S to the 5
Happy Saturday lovely friends of mine How was everyone’s day?
It was a gorgeous day here in London and I have so much to share with all of you Interestingly, all of the things I have to share with you can be categorized under a word starting with an “s” So, I thought it would be fun to roll with that
Welcome to my “S” to the 5 post Here are the 5 S’s of my Saturday! Let’s get going!
As I shared yesterday, my Daddy, Uncle, and I went to the London Knights hockey game It was super fun and I am so happy we went. Hockey is my second favourite sport to watch (curling comes first and always will; it’s kind of a big deal in my family), so I thoroughly enjoyed how I spent my night last night with the guys My Uncle is really into hockey, too, so I know he loved it. Daddy loved it too.
Unfortunately, we lost. But, it was still a great game. It was an exciting one! Especially once it was over… seriously, take a look at this!
I am not one for hockey fights, but I have never witnessed this happening before. The entire team broke out into a fight. At one point in time each player was holding another player ready to go at each other. So entertaining. I couldn’t help but take pictures! It just looked too hilarious not to capture.
The sports theme carried on to today when I found out that the Western Mustangs were playing McMaster for the Yates Cup!
The two guys love football and since the weather was a gorgeous 11 above, I thought that going to the football game would be quite enjoyable for me as well
Football, not my favourite, but I have been watching more and more football lately, so now that I have a sense of what is going on I enjoy it much more than I used to
Being with my two favourite guys made it even more enjoyable, too! Sunny weather or not, I love being with my Daddy and Uncle
Once again, our team didn’t win. Maybe we are bad luck? I guess we’ll test that theory… watching the London Knights’ game on TV right now with the guys… We’re having more of a relaxing night tonight My boys are tired
That’s right friends, my sashimi cravings have been satisfied Finally.
We went to my favourite Sushi restaurant in London for lunch
I highly recommend going to Gozen Bistro if you are or ever will be in London and need to sink your teeth into some top notch sushi
Today, I went with a sashimi set which comes with a house salad (super fresh mix of veg served with the best salad dressing ever), the best miso soup you will ever try, a cup of rice, and my favourite…
Drool worthy sashimi. Oh goodness. Would you just look at that!?
The way I work it is… take a little bite of each piece and determine which is my favourite, then save the best for last You always have to save the best for last in my world
The salmon wins. The salmon always wins at Gozen Bistro. They should win an award for their salmon sashimi.
I could have some for an evening snack right now it’s that good.
Today was weird. Well, my morning workout was weird. I kind of felt weak and not totally into my workout which was super odd because it was shoulder training day and I live for shoulder training day. I just couldn’t get into it, but I managed to work up a sweat anyway I did my usual shoulder routine, but ended with this sweaty circuit…
(for those of you with an interval timer, set it for 16 rounds of 10 and 50 – using the 10 seconds to rest and 50 to work)
Jump rope with high knees – 50 seconds
(10 second rest)
Mountain climbers with medicine ball – 50 seconds
(10 second rest)
V sit ups – 50 seconds
(10 second rest)
Russian twist with medicine ball – 50 seconds
(10 second rest)
The circuit will take you through each exercise 4 times. Let me know if you try this
Sometimes I do 15 mins of HIIT on the treadmill right after my shoulder workout, but today I just wasn’t feeling it, so I made this circuit instead and I enjoyed it You just gotta do what you love doing and today I was feeling like changing it up a bit
I had a nice little surprise for myself tonight Last Tuesday, as in November 1st, I wrote a really difficult exam – Advanced Food Science. To be honest, I thought I failed. Like, a big time fail. I didn’t have much time to study for this exam (only the Monday prior to), so I was pretty scared to get my mark back.
Marks were posted today and I was pleasantly surprised Although I did not do as well as I would have liked to on a regular exam, under the circumstances I was in and due to the fact that I literally thought I big time failed, I am happy with my mark Smiles here tonight! Passing marks are always welcome!
Alright, I just had to fit this into tonight’s post
Quick update on last night’s Marlin steak
Done to perfection!
So thick and juicy.
Do you agree that “saliva” was an appropriate heading?
Well guys, I’m off to do some biochem homework now… I have been a huge slacker in the homework department lately and should probably finish this paper that I have due on Monday…
Come back tomorrow for some more chit chat Love you all!
How do you feel about hockey fights?
What do you order when you go for sushi?
Does your homework fall to the wayside when you have visitors?
I appreciate all of the hugs I have been getting from my Daddy and Uncle I am such a hug lover.
