And so 2010 begins!

First of all, apologies for the lack of December posts. The weeks pre-Christmas are always a little hectic and Joe and I were busy preparing for our vacation in Florida and North Carolina (more on that later this month along with pics!).

But on to “bigger” and better things – the newest season of the Biggest Loser. Honestly, I can’t get enough of this show. I love the premise (people learning about healthy eating and exercise as a way to – shock – lose weight), the trainers (I heart Jillian!), the host (Ali is super sweet and gets so emotionally invested in all the participants…and she’s looking totally fly this year post-baby), and the feel good inspiration/motivation that comes with watching people grow emotionally and mentally while they shrink physically! I even love reading the recaps over on Television Without Pity.

The only problem is, Joe worked at the Sens game last night and we didn’t get home (I picked him up) until after 10:00 p.m. Then we decided to “just watch a little bit” of the season premiere. Before you know it, it’s midnight and we’ve laughed and cried (okay, that was just me) through the whole show. And now we are exhausted! But I think it was just the motivation I needed to put in a good workout tonight!

Why I’m here

My name is Sonya. I live with my husband and our cat in the suburbs of Ottawa. I started this journal to document my thoughts and experiences and share them with friends, family and anyone else who happens to pass this way. My hope is that it will help to keep me focused on the simple things I value most in life and, above all, keep me writing.
