The Devines 2016







Today is Canada’s Thanksgiving so I thought I would do post on how Thankful I am to have the life I do today.

I am thankful for my husband and children for being my constant cheerleaders pushing me up those mountains at 350lbs+ and telling me I can do this.










I am thankful for my brother and his family for being there for all of my big first runs. I am extra thankful for the inspiration my brother gives me each day as a runner and for being sober for almost 10 years now. I always thought if he can do that, then I can do this.









I am thankful for all my other family, mom, sister, cousins and aunts that share my story and are constantly posting on my blog and social media encourag
me along the way.




I am thankful to all my friends for all the support, from coming out for my first 8k, my first half marathon and just constantly telling me how much I inspire them. Their words of encouragement mean so much.

I am thankful to Weight Watchers for creating a program that works and teaches people how to live a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing life.

Most importantly, I am so thankful to myself for waking up one day and realizing that if I didn’t do something I was going to die. Not a day goes by, not a run ran or a shavasana at the end of a great Moksha class goes by without me reflecting on what I have done. When I look back at how my life used to be, it makes me sad that I allowed myself to live like that for so many years. But it also makes me that much more thankful for everything that I have been able to do in the past couple years. Last night my husband said, it feels way longer since I changed because we have done so much in the past couple years. For that, I am Thankful!

I am a strong confident woman. I am a mom of 3 three amazing children, married to my BFF of 25 years, who loves weight training, yoga, hiking, cycling, and sometimes still the odd run. I am currently completing a MA in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Leadership in Organizational Culture at Royal Roads University, which will be completed in January 2020. I am currently working in higher education for BCcampus as a Project Manager for Collaborative Projects. I lead a coaching community of practice at my workplace which I developed as part of my Masters. I dabble a bit in coaching outside of work but will likely do more as I complete my Masters. I have big goals for myself, there are no limits to what is possible.
