What a BEAUTIFUL day! We almost didn’t go out bc I thought it was going to rain today. I had planned to bust out Rosie and the rollers and give it a shot, but when I finally rolled out of bed the sky was blue and the sun was out!! My feet were frozen before I got the tires aired up but the dogs were restless and we were all overdue for some nature time. Big time, nature time. What a beautiful ride. Dogs are happy, I’m happy, West Sechelt trails are phenomenal. .
.
Also, WHO maintains these trails? If you know, please tell me. I feel like I owe them for all the joy ☺️. Some of the best days are spent in here. So much of my happiness happens here! I know it’s a labour of love ❤️, but it’s so so appreciated. Whoever you are, THANK YOU.

I miss this SO MUCH. Making headway with my physio and Pilates training as much as possible, and still just trying to not go crazy from not lifting. It’s very cool to have days where I have no discomfort, but it doesn’t take much to throw things off track. Sounds like another 6-8 months before I’m back under the bar, but it’s ok because we are rebuilding from the ground up, learning to move properly, and the mental challenge has made me stronger and far more grateful for what I have and for what I’m capable of. I can’t wait to get back. #learning #reminiscing #glorydays #staypositive #longtermgoals #healing #rehab #pilatesforlife #focus #happyplace .

What a beautiful day. Took the fur friends for a little spin on my new favourite bike and soaked up some of the sun before stretchy stretchy Tower class with @katehpilates and a bunch of babes. Gorgeous blue sky, 15 degrees, unreal trails and crazy colours in the forest... sounds like the perfect end to November on the west coast to me. Here’s a picture of a big tree and a blue sky and some sunshine! Divine. ☀️🌲🌳🍃🍂🍁🌾💦🐕❤️🚲 @offroad_mechanical Only thing missing was you 😘❤️😘

Some days you have to wake up and paint an an expression onto your face 🙂🙃😘

Fresh out of getting 200units of Xeomin (Botox) in my forehead, scalp, neck and traps for ‘atypical migraines’. This is my second treatment with my wonderful Neurologist, and we are expecting (hoping, praying) that I will be symptom free in a couple weeks. .
I’ve been dealing with these ‘vertigo like symptoms’ basically 24/7 for just over two years. I’ve tried a few different routes with treatment, but all of the other medications prescribed have undesirable side effects. Like sleeping for 14+ hours every night like a 15 year old with no job. LOL. Anyway, I’m really excited to see what happens this round. He upped the dose and reckons 200units is the sweet spot. Can’t wait!!
.
.
Feeling very lucky that I have access to this treatment. It costs me about $800 every 2-3 months BUT, if it changes my quality of life I’m more than happy to pay it. I’m grateful that I can! I can’t imagine walking around like I do on my worst days and not being able to get the treatment I need to not a) puke on your shoes while we make awkward small talk, b) have to pull over five times on my way to work and cover my eyes and head for 20 minutes because I can’t even see anymore, or c) have to flake out on any and everything that includes lights, driving, people making noise, lol grocery shopping, because it is painful and nausea inducing. Try explaining this to people without sounding like a total snobby dickhead.
Anyway, I really fucking hope things go as planned here. All my fingers and toes are crossed. If you or someone you know are suffering from chronic migraines, feel free to ask me questions! I had to push for this treatment, and the waiting list was 9 months long. It’s not covered by MSP, but for many it is life changing!! Ok I’m going to crawl back in my cave till this shit kicks in ✌🏼❤️🙏🏼 #itsmyface #selfie #selflove #migraine #chronicmigraine #botox #xeomin #migrainetreatment #askyourdoctor #alternativetherapy #pretty #prettygirl #32aintsobad #weoldnow #canadianhealthcare #priorities #tenthousandneedles #sleepytime #kgoodnight 😘😘

Missing my Wiley little Coyote dog big time today. No matter how crazy things got she could always make me smile. If I had a bad day she’d be waiting to attack my face as soon as I got in the door. I miss her crazy spirit and her biggest heart. She sure knew how to make the best of things and show us how to find the joy when we couldn’t quite see it ourselves. #feelings .

“But can’t we go for a real bike ride??”... Mr. T doesn’t give a wut if it’s raining, he wants to go buck wild chasing squirrels in the forest with his sister! He doesn’t trust the trainer either and won’t take his eyes off it till I’m done 👀. I’m sure he thinks it’s going to launch 🚀 at any minute 😂😂❤️❤️ #weirdo

Just the sweatiest chick 🐥 ona bike, ever. Daylight savings is really screwing me around on my after work rides on these short short days, but my honey and his bro hooked me up with this indoor rig and it is saving my ass (and my mental health) right now. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

I’ve struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. It’s taken me most of 30 years to figure out the best ways to get through the day unscathed. I’m very lucky to have a partner in crime who is happy to gently remind me how happy I am when I’m on two wheels.... pretty much the happiest ☺️❤️🙏🏼

Much needed back to back Pilates date with @katehpilates at @kalijopilates in Davis Bay. Took a late morning mat class with her and then a private on the beautiful Cadillac, my all time fave.
.

My breathing is improving, my spine is getting more mobile, and I swear my body is getting longer 🙏🏼❤️✨ I’m loving learning how to move more efficiently, and without pain. More please! .

I am uncomfortable 😅
.
Mika actually loves wearing her sweaters and jackets, it’s just that I washed this wooly one on warm and now it a little too snug 😂😂 She didn’t want to take it off though, so she’s been rocking the E.T. look all day today. .
.
Swipe through to see the many unimpressed faces of Mika 😂❤️🦍

Last little glimmer of golden light?🌿✨
.

2 dogs got shafted yesterday when I selfishly took my roadie for a second big burn in 2 days... They were pissed 😠 and dug a bunch of dirt out of my beautiful money tree. I can only blame myself. Mika gets so upset when me and the big man aren’t around enough. So I quit a little early today and surprised the fur people with a beauty little dog loop. We took it easy and just enjoyed the beauty of the ever changing forest. .
.
We are lucky ducks 🦆❤️

Some days you get a flat 🚲 and you’re forced to chill out in the sun ☀️ by the ocean... until Prince Charming comes to give ya a tow 😍☺️❤️ Still such a perfect fall day for a road ride (and a ride along 😸)🍁🍂☀️👍🏼
Thank you 🙏🏼 @offroad_mechanical 😘😘

Took a little spin through #ferngully this afternoon. I thought it was going to be cold and awful but it was just so beautiful in the trees. Warm and barely a drop of rain, trails were incredible and the Autumn colours were unreal! Couldn’t have asked for more. Swipey swipe for pics from my ride 🙋🏻🌲🍂🌾🌿🐾🐿❤️
.

I’m always stunned by nature’s beauty... especially when I’m on my bike. I get overwhelmed by the crispness and saturation of colour. It feels like I’m seeing for the first time, every time. And I can’t stop saying ‘Wow, Lewis it’s SO BEAUTIFUL. It’s SO PRETTY IN HERE, OH MY GOD’. Like my eyes are going to google right out of my head 😂😂😂 Sometimes I’m not sure if it’s even real, or just totally supernatural and a bit psychedelic 🐿 ...either way it’s fine, and I super can’t get enough. .
.
If you’re hiding in your house today, don’t! It’s incredible outside. Even if it rains, I promise you won’t melt. Go play outside!! ❤️

Gorgeous sunny ride to Pilates class with Kate the Great @katehpilates at @kalijopilates this afternoon. I snapped this first shot blind from the studio after my (most favourite ever) stretchy stretchy Tower class... with a big smile on my face.
.
.
I walked in a little mangled and came out feeling like a million bucks.. and PR’d a couple segments. My body is so much more efficient when it’s moving properly! I love it and can’t get enough. .
.
Don’t get me wrong, though. Just like lifting, I have my ups and downs, and there are days when I get so frustrated with my body and my mind that I get a little closer to tears than I’d like. But with everything, progress is not linear, and working towards any goal is about the journey.... and blah blah blah growth is uncomfortable. It’s all true though. And even on the days where I’m struggling mega in class, I still leave feeling like I’ve accomplished something and I’m a step closer to being pain free. And maybe one day conquering my nemesis... Teaser. 😂👍🏼
.
.
Anyway I had a beautiful ride there, a rain stormy ride home, a fabulous class, and a yummy family dinner. Wishing everyone dog snugs and sweet dreams 😘🐾❤️#goodnight
