Life at 250
Tuesday, September 03, 2019      10 comments

My goal this month is a small one, get back below 250. I have an extreme trail race this month, lots of training, meal planning done for the week and a healthy attitude. I can do this. 250 is an important mental milestone for me. That s... Read more
No, not this time

Every year in August my thyroid flips out and I retain water that would make a camel jealous. Up 15 pounds in 2 days and then just to be on the safe side my body added on another 5 for good measure. The last three years when this happened I trie... Read more

Last week it occurred to me that in a little over a month I had a 12K trail race. Had I completely forgotten I registered? Yes. Have I been diligently training to run an extreme race? HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! At the start of the we... Read more
Challenges - the good ones
Monday, August 19, 2019      9 comments

This summer I took on a couple of challenges, I wanted to push myself and not let business get in the way of my goals. I almost succeeded, almost. I loved the 5% challenge but Saturday's are such a busy work day that I struggled to remember t... Read more

Life has started to settle down and I'm feeling more like myself. I needed to push myself back to where I wanted to be and not let the past devour my future. I have a favourite thinking spot and decided to head out there. The hike itself i... Read more
Getting back to me
Wednesday, August 07, 2019      10 comments

Last month finally got to me and all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and give up. On the bright side the TIA I had last month wasn't. That really did make me happy, after a ridiculous amount of tests the Neurologist confirmed that it was... Read more
Walk and talk

Last night after dinner my husband and I went down to the river to talk. We were pleasantly surprised to find it empty, no fishermen, no kids playing we had the little cove all to ourselves. Nothing but the sound of the creek running into the... Read more

Since our move my husband has been struggling with emotions. We made a huge lifestyle change which I am so happy about but for reasons he can't explain my husband is lost. He keeps looking for things to stress about. We removed financial stre... Read more

Yesterday morning I wasn't feeling well, really off. After having a couple of really strong days of working out the best way to describe it was I felt weak, which is weird and not something I normally experience. I took a photo of myself to s... Read more
Morning run
Tuesday, July 16, 2019      13 comments

Morning runs always sound like a great idea at 2AM. "I'm going to get up in 2 hours and go for a run!" I said that yesterday but when 4AM came I grabbed the duvet, pulled it up to my neck, turned up the fan and decided that 2AM Tam... Read more
Day five, divide and conquer
Thursday, July 11, 2019      9 comments

Day 5 of invasion of the grandchildren. We've accepted the new villagers into our home. Unaccustomed to their odd rituals and chaotic behaviour we took time to adjust to the new world. Mess, spills, noise, crying (mine mostly), whining and... Read more
10 KM in and rebuilding my run
Wednesday, July 10, 2019      10 comments

I started my 160 KM challenge a few days ago and it's off to a slow start. It's been over a year since I was a dedicated runner, I let life just get in the way. There were a ton of excuses but all of them pretty weak, even if I pile them on t... Read more

Summers are always crazy and this year we've added a couple of new levels of craziness. The cookie business continues to grow and this year I decided to make a big step. We've moved from mainly doing farmers markets to focusing on festivals. ... Read more
Biking and canoeing and running oh my

Last week I took a few days off from running to let my tendons heal but I didn't want to stop so I looked for different options for exercise. I focused on strength training but still got some fun cardio in. First came at a spur of the moment ... Read more
I will succeed

The other evening I went in search of a trail I had heard of but never quite could find. Turns out since our move it's 2KM up the road from me so I headed out for a run. The trail started out rather boring, a gravel path more of a walking pat... Read more
