Way back in April - pretty much the moment we could schedule it after I finished treatment, we went to Vegas. You'll probably remember that I'm a bit of a Vegas addict and we hadn't been for a year. We hadn't been ANYWHERE for a year. (I spen... Read more
I haven't posted much at all in the last year. A year ago at this time, I was in the middle of stampede AND going through all of the diagnostic steps around breast cancer. While training for a half marathon that I never ran.
In late Jul... Read more

That link goes to a post I wrote three years ago. It's when I first decided to actually follow through on a vague goal and run a half mar... Read more
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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
A friend linked this on Facebook yesterday and I thought it was really interesting.

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
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 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
