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 […]

This morning was the perfect morning. It left me with so many running thoughts…. The kids left for school by 7:30am, the air was cool and crisp, the sun was shining. Everything fell neatly into place. I ate my oatmeal and headed out for a run by 8:30am. I didn’t use my Garmin and I […]

Is 21 Day Fix really is the most effective weight loss and maintenance program available today? In my opinion. Yes, yes it really is. After using the program myself for 6 months and coaching others during that the same 6 month period I have learned so much about it and have been continually impressed by […]

Done With Winter

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 […]

Creating Better Habits

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 […]

I have my workout routine pretty set. Running is by far my first love but I also do various combinations of yoga, Pilates and most recently started lifting weights. I normally work out from home and only occasionally do group classes. This past week however, I was invited by a friend to really get out […]
