Calling all Fit Moms and Moms-to-be

When I was pregnant with Mr. O way back when, I was given a For Two Fitness maternity workout tank to use during my pregnancy. Up to that point, I really had no idea that there was such a thing as quality maternity wear for active moms-to-be. I just assumed that I would have toContinue Reading

Time to Spring Clean with Lorna Jane

I will be the first to admit that Spring hasn’t exactly sprung around my neck of the woods. I still have about 5 feet of snow in my front yard and just recently came across my driveway for the first time since November. It’s definitely been a long winter but now that Spring seems toContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Feeling (Almost) Normal and Consciously Upsizing

I am very (VERY) happy to report that my nausea is finally starting to ease up a bit. <insert Hallelujah chorus here> After two and a half months of all day, all night, no end in sight agony, I’m finally starting to feel a bit more energetic and more like myself. I still have momentsContinue Reading

For Two Fitness Ambassadorship and Going to Blog School

Happy Wednesday! The week is almost half done! I’ve already lectured my kids on tempter tantrums, whining and dealt with multiple meltdowns. All before 7am. Awesome. It can only go up from here right?! Now that I’m expanding rapidly toward beached-whaledom, I’m super stoked and happy to announce that I am a For Two FitnessContinue Reading

I’m always amazed at the amount of questions I get about my routine, my habits and now that 3.0 is a reality, how I’m going to navigate a rapidly expanding belly. One thing I’ve definitely noticed this go ’round is how incredibly different this pregnancy is from my previous two. I know that every pregnancyContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Cold weather and a day date with my love

Well hello March. Glad you decided to stop in. Too bad you didn’t bring Spring-like weather with you. My only consolation to the deep freeze (-50C with wind) weather is that there are places in Canada that have been colder. Not sure how that’s possible but alas, this is winter. Last week, I managed 2Continue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Birthday and Olympic Withdrawal

Another week has come and gone. Last week was a short week because we had a holiday on Monday. Add that to my day off on Wednesday and a 3-day work-week isn’t too shabby. The downside is that 5 days worth of work still needs to be done. I was definitely ready for the weekend.Continue Reading

Mayhem Monday: Back in the Groove and a GIVEAWAY from Sears PureNRG

I seriously have been spending so much time on the couch this past week. I can’t help it. Olympic fever runs high in this house. I love watching the games. It’s ironic that I normally don’t give about 99% of the sports in it a passing glance any other time but add some medals, nationalContinue Reading

Sears Announces the Launch of PureNRG Active Line (review)

***Disclaimer: Sears Canada provided me with 3 outfits to review in exchange for posting my thoughts on their new PureNRG line of activewear. No monetary compensation was received and all opinions are my own.*** I grew up in Sears. My mum did almost all her shopping from there and I have many memories of gettingContinue Reading
