Planning is Key
I am a perfectionist. Some would call me an overachiever. I like to be good at whatever it is I am doing. I have learned over the years that to be good at something, you have to have a good plan. I have also learned that it is so easy to get caught up in the planning and never make any progress. Planning for lasting change does not have to take a long time, but it does take a few key factors.

The Ride is Over!
Enough is enough! How many times am I going to "do better", "start tomorrow", "work on it", or "get my act together"? I will do good for a week or two; eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and working out. Then, I slip. Something happens, like an ice storm that shuts the state down for a week, and I get lazy and complacent. I tell myself that I will start again tomorrow. Tomorrow will be "the day". The cycle continues to go on and on
Why Running Outdoors During the Lockdown is Life's Greatest Panacea.
oing into March 2020, my already precarious existence was about to take a turn for the worse- a job loss and the plans that had been carefully made- in the aftermath of this life-changing setback- which involved travelling and the purchase of merchandise to commence a new business, were all blown to smithereens.
The Avid Lifter's Post-COVID Return to the Iron
These writings are a bit back logged so I'm catching up on uploading. Week one was mostly getting back into the feel of lifting weights again. Didn't want to put too much stress on my joints too quickly, but also wanted to get a gauge of how much I can lift. So week 2 will be basic working sets up to 8 reps. I do a 6 day per week, push/pull/legs split. Each split has two different days, so the workout week goes Push 1/Pull 1/Legs 1, Rest, Push 2/Pull 2/Legs 2. This split gives you enough variation that your body doesn't get accustomed to the workouts, with enough structure to hit each muscle group effectively.
The Avid Lifter's Post-COVID Return to the Iron
This story will serve as part of a series, where I will be be following along my journey of getting back into the gym, after COVID caused closures over the last 10 months. While getting back into the gym has been great, I noticed I was feeling lonely without my former roommate hitting the weights with me. So this journal will serve as my lifting companion. Over the next 10 weeks (the length of a quarter at a University) I will be trying to return to my past lifting glories.

5 Things I've Learnt About Myself Since I Started Working Out
I’ve had an up-and-down relationship with exercise. I’ve spent most of my life hating it and resenting myself for not having an ideal (read: highly unrealistic and airbrushed) body. That mixed with an intense sweet tooth always left me feeling scared of working out. The chances for failure were so darn high. I had stints where I spent time at the gym, but I always ended up binging on sugar afterwards, as though to reward myself, and I was always mad at myself for not working hard enough to get the (toxic extreme) body type that I so desired.
Exercising At Home
This morning I forced myself out of my cozy nest and made myself a coffee while I watched CTV Newsnet. After my second cup I took a deep breath and said 'Get it done girl'. I pulled on my new pair of Lululemon capris and an old t-shirt. Grabbing the overflowing basket of dirty clothes, I made my way downstairs. I threw in a load of whites and turned on the lights to my rumpus room. Stepping over the mostly-done fifteen hundred piece puzzle and Lego world that was created last week, I grabbed my shoes, turned on my TV and got to it.

Maintaining Bone Health
Gnarly fact: Pound for pound, your bones are 4x stronger than concrete. Pretty cool, right? Now for the downer, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, peak bone density is reached between the ages of 25-30 and by age 40, density starts to decline. Even worse, our best opportunity to influence peak bone density occurs in early childhood through early adulthood, when the greatest amount of growth is occurring. If you're reading this and you are over the age of 30, you may be asking what the hell you can do about that now then.
