New Inspiration

The new year has begun and I’ve decided to make this the best year of my life yet. I’m determined to learn more about myself and hopefully gain more of a sense of where I want to go with my career.

Yesterday, I had the thought that I really want to take charge of this blog. I want it to be known as a Fitness and Lifestyle blog, as I think that really aligns with where I am in my life right now.

I recently took a clean cooking class with Alyssa from Nourished at a wonderful family owned and operated restaurant at the bottom of Denmen Sol Sun Belt Cookery. We made several dishes including Alyssa’s infamous Go Go Juice (Green Juice) for breakfast or your afternoon pick me up, the most divine hummus I’ve ever had, a delicious Kale salad (I don’t normally like raw kale) and a traditional Moroccan dish with vegetables and spices. I’ve already made the hummus at home with my handy food processor and made myself a lunch/snack of kale, carrots and hummus. Absolutely delicious. Still waiting on the rest of the recipes so I can try them at home. I am particularly excited to try the kale salad.

I bought my food processor when I worked at London Drugs a few years ago. It was on sale and I was looking for an affordable appliance to help me make healthy meals. I’m now looking into getting a blender. The infamous Vitamix is buzzed about all over, but being in a period of transition (read unemployed) the nearly $500 price point is a bit much. Alyssa suggests to get a Nutribullet, but I haven’t had much of a chance to look into it. I ‘m going to pop into Canadian Tire tomorrow after my first Tight Club class at the Distrikt.

On that note, let me give you a little review of the Distrikt. It is a beautiful open studio space just past the Iron Worker’s. It has beautiful décor and little trinkets around the space. It is owned and operated by two inspiring entrepreneurs Jian and Alex. So far I’ve tried a Crush It/Hush It class (bootcamp and yoga), Pilates and a yoga class. Alex is an amazing yoga teacher. I’m looking forward to taking more classes with her. Pilates is challenging and I really like Heather who teaches the class. Crush It/Hush It is a brilliant combo. Battle Ropes are neat (I’ll probably regret saying that), push ups are terrible and yoga is wonderful. I would definitely recommend checking this new studio out. Support local entrepreneurs and get fit for a reasonable price ($10 for each class in January)!

Look for more posts coming soon. Up next, a further review of Cadence.
