Currently obsessing over this shoe.
I saw it on Queen St. Walked in to basically try it on so I can say "Ugh, it's so uncomfortable, I would never wear it." Instead, they were completely comfortable. DAMNIT!! I want them. I'm currently at work scouring the internet for a cheaper one. I ain't payin' designer prices, GAHD!
Update: I bought them, ok? Don't judge!


1:00 p.m: Salad with lotsa stuff in it.

7:00 p.m: protein drink

9:30 p.m: Sushi and Yogurty's. Yup.

mishkebob is officially on vacation. I miss her already. Yea, I said it! Two weeks, ugh!! It will be lonely at work.

10:00 a.m: A few Hersheys kisses.

12:30 p.m: Mom gave me stuffed eggplant. I gave a bit to co-workers but had most of it.
I've been off working out for a few days. Woman things. I need to get back into it. I hate this part. Run, tonight. Must.

4:00 p.m: Watermelon with feta cheese. Yummy sounds were made.

Exercise (7:00 p.m): 1 hr work out. 30 mins weights, then a 3.3km run.

8:30 p.m: Sweet potato, mushroom and onion fried in vegan butter. 1/2 an avocado. Omelet with eggs from a carton.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012


Feel asleep on the couch. It was madness. I woke up at 5 a.m, took a shower, went back to bed at 6, woke up at 7 so damn comfortable that it was a bitch to force myself up. Whatevs.

9:30 a.m: A breakfast sandwich from the place downstairs of work. It's a bit of bread, fried egg, lettuce, some tomato spread. Good.

12:00 p.m: Was out for a work thing. At a pub. I picked the healthiest thing on the menu and it was horrible. Ugh. I ate most of it. It was a mushroom and spinach salad with an egg on it. Some dressing. Also had a Molson 67. About 80% of it. I tried.

1:30 p.m: Came back to work. There was pizza. I had two tiny skinny slices of a veggie one. Felt better.

7:00 p.m: At a Vietnamese place with friends. I had a stir fry with rice noodles and a coconut shake.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012


One more week til I go to potentially sign up for this. Will I chicken out? We'll see.


8:00 a.m: Handful of almonds for breakfast. Apparently I don't eat now.

1:00 p.m: Veggie Thai curry with brown rice and a small wonton soup

3:30 p.m: Watermelon slices with feta cheese. You don't know how good this is til you've had it.

8:00 p.m: Cousins house. Lots of grilled veggies, hummus, salad. Dessert was had.

Monday, August 27, 2012


Today was a weird day. Back at work.

10:30 a.m: Chocolate croissant. I was in a rush and it was all the place had under my building that was 'to-go'. Oh well.

12:30 p.m: Egg fritata and salad. Ice cream sandwich. Yup.

4:00 p.m: Some Goldfish crackers things

7:30 p.m: Delicious dinner. Sweet potato, mushroom and onion fried in coconut oil. 1/2 an avocado with lemon and salt. Omelet with goat cheese and vegan butter.
I was going to go to boot camp (it's the last week) but F it. I got my period. TMI? Yep. It's a blog. Get over it.

12:00 p.m: Handful of almonds

Exercise (1:00 p.m): 5 km jog. It was hot outside, again. I almost died. On the up side, I wore a tank top to run. Hah! I know that sounds strange to some, like that's some sort of achievement, but it is. For one, this is literally the first Summer I ever even started wearing sleeveless shirts in public. I still never felt comfortable even working out in one. Which sucks cause I'm a sweater (not the shirt, haha). I'm not some dainty little girl who sparkles in my make up while working out. I sweat and look like shit. But know what? It's cause I have to work for it. I don't work out cause I feel like I should, it's cause I have too. I'm ranting. Point is, working out in a tank top is a lot easier when it feels like 32 degrees outside. :)


3:00 p.m: Tabouli made of tomato, parsley, green onion, garlic, wheatberry, lemon juice, olive oil, salt. Zucchini strips fried in coconut oil.
8:00 p.m: Some more of the tabouli and an omelet with mushrooms and goat cheese. Had a protein drink shortly after. Just one of those chocolate juice box thingies.

Back to my last two days of boot camp this week, finally!! I'll likely sign up again but it'll depend on if I get into the boxing thingie or not. :)

Saturday, August 25, 2012


My vacations almost over. I'm sad about it instead of enjoying what's left cause I suck.

11:00 a.m: Pancakes made of 1 banana, 1 egg and almond butter. Aunt Jemima syrup that for some reason I have.

Exercise (3:30 p.m): Ran 3.7 km. It was incredibly hot and I was wearing black pants and T-shirt. I gave up. Still worth it, I was sweating like a maniac.

5:00 p.m: Something new. All in a pan with coconut oil --> Tomato, okra, garlic, mushroom, s&p. Pretty good.

7:30 p.m: Brownie, yellow pepper and hummus, some cheese

11:00 p.m: Greasy Chinese food. Hated every minute of it. No lie. It was way too late to be eating. I should've gone home. I purposely stayed up til like 1 so I wouldn't go right to bed. Uggggh.

Eating Vegetarian in Chicago

So here is what I ate while in Chicago for 3 days. All delicious. I would basically eat two big meals a day and these were it. By no means was any of it healthy. Looking at this I notice I barely ate any vegetables (which is odd for me) so it was not so pretty. I mean don't get me wrong, delicious, just not healthy.

I also had my acid reflux both nights. It was real shitty. I was up all night. 

Day One
Omelet with veggies and avocado, potato and toast. @ Yolk
Deep dish pizza. AMAZING. There was broccoli in there, somewhere. @ Giordanos
Ricotta cheesecake at the hotel bar.
Day Two
Mushroom, spinach and potato with eggs on top. Pancakes. @ Eggsperience
Cheese enchiladas, beans and rice. Had guacamole too. @ Su Casa
Day Three
Egg and tomato omelet in a croissant with potato. @ Corner Bakery Cafe
After this we went shopping a big then headed to the airport where I had a falafel sandwich that sucked, some ice cream, then I was back home. I think I made a protein shake at night.

Friday, August 24, 2012


12:00 p.m: Banana

3:00 p.m: Strawberry banana smoothie from Freshly Squeezed. Added whey protein.

5:00 p.m: Lentil purée thing my mon made with pita bread. Salad. Greek yogurt.

7:30 p.m: Dinner, again. Friends went to an Asian vegetarian place. Loved it! I could actually eat everything on the menu! I forgot what that feels like.
No meat! All tofu. Not the best option but it'll do.
9:30 p.m: Watermelon with feta cheese (try it, you don't know what you're missing!) and a brownie.

It was full of delicious food. That means one thing - none of it was good for me. I'll post pics later.

Sunday, August 19, 2012



No updating unless I get free wi-fi at the hotel.

Saturday, August 18, 2012


So I'm going to Chicago tomorrow. yup.
It will be a food challenge cause the 2 people I am going with won't be as crazy food conscious as I am. I'm going to try and make it a challenge not to let myself slide just cause I'm on vacation. I'm sure I'll indulge in a few things here and there but not as bad as I know I could if lost all control.

10:00 a.m: Few almonds

Exercise (11:00 a.m): Ran 5k

12:15 p.m: Salad (arugula, tomato, green onion, goat cheese, basil, almonds, lemon juice, olive oil), broccoli, hummus.

8:30 p.m: Apple with almond butter and cinnamon

12:00 p.m: Veggie burger (but a decent home made one, not some frozen shit) with no bread and a small salad.

3:30 p.m: Banana. The Simply bar. It's ok. Only 3g of sugar so I like that. I've been very good on the 'no sugar' thing but hey, i'm not perfect. For me it was mostly cutting out the trips to the reception at work (there's always chocolate there!) and dessert when I'm out for dinner. So far, haven't done any of that.

Exercise (6:15 p.m): 1 hr boot camp

So, boot camp was kinda awesome. Why? Back story first. A year or so ago a co-worker/friend did this thing called 'Agency Wars'. It's a boxing match between people in the ad industry. I loved every minute of it. I said I'd do it when the time came. The time has come. It's in December but the recruitment is September 5. I HAVE to get in. I need this. I want this. Have you noticed I've now worked out 7 days in a row? No stopping in sight either. Anyway, the point. Today in boot camp we boxed. There was this game of like 'first to reach so and so' and F, I was first!! It felt so amazing. I'm ALWAYS last in everything so the fact that I came first in boxing is a sign to me. A sign to keep going. I'm so ready for this. Man. I need to get weighed soon too. I know I've lost a few pounds.

P.S. so cheesy but you know this song? Yep. Beyonce. Let me tell you, boxing your ass off during this song is amazing. It should be my entrance song to the fight. :)

8:30 p.m: Chips. Cool ranch Doritos. Yup. Friends house.

Sunday, August 12, 2012


Exercise (11:30 a.m): 5k run.

Thanks to the mishkebob for the recipe. It was 2 eggs, 1 banana and some almond butter. Healthy pancakes do exist!! When I start to eat sugar again these are going to taste delicious with some maple syrup.
I've probably had way too many eggs today. Ugh.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012


12:30 p.m: Salad with grilled veggies. Delicious.

Exercise (6:15 p.m): 1 hr boot camp. It's back and sweaty as ever!

7:30 p.m: Got some food on the way home. Salad with a bunch of veggies on top. I think the dressing was laced with sugar and that makes me angry. Otherwise, it was a delicious salad. So it must be bad for me. In hindsight, i should've had no cheese too. Next time.
