Surfset YYC

I like having yearly bucket lists for myself. I find this helps me feel like I'm accomplishing something over the course of 12 months. One item on the list for this year was to try out at least 5 new types of fitness. I am happy to say, I just hit that magic number 5!… Continue reading Surfset YYC

Broadway Avenue Fit Fest

Broadway Avenue is going through some major construction this summer. The water and sewer mains were installed between 1908 and 1912 and while some replacement was done in 1956, the water mains at the intersections were not. Water main breaks have been becoming more common and so the old ones are finally being replaced. They expect construction… Continue reading Broadway Avenue Fit Fest

Aerial Hoop

Orange is the New Workout

I often end up feeling like I'm at a stalemate with my weight loss and fitness regime. I've said this before in my monthly fitness updates and lately, I've been trying different types of fitness to mix it up a bit. The only issue with that is that classes happen once a week, which still… Continue reading Orange is the New Workout

Aerial Hammock

You might have noticed that I didn't post a fitness update after July. Quite frankly, I didn't have anything to say. DietBet ended and I was at a standstill. Life was going on as normal, I was going to the gym, I was eating my regular meals, but nothing was changing. It probably would have… Continue reading Aerial Hammock
