#MoveWithMotive: A Passion Project

I met Johanna and Moe at Toronto’s Nike+ Run Club this past winter. Brought together by our love of fitness and our desire to share that passion with others, it was a no-brainer when Johanna asked us to join her as she trains for and tackles her first-ever half-marathon—the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon (STWM) 2016, […]

Here’s To New Beginnings (And Guilt-Free Donuts)

Moving sucks, I think we can all agree. This past weekend, I packed up the contents of the ultra-girly one bedroom plus den I’ve been calling my own for the past three years and moved to the neighbourhood directly south—Toronto’s Liberty Village. My exact location may not have changed much, but this move was a […]

My Whole30 Challenge: What Failure Taught Me

On January 11, I embarked on my first-ever Whole30 challenge. For those of you who aren’t familiar, it’s a 30-day eating plan created by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, with two New York Times bestselling books behind it, designed to rid you of your bad food habits, sugar and snack addictions, and food-related inflammation and sensitivities.

Sweethearts: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve decided to spend this week reflecting on various aspects of that wonderful thing called love, from community love and self love to some healthy treats baked with love.

Dear 2016:

Let’s Be Friends

I’m well aware that each new day, week and month present us with equal opportunities to start anew, but I still can’t deny the power of a fresh calendar year to make me want to be better. And even though the feeling is usually fleeting, I do see value in taking time every Jan. 1 to reflect on […]

Update: I’m very happy to announce that I was lucky enough to secure one of the 10,000 highly coveted spots in SeaWheeze 2016. I can’t wait to yoga.run.party with you, Vancouver! Even though my fall race is still five weeks away, I’m already thinking about what I’ll be training for next. My fellow runners will understand […]

On Turning 30 And Losing Myself

It’s been nearly eight months since my last blog post and, not coincidentally, it’s also been eight months since my 30th birthday. The truth is, this birthday approached quietly and left me in pieces, and I’m only just now beginning to feel like myself again. Thirty is one of those birthdays that I’d always kept in […]

Start 2014 Clean: My January Detox

Happy new year, all! Like most people’s, my holiday season was filled with much more indulgence than I would like to admit. All my good intentions and office treat table will-power disintegrated the moment I stepped through my parents’ front door on Christmas Eve. (And OK, there might have also been a pre-Christmas incident involving […]
