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

I Have the Secret Cure for Lack of Motivation!
No drive. No get up and go. Lack of motivation. No mojo! That’s been me for the last three weeks! Me! I know! Weird eh? I have been forcing myself to go to the gym. When I was sick last week, I was all too happy to stay home. This was totally un chartered territory … Continue reading
I had a major life style change in February and since then I have struggled to put into words how I feel now. I feel so different now. I follow a Clean eating approach to my diet and I exercise pretty much everyday. This new life style obviously has changed my physical appearance- quite dramatically … Continue reading
Kale Salad is Dead to Me!
Well at least until Spring! I don’t know about you but I’m a “fair weather” salad eater. I am notoriously always cold and I think this causes me to have an aversion to cold foods during cold weather.

Well, I’m about to do it since my teaching contract just got extended for the entire school year. I’m feeling confident about it all because of push-ups. Push-ups. I … 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
I have always loved Thanksgiving. Fall is by far my FAVOURITE season. I love the fashion, the weather, the colours, the food. By October, I’m tired of flip flops and bbq and crave boots and roasted anything. I love fall walks through the woods with my dog, admiring the amazing colour show Mother Nature puts … Continue reading
Smile and Say Thanks
“Wow! You have lost so much weight!” “Ya, well, still have some to go…” “Look at the definition in your arms!” “I have no life and come to the gym way too much.” Have you ever deflected a compliment- then turned it around and managed to insult yourself? I know I have been guilty of … Continue reading
