It was a beautiful day so Jeff and I headed out for a dinner hike. We chose an 8K one up the mountain behind us and packed a picnic dinner. I was surprised how quiet the trails were considering the weather but it was nice to have it to oursel... Read more

I love that feeling when you wake up in the morning and you are hungry. Not, I'm so hungry I don't think I'm going to make it, is that a white light, grandma, is that you, hungry. The hungry you wake up with that reminds you that you fueled y... Read more

I was so excited about how the week was going, protein is back up to where it should be daily, lots of positive energy, got 2 weddings booked, new weekly markets and then the girls showed up. How does it get better?! Sunshine and my minions! I n... Read more

When I get busy I'm horrible at letting my protein slide. For me this is one of the worst things I can do, letting my proteins slip leads to really dumb choices. This month I've noticed that I've brought back lunch time proteins in my salads ... Read more

The Jeff came home to find me laying on the couch the other day. After 4000 cookies baked and 5 markets over 10 days I had finally hit the wall. "Whatcha doing?" "I found the wall." "You look like I should probably not let you ha... Read more

After a week of focusing on recreating a healthy lifestyle is was great to finish it off with a new hike, even if it was cold and raining. We sloshed through mud puddles and running creeks for 6KM. I tried to convince my husband to run part of i... Read more
Listening to my body

The last couple of days I've worked hard to twist back to my healthy zone. The nice thing is the healthy eating is easy to swing back to, nothing like bribing your body with brightly coloured fruits and vegetables to forgive you for treating ... Read more

The last few weeks have been hard, so many different things to juggle and quite frankly those damn balls were getting really heavy to keep in the air. One by one I felt like I was letting them go and ended up caving. 10 days, no running, no p... Read more

This morning I woke up, repeated my mantra over and over before putting my feet on the floor. Still working on regaining myself and determined to not slink back to old habits. Today is my youngest's birthday or as it is known in our household... Read more

Usually I'm pretty good at handling stress but there are times when it will get to anyone. For the last few weeks I've been watching my daughter stress over her upcoming deposition in the case against the man who hit and killed her fian... Read more

Yesterday the clouds parted for a few hours finally and my husband agreed to come out with me on a 14KM hike. Ok, he agreed to a 12KM, he really needs to learn to expect the unexpected. As we hiked I went ahead a bit because the wind s... Read more

The weather has been pretty dreary lately so my husband and I have made a list of hikes we haven't done yet around us and put them into categories of weather needed to do them. Yesterday we ended up doing a 6K walk along one of the local lake... Read more

The last few weeks I've worked hard to get myself back to where I was. Tonight as I sat eating dinner after going out for a trail run I felt good. I could feel my waist starting to get smaller again. My skin is looking healthier and my mood i... Read more
