This month I have hiked over 70KM and trending to end at 96KM which means of course I want to see if I can hit 100. At the start of year I had become so lethargic I logged one .8K walk for an entire month. That was my exercise, less than o... Read more

For my husband's 60th birthday I planned out a hiking vacation in Whistler. Just a couple of hours from home but so much to take in and see that I thought he might enjoy. We did three completely different hikes. Day one was an easier 7K... Read more

Yesterday was my daughter's baby shower. Now normally I'm not a fan of baby showers, let's face it, their not the most exciting event to attend but had a few added pluses, there were people there I hadn't seen in years and I got time with the... Read more

At least that's what the meme said that I came across. I took the day off for me today, lots of people had ideas of what I should do, I did none of it and instead headed out to the trails to push myself on a run. It was finally raining ... Read more

Shortly after having my thyroid surgery (and eating all the foods ever) I got back into running and hiking. I had signed up for a 5K race to get myself back into the game but seeing it had been cancelled I opted to do a virtual race. Now my f... Read more
Yes baby steps lead somewhere
Saturday, July 25, 2020      7 comments

I'm a huge believer in baby steps. Let's face it, it originally got us going so why wouldn't we believe it would lead us somewhere great again? Eight weeks ago I started running again. I set my goal on 5KM a week to start. The first week... Read more

Eating healthy and working out does so much for the brain. It allows us to think so much clearer, it's the best NSV that I constantly celebrate. I've been running again for weeks, started with 5KM a week, broken over 3 runs. (A start is a sta... Read more

I've decided that having my husband on board again is more about watching his accomplishments and less about having someone support me. The guy was 14 pounds when he was born (his poor mother), he's never been small. He was the fat, quiet kid... Read more

Down two pounds this week, which means I'm back under needing to lose 100 to meet goal. That is a horrible, overwhelming thought. Let's change that. Down two pounds this week and I'm feeling awesome about my progress. My husband and I h... Read more

So much running
Saturday, June 06, 2020      10 comments

A few weeks ago I got back into running. I tossed out any thoughts of what my pace USED to be and focused on building up my distance and pacing. I started on easier runs as the trails reopened around me, trying very hard to go at non-peak hou... Read more

Is is still 2020? Where to start, where to start? Like a lot of people, not you of course cause you're doing awesome, I fell into the rabbit hole of eating while being quarantined. I'm pretty sure I ate three weeks of snacks in an... Read more
