Find your Girl Gang. Photo Credit: Jenna Matthews

Halfway to Banff….


We are halfway through the week and it is almost time for me to go on my girl getaway! I am going to something called the Sweat Alberta Retreat with girls from my fitness group! If you are new here, I should backtrack. A year or two ago now, I bought a fitness program online that you can print out…

Being Attached to Fear.


I get attached to STUFF. Sometimes it is the memory of buying it. The anticipation of it being yours. Or it is the memory of the person that gave it to you. If it was someone special or a defining moment in your relationship when you received it, that only makes it more special. I have tons of “special” moments…

Inspired to be….


  Today I had coffee with a good friend. We were talking about how I have started to wake up every morning to work out and she had this to say, “You inspire me to…. feel inspired.” I laughed and took that as one of the greatest compliments ever.

I Still Hate Mornings But Haven’t Stopped Gaining Strength.


It is Friday and time to reflect on my past week. I wanted to share my fitness story with you, but I am busy sorting through that history and pictures, as I know a visual is always nice, and I haven’t finished going through all of it yet. I will do a history post next week; from my skinny childhood…

Why I Want to Cry When My Alarm Goes Off


I am NOT a morning person. I never have been. I take about two hours to feel like my eyes are fully open and I often feel energized at night time. Night time is when I suddenly feel the urge to start giant craft projects or when I have my best writing ideas. My daughter calls me Snorlax, the famous…

Making Progress at Physio


I went to physiotherapy this morning and it was wonderful. I love the lady I go to. She listens and is very activity based in her approach, which suits me just fine. Plus at the end we do neat stuff to me, like wrap me in a warm blanket and send little pulses in to my shoulder blade. It felt…
