I know the difference between an excavator, a loader and a backhoe. I can spot a construction vehicle anywhere. I can drum “The Mighty Machines” theme song perfectly. I also know (off by heart) the names and drivers of all the major Monster Trucks. I would cheer with my son as Maximum Destruction would beat … Continue reading

The Big Fight
I was in a big fight yesterday. It was with myself. It was during my run. I’m not sure there was a winner. I sort of fell off my P90X wagon about 2 weeks ago. I was loving P90X! I still love P90X! But sometimes, life gets in the way. It was my birthday on … Continue reading
“Normal” Heathy Food
I have eaten some weird things this year. Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever imagined eating a pudding made with chia seeds and liking it; or lentil tacos; or kale salad; or quinoa patties; and so on and so on. I have tried a lot of new and different food since starting … Continue reading
I Spilled Meat on my Vegan Cookbook
I am seriously in love with Angela Liddon’s website (http://ohsheglows.com) and The Oh She Glows Cookbook. As a committed meat eater, I was surprised how great these vegan (no less!) recipes are! Her recipes are creative, flavourful, and she makes veganism really approachable. I really recommend her cookbook! It’s a must have for any clean … Continue reading
I have two full time jobs- I’m an elementary teacher AND I’m a full time wife and Mom. Both jobs are pretty busy! I have found that the week days go much smoother if I spend a little time in the kitchen on the weekends precooking some of our weekday lunches and supper. I want … Continue reading

Amazing! I learned a valuable lesson last week- it’s tough to write a “Happy Blog” when … Continue reading
I am very conscious of the food I eat. I try to eat organic (if it’s not too expensive), a variety of fruits and veggies, only natural sugars, and I read labels (actually I don’t read that many labels since I rarely buy prepackaged food). I am pretty regimented about what goes in my body … Continue reading
Can You Be Too Happy?
Last week I had to bring my dog Boyd to the vet. His tail was glued to his bum and I was assuming that he ate something stupid and was having trouble “passing” it. Boyd is not a picky eater! That dog will eat just about everything and it has gotten him into trouble several … Continue reading
I Survived 6 Weeks of No Drinking!
Back in August I was really concerned about how starting work full time for the first time in 9 yrs was going to affect my life (re. working out and eating clean while staying sane) so I decided to quit drinking. I know! Stupid idea eh? I was thinking that as I was entering probably … Continue reading
