Feeling in Balance

Yesterday morning I woke up with a general sense of balance in my life. It was a great feeling. This week has been incredibly busy, at work, at home, at the gym, but I don't feel that usual drag of Friday at 5:30 can't come fast enough.

Do you feel like you have balance in your life right now?

So how about a week recap?

Monday night and I went for dinner at Jamesons (Brentwood Location) and split 3 awesome pulled pork sliders and a chicken avocado ciabatta sandwich and side ceasar, just the right amount of food, and I got a beer... all for 24 bucks!

Tuesday was a long day at work, filled with seminars, meetings and class. The seminar was put on by My Grad Skills and dealt with preparing for the Candidacy exam. Expect a rundown of that over on my other blog some time this weekend. Oh and I went to sleep at 8:30, sooo cozy!

Wednesday was MMA bootcamp at 6:15AM, loving it! Then all day on the myograph struggling with a new bath. Afterwards @setulk and I ran buy the mall, and I went into lululemon and didn't buy a thing (self restraint FTW)!

Thursday again a long day at work, followed by a talk about 'Cafienating' health care in Canada (it came with free food!) and a trip to the gym with Kev. I set a new personal best and squatted 105lbs! Felt so strong and badass afterwards!

And that brings me to today, Kevin and I booked a March Break trip somewhere exciting, I'll talk about that in another post later.  My experiments are chugging along and I submitted my application to a conference in Toronto well on time!

So here's to a good week, and an even better weekend!

A pretty picture from my cousin's wedding in Oct. It's amazing what professional hair, makeup and photographers can do!

How did your week go? What's on the docket for this weekend?


  1. I LOVE both of these photos of you!! Beautiful. Where do you workout?

    1. Thanks! they are two of my favourite photos too! I am pretty cheap so I work out at the University of Calgary Gym (since I'm a grad student, so its free) or where ever I have a groupon. So MMA bootcamp is from a deal that was $20 for 20 classes, up in the NE. I also have a 1 month world health groupon to cash in soon!

  2. Sounds like a great week for you! Gorgeous photos!
