My cookie!
Wednesday, September 23, 2015      11 comments

Yesterday I was in a baking mood again but this time I really wanted my favourite cookie. Ones that are way too dangerous to keep in the house. I made them up, put 4 on a plate. Two for my husband, two for me and then bagged up the rest and h... Read more
Feeling like a tough chick

Tonight at boot camp we did some exercises that I just kinda glared at, you're kidding right? I CAN'T DO THAT! Laying on my back I had to lift my butt and then do pull-ups on the bar for a min. Ugh, ya, sure, um, er....seriously? My... Read more
And yet my world didn't stop turning

Been an interesting couple of days. On Saturday it was pouring and really windy. I stood looking out at the valley and decided to opt out of obstacle training. Not that I didn't want to go but I knew how slippery everything would be and... Read more
Accept being normal

This week when I attended my boot camp I was a bit earlier and chatted with the trainer for a few minutes. I laughed when she apologized for the class not being hard enough for me. She went on to say how she noticed that last week I was keepi... Read more

Yesterday I got to spend a few hours in ER. Not the most fun way to spend the day but it reminds me so much how grateful I am to be healthy. Throughout my life I have had times when my body acts like it's having a heart attack, all the sympto... Read more

Ice cream and hiking
Friday, September 04, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday for no reason at all I fell into an ice cream frenzy. There was no reason for it, I had a good day, no triggers. I got the ice cream out for my normal serving but for some reason ended up eating and eating and eating. I finally put it ... Read more
Well that was awkward

Yesterday I rushed from my appointment, I decided nothing was going to stop me from going to my boot camp. I was wrong, turned out there was one thing that I had no control over. The class starts next week so they were closed. I d... Read more

Tonight is my first boot camp. I've done obstacle training ones but this is the first time I'm doing a general, kick your butt, boot camp. I'm excited, but scared to do this! (I was given a heads up on what will be involved.) Yesterday ... Read more

This weekend our area got hit with a wind storm and a couple of small earthquakes. Lots of homes still without power, we're one of the lucky ones, ours came on within a few hours. I watched trees come tumbling down including a huge one in the... Read more

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      10 comments

I had taken a few days off work and really enjoyed some downtime at home. It was fun to stock up the freezer, go for runs whenever I felt like it, washed all the walls and windows, cleaned up gardens and just enjoy doing nothing. This morning... Read more
