Successful Saturday’s…

Hope everyone had a good week and stayed on track with their diets and meal plans. I stuck to my juicing diet and have kept myself accountable by posting daily pictures on my Instagram account. I have had a lot of people ask me what vegetables and fruits I use, as well as what else … Continue reading

Juicing…

Dave and I started a juicing lifestyle which we will try to implement into our everyday routine. We are going to monitor our bodies and write any changes that may occur while we begin this process. I’ve had digestive issues for as long as I can remember and have been tested for a number of … Continue reading

Back to the Basics…

Two months have gone by and I have been a busy body and have played host to several guests this summer. I have had my family visit twice, my girlfriends stayed with me for a week and then mine and Dave’s mutual friends stayed with us for a couple of days. It was a busy … Continue reading

Chug-a-lug…

I’ve compiled three days into one… You ready for this information overload? I’ve been pinning recipes on Pinterest that I’ve been trying and have fallen in love with this one in particular. Crunchy Raw Protein Balls (that’s what she said) INGREDIENTS 1 cup almond flour 1 scoop Raw Protein Powder (or raw protein powder of … Continue reading

Cancer and Physical Fitness…

A couple months ago, a girl named Melanie approached me about discussing the health benefits for cancer patients staying physically active during recovery. It’s a subject that touches close to home as I’ve had a few family members that have passed away from the disease. Also, last week my aunt Nicole passed away from lung … Continue reading

All the flavours scream summertime, in fact I even had one of their new flavours as an iced tea. Is it time to bust out my shorts and prance … Continue reading

Clean Eating… What does it mean to you?

I’ve been asked by a friend what ‘Clean Eating’ actually means. For those that are new to the concept, it doesn’t mean running your fruits and veggies under the tap. It’s a little more in depth than that. There are several concepts/lifestyles you can follow if you want to eat clean. If you are contemplating … Continue reading

Keep Looking Forward…

I have so much to be thankful for in this world. I have an amazing family, awesome friends, a supportive boyfriend and most importantly my health. I try not to take things for granted and I am appreciative of the smaller things in life. It hasn’t always been like that. I’ve had my fair share … Continue reading

When the going gets tough…

I have stuck to my promise and went to the gym on Sunday. I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike and walked on an incline for 15 minutes and did shoulders and abs. I am able to run again, but I find my knee strength just can’t support all that pressure just yet. I … Continue reading

Winter blues…

Exercise is a great way to shed those unwanted pounds, but I’ve got to admit this winter I’ve been slacking a little with activity. I will blame it on my winter blues (although, laziness is my real excuse). I had a goal to go to the gym 3-4 times a week and as of lately, … Continue reading
