Natural Pain Management

I am one of those people who loves a good wallow. When I feel low, I am the type to hide out and binge watch Netflix (and usually binge eat things I shouldn’t). This is particularly true when I am in physical pain. While I used to pop advil like they were candy at the… [Read More]

You can’t pour from an empty cup

Right now I am supposed to be sitting in my cramped Kia Rio driving from Chicago to Toronto after having run the 2016 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Instead, I am sitting at the kitchen island in my Toronto condo after shoving my face with a Thanksgiving feast writing this. Annoying post about running coming… [Read More]

A few weeks ago I saw something on social media about a new Spinning studio called Spokehaus that… [Read More]

Vegan Bulletproof Latte

If you know me, you know that there are a few things I really really love. One, of course being Happy Hubs, the other being coffee (and depending on the day, I may sometimes love coffee over Hubs). I literally cannot before coffee. Sometimes even after. I am NOT a morning person to say the… [Read More]

27 Kilometres for 27 Years

With an early January birthday, I often feel that my birthday is the REAL beginning of a new year, because it is literally a new year, at least for me. I find it hard to believe that as of last Thursday, I am now in my 28th year of life. The highlight of my day… [Read More]

Let it snow!

I have a confession to make. Last Saturday I didn’t get out of my pjs until about 6:00pm. On Sunday, I didn’t get out of them at all (unless you count the 40 minutes that I put leggings on for to go get take out, after which I put my pjs back on). Monday was… [Read More]
