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

Last month Ian and I attended an event called "Melody Runs Through It". It was put on by Dream Development as part of their campaign to raise awareness about Saskatoon's newest up-and-coming neighborhood, Brighton.

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

Last year I did something completely out of the norm for me and signed up for aerial hammock. I hadn't done group fitness before and it was a brand new experience for me. I took the 6-week session at Club Mynx here in Saskatoon and loved it. I was into fitness before trying the hammock, but… Continue reading Aerial Hoop

Melody Runs Through It

The other week Ian and I were driving out to our favourite restaurant, Pink Cadillac's. Rather than driving through the city, we head towards the highway to avoid some of the lights. As we were driving I looked at my window and started seeing all sorts of signs for Saskatoon's next community, Brighton. Future home… Continue reading Melody Runs Through It

Citrus Hill Clothing Boutique

We have all been there. You're standing in front of your closet with a multitude of individual pieces in front of you and you feel like you have nothing to wear. It's not that you lack options, it's just that there are too many combinations but none of them feel like that "perfect" outfit in that… Continue reading Citrus Hill Clothing Boutique

My Running Essentials

It's getting to be that time of year where I can finally go outside for runs! For most of the year, I have no choice but to stick to the treadmill. I'm always amazed when I see people running outside during the winter, if I tried that I would fall flat on my face! I… Continue reading My Running Essentials

Skivvy Style Box

I think we all know by now that I love mystery clothing boxes.

First Thoughts on Orangetheory Fitness

I'm in all sorts of pain as I sit here writing this. Don't worry, it's the good kind of pain. The kind of pain you get when you know you've had a successful workout and can feel yourself getting more fit. The best kind of pain there is.

Frock Box Favorites

I recently tried out the new Canadian mystery clothing box subscription Frock Box. While I loved one item, the box was mostly a bust for me.

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

When I first started running at the beginning of 2015, I decided I wanted to run in Color Me Rad.

Sandhills & Cypress Hills

I already talked about our adventure ziplining in Cypress Hills, but now it's time to talk about the part of the trip that leads up to that.

Why Do I Sweat?

I was recently approached by a company to write about what inspires and fuels my workouts, and to give insight into my fitness routine. At the same time they contacted me, I found out about a contest that SportChek was having. They wanted you to send in your best "swealfie" and tell them why you sweat. These… Continue reading Why Do I Sweat?
