Well the kids got their wish and received an early school closure at noon due to the snow. :) Civil offices closed at 3pm so I took an hour STAT time to head back to Montague with Roy. We spent the evening relaxing in the warm house, watching the new... Continue reading

The kids are hoping for a storm day tomorrow. Anyone care to take a guess as to whether or not that will happen? I know there were a lot of people buying storm chips when we went to the SuperStore this evening lol. A friend posted this pic in the... Continue reading

Roy and I have been saying for a while that we wanted to try our hand at making Greek yogurt in the Instant Pot. It seemed like a lot of steps but Roy decided to tackle it yesterday. My contribution to the entire process was picking up the whole milk... Continue reading

In my last post I shared a family story because I felt it was special and wanted to share it with everyone. I was nervous to post it because I know not everyone shares my beliefs and that’s ok. Little did I know that 2 hours after sharing my post,... Continue reading

Tonight I’m going to share a personal event that I know not everyone will agree with. I know there are friends and family on my Facebook who aren’t religious so I’m not trying to convince anyone they should believe what I do or anything like that. My husband isn’t religious... Continue reading

Yesterday my amazing husband Roy turned the big 50! Despite promising him I wouldn't make a big deal out of it, I made a point of telling everyone at work to tease him. :). He still loves me though lol. “Your day is coming”. Although my day is much further... Continue reading

My replacement Polar heart rate strap arrived on Friday. The one I had for my m400 died and without it I’ve been seriously flying in the dark trying to guess how many calories I’ve been burning. Now that I have it I’ve been focusing on reaching my target calorie burn... Continue reading

The clocks went back an hour last night. Ordinarily that throws me off a little bit but what made it extra fun today is that we had a windstorm last night which knocked our power out at midnight. It didn’t come back on until after lunch today. It was kinda... Continue reading

Today was a busy day. I woke up way too early and decided to start the day off with a workout before heading to town to get Maisie groomed. Day 3 of the Mental Wellness Challenge was to walk outdoors but given the weather I figure the workout at home... Continue reading

Happy Friday everyone! I’m late getting this post done because I’ve been busy knitting up a storm. The weather forecast for PEI this weekend is heavy rain with strong winds so nothing better than spending a weekend relaxing in pajamas, watching movies and knitting :) This is my first attempt...

The house is full of candy and chips after all 3 kids went trick or treating last night. I’m proud to say I only ate *1* small Reese’s cup today. I put what we had leftover in the freezer so it can be a once in a while treat and... Continue reading

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Roy and I took the day off work so we could decorate and get things ready around the house. We also picked up some last minute candy to make sure we didn’t run out. This is the first time in years that we... Continue reading

I don't remember placing this book on hold through the Libby app but it showed up on my bookshelf last night. I’m only a few chapters in but I’m enjoying it. It’s not a Keto book or a low carb / no carb book. It’s explaining right now how we’ve... Continue reading

Missing my Mom today on what would be her 66th birthday. I know she’s watching over us and would be super proud of her grandkids. Every time Jonathan smiles or gives me spunk I can see Mom in him. I firmly believe that we’ll all be together again one day.... Continue reading

For the life of me I couldn't get to sleep last night. I think it was 2am before my brain finally shut off and I fell asleep. Needless to say, I didn't get out of bed until after 10am this morning. Too much sugar in the apple crisp last night?... Continue reading

Poor Allison woke up this morning feeling worse with ear pain so we went to emerg at KCMH shortly before 8am. We were the first ones there so we were quickly registered, triaged and got to see the doctor. He diagnosed her with a bad ear infection and gave a... Continue reading

I'm so glad Friday is finally here and we have the weekend off. Everyone in the house is tired and ready for some relaxation. We had a delicious family supper of homemade pizza that Roy made last night and brownies for dessert. :) The weather forecast for this weekend is... Continue reading

First week back to teaching POUND two days in a row and I’m totally feeling it tonight. My legs were like jelly tonight. I know I’ll build up my strength and stamina with continued practice but boy oh boy is it hard right now! I can’t even begin to imagine... Continue reading

Largest POUND class to date tonight and I loved every minute of it :) Well except for the first 5 minutes where I was nervous LOL. I'll confess, I get nervous before every POUND class I teach. It doesn't matter how many times I've done it, I sweat and worry... Continue reading

Although I'm sure these aren't the healthiest thing I could be snacking on as far as providing nutritional value - I enjoy snacking on these Crispy Minis from time to time when watching Netflix in the evening. They come in different flavors but so far my favorite is the Sour... Continue reading

Tonight I got home from work and did a quick change into my workout clothes to attend Flex class at the gym. If you haven't taken a Flex class before it's pretty similar to Body Pump. :) I've been practicing at home and I'm proud to say that tonight I... Continue reading

I'm feeling much better today and did a great workout this morning. 10 minute hills on the treadmill to warm up followed by 35 minutes of Flex practice. Felt great. :) I wish I could tell my exact calorie burn but the chest strap for my Polar m400 died and... Continue reading

I came home from work Thursday with the worst headache I've had in a while. The pain was all along the left side of my head going all around my left eye. I came home and took Advil but it wasn't touching the pain. We lost power for a couple... Continue reading
