Goodness me!


Contrary to what you might believe, I am alive and surviving the Canadian arctic thus far. Today I walked to work (25 minutes) in the -20 weather (celsius, with wind chill) and I was so prepared that I got SWEATY. Like that kid at school still wearing a snowsuit in April. That is how I measure my winter preparation success. CRUSHING IT.

In other news, I have not run once since the Hamilton Half Marathon. Not once. I planned to take a week off, but one became two, and two became 2 and a half., which will probably become three. #SORRYCOACH. We are so busy trying to rent out our current house, get ready to move into our new one next weekend, plan the wedding, working, etc,

I just haven’t bothered to stretch myself so thin as to go run in blizzards. The good news is I plan to buy a treadmill for our new place, which I will then use to become the next RUN EMZ.  HAHAHAH. I’m hilarious.

No on to my point… a couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending an event at Goodness Me! Mississauga with my local blogger besties, Angela and Jess (my personal pace bunny). We had so much fun chatting away, meeting new bloggers and learning more about the Goodness Me! brand.


Goodness Me! is a local family owned and operated business in Ontario. Currently there are 6 open stores, with 4 additional locations opening soon. So what makes Goodness Me! special?  Janet Jacks, the founder/owner, in addition to her lovely daughter Emily, really demonstrated their deep understanding and passion for health and wellness. They made it clear that they are highly involved in all aspects of the store. They even go so far as to check the label of every product themselves, before it hits the stores.  You will only find the best products on their shelves! The stores also happen to be beautiful and so much fun to shop in!
