I was recently sent these snack bars from Manitoba harvest for a review and I’m so glad! I love quick, healthy snacks on the go, so I thought these would fit in nicely with my busy lifestyle. I was a bit hesitant because I am not all that familiar with hemp and its benefits. When I think hemp, I think of the stuff I made jewelery out of as a kid, doesn’t sound very appetizing!
The start of the new year was also the start of a new eating program for me. As a busy mom, personal trainer, and fitness addict, my food consumption wasn’t enough to sustain the amount of energy I was putting out so I knew I had to make some changes. Let me say this….eating MORE food is sometimes harder than eating less! Before, I would skip breakfast if I didn’t have enough time in the morning or was distracted by my daughter and not even notice, But now, skipping breakfast is a big problem. After getting used to eating 5-6 times a day, not eating in the morning makes me very HANGRY. I made these great little egg cups last night and they reheated so well! Give them a try and pop on over to instagram @fitmamasb to let me know what combination of ingredients you liked best!
So I have a confession, I am addicted to yoga pants. Now before I go on, I must admit that I have a bit of an obsessive way about me. For example, when I was interested in colored pens I had to research and try all the different brands to see what ones were the best. When I was into sewing, I got a whole bunch of different fabrics so I could practice on different materials and make little useless headbands for my daughter. My obsessions are often short lived, but they always serve a purpose and are fun. My husband likes to say I am a hoarder, but I like to think I just have nice ‘collections’ of stuff. Regardless, the biggest collection I’ve had to date is my closet of workout clothes.
Superfood smoothies delivered right to your door? Yes please! When Jenna at Green Blender asked if I wanted to try one of their smoothie delivery boxes I was pretty stoked on the idea.
If you have read some of my other posts about meal delivery service, you will know that I love convenient healthy food delivered. I also really love smoothies, so win-win!
It’s almost New Years, the time of year where everyone feels the need to ‘change’. This year, let’s forget about resolutions. Instead, let’s set realistic goals and develop a plan to make them happen. Want to know the number one reason a person abandons their resolutions? Lack of planning and accountability.
Let me tell you a story about when I first learned the importance of accountability when it comes to exercise. Almost 10 years ago when I was a young, fresh, personal trainer I got a job at a cute boutique gym by my house in Ontario, Canada. This gym was known for providing excellent personal training services, and one of the perks of the job was that I got to train with another experienced trainer myself.
Of course I was super pumped… this was perfect! I was going to be lean and sculpted while learning everything I could to pass on to my own clients. So I chose my trainer and was all ready to start, until he said, “the only time I have is 7am. Does that work?” Seven AM?! At 19 years old (yes, I was so young!), I was a full time student during the day, personal trainer in the evenings, and bartender on the weekends…the last thing I wanted to do was get to the gym at 7 am to workout. But this was my chance, and it was free, so I figured I would give it a shot.
I was there at 7 am 3x a week for three months straight. I never slept in and never missed a session because I knew my coworker would be there waiting for me and he would be super disappointed if I didn’t show. I just couldn’t let him down.
At the end of the three months I a) got in wicked shape b) almost became a morning person and c) felt super proud of myself for going outside of my comfort zone and pushing myself to the next level.
Moral of the story is, ACCOUNTABILITY is KEY to sticking with a new goal. Even people in the business (like myself) require motivation and commitment to continue a program and not just give up and go back to our old ways. How many workout programs have you started and never finished? Or maybe you have workout DVDs sitting there collecting dust, or a deflated exercise ball in the corner.
That is why my system is different. I provide one on one support with the affordability and convenience of a home program. The frequent check-ins and personalized approach help motivate and encourage my clients to succeed and never give up. My success rate is through the roof, which is why I created the Fit Mama January Challenge. I want to help motivate others to start the year off right, and see their goals through to the end. Just give me 31 days. I will help you transform your body and mind to become a better, healthier, and stronger you.
