December 1st is this upcoming Saturday and I want to stay on track until the upcoming Christmas parties.... Continue reading

Tonight I completed another Flex class at the gym with Jeri which was awesome! It was a mad dash to make it to the gym on time but I got there. I was almost the last one to arrive so I had to set my bench up front. Drat! I’m... Continue reading

I'm not going to lie. I snoozed my alarm 3 times this morning and didn't get out of bed until 6:20. I had major bed head all day that even my flat iron couldn't cure. It was just one of those days. Is it just me, or is it harder... Continue reading

I didn't get around to posting anything this weekend because things were very busy. Allison was exhausted after training all day on Saturday for her new job at Tim Hortons so we didn't do the Light Up the Lake Walk in town. We can pick up our medals from 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
