See this image larger4 months, I'm happy with this!See this image largerCause sometimes you need to sit on a rock bluff high above the inlet.See this image largerWho climbed this? ME!!! Who's hanging around the house today whimpering? ME!! Worth it, totally worth it. See this image largerCurried fried rice made from cauliflower. With fresh peas, fresh green onion and organic local chicken.

Great way to start the day.See this image largerHas my little helpers join me one day a week. Chasing 2 year old twins....now that's a workout. See this image largerWhen you granddaughters are surrounded by Spartans they see the obstacles everywhere. It also makes trying to build a closet organizer a bit challenging when 2 year olds are insisting that they "swing nana and climb". 😃See this image largerI love the 3K path between my daughters house and mine. It was a beautiful evening to walk over for Thanksgiving dinner. That and the 6k round trip made room for pumpkin pie 😄See this image largerSometimes you just need to get out and make a splash in this world. Even better if you get to get out and do this with 2 year olds.(1 comments)See this image largerJust finished my first 7 mile race.

You win today but you will melt and then I will go to the trails to run.See this image largerThe ice storm has made the trails too dangerous to be out on but I took a walk through the park.

After all the ice storms, fallen trees and wind it was so great to be able to get back to the trails. #10k #halfmarathontrainingSee this image largerEasiest way jump start a Monday is with twin 2 year olds.

There's been a stray bunny in our neighbourhood, guess it wasn't alone. We now have a pet bunny.See this image largerTwo more days till my next 7 mile trail race. AND the rain has been cancelled.

Personally I like the bouncy wiggly jiggly as you go across.See this image largerGetting the veggies ready for the bbq. Cauliflower, mushrooms, peppers and celery. Fresh chives and parsley from the garden. I'll toss in some grape tomatoes just before these are finished grilling. Yum.See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerToday the day belonged to me. I gave myself a day of saying no to everyone and went for a 13km trail run by myself. Just me. It was wonderful.See this image largerBecause some days you just need to take a break from life, climb a mountain, sit on a rock that's over a million years old and appreciate the beauty around you.See this image largerYup my heart is melting into a puddle of goo.See this image largerLooks at to do list...looks at granddaughters. Looks back at list...it will still be there an hour from now.

Take that to do list!See this image largerEvening run around the lake. Great way to end the day.See this image largerThe healthier I get the more I appreciate the beauty around me.

The trail was a tad overgrown in some sections. I sent my husband in first to knock away any spiders.See this image largerAnother 2 pounds down this week. Double chin and jowls gone again. Definitely a challenge to get back on track after regaining 35 pounds but definitely worth the work. Down 70 in total half way to goal.See this image largerA fun, active Canada Day with my daughter and the twins. Ponies, rock climbing, a healthy bbq, long walk and now settling the girls into a movie while we pass time until the fireworks start.

It's raining, it's cold and yet looking at what I'm surrounded by I think this sign in front of me sums it up.

Water, sweat, pant. One more steep hill to go then into the unknownSee this image largerMade it to 3km mark, top of third hill. Really understanding the phrase, "Rest here, tomorrow we reach summit." Turned off my music to take in the complete silence. The next part will be all new to me. Onward hopefully not upward!See this image largerAnyone want to guess what came after hill three? Anyone? Yes, hill four. This one even steeper. Steep enough that stairs and a railing were built into the trail.See this image largerAfter hill four came a beautiful creek tumbling into the lake and I'm surrounded by the sweet smell of wild blackberries.See this image largerFrom one end of this lake to the other only ended up being 8km. It was a nice outing, the hills were definitely challenging. The last part was pretty flat which let me end with a bit of running.See this image largerAnd bonus km!
