Summer 2013

I truly cannot believe that the last weekend of summer 2013 has come and gone. Kids are back to school today, the days are getting shorter and the chilly mornings of Autumn are among us. I must say that I did not plan on being away from the blog for all of August but when summer calls one must be ready to answer.

5,000 Thank-yous!

I just hit over 5,000 views on this little production right here!

Wow!

This means so much to me. When I started blogging I had no expectations and no idea what I was really getting myself into. But through a lot of trial and error (and some four letter words), I have managed my way and feel so blessed and loved by all of you readers. I am slowly but surely going to get more of a grasp on the technical side of blogging as I am sure there are things that I can majorly improve on. I am also going to start focusing the content more as I feel like it’s a bit scattered at the moment.

Sometimes that’s just how life goes

To mark such a wonderful day in my blogging world, I have officially joined Twitter! Which means it’s just one more way for you to stay in touch and follow along on what’s happening here at TrenaEverAfter.

If you are on Twitter, follow me @TrenaEverAfter  and I’ll share the love by following you back.

Looking forward to connecting with some more of you! Have a wonderful day wherever you are in the world.

Where will you be in ten years?

Last night was watching a re-run of the Oprah show about people who had either been on the show or in some way had interacted with Oprah in 2002. She was highlighting where those people are now…ten (eleven) years later.

Which got me thinking…

How to Turn 5km into 10km…

You keep putting one foot in front of the other, walk when you have to, push through your limits, tell your brain to shut up and just keep going. I decided that enough was enough and if the weather is not going to cooperate then I am just going to have to run in the cold…

Keeping up with 2013~!

I am in utter shock that it is April 11th today! I can’t even say where the past two months have gone because they have been an absolute rollercoaster, merry-go-round whirlwind! Just to give you an update from some of my previous posts…I went back and re-read somethings (the joys of having a blog) and realized that I may have left you hanging a bit.

Cooking to Cleanse

I know that you have probably been wondering where all my delicious kitchen delights have disappeared to and that you are all probably thinking that I just gave up on cooking completely. On the contrary I have actually been cooking up a storm these past couple of weeks.

Tyler and I started “The Plan” which is a book about how the foods you are eating are causing inflammation within your body. The focus is on an anti inflammatory diet and eating foods that your body uses in a positive way. At first I was skeptical about how the diet works and if/how it could possibly work to decrease inflammation. I myself have suffered with internal digestive problems for years and after reading this book and following the meal plan (We are on Day Seven today) have noticed how much better my digestion has been. Tyler, who suffers from acid reflux and also has Rheumatoid Arthritis ( which is a systemic inflammatory disorder) hasn’t had one bit of reflux this week nor any flare ups from his arthritis.

Wednesday Wisdom

What a whirlwind of a week its been! As February winds down and we are starting to see many signs of spring around here I find myself getting anxious for the changing seasons and warmer weather. I love the transition of the seasons from winter to spring as it makes me think of new beginnings when everything wakes up and the world starts to thrive again. It also means that  I’ll be planting flowers and starting my herb garden out on the balcony very soon~

But in the meantime I’ve spent the week focusing on practicing a few

principles of The Yoga Code; Satya (truthfulness) and Sanatosha (Contentment).

Do me a favour…

Dear friends, followers and other lovelies that are out there…

I just wanted to take five minutes out of my life to introduce you to an amazing blogger/writer/mother/woman/world traveller named Lesley Carter.  Have you ever had a dream that you wanted to come true but just needed a little help to get there? Well, Lesley Carter has a dream… to win a trip around the world! Now, I don’t personally know Lesley, but I started following her blog a few months ago and that’s when I was inspired to create my own Bucket List. Although mine is a lot different from hers it would still be a dream come true for me to complete everything that is on it.

So, I’m asking for your help…
