A Thoughtful Package

Hello lovelies! I’m not feeling my best tonight so I’m gonna keep this short and sweet. I think I spent WAY too much time working out in the sun yesterday and although I did drink water, I don’t think it was nearly enough. I also realized today that I had very little protein yesterday. Talk about asking a lot from my body, eh? I swear I never learn! I couldn’t stomach the thought of something hot and heavy in my belly for breakfast so I ate a nice refreshing bowl of Wildroots cereal: IMG_1778
The first day back to work after a long weekend is usually a fast one and today was no exception. Love it. Before going to the gym I snacked on a peanut butter cookie Lara Bar:IMG_1779
I did my standard treadmill walk today….4mph, 7% incline. Going today was a real show of determination because I did not feel like it whatsoever. ;)

Time: 45 minutes
Avg Hr: 151
Max Hr: 169
Calories Torched: 406
Distance: 3 miles

For lunch I brought the rest of the mushroom ragu from last night’s dinner and stuffed it into a WW pita: IMG_1780
YUM! I also had a packet of almonds. IMG_1781
Later in the afternoon came some fruit in the form of an orange and blueberries:IMG_1782

I came home to find a FANTASTIC, unexpected package in the mail. Erica sent me some treats that she knows I have trouble getting here in Canada. I love that girl!! Check it out! IMG_1785 IMG_1784

What a great stash, eh? <3

My hubby is on vacation this week and has been busy working on our bathroom. The first coat of paint is on and he’s just waiting for it to dry so he can apply a second coat. I’m really happy with the colour so far. Pictures to come! Seeing as he’s been a busy bee, we ordered Chinese for dinner. I kept it light so as not to fill my tummy too much with some sticky rice, chicken & veg and shrimp lo mein: IMG_1783

Then I enjoyed a mitt full of powerberries! :) I’m bailing on Pilates tonight. I really don’t like to do that but I think my body really just needs a rest. My MIL gave me some more hostas for the garden I worked so hard on yesterday so I think I’ll plant those once the area is in the shade. Then it’ll be time for The Biggest Loser finale!! What a re you doing tonight??

Bye for now!!


  1. Sorry you are not feeling well. Can't believe your still did your treadmill workout! But I'm glad you are taking it easy tonight and giving your body some rest...

  2. 2 of my favorites: Luna bars + Chinese! YUM :)


  3. oh the cool mint would be perfect right now! id love a bite <3

    awe take it easy, i know the feeling, and i get dehydrated so quickly since im a related to a prune (i swear).. ive had my fair share of heat strokes and dehyration episodes:( never fun, and completely yuckie.


  4. What a wonderful surpise! Erica rocks! Sorry you're not feeling well girlie! Feel better soon!

  5. yayyyyy! I'm so glad you got it. Its always nice to have a special treat after a not so sweet day. Your fruit always looks so fresh! My MIL just brought us a bunch of fruit from costco, can't wait to dive in. Way to get in a slammin workout (even when you weren't feeling 100%). Get some rest tonight! I just finished teaching Attack and now we're off to dinner with Josh's parents

  6. Sorry you were not feeling so hot, hope you are doing better now. Boy does that Luna bar look good, I have not seen that flavor.

  7. Dark chocolate covered powerberries! Neat! What are they exactly? I'm not sure I've ever heard of them.
    Anyway, hope you feel better!

  8. Loving that mail stash... especially the chocolate covered goodies. Hope you're feeling better in the morning!

  9. I hope you feel better soon! And so nice of Erica to send such a great package! i have yet to try those TJ's powerberries yet! next time hopefully!

  10. Getting foodie mail is the best, especially when it's treats you can't get at home. Although I swear, those Cool Mint Clif bars are sold like, everywhere around here. You sure you can't get them in ON?

  11. Sometimes I get sick from being out in the sun too, and usually when the weather is nice, I get so distracted that I forget to keep up on my liquid levels. But, I usually keep a lot of fruit on hand, which is mostly water as well!

  12. Sorry you're a bit under the weather Krista! A day or two of air conditioning should help!

    LUCKY you with the loot from Erica! My mom and I just planned a shopping trip to the US for later this summer, when she figures out where we're going, I have to research grocery stores!

  13. That was so sweet of Erica! That is definitely a great stash! I've never heard of Powerberries, but they sound delicious!

  14. Hope you feel better love!!!!!

    Erica is so sweet! What a awesome package!!!!

    I hope you have a great night! xoxo

  15. That is such a great package! I am so jealous! I love getting packages in the mail. I think packages full of healthy food would send me over the top ;)


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
