Fitness and me through ecards.

Linking up today with the LifeStyle Sistas, who really are the Style Me Bloggers but in general are just a bunch of ladies that I really, really, really like.  Like a lot.

So today we're talking fitness tidbits. Yikes.  I'm going to be brave today and tell you some secrets that I've only had breakdowns about with my closest friends, sister and husband.
I gained all my baby weight back.
With no baby to show :(
So. Sad.
How could I lose it all and then have it magically sneak back over the course of 2 years.
Okay, really, I know the answer to that.
And I know how to fix it.

I have goals and I'm competitive, which are both going to help me in my (hopeful) healthy lifestyle change. (As I type this, I'm on my third glass of wine. Oops)


But hey, my dietician sister is living with us, and that has drastically changed how I eat.  She rocks.
AND I'm also half way through week 4 of the Insanity workout program which hasn't been easy, but luckily my bro-in-law is doing it it's fun to see him suffer and sweat as well.  And then Dan has started his healthy regime too, so there's even more support.
I know I can do, I just have to keep reminding myself that.

So no, I don't have any huge fitness tidbits for you, but rather a peak into my struggles and maybe an accountability check for me, if anything.
I know I can do this.  I've done it before.
Also, new clothes are always fun :) Shaunacey, that means a shopping trip to Toronto, during Jays season. With Jordan.

Have a great weekend!
Keep fit and have fun!
Go team!


  1. Why is it so hard to get rid of weight and so easy to put it back on? Arggh. I can spend two weeks losing a pound and gain three back over a really yummy weekend. I'm impressed that you're doing insanity- I want to try it, but I think I'm too old - I think I'd get hurt :)!

  2. those ecards kill me! hilarious!
    YES shopping trip to Toronto!!!!!! i'd love to see you ladies!

  3. Good for you doing insanity. I have no clue what it is, but I know by the name I'd likely be too wimpy for it! This is a hard time of year to start a fitness quest. I am so proud of you. Glad you have so much support in your house! I will cheer you on from the sidelines until April and then you will have to drag my butt off the couch. I will have a shopping trip to get in shape for!!!

  4. I woke up on my 33rd birthday and noticed that everything on my body had shifted south. In the last year or so, as I have finally survived menopause, I realize my once semi-flat stomach is no longer and where there used to be muscle in my legs and arms, there isn't so much anymore. I am trying to get back to Weight Watchers and regular exercising but it seems harder than ever. I applaud you gals for your dedication and hard work. Hope you will inspire me to get back in shape.

  5. You are in better shape than you are letting on if you can do the Insanity workout! Good for you. I love the ecards... especially the hunger games one! lol!

  6. I'm so impressed that you are doing the Insanity workouts! Those are insanely (haha) difficult and I could never finish one! Love all of the ecards!


  7. I love your honesty and that endears me to people so much!! I've been too chicken to try insanity. I know it is a total butt-kicker and I think you're awesome for hanging with it. E-cards = hilarious + love the new theme.

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
