Hey everyone.  If you haven't already read the Echo there is an article in todays paper about an elderly couple that support a community in the Philippines.  I have committed to helping them raise the items they require for the students in need.

The list of required items is in the paper.  If anyone has any of these much needed items kicking around and can donate them - I will be donating the studio as a drop location from noon - 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

Every little bit will help!

That will be your blog challenge for this week!

Blog Challenge #13

Spring Clean Your Diet!  This week I would like you to take a good hard look at your diet.  If it helps, write down everything you eat and drink and the time you eat it and anything you put in it and on it.  At the end of the week, take an hour or so and do a basic caloric review to see if you are eating way too much, or perhaps not enough and also what time of day you consume the most calories.  This can be a lot of work but sometimes just writing down the foods you eat can open your eyes as to what is going in.

There is a very popular ap you can download if you  have an i-phone or i-pad called myfitnesspal (I think).  This ap is set up so you can input all of your daily food intake as well as your exercise routine and it will break down the calories, fats, proteins etc. for you.

At the same time you are doing this, try working on decreasing the food items you know you eat or drink too much of such as pop, coffee, treats, butter etc.

Don't eliminate!  Heaven forbid!  Just decrease.   Good luck.

Blog Challenge #12

Hi guys - well, I'm not getting the response to the challenge I was hoping for so I will continue until the 15th of April and then possible change directions with this site.

In the mean time, this week I would like you to clean out your fridge and cut up a whole bunch of fresh veggies into individual tupperware dishes so they are ready to go for a salad or a snack throughout the week.  As well, do up a menu plan for dinners and make sure you have all the ingredients on hand for each of the meals.  This is a habit you should try to get into for Sundays - it makes the week so much easier in terms of nutrittion.

Good Luck!

Blog Challenge #10

Simple and to the point.  Don't weigh yourself at all this week AND do 40 crunches every day.

I am in Tofino doing a presentation to the producers of The Dragon's Den so send me positive vibes!

Blog Challenge #10

Wow, what a beautiful day!  Feels like spring and you know what happens when spring starts poking it's head around the corner - spring cleaning.  This weeks challenge is completely different - I want you to take the time to do something you have been putting off such as the mountain of recycling in the garage; cleaning out closets; take clothes to the consignment store etc.

Combine this challenge with not skipping any meals this week, especially breakfast!

Good Luck.
