New Blog

I’m sick of tumblr crashing and eating my posts.

I’ve Moved!

I can now be found over on wordpress:

Kids in bed, Curry, Champagne (well Canadian stuff,  Ice Cuvée) and Zombies.
A perfect Anniversary (and I even got out of my yoga clothes!).

On love (and Marriage)

On February 17, 2005, I was lucky enough to marry the man that I love:

As the years went by we left Toronto and moved to Montreal:

2006:

2007 (it was cold there, seems like we were always wearing puffy jackets):

In 2008 we moved back to Toronto:

And settled back into the city that we love.

2009:

In 2010 our little people joined us on our adventure:

And the little people encouraged us to live a healthier life.

2011

I am a passionate believer in divorce, only because I know the true happiness of a good marriage. We take care of one another, support one another and love one another.

I’m so happy that I have a great partner in this life.

Week 6 of 2012

I can already say that week 6 was much more productive than week 7 (hasn’t been a great week so far - mostly due to severe back pain).

February 5 - 4.5K run (pushing stroller), and 10.3K walk (8 as part of Ladies walk night)

February 6 - 35 mins elliptical, 25mins weights

February 7 - 8k Run, 2k Walk

February 8 - 3.4K walk, 40 mins Elliptical, 20 mins Bike, 15 mins weights

February 9 - 4.3K run (pushing stroller), kids swimming

Februauy 10 - Cardio Sculpt class

February 11 - 45 mins Elliptical, 35 mins weights

I’m really not enjoying running pushing the stroller, not even a little bit. I feel like it’s hurting my back (ye know, heavy stroller plus 2 heavy kids = almost over a hundred pounds). I’m just not loving it.

And, I haven’t done any long runs, every sunday the weather has been so gross that I just go to the gym. I’m beginning to get very worried for the Half in May.

Friday night.
Glass of red wine.
Two cuties asleep in bed(maybe for a long time, we took them swimming!).
Novel and blanket while husband works on new closet drawers in garage.
One happy lady!

This is how I sleep (when she will let me). Notice how much of my pillow I have?

Week 5 of 2012

I finally feel like we are getting somewhere.

Yes, last week my little lady had to go to the doctor, again, this time a throat infection, so I was not as productive as I would have liked.

BUT, I did manage to squeeze in a few workouts.

January 29 - 12K! YEA!

January 30 -  Nothing, little lady very sick.

January 31 - 6K run, 11 min miles (goal pace for the half).

February 1 - 30 mins Elliptical, 20 Mins spinning, 20 mins weights

February 2 - Nothing, hard week of sick baby

February 3 - 5.4K walk, 35 mins yoga (JM DVD during nap time), 4k Fartlek (which I HATED)

February 4 - Cardio Sculpt (not as good as last week, too much 1980s aerobics and not enough weights).

The Antibiotics are working:

Productive

I went to my cardio sculpt class, cleaned out the little runners room (including sorting the mountains of clothes), cleaned our room, and sorted all the kitchen cupboards.

I even had a moment to cuddle:
