Hello Monday, we meet again

Here we are at Monday morning again. The weekends just seem to fly by. I can’t believe it’s already the second full week of July. It doesn’t seem like that long ago, that I had just moved into this condo. And now it’s been almost four months. That’s insane. The summer is flying by too…

Fitness Goals – Summer 2021

Yep. We’re back here again and I’m working on fitness goals for the summer. The heatwave has really made it hard to exercise or go for walks. I’ve mostly spent the week lying next to fans, cursing my life that I can’t afford air conditioning, and contemplating how on earth I was going to lose…

Saturday morning bagel and some rain

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve just sat down with my first cup of coffee – a real cup of coffee – and my breakfast. We finally had a break from the heat wave and got a wicked rain storm last night. I sat outside for the whole thing and it was wild to witness from…

Fitness Challenge 2021 – update 1

So, I figured I should post a fitness update since it’s already April 10th. The one major thing that has changed for me in this challenge is being able to cook more. I’m back to working with healthy foods and vegetables. I’ve made many meals in the past week and have posted the recipes for…

Fitness Goals 2021

Well, here we are with just a few days left of 2020. Looking back at previous fitness challenges I’ve set throughout the last year, I’m disappointed in the lack of progress I’ve made. Although some things changed – I’m more mindful of the foods I put into my body and how much I eat –…

Saturday morning coffee and a bagel thoughts

Once again it’s Saturday morning. I was up and out of bed at 8:00 am despite having restless dreams throughout the night. It’s a fasting day, so I’m finally just eating my usual breakfast and drinking my first coffee of the day. I switched it up to Tim Horton’s instant coffee. It’s not bad. I’m…

November Fitness Goals

It’s that time of month already – where has the year gone? It’s already November and yet it feels like I’ve done nothing this year. I guess that’s true since I’m still off work. I’m having a hard time filling in the hours of the day. So, it’s time to really buckle down and focus…

Fitness Goals: November 2020

It’s that time of month already – where has the year gone? It’s already November and yet it feels like I’ve done nothing this year. I guess that’s true since I’m still off work. I’m having a hard time filling in the hours of the day. So, it’s time to really buckle down and focus…

Fall has arrived early – the year is fading fast

This morning was rough. I couldn’t sleep last night and kept saying to myself, “just one more hour, and then I’ll get up.” My plans to wake up at 7:30 am and have a productive day turned into climbing out of bed at 1:00 pm. I don’t know what happened. A few weeks ago I…
