I’m fit!! But, now what?

You’ve put in the blood sweat and tears necessary to get into the best shape of your life. T25, Insanity, P90X, Slim in 6 – whatever it was, you’re feeling amazing and so proud of your results. It was tough but you perservered and it was WORTH IT! Congratulations! But, now what? I’ve been there – I did P90X to get in shape for my wedding day, and once the honeymoon (literally, our trip to the Caribbean) was over, I didn’t know what to do. Continue reading →

WANT to LIKE Yoga & Pilates, try PiYo

I’ll admit it. The first time I tried Yoga, back in University, I kinda hated it. I had been a trained dancer for 13 years, played various sports throughout high school, and was generally a fit person. Yet, I found this seemingly simple (aka “boring”) practise of Yoga, well, HARD! And like most things in my life, if I’m not immediately good at it, I don’t like it. I know, I know, I’m working on it… So, at the time, I just stuck to my Continue reading →

So, how much should you be eating, anyway?

A while back I posted about how looking at the weigh scale isn’t always a good idea, but instead you should be looking at (if anything) your lean body mass (i.e. what your muscles etc weigh) vs. your body fat percentage. If you missed it, read more about that here. Branching off of that discussion, I wanted to go into a little more detail about how much you should be consuming each day. A lot of people get confused by this – and for good Continue reading →

This is what I know to be true

Well I haven’t spent all that much time on this earth,relatively speaking I mean (33yrs and counting), but in the time I have spent in the realm of fitness and nutrition, these are some things that I know to be true… – You are capable of anything you put your mind to – The glass is always half-full – You need to want to achieve your goals more than you want to do the things that will stand in your way – If people that Continue reading →

Should what you weigh even matter?

A lot of people have asked me over the years about their ideal weight goals, “how much should I weigh?”, “how much weight did you lose when you did Insanity?”….weight, weight, weight! It’s really not about the scale; truly…it’s about how you FEEL. BUT There are still many people (myself included) that love DATA. I personally get satisfaction out of seeing my “stats” improve over the course of a workout program. So, with that in mind, I highly suggest that instead of obsessing over your Continue reading →
