Can you believe that yet another busy week is nearly over? I'm astonished every time I realize that it's already mid-November and the year will be ending next month. However, the lateness of the year isn't so surprising when I wake up to find frost on the ground, freezing cold air, and realize that the days get dark before 5 pm.
In other news, I'm proud to say that my friend and I successfully woke up at 5:15 am every day since Monday for the gym (four days in a row)! The saddest fail occurred on Tuesday, which is a statutory holiday for Remembrance Day, when we woke up early for boot camp class. Unfortunately, it completely slipped our minds that the recreational centre we use for those classes is a public facility and would be closed for the holiday. After moaning and groaning about our mistake, we decided to camp out for one freezing hour in front of our other gym, Club 16, until it opened at 7 am. Then we did an intense 50 minute workout until I had to get ready for work. That was fun...
Despite the fact that I've been waking up early for the gym, working out for one to two hours, and then going to work not long after, I've been greatly surprised at how awake and alert I've been. This most certainly is a result of my going to sleep earlier and earlier in order to get a better sleep (I'm now able to shut everything off and sleep by around 9:45 pm). Tomorrow, I'll be having my first "rest day" since Sunday and will be able to "sleep in" until 7 am. How things have changed since the days when waking up at 8 am seemed too early!

With regard to this outfit post, I had originally planned to shoot it outdoors; however, by the time I got home after a shopping date with the lovely Jasmeen, it was much too dark outside to take adequate photos! It was then that I fully realized how far into the fall season we are and that winter is most certainly on its way. At least I was able to wear some cozy items, such as this turban, sweater, and comfortable jeans. It's been extremely hard to resist all of the super cute sweaters in stores lately-- in fact, just yesterday I bought a cute baby blue sweater that I can't wait to wear.
