20101006IMG_4396

Aside from the relentless cloud cover and rain we’ve been hit with lately, the temperatures have been fairly warm for November! I’ve been getting outside for runs this week, trying to soak up every last degree of warmth. Yesterday, I had a great run that I like to call the “5-mile pick-up run”. With each […]

Good afternoon! I thought I’d give a little update on how my Workout Log Challenge is going so far.  I mentioned last week that I was struggling with motivation and this log seems to be renewing my enthusiasm for exercise. I don’t plan on doing it forever, but for right now it’s giving me the […]

The Workout Log Challenge

[source] Brrrr…it’s cold out there today! This is the time of the year when I really start to notice the waning daylight hours and struggle with motivation when it comes to workouts. The early mornings are no longer bright and sunny, but dark, chilly, and uninviting. I’ve always preferred to workout in the morning, but […]

7 Workouts I’m Loving This Summer

Spinning

This past Spring, I challenged myself to include more variety in my workouts. After a long Winter, I found myself in a workout rut and I knew I needed to mix things up. In May, I fell in love with Hot Yoga and it renewed my enthusiasm for trying new forms of exercise. Since then, […]

Speedy Running Strategies & Summer Running Goals

Back in the day, I used to be into all that crazy track and field stuff. High jump, shot put, long jump, relay, and sprints. Short distance sprints were always my favourite event. I loved the intense, breathless pace and the thrill of not knowing who would cross the finish line first. Sometimes I won, […]

Good morning to you! On Tuesday night, I made Kath’s Know Your Roots Salad which features golden beets, wheatberries, sunflower seeds, beet greens, and sweet potato. Eric and I both went crazy over it. Golden beets are one of my favourite vegetables! If you have not tried them I highly encourage you too. They are […]

For whatever reason, Mother Nature has given Southern Ontario (and places nearby) a very wet Spring!  Are you in one of those rainy areas too?     My umbrella gets lots of use lately. ;) We’ve had steady rain for the past 5 days and there is more rain due for 3 out of 5 […]

The Day I Tried Moksha Hot Yoga

IMG_5606

We entered the Moksha room and the heat smacked me in the face. 37 Celsius is hotter than I expected it to be. This is HOT yoga, not warm yoga, I reminded myself. Then again we’re just coming out of a long Canadian Winter and I haven’t felt the heat in months, so it’s relative. […]

As my mom always says, Good things come to those who wait! Because Eric was such a good sport about my April Fool’s Prank, I made him a batch of The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (with CHOCOLATE chips!) on Saturday. He claimed that he is ‘bringing every single cookie to work’ and he ‘just might […]
