A Quiet, Cozy Weekend

Hi guys!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  This weekend was very low key for us.  Saturday Josh and I did our farmer’s market run!

We picked up some awesome stuff as usual.

  • 8 red peppers
  • cauliflower (which I already ate.  in one sitting.  just now.)
  • a pineapple
  • bananas
  • 3 half pints of blackberries (3 for $2!)
  • 2 half pints of blueberries ($1.25 each!)
  • sweet potatoes
  • green beans
  • lemons
  • limes
  • ginger
  • green onions
  • freshly made raw honey! (so good)
  • 1 lb nitrate-free, low-sodium turkey breast slices

About $35 spent there this week. Pretty good! The rest of the day was pretty low key, Josh studied, I ran my 12km LSD.

I almost pushed it to Sunday but was so glad I didn’t because the weather today was not pretty!  Saturday night was even less eventful, we just stayed home and watched a movie…how boring is my life. Sorry! hah.

Today I hibernated because the weather was grey and cold and wet and not welcome. Luckily Sundays are my rest days, so hibernation was necessary and very welcome! Lemon also did lots of hibernating this weekend, in different places and positions:

in my lap.

on the couch.

On the back of the chair, like some sort of cat?

Oh and even whilst standing!


ALSO, in this hibernation, I actually managed to successfully PAINT MY NAILS! Usually I can’t sit still and smear 5 nails and then just remove it all.  I did these two pretty colours, which I am loving for Spring! …Spring…please come back?

Sweetheart & Mermaid's Tears


The turquoise is on my toes and the pink is on my hands because after the first 5 mins at the gym tomorrow I will be missing a few chunks off my fingernails…so this colour makes it less noticeable, hah.

Now in more exciting news…I registered for my Personal Training Specialist (PTS) certification course and exam!  It is something I have always thought about doing and since I am not woking at the moment I figure this is a great opportunity to get certified. My course is the week after Easter so that is pretty exciting!! The idea of doing something I love for money is pretty cool too I guess…hah.

A bit of a snooze post but hopefully you guys got a bit of amusement for a couple minutes, ya?

Now for some more cozy couch time + Mad Men, wee!

UPDATE!  I just realized that I forgot to mention today was also LiveFit Day 84!!!  It was a rest day so I really feel like yesterday was my last day.  But anyway, woohoo!  Will post results soon!

      hahah! that’s just our produce. we get more at the grocery store (aka. meat, almond milk, egg whites, etc). We just cut our bill from $1100/month to $500! Woo!

  4. Woooohoo for finishing livefit and that awesome 12 km! Your dog is adorable

  5. I just found a farmers market near us a few weeks ago – AMAZING! I’m obsessed! AND I’m the same way about painting my nails & I am a brat & will only wear OPI (haven’t found anything else that works as well). HAHA! 😉

    • Danielle says:

      hah Whitney I am the same! OPI or nothing! At the rate I chip my nails, I need the best I can get!

  6. YAY!!! I am so excited for you!!! And I think I bought the same colours over the weekend! haha 🙂
