    Packing for Vancouver | Outfits and Activities

    I’m headed out for Vancouver! Jake and I are once again off to some more traveling – this time in Canada. Vancouver randomly popped into our heads a while back as a place to visit because it has lot to offer – a big city, shopping, the ocean, mountains.

We planned to take a longer trip than some of our previous trips, a full six days, so packing proved a bit more challenging this time. Outfits  This vacation is the longest we’ve ever taken…

But I wanted to post an update on how things went the first six weeks and what I’ll be changing for the final half. This year was the first time I tried flexible dieting, or if it fits my macros which it’s also referred…

Good news is that most of it should melt away by the weekend. As you’re reading  this, I’m also getting done with work for the week since we had a half day on this Good Friday.
