Back at it: Food, Gym, Life...

And so my holidays are officially over.


I can't believe how quickly three weeks have come and gone.

Mind you...

Every moment I had off was savoured to the very FUllest.

Not always literally ;)

I mean...

I got a chance to loaf around a ton...

Enjoy my time with my family...

In addition to (yet not limited to)...

Sprucing things up around the house!

As this is my first week back into the swing of life again...

My routine has swung its way into place quite nicely.

It all started with Starbucks!

My lifting and cardio program are back into FUll motion (literally)...

I took some rest days while on holidays so...
My 'scheduled' workouts happened when they did :)
No FUss. No muss.


When it comes to my eats...

They are back to normal too! (My last holiday dinner party was this past Saturday!)

Zucchini Egg White Bites.
Oven-broiled Rainbow Trout over a bed of salad.
Simple broth with chicken, bok choy and mushroom.
Salmon Roll Ups.

I have to tell you though...

It feels mighty good to get back into my regular programming but...

I won't deny...

It also felt great to relax and go with the flow during the holiday season. (I found balance during my time off, and the rest (on all fronts) was needed!)


As I continue on with my week and the season ahead...

I intend on continuing to nourish my body and mind right! (Both inside and out!)

Have a great day everyone!

Linking up to Jenn's WIAW today :)

Questions FU You...

  6. It's good to have some downtime. I do love my routine, however! School starts tomorrow and so does my weekday 'back in the swing.' And btw, your batshirt!!

    I am back at it too - workouts and Food pretty much stayed the same anyway, but I'm having a hard time accepting the hassle at work :-) I was SO in the flow and it does not feel right! I guess I Need a few more days to settle in...
