Foodie Friday: Oct 16th to 22nd

I missed my Wednesday post, but Friday? Friday is for food! After days of dieting with nopal cactus for weight loss, Friday is one day where I get to eat anything the heart desires. It took a little while for me to remember what we ate this week. It’s come to the point where I’ve […]

Foodie Friday: Oct 2nd to 8th

It’s another Foodie Friday! This week saw just a little more variety at mealtime. We actually had a plan, and we stuck to it – make a menu, do one large shopping trip, and prep in advance where necessary. It actually seems to have worked.

I am in grave danger of becoming one of those people who Instagrams all her meals. It’s mainly due to the fact that a picture makes it easy to remember what you’ve had and whether it was notable in some way. As a result, I have a few pictures saved back. I’m thinking of making […]

A Calorie is a Calorie, but Food isn’t Food.

A Calorie is a Calorie, but Food isn’t Food.

Honestly, does this look like food to you? I sometimes joke that I’m an “amateur nutritionist”. I haven’t gone to school to attain the college credentials, and I’m still nowhere near my ideal goal weight, but I’ve done a heck of a lot of reading. Reading, watching videos from conferences, documentaries on diet (yes, even […]

Battle of the Fitness Apps!

Battle of the Fitness Apps!

December 1, 2011 by Maire in Whimsy / 0 Comments

I’ve been meaning to blog about this one for awhile, but I have this tendency to get sidetracked easily. A little while ago, my brother recommended I check out a diet app that he was using to track his food and exercise. I can’t fault him for this, as I think that’s a great idea. […]

We signed up for a membership to the YMCA this evening. They won’t be opening the gym in Saddleridge (Genesis Centre) until sometime in December, but apparently if we want to get a jump-start, we can use any of the other Ys in the city.  Unfortunately, I don’t think any of them are anywhere near […]

First, before I do anything else, I’m going to show how this month’s socks are going, since I couldn’t get it together for my weekly Wednesday update. I totally blame work for this, as the rotations screw with my brain. Robin had to remind me on Thursday night that he wasn’t going to need a […]

Happy Calgary Bike Plan Day!

Happy Calgary Bike Plan Day!

July 5, 2011 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

Today Calgary City Council passed the proposed Bike Plan, that will hopefully help get more riders on their bikes, off the sidewalk, and on the streets. While it seemed that three of the aldermen thought it was a waste of time (the alderman for our ward was one of them…disappointing), I was pleased to see […]

OMG an Update!

Yes, I know it’s been awhile since I posted.  I didn’t mean to go this long, but life has this terrifying way of taking precidence. Since my last update, I managed to finish the March Socks (by April 9th…they took awhile) and I started and finished the April socks.  Pictures will be forthcoming! I’m back […]
