Warmer weather

This winter has been rough. As in lots of cold temperatures and huge amounts of snow. It’s been tough to deal with mentally. At times it felt like winter was never going to end. I had one super stressful drive home where visibility was terrible and it was really cold. It was definitely scary and I’m hoping that I’ll never have to drive in conditions like that again. I’m just so ready for spring, longer days, and some warmer temperatures.

While it’s still been below freezing here, it’s definitely been warmer, and we’ve gotten a minimal amount of snow over the last week. I’m so thankful for that. You have to look on the bright side of things sometimes. It’s already mid February, which means that spring isn’t too far off.


I’m very excited to share that I’m working again! Although it’s not in the fitness industry, I’m very glad to be making some money and working again. Job hunting is hard, and at times feels depressing, but being back at it again feels so good. I’m still looking for something in my field, so the resume sending game is still going strong. I think anyone who’s had a period of unemployment can understand how tough it is. Even meeting new people is hard because one of the first things you ask someone is “what do you do for work?”.


I feel like it’s been awhile since I last shared some of my favorite podcasts. I’ve been listening to them a lot this week since I’ve been back at work (I’m so grateful that I’m able to listen to them while I’m working), so I thought that I’d share a few of my new favorites.

  • Conspiracy Theories: While this is a relatively new podcast (they only just started putting out episodes in January), I’ve really enjoyed them so far. So far my favorite episodes have been about Area 51. They talk a lot about the facts and science behind the topics they cover as well as the various conspiracy theories, so it’s cool to hear both sides of the story.
  • Emma Fillipoff is Missing: This podcast follows the story of a 20 something woman who disappeared from Victoria, British Columbia. There’s just something about her that drew me in from the first time that I heard about her. She’s been missing several years now and there’s still no word on what happened to her.
  • The Influencer Podcast: If you’re a blogger or any other kind of online influencer, I would definitely suggest giving this podcast a listen. It’s so cool to hear from other people in the same industry who have grown their businesses. I’ve learned all kinds of tips and tricks from the people who have been interviewed.

Now that you know about my favorite things from the last week, share one of yours in the comments below.
