This weekend ended up being fairly booked up with our Friday night plans of going to Black & Blue, a Saturday night birthday party, and Sunday football festivities. To start, Black & Blue is outrageously amazing. I had the Beef Wellington for the first time ever and it was fantastic. Ever since Hells Kitchen was aired on TV I’ve always been curious to try Beef Wellington, so when I saw on the menu I just had to try it. The combination of the amazing food and great restaurant atmosphere may have just made this restaurant jump onto my “must try” list for those visiting Vancouver.
After Friday evening my weekend was fairly low-key which was fantastic. January has been all about jump starting 2014 on a healthy note by banishing alcohol, increasing meditation and exercise, so I’ve really enjoyed these “low key” weekends to focus on these resolutions. I don’t know if I’ve ever shared this before on The UU but in all honesty I’ve always tended to be tired, headachy and a little under the weather feeling. I have hypothyroidism as well as a spinal injury (you can read on my scoliosis surgery here) so focusing on my health & fitness is really important to living a full active life. In the last few months I had noticed myself slipping in my focus on healthy eating and exercise (thanks Christmas!) so these New Years resolutions have really helped me get back on track.
