July 1 FUstivities! No Cookies, CuPcaKes or Burgers for you FU!

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!!

I hope you all enjoyed this special day with the variety of FUstivities in and around your neck of the woods!

As for SuperFit and I...

We both started off our morning with a blitz of exercise.

FUnishing up my last hour of cardio FU the week.

But FUrst...

We had breakFUst!

This is what I had...


Egg Whites, Chia Seeds and a FU Red Peppers.

Once we were both FUeled up...

SuperFit rode his bike:

Sporting his new Cyclery Kit!

While I went to the gym for some:

Cardio (as I cannot go biking until after the show);
Abs; and
Posing

When I got back...

I was feeling quite reFUreshed!

It would also be time to eat so...

I made us some lunch:

I tried to make a Flag for SuperFit

My Flag worked out much better...


I tried to be FUstive :)

As soon as we cleaned off our plates and washed up...

We headed downtown FU some FUn!

I made sure to pack my afternoon snack (as I knew we probably wouldn't be home by the time I'd have to eat again!)

Tuna, Red Peppers and Green Beans.

And I should mention...

I struggled finding any bottoms that fit!

**Everything is far too large at this point in the game! And, buying new clothes as I'm continuing to lean out prior to the show probably isn't the best idea ...I must say, belts are really coming in handy! lol**

Moving on...

A short car ride later:

We eventually found a parking spot...

And made our way towards the FUstivities :)

I bought SuperFit his FUvorite Popsicle:
Rockets.

He loves these!

There was lots for us to see and do...

SuperFit is up close and personal with the FUghter Jet.
Can u see him?!
Notice the people waiting in line for look-see lol

As I dragged SuperFit away from the FUghter Jet (not really)...

We enjoyed some great entertainment!



We then headed to Market Area...

We had to cross the Alexandria Bridge to get there...
Good thing I'm not aFUraid of heights!

It was closed off for pedestrians.

We stopped to take a FU shots while crossing the bridge..

Stud.

If we had not taken those FU FUtos...

We would have seen Prince William and Kate Middleton!


Empty streets.

We missed them by 10 seconds. Literally.

Moving on to more interesting things...


I recently read a review about the Most PerFUct CuPcAkEs in town...

So I made a point to check out a FU on the list (not eat, check out. I had to!)

My mouth was watering. 





After telling a staff members at GLITZ CuPcAkEs I'd be back in two weeks to try one...

I left. 

A FU steps later...

I was reunited with my treat from last year's Canada Day!

Piccolo Grande
http://www.piccologrande.ca/

I was so FU'in happy on this day!!!
I had picked both PB and Chocolate Gelato FUlavors.
Nom Nom Nom!

One quick reminiscing minute later...

We picked up G.

Still injured :(

 We then bumped into my Mom, Kiki and Timbits!



Timbits, G and SuperFit.

Of course my Mom had some homemade treats in her purse....

FU all to share!

They were Molasses Cookies...

Who doesn't like a Cookie!
Who can't have a Cookie? Me. lol

SuperFit didn't have to say:

"No Cookie FU you FU"

As I knew it was deFUnitely out of the question! 

Plus...

I didn't (and don't) want to risk my results with temptation!

That said...

I found something to keep my mind off the sweet, chewy and delicious cookies....

It really doesn't take much lol

But that didn't last long!

As I mentioned beFUre...

I wanted to visit another CuPcaKeRy! 

This one was voted #1 in the city...(in the Review I read)

http://www.thecupcakelounge.net/

Their menu looked FU'in incredible...



And their CuPcaKeS looked heavenly...








I could see the Gang was drooling FU one....

So I told everyone not to worry about me and...

Enjoy the Winning Bakery for Best overall CuPcAkEs!

SuperFit and G split the Vanilla and Chocolate

CuPcaKes will bring a smile to anyone's face :)

SuperFit got it all over his FUngers like a child would his face with a melting ice cream cone...

FUnger lickin' good!

And G inhaled his half right befUre my eyes! (He knows his CupCaKeS too, maybe even better than I do!)

**He always talks about Isobel's CuPcaKeS in the Beechwood area. They received an honorable mention on the list of the most perFUct CuPcAkE!)

My sister Kiki got the Red Velvet...


It looked so moist!!!

And my Mom and Timbits shared the Almond Raspberry...

How sweet it is xo


Of course...

There would be none left.

Mmmmmmmm....CuPcAkE.


What did I have?

My Tuna and Veggies...

I was happy everyone got to enjoy a sweet treat even
if I couldn't share in the excitement.
Watching everyone smile was well worth it :)

SuperFit and I indulging in our Protein FUeled Snacks.
There's not enough Protein in CuPcaKes ;)

As we parted ways with both G and The Gang...

We explored a FU other FUstivities taking place...

One of them being a crazy Basketball Game of some sort.

We also acted like tourists and asked a passerby to take our FUto in front of the Parliament Buildings...




On our way back to the car...

We noticed long lineups for Street Meat...

SuperFit has never had Street Meat.
I can't say the same.

This gave me a craving to cook up some burgers on the BBQ!

Although...

I wouldn't be able to have any.

That said...

I knew exactly what I was going to make, based on a previous dinner I had made myself earlier in the week.

That's not bread. 

To start...

I made SuperFit a salad...


And prepared the essential condiments to top...


Once the Burgers were ready to serve from the firin' hot BBQ...

SuperFit mounted his FUvorite toppings to his Hammies!

Getting caught up in Cycling News while
 listening to some great tunes on the deck :)

As for me...

I made my own Protein Burgers!

Protein Pancakes come in handy :)

Basil, Mushrooms, Spinach and Orange Peppers.

I made them bite sized.
They would have been great with melted Allegro Cheese...
But my 'diet' didn't allow for it.

They were delish nonetheless!

All in all...

This was a perFUct day FUeled with simple pleasures (well with a little sweetness for some)!

We enjoyed sunshine, great company and yummy FU'd.

I couldn't have asked for anything better.

After winding down over dinner...

We cleaned up and vegged for the remainder of the evening.

We were FU'in pooped from all the walking and heat that...

Going back downtown for the FUreworks seemed far too exhausting!

Did you see them? We heard them.

I should note that as of today (July 2)...

I am 14 days away from my FUrst Competition!!!

The Show will be taking place at the Museum of Civilization on July 16!
(Right behind me)

Reality is really starting to set it in and...

I am both excited and a touch nervous!!!!

But I think that's normal....right?!

Stay Tuned for More on *CaNdY FiT*
