Words would fail me if I even tried to describe how much they mean to me and how lucky I feel to have had breathtaking encounters like this. You have to see it for yourself. Out in the wild, where they belong. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ’™ . . Turn up the volume to hear a little squeak. This is a member of the A35 matriline though I'm not sure which unfortunately. . . . . #Vancouverisland #vanisle #Canada #BritishColumbia #pnw #westcoast #fuckseaworld #hellobc #explorebc #emptythetanks #whalesunderwater #beautifulbc #travelbc #orcinusorca #canadaswonderland #kayaking #ohcanada #wildlife #NRKW #blackfish #savethewhales #orca #TurningTheTide #wanderlust #vanislelife #nofishnoblackfish #vitaminsea #thegreatoutdoors #shareourcoast #killerwhale @orcaspotlight @whales_orcas @theybelong_inthesea @wonderfulvancouverisland @sharevancouverisland

Time for something a little different than the usual. This image was made back in the summer as part of an experimentation with large expanses of negative space. I think it works reasonably well but I'd be curious to hear what you think. #mountarrowsmith #mabri #mabr #photographer #olympusem5mkii #olympusomd #em5mkii #neverstopexploring #exlpore #getoutside #westcoast #leftcoast #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwestcollective #vancouverisland #vanisle #vanislelife #centralvanisle #bilderby

Sanity Sunday. Trying to get a bit of it back after one heck of a busy week :) thank you @tofinobrewco for the phenomenal #coffeeporter thatโ€™s saving my life right now. Looking ahead to a fabulously busy next week with Christmas parties at several Nanaimo offices, as well as a few home events! We still have NYE open if youโ€™re looking to take a load off yourself, and leave the heavy lifting (and pouring) to us! . . #holidayparty #nye2018 #newyearsbartenders #newyearseve #nanaimobc #vanislelife #yourtribeishere #holidaybartender #beerbath #vanisleproud #bartenders #happyholidays #nanaimoviews #christmastime ๐ŸŽ„ #breaktime #beerbreak

A throwback to the spring race series out of Maple Bay, BC. I feel that the image gains strength in monotone compared to its colour sibling. The patterns of wind on the water are more apparent and the sails take on more shape. #maplebay #sundaysailing #raceday #photographer #olympusem5mkii #olympusomd #em5mkii #neverstopexploring #exlpore #getoutside #westcoast #leftcoast #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pacificnorthwestcollective #vancouverisland #vanisle #vanislelife #centralvanisle #bilderby

Did you know we treat Toenail fungus? This is a common condition that people suffer in silence, not knowing we can help. With our excel HR laser, we are able to eradicate this pesky problem and stop you from hiding your feet all winter. Laser treatments attack fungus with an intensive, focused beam that kills the organism directly.ย Several treatments may be needed, as it is possible to re-infect your nails with fungi that have survived on other surfaces on your body or in your home. Three to five sessions are generally necessary, though it will vary on severity and age of the fungal infection. . . . #toenailfungus #barefeet #footcare #footlove #campbellriver #campbellriverbc #discovercampbellriver #campbellriverlife #vanisle #vanislelife #vancouverisland #vancouverislandbc #spalife #sagespa #laser #cutera #courtenaybc #comox #comoxvalley #courtenay

Today was a rough one. I was tired from being up with Elliot last night. I was sore from yesterdayโ€™s leg workout. I fought traffic to the mall, through the mall and back again. Elliot is teething and all sorts of grumpy. I was grumpy with Ben for all the wrong reasons. I had nothing left to give anyone let alone myself. ~ ~ So before we went to a Christmas gathering, I took my Netflix of workout programs, found a yoga with meditation and hit play โ™ฅ๏ธ ~ ~ When I was done I felt like myself again. I had spent sometime just on me. I just needed to give back to myself. And maybe I am still not a 100% but I am 90% back. And tomorrow I will not let it get to that point again. ~ ~ ~ #givebacktoyourself #pourintoyourself #fillyourcup #selfcarecoach #selfcaremama #mytimes #momtimeout #canadianmom #canadianmama #3kidsmama #momof2boys #postpartum #7monthspostpartum #sahmlife #nanaimobc #centralvanisle #vanisletrue #vanislelife #sahmboss #sahmom #sahmomlife #crochetingisfun #yogamoment #

Happy Saturday! My favourite part of this time of year is getting the chance to catch up with people I havenโ€™t seen in ages. My least favourite thing is the level of stress you see people struggling with. Doing my part to ease the holiday strain by making sure Iโ€™m sharing as many smiles as I can!

Finished off the week with a killer workout. Iโ€™ve been adding more LISS (low intensity steady state) into my workouts as a warm up because Iโ€™ve been indulging way to much in the treats so needing that extra calorie burn is exactly what Iโ€™m looking for right now ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Hereโ€™s how this morning went: โ€ข 30 minute incline walk ______ 1๏ธโƒฃ Superset x4 โ€ข 12x tricep extension โ€ข 12x tricep push down ______ 2๏ธโƒฃ Superset x4 โ€ข 15x bicep curl w/barbell โ€ข 15x bicep cable curl ______ 3๏ธโƒฃ Superset x4 โ€ข 20x straight leg raise โ€ข 40x mountain climber ______ I did a few more exercises but I canโ€™t give away my whole workout ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… Donโ€™t forget to bookmark this for later!

Who else is ready for a long winters nap? Did you know that the invention of electricity is part of the reason we are workaholics today? Back in the good old days we worked by the light of the sun. People rarely wasted precious candle light for too many hours because it wasnโ€™t sustainable! I vote we slide back into that pattern, work while the sun is up & snuggle into a nap when it drops out of site. Should I start a petition? ๐Ÿคฃ

I am a people pleaser through and through. I care a lot about what others think of me. Is this a bad thing...not always but it can be. It can make you second guess every dream, belief, choice you make. ~ I have been working on not caring as much. This DOES NOT mean I donโ€™t give a S*** its just means if I know that my choices benefits me, my family, or my friends why would I care about others opinions? ~ I have a dream. My dream is to build my business, my passion! to the point of where I get to stay home and raise my son. ~ I know there are women out there that want to go to work, want to be lawyers, doctors, managers, have a their dream career and that is great! You are AWESOME for showing your children that moms can have careers too! And that it doesnโ€™t make them any less of a mother. But it also doesnโ€™t make me weaker, less strong, or passionate just because I want to be at home. I have to work just as hard to ensure that me staying home isnโ€™t causing my partner any stress, that we are financially stable enough for me to be home. ~ So when others tell you their dreams, beliefs, goals, no matter how small or how big, support them! No matter what your opinion is. Your opinion is none of their business. ~ #ihavegoals #ihavedreams #noselfdoubt #dreambigworkhard #canadianmom #canadianmama #sahmboss #sahmdreams #sahmlife #sahmstyle #mompreneur #westerncanada #centralvanisle #vanislelife #vanisletrue #7monthspostpartum #thisismydream #rachelhollisquotes #girlwashyourface #selfdevelopment

This week has been a write off for following a program ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve decided to do some of my fav workouts and lifted heavy tonight, OMG I missed lifting! ______ As of Monday Iโ€™m starting fresssshhh. Still trying to figure out which program to do, but only time can tell. Just because life got in the way the past week doesnโ€™t mean I give up and put away the sneakers.
