A Good Day To Be Lazy

Remember back in the remaining days of October when Rick, Dr. Beth, and I had agreed to make November a Three-way Challenge of Awesomeness? Our mission – if you recall – was to spend time each and every day of the month doing some form of physical activity; be that walking, running, biking, stretching, or…

Zzzzzzzzzzzz

I am exhausted. So much so, that I crawled into bed at 9:30 and I’m fighting to stay awake long enough to write this post. I won’t lie – it’s a bit difficult as I keep finding myself dozing off. It doesn’t help that Elliot is sprawled out across me looking fuzzy and cute as…

Suck It Up Princess

This week has been my taper week. By taper, I mean that I’ve reduced my physical activity to what seems to be nothing. I’ve walked, and bounced, and I’ve stretched, and stretched some more. But I have not run. I’ve wanted to. Oh how I’ve wanted to. Especially with the weather we’ve had. And seeing other people…

Always Look Again: The May Health Challenge

Several days ago, my friends Dr. Julie and Dr. Mark1 posted a challenge on their website (read more about the details here). That gist of the challenge – dubbed the May Health Challenge – is simple: Do something every day for the first 30 days of May that serves to improve your overall health. Whatever…

7 Seconds From Awesome

What can you do in 7 seconds? I ask, because tonight was a night that was so close to Awesome, some math nerds might suggest that it was Awesome minus , where is a tiny positive number. Okay, you all probably realize that by some math nerds I really mean me. Tonight was awesome for two…

10 To 15 Pounds Of Fatty Fat Fat Fat

Just Call Me Lazy Pants McGee

Since my surgery I haven’t been as active as I would like. There, I’ve said it. Sadly, that doesn’t make me feel any better about the situation, and this bugs me. I’m feeling quite lazy these days, and I really need to get back into the swing of things. Of course, I realize that I…

Embracing Exhaustion

About a week ago, my fellow run-until-you-puke-to-feel-like-you’ve-done-something-awesome friend, Carolyn, posted about her outing with the Guelph Victors – a group of people who gather on Tuesdays at St. James school in Guelph to partake in interval training. After reading her post, I knew I wanted to try it. So tonight, after biking home from work…
