Jan 22nd – 28th Weekly Wrap Up

Last week was what I would say a low and lazy week. I was feeling under the weather for most of it and by the end of the week came down with a nasty head cold. You know, weekends are make for fun…not head colds and sick!

Jan 22nd – 28th

I did a few work outs last week but nothing big. It went a little like this:

Monday Jan 22nd: Nothing. But I sure got a lot of sleep that night.

Tuesday: Nothing again. However, my husband and I went to the Banff Film Festival in Wolfville which was awesome! It was a series of films from 4 – 30 minutes in length, everything from climbing to badass women slack liners and mountain bikers, to a 90 female skater and major expeditions on glaciers.


Wednesday: Nothing, other then PT exercises and walking our dog.

Thursday: 5km Treadmill Run + PT exercises. Treadmill run was nice and easy though it felt like I haven’t run in ages …. which I haven’t. It was a wear your Tiux compression socks kind of night! {Check out my discount page here}


Friday: Physiotherapy appointment  which went well and more sleep that night. Felt horribly sick that night.

Saturday: Walked the dog. Took the girls to their basketball jamboree and yes, more sleep.

Sunday: Skating and walked the dog. Light skating with Hilary while Lilly was at a birthday party. Again, more sleep.


Though this week was pretty low and lazy, I needed it. I’m not training for anything and my body just needed to rest a lot this week. I’ve been just trying to feel better so rest, sleep, hydration and good food…okay, maybe some bad food in there too (let’s be honest)

It’s another week and we’re expecting a snow storm tonight and tomorrow! Woohoo! Yup, I love snow and hoping to get out our snow shoes!!!

How was your week?

Ever lay low for a whole week THEN get super sick?

What’s one thing you are looking forward to this week?

I don’t always post on here but you can find me posting daily over at Instagram

 I’m linking up with Holly and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap today.

  1. So sorry to hear about your head cold – that’s the worse!

    I think sometimes our bodies just need a little RnR and we have to listen. We push our bodies so hard, especially when we’re training for something, so it’s no wonder that we need to take a little downtime.

  2. I’m so sorry you got sick again! I have been so busy at my clinic with all the sick kids who have been coming in. This is a bad winter!

    My sister and I went to a film festival Saturday night too–same kind of films. How fun!

    • It sure is a bad winter for colds. Wasn’t the film festival great! It was our second year going. Have you ever seen “Four Mums in a Boat”? Hilarious and amazing story. Literally, four Mum’s from Britian that boat across the Atlantic Ocean. It was one of my favourite films from last year.

  3. Every now and then we need a lazy week.
    At least you are not training for anything.
    I travel a lot for work but this week I get to sleep in my own bed ALL WEEK.

  4. There is nothing wrong with a “lazy” week, especially if your body needs the rest. I ice skated some as a kid, but have not skated since. It was actually one thing this clumsy body of mine could do without hurting itself LOL

  5. I’m sorry to hear you were sick. Sometimes, we just simply need to rest. It’s not lazy, just necessary. I can’t remember the last time I went ice skating. We have a rink here in town and I’m sure I went a few times when the kids were little. I’m certain I’ve never used show shoes though. That sounds cool! Thanks for linking.

  6. Oh, no! You’re not supposed to get sick when you slow down! What’s the motivation for resting when that’s the outcome???

    I’m sorry you weren’t feeling well 😦

    I am glad you were able to get a little bit of a rest, though. It’s good for all of us.

  7. Your skating photo reminded me of how my kids want to try ice skating but are too scared! I like how your daughter is using a chair for balance. Hope you feel better this week.

  8. Sometimes rest is just necessary. I can always tell when I’m about to get sick because I’m suddenly so exhausted and feel like I could sleep for days. I hope you feel better soon!!

  9. oh my I’m sorry you were feeling so ill. That sucks! I don’t usually get sick at all, but when I do it’s a total nightmare. So I really feel for you! hopefully you are already on the mend now.
