Another Great Start May 30, 2011

What a beautiful morning we had today to start off our next boot camp! The forecast said rain but the only thing present was the wonderful fresh and crisp morning air and the always great sunrise. I would like to congratulate all of the boot campers on their hard work this morning. The workout they went through was no piece of cake ūüėČ I also want to give a BIG welcome to all of the new campers and welcome back those that are returning. I’m looking forward to helping you reach your health and fitness goals by providing you with the motivation, encouragement and workouts needed to reach them. See all of you boot campers in the morning for another great outdoor workout! * fingers are crossed that we don’t get more of that ‘wet’ stuff *

Define your 10 best / worst habits…… May 25, 2011

‚ÄúDefine your 10 best habits.‚ÄĚ What are the things you do every day that you really enjoy doing, give you more energy.

Then

‚ÄúDefine your 10 worst habits.‚ÄĚ What are the things you do every day that you really don‚Äôt enjoy doing, give you less energy

Writing down these two groups helped me to define whether a task should be done by me or a hired person. Everyone needs a little less stress in their life!
Try it and compare lists with some friends maybe they like to do something you don’t !

 

Life is too short May 24, 2011

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don’t.

This saying totally fits my day !
We had something stolen from our house from a teen who was living with us. We asked him to move back to his parents and informed his parents why we were asking him to leave. Just the other day we saw the item up for sale on kijiji and confronted his parents and him. The dad was not happy that we would even question his son and of course the son denied the item was ours. Now I know what I’m going to say next is crazy to most………. we are having a friend purchase the item back because either way it needs to be replaced.

So the quote above just makes me smile. It’s not about winning or losing, right or wrong. It’s about how I will feel and whether I need to waste any more time stressing over the matter.

On a side note I had the most amazing training day today. My Boot Camp clients worked so hard today it was awesome !!!!

 

A friend sent me some great “I Belive” statements. May 20, 2011

I Believe…..
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe…
That we don’t have to change friends if
we understand that friends change.

I Believe….
That heroes are the people
who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.

Have a great May Long Weekend !

 

3 Vegetables That Fight Abdominal Fat May 19, 2011

I bet you didn’t know that there is a specific class of vegetables that contain very specific phytonutrients that actually help to fight against stubborn belly fat.

Let me explain what these unique vegetables¬†are and why they help to burn stomach fat…

Chemicals that force your body to hold onto belly fat

Something you may have never heard about is that certain chemicals in our food supply and our environment, such as pesticides, herbicides, and certain petrochemicals from air and water pollution, household cleaners, cosmetics, etc can react with your body and make your body store excess abdominal fat.

These chemicals are known as xenoestrogens.

Xenoestrogens are chemicals that you are exposed to (and are hard to avoid in the modern world) that have an estrogenic effect in your body.  Excess exposure to these can cause hormone balance disruptions for both men and women. So these can wreak havoc in the body for both guys and gals.

These estrogenic chemicals that we are exposed to on a daily basis can stimulate your body to store belly fat, along with many other problems (including cancer risks in the long term).

So here’s where this specific class of vegetables comes in handy…

One of those cool tricks that I teach my clients that hire me for nutritional counseling is the use of  cruciferous vegetables to help fight against stomach fat.

Cruciferous¬†vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, etc. contain very specific and unique phytonutrients¬†such as indole-3-carbinol¬†(I3C) that help to fight against these estrogenic compounds…

And by fighting against these belly fat stimulating estrogenic chemicals, this is just 1 more step in helping you to win the battle against abdominal fat!

So there you go… just another excuse to do what mom always told you and eat more broccoli!

Supposedly, researchers at Cambridge University have concluded that it doesn’t matter what order the letters of a word are in; as long as the first and last letters are in the proper place, you can scramble the rest of the word however you like, and it’s still readable.
Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.
