I hope all of my Canadian friends enjoyed their Canada day weekend. I sure did! I will get to the details in a second but first I want to share a few things.
1. I accomplished my goal of 100 push ups in a week. I even did my last 25 with a few drinks in me, but It still counts right? This weeks challenge is to have half you plate filled with fruit and veggies. This will be a bit more challenging but I am certainly going to try! If you want to follow the summer challenges here's the link.
2. I got a new part time job in my field. I start orientation tomorrow, I'm looking forward to my new adventure. For those of you who don't know I took Personal Support Worker last year in school (Health Care Aide) My new job is working in Home Care. I am look forward to the experience which will help me gain the skills I will need when I pursue nursing.
3. I accomplished one of my three month goals.
I went hiking with my sister in Pink Lake it's a beautiful trail. It was 2.5 km but with a LOT of stairs and a lot hills. To make sure I had a good workout I ran up the stairs and by the end I was a sweaty mess. I even got my sister to do it.
This was the view of the trail. The water was so clear!!

My Canada Day was amazing I got to spent it at a beautiful cottage with old friends and new friends. I tried to make some healthy eating choices such as turkey sausage, whole wheat buns, salads,veggies and fruit but of course I did have some cookies, chips and ice cream.
p.s my sister took the cottage pictures too ;)
I would have posted a few more pictures but it wouldn't upload! I was almost ready to throw my laptop off the balcony!
I didn't weight myself on Monday since I was away. I decide to wait until next Monday, that way all the "extra drinks" will be flushed out.
My exercise for the past week:
30 minutes on the treadmill
100 push ups throughout the week
90 minutes of hiking
50 minutes Spin Class
Happy July 4th to my American friends.
