Today is a big deal

You woke up this morning and began making choices.

You chose whether or not to exercise, to eat a healthy breakfast, or to do something productive. You chose whether or not to eat that donut, to sleep in, or to watch an extra hour of TV.

At the end of each day the sum of your choices pushes you in a direction.

It could be pushing you in the direction of fitness and health, if your choices were predominantly wholesome.

Or the sum of your choices could be pushing you in the direction of weight gain, health issues and problems.

I find this perspective to be helpful when it comes to making a major body transformation. It’s tempting to feel helpless in changing your body when you have so many pounds to lose and so much work to do, since you aren’t able to do it all in one day.

However, by capturing the power of each day by making wholesome choices, you will be pushed in the direction of weight loss and health day after day, week after week.

Until one day you’ll look in the mirror and see that you’ve arrived at your ultimate destination: a lean, healthy and vibrant you.

So embrace the power of each choice that you make today, and allow a momentum of good choices to push you through to your goal.

Today is a big deal. Today is all you have.

Make the most of today.

If you’re not yet one of my prized clients then make the excellent choice to call or email me today to get started on a program that will supercharge your momentum towards the best version of yourself.

Let’s do this!

Do This At Bedtime

The best way to ensure that you will make stellar choices tomorrow is to plan for it tonight. Before you go to sleep, jot out your plan for the next day.

What will you eat? What is your exercise plan? What food traps will you avoid? How much time will you spend watching TV?

Write down your ideal day and then sleep on it. When you wake up take that list with you as a guide to making great choices all day long.

Make this a before-bed ritual and watch how quickly you see the results!

Rainbow Roasted Veggies

Eating plenty of fresh vegetables is an excellent, healthy choice. The fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants contained within will do wonders for your energy levels and overall health.

Here’s a simple recipe for roasting vegetables that’s a wonderful side dish for dinner. Use whatever vegetables you have on hand, or seek out the full spectrum of colors for a natural vitamin boost.

"I have gone to other gyms without any results. Since I have been coming here, I have lost 25 pounds and look forward to working out with my 9:30am boot camp family. The trainers, Jonathan and Jade are just amazing, always fun and encouraging...they are the BEST!"
Julie Szeto

"Wow! This place is amazing. I have always struggled with my weight and getting consistent exercise. Within a month the results were obvious. I lost a full pants size, had loads of increased energy, am stronger, and feel generally great! Now since the nutritional challenges I've lost close to 25 lbs and a couple more pants sizes. The best thing about this bootcamp is the positive energy from the trainers that the word "bootcamp" does not usually evoke. It's so fun. You have to try it!”
Sharrah Ellery

“#1 on my list. Great way to start the day! Every workout is varied and challenging. The trainers encourage and motivate in ways that have you working harder than you thought possible but with incredible results! I joined in 2011 and live in Burnaby but I won't go anywhere else!”
