Feeling good about yourself: Priceless

Saturday, February 01, 2014      7 comments

I feel amazing. It helps that most things in my life are going really well right now - it makes it easier to stay on plan when I'm happy. It's nice to have no reason to resort to emotional eating. It's great to see success on the scale (and i... Read more

Fat-shaming, fit-shaming and shame-shaming

Thursday, January 30, 2014      9 comments

One day back in October, an image ended up in my Facebook news feed. On the surface, it was simply another piece of fitspiration - something I remain on the fence about. The picture was of a beautiful, fit woman surrounded by her three young c... Read more

Hooray for success!

Wednesday, January 29, 2014      5 comments

Back in my last post, I talked about things I was doing right and things I was doing wrong. And I said I was starting the next day improving those things I wasn't doing well. That was in October. For the record, I'm pretty happy with what... Read more

Things I do right

Monday, October 21, 2013      6 comments

I've been slacking lately and feeling quite badly about it. I haven't even been logging on to SP (great new homepage btw). I had goals to accomplish by Nov 1 and I haven't met a single one of them and last night I had one of my "OMG I SUCK... Read more

Why yes, I'll take fitbit, thank you!

Thursday, September 26, 2013      8 comments

I work in a ridiculously healthy office. Yoga is offered 2x a week, bootcamp 2x a week and both classes are full with waiting lists. 3/5 people on my team are ridiculously active - whether it's running regularly or playing team sports. Er... Read more

My morning weigh in

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      4 comments

I've got to tell you, I was pretty excited about my morning weigh in today. It's not that I've been eating exceptionally well. Or exercising as much as I'd like, but I had a good weigh in. I felt like I was finally down and I'd be able to upd... Read more

Nothing like a race to get me motivated.

Friday, September 20, 2013      3 comments

Signed up for another one. Yeah, I know. I spent the day trying to figure out if my goal should be distance or time for the next few months. Then I found the Hal Higdon Intermediate 5K plan. I'll be doing distance to increase my 5K time. So... Read more

How to be happy (and healthy)

Urban Venus 5k

Sunday, September 15, 2013      3 comments

My 5k was this morning. And I have to say that if you're in the Calgary area next September, you might want to consider running in this event. It benefits the Spark Science Center in Calgary - which I've never been to, but I hear good things a... Read more

That was a good run.

Friday, September 13, 2013      8 comments

Last night I went to the gym and I got on the treadmill. I didn't have a plan, really. I was still debating whether I'd do intervals or just try to do the whole 5k when I started the treadmill. Five minutes in, I decided to give an interv... Read more

I think I need to stop setting goals.

Thursday, September 12, 2013      6 comments

I can coast along at this fairly well without setting anything specific. But as soon as I write something down, everything goes to hell in a handbasket. I started out pulling a muscle in my back at the gym. It's mostly recovered, but I ca... Read more

Find your own Beautiful.

A runner on a FB running page posted pictures of herself post run. She commented on how she felt, how she felt she looked and then said, "Find your own beautiful." An... Read more

It's a good Saturday.

Saturday, September 07, 2013      2 comments

It's a rainy weekend here and this morning, the rain is coming down in buckets. The last thing I wanted to do was get out of bed, really. Especially since getting out of bed was supposed to be followed by going to the gym. You see, I tend... Read more

Friday - week review

Friday, September 06, 2013      3 comments

So, I know, I just reset my goals for September all of 3 days ago - aren't long weekends great? But I should probably get into the habit of actually looking at my goals through the month. You know, to make sure I don't get too far out of line.... Read more
