Summer Bucket List

Our summer bucket list is posted on our refrigerator and we've been busy putting check marks in tiny boxes. There is zero pressure to complete every activity on the list, but I enjoy writing the list every year because it gets everyone's creative ideas in one place. The next activity to cross off our list is Henry's last Forest School class. To celebrate Henry's preschool graduation, I am going to take him to the movie theatre to watch Finding Dory. When I was little, my mom always took us to East Side Mario's and the latest Disney movie to celebrate our good report cards and I'm excited to continue the tradition with my kids.

A little thank-you for Henry's incredible Forest School teachers.
Our summer bucket list also includes; strawberry picking. Check!

Trips to the museum on rainy days. Check!

And trips to the cottage. Check!

Plant a balcony garden. Check!

Eat healthy. Check! I recently wrapped up my third round of Whole30 and I am down over 25lbs since I started this healthy lifestyle in February. I have since reintroduced quinoa, beans, oats etc and I still feel great. My thyroid levels are perfect and Mike hasn't had indigestion since we cut gluten, dairy and refined sugar from our diets. I know I've said this before, but I would recommend this program to anyone looking for a healthy reset button.

Meal prep: Oh She Glows Quinoa Cakes.
Exercise. Check! Since my last blog post, I completed the BBG 1.0 program and I will wrap up the 21 Day Fix exercise program tomorrow. I'm not a creature of habit. I always need to switch things up or I get bored. I've decided my next fitness goal is to be able to do a pull-up. I'm hoping Jillian Michael's 90 Day Body Revolution will get me there. I start her program on Monday. Wish me luck!

Other items on our summer bucket list include; pool parties, barbecues, Canada Day fireworks, picnics, camping and our big road trip to the east coast. I love creating meaningful memories for my babies and I'm happy to say we are officially in the groove of summer 2016!

Happy weekend, friends!
