During the winter months, the opposite of ‘moving’ or ‘doing’ occurs. Many people don’t feel motivated to do anything except sit inside by the fire and get warm. The lack of sun and cold temperatures prompt people to stay inside and enter hibernation mode. Growing up in Canada, you get used to long winters and learn to adapt to the snow and cold temperatures. You learn to have fun despite the harsh winter months. Still, we Canadians are always excited for spring to come!Read More
You miss 100% of the shots you never take, right? Well, when one of my sisters presented me with this offer to join her on vacation, I had to go. I’m so glad I did.I recently returned from a trip of a lifetime with my sister to Britain and Ireland. We loved it so much. My sister and I spent three weeks touring these beautiful countries on a coach with a tour group. It really was a special time, and I’m blessed that I got the opportunity to do this trip, especially with my sister.
My sister and I haven’t seen each other much in the last several years due to living in different cities for school. Since we both had recently graduated, we thought we would take an adventure before we start the next steps in our lives.
I learned so much on our trip! Here are the top ten lessons I was taught while on vacation:Read More

I had an interesting experience on the erg (indoor rowing machine) yesterday that I have to share.
I came to the gym eager for a great workout and got on the erg. It was going great, had my headphones on, and in a great mood. Then out of nowhere, around the four minute mark, my legs stopped. It was the weirdest thing, I literally LOST my drive (in more ways than one, motivation and is part of the rowing stroke).
The drive in rowing is the part of the stroke where the rower pulls the blade through the water using their legs, back and arms to propel the boat. It is a fundamental part of the stroke, as the rowing is 80% leg muscle power. Don't believe me - try rowing; you'll soon realize it's all about the legs.Read More
