My first trip to London is complete after spending nine days there celebrating the wedding of one of my very best friend. While the sights and sounds of the city are undoubtedly incredible, I found plenty of delicious tastes along the way too. I definitely found most restaurants to be vegetarian-friendly (including many pubs that even had vegetarian sausage in their traditional English breakfasts) which was awesome to see….
Week Four of BBG is done – where is the time going?
I completed all of the workouts according to schedule this week! Still struggling with pushups, but feeling way stronger with squats and my cardio endurance is getting better.
This week, I’m including my Fit Bit data from the 3 strength workouts (Legs on Monday, Arms and Abs Wednesday, Full Body Friday). Even though the BBG workouts are 28 minutes (plus one minute between each seven minute set), I do cardio warmup which is why it says each workout is around 45 minutes. Do you guys like looking at this kind of data? If so, I’ll keep including it!
I came down with a nasty case of bronchitis at the end of the week, so I’m a little unsure about what this week is going to look like. I don’t know if I’ll pause for a week and start Week 5 next week and just let my body rest, or if I start to feel better in the next few days maybe I can still fit all of the workouts in. Everything I read says not to mess around with pushing yourself once your sickness is “below the neck” (ie in your chest instead of your nose or throat), but I really don’t want to miss a week! I know if I don’t get the rest I need though, I risk missing out on more than a week from getting even sicker.
Until next week!

Week two is done! I had to modify the schedule a little bit because I was gone to Vancouver from Friday-Monday, but I still finished all of the workouts – yes!…
Since my surgery, working out hasn’t been a priority, because I’ve been more focused on basic bodily functions like trying to make what’s left of my pancreas work. But, I’m going to London in just over a month, and I want to have the stamina and energy to do lots of walking. I also want to build muscle mass, because I’ve never been muscular to begin with, but after my surgery, I lost any muscle I’ve ever had. I’m not looking to lose weight, but I truly just want to be stronger and not want to collapse at the top of the stairs each time I make it up, ya know?…
I’ve just returned (okay, not technically true – I’m in Toronto for a loooong layover) from a trip to Florida, and I’ve purchased a whole heck of a bunch of new products from Ulta, Target, Glossier, and Sephora, including products you can’t get in Canada, and all of my VIBRouge sale picks. My suitcase was five pounds heavier on the way home and 90% of that is makeup and skincare.
