My Toolkit to Happiness

Hi! Welcome to my page... my "home" for the past 4 years... my tool to track my progress and reaching my goals!

I am a runner and I practice yoga... I enjoy going for walks; I have fun finding and trying new recipes; I love to travel and discover new things. I am in the Army (officer) and I am committed to be a positive influence to the people around me - especially my 2 daughters - Emma and Maggie.

My action PLAN...
Motivation: I am doing this for myself ...
Hi! Welcome to my page... my "home" for the past 4 years... my tool to track my progress and reaching my goals!

I am a runner and I practice yoga... I enjoy going for walks; I have fun finding and trying new recipes; I love to travel and discover new things. I am in the Army (officer) and I am committed to be a positive influence to the people around me - especially my 2 daughters - Emma and Maggie.

My action PLAN...
Motivation: I am doing this for myself first... The reward is feeling good about myself, sense of accomplishment and a positive attitude.

Goal Settings: I set short term and long term goals -rivised periodically! Small steps... I can do this! No more excuses.

Stress: Get out there and work out, it will make me feel better - I keep a personal journal for whenever I need to get the negative emotions out and I BLOG to reflect on the POSITIVE.

Sleep: Getting a good night of sleep is my challenge

Eating: this is not an issue! Really? Eating the right things to keep you going is different and avoiding emotional eating can be a challenge...

Imagery: Focus on the positive, picture myself doing it and remember how it was the last time I did: learn from my mistake.

10 years ago, I could not run 5km. A few changes later and committing to my goals with Spark, I fell much better, positive and proud of my successes. In 10 years, I don't want to have any regrets so I give my best everyday!

My personal challenge:
GO the Distance! 2013= more than 2200km... repeat in 2014

Running and events:
2013:
Feb - 10km Winterlude - in the snow! (Done - 46min) ; Relay for Life (Done!!! Raised 2225$ and did 65K in 12 hours) ; CF Running Championships 10K(May - PB 44.54) ; Army Run 13.1 (Sept, 1h39)

I conquered a MARATHON!!! Niagara Falls (Oct 2013, 3h36)... I qualified for the Canadian Forces National Championship (May 2014) and Boston 2015!

2014:
May - Ottawa Marathon and Canadian Forces running Championship - 3h35m45s, 130/2605 Female, 29/130 F40-44; June - Relay for Life

Hello there! Training for Boston! how exciting! I'm running a 12K this Sunday. First running of mileage over 4 miles since the marathon in May and it has been a great motivator. Hoping to carry it through and get my friends/co-workers/running buddies to do a 1/2 marathon in the spring. Think it might be the perfect distance for me.
Have a great holiday season! spark on!
