Yesterday Jeff and I headed out for a 7KM hike, our longest one this year and we timed it to be done before it got to hot in the day. What is that saying about best laid plans? The hike was great, we were along the ocean for most of it b... Read more

Yesterday I slipped on my jeans to do a quick run to Costco, as I bent over to put on my shoes I felt that embarrassing gaping letting me know I had forgotten to zip up my pants. I quickly stood up but discovered they were zipped up. I bent o... Read more

This morning as I started doing my hair and make-up I stopped and noticed how much clearer my face is these days, then I noticed something else, the lines around my eyes are goner and my skin tone is even. I checked my elbows next, smooth. My h... Read more

I get migraines, have since I was 10 years old. Over the years I've found many non-drug remedies to help relieve the pain including relaxation techniques, listening to my body's signals and when in doubt the Twinkies remedy. The other n... Read more

In the quest to find activities that get us out of the house and away from our computers my husband and I decided to go geocaching on the weekend. We had a great time hiking around looking for the treasures. One of the great things about wher... Read more

Last week Jeff and I sat down and planned out our summer. We knew becoming empty nesters could go either way for us. Either we would get out and do more of sit and eat like a couple of teenagers who's parents have gone away for the weekend. W... Read more

I finally convinced my husband to go on a real hike with me, literally off the beaten path. It's one of my favourites that my daughter and I have done that involves hiking up a creek bed, some of it still running this time of year, along rock bl... Read more

After a short break I have found my way back and for the first time I lost while I was gone. Now granted my thyroid was acting up last month and causing stupid weight gains but I lost it all and a bit more. I think the health issues were all ... Read more
Frustrating but need to keep focused

A couple of weeks ago I gained 12 pounds in 5 days. Frustrating. Especially since I was diligently keeping within my calorie intake and working out each day. My water was where it should be, I was sleeping and although life was stressful ther... Read more

Last weekend I had an awesome time. I spent one morning down on the water watching my daughter in her dragon boat races. It looked like so much fun I was envious of her. In between the races I watched the people in their kayaks paddling aroun... Read more

I always wanted to be one of those people who was happy to have a salad for lunch. I tried so hard when I was in my twenties to be one of those together women that always said, "A salad is fine for me thanks." when it came to lunch. I would o... Read more

Yesterday was a great day, I did a small amount of running and got that wonderful high. I love that feeling of running and glad that my instincts kicked in yesterday and got my body moving. Maybe doing it on a stair climber wasn't the brighte... Read more
Running again

Maybe it was the fresh air coming into my office, maybe the feeling of empowerment took hold or maybe the healthy eating has caused a side effect I wasn't expecting but today instead of bopping along on my step climber I started moving faster... Read more
