On the 12th of each month, a bunch of bloggers from around the world take 12 pictures of their day and blog them. Here are my pictures for January 12th, 2012!
6:58 am – bathroom. As you can see, I’m doing the 12 of 12 pictures on my BlackBerry this month. Here’s one of those “I AM USING MY SMARTPHONE IN THE BATHROOM MIRROR TO SHOW YOU I HAVE A SMARTPHONE!” pictures.
7:57 am – gym at work. This is my friend Jess! We work together and take semi-blurry morning pictures in the gym apparently! We played soccer this morning [by which I mean we WATCHED THE KIDS play soccer this morning].
8:20 am – gym at work. I spent far too much time deliberating what CAHPERD stood for [I couldn’t remember the R and the D], so I eventually made a mad sprint over to the banner to read it. Canadian Association for Health and Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. I think these banners are like, mandatory or something. Also note the ball thing that looks like a smiley face.
8:56 am – bus stop. Nothing like being outside waiting for the bus before even technically being off work! [We’re scheduled till 9, but the kiddos are gone at 8:45].
12:09 pm – cafe. BRAP! (Can someone enlighten me on the lingo?) The cafe has these nifty clear signs so as not to obstruct windows and fit in with the design and such. These caused me to abandon Sam in the cafe, run up the stairs to grab my phone which was sitting by Tara, and then run back down to the cafe. And, I got back before my London Fog was even ready!
12:26 pm – athletic centre nap area. London fog in hand, time to get a little reading in before class. Fit & Well seems like way too fluffy of a name for a book for a course called Scientific Principles of Fitness and Conditioning.
3:47 pm – mom’s office. I took the liberty of putting my mom’s gone for the day sign up in her office
4:28 pm – superstore. Look at the pretty balloons in the produce section! :]
4:35 pm – superstore. Frozen pizza for dinner.
4:41 pm – superstore. I’ve been on this epic mission for Special K Protein Plus. I think it is an American thing, as I cannot find it. It has 10 grams of protein, and protein is kind of important . . . being a vegetarian, a little bit more focus on protein becomes that much more important. Unfortunately, Protein Plus still has an edge on this stuff . . . it has 2 grams of sugar while Satisfaction has 13. Why they’re sugaring up a perfectly good cereal is a mystery to me. It’s also pretty high in sodium . . . I didn’t realize the sugar content till later, so yes, we bought it. (It’s okay, but that’s probably thanks to the 13 grams of sugar.)
5:03 pm – kitchen. My beautiful friend Sara Brown in TO sent me some info on Visalus shakes and some samples — gonna try one tomorrow I think! And as I’ve told Sara, while I believe that nutrition should come primarily from food, I know that sometimes that’s tough–especially with that protein factor as mentioned above.
8:53 pm – kitchen. Here’s my Fitbit! (Review to come in a few days as requested by Mike!) While my steps have risen by a few since taking this picture, I am definitely realizing how much harder it is to get the 10,000 steps in without working out — even if I did take sixteen flights of stairs today! I actually LOVE this thing. [To compare, yesterday I was at 12,084 . . . so basically double what I’ve done today]. Today was a rest day, fitness gains come in letting the body heal! Back at ‘er tomorrow! Also, how cute is my belt?
