Wednesday, October 09, 2019      1 comments

So, I'm an overly involved parent volunteer at our school. Right now we're focusing on a number of projects like raising funds for playgrounds, looking for speakers for parents on how to raise resilient kids, etc. By far, the most important on... Read more
The Weight of Depression
Wednesday, October 02, 2019      5 comments

Sometimes you're feeling fine and able to get along with your day. Other days, you feel the heavy weight - where your body feels heavy, your eyes are tired, and you snap at everyone around you. Today is one of those days. 3 rainy days in a ro... Read more

So, in my spare time, I'm a Home & School mom. The Ontario version of the PTA, if you will. We've undertaken a huge initiative - fundraising $80,000 for new school playgrounds. Anyone have some fun and interesting ideas that the students can ... Read more

So, over the last 2 years, I have been dealing with some stuff, which puts me at the bottom of my own list. Divorce, 2 moms going through heart & stroke issues, a loved one going through disability and then a crazy accident, a teen with anxiety... Read more

The last 2 months have been riddled with crazy stress. Our preteen daughter is battling depression, our son is angry all the time, my hubby and I have been arguing more, and I'm fat. On top of all of this, hubby's business was audited, which t... Read more

My First Sprint Triathlon
Friday, August 13, 2010      1 comments

Well, I finally got to do a bigger tri. What an event! My sister signed up at the last minute (without bike training). I made a specific goal for myself. Finish within 2 hours 30 minutes, and don't come in last. I finished in 2:04, and ... Read more

Ok, so the triathlon training has to begin at some point. My last blog had good intentions, and I started off well, until I got called in to cover some classes for other instructors. If you know anything about exercise, it's don't overdo ... Read more

Friday, January 29, 2010      2 comments

I know it's ridiculous to hear this from a trainer/fitness instructor, but I really need to rid myself of the last 10 pounds. I know it's all about the treats with me. I don't know how people do it. They stay motivated and push themselves... Read more

Well, it's down to crunch time for the next mini-triathlon. Like all other mothers out there, just trying to get the time to get the training in is the hardest part. Our bootcamp homework for our day off tomorrow is to run 10k. Well, that's 1... Read more
