Home Workout & Prioritizing Your Health

Home workouts are awesome, they can be simple, efficient, and effective.  Not everyone is a gym junkie or has the desire to be one, and not everyone has the time to commit to a rec sports team, running group, etc… Life is busy and full of responsibilities so finding time can be difficult. But…..

Here’s the thing, if you care about your body, if you care about how you look and feel, then you need to make time for healthy things, it’s as simple as that.  If you care for other people, this is all the more reason why you should be making your own health a priority. What does that mean?  You need to move your body for at least 30 minutes every day with intention. Some days it might be putting on your running shoes and going for a brisk walk or run during your lunch break, maybe doing a workout at home while the kids are sleeping. Whatever it is, it needs to be physically challenging. Read more

Training your CORE

I’ll be honest, the extent of my core/abs training (aside from bracing with my core when I’m performing any exercise) is adding an abs exercise here and there between sets of another exercise.  I almost always pair exercises together because I like to keep myself moving throughout my workouts, so adding a few core exercises is a simple and efficient way to train another muscle group in the same time frame.

Good morning! We are into the week and I hope everyone had an eventful Monday and good weekend! My Monday was a bit of a catch up since we travelled to Canmore, Alberta for a family wedding.  Ahhhh I can’t put into words how much I love big family weddings – seriously. LOVE ❤️ I’m talking Aunts, Uncles, cousins x 100, their kids, my parents, brothers, sister, their spouses, and their kids. It’s a lot, and fairly intense when everyone comes together from all corners of the country for such a short time, but when we are all together, it’s the best possible craziness.  My heart feels so happy when I’m surrounded by all the people I grew up with, and no matter how much time goes by between seeing one another, we just pick up where we left off – we laugh, we act like we haven’t really grown up, aaaaand we usually have a few drinks 🍹🤗  Read more

I don’t really feel like this is an early morning type of question but I’ve been thinking, is it the season for dip? I think it might be getting close! If you live in or near Vancouver, you know that we’ve had about 2 full days of really nice weather, so I find these sunny & warmer days brings out the veggie platters and light bites in full force.
