Summer Love (And where the heck I've been!)

I have been a bad, bad, blogger.

I have not blogged for two whole weeks. Here's the deal...I had sort of planned out my entire summer based on my Personal Trainer certification, only to have my dreams slashed by the girl at the BCRPA who pointed to the stacks and stacks of hundreds of packages to go through...I will now have to wait 4-6 weeks to complete the next step.

I felt very defeated and frustrated for a little while there, but then I realised a few things....first of all, I'm sure they make this process hard so that EVERYONE doesn't become a trainer, it shouldn't be that easy anyways. 2nd, I should not have planned the outcome of what I was doing. I can always control what I do but I can't control the outcome, ie how fast I do it! I also remembered what I'm always preaching to everyone: Everything happens for a reason. It sounds so cliche, but I can already see how having this extra time is benefiting me in the long run. And so...forward march!

Another reason why I haven't blogged is because I went through a period of feeling like I had nothing to blog about but that spell is over!  A few things to get me back on track:

This nicer weather in Vancouver has made me pull out my trusty pitcher and whip up some of my favourite summer time not Sangria!! This drink is calorie free!! All you have to do is brew a few bags of this: 
Then mix it with either homemade lemonade made with Stevia, or if your naughty like me...Crystal Light Lemonade! Soo yummy and refreshing, tastes just like Starbucks. Of course you can use any type of tea, I like to use fruit infused green tea as well, I find with that all you need are some lemon slices and a few packets of Stevia and it tastes great! 

You know what goes great with this drink? A fab beach read! I randomly discovered this new (to me) author, Kristan Higgins and her books are so fun! Kind of a romance type book, I suppose, since that's the section I found her in but quite funny, good storylines and hilarious characters, definitely worth checking out if you are looking for something to throw in your beach bag!

I promise I will not wait two weeks to post again! I miss blogging when I do that, I don't know why, it just makes me happy! More soon!



  1. mmm passion tea lemonade. I love that stuff. The problem is, I could drink an entire pitcher to myself.
