This is certainly how I’ve been feeling lately.

Bridal Veil Falls and the Othello Tunnels in BC.
Lots of walking and awesome sights the past two days!

More pictures from our sight seeing. The hike for the falls was pretty tiring since it’s such a steep incline, but it was only about 7 minutes long, so it can’t really count as a workout haha. So pretty out here.

Reblogging from my main account. Currently out in BC spending some time with my boyfriend and his family!
Eating hasn’t been terrible and we’ve been doing SO MUCH walking :)

Home made General Taos Chicken. At least it’s healthier than fast food variety.

Their nap time, my breakfast time.
1 egg scrambled, 1 piece peameal bacon, a slice of toast and half a grapefruit, with my second cup of tea.

Anyone who’s ever followed me knows, I’m not a big fan of any type of eating style which restricts unnecessarily or makes my life in any way more difficult, but I’ve been considering going gluten free. I’ve had chronic migraines for nearly a decade now (which is saying something when you’re only 21), I get random skin rashes which seem to appear without provocation, and I’ve noticed that sometimes when I accidentally skip grains for a day or two (this actually is a problem and does happen when I’m busy and on the go) sometimes I actually feel better…

So, my gluten free friends (I know there’s more than a few of you) what do you think? Is it worth the hassle? What do you recommend and are there any ‘sneaky’ foods I should stay away from?

Why Canada€™s Food Guide needs a dose of up-to-date reality

An awesome article on why Canada’s Food Guide just isn’t practical anymore. A simple example? It assumes that a ‘serving’ of grains, like a piece of bread is only 65 calories, yet nearly every supermarket brand comes close to doubling that caloric count. As someone who as a teenager tried to use this resource to get healthy and lose weight, I’m now a lot less surprised that it didn’t work out for me.

I can’t wait until my boyfriend goes back to work and I can start eating breakfasts like these on the regular, I think this is the first day in months that my eggs haven’t been 1/3 bacon grease.

Half a grapefruit, 12 grain toast, and 2 eggs scrambled. A nice boost of protein, sugar and some complex carbs to lock it all in.

Some of the healthy stuff I’ve been eating recently, and my hair cut transformation.

I’ve been eating fairly well, I just haven’t had time to post!

Starting the #100happydays challenge. Check out the website (www.100happydays.com); little cheesy, but a great idea!
So what makes me happy? Giant cups of tea (and two chances to win haha).
