Discovering Leftovers

Hey Lovey,

Oh. My. God.

It's Friday night... I haven't blogged here since Tuesday. I think that's classified as an #epicfail for Sarah (me). I'm sorry. I really don't have much of an excuse for not blogging. I just feel like I'm getting lazy. I'm getting lazy in a lot of aspects of life. I think my motivation level seems to be dropping for some reason. I think it's time to read a motivational book and get myself prepped back up and into my glorious positive spirits.. Yes? Lol.

C started doing TRX twice a week after work! I'm super excited for him. I love TRX. However, on those days that he does TRX we don't get home until in between 7 and 8pm. Which basically means I walk in the door, make dinner, eat dinner, go to bed. Seriously. No time for anything else. Lol. This week we discovered something amazing.

Leftovers.

I figure that if we cook more than enough food on Monday's and Wednesday's, then on Tuesday's and Thursday's when we get home so late, we can literally just heat up our food and call it a nice. GENIUS!!!!! Why didn't I think of this before now!?!? It was totally by accident that we thought of doing this, because we had leftover steaks in the fridge last night we just heated them up and it was like a whole new world of not cooking! Haha. I know.. sounds silly.. but it was super exciting for me!

Ok - remember when I said I was spending a month focusing on food instead of fitness to see how it was going? Well... it went well! And it's now officially been 1 month. I will admit that my fitness was not good at all during that 1 month period, which I think is a direct correlation to not having to tell the world about not working out due to focusing on nutrition. That's the second #epicfail of this post lol. Damn.. this is not a good way to start this post off. Anyways, the good news is yesterday I did a really good workout that consisted of:

Lat Pulldown
Seated Row
Bicep Curls
Tricep Pressdowns
Lateral Raises
Leg Extensions
Leg Curls
Planks
Push-ups

It was a pretty good total-body workout and I'm feeling it today. Mostly in my biceps. Because of that I took today off AND because I don't want to be sore for the COLOUR ME RAD 5KM RACE ON SUNDAY!!!

Oh man. Can you tell I'm SO EXCITED?! So yesterday I went downtown to pick up mine, Elyse's, Michelle's, Katy's & Emily's race kits. I don't think I've EVER seen a race kit pick up as busy as it was at the Colour Me Rad race. Seriously. The line was snaked through the room AND went out the door. It was nutso!! However, while waiting in line I finally met the beautiful Robyn Baldwin from www.robynbaldwin.com because she was just slightly in front of me getting her race kit as well! It was nice to meet her in person finally, and it will be exciting to run with her this weekend as well! Here's what came in our race kits :)


WHOOOO. So excited. We got some extra colour packs for when we get colour bombed at the end of the race :). I believe we've all decided to "prace" our way through the race and make sure we get tons of photos, so Sunday's post will be FULL of fun photos from the race! My friend Elyse is coming up tomorrow to spend the night (because she's from London) and I'm excited to have her! I think this weekend is going to be so much fun!

Anyways, this post was short (I'm sorry!) and I have to go get ready for tonight because (obviously) we're going out for a couple drinks since it's Friiiiiidaaaaaay!!!

Q: What was the highlight of your week? I feel like I'm missing out on everyone's life...
Q: Do you do the "leftover" thing often?

PS - because this is a fitness/health/nutrition blog I've been feeling like my fashion/beauty/cosmetic posts don't really belong here. I've started up a new blog over at Peace, Love & Vanity and would LOVE if you guys would head on over, check it out and let me know what you think!! Like I said, it's BRAND new... so show it some love.. please!! :)

  1. You aren't the only one that seems to be missing some motivation! I am doing the fake it 'til you make it thing. I am hoping that I'll find the real thing along the way! ;)
    Have fun at the 5k!
    And you discovered leftovers? LOL...
    Now you can work on being creative with them!

  2. I am the Queen of leftovers! I always make extras of everything and eat it for lunch the next day "as is" or with a different twist. Saves so much time!
