Hot Yoga – Addict or Hate it?

Hand Of  Woman Meditating In A Yoga Pose On Beach
I have a personal goal of feeling more grounded this year so Hot Yoga was a great first #TryANewYou challenge. At first I wasn't so much a fan. The heat was surprising & my capabilities were not as good as I had hoped. As we near the end of the month, I am a changed woman. If you are considering trying something new, here are a few key benefits (there are so many more) that I have discovered on my journey through this challenge. Benefits of HOT YOGA Creating space in your body I am surprised how open & energized I feel.  Life

A case of the Mondays

Live, Laugh, Love
Mom Says: The kids looked on. Maybe more than a bit perplexed. Hands covering their ears as I topped out the speakers to play some music. Music that I needed to reverberate through my body. Music that took me back to university, parties at my first house, deep base, heavy chords, ones I couldn't help but dance to. Not in a pretty Travis Wall kind of way, more like Flea hopping around the stage at a Chili Peppers concert. Yes. That was me today. I don't remember the last time I let a day get to me so much but

All the links below are linked back to the Marilyn Denis Show. They will be taking them down soon so if you want to see our experience, check it out.  Last year at this time, I was nervously a twitter. It was a less than a couple of weeks before we were about to go on a national television show and I was going to say my weight OUT LOUD. On Marilyn Denis. You know...cause nothing like putting it out there for all of Canada to know. We knew that we had let ourselves have "Too much fun" and had gone

#TryANewYou- Hot Yoga

Peace of Mind wooden sign with a beach on background
If there is one thing we learned from last year, it was in order to be successful at something, you need to decide what your goal is, set a timeline and make a plan. My goal this year is to find things that make me smile and feed my soul more. The idea of taking on a challenge and succeeding at it helped me jump out of an airplane, run a half marathon, lose weight, climb a mountain...you get it. It also helped me realize that absolutely nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. Set your intent. 2015

What feeds your soul?

Life Balance
Mom Says: We took on last year with a saying.. "Come Before Winter". It was borrowed from a story in the bible. One about Paul encouraging his friend Timothy to do his utmost to come before winter to visit him. As you can imagine, in the long run, Timothy is too late. By the time he comes (in Spring) Paul had died. The theme being its important to take action now vs waiting till later. We are not religious but those words have become our everything. For us, it became our cue that rather than saying someday we will do it, we will

The Moveable Feast

Mom Says: My Mother in Law is a wise woman. (& I'm not just saying that cause I know she reads our blog). I'm saying it because she taught me a concept so powerful that it fundamentally changed the way I view life. Changed the way I set up expectations, helped me let go when I was upset, helped me NOT get upset and it set me free. She taught me The Moveable Feast. As we enter into the mayhem of  Christmas, I have a number of friends who's Christmas plans are not exactly shaping up how they were supposed to. People
