    This month's idea came from being so very over winter and all that comes with it. The cold, the snow, the countless layers, the heavy food, the sluggishness and even the hibernation.

    Since Valentines day just passed, I wanted to talk a little bit about love. I Love exercise. Some may say I’m addicted. I love it mostly because I’ve been exercising my whole life so it’s just a part of me.

    When it comes to food, winter represents delicious, warm, heavy comfort food.

    One thing that really grinds my gears is when I see people (especially men) posting online, telling woman to do squats so they can make their booty bigger. The only thing that enrages me more is the women who comment on theses posts asking these same people for more information.

    I spent my New Year's Eve at home this year. It was a first for me. I’d reflected a short time before that many of my past New Year’s Eve celebrations have, in my adulthood at least, been rather unremarkable. 

    This season tends to be the season of “should's”. The resolutions we should be sticking to, the workouts we should be doing and the detoxes we should be starting.

    We all get scared sometimes. Present company included. I was afraid when I moved to Canada in 2003. I was afraid to start new in a place where I didn't know anybody. I was afraid to start a new job with no friends, no mentors or sponsors. I was afraid when I wanted to fall in love.

    So, how are those New Year’s Resolutions coming along? The rum cake, shortbread and sorrel? Yeah, I ate them and thoroughly enjoyed each and every bite.

    I have this mirror in my living room/workout space. Everyone who stands in front of it has something to say.

    Tis the season! The season for gift giving and elasticated waists!
