Coming Back to My Run #MoveitMondays

Happy #MoveitMondays! How was your weekend? Can you believe that Christmas is officially ten days away?! Honestly, this month has flown by – this time next week I’ll be home in Toronto with my family, cozying up at home and enjoying my couple weeks of chilly, Canadian weather. I canโ€™t believe it! Iโ€™m hoping that…

Walking it Out Through the Christmas Madness #MoveitMondays

Who has already started experiencing some real Christmas madness? The shuffle and bustle of the holiday season has started, friends. Students are trying to finish up all their work before the holidays start (hello!), moms & dads are running around trying to get gifts for the entire family, and friends are trying to coordinate the…

Weekend Eats & Fresh Start Mondays #MoveitMondays

Monday is always a fresh start for me. Because #letsbehonest, during the weekend I like to indulge a little in the things I love.  Like in this homemade vegan pizza I made last night with friends. (*Honestly, this crust from Sally’s Baking Addiction is to die for.) Or in these beautiful Kale Chips I made…

Weekend Hikes & Walking Your Way to Health #MoveitMondays

How was your Fall weekend? It is seriously cooling down there too? I heard it snowed in Toronto last weekend and it’s really starting to get chilly here as well (*though, last year it didn’t snow at all in Belgium – a big stretch from my -30 blizzard-filled winters during my undergrad in Ottawa!). And look…

Enjoying Every Bite & Sip without the Guilt #WIAW

It doesn’t take long to know that I looooooooove to enjoy food. Good Food. Basically, all food. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But it seems that everywhere I look we are told we shouldn’t enjoy what we eat or at-least attach some sort of guilt to what we are putting on our plate. And I lived like this for most…

5+ Tips to Hit the Ground Running #MoveitMondays

As many of you know I am not a pro-runner or pro-athelete by any means.  Let’s be honest, when I was a kid, I usually was the last one chosen in gym class and up until a few years ago the idea of me running seemed like a totally unreachable and unreasonable goal. When people talked about “running”…

Enjoying Life One Eat and Run at a Time #MoveitMondays

This weekend was one of those weekends that was just great. A belated Belgian-Canadian Thanksgiving, good food, family, and an awesome 10k family race on on Sunday morning followed by post-run pasta and a movie night with J that involved popcorn smothered in dark chocolate, pecans and a pinch of pink himalayan sea salt (#yesplease)….

Coming Back to my Yoga Practice #TryAgainTuesdays

If you know me in any shape or form in real life you know that I am pretty clumsy, a bit uncoordinated and have fallen, on more than one occasion, flat on my face while walking down the street (without wearing high heels #truestory). So as you can imagine, my first time doing yoga was pretty comedic…

Taking a second to love ourselves. #MoveitMondays

I’m comfortable in my own skin. Most days. Some days are better than others and with some blips on the way, I am moving towards loving my body as it is, right now. Loving ourselves the way we are, in our own skin – period. Summer 2010, Toronto This can be a difficult, an almost…
