I am a 33 year old wife, and mother living in Rural Alberta, Canada. We live on a grain farm about 2 hours from the closest major center, which is sometimes trying.
I am picky, sarcastic, clumsy and sometimes speak before I think. Oops! 😉
You will hear me refer to my kids as Bubba, and Stinky… it’s their nicknames, and have been since they were babies.
Activities: In the winter I play women’s hockey, and do an adult tap class, mixed in with treadmill, recumbent bike, and or workout DVDs. In the summer I golf and go to aquafit and generally do more outdoor activities like kayaking with the family.
Accomplishments: I finished a half marathon speed walking and would like to do a full… maybe you can join me for it?!?
Why I started this blog: I am on a journey to be the best me I can be… this includes trying to eat as clean as possible, living as active as possible, and trying to find happiness in the every day. I’m hoping this blog will help me find the balance, and be accountable. You can keep track of my weight loss in my little badge from Myfitnesspal.com , and call me out when it isn’t moving anymore, or goes down 😛 Feel free to find me on there and friend me too!

All photos on this site are taken by me, unless other credit is given. I used to use an ancient Canon Rebel, but made the switch to a Nikon D7000 summer 0f 2011, with an 18-200 VR lens. I like that is a jack of all trades lens that can take a wide shot or zoom in. It isn’t perfect, but who am I kidding, I can barely use half the features of my camera without reading the manual!
Come and join me on my life of Misadventures! -Nikki
