Life Updates, Fun Stuff and #RECIPEFRIDAY!

Hasn't this week just flown by?!

I mean...

Even though mine started off with a migraine (migraine free for 3 days so far, although I got up with a pounding/throbbing headache this a.m. that quickly dissipated)...

Every day since has simply...

Gone with the wind! (Lame I know lol)

The cold remains around here...
Even if the Spring has apparently sprung.

That being said...

Let me take a break from updating you on our vacation away...

Part I...
Part II and...
Part III.


Let me tell you a little bit about what's been going presently :)


First off...

I got these super FUreakin' sweet sunglasses from Sunski in the mail the other day! (All opinions shared about Sunski are mine and mine alone. I was not compensated for my words, I was simply sent a free pair to enjoy, which I totally am!)

I was really taken aback by the personalized note!


They are so much FUn...

How could one resist a selfie?! lol

And, without a doubt...

I feel pretty special that I'm one of the first in my neck of the woods to own a pair!

Did I mention that...

SuperFit was quite taken by them too!

Totally rocking MY Sunski's! hehe

**I must say, the people at Sunski are so, so friendly! When reaching out to me, then reading more about their story, how they give backtheir frames (among other things I perused on their website), I couldn't help but fall for them! And to be honest, I worried that the glasses wouldn't fit my face (since I have a hard time with sunglasses), but they fit just perfect! #WIN**


My hair...

In case you didn't notice...

I got my hair did!

I told my hairdresser he could have FUn...

So that he did!

I love the cut and colour!
It's subtle.
I call it the peek-a-boo :)

Loafing around...

I've been learning and playing around with my bread making techniques...

As well as...

With my flour to water ratios!

Working on opening my crumb a little more.
That said...
This sourdough loaf is my favourite yet :)

If anything...

I'm expanding my knowledge as I go along...


I'm loving every little bit of time I've had to devote myself to loafing around! (I've been keeping notes since I started back in December. From the benefits of sourdough to keeping track of my baking, flours used, fermenting phases etc...)

Whole wheat sourdough bread.

** Feel free to check out Laura's bread post where she talks bread! So many of the things she shared I've been storing in my brain (or on paper) so I really value the time she took in putting that post together!**

Enough bread talk for today lol



I've been feeling pretty powerFUl...

Bright ;)


I just don't mean in strength...

I mean...

In both body AND mind! (The two are n'sync and it feels good!)

And lastly...

Both SuperFit and I have signed up for the Canada Army Run! (Taking place in September, just a few days before my bday!)

If you remember...

I did the Army Run back in 2012, which was my very first half marathon!

Nookie and Me nearing the finish line!

What's really exciting about this race is the fact that...

This will be SuperFit's first half marathon so...

I'm really looking forward to running this race together! (And, a few friends have now signed up for it too! Seriously, it's gonna be a big party! lol)

That said...

I guess I should start running again!

I'll be ready as soon as it warms up and the snow has nearly melted!




I'm looking to you for some recipe ideas!

As I've been getting back into the groove since our holidays...

I've been sticking to our regular eats! (And not really creating anything 'new' per say.)

Some of the pics below date back to when I first made them :)

Do you see anything?
Me neither ;)
Greek Yogurt with Berries and Flax Seeds.
Low carb protein pancakes.
Egg whites topped with salad, dijon mustard and hot sauce.
Salad topped with a homemade lemon dressing and sumac.
Salad topped with Salmon and Dijon Mustard Grain.


If you have a recipe(s) you've been making and loving...

I can't wait to see what you've cooked up!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
