Keeping that fitness train rolling

As promised, Thursday, I went back to the gym with trainer Britt. Honestly, mornings are my favourite time to work out, made all the better by having such an amazing workout partner and motivator! I love starting my day off with a great sweat sesh, and catching up with an amazing friend. It just sets […]

Training; old legs and new

Ok, my fellow fitness freaks. I am FINALLY getting back into some semblance of a routine! Last week, I managed to hit the gym with trainer Britt! It. Felt. Wonderful!!!!! We did a new routine, so it was all fresh and interesting and challenging. It felt so great to be moving my body again, trying […]

Running out the Anxiety and the Nike Run Club App

One of the major reasons I got into activities in the first place was my anxiety. I wanted to find somewhere to put all that nervous energy I generated. Wanted to find something to tire myself out sufficiently to get even a little sleep at night. I refer to my brain as a hamster on […]

Conditioning and the Daily Grind

This week and last has felt pretty good in the fitness department. I haven’t gotten a whole lot of runs in, but strength training and fun fitness activities have been prevalent. As you can see, last week I did something active every day. I try to spread out the different types of activities, so that […]

Foam Fest 2019 (and Mud Hero Ultra 2019)

Hello my fellow fitness freaks! I know it’s been a few days since I posted, but I wanted to have some pics for when I did. So now I have pics in hand and am ready to type! On Saturday, THE HOTTEST DAY of 2019 so far, some friends and I “competed” in the 5Km […]

This one’s for the ladies – gentlemen, you’ve been warned

Last night was a beautiful night for a game of ultimate. Sun was shining, bit of a breeze, perfect. Couldn’t have asked for better. I got my sprints in while having fun with my friends. Ideal. But, I’d like to switch tracks for a moment and talk about something specifically for the ladies: Periods. Ugh, […]

The grind; solo edition

Ok, so I know I have talked a great deal about finding the right gym buddy. This morning, I proved that to myself yet again! Today was a regularly scheduled gym session with Trainer Britt. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she had to cancel on me (hey, I’m not a paying client, I’m the guinea pig […]

Feeling the heat

Today, it is a balmy 31 degrees celsius out, with humidity through the roof. So what do I decide to do? Cram 2 workouts into my day! Yup, I’m crazy like that. At lunch, I did that 10 move booty blaster workout I talked about previously (read that post here). My work gym is not […]

Early morning grind and workout tracking

This morning was an extra early workout, but a great one nonetheless. Honestly, I cannot recommend working out with a great partner highly enough. I’m not sure I would have made it to the gym at all, especially that early (which was the only time it worked!) had I not been meeting Trainer Britt. And […]

Small Victories, Big wins

Yesterday, I enjoyed a lovely and relaxing day at a cottage. I ate what I wanted (Tim Hortons breakfast followed by bacon wrapped chicken rounds and veggies cooked up on the BBQ) and drank what I wanted (coffee then vodka sodas) ALL DAY LONG. It was GLORIOUS. And I repeat? NO GUILT! Everything in moderation! […]
