7 Day No Sugar Challenge!

Here is a Challenge I put on Facebook:

OK Folks.... It is THAT time of year again. Halloween is upon us. 'Tis the season of wee chocolate bars and wee bags of chips, wee bags of cheezies, candy, and more chocolate. Some of us have already dug into Halloween stash and have had to buy more- this year I bought none and therefore have eaten NONE. You know I am all about my strategies! After Sunday there will not only be leftovers, but also piles of loot from our kids who rarely notice when it goes missing, little by little :)

It's time to get strategic with this CHALLENGE!

I am leading a NO sugar for 7 days challenge, beginning tomorrow. The only sweeteners allowed are honey, maple syrup, agave, etc and natural sugars in fresh food. No added sugar in coffee, no bon bons, ice cream, chocolate, donuts, cake, pie....... c'mon it's only 7 days!

WHO IS WITH ME?

2. Involve the Family. As schedules become more hectic during the week, plan for your quality family time to involve everyone in active fun! Get a quick swim in after school. Plan a hike for Sunday morning or go apple picking. If your 8 y…

Sustainability- Fitness for Life!

This is an article I recently wrote for Core Expectations:

It is my fundamental goal to set you up for success. An individualized fitness program is customized to your life’s busy schedule so you will succeed over the long term!

People think it’s crazy when I tell my clients that my goal is to set them up so they don’t need me. Am I on a mission to become unemployed? Hardly, but as a personal trainer I do have another mission in mind:

1. To inspire my clients to fall in love- not with working out necessarily, but with how it makes them feel! That is a significant motivator, especially as we age.
2. To incorporate fitness into the healthy picture of a balanced life; for both stress management and physical, mental, emotional and social health benefits. I sincerely believe that we will not reach our full potential without learning to incorporate exercise in to our lives.

The reality is that very few people can afford to hire a personal trainer for an indefinite amount of time.…
