Shugaa Free? Who me?

I went to my Doctor recently. No, this time I did not take my daughter and she did not Snap Chat my lady bits. I went to her in order to discuss my weight, something that has plagued me my whole life. I wanted my Doctor to give me a quick fix. To shine a…

Turning Down Food for the Gym… Am I Drunk?

So I went to the gym today. I pumped myself up (no pun intended… or was it?) all weekend and set a goal for myself to start. And you know what? I stuck to it. I even turned down a lunch invitation in order to fulfill my goal. And I love lunch. I live for…

The Moment I Knew I Was Fat

I stood on the scale, perfectly aware that I was being judged. This group of girls weren’t the loving, friendly, supportive kind that I would become friends with in the next year, these girls were malicious, backstabbing, and cruel. They lived to make my life hell and kept pulling me back in with promises of…

Making Progress

Since the last post about my weight, where I vowed to do something about it, I have made some progress. I didn’t want to. I knew why I wanted to change my lifestyle but putting that into motion was easier said than done. Chocolate tasted so good. And it really felt like all or nothing to…

The Evil Death

Some time last week I caught a cold. It was simple at first, the sniffles, a tiny little ache in my throat, nothing too serious. I could get through it with a little Tylenol and tea. And then all hell broke loose. A monster of a flu/cold/flu surrounded me with its black cloak and called…

This is the Beginning

We recently had family pictures taken and just got them back. I love them. Except for one thing. Me. When I saw myself in the photo’s I was quick to click to the next picture. At first I didn’t want to look, I shifted my eyes to my husband and daughter and kept my eyes…

Dr. Dad vs Dr. Mom

We’ve been at this parenting thing for 4 1/2 years. We’ve seen some gross things, gone through some embarrassing moments, endured heartbreak, and redirected, redirected, redirected. We sometimes give ourselves a pat on the back for our parenting style and then we walk into a bedroom with a multi coloured carpet created by lip gloss….

How do we Stop the Thumb Sucking?

This past week we took our daughter to the orthodontist, after a referral from our family dentist, for a consultation. They were concerned about her palate and thought she might have to have an appliance put in in order to widen it. Before braces. But… before all of that we needed to have the consultation…

Dressing in Colour

“How was your day?” “Good, but everyone was so surprised to see me wearing white.” “That’s becauase all you wear is black… it’s depressing, you were always sad. Now you’re happy, bright, wearing colours, and talking.” He’s right. There’s been a shift. And it’s spilling over into something so small as my clothing. Where I…
