So, I can tell my attitude has shifted. I tracked all my food once I ate it, and am in range for everything today. I hiked up Mount Boucherie by myself this morning - 1.5 hours, it was 4C out, so a big difference from the 25C that was in Calif... Read more
No more excuses!!
The past several years have been an emotional roller coaster ride from heck. I've had brief moments of clarity, where I get back on the horse, and manage to workout and eat well, but without fail, I fall back into the depression that makes it r... Read more
Sooo, I was so excited to walk a marathon with my girlfriend who finally got her leg issues dealt with. She had to back out, but I wanted to continue for me. Today I found out that we were the only two marathon walkers, now I am doing it by my... Read more
Pretty excited about life right now:-)
Interesting how a goal changes things:-) I have been great at getting my workouts in since registering to walk the marathon. Now my walks just get done because I do NOT want to try to go 6+ hours on my feet without doing the prep work. So pro... Read more
So, since registering to walk the marathon, my attitude and outlook has gone WAY up. My kidlets are super stoked to have their "Mom" back, and I am feeling a lot of hope and anticipation. After my 40+ miles last week, today was supposed to be ... Read more
Funny how things happen for a reason!
When we were down in Richmond for Ringette camp, my sis and I walked a bunch every day. After we got back, I did basically nothing for several days, then decided to start hiking...did a bunch of 2+ h... Read more
I couldn't figure out why I felt meh today. Figured out what I wanted to do for a workout, then basically sat on my butt the entire day. Before I would have given myself some really bad self-messages. But today I knew it as different. My dea... Read more
Really, what I have done has helped??
Yesterday I did a long walk in the middle of the day - it was great to give me time to think. Monkey was going to come with me, until I told him that it would be longish, and his legs may be sore when he started baseball camp. Yeah, he said no... Read more
Is this really me?
After my amazing workout yesterday, I was so motivated to keep it going. I have so many times over the past years started and stopped working out because of depression and lack of motivation...so this was a HUGE move forward! So today I got up... Read more
What an awesome day!!!
So Josh and I got home yesterday after him spending 2.5 weeks on Vancouver Island. We just chilled and didn't do anything for the rest of the day. Slept in today, and managed to find my motivation while I did it.
Today I did a super fun w... Read more
Have to figure out moods
So Missy slept over at her girlfriends last night, and I stayed up WAYYYYYY too late, which meant I slept in WAYYYYYY to long. I still can't figure out how to make myself just have motivation....it seems like a big battle everyday. I know a lo... Read more
Plan for the day was to walk with Missy in the morning, and then do a rrwalk in the evening. Didn't quite work-out the way I wanted...Missy did not want to go for a walk, and my belly was having issues this morning anyhow. So, I hea... Read more
Thursday wasn't a great day for me...I ate ok, but didn't exercise much at all, a bunch of drama with people that need to find a way to not meddle in others lives. Friday was much better, I ate pretty well, and did a 65 min dreadmill workout - ... Read more

Blip in the road, but proud that I busted through it.
After my successes last week getting back into running, I managed to not continue - found excuses. I did keep eating better, and did a ton of house cleaning and purging, but didn't continue running. I was so upset with myself. Then I stopped.... Read more
