A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post called The New Before. I was full of energy and optimism. I had big goals and a solid plan on how I was going to achieve them. Some of my goals- I wanted to run a sub-30minute 5k at Osgoode’s The Goode Run and I wanted … 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 love working out. I really do. It wasn’t always like that but now I just love it! I love going to my class so much, that sometimes I forget the value of rest. I’m in a real groove lately with my class. I feel so free and alive during my workout (even though this … Continue reading
Shake It Off
I had the WORST week last week. It was amazing how each day got worse and worse as the week went on all climaxing with Friday night and realizing I had a Urinary Track Infection- cherry on my sundae! Amazing! I learned a valuable lesson last week- it’s tough to write a “Happy Blog” when … Continue reading
I went to the gym last night- it was PACKED! Now you want me to complain about it. You want me to make that snide remark- “give it a month and all the “Resolutioners” will quit and I’ll have the gym to myself again… ” Nope. Not going to do it. You know why? Because … Continue reading
Nifty at 50!

I started writing only because my husband was so sick of me talking about my ideas about exercise, food, my journey, my progress…. I started writing here as a … 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
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. Frozen treats, smoothies and salads are pushed off the menu in favour for anything warm! It’s not … 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 Love Kale Forever
Before February 2014, I had never tasted kale. I never even considered eating kale. Now I’m kale’s biggest fan! I easily eat a kale salad 5 days a week. Things I love about Kale Salad (in no particular order) -it keeps for several days in the fridge (unlike a lettuce salad) -it’s a super food; … Continue reading
