I normally blog a lot on weekends but decided to take a little break from it this weekend. I didn’t have anything too exciting planned and the weather has been crappy, leaving me totally uninspired.
Since I don’t have any pics or stories to share, instead I’m gonna fill you in on a few of my latest obsessions. Most of them are food related (shocker!):
I really didn’t think peanut butter and banana on toast could get any more delicious. Then, one morning, I randomly decided to
sprinkle a bit of pour cinnamon on top. Great idea (since this photo was taken, I’ve managed to perfect the art of sprinkling).
2. Game of Thrones
I am not a bandwagon jumper (still haven’t read Twilight, thank you very much), nor am I a fan of fantasy in general, but I’m inexplicably obsessed with Game of Thrones. I watched the pilot last Saturday and decided to buy the book, which I’m thoroughly enjoying. The plan is to read the book and follow along with the TV show. Nerd alert!
3. Eating almond butter out of the jar
Okay, back to nut butter. I find that when I get to the bottom of the jar, the almond butter is all hard and difficult to spread. My solution – I just remove toast from the equation altogether and eat that shit right out of the jar. Way better than ice cream. On that note, I just realized I’m all out of almond butter. How did I let this happen?!?
4. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries
These were on sale at Whole Foods a few weeks ago so I picked up a bag – a-maz-ing! Honestly, these are almost as good as the bar version (you know, the deep-fried kind that go perfectly with a pitcher of beer) and only 130 calories a serving.
5. Ontario strawberries
Finally, strawberries are in season! I picked up a pint at my local grocery store yesterday and they are sooo much better than the ones I’ve been eating all winter.
6. Lady Gaga’s new album
I wasn’t crazy about this album when I first listened to it but it’s since grown on me. Big Time. My favourite songs are Marry the Night, Government Hooker, Hair, Sheibe, Bad Kids, Born This Way, Judas, Edge of Glory… okay that’s like over half the album. But even the songs I’m not obsessed with are pretty decent.
7. Logging my workouts on Fitocracy
Sometimes, it takes longer to log my workouts than it does to actually do them. But I can’t help myself. I’m vying for first place among Josh and all of his cousins; I’m currently in second. It’s killing me.
I feel like I should come up with three more to make this an even 10 but this is all I’ve got. And that’s the nice thing about blogging – if I was submitting this to the magazine, my editor would for sure make me feign interest in three other things just to round it out. Yay for self-publishing!

Week in Review:
Last week, I committed to eating a little healthier and stepping up my workouts. For the most part, I stuck to the plan, with a few little adjustments:
|Monday||RPM + NROL4W Stage 1 Workout A Body Flow|
|Tuesday||Body Attack NROL4W 1A + 20 minutes elliptical|
|Thursday||NROL4W Stage 1 Workout B|
I’m now finished Stage 1 of NROL4W so I’m taking a week off to do whatever I want at the gym. The plan for this week:
|Thursday||Body Flow or Rest|
|Saturday||Run or indoor cardio|
Okay, back to Game of Thrones.
