Thanks for the heads up regarding the stickied posts, the other thing you mentioned might take a little longer as I'll have to look into how I could do that.

All good in the hood?

No worries! All good in this hood mate, crazy busy, seems to be something happening everyday then when there isn't I just wanna chillax :)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


As above, everything has been hectic! Two weeks later I have finally got a bed and bedding, few nights I spent on the floor cause I'm stubborn :)

Last 5 days (excluding today which is rest day (although did bike home from Ikea with Sheets, Duvet and pillows which would have looked ridiculous)!).
Saturday: Hike out at Bowen Island (only 8km, but walking around rest of island added up)

Sunday: Beach Volleyball

Monday: Gym
Incline Press - 75x8, 105x10,105x10, 105x10
Leg Press: 200x8, 280x10, 300x10, 300x10
Lat Raises: 90x10 110x10, 110x10, 110x10
Shrugs: 90x25, 90x25, 9x25, 90x25

Tuesday: Rugby Training, 1st one in over 7 years! Pretty much was 90 minutes of touch, but my legs are still feeling it!)

Wednesday: Pitch and Putt Golf, think its the 2nd time Ive played this year.

So not a lot of gym happening, but Ive decided thats cool cause apparently the winter here means lots more indoor time so I shall make the most of it!

Couple photos:

1st: From the top of Grouse Mountain looking over back towards Vancouver.

2nd: A cool fallen tree trunk fallen in a lake at Bowen Island.
