Happy Summer! Happy Workout!

Happy first day of SUMMER!

In honour of the longest day of the year I was inspired to do a long (ish) workout. I hopped on the bike and banged out 18km in 40 minutes, not bad for stop and go city riding. Then I came home and hit the condo gym to shred it with free weights, 2 sets of 15 reps, 15 minutes. Rounding out the evening I hit the pool for a quick 800 metres in 20 minutes.

After a super long day at work this kind of workout was just what I needed. Changing activities let me clear my head and I feel so refreshed! Well, mostly refreshed… I injured my ankle at baseball a week and a half ago and I’m now the proud owner of a hairline fracture and bone bruise on my left ankle, which is a wee bit grumpy right now.

Moving along, it was 9pm by the time I hit the kitchen for one of my usual summer dinners. Salad sans lettuce, topped with spicy shrimp! Yummmmmo!


How fabulous is it that it wasn’t pitch black at 9pm?!! I LOVE SUMMER!!


I also love these beautiful, local, cukes and toms.


Those lil things in the middle are the spicy shrimpies, coated with lotsss ‘o spices. Who needs dressing when you can just mix this goodness together?


I think I hear some cherries calling my name… there are 8+ lbs in my fridge right now thanks to Whole Foods Cherry sale on Friday!

What’s your favourite fruit? I don’t think I can pick just one but cherries, strawberries, watermelon, nectarine and tangelo’s definitely top my list!

    I have SO many favorite fruits, I don’t think I can choose either! Probably nectarines, cherries, grapefruit or pineapple! :D

    Sounds like you had a great workout! Sorry to hear about your injury – hope you heal soon.

    Your dinner looked delicious. I’m much more a veggie person than a fruit person, so if I had to choose my favourite fruit I may go with tomatoes. Technically a fruit! :)

  4. Your blog is so cute girl! I love your layout.

    That dinner looks fantastic. You had me at veggies but shrimpies too? Say no more, I’m making this soon ^~

    My favorite fruit is grapes, specifically red glob. Yes, I’m one of those weird ones who doesn’t mind the pits! I find that they’re so much more satisfying to crunch into than the smaller ones.

    I’m so sorry that you hurt yourself :( injuries are no good.
