flings or Forever Loves?

It’s officially SPRING! The sun has been shining the last few days in Squamish, and it’s inspired me to put together a list of my current favourites.  I’ve got new shoes, a new jacket, a new necklace, and some other great new things that I’m loving this spring.

Whole 30 – Halfway There

Here we are, day 15 is in the bag, and I’m officially halfway through my Whole 30.  I’m sure you’re wondering how I’m doing, especially since I had a crazy busy weekend of race directing the 5 Peaks Alice Lake race, and co-hosting my elementary school bestie’s bridal shower.  And we all know what kind of food you find at showers….

So, how’d I do? First, let’s take a moment to just check out this view.  This is at the top of the Sea to Sky Gondola.  We took a quick ride up to the top on Saturday post race and were so impressed.  Definitely put it on the must-do list.

Whole 30 – Week 1

It’s funny how the brain can play tricks on us, and we can forget how good we feel when we do something.  It’s like stretching, and foam rolling.  We know it’s good for us, but it takes time and effort, and it just plain hurts a lot of the time, so I don’t blame us for not doing it.

Same goes with our food habits.  To be healthy and to make the right choices takes time and energy.  If you’re eating on the go, or grabbing something last minute, it’s not likely going to be a) healthy or b) well balanced c) satisfying.  And when I say satisfying, I’m talking about big picture satisfying, not just tastes good satisfying.  I’m talking about that feeling you get after organizing your closet, or food prepping for the week.  That kind of “ahhhh” breathe out satisfaction.

Anyways, I’m satisfied right now.  In a great way.  And it just so happens to be the end of Day 8 of my Whole 30…

Oh and I’m not running still, but I did get out and on some trails briefly this weekend!
