Check Yourself (Workout Checklist)

Check Yourself (Workout Checklist)

In honour of January being the month that more people than usual have fitness on their minds, I’d like to round that out with some details of working out that I will hope you remember to apply. Many of you will know these things, but some don’t, and some will have simply forgotten. I know this because when I run into people at social gatherings or when people tell me what they do for their workouts, as they love to do, I have that internal battle of “Do I risk sounding annoying and correcting them so that they aren’t wasting their time in the gym?” Ooh, I hate that circumstance. So I’ll use my platform here, and then when I run...

My Favourite Summer Meals

My Favourite Summer Meals

When the weather warms up, we subconsciously reach for foods that are more hydrating, lighter and cooler. Here are my favourite go-to snacks and meals for when the weather is hot and we don’t feel like lighting a stove. Breakfast: 1/2-1 cup of fresh berries poured in a half cup of greek nonfat yogurt I like to sprinkle in some bran buds or some element of starch. Mid Morning Snack: 1 apple 1 tbsp natural peanut butter Lunch: Lettuce roll-ups are a fresh, clean way to get in a complete protein and some extra greens. Use romaine instead of leaf lettuce for extra nutritional benefits, and have some fresh, raw vegetables on the side. I eat about 3 leaves stuffed...
