It’s my belief that we first have to be solidly decided to do something positive for ourselves, then grab any crutch you need in order to achieve the final goal.  Nothing will work if your resolve is weak, and anything will allow you to succeed if your resolve is real and determined. 

 

Good luck to you all, and know that a far better life awaits you on the other side.  Yours is to decide but one thing, on the other side of what?

Brian, thanks for the feedback!!!  If you have any topics you want to be discussed on the podcast, let me know!  Always open for suggestions.

Oh my god YES!! I am done with winter!  Normally I’m pretty patient and figure it will come in due time, but this year it is never ending....    I snowed down here in Southwestern Ontario this morning....just YUK!

Everyone is feeling the blues but soon enough the weather will turn better, by this weekend i think actually.

Ya it is a tricky balance dealing with a back that has taken a lot of jarring over the years.  You want to keep up with exercise as much as is tolerable as that will keep your core strong and help support the back....but you can’t push through the pain either.  Certainly a balancing act.

Feel better soon, hang in there and the sun will be out soon...i hope!!!!!!

Re: Take a walk...it may surprise you!

Jean Menzies <jemenzies@...>
 

Wow, Albert. I’m not a smoker, but this is an amazing recount of your quitting smoking journey. Very inspiring for any goal setting, or quitting anything that is not in our best interest. You should be very proud of the positive changes you have made. This message is a keeper.

virtual 5k- last day to guarantee hat

CCB Health & Fitness
 

Make sure you register today!!  This is the last day to GUARANTEE your hat for the Virtual 5k.  You can still register all the way up to the date of the walk, but I can’t ensure you will receive a hat, as we have to get our numbers in.

So….if you think you are going to do it, don’t delay, REGISTER TODAY!!



You will see a button to register, then follow the steps on the Paypal system.

Make sure you indicate you are participating in the 5k , in the section near the bottom for notes.

OR you can just email me and let me know you registered.


Get to it!!!  June 1st, we want lots of people coast to coast our walking and running “together”  :)

Just a few updates to keep in mind:

 

1) Virtual 5k- although the deadline to ensure a hat has passed, you can still register and participate and STILL be entered for a chance to win our grand prize!!    Also if there happens to be an extra hat I will do my best to get it to you, but we only ordered a limited number.  To register head over to our blog:

 

 

 

2) Podcast!  Epidsode 29 is up and episodes 30 will go up on the weekend.   We thank you for listening and we really encourage you to send in questions and topics you would love to see covered.

 

3) Coaching calls- remember that if you ever want to talk about your own fitness journey or have any health questions in general, you can chat with me directly.  Just drop me a line and we can schedule a chat!!

 

Have an awesome day and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Hi Rian,

This september challenge fell right on time.

In August, my boyfriend and I decided to change our diet and eliminate most of the bread and pastas and we replaced all potatoes by turnips.

This made me realise how easy it can be to loose weight when you think about it. I lost 10 pounds without increasing my activities since aqua-gym and aqua-spin sessions are starting back this next Monday.

Also, I realised how much better I feel without eating all these carbs and how energetic and good I feel by eating more fruits and vegetables.

The way we work, we allow ourselves 4 hours of cheeting every weeks. For example, if we have a barbecue with friends, we can enjoy a beer or burger and frises without feeling guilty. I think that by allowing cheet hours, we don’t feel the stress of changing all our diet and thinking all the time if we can or cannot eat something.

This also makes me realise how much bread I was eating. Toasts at breakfast, sandwiches at lunch, sometimes desert or a baguette with pasta... I also enjoyed having French toasts or pancakes or crepes on the weekends...

So that’s how our September challenge goes. It began in August before I heard the podcasts and I’m very satisfied to not only loose weight but feel much better in my body digestionwise.

Karine,
Sorry for the late reply, was away for the weekend.

That is AWESOME news on your new eating habits…and I most certainly agree.
Carbs are not “bad” , however the amount most of us eat is just too much.  We need that nutrient for sure but not in the quantity.  Unless you are like myself and do LOTS of endurance sports (and even we don’t need as many carbs as we seem to think), your carb intake should be lesser and focus on fruits, veggies Complex carbs) and proteins.

I think you are making all the right steps in your lifestyle changes and I’m so glad you shared!!  If you don’t mind I may mention you in some of my videos or podcast upcoming.

Keep it up!!!!

Albert Ruel
 

Hey Karine, we too have recently done a similar thing in the food department, and since returning from a 5-week vacation on July 2 I have lost about 12 pounds.  We’ve also registered to walk the half marathon in Victoria on the Thanksgiving Weekend and I hope to be carrying around about 10 pounds less than what I’m carrying now.  Does anyone else want to join us in Victoria?  It’s a lovely walk through downtown, Beacon Hill Park and along the water’s edge on Dallas Road to finish between the BC Legislative buildings and Victoria’s inner harbour. 

 

Thx, Albert
