My last race made me do some thinking. It was an extreme race that I signed up for due to peer pressure and ego pressure. I was so determined to get back to who I was I forgot how many steps it took me to get there. I wanted to restart my run... Read more

This week I started bootcamp/kick boxing classes. I was a little nervous about going, been so long since I've taken any classes. It took only a couple of minutes before I felt back in my element and was glad I signed up. I tried a kick boxing... Read more

Tomorrow morning I restart my 6AM bootcamp classes. I used to really enjoy these but I'm still nervous about restarting for a couple of reasons. Last time I was doing these I was 30 pounds lighter and had much better stamina. The gym ... Read more

Every year in August my thyroid flips out and I retain water that would make a camel jealous. Up 15 pounds in 2 days and then just to be on the safe side my body added on another 5 for good measure. The last three years when this happened I trie... Read more

Life has started to settle down and I'm feeling more like myself. I needed to push myself back to where I wanted to be and not let the past devour my future. I have a favourite thinking spot and decided to head out there. The hike itself i... Read more
