So it’s the end of race season and it feels awful. This is exactly why I enter races. Without the constant prep for the next race, I find my motivation lags and it becomes a struggle to push myself to get outside and run. Once I get just a little bit lazy, it gets worse […]

This past weekend I completed my last race of 2016. I ran the Montreal Rock n’Roll Half Marathon and it was truly amazing! Last year I ran the full marathon at this same race and had planned to do the same again this year however injury and circumstance made me rethink that choice and go for […]

The hardest part about clean eating is getting past the mental block of how to cook in a different way. Often we have been making our recipes the same way for years and possibly even for generations, especially when family favorites are handed down the line!

Kids-Tulip-Garden-Salad-200x300

To all my fellow mommies out there…let’s talk about getting our kids to eat their veggies! If you have a baby you’re in luck because that’s where it all begins. At least it did for my kids.

Technically, the winter has been amazing in Montreal this year. We didn’t have snow until just after Christmas. We’ve had many mild days and even weeks since then. Mild of course being minus 5 to zero degrees Celsius. You would think this makes me happy right? Wrong. I’ve recently come to realize that it’s just […]

journal

About six months ago I read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. There were many insightful moments in that book but what struck me the most was the concept of trying something new each month and slowly stacking up new habits instead of trying to change a lot at once. So I decided to give […]

Becoming a #Fitmom

How did I become a #fitmom? When I first began my journey into fitness, many friends and family members did not really think I was serious about the whole thing. The assumed it was a phase, a resolution and it wouldn’t really change me. But it did. It changed everything. After 2 years I can say […]
