Kind of a Big Deal

A very Happy 5th Birthday to CrossFit Canuck!   August 8, 2009. What’s significant about this date? Not too much really, it was just the first time I posted to Blogger about starting my fitness journey. The post was called ‘Getting Ready’ (click to read) and it basically gave a little bit of a background of who I was and...

Making The Most of Your Time

Empty box, some rowers and a water bottle… Thursday (October 29) – After seeing how my body performed during yesterday’s Exercise Stress Test, I felt a whole lot better about trying to resume a normal workout schedule. I won’t lie, this whole thing has shaken me up a little bit. I was angry and scared at the thought that I...

Listen for the Voice

Last Canuck Lite with @SavannahJessie and Coach Z (@zlreyes) Monday (August 31) – All good things must come to an end. Hmm. Disagree. Nothing has to really end if you don’t want it too and sometimes there just needs to be a little break. As I sit here on the Labor Day long weekend finally getting caught up (which sometimes feels...

Eating Sandwiches, Not The Fun Kind

@SarahBassels and I post Sandwich Saturday (August 22) – I needed a night off. Bigtime. Oh, I forgot to mention that we are currently undergoing major renovations at work and as a result, the IT Boys (@phillyk007 and I) have been doing our best impression of ‘2 Guys and a Truck’ moving company. It has been less than pleasant. Oh,...

Sometimes Everything is a Challenge…

It hurt to move… Friday (August 7) – Everybody faces them, you know those little hurdles that life unexpectedly puts in your way in the hopes that you will pack it in and call it a day. The situations where You (as in Me) are expected to remain calm or things escalate (for those that know me, I live with...

You Make Friends with Salad

6am Class with our victory SALAD!! Wednesday (June 18) – It’s amazing what people will do to get some spinach. Wait, what? That’s right, the original Mamma Bear (@katieandrian) put the offer on the Facebook last night. With her green thumbs she had a plethora of spinach and lettuce and offered bags up to the 6am class. Heck yeah I’m...

Sometimes You Don’t Win

Monday Tuesday (May 19) – Well it sure did feel like a Monday, especially after all the things that were going on. Now the title doesn’t sound like one of those happy ones and you would be right. Sometimes you just can’t win the fight, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t try. One of the greatest things @CrossFitCanuck (and...

Warranty Claim

Something is missing… Wednesday (May 6) – I don’t know what the heck is going on here, but I don’t think that my parents purchased the extended warranty when I was born. Literally the last few weeks, I am not recovering and things are starting to break. OK, break is extreme, but it seems things just are not coming back...
