Emotional Eating Fail
Saturday, March 07, 2015      4 comments

I should have blogged earlier. I literally stuffed my emotions today, so I didn't have a good eating day. My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for more than a year with no luck. We have one son, and got pregnant with him the secon... Read more
Busy-ness is a disease
Tuesday, March 03, 2015      1 comments

Hi! I'm Kristen and I have the busy-ness disease. Since grade 7 or 8, I've lead a life so packed full of activities and to-do lists that I actually don't know what to do with myself when I have free time. Oh wait, I know. . . add something more... Read more
Back to work & decluttering musings.
Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

Today went better than expected. The exercise, even in 10min increments, must really be helping as I actually felt like my old self energy-wise before mono. I still took time to rest though, because if there is one thing I've learned, its that... Read more
Stress Eating Triggers
Sunday, February 22, 2015      1 comments

Today has been brought to you by: stress eating. I always thought stress eating was eating too many bad things out of stress, but for me it has been eating until I'm more full than I need to be. Yesterday I stress ate because I felt like... Read more

Jillian Smith where have you been all my post-baby life!?!?
Friday, February 20, 2015      2 comments

Today I discovered Jillian Smith's video's through spark people and went looking on Youtube. These are awesome workouts, especially as I'm so out of shape. I just did 26 minutes and feel pretty good, so tomorrow will be the test as to whether ... Read more
Mono recovery one day at a time
Thursday, February 19, 2015      3 comments

I've been fairly successful this week with doing 10-30min of exercise per day and it feels good! It still feels really weird to do only 15 minutes of exercise and feel the same way for the rest of the day as when I used to do 45-60min, but I'm ... Read more
Tonight's lesson
Sunday, February 15, 2015      1 comments

I've been tracking my food for a couple of days now, and as long as I don't go crazy with my one treat a day I'm not doing all that bad. However, I'm seriously lacking in the protein and fibre department, even when I eat two servings of meat a ... Read more
Starting from ground zero
Saturday, February 14, 2015      1 comments

I've been feeling good physically for the last 2-3 weeks, so I think its safe to say that my mono is over. However, I've been decimated cardio-health-when-exercising-
wise. So far 30 minutes is my absolute max. Tonight I've been reading th... Read more

So I guess I haven't been really on this blog since April. . . where does the time go? Since the last time I blogged a lot has happened. I had the summer off and spent time with my son and prepared myself for the coming teaching year. Usually... Read more
Don't Give Up!
Tuesday, April 22, 2014      3 comments

It's a week before my first piano festival in 12 years and there's a part of me that just so badly wants to give up. With all honesty I feel like I've practiced as much if not more than my life allows and I'm still not good enough. I'm better,... Read more
It's the most busiest time of the year. . .
Sunday, April 06, 2014      2 comments

March and April are my craziest months of the year (with September, November & December following close behind) and it has been truly crazy. But exciting! And challenging and thought provoking and all those other good things. I just finished ... Read more
Exercise Embarrassment
Sunday, February 23, 2014      2 comments

I've started adding in some 20 minute cardio workouts in addition to my 15 min or so of yoga a day and I know why I'm having such a hard time committing to cardio: I'm embarrassed. I'm out of shape, slow, and my jumping is terrible. I know I s... Read more
Feeling "Thin"
Thursday, February 20, 2014      2 comments

Today I woke up feeling great about myself and I thought I'd give the scale a go. No weight loss, still within my three pound new normal range. I was a little bummed, but didn't let it ruin my day or anything. It just made me think about "fee... Read more
Feeling Strong
Friday, February 14, 2014      0 comments

Today was day 8 of 30 of the 30 day yoga challenge and I'm starting to feel stronger. My downward dogs have strength in them and my hips and shoulders are loosening up. Most importantly is that I'm getting a sense of accomplishment from sticki... Read more
