Ever since I was a child in school September has always felt like a new start, another chance to do my best.  September has always symbolized back to routine and with summer coming to an end so does life at the cottage, family camping trips and barbeques and patios with friends.  I know you are all with me when I say that, once again, I indulged this summer. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm very concerned about my mother-in-law's fitness level. She has always been a larger woman, but over the last few months she has gotten incredibly lethargic and is quite obese (probably in the 250lb range). She spends her days sleeping and watching television. There have been quite a few life changes for my in-laws over the past year, including my father-in-law losing his job, and I suspect that these changes have caused some anxiety and depression, which seems to only exacerbate the issue. Full Article

When I am working towards a goal, whether it’s in the gym, in a race or in life, I always figure out exactly what needs to be done in order to achieve my goal and then I create the plan, breaking it into months, days, hours and even minutes.  That way I know every single day exactly what I have to do to get closer to the desired outcome. Full Article

During college I gained the freshman 15, the sophomore 30, and then some. The summer before my senior year I finally got my act together and lost a good amount of weight. 8 years later and I found myself weighing more (234lbs) than I ever have before. I've managed to lose 21lbs since April by limiting my daily calorie intake to 1200 calories/day (I sit for 8 hours at a desk job) and 24g of sugar/day. Full Article

Hi Hayley, After a few years as a busy single mom, I have recently started working out again, and noticed how much more I can do in the gym now that I’m a little larger, eat a little better, and have spent the time carrying around my child/their toys/groceries for two/ etc… without help. Full Article

I love the Olympics.  Whether it is the Winter or Summer Games I find myself glued to the television from start to finish.  I love the stories that unfold during the Games, the stories of athletes overcoming obstacles, athletes who make history, athletes who miss their glory by seconds and inches, the heartaches and the celebrations and as spectators we never know what is going to happen in the two weeks while we are cheering on all of our athletes who are representing our country. Full Article

Hi Hayley, My question is for my husband.  My constant nagging him to exercise hasn’t been working, but a trip to the doctor who told him, again, that he needs to lose weight has motivated him to say we can start going for bike rides together.  Yay! So that’s starting small and hopefully a bit of exercise will motivate him (and me) to do more. Full Article

I am currently on my summer vacation, two weeks with my family in a place I like to call the best place on earth. It is my family’s summer cottage back east and I have been coming here since I was born.  This is where I let my hair down. I relax, I sit still, I read, I eat and I enjoy the marvellous sunshine. Full Article

Hi! Just back from the gym, where I do my own intense spinning class because I only have 30 minutes and I go for it! Hills, sprints, hill sprints ... anyway ... I am a sweater, I mean I have always been one to sweat and often buckets. I notice especially on the stationary bike, likely because I'm not moving so there's no breeze, I really sweat, especially from the wrists, elbows, shoulders and I’m sure a lot of other places but they are clothed. Full Article

This may seem like something that someone who is training for a running event may not need to worry about but all too often beginner runners will gain weight while training for their first half marathon or other running distance.  You might be thinking that someone who is running 3 or 4 days a week plus cross training would find it hard to keep weight on but this is a common problem. Full Article
