i’m a 20 year old canadian, blogging about my love of baking, food, exercise and cars!
like many other food bloggers, my relationship with food has been pretty disordered, and i’m finally starting to find balance. there are still times when i struggle, but i know i’ve made a lot of progress since i started reading healthy living blogs a year or so ago. 🙂
i no longer count calories religiously (or at all), let it ruin my day when i miss a workout, or overeat to the point of discomfort. which is a nice way of saying bingeing.
i eat for health (not weight loss), to fuel my fitness, and occassionally just because its delicious.
i eat mostly whole and unprocessed foods because it’s what makes me feel and function my best, but i indulge when i like.
my favourite workouts include:
running, dancing, gymnastics, yoga or just lots of relaxing stretching, rollerblading, ellipticalling and rowing!
(i’m sure cycling would be up there, if i had a bike. i also include weight lifting in my workouts, but i really have to force myself to do it.)
some fun facts about me:
. i live with my amazing boyfriend jordan in manitoba (canada). we just moved into our own apartment after living together for 10 months, and i love it!
(any more manitoba bloggers? holllaaaa! i’m friendly and i’ll bake you something sweet!)
. i am a HUGE neat freak.
. i would bake all day, everyday if i could.
. my favourite car is a nissan gt-r, and i love the old skyline gt-rs. goooorgeous.
. i get money as a receptionist, and i actually don’t mind my job or the people i work with.
. i am an ex-gymnast and figure skater and dancer, but i got lucky and kept ALL my flexibility! aside from my butt. my butt is tight (harhar).
. a few of my favourite healthy foods: oatmeal, protein waffles, banana bites, veggie-packed pitas, greek yogurt, tuna, cucumbers, mini peppers, watermelon, apples and pineapple.
. favourite not so healthy foods: cheesecake, cookies made with m&ms and pb chips, carrot cake (i really like cream cheese), any of my grandma’s german cookies, candy!
i honestly cannot wait to run a half marathon one day so i can shovel in a handful of jellybeans (peach Jelly Bellys, specifically), smile and take off running.
. i love the misfits, children of bodom, mindless self indulgence, system of a down, 3oh3! and kesha. honestly, there’s not a whole lot of music i don’t like. if i can dance to it, i’ll probably like it. some country even floats my boat.
. i’m really mature in the way that i have my own place, i go to bed early and i don’t go out to get drunk and stupid on weekends anymore. i’m immature in the way that i love spongebob, wear festive socks year-round, and will ocassionally eat a sandwich that looks like a dinosaur. in a nutshell, i’m a huge nerd.
. i really don’t like words with multiple spellings or pronunciations, like do(ugh)nut, because somebody will always try to correct you.
. one of my goals in life is to own nothing but beautiful blue cars.
. my biggest (and totally irrational) fears are 1) tornadoes and 2) undercooked meat.
. my weirdest habit is booking it to the microwave so i can open it at 1 second left, because i HATE the beeping noise.
now you know!
