Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband and closest friend! He wears a lot of different hats...

In his happy place, mountain biking in the birches.


Another happy place, behind the camera (not usually this one though).  He had a fantastic year photographically, having his first and second shows. 


That second show at Red Rooster also included the debut of his "Summerland Suites" composition. I was so proud I teared up. I'm allowed.

You wouldn't know it to look at the above pictures, but most of his non-work time goes into being a dad and husband.  We are all very thankful for his energy, love and playful spirit!

It's not easy to find many pictures of Jeremy since he takes them all, but here is a shot of all 3 kids beside the rink he's put a lot of hours into.  Technically the rink is a pool in this shot but you get the idea - it's a labour of love to get it going again after every thaw cycle.


Here's to another fantastic year!

Tim numbers

I've been doing a bit of research for the nutrition component of the bootcamp website and got curious about the actual stats for take out.  Summerland doesn't have a whole lot of fast food options, which I guess is a good thing.  I tend to choose Tim Hortons when I do partake so I looked up some of the food ideas and thought I'd share (and scare).   The fat & sugar  in a lot of these is astounding.  They have a calculator on their site to see other foods.


Black coffee: -
Large with cream:  70 cal, 6g fat
Large with milk:   20 cal, 1g fat

Hot Chocolate Supreme (med):  330cal, 10g fat, 49g sugar
Hot Chocolate (med): 240 cal, 6 g fat, 38 g sugar

Iced Capp (med, cream): 360 cal, 15 g fat, 47 g sugar
Iced Capp (med, milk): 220 cal, 2 g fat, 46g sugar

The difference between a large original iced capp with chocolate milk and a small original iced capp with white milk is 160 calories!


Breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg and cheese on a biscuit: 430 cal, 24g fat
Same thing on an English muffin:                                        330 cal, 15g fat
Egg & cheese on English muffin:                                         280 cal, 11 g fat
Egg & cheese wrap:                                                           270 cal, 14g fat
( I like this one without the mayo, don't know what the stats are for that)

Low Fat Blueberry Muffin:  290 cal, 2.5 fat, 32g sugar
Wheat Carrot Muffin:  400 cal, 19 g fat,  26g sugar  yikes.

Oatmeal with mixed berries:                                           210 cal, 2.5 fat, 14g sugar
Low fat vanilla & berry yogurt:                                      160 cal, 1.5 fat, 25g sugar


BBQ  Chicken Wrap Snacker - 190 cal, 4.5 g fat
vs.          Turkey Bacon Club - 390 cal, 18g of fat

If you skip the sauce the BBQ would be even lower but they don't have stats for that.  A  sandwich bun alone is 200 calories!


Timbit, old fashioned glazed:  80 cal, 5g fat, 5 sugar
Chocolate dip donut:  260 cal, 10 fat, 20g sugar

That's a lot of junk in 2 bites!  I can't believe how often I've popped in that "little" snack without thinking.
