Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

Well even if I have been MIA, busy as a one armed monkey and taking a time-out from CrossFit for a week, I still managed to inspire people! Is it because I am brutally honest in my posts about how I feel about everything? Either way I was pleased as punch that Ramblings of a Babymama nominated me! She inspired me to workout {when I do, ha ha}. So thanks muffin!!

  1. I used to work for Blockbuster and have a knack for being able to name a movie that two random actors have been in together {IF they have been in a movie together}. This all stems from customers coming in and saying “I am looking for that movie with that guy in it”. You don’t say. Which guy? No? Ok, let’s walk the store.
  2. I taught myself how to do Tarot card readings in high school. I have been told by more than one person that I am scarily accurate.
  3. I don’t plan on having children. I like my life exactly the way it is, married and having free time to explore other interests like my photography. And do crossfit. And blog.
  4. When I get worked on by my masseuse of chiropractor and I am in pain, I will yell crazy things, like Steve Carrel ala The 40 Year Old Virgin. I think it makes them hurt me more. “Ahhhhh Kelly Clarkson!!”
  5. I have no ability to design a space. Or paint. Or wallpaper. My sister, on the other hand, is a home stager, where all she is that. I see who got my mom’s genes for that–not me! I once painted a friend’s closet because that’s the only thing they had faith in me doing!! Ha ha, I don’t blame them!
  6. I am a natural baker. I bake the best cookies and cupcakes. Unfortunately I don’t use this skill anymore, since that is dangerous to my health.
  7. I love cats. A lot. And I miss not owning one. My husband is allergic and thus I gave up my favourite animal for him. But don’t think I don’t pet the shit out of other people’s cats or watch a ton of cat videos on youtube!!


  1. Simple Thoughts–I crossfit with the woman who writes this and I always enjoy reading what she has to say!
  2. Play Life Out Loud–another Canadian who crossfits and works in retail!
  3. Peonut–this lady has struggled with her eating and working out right along with me and we don’t even live close to each other. I love reading her blog.
  4. A Little bit of Sugar, a Lot of Spice–this is my friend Hayley’s blog. She writes in it when she feels like it and mostly about Whole30 stuff. She’s awesome.
  5. Crazy Catfitter–her blogs always make me laugh and she has cats in them a lot! Win win!
  6. Sophiologie–she writes about the things I think but don’t always have the guts to say. I love her opinionated, feminist blog.

Please enjoy these blogs and take the time to enjoy life! It’s too short to take everything seriously.
