Ice pack

Did you maybe work out too hard, or roll your ankle running or playing a sport....

Here is how to make homemade ice packs.

Get a ziplock (you can double bag to avoid leaks)

Fit 1/2 - 2/3 full with a dish soap... it doesnt freeze solid

Squish out all the air and freeze.

The Fab 15 total body workout

I did this workout on Sunday. And it was great!

It was quick (I only did it once haha) but really effective. 

All you need are some dumbbells or if you don't have those... try soup cans!

Happy Earth Day!!

Tomorrow is Earth Day so make sure you do something to help the planet!
And think about making it something you can do all the time!

Use re-usable grocery bags, and coffee mugs
Walk instead of taking your car... in the cities sometimes its faster anyway!
Plant a tree
Clean up a park near your house
Recycle and composte 

Environmental health is just as important as your physical health.
Take care of yourself and the planet!

"I don't have time to exercise"

A recent survey by participACTION shows that the reason most Canadians say they don't exercise is because they Don't Have Time.  

Yet 90% have time have time for facebook and other personal activities during their workday.

Only 1 in 5 Canadians find time in the day for physical activity.
And "find the time" is the key phrase here.

Instead of thinking about it as "I don't have time" reword it to 
"I don't exercise because my health is not a priority".....
 hopefully that doesn't sit well with you and it will help motivate you to change.

You need 150 minutes of physical activity a week for health and fitness benefits

And did you know that you can break that 150 minutes into 10 minute burst of activity?!

If you have time for facebook or a coffee break.... You have time to exercise.
if you don't think you do, its because its not a priority.
