The Time I Made My Own Job

The Time I Made My Own Job

I know, it sounds a bit weird. How do you go and make your own job? No, I didn’t start my own business, I made my own job. I work at a small hotel, The Beverley Hotel, that was recently bought by a couple new, really cool guys. After almost 3 years of being a front desk agent at this hotel, I observed a need for something that the company didn’t yet have. (more…)

The Gym Is Scary – Tips For Getting Started!

The Gym Is Scary – Tips For Getting Started!

I know that sounds a bit strange, but the gym can be an intimidating place. And for the amount that I’m at the gym, you’d think I’d be over it – I can only imagine what people who never go to the gym feel like when they step inside for the first time.If I’m being completely candid with you, I still have yet to even walk into the weight lifting area of my gym. The gym I go to is two floors, and the RPM/Group Fitness studios are all on the lower floor, while the cardio and weights are on the upper. (more…)

Friendships: They Key To Happiness

Friendships: They Key To Happiness

I’ve never been one to have a huge group of friends really. I had different best friends throughout elementary school, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I had a big group of friends. I had my handful of people and that was all. Same when I got to high school. Our group consisted of about 5-6 girls, but by the end of high school most had moved away and I just kept to myself until I was finished. (more…)

Double RPM Wednesdays Can Be Challenging – Today It Was Good!

I teach RPM twice on Wednesdays. At noon at the GoodLife Fitness at 137 Yonge, and at 5:30 pm at the GoodLife Fitness at Scotia Plaza (YAY shameless plug – come to my class!) and normally on Wednesdays, I’m pretty tired. I can ride two RPM classes just fine, I can even teach one and ride one, or ride two back-to-back, but teaching two is hard. I’m still getting used to it.  (more…)

It Is Hard To Eat. And.. GRIT.

It Is Hard To Eat. And.. GRIT.

I know, I know. This sounds like a dumb statement. The title of this post I mean. But it’s soooooo true. If you’re trying to build muscle mass, or strength, or just working out in general fairly often, you might not be eating as much as you should be.  (more…)

Hydration Is KING!

Hydration Is KING!

Ok, so last night I slept 11 hours straight – this is not an exaggeration. With a lifestyle like mine, it catches up with me and then BAM I sleep for like a day. I can’t tell you how much more rested I feel today – but that also got me thinking…. Probably a lot of the reason why I find myself tired a lot is the fact that I don’t keep properly hydrated.  (more…)

New Recipe: Tofu Hummus Wrap!

New Recipe: Tofu Hummus Wrap!

Today I woke up feeling really friggen good. I’ve had a bit of a rough patch that I’m working through lately and today I was super mindful with how I was feeling and totally ran with it. I got up, made my bed (I ALWAYS do this – I don’t know why…) made some green tea infused with some grapefruit herbal tea, and cut up a grapefruit to have for breakfast. (more…)
