Setting BETTER Goals

I'm convinced there's a better way to set and achieve goals which will hopefully encourage more people to set goals. So this is my experiment which I'll be sharing with you all over the next 30 days (or 25 ;)). GOAL SETTING: PROJECT - LEAD BY EXAMPLE Set Goal: Only you can set a goal, no one can set a goal for you. It must be something that interests you, something that inspires you, maybe something that you’ve always wanted to do, but never took action steps towards.This doesn’t have...

Falling Off the Wagon

So I'm back on the meditation train again. The truth is I love the feeling of meditation and being alone with my thoughts. More truth, it's hard for me to make myself do it. So I go through times where I do it everyday for a week or two feel fantastic and then forget about it. Let me know if this sounds familiar? I think at times it's scary being alone with your thoughts. Especially when the world seems upside down which is when we need it the most. I don't really beat myself up about not me...

All Natural Deodorant

All natural deodorants is something I wanted to address in the post because many of us put toxins on our body every day and don’t think about it.  A question that came up inspired by the video I posted where I talk about Detoxifying your Bathroom (shown below). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY-VZ7Y4xN4 A friend of mine asked, what all natural deodorants do you use and do they work?  I thought that was an interesting question, ‘do they work?’  It’s a great question and one we should ask...

How to detox your body and bathroom

We often think about toxins we’re putting in our body but how often do we think about toxins we put on our body?  Most of us know our skin is our biggest organ but did you know we can absorb chemicals through our skin faster than by consuming them from food?   There are tons of chemical in conventional cosmetics, which include everything from toothpaste to deodorant.  Just as the food industry is based around mass production and sales, the cosmetic industry is no different.  Not only do we ...

Protein Supplement Ingredients that you can Trust

Unfortunately I wouldn't say you can actually 'trust' many supplements in the protein industry, certainly not without reading ingredients. Which is why we got into the supplement industry in the first place. Colouring, msg/preservatives, artificial tastes, and flavours. All which create inflammation/chronic pain, digestion issues and more. As you can see we put a lot of time and effort into our ingredient formulation which is why we have a combination of fermented, organic and sprouted....

How to Detox your Body – Processed Foods

How to detoxify yourself through processed foods is a topic I wanted to cover because prevention is something I often talk about.  Our society is so wrapped around the mind set of ‘treating’ that I think we lose out by not looking for ways to prevent.   As a fitness instructor, nutrition advocate and health enthusiast I’m often confronted after someone’s been diagnosed with something.  Diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, you name it; the first thing I think when someone says “I...

Handball and two perfect strangers

raquetteball and two perfect strangers
Bouncing my ball on the way to my fav workout park I hear someone say, 'you play racquetball?' I reply with a casual, "nope". He said, how about handball? I said I'd love to play handball, if there were any courts around.The enthusiastic stranger looked around and said, 'there, right there, that wall is perfect! You want to play a game? I laughed half thinking he was joking, then he looked at me with childlike eyes and excitement like he wasn't going to take no for an answer. Regardless, I'm al...

Getting on Global News

Getting on the global news is a new experience for me.  I’ve been on tv before, I’m been interviewed for newspapers and played in some pretty intense games.  So does that mean I’m not nervous about being on tv, of course not.  Any time you’re taken outside of your comfort zone nervousness arises.  I recently interviewed an Olympic Athlete on the radio and she was nervous which at first surprised me but then I remembered, anything new or outside of your comfort zone will bring up discomfort whic...
