I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine flew by. I was in Kingston for Queen’s homecoming and it was so much fun. I loved being ‘home’ and getting a little taste of Queen’s life again.
If you live in Canada you’ve probably heard of Queen’s homecoming and how crazy it was a few years ago. The Aberdeen street party was the biggest party of all homecoming and hundreds of people filled on to Aberdeen to party. When I was in third year they decided to cancel homecoming because the parties got so out of hand.
That didn’t stop people from organizing ‘faux-coming’ and filling the streets once again. The police and the university caught on and they sent police officers from all over the province to come keep things under control. Police officers lined the streets with guards and in full gear and some even rode around on horses.

After three (?) years of ‘faux-coming’ Queen’s finally decided to bring homecoming back this year. The streets were packed with people and there were keggers and bbq’s all over the student housing area but I think students were pretty well behaved.
I can’t wait for next year! Cha gheil.
Last week Recap
Last week I did pretty good. I followed my meal plan preeetty closely. I switched around the meals a bit depending on what time I got home from work and I really enjoyed some of the recipes I made. I did have some vegan cinnamon buns on Friday and take out a few times on Saturday (in Kingston) but overall, not too bad.
My workouts were great.. until Friday. I had great workouts Monday-Thursday and then the weekend came and I didn’t get any in. Ooops. Finding time to fit workouts in is something I have to work on.
Monday: 5km run, leg workout
Tuesday: 3km run, 20 min elliptical
Wednesday: yoga class
Friday: 5km run, arm circuit
Saturday: 8km run
Meal Plan (dinners)
Monday: Leftover tofu quiche
Tuesday: Veggie and rice soup
Wednesday: Baked butternut squash with beans and avocado
Thursday: Spinach/Kale salad with vegan chicken fingers
Friday: Packed sandwiches for the car ride
Saturday: Thanksgiving dinner
My goal this week is to do two morning workouts! This one is going to be a struggle. I leave to go to work every morning at 7:30 so to get in a workout in the am I’ll have to get up between 5-5:30. Oh boy.
What’s your goal for this week?
Any plans for thanksgiving weekend?
