• WOW (Workout of Week)

    Every Wednesday will involve a WOW (workout of week), where we will post a workout, commit to sharing our personal results on our Facebook page and would love to hear how your WOW goes as well. Every person’s results will be different, this is not a competition, just a way to keep each other accountable and celebrate our commitment to move with purpose. Our philosophy is ‘we may workout on our own, but we’re never alone,’ thanks to the online space we are able to stay connected and feel a sense of community. If you enjoy the weekly workouts and choose to take it to the next level, we do…

  • #WLFMroadtrip Phase 2 Kelowna Update

    ‪#‎WLFMroadtrip‬ Phase 2 Update: We departed Vancouver July 1 for Kelowna with plans to leave by Wednesday, but we are still in Kelowna. Thankfully the bonus is extra time with family! We wanted to share that things don’t always go as planned, even when you think you have all in order. (and that’s ok) Quick rundown of our past few weeks… Prior to heading to housesit in North Bend, Washington, we had our X5 fully serviced.

  • Pursuit of Happiness or Pursuit of Me: Why not both!

    The waves of emotions still ebb and flow as people continue to reach out with words of encouragement and empathetic comments. It’s been a several weeks since publishing my article, “Seeking a Life Free of Addiction Started with a Choice“, and the messages keep coming.

  • TSN Burgers

    Burgers have become my friend! The majority of my life I have been hesitant to cook burgers at home. Handling raw meat for one, but also the hassle of BBQ’ing (starting it safely, ensuring we don’t burn down the house, and hoping it’s not raining outside – I know I am crazy). But our family LOVEs a good burger, yet for some reason’s beyond the BBQ I had yet to feel confident on not creating dry hockey puck patties or have them crumble and fall apart through the grill until… I remembered my dad put in an egg, some spices and a dark sauce. So I used steak spice, worcestershire…
