Big Strides in Little Time
Friday, January 20, 2017      1 comments

I know that this journey is all about making little changes that will last in the long run. It's about incorporating things in a fashion that make them easy to adapt to. Some of it has been relatively easy, some not so much. I joined th... Read more
Back to Nature
Friday, December 02, 2016      2 comments

I decided to take full advantage of this beautiful, early December weather. Who would have thought that there would be no snow, thunderstorms and light, warm rain at this time of year in Canada? I am exceptionally lucky to live near severa... Read more
4% Of My Day
Thursday, November 17, 2016      2 comments

"An hour of exercise is only 4% of my day". It's a mantra that I have to use to remind myself that that amount of time is really small in the larger scope of thing and that I'm worth that. It's trying to encourage myself to keep going whe... Read more
Starting Anew!
Thursday, November 10, 2016      7 comments

Well, there are lots of changes happening in my life. Hopefully they're all for the good. It's funny to say that the breakdown of a marriage is a good thing, but in this case it is. Without the constant emotional roller coaster, I'm able to f... Read more

"No Mistakes, Just Happy Accidents"
Tuesday, August 04, 2015      0 comments

Tonight, I'm taking a line from the book of Bob Ross. Not painting, but in my wanders. I told my husband I was going to go for a quick walk & I'd be back in about 20 minutes. I have my routes mapped out. Generally, I go by the length of time... Read more
Defining Snacking
Monday, August 03, 2015      1 comments

Snacking. It's got such a bad rep. I caught myself snacking as I was preparing dinner this evening and lunches for the next couple of day. My first thought was that I'd have to remember log that. Then, I had to laugh at myself. A handful of... Read more
Starting again
Saturday, August 01, 2015      1 comments

Well, it's been over a year since I checked in. It's time to start again. Procrastination is not my friend! I just have to get back to reminding myself that working out takes only 4% of my day. It's time to stop just thinking about it and g... Read more
-25C? And your point is?
Monday, February 17, 2014      1 comments

I decided that since it's not a work day, instead of doing my regular inside pre-work workout I'd take advantage of the time off. Meaning, I was going to get to use my trekking poles. My husband was quite dismayed that I would purposely set ou... Read more
Fell off the wagon ...
Saturday, November 30, 2013      3 comments

So, I got a little behind in my efforts. I didn't realize that I really was somewhat stressed out by recent events. I think that the original adrenalin rush kind of blocked out the stress. It's possible that the fact that in 'laugh or cry' si... Read more
Vanna White, I am not!
Sunday, November 17, 2013      1 comments

I volunteered to help out at a charity art auction last night. I thought from the various e-mails and phone calls that I'd had with organizers that I would be doing something relatively innocuous, you know ... coat check, ticket sales, that typ... Read more
Autumn at the Wetlands
Sunday, November 03, 2013      2 comments

I love living near wetlands. Each season gives you something different to see. I could spend hours hiking. Another great thing about it is, it doesn't feel like exercise. I grab my camera and follow the trails (sometimes wandering off the tr... Read more
Halloween Continues...
Friday, November 01, 2013      2 comments

Day 2 of goodies at work. Yesterday, our boss bought us pizza. We had cake there, too. Today, one of the company that we deal with bought our whole staff lunch - pasta, garlic bread, salad, drinks. Someone brought in cupcakes. Customers dro... Read more

Happy Halloween! emoticon I hope that we were all able to make it through this sugar-filled holiday witho... Read more
Woohoo!
Thursday, October 24, 2013      1 comments

Well, I only started on this site a few short weeks ago, but I've learned lots already. I'd started some smaller attempts at beginning my journey to better living, but needed something more to really get my motivated & moving. When I star... Read more
