It was so fun to go back to school on Monday! Part of me was sad about summer coming to an end, but in other ways I was totally ready to jump back into routine! I packed a yummy lunch for my first day back Delightful kale salad with hemp hearts and pumpkin seeds, an apple, almonds and a blueberry Taste of Nature bar (scored at the Veggie Food Fair) Ashley picked me up with delightful tea in hand and off we went! I scored my super cute blue lunch bag at Winners a couple of weeks ago for only $14.99! It is insulated and came with a the great salad container inside fitted with an ice pack and two smaller one cup containers. It’s so functional and super cute too. I’m really happy I picked it up.
I’m taking Nutrition Fundamentals for the next 7 weeks and I’m really enjoying it so far! The first class was basically an overview and yesterday we spent the day talking about carbohydrates. On Monday we’ll cover protein and then we’ll spend 4 classes on fats! It’s great to have the last 8 month’s courses under my belt as it really puts all of this stuff into perspective. It’s great to be back and learning!!
As I mentioned last week, I’m going to be doing the Run for the Cure on October 3rd with FIT CHICKS! The gals have some charity classes coming up this weekend with all proceeds going to the run. Check them out:
10:00am – Ireland Park, Burlington
9:30am – Hermitage Park, Ajax

Last but not least… I’ve been mega busy over the last few weeks in preparation for this:
My dear friend Ashley and I are putting on a cabaret on September 30th called “There’s Just Something About Ashley”. Tickets are $10 in advance ($12 at the door) and you can get them from me. We’re going to be performing some amazing music from some brilliant contemporary composers including Jason Robert Brown, Kerrigan & Lowdermilk, Jonathan Reid Gealt among others. Show starts at 8pm and we would love to have you there for some Ashleyx2 trouble!!
Did you go back to school? How did you find getting back into routine? Where is September going?!?!
