I feel Good!!!!

When the leaves start to fall I start feeling like its time to hibernate.  While the sounds of chilling out on the couch wrapped in a warm blanket eating a big bowl of chili sound pretty amazing, after a week of that I’m bored!  So I took matters into my own hands.  I once again joined the gym.  My body is thanking me and my mood is always better after I have hit the gym.

Getting me to the gym on the other hand isn’t always easy.  Just like most of us I worry about how I look in my gym clothes, I think about how tired I am, and the laundry that needs to be folded and dinner that won’t make itself.  Even when I’m on a cardio machine I think to myself….this is so freaking boring I would much rather be wakeboarding.  That’s it, my motivation.  I want to be a better wakeboarder.  I have a goal!  To reach that goal I have to get active.  Now I have said this in the past and haven’t stuck with it.  This time could be no different but what the hell do I have to lose?  Oh yeah that 2nd chin I started growing….that’s what I have to loose!!

Wakeboarding is where I found inspiration to get started, however I am now realizing how I feel after my workout.  My energy is way up, my anxiety is way down, and I eat much healthier on the days that I go to the gym.  My inspiration has totally changed but still includes wakeboarding….I just want to be a happier and healthier person.  Will I fuck up along the way…no doubt!  I ate a bowl of chips in bed at 10pm last night but I felt bad while doing it!  Its all adjusting, so clearly I’m still working out the kinks!

Photography is also another motivator.  I want and need more energy to do all the things that I love to do with the people I love.  In some ways I feel like I am breathing new air.  I’ve lined up more photography jobs in the past month than I have in the past 6 months.  I had a logo made and I’m starting to work on a new website for my photography.  My heart feels happier, taking steps to feel better and to put more effort into the things I absolutely love to do.  That being said feel free to visit my Facebook Page and check out my photography…..can’t wait till the new site is up and running!  Book a session, say cheese and capture some memories!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Its all Happening!!!!

This week is just going to kick ass!  It started off with me scoring 98% on a test I had to write for work.  Total weight off of my shoulders.  Tomorrow Matt and I are going to see Belle and Sebastian at Massey Hall.  I bought the tickets as a Christmas gift for Matt.  It seemed to take forever for the day to come but it finally has.
If a concert wasn’t enough its also a short work week thanks to Easter….oh yeah and the weekend is going to be filled with good food, chocolate, friends and family!  EEEeeee!  I’m so excited!
I’m also grateful for all this fun, it helps the time pass….cause OMG….I can’t even type the words without freaking out!  My BFF and I are getting out of the poop weather here in Ontario and heading out for a week of Sun, fun, Sand, Relaxing, Bonding, and Reading in the Dominican!
This girl has been my best friend since high school.  Unfortunately she is a 5 hour drive away from me, so this trip really means the world to me!  Its an entire week of hanging with my girl, with no worries about what to make for dinner, alarm clocks, and appointments.  Its a week just for us!  I honestly have the best family for being supportive and encouraging me to go.  Matt’s doing something for me that I’m not sure that I could do in return.  I’m so in love with this guy its crazy!  Its going to be hard to be away from him for a week.  He really has no idea the extent to what he has given me.   The best part of being a part is coming together again.  Just as much as I am looking forward to my trip, I am looking forward to coming home to Matt and the Kids!

Happy Easter to everyone!
Enjoy your families and the long weekend!
