April in the Mountains
April Long weekend found Janice, Sean and I in Banff again - nearly an entire year since the last time, loving the fresh air and small town mountain feel. Running town for a few days before the rush of tutor clients for uni finals and high school diplomas was a great plan. We left Kiara behind - and later realized that the mountain dog friendly hotel would have accepted her! Just a fresh weekend of hiking, tourist shopping and enjoying each others scintillating conversations on life's (lack of) predictability.
Puppy was ecstatic to see me after my two day absence from her tiny 8 month life. I've never felt so appreciated! It's worth every pair of shoes she maliciously destroyed - my Pumas from Vegas and white strappy heels included!
Training Hard at Hardcore Gym!
Deciding to hire a personal trainer - one that knows what he's doing this time - was the best $1600 investment I've ever made. 28 pounds, 6 inches and counting! It's down to 5 last weeks. The high protein, low carb, low fat diet is an easy to love diet that tastes great with real food. I won't bore you with the details - but a little willpower, 3 days a week of strength training, a ton of cardio - and the perfect diet are making my summer GREAT!
Cheat meals: April 27th, June 4th and July 17th! Can't wait for July 17th's trip to Sabor da Vino.
Mother's day was our last weekend of Spring weather before the snow fell again (seriously???! Can't wait till I move out of Alberta!) so our May Long Weekend camping trip ended up being a rainy weekend at home with puppy. Instead of flowers, a rainy April brought baby showers!
Ah, well, that's Alberta I guess!
