10K competed!

As we are getting closer to the ScotiaBank Bluenose Marathon my nerves are kicking in. We have been running twice a week, attending 360 fit bootcamps and TAYS yoga classes to help make our bodies and minds strong but not having run that distance yet plays with your self confidence. My friend and fellow Myles […]

Old Sole

I actually began writing this blog last week, but true to the story, life kind of happened in between… Last week I was feeling a bit weary. I certainly wouldn’t say unmotivated, run down maybe? Sometimes so much is going on behind the scenes, that it’s hard to know what to show on the surface. […]

I’ve been beating myself up the past little bit and feeling like I’ve let myself and those who care about me down. I had goals set and fully expected to have reached my 100lb weight loss by now but this past year has been a rough one for me with a lot of life changes; the […]

Feeling Deflated

I’ve been having a rough time lately keeping training and life in general together. I have been feeling completely deflated. Like nothing in life was going right. Last week was particularly rough. Work has been unbelievably stressful lately. We are undergoing a transformation which will result in my office closing within the next year. This means I […]
