PBB: Workout Recap 8 & Weekend Recap.

Good morning! What a whirlwind weekend! I spent just over 24 hours in Calgary and they were the best 24 hours I could have had there! Ashley invited a bunch of bloggers over to her NEW gorgeous house for a housewarming party and after so many weekends of FOMO watching these ladies get together and have a blast I knew I had to make the trip!

I drove down Saturday morning after skipping my run in favour of a rest day and met one of my friends at the Calgary Zoo. Yes, it’s normal for two people over twenty to go to the zoo without little kids in tow. πŸ˜‰ We spent a few hours wandering the zoo and I have established that the penguins and giraffes are the cutest. No question. I headed to Ashley’s later that afternoon and we spent the night chatting, drinking, eating, and playing Cards Against Humanity (not to brag or anything but… I WON… I’d like to add that my parents are obviously super proud that this is the type of thing I excel at HAHA).

The evening at Ashley’s ended near 11 and I headed over to Brie’s house for the night with Becky. (P.S. Thanks Brie for letting me crash on your couch!) We chatted a bit before heading to bed shortly after 1am, knowing we were committed to a BodyPump class the next morning! I headed to Goodlife a bit early and got some cardio done (stairs + elliptical) before my FIRST BodyPump class. I will recap my experience with the class tomorrow but in short, it flew by, I had a great time, and definitely felt the burn!


After BodyPump we changed clothes and headed for brunch at Bow Valley Ranche. I had never been to this adorable little restaurant before but it was super cute! It’s definitely pricey but delicious and a really neat experience. I had the vegetarian omelette with fresh sourdough instead of potatoes. YUM.


We spent the next couple hours eating and chatting and I spent most of the time wishing I lived just a bit closer to this awesome group of women. These ladies are some of the most supportive, encouraging, inspiring, and motivating people on the planet. I am so thankful blogging has brought me such an awesome group of friends, I love these girls!

After brunch I hit the highway to head home, unshowered all weekend and slightly tired, but with a smile on my face from an awesome weekend with some wonderful girls. The BodyPump class topped off a decent week of workouts, minus one longish run that unfortunately didn’t happen, but as my mom said when she read THIS post, “There’s always tomorrow, you can’t do it all.”

I want to thank Ashley, Brie, and all of the girls who made this weekend perfect. If anyone is looking to hire an almost-graduating public health nutrition student in Calgary in the next couple months you know where to find me. πŸ˜‰

Do you go on many weekend getaways or take the time to stay home?

Weekend brunch – yay or nay? I will always say yes to brunch!

Favourite part of your weekend?


  1. I’m so glad you came, Kris!! I wish you lived closer but for now I’ll take whatever I can get.

    And you KILLED IT in your first Pump class!!

  2. Fun weekend! How do you find Calgary? I always thought it would be nice to live so close to the mountains…though the ocean is always a strong opposition.

  3. I’m THRILLED I got to see you and spend time with you this weekend!! It’s crappy we are all so spread out in this province but it just makes our time together so much more special!!! Can’t wait to see you in Vancouver in May!! πŸ™‚

  4. I’m so glad you made the trip to come hang out with all of us! And I’m sorry again that my husband kept us up so late! Haha! πŸ˜‰ You’re welcome to crash anytime though! Hopefully we see you again soon!

  5. It was great seeing you yesterday, I only wish we had more time to chat. Hopefully we can make this weekend work though! πŸ™‚

    I have *STORIES* from the rest of my Sunday… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ HAHA
