One week down, 5 more to go! This week went surprisingly fast and I am really proud of my journey so far. Here’s a quick recap of the past week and some things I hope to do this coming week!
The Good: I tried a tons of new recipes, started to build a vegan/no refined sugar pantry, and was not tempted to cheat!
The Bad: Sooo hungry for the few first days.

Today is Bike to School/Work Day! For the last two weeks my school has been promoting this event and encouraging kids to bike or walk to school. For awhile I have been toying with the idea of biking to school and what better day than Bike to School day! Plus, it is a holiday weekend in Canada and I knew the border was going to be crazy this morning. So this was a perfect way to beat the lines.

Throughout the day kids were excited to tell me they saw me riding as they past me on the school bus. Our school was a celebration station for Bike to School/Work Day. A group of local riders were in charge of our station. The tent was stocked with yummy (and healthy) treats, sweet “I biked to school” stickers, bike info, raffle drawings, and more!
Here’s a look at what I ate today. For full details and updates on my no sugar/no dairy journey click here!
This is the first thing you see upon leaving Canada and entering the States. I was dying laughing and I had to take a picture to show Kyle. Once I got to the desk the officers asked why I was taking photos of the border officer. When I explained that I’m American and I wanted to show this to my Canadian husband, they just laughed!
My Momma’s Bucket List
For my parent’s 30th anniversary they went to Niagara & Cooperstown. Niagara was on my mom’s bucket list & Cooperstown on my dad’s. Here they are at the same place Jim & Pam got married (hehe)!
Can you believe this view from their hotel room??? Oh. My. Goodness. Stunning!
Goodbye, Dunder Mifflin! What a wonderful finale for an amazing show! Thank you for all the laughs and wonderful memoreis. You will be missed!
Daily Sweat! Yoga + 5 miler
**I actually only did half of this…lunch breaks are only so long.**
5 Miler with Marie! Run for Water is 10 days away!! Oh…I almost forgot…I went to the P.T. today because I have been having pain in my right glute & heel. The Doc gave me some stretches to add to my daily routine. I should be doing them 2+ times a day. Hopefully, I’ll feel a change soon!
My Daddy’s Bucket List
My dad has attended a home game for 30 MLB teams, an All Star Game, the World Series, and as of yesterday the Baseball Hall of Fame. His baseball bucket list is now complete!
From my momma’s Facebook: “The museum director gave James a personal introduction to the Hall of Fame and two books about the museum…Of course now James has to see all of the new stadiums too. : ) I guess were not done yet.”
No we are not done yet. Both my little brother, Jordan, and I have a few more to visit before we get to 30 (I have been to about half and Jordan only has a handful more)! And don’t forget about when we have kids. We gotta keep the family tradition going:)
