Girl’s Night Out Doing Aerial Yoga


I sure love going out with my friends. When you’re older and a mom with family responsibilities, it’s difficult to coordinate busy schedules to work out a get together. But coordinate I did, and on Friday night, ten of us hit Core Elements for a private aerial yoga session with Kendall. I like to coordinate nights that have a fund…

October Buffboxx- Vintage Shorts Rock!


It may be getting too chilly to run outside in shorts, but that’s what the gym is for! I need to rock my new vintage looking shorts I received in my October Buffboxx.  This month’s box had a few large items, so let’s dive in! Thrive Market Sunflower Butter– I have been hearing good things about Thrive Market! Unfortunately, they…

Fall Running Essentials


I love fall! I love the cool, crisp air, the beautiful leaves. I also love how there are less people out; although come on people- get outside and enjoy! But lately I’ve been struggling with yet another life transition- working mommy. I’ve been subbing 3-4 times a week and have been making excuses to not workout on days I teach.…

Friday Fitness- Can I be a 5 a.m. morning person?


During the last couple weeks I have been busy teaching like crazy and I’m noticing a major drop in my workouts. When I get home, I like to go on an easy walk with the baby and then play on the living room floor. I’m starting to think that if I want to get back onto a consistent running schedule,…

September Buffboxx- Teal is my Colour


You know it’s fall when your Buffboxx comes with a long sleeve t-shirt instead of a tank or shorts. I was really happy with my box this month because teal is my colour! Okay, let’s review what came in this September. LSTN Crescent wireless earbuds Cytomax hydration drink– I keep forgetting to try this after a long run! Bhu Keto…

Friday Fitness- Fall Walking


It’s funny, when I was recovering from my C-section and only allowed to go for walks, I was so bored and so anxious to get running. Five months later, I’m back at work as well as taking care of the baby, and I find walks with him to be a relaxing time for the two of us to bond and…

Friday Fitness- Genuine Health Superfood


After last Friday’s vent session about the stubborn baby weight, I worked hard to make my workouts and healthy eating a priority this week. I even went for a run one day after the baby fell asleep at 7 p.m. For someone who goes to bed at 9pm, working out at 7pm is super late. But I was determined and…

Friday Fitness- Stubborn Baby Weight


I miss those first six weeks after Tynan was born. Yes, I was in pain from my C-section and I was exhausted from no sleep and figuring out breastfeeding, but I didn’t give two thoughts to my weight during that time. It was magical. My mom stuffed me with treats every day saying I needed the calories for nursing and…

Friday Fitness- Testing JĀSÖN Natural Deodorant


Happy Friday! It’s the last Friday of summer and the kids go back to school next week. How is that possible? WHERE did this summer go?! I didn’t quite get in all the adventures I wanted, but I’m still happy with how life went and where it’s going. I’m also happy with how I’m slowly but surely prioritizing my workouts…

August BuffBoxx- Stuffed!


You know the box is good when it’s so stuffed that it’s open a crack. I was like a little kid when I noticed the stuffed BuffBoxx this week and couldn’t wait to go home and see what was inside! Monster Hydro Tropic Thunder- I haven’t tried this yet. There is sugar in it and I’m trying not to drink…

Friday Fitness- Classes for the Win!


It’s been a good week workout-wise. I was finally able to get in and take some classes which I really love because it pushes me harder than I workout on my own. Friday- Nothing After Thursday’s personal training session where I did a total of 240 squats I could barely walk. I had the best intentions to hit spin &…

2018 Raymond Triathlon Recap


It’s been almost two weeks since the Raymond Triathlon, it’s about time I finally sat down and finished the recap! If you read recaps of previous triathlons like the 2012 Splash Pedal Gasp, 2012 Magrath Triathlon, and the 2014 Magrath Triathlon, you know that I have this terrible habit of signing up for a tri and then barely training. I…

Friday Fitness- Joining Gold’s Gym


My title says it all. Last week I finally had enough of the heat keeping me indoors and the lack of at home workouts. They have child care so I can go during the day with TyTy and he’s cared for. I’m looking forward to all the classes too.  I like being in a class environment because it pushes me…

Perfection! Here’s all what came in this months BuffBoxx. Adept Nutrition BCAA’s Razorwire Energy Pills Lifeline Muscle Massage Kit MRM Veggie Protein Powder MRM Digest-All…

Friday Fitness- Better Than I Thought


This weekly recap is very easy. I did not work out all week with the exception of BodyCombat at Golds with my mom on Thursday. I’m not going to give an excuse, I’ve been lazy and spending my time with my family doing things besides workouts. That said, I am pretty happy with how I did in BodyCombat. If you…

Friday Fitness- Postpartum Muscle Weakness?


This was not the best week but it was a fun week! Friday- Easy stroller walk 1.63 miles Our daily outing is a walk to the post office a half mile away and back. On some days I wander around the streets to add more walking time on. Saturday- Nothing I purposefully did nothing to save up my legs for…

Fitgal Activewear Giveaway


***Giveaway is now closed*** One of the things I love about blogging is the chance to work with Canadian companies and promote their products and services. When Fitgal approached me wanting to do a giveaway with my readers I jumped at the chance. What surprised me most was how affordable this line of activewear is! Typically, anything Canadian is more…

June BuffBoxx- Sweet Potato Chips are da Bomb!


Thank goodness for my Buffboxx! Being home all day on unpaid maternity leave can get a little dull and we don’t have the budget for shopping. My BuffBoxx is my little present that brightens each month. During the last two months, I’ve had chips but the sweet potato chips this month were so yummy!! So let’s look at what came…

Friday Fitness- Fit & Chic


Can I please have a mulligan on this week? You guys- how do you get back into that groove where if you miss a workout you feel awful and crave a sweat session? Because those 6 weeks of doctor ordered rest has gotten me comfortable with inactivity. Basically, I have nothing to share this week because I didn’t make time…

I am trying to lose those last 15 pounds from my pregnancy and is it ever hard! As someone who has been into fitness and working out for more than half my life, I am blown away at how hard it can be to lose weight. The other day as I struggled on a run I thought about how challenging…
