Happy Friday to you!  I didn’t really want to write this week’s update because I didn’t think that it would be too great, but then I thought: no wait, part of recovery is having little tiny set-backs that make you sad for a second, but then make you determined and more kind in the end.  So, this week I’m going to share a little bit about a weird thing that happened at the gym, as well as a little side update about our bunny George. (He’s named George because of this).

The punch line:  I didn’t quit the gym. Continue reading

The when I learned to overcome RSDS

Happy Friday!  It’s hard to believe that this is newsy update #3!  This week, I will give you a little gym update (I found a kindred spirit), and talk about RSDS (Reflexive Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), and also share a few little milestones that I reached.  I feel like I could sum up this week with a quote from Mother Teresa; “Faithfulness, not success.” (I first saw this quote in Eric Metaxas’ book titled “Seven Women; and the secret to their greatness”.  If you have not read this…I recommend it).

So, first of all..lets talk RSDS, which is just the technical name for “wow, Continue reading

The time that I learned to say thank you and not be embarrassed

Happy Friday! This week’s installment has a little bit of everything.  I’m going to give you some little updates on my ongoing saga at the gym (the bicycle triumph and the rowing machine of doom and torture), as well as some really interesting things that I’ve learned about myself and the population of Oshawa and Canada at large that I think you will find 100% encouraging.

First of all, my promised gym update.  This week was the week of perseverance.  Every day I wake up and go “ok, you can make it to the gym. Continue reading

The Time I Joined A Gym While Using A Cane

Hello!  Welcome back!  It looks like its 2016.  Yup.  It also looks like I haven’t published anything since September last year.  Yup.  So much has happened since then, and also not a lot.  I wasn’t sure what to post or what not to post…so I just got bummed out and neglected the blog.  It seems like every post in recent history has started out with “Hey, here’s a blog, and also yes, I haven’t written anything in a while”.  But some really close people in my life have been encouraging me to come back to the blog.  And I’m very glad that they did.  For all of the articles I had written about not letting the internet get to you, and to make sure that you are being yourself and creating things because you like to and want to share them, I 100% let myself believe the lie that it wasn’t worth writing or creating because the internet is so big and someone else will have already thought of everything to write about anyway.  Good grief.  That’s not true at all.

In October, I had a very severe ankle injury, was on crutches and using an air cast Continue reading
