Happy Monday

This weekend has been great and full of hanging out with friends, going to the movies and great food 🙂 but I am glad it is monday and I can settle down and focus on my skating and school work. yesterday I took a “rest day” from the gym and only did a one hour yoga class because I have worked out everyday for so many days and I felt like I got kicked in the ribs ( I get really sore from running sometime)

lately I have been trying to save money and trying to eat up more of the food I already have, so if my food post get a little boring I apologize.

breakfast before yoga class

for lunch I had pumpkin oats with carob chips and a banana hiding under the oats

snacked on a new treat 🙂

I normally use kelp noodles for when I make my raw phad thai, but like I said I need to use up stuff I have

such a good and filling meal!

well I’m off to do some more homework before practice 🙂 hope you all are having a great day

Do you take rest days from the gym? I know it is important but being an athlete I feel like I should be fine working out everyday.


I found you!

I finally found the last of the christmas teas that I have been looking for today! plus practice was great and I’m getting excited for the competition next month 🙂 I need to work even harder than I am now, off skates and on skates!

and they were even on sale!

breakfast/skating-fuel was this bar, it was not as great as I had hoped

I had to double-check to make sure it wasn’t real chicken!

lots of veggies make for an amazing lunch 🙂 but I was still hungry…

so I had a toasted earth grain bun with nutbutters and I also had a second apple 😉

I should be getting my bum to the gym, but I feel like I should play some video games first! I just need to get motivated 🙂

I think I might go to the movies tonight, maybe that will motivate me to go workout 😉 What motivates you?

Late xmas dinner post

I know it’s January 7th and I’m just getting to posting my christmas dinner pictures… but things/life has been strange, but they are better now and I will be back to updating on a more regular basis. So let’s get to it!

Vegan christmas feast for one in a box! well plus leftovers 🙂

The tofukey with veggies 🙂

the apple dumplings that came with the feast

I also drank some organic red wine while cooking

most amazing meal everrr

close up

I also made my famous vegan fat-free zucchini brownies

can’t have brownies without vanilla ice cream 😉

perfect desert to go with my perfect dinner!

and to make it even better I had leftovers of the dinner and desert for like a week!

hope you all have a great night, I think I might play some video games before bed 🙂

what’s everyone doing for the weekend? I am volunteering at Clothes for Kids and my first day is tomorrow, and I’m pretty excited 🙂


Where did I go?

okay so I am officially over my funk! with school starting and skating getting more intense there is no time to be in a bad mood. So the happy-go-lucky skater is back! hopefully you all had a great christmas and new years 🙂 I have to get to class now but I will do a real post when I return 🙂


Can the holidays be over soon please?

I know I know… the holidays are a wonderful time of year, blah blah blah… but it’s really only wonderful if you have famille or someone to spend it with. I use to love Christmas so much, and it’s not that I don’t love it now it just it doesn’t feel like christmas at all. But on the bright side I did just find out that they are having hot yoga @ 10am on christmas morning! sweet! so I do have something to look forward to 🙂

I am not sure what to make for christmas dinner… but I’m thinking something untraditional like Thai or indian

I normally only drink my coffee black, but this stuff is AMAZING!

can’t go wrong with Amy’s and Annie’s 🙂

this is not something I would recommend, it has a very fake taste, but hey it kept me full for my workout at the gym

I call this my mexi salad! I could eat this everyday

hello lover….

desert is a must in my book 🙂

okay that’s all for now, hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Have you ever spent christmas alone? if so what did you do?


Before and After

I officially love hot yoga! but it was a bad idea to go before skate practice because it drained all my energy for the rest of the day. I don’t have skating today so it has been pretty low-key, went to the gym this morning, went grocery shopping at like 4 different stores ( I love bargains, and hate to pay full price for anything) but it’s all good since I’m a dork and kinda like to grocery shop 🙂 Anywho I have hot yoga again tonight 🙂 in about an hour and then I have a hot date with season two of Grey’s Anatomy!

Some things in life are better before but for the most part they are better after…







Before & After

Like I said some things are better before

Well I’m off to hot yoga! what are you doing tonight?


One day at a time…

Thanks for the nice comments 🙂 they really did cheer me up. I am slowly getting back to my old self, but the holidays are just hard when you are on your own.

I got up early this morning to go to Hot Yoga! but the instructor did not show up, so everyone gets a free class so that pretty cool I guess. I am pretty excited to go tomorrow morning, hopefully I will still have enough energy to skate for 3 hours and go to the gym after 🙂

the pictures are from the last couple days and in a very random order

I was out of oatmeal so I had to settle for malt-o-meal with pb and bananas

Veggies and dave’s killer bread with hummus and cucumbers (such a good combo)

I love this flavor!

this was a much-needed breakfast after a crazy AM workout! veggie burger, scrambled tofu and Dave’s killer bread with hummus and cucumbers

apple with pb and pumpkin butter

very very good, and I still have 2 other flavors to try!

my foodie fail salad.. but so good

yum yum I normally do not buy these because of the price, but they were on sale so I got two boxes 🙂

have a great day!

P.S I found the famous Dave’s Killer Sin Dawgs at the store! I can’t wait to try it 🙂
