New Season, New Schedule
My rec hockey league starts tonight. Time to go and meet our randomly selected (but balanced by ability) team, pick out jerseys (and get our numbers... I want my jersey from last year again!) and see what the team dynamics hold. Who will want to... Read more
Ferol, my "other mother"
You know that person who impacts your life, and you don't necessarily get it at the time? Your best friend's mother who treats you as if you were their kid too? For me, at the time when I most needed such an "other mother", that was Ferol.

Before & After pic - my house
I went out for my long run yesterday, and didn't recognize my house when I got home! My sweetie painted the front door and garage door. What a difference a coat of paint makes on the overall appearance of the house!
Just like we can build upon our successes in an upward spiral, it seems to go the other way too. It started last night. Both teams that went to Montreal for the 24-hour relay from our speed skating club are getting together tonight for a BBQ & s... Read more

Investigation: posted to SparkPeople Runner Girls Unite forum, was pointed to a site where I could purchase gaiters.
New problem: gaiters cost $20. ... Read more

Ode to my Grandparents
This is a bit of a mish-mash of information. My paternal grandparents passed on when I was pretty young (10 when my grandfather died, and 14 when my grandmother died), so I have some pretty vague memories of them, and of course, they were very o... Read more
Tiny victory! The Take-out Box
After our soccer games on Friday nights, we go to our sponsor pub for refuelling. Tonight, I wanted something different, more carb-rich, since we had a hard game and I'm running in the morning. I ordered the pasta special, which came with a Caes... Read more
Book Review: The End of Overeating by Dr. David Kessler
Like so many of us, I know what I need to do - control my portion sizes, snack within limits, make good choices in restaurants, and so on - to control my intake, but I just can't summon the willpower to do it. I have blogged about this recently ... Read more
Thankful to be here! The first year of my lifestyle overhaul! (with pictures)
A year ago, at the start of August 2009, my partner downloaded a food and exercise tracking app for iPhone. It tracks calories taken in and expended through exercise, and tracked achievement of a daily target. I didn't give it much thought.

My Dad, the Olympian
Just a quick note to share how proud of my dad I've always been. He was in the Olympics 3x, and has always been supportive of me in my sporty pursuits. He came to watch my soccer game in Sunday's heat... and he is (a very fit and active) 80 year... Read more
The Free (and seemingly irresistible) Chocolate Croissant
There appears to be a devilish voice, rationalizing bad decisions in my head. This morning, I was in a hotel with a continental breakfast. There was a nice layout, with cut fruit, two yoghurts, granola, pastries, breads for toast, cheeses, bagel... Read more
My best workout buddy
I first met Caesar while visiting my friend's cottage, north of Ottawa, in the Gatineau region of Quebec. He belonged to the people in the cottage next door, but spent all his time with us. He followed us everywhere, sat with us by the fire. Exc... Read more
For the past couple of weeks, as I've been logging more mileage in training for my first half-marathon (!!!), I've noticed that my appetite has been almost insatiable. I don't know if the two are connected or if it's just a phase, but I am reall... Read more
