It’s Time To Turn Your Dreams Into Goals, And Goals Into Reality

I know you have a dream, or two, or three in mind right now. Things that you want so badly to do or to accomplish. And how long have those been a dream? A few weeks? Months? Years? Decades?

A Goal Without a deaDline is just a dream

Until we set a clear path for how we are going to achieve or obtain our dreams, they are never going to come to fruition. A goal truly is a dream with a deadline.

And I’ve got some deadlines in mind.

Friday Fitness: Quick Balance Challenge

Holy moly. It’s the last Friday in August. How’d that happen? I guess that means today is the last “quickie” workout video I have to share with you guys right now. If you’ve enjoyed these super crazy short workouts and would like to see more please let me know! We are finishing off the month with a quick balance challenge to help you build core and length strength and work on your balance all at the same time.

This video is around 30 seconds long, but I only demonstrate the one side so make sure to do it through twice in order to get both legs in!

Getting Your Greens When You Can’t Eat Them Fresh

There are three things I drone on and on about when it come to health and nutrition:

  1. Drink water
  2. Get lots of fibre
  3. Eat your greens!

Those three things alone make sure a huge difference in your health and nutrition. We all know that water is essential, and without getting too deep into it, fibre is key for not only keeping you cleaned out *ahem* but also helping to regulate your hormones (both digestive and sexual) and blood sugar. But today I want to talk about those greens!

Romaine, kale, spinach, swiss chard, arugula, bok choy, collards, and other dark lettuces are all great examples of dark leafy greens.

Nova Scotia’s 5K Foam Fest 2015

I’m finally getting around to writing about my time at 5K Foam Fest when it came to Nova Scotia on August 15th! You may remember me writing about it earlier in the summer, this was an event I had been both really looking forward to and dreading. I was dreading the long drive to and from the venue, and was a little worried it would end up being a rainy, rotten day.  It was held at Ski Wentworth, so a little over a two hour drive away from where I live. Fortunately I collected up a few of my friends and we went together which made it a lot more fun travelling than it would have been all by myself (and bonus – I didn’t have to drive!). And it turned out to be a beautiful (though hot) day so my second worry ended up being for nothing – gotta love it when that happens!

We had signed up for the 11 am wave so we didn’t have to leave quite so early, even so we were on the road at 7am, which gave us lots of time to get there, pick up our bibs and whatnot before our wave started. We also didn’t know what the parking situation would be like, and were hoping we wouldn’t have to take a shuttle to/from the race site – well we lucked out there too! We got in the main parking lot and got to watch people already on course taking the “Death Drop” which was only feet away from where we were parked.

Fitness Friday: Lower Body Burner

This week’s Fitness Friday is another quickie! The video itself is only 30 seconds, so if you have less than a minute in your day to exercise, you can still get this workout in. 😉 Of course if you have say – 5 minutes, you can do this through a few times to really get a nice lower body burn happening. lower body burner

 

So many people tell me they don’t have time to exercise, which is why I decided to make this series of super, crazy short videos to prove that
