Spring has just arrived and even though it might not feel like it weather wise, it still marks the beginning of a fresh new season, warmer days, blooming flowers and just an overall feel good vibe.

What if there was a simple solution, a solution that would give you a variety of recipes with pre-measured seasonal ingredients. No muss, no fuss.
Every year, the majority of us make a conscious decision to better our health. "I will eat better." "I will exercise more." "I will cut out sugar." And a couple months into the year or even a couple of weeks in, people begin to fall off the wagon. They throw in the towel and still decide to set the same goal the following year. Does this sound familiar? The reason to what seems like a broken record player is simple.
Are you tired all the time and feel like you’re just going through the motions, getting through the many things on your to-do list without engaging with them or enjoying them very much? Do you struggle to remember what happened in the last couple of days because you rushed through them? Are you rushing through life, suffering from Sundayblues, hating on Mondays, hashtagging #humpday and wishing for Fridays?
January 3 marked the official day of my journey to completing my first triathlon this upcoming summer. If you are unfamiliar with the sport, it involves a swim followed by bike ride and finishing off with a run. There are various distances from 750 m to 3.8 km swim, 20 km to 180 km bike ride and 5 km to 42 km run. It's unbelievable what people are capable of. I share with you 4 golden rules for beginning a fitness journey.
As the year wraps up, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and pondering our next goals pertaining to health, career, relationship and personal development. We ensure to establish specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based (SMART) goals in order to increase our chances of success. But there's one major component missing.
Hearing each person’s name get called out and seeing them cross the finish line at Victoria’s Half Ironman struck an emotional chord.

It's been so long since I posted. And I hate to admit that I forgot how to access my blog dashboard. As you may have noticed, the health and wellness blogging industry has boomed. I personally feel overwhelmed by the number of bloggers and health practitioners (all very talented and with a story to share) emerging onto the scene.
Last month I shared with you a few products that I discovered and tried at the Wellness Show Vancouver. After a few weeks of product testing, I would like to share with you the second instalment featuring beauty products, nutritious food and health services.
As an entrepreneur (I started a jewelry line a few years ago), I'm always drawn to what inspired people to start their own business, what fuels them and where they envision themselves in a couple of years. It such a great feeling to hear people dream big and obtain a level of success they've never imagined.
