A few weeks ago, I started a new exercise plan. I was motivated. I was focused. I was 100% dedicated to seeing it through. And then my world kind of imploded. My husband’s accident and becoming a full-time student once more came in the same week. I could have handled maintaining my exercise plan and … [Read more…]

The new calendar for writing assignments came out last week. I saw that my first post was on October 6 and it said Saturday Review. I immediately knew what I would do. I had received a new FitBit to replace my old one that had broken. Somehow, somewhere, it was just gone one day. I reached in my … [Read more…]

Last month, I tackled the issue of whether or not I have “off-limit” … [Read more…]

This is my favourite time of year. The kids are back in school, I’m back in school. There’s a nip to the morning air that whispers of the promise of autumn just around the corner.

As I type this, my kids are in bed. This is probably the first time in two months they have been down before 10. You know what that means… SCHOOL IS STARTING! With school comes a ROUTINE. With a routine comes EXERCISE. I am sooooo looking forward to getting my groove back. Granted, I’m not really … [Read more…]

Well my friends, if it is Tuesday, it must be time for some bragging. Tooting, if you will. Did you exercise like a maniac? Did you do a race of some kind and kick butt?

  This is a tale of two people. One has this on her mind: She thinks often of her quest for fitness. She has learned the importance and value of exercise for both her health and her sanity. She fits workouts into a busy schedule. She moves. She breathes. She feels good about her … [Read more…]

I’m here to talk about eye candy, specifically eye candy at the gym.  You see, most of the time when I exercise a the gym, it’s during prime-time mommy time.  Meaning, a morning week day between the hours of 8:30am and 11am.  The older kids have been dropped off at … [Read more…]

The last 18 months have been the most stressful time of my entire 40 years of life, even MORE stressful than when my husband was laid off from work for 7 months and we had a 5 yr old, 2.5 yr old and a 6 week old. The last 18 months have held a death in the family, the husband changing jobs and … [Read more…]
