I'm Getting It Back!!

Hey loveys!

Happy Friday!! Guess what - RIGHT NOW is the furthest away from Monday that you can possibly be without having to work. WHAT!? Yep. Embrace it my love... embrace it. It's the weekend - FINALLY!

I'm a bit tired. Let me tell you why. Remember how I was complaining about the weather here in Toronto this week? Well today's weather was AMAZING, so obviously I had to get out and hit the pavement while I could. I decided while working that I was going to do a 5-7km run today to help get my weekend off to a good start! So that's exactly what I did. I charged up my Nike+ GPS Watch, put some new music on my iPod, laced my shoes and got outside. I haven't used my GPS watch in a while and I think it needs an update because it took forever to track down a satellite to track my km's, but whatevs.

So there I am.. run run run... feeling like I look all hot and like this...

.... when I look down at my GPS watch and notice that the km reading is the same as it was at my walk break, 5 minutes earlier. EFF! I looked like this......

Yes, correct. I went from running along the beach to running in the dessert. Just kidding. But really... I think a lot of drivers probably wondered what was wrong when I had a minor freak out about my watch stopping. I was so pissed. At least my watch was still going so I could kind of guess my km's based on my pace and the time elapsed. Needless to say I managed to bust out a 7.36km run in 44:37! Whoop whoop!! I'm totally getting it back. I think I also got a touch of colour on my arms and legs which is perrrrrfect because I'm going out tonight and during the summer, one can never look too glowing ;)

Speaking of glowing.... I think the amount of sweat I produced after I stopped running is a bit ridic. Check it.

I didn't pit a filter on this picture because I wanted.. no NEEDED.. you all to see the crazy lines of sweat running down my chest. It sounds hot, but when you look at that photo it's quite the opposite lol! I was sitting at my desk after my run, trying to catch my breathe and check out who emailed me while I was out running and I actually went to cross my legs when I noticed that they wouldn't cross because of how slippery and wet they were from sweat. Seriously!? The tops of my legs were sweating!? Must have been a good run. I did sprint the last 400ish km's... I think my heart had stopped during that time.

Do you have any fun workouts planned for this weekend? I actually am planning on working out BOTH days this weekend because I have no major plans. Double score. Weight training on Saturday and a run along the water on Sunday. Tonight I'm going to a birthday party of a lovely little lady that works for C, so that should be fun! I'm going to wear a long black maxi dress. I can't really decide which type of make-up to wear... a smokey eye and accented cheek bones, or less on the eyes (liquid liner and serious mascara) and a bold red lip. Thoughts? I'd love some feedback on that... like in the next couple hours please lol. 

Tomorrow C and I are heading to my FAVOURITE mall ever. Yorkdale. Ahhhh.... oh how I long to just walk around the really rich people. Lol. I'm going bathing suit shopping because one of my best friends, Rochelle, is having her birthday party in a couple weekends (which my BESTEST friend Lauren is coming home from Nova Scotia for and I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!) and as part of the "weekend madness" she's having a pool party at her house in Oakville. You bet I'm going to buy a new bathing suit for such an occasion! I also need a new dress for the night before because we're going out downtown Toronto, but I'll talk more about that when the time is actually here :). And of course, my Sunday will be spent studying all about arthritis! I actually got a second night of studying in this week which has been rare, but it was much needed. I've been distracted lately, but I think as of today things will be smooth going forward. At least a girl can hope! :)

On Monday of this week, I have a couple fun things happening that I will just touch on briefly.

1. I get to see my most favourite doctor ever, my Endo that I'm in love with!! I usually only see him for 30 seconds during my appointment (which comes out to be about 1.5 minutes per year of quality endo/Sarah time, but boy to I cherish those seconds. Lol! Do you guys remember him???

I wonder if he'd care if I asked him for an updated photo... I look awkward in that photo. I guess the whole experience of asking him for a photo "for my blog" was a bit awkward in general, but I could have made it look a little less awkward. Hmm... I think I will! Haha. Will update you with new photo on Monday - that's officially on my list lol!

2. C and I are having date night at the movies! I don't think it's much of a secret that I'm a sucker for a vintage film... and Cineplex has (and has been having for a while and I had no idea) classic film nights!! So on Monday we're going to see a classic Hitchcock film, staring who else but the beautiful and classic Grace Kelly, To Catch A Thief. I'm so excited!! I actually didn't think C was going to want to go with me so I literally bought 1 ticket for myself because I wanted to go so bad. I've never been to the movies alone, but turns out C did want to come with me (I wonder what he wants.... is this a "suck up" move???), so he'll suffice as my date :). I'm clearly very excited to watch some serious vintage love on a large, large screen.

Q: Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? Date night with your lover perhaps? Date night solo? No judgement.
Q: What about workouts? What do you have planned? You BETTER get a good sweat on this weekend!! :)


  1. Enjoy your movie date night!

    The weather has been amazing the past couple of days! I've been soaking it all up :)

  2. That woman sprinting in the bikini has such a nice tush!
    And well done on getting your mojo back! x

  3. Way to go! I know what you mean about being aggravated with missed distance on the garmin! Ugh.

  4. husband and I marked the track for run club, we had a great time, even though it was pouring down with rain. yes I still ran, and yes I got soaking wet, but we had fun.
    I had to have a bit of a giggle with your pictures, cause yep I and I think we all can totally relate.

  5. Your main problem basic wristwatches, can be that they're commonly much more ungainly. Some people so want to possess an excellent gps watches although do not wish to be carrying in which major thing all around on their wrist though many people operate.
