Come see me there!

For the first time ever in my blogging "career", I feel like its time to take a little break.
My work is consuming my life and what little time I have to myself, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer after spending 16 hours a day at one.
Things in my both my personal and professional life are a little chaotic, and I really just need some "Amy-time" to get things sorted out.
If anything good has come out of this situation, its the fact that I'm able to handle stress without jumping into the cookie jar, or drowning my sorrows in pizza. Admittedly, I actually had to force myself to eat on Friday.
Rest assured, I will be back with a vengence in just a couple of weeks.
I need you all to do me a favor though ok? Promise me you'll come back and read me again?
Love to each and everyone of you.

- I’m really tired, so tonight’s post is going to be short, sweet and to the point.
- Had a good day at work.
- Ate healthy food.
- Went to Body Combat and worked HARD, my shoulders are going to hate me in the morning. It felt great to punch/kick the day’s frustrations away.
- Enjoyed a home cooked meal prepared by a colleague: pasta, ceasar salad and a little chunk of baguette.
- I’m still feeling a parched, despite drinking 3L of water today at work and a couple glasses with dinner. I think I’m going to have a water chugging contest with myself.
- I feel like pictures always make blog posts a little more interesting, so I’ll leave you with a picture of my girl Jersey. I miss her so much.

…I forgot to blog yesterday. Oops! Nothing too excited happened. I went to step class, and then my colleague and I had a mini BBQ for dinner: chicken breasts, veggies and salad. YUM!
Today wasn’t very interesting either. Worked my ass off at the office and at the gym. I ran for 45 mins, did upper body, back and core.
I got moved to a different hotel room today that doesn't have a kitchen, so dinner was quick and required no cooking.
Leftover salad, and brown rice California rolls.
I just ate the sushi, and I’m actually pretty full so the salad might get pitched out. Its kind of on its last legs anyway.
Not much else too report. I’m burnt out beyond belief, but I’m doing my best to make due. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel!
That’s it, that’s all! Night!

I had my first experience driving in Toronto this morning. I only got a little lost, and only managed to cut off about 234 people… which prompted 3424 people to honk at me. I arrived alive, which is a miracle in itself.
After a long day at work, my workout mojo was definitely missing in action. I drove to my hotel, checked in, and changed into my workout gear. I himmed and hawed for another half hour, and finally got my ass to the gym. I ran for 45 mins, and did upper body and abs. You know what? I was pretty freakin’ proud of myself. You never regret a workout, you only regret missing one right?
When I started travelling extensively for work, I was pretty neat and tidy. Now… not so much. Evidence is shown below.
I didn’t even bother to get changed in the bedroom…. just whipped everything off in the living room. I’m classy like that.
Dinner was quick and easy.
A PC Blue Menu Pesto Chicken meal, a side salad and some fruit for dessert.
If I must say, I’m also kind of proud of the way I’m eating while travelling. I was eavesdropping on some colleagues chatter today and they were complaining about gaining weight while away. I’m proud to say that the scale has gone down since I’ve been away. Go me!
I’m off to relax a little before bed.
As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the city, it feels great to look outside and see GREEN again.
Until next time!

Andrew just arrived in the big city.
In preparation for his arrival, I got up early’ish to get in a little workout.
I ran for 45 mins on the treadmill, and did an upper body workout.
I came back up to the condo and had a little breakfast.
1 WW english muffin, and a side of strawberries.
I think we’re getting a new roof on our house today. Andrew chose to vacate to avoid listening the hammering and nailing. Chances are it *might* rain in Ottawa today, so he may arrive home to a new roof…. or he may not. Time will tell!
I have a big day planned, so I best get to the shower.
Have a wonderful and healthy Saturday!
