I live and work in Chisasibi Quebec. I travel up and down the James Bay Highway to each Quebec Cree Nation to work in each of their schools. I pretty much live in my car. I also occasionally rescue stray dogs. This blog is to document living in isolation.

*Vegan* Breakfast crumble I made! Good as dessert too :)
Innards
1.0 lb(s), Apricots - Raw (I used apples and strawberries)
3.0 tbsp(s), Sugar White (I used 1 tbsp and 1 tbsp of Stevia)
1.0 tbsp(s), Wheat flour 
1.0 tsp, Spices - Nutmeg, ground (used cinnamon, I didn’t have N)
4.0 tbsp, Butter - Salted (I used Coconut Oil)
MIX all together and place in a pan.
Topping
6.0 tbsp(s), Sugar - Light Brown (I used 3tbsp)
0.5 cup(s), Cereals - Oats, regular and quick and instant, unenriched, cooked with water, without salt (oatmeal)
0.5 cup(s), Wheat flour - White, all-purpose, enriched, bleached
1.0 tsp, Spices - Salt, table
2.0 tbsp(s), Nuts - Almonds
MIX and put on top of fruit cook at 400 for 30-40 minutes.
This time I used apples and strawberries with one tbsp of sugar and one Stevia. The crust I used 3 tbsp of brown sugar instead of 6. So therefore 4 tbsp of sugar instead of 9 tbsp: 180 calories vs 405 - It adds up man!
I also used coconut oil instead of butter, so I believe this is vegan.
I divided it into six servings. 
It tastes great! (I reduced the sugar because of the strawberries!)

Resignation Email

I emailed everyone to say I’m resigning from the Cree School Board, just to let people know as I work with 11 schools, and I’ve received many responses - all being positive and lovely, saying they will miss me :) Here is the longest reply so far:

————-

Hello Claire,
 
I was very surprised to read your e-mail. I guess I thought that you would be with us forever.
 
I want to thank you for your great contribution not only to the School Board, but also to me and the Educators at Waapihtiiwewan School. I truly appreciate the training you provided and the support.
 
I wish you the best with whatever you decide to do with your education, experience and talents. Perhaps now you will be able to have a real personal life and who knows where that will lead you.
 
Remember to always take care of yourself and no matter what you do or where you go continue to maintain your wonderful smile.
 
Sincerely,
—————

I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.

I’ve never seen this show and I already love it.

Fitness and Weight Progress.

March 2012: 175 pounds

November 2013: 164 pounds

April 2014: 155 pounds

I am 5’7.5 inches tall (.5 inch counts!)

I have lost 15.5 inches all over my body since March 2012!

I have lost a total of 20 pounds!

I don’t think I can loose any more weight, we shall see though.

I’m aiming for good fitness and I may stay around the same weight as I lose a bit more fat and gain muscle - I’m proud of myself either way!
