Is this a mid life crisis?
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      5 comments

So it's been a bit crazy in my world lately. I was stressed to the max leading up to a very milestone birthday in November (hint - it starts with a "5" and then a "0"). Why do we get so hung up on numbers? Well, I do, it seems. I was n... Read more
A mid-week vacation day is even more fun!

My son's high school starts their year a week earlier than most. This gives the kids a week off in November. It gives the kids a chance to de-stress, and the school said that the drop out and suspension rate has dropped by over 35%! ... Read more
Happy Monday!

And a happy, but sleepy, Monday it is. I had an awesome weekend - my darling daughter came home from school for the weekend (last minute decision as she was able to get a ride back with a friend). She's only been gone for two weeks, but it... Read more

Running to beat the stress
Thursday, September 01, 2011      5 comments

One thing I have found since I started exercising and running - for the first time ever in my life - a few years ago, is that it's a darn good stress reliever. It's hard to hold on to worry or stressful feelings when you are pounding down the ... Read more

What a week that was. I started off with a good Monday - well, as good as a Monday can be. Work - and then off to the gym. Had a pretty good workout - despite some smart bulb there deciding that 5:00 p.m. - when it's the busiest - is gre... Read more
Vacation - Week #1

Week one of vacation has just flown by. Of course, the only rain that we've had here all summer came when I was at my parents' cottage - and was looking forward to some hot, sunny days. Oh well! I kept my daily exercise on track - swimmin... Read more

Well, week one is almost completed for the 5% Summer Challenge. How's it been? I started off strong - pounding through the 30 day shred video and hitting the gym. Then we got hit with heatwave that is enveloping a good part of North A... Read more

My son's last ball hockey game was on Tuesday! Hurray! This was his first year playing in this spring league and it was great for him. He loved it and his team did well. He even won "player of the game" a couple of weeks ago. It was a c... Read more
Hello summer - I am so glad to see you!

Well, this spring definitely did not turn into the turbo turnaround, whip myself into shape time that I had planned. Nope. There were other things in store to make sure that I was challenged and gave my blood pressure medicine a run for it... Read more
A little change makes a big difference

It sure does! I've had a gym membership for about 7 or 8 years now. Not all at the same gym. Of course when times are tighter - that's the first to go. Hence putting on 20 lbs in the past couple of years. ... Read more
I did it!

Yesterday, I took part in the Toronto Sporting Life 10K run (I think that works out to just over 6 miles). This is my third time running in this event: I was unable to run last year because of a knee injury, so I was looking forward to ge... Read more
Ahh, the frustration of it!

So I've been back in the "healthy mode" for a month now. I saw some great results when I first got back into it. The past couple of weeks - between doing the 30 Day Shred/running outside/going to the gym (pick one per day), I have seen a d... Read more

Now I know that the "clunk" we heard this winter was me, falling off the fitness and health wagon - but I really did not realize how far down I had fallen! This Jillian Michaels lady is just kicking my butt. I have been going back to... Read more
