September!

September 28, 2014

It’s been almost a month since my last post and what a month it’s been. I’ve been busier than I thought possible for weeks now and there’s no sign of it letting up anytime soon.

September highlights:

  • Peaches! Many, many peaches have been consumed. All year I look forward to peach season and this year was a particularly good one. Peach pie, grilled peaches, peaches in salad, peach salsa and straight up raw. It was a peach bonanza.
  • Wedding details finalized! The NOTL gazebo, the hotel and the officiant are all booked. It was easy, low stress and will be the casual celebration we pictured.
  • Injury free (mostly)! I’ve been steadily increasing my mileage with the Toronto Waterfront Half coming up in October and have had zero blowback from my body. In fact, I’ve been running for a few months now with little to no pain in the usual suspect muscles.
  • Serious sweat sessions! After going through a bit of a rut in the summer, I’ve been hitting the gym with renewed vigour this month. Constantly mixing it up between bodyweight HIIT sessions, light weights with sprint intervals and concentrated heavy weights was the key.
  • Extra rest days! Trying to get better at listening to my body and taking an additional rest day when needed rather than half ass the workout on day six. Finding this really helps up my intensity all the other days.
  • Stews and chili! It’s fall and that means comfort food and crockpots full of deliciousness when you get home from work. I’ll be posting some recipes soon of easy, yummy and healthy stews and chili for those colder days.
  • And last but not least…How I Met Your Mother! Season 9 is FINALLY on Netflix, which means binge watching sessions when I can squeeze in a couple of hours of free time. Soon I will know why everyone hated the series finale (yes I’ve successfully avoided all articles on the plot).

That’s it friends! Some other stuff happened – I took a header during a run and did some damage to my face (it’s healing nicely) and we’ve had some ups and downs with the landlord since moving into our new place – but for the most part September has been pretty awesome. Can’t believe we’re headed into the last quarter of the year. Where did the summer go?!
