Things That Are My Jam: Canadian Edition

Next week marks one year in Canada for me! I’ve learned a lot in this past year here and have discovered so many things I love about this place. I know I complain about the cold a lot, which probably leaves the impression that I’m not happy here, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. So let me give props to some of my new favorite things about Canada and where I live in the Rockies:  [Read more…]

Things & Links That Are My Jam Right Now: Fall Edition

Time for Wandering

I know I’ve complained a lot lately about not having a work permit, but trust that I’m taking advantage of the free time. In this time I’ve tried to do as many things as possible that I know I won’t have time to do when I start work again. Random driving around is one of them. I had to go into Banff the other day and instead of getting on the freeway to drive back home, I just kept driving and taking different turns. I followed signs to various destinations and ran into several I’d never seen before. I can’t wait to take visitors to these places in the future.

First… the Things:

Moscow Mules.

I’ve long been a fan of the margarita but just a couple years ago discovered the Moscow Mule. It’s been my main order lately since it’s refreshing but not too sweet (as most marg’s are when you order them at restaurants). [Read more…]

My Favorite Business/Entrepreneur Podcasts

If you’re running a business, or thinking of starting one, you’re likely constantly looking for guidance. Whether it’s advice on how to get started or proven ways to enhance performance, there are loads of “business gurus” offering their help. Podcasts have become my favorite resource lately because many experts have started their own shows. Also, they’re efficient AF. I can listen on my run, while walking my dog, on my commute, or while I’m making breakfast in the morning. Here are the ones I’ve found most helpful and to-the-point lately: [Read more…]

The following things are my jam right now…

Kentucky in 2 Weeks!

I’ll be spending a few days in Louisville in a couple weeks! Excited to teach a TRX course, see my people, and hopefully score some of the warm weather they’ve been having. See y’all soon! Who wants to go play in the park(s) with me?!

Tango and I take a 45 minute walk every day (unless the temperature is -25, then we take a 2 minute walk) and I listen to any number of podcasts. Podcasts have literally taken over from music in my life the past year and a half. I listen to them while walking, running, driving, and now during my workouts. There’s so much GOOD content out there and it’s way better than listening to any radio station. I pick up new ones all the time. Here are my latest faves I want y’all to know about: [Read more…]

It’s my jam to still be alive today… in the past 24 hours I’ve had TWO spiders lower down from my car’s ceiling while I was driving on the freeway. I was able to keep my eyes on the road, grab a napkin from my console, and smash them both, without crashing and dying. [Read more…]

My best friend sent me some great gifts this week as reminders of home. I’m loving my new Kentucky shaped bracelet, as well as this scented soy candle. It’s been a hectic week, but I’ve been glad to get to spend so much of it with my Tango. We had a couple great beach walks and the fleas are finally gone (#shoutout The Vet)! My Fit Club has officially sold out this first session and I’ve had to extend my capacity, which is a nice feeling. I’m excited to launch it on Monday. Lastly, I leave in just a little bit to head up to Canada for a weekend with my man-friend and the boys. I haven’t seen the boys since I left there in July so I’m double excited.
