I have been trying for a year, sort of, in theory. But I really wanted it, sort of, in theory. I wanted to eat healthier, sort of, in theory. Ok, I wanted to wake up, have the 40 pounds I had regained gone and be able to run a half m... Read more

This week I started bootcamp/kick boxing classes. I was a little nervous about going, been so long since I've taken any classes. It took only a couple of minutes before I felt back in my element and was glad I signed up. I tried a kick boxing... Read more

Tomorrow morning I restart my 6AM bootcamp classes. I used to really enjoy these but I'm still nervous about restarting for a couple of reasons. Last time I was doing these I was 30 pounds lighter and had much better stamina. The gym ... Read more

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

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

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
