Starting the year with a 5K
Friday, January 01, 2016      6 comments

This morning was the "Resolution Race", a 5K run around a local lake. I was excited to start the year off this way. It was cold this morning, -5C and I'm not sure if it was not being used to the cold or having the flu over Christmas but 5 min... Read more

I was all excited to come on and blog that I just booked my trip to Disneyland for May and then I happen to notice my anniversary date. I started trying to lose weight 6 years ago. Quickly my smile dissipated, I've been at this for 6 years, h... Read more

I had great plans for today, get the house cleaned, go for a short run and then hit the rockwall. I was excited for today, just me. Then I woke up. Snow? Again? Weird! I had a great Christmas, so fortunate to have all of our family aroun... Read more

My oldest grand kids spent the night. We had a great time walking last night looking at all the lights in the neighbourhood, I love looking at the world through kids eyes. When we got home I made them hot chocolate, turned on the fire (ya, th... Read more
Because I don't diet

We all have that word that we can't stand the sound of, for me it's that work diet. It conjures up so many images, none of them positive in my mind. I flash back to my mom who spent her entire adult life bouncing from one fad diet to another ... Read more

It was cold but at least it didn't rain! The 5K was a lot of fun today, running with the family really made it different. My son, daughter and her MIL all announced before the race they would be walking and they were ok with that. I said... Read more

Yesterday as we walked the twins my daughter offered me a sweater she knew I liked and didn't want any more. I laughed about the sweater, we had flipped a coin to decide which one of us would buy it. She really likes that we can shop in the s... Read more

YAY!!! Says the woman who telecommutes and doesn't have to drive in it. Funny, wasn't the same reaction when I called my husband at work to let him know. Weird right? This changes things a bit, if it doesn't stop snowing I won't dr... Read more

With my busy season wrapped up it feels great to have my time back in the day for getting exercise in. The shorter days and longer work days meant no hiking after work for the past several weeks, I really missed them. Today I did my run... Read more
Cleaned out old habits
Tuesday, December 15, 2015      10 comments

I took the time last night to clean out my "favourites" list in my nutrition tracker. It's been 2 years since I used it and I'm slightly embarrassed to what was on my list but very happy that's not how I eat any more. My old list was filled w... Read more

One of the things I love about rock climbing is how fast you see improvement. Each time I go I can get bit higher and started looking at the more challenging climbs. I've been trying to get the the top of the first one with a slight inversio... Read more

With the change at WW I went into full panic, amazing how quickly disruptions to our routine can do that but by the end of the day I was fine and decided to consider all the good advice I was given. I could stick to the old program and do it ... Read more
Oh crud, now what

We're all children of habit, when we find something that works for us we stick with it and need routine. Unfortunately businesses cant follow the same path and need to change in order to survive and attract new customers. WW changed. Ugh. ... Read more
Sometimes it's not just about me

I've watched my husband the last few days and I've seen him eat a second helping of foods he should have avoided. I've watched him have a dish of ice cream and sitting on the sofa instead of getting some exercise in and I've watched him sneak... Read more
