Good morning! Happy first day of December! The best thing about today? I get to start my advent calender I’m not the only one who still lives for those in December, right?
But today I’m just popping in with my weekly groceries, meal plan and workout recap. I’m also joining up with Arman‘s Spill It Sundays, just in case I don’t talk about myself enough on here

Sunday: impromptu day off. I planned on going to a TRX class but we were snowed in, so I turned it into a laze-around-on-the-couch day. I haven’t had a complete rest day like that in ages, so it was pretty awesome.

Friday: Step class
Saturday: Extreme Circuit
And now, answering Arman’s questions for the week!
1. What is your cultural background?
On my mom’s side, there’s British, Scottish, Irish and French, and on my dad’s, British and German. I probably identify more with my Scottish background than anything else.
2. What was your most memorable birthday and why?
Hmmm…that’s tough one. 19th birthday was memorable for obvious reasons (yay Canadian legal drinking age!) and I’m pretty sure that my 22nd was memorable, if the pictures I have from that night are any indication….
3. What is the #1 thing you want to accomplish in your lifetime?
More than anything else, I want to be happy. I have no idea where my life is going…what sort of work I’ll end up doing, where I’ll end up living, when I’ll have kids or how many…but no matter what direction my life goes, I want to be able to look back and say that I lived a thoroughly happy and fulfilling life.
4. What is the stupidist thing you’ve ever done?
Think that I wasn’t good enough. That if I could reach some sort of satisfaction with my physical appearance, everything else would fall into place – I just had to be thin. Clearly, that couldn’t have been further from the truth – I wish that I could go back to my teenage years and tell myself that I was fine just the way I was.
5. Who was your childhood hero?
I might have been a big Power Rangers fan growing up…
And since we’re supposed to include a selfie:
A repeat of the “I love my butt” shot. Just cause
Have a good Sunday!
