Walking in colour

Recently, Q and I participated in our very first 5 km fun run.  I have this love-hate, actually let's be honest, it's really more of a hate-hate, kind of relationship with running. I'm not really built to be a runner, nor have I ever really been, but during various times in my life, *ahem Army days ahem*, I have done a lot of it. I know it's good cardio and exercise, and I hear every say … [Read more...]

Never give up – Q’s views

Hi, this is Q here and this is what happens when you bang your lip with my knees and bit it at the same time. This happened today at gymnastics training. I am a gymnast and I'm on the conpetitive team. I train 2 times a week right now but soon I will train more. I really love gymnastics. This is how I did it. I was doing a roll and I banged my knee on my mouth and bit it at the same time. Then it … [Read more...]

Songs to make you smile 2 – Music Monday 

I am not sure how the weather has been where you are, but here it has been gorgeous. Spring has truly arrived and the weather has been pretty much perfect, if not occasionally a bit warm, for my daily morning walks. This week has been pretty stressful for me, and let me tell you, stress and  CRPS are not a good combination. As a result, I've been dealing with some really high … [Read more...]

Let’s walk – Music Monday

How is it April already? I know it's been a while since I've done a Music Monday, but with a new month, all that's changing and I am back to it. I don't have a definitive theme for this week, aside from these all being good songs.  I have recently started working out again, something I haven't been able to do for acouple months. Between the bouts of bronchitis and strep throat leading up to … [Read more...]

Songs to pep you up – Music Monday

Another week, another Music Monday. This is one of my favourites to do each week and I hope that you are finding some new songs to jam to. I'm going to be honest and say that I'm feeling a bit draggy today. I'm recovering from bronchitis (yay), I'm nervous about my upcoming surgery and nerve block, and all that good stuff. So today my goal was just to find some songs that perk me up and hope that … [Read more...]

Songs to get you moving – Music Monday

Happy Monday friends! I know I haven't done Music Monday for a few weeks, but it's 2016 and I don't think that anyone should have to face a new week without some awesome tunes to get you through, so I'm starting it up again. This week I wanted to feature some tunes that get us all pumped up and moving, in the hopes that they will do the same for you. There are few things funner than a spontaneous … [Read more...]

Plus size women shouldn’t…

No one likes being told that they can't or shouldn't do things. Now imagine, if you will, being a woman and being told that because of your size you shouldn't do activities like yoga, or dance, or even go to the gym. Being told that you are "too big" or "too chubby" or "make people uncomfortable". Getting the side eye when you walk into a yoga or dance studio or snickered at in the gym. Being told … [Read more...]

It all started with a picture

It was just another day, really. I had been away for the weekend and had picked up a new pair of (totally awesome) leggings. I mean really. These leggings have skulls made up of little starbursts on them. So cool. Since the weather is getting colder again, what with fall being here and everything, it's rapidly becoming obvious that the time to switch from skirts to leggings is nearly upon us. And … [Read more...]
