Team Myles Ambassador

I’m a Team Myles Ambassador for 2021! I am very excited for this opportunity, because I had fallen off of the consistency wagon when it came to running. My mental health was suffering as a result. When I saw the moment applications were open, I jumped on it, not knowing if it would be accepted. …

Running? Really?

I ran an actual “in person” race recently. It was a small event, with three different distances (4km, 6km, 8km). It was a lot of beach running. I did the 4km distance because who am I kidding, my running has been subpar lately. I knew in my inner being that the smallest distance would be …

Bend in the Road

Sometimes my depression veers off course. It surprises me by taking its foot off the gas. I start feeling not so tired, not so hopeless. Now is one of those times. I am not in bed so early. I can stay up and get things done. Although getting out of bed is still hard, I …

Weighted

I’ve gained weight. Gone up 4 sizes as a matter of fact. It’s happened over the past few years. As part of my journey to self acceptance, I’ve struggled with this extra weight on my body. Societal issues with body image has done a number on my head, and it hasn’t been easy accepting where …

So Done

Full of fatigue. Lacking motivation. Fighting my depression. Navigating this pandemic. I’m so done. Done with feeling like I can’t do anything about how I’m feeling. I go in circles. A time where I’m feeling good and think I have everything under some semblance of control. I can handle a lot of things I cannot …

Covid, Peri menopause, and Jeans

So, some of us have gained weight during Covid (all that home made bread and bagels). Some of us have gained weight thanks to the lovely stage of life called peri menopause. I fall mostly into the second category. My love for bread doesn’t help, mind you. This makes my struggle with mental illness all …

Self Love? How About Self Acceptance

I’ve read and heard enough about self love lately. I’m on another path right now. I’ve also overcome the thoughts that I am not good enough to be loved. I am not only good enough, but worthy. What has been important to me this past year has been self acceptance. Accepting not only who I …

Changes

“I’m going through changes”. Ozzy Osbourne This week I uncovered some of my lost soul. The part I lost through my toxic marriage. I found my love of learning, my love of self discovery, and my desire to move forward. I have started reaching out to the universe. I have decided that I WANT to …

I Just Don’t Know Anymore

I have had to stop asking myself “What will today bring?” The past few months have had it’s bad, and it’s good. The world is still in a pandemic and my neighbours to the South are imploding. I am glad the big orange cheeto is on his way out the door, but holy moly guys. …

The Cold, The Covid Test, and My Anxiety

This week was a little stressful. I woke up on Monday morning with a chest cold and a cough. I took the online Covid assessment of my local health authority and was advised to get tested for Covid. I booked my test online and was lucky to get an appointment that morning, within 2 hours …
