My hysterectomy journey

478577419-2

It has been 85 days, 6 hours,30 mins and 15 seconds since I had my full hysterectomy....but who's counting?  It is amazing how removing something from your life can add so much to it. I do not come by the figurative wine glass half full naturally, but you cannot train with amazing women for over 13 years and not have something other than tiger balm rub off on you! Being FORCED and not able to move (at one point I had to call my husband to come and pick me up from the end of the driveway, which is the length of a standard hopscotch BTW) made me realize a few things. […]

YOUletide Greetings

478577419-2

 As many of my fitness family already know I am having surgery over the holidays. I am very excited about it as it will end the pain I have been having for many years and enable me to live the active and exciting life with all of you that I love!!! I will be in hospital for a few days and on the couch for many more so  I met with Lisa from Rise Nutrition to discuss an optimal eating strategy for recovery afterwards. She simply asked me Why wait? BUSTED! Does this ring a New Year's bell with anyone?! […]

Baby it's cold outside!

478577419-2

As new parents it can be difficult knowing how to dress our babies (believe me it is still a struggle when they are 8 and want to wear a tiara in a snow storm...I mean I get it but...) for the colder months...all 9 of them. After 15 years of hanging out with my winter babies and of course asking several Pediatricians I do have some suggestions that I hope will be helpful and encourage you to enjoy some fresh air with your little snowflakes! […]

I love it when moms talk

478577419-2

I love it when my Moms talk about me behind my back, especially when they write it down! Jennifer is not only an INCREDIBLE Mom to 2 of my favorite littles EVER! she is also a REALLY REALLY REALLY good writer! Check out her blog MOMMYSTRYING.CA ( and I am not even a little bit saying that because she wrote about me!) […]

I've got your back....(and your front!)

478577419-2

Staying home often means being able to create your own schedule and that has often included making lots of healthy choices for you and your growing family. ( On the days after you have had a solid 5 hours of several sleep interruptions!!) Perhaps that has included several of my mom and baby fitness classes per week ( yeah!!), or an exercise routine that has better served you ( still yeah!) and dedicating more time in the kitchen preparing fresh and healthy meals. ( heck you were up anyway!) Going back to work doesn't mean that has to stop but it does require planning. […]

House of Cores (instead of cards....get it?)

478577419-2

When I was pregnant I felt as big as a house, a giant house, an apartment building actually.  To be fair, it had been used as rental property to three tenants at one time or another. And even  though I made a fantastic landlord (clean, non smoking unit, no view but centrally located!), I had no problem evicting each of them in just under our 9 month lease. […]

None of us are Perfect!

I thought now would be a great time to remind you that 88% of all new years resolutions FAIL!  Feel better? Not yet? Check this out.... Research shows that the part of the brain that is responsible for will power works just like a muscle. […]

CanFitPro Trainer of the Year 2012

478577419-2

I was shocked and overwhelmed to be even nominated for canfitpro Fitness Professional of the Year. I now understand why people say that they cannot begin to describe an event in words. From the second I entered the convention centre to the moment my name was announced I knew I was a part of something great! Since I was in awe of everyone in the room […]
