Exploring Historic Grimsby Beach

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids on another little adventure. I stumbled on this blog post from In Search of Sarah about these fabulous colourful houses in a town not too far from where I live.  I packed up the kids and recruited my parents to come with us. We've lived in this area for decades and never knew this little historical area existed. So, I had to share the cuteness with them.  I won't pretend to be a historian and tell you all the amazing things about these houses but suffice to say, they were just as cute in person as they are in the pictures.  You can learn more about these houses here: Grimsby Beach - Visitor Info History and Heritage - Village of Grimsby I LOVED the colour of this home and it was just as fresh looking in person as it is in the photo. This home was stunning in person, the picture doesn't do it justice.  The kids wanted to sit on these stools so bad but I wouldn't let them! I had to remind them we were the too look not touch. But I

Are Resolutions Meant to Be Broken?

I've always been a member of the "Resolutions are meant to be broken" camp and so I've wrapped them up in pretty new packaging, labelling them as goals, intentions, aspirations, pledge, promise, and my personal fave: purpose. But still, I always broke the new fancy packaging - usually by week 3, and sometimes, before I even started/attempted to start.

Yet every year, on December 31, I find myself pouring over resolution hashtags on Instagram and Twitter, soaking in everyone's lists and imagining a world where I actually accomplished a legit goal.

And this year is no exception. Here's to another year, another resolution!

Like I've declared before (many many many times) this year I will commit to one thing, and one thing only. Getting healthy and in shape - once and for all. I promise to not set up unrealistic expectations about what "getting health and in shape" means. For me, it means losing 20 pounds and keeping it off. It means getting in some activity (30 minutes) every day. Nothing crazy or unattainable. A walk, pilates, a quick HIIT workout - anything that gets me moving and helps me achieve my goal. Healthy foods that don't make me feel sick all the time are key, with treats in moderation, and this one's a biggie: keeping a food journal to see where I can make improvements to my nutrition choices. I don't think this is going to be hard...I just have to make sure I don't get bored, sidetracked, or lazy!

Tomorrow is day 1 of 365...wish me luck!

What's your new year's resolution?
