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)


Breaking logjams

This past six months have been hell on the stats.  My husband got notice of layoff in the spring.  It's pretty obvious on the graph when that was -- the trending down came to an abrupt halt and started to climb back up again.  I *think* I've finally got it turned around now.

The first order of business is get the stress under control.  How will I know I've done that?  Sleep will be improved.  I've been trying real hard to get close to 8 hours a night, and as you can see the quality is slowly returning.   

The next thing is to get back into the weight room for resistance training.  Biking & swimming are both fantastic low-impact aerobic activities, but not the best for fat burning. 

Similarly, I'm back on track with the apprenticeship to become a personal trainer.  I've been observing other trainers for a few sessions now, and more to come.  Fun Times!
