Current Happenings

I need to find myself a cause to support this year.  What with all the commotion over my husband losing his job, we didn't participate in the Plains & Pastures.  None of us was in good enough shape to do it. 

NEXT YEAR!!

Plains & Pastures Bike Tour (2013)

I'm so proud to live here! Fredericton folks are just AMAZING!!!  Thank you one and all!!  My team raised over $2000.  The support was humbling.  What a great place to be!!!

Mind you, the journey isn't about me - it's about people who fight this horrible disease on a daily basis.  If you're reading this now, I hope you'll come back and sponsor me in the ride next time. 

 

Bike for Breath

Many thanks to everyone and their generosity.  The amazing people in my life supported me to the tune of $377.  Some days it is just great to be here!   (Fall 2012)

Motivation

Motivation is a funny thing.  Ha Ha.  Not so funny at all.  Particularly when you discover that yours has disappeared.

There’s a lovely young man at the Y lately.  He’s been motivating me with his personal stories and factors in his success losing nearly one hundred pounds so far.  WAY TO GO!  Conversations happen in 2 minute sound bites as I rush back to work.  But in those two minutes he manages to convey spark & enthusiasm.  He’s rediscovering the joy of movement again.  That’s fun.   I remember that heady bit of triumph as you manage to turn the tide.  It’s totally fun.

Sometimes that’s all it takes.  Fun is infectious.  Makes me want to get back to it.  

Fall has arrived here.  That can only mean one thing.  Dog training classes are starting up again.  That’s fun!

The leaves are turning & the bugs are gone for the season.  Walks are wonderful in the fall.  Crank up the tunes and head out in the crisp clean air.  That’s fun.

It’s like somebody lit some dynamite under the log jam.  Don’t look a gift horse in the teeth.  Just go have fun.  

Here’s a photo taken in 2010.  It’s from a mountain pass called the Malahat back home in BC.  I’m thinking I’m almost ready to take on some hikes in those mountains now.  Next trip!  And that will be fun......
