Once my mom found out that my sister was in town we brought her out for a lovely lunch and were totally spoiled, followed by a fun Ikea visit. It was a great little afternoon spent with family.
This is my sister holding one of my mom’s birthday presents…a new puppy.
Having my sister for a quick visit and for some extra hands during all the last minute running around for my mom’s birthday was definitely helpful and awesome. Despite the craziness of the weekend I was still able to make it to my training session on Friday and a yoga class Saturday morning. I always fine it super helpful to keeping up with my exercise during a hectic time, it gives me a second to slow down and take a second for myself which I often forget to do when things get crazy.
This weekend was also Remembrance Day which meant that Ottawa put on a beautiful ceremony downtown and most of the businesses and radio stations observed a moment of silence at 11am. This also means that today I have the day off, so I was able to put in a nice and early training session followed by an early afternoon run. Today being a glorious 17 degrees outside so it was hard to pass up lacing up the running shoes and hitting the pavement. It was fun to be running in a tank top on the 12th of November, when just last week I had to take out my outdoor running gear.
It feels great to be back on track and working out and loving it again. I hope everyone has had a great weekend and has had the chance to enjoy some of this wonderful day!!!
