Tasty business, I tell ya!
A little something on a more “serious” note here. I don’t say much about this on the blog, but I am a long time, and by that I mean 25yrs, IBS sufferer. I was actually diagnosed at age 8 with what was then called a “spastic colon”. Sounds nice, eh? Over the years I’ve learned which foods to either eat sparingly or avoid all together. About a month ago I read a post on Leah’s blog about how she had tried taking probiotics and that they helped her immensely. I decided to give them a shot to help with some lingering symptoms and I am amazed at the speed with which I felt better. I’ve just been using Shopper’s Drug Mart’s store brand and they’re doing a great job.
I’m not saying that this is the ticket for everyone, but I’m sold on them! To learn more about them, check out the link to Leah’s post above!
They’re basking in the sunshine!
I had a fantabulous run today. I haven’t felt that strong on a run in a while now. I just seemed to find my comfortable groove today.

I’ve thought about not putting my gym stats on the blog anymore, but I do use them as reference for myself sometimes so I decided to leave them here. Pre blogging I use to keep a notebook to track these things if you can believe it! I’m such a type A personality…
I had a hankering to do some (easy) baking last night and found a quick, simple recipe in my Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 cookbook for some “squares”.
They were just OK. I think they needed to spend a bit more time in the oven. I’d make them again, but I’m also in no rush to.
Before I ate I whipped up a Chia Coconut Banana Pudding recipe that I found online. You can get the recipe right here. It was super simple and only took a few minutes to do. Next I’m going to try the chocolate one but I have to buy more chia seeds first! Look how thick it became!
Ds wouldn’t go near it, DD loved it and kudos to my hubby for trying it, but he did not like it. Me? I loved it! I have no idea what a serving size truly is, but I made 3 from the batch.
As soon as the kitchen was cleaned up we went to spend some time with our neighbour (the one that just lost her hubby) and then we went for a family bike ride. It’s such a beautiful night and who knows when the next one will be so I wanted to take advantage of it. I’d say we were gone about an hour. I’ve been blogging out on the deck, but will be heading in soon to watch SYTYCD at 9pm.
Tomorrow’s my Friday so YAY for that! I’ll catch you all on the flip side!
Bye for now!!
