Have a great day!
What a gorgeous day here in Vancouver today!
Sunshine really encourages and motivates us to get off our behinds and get something done.
Get outside and enjoy the extra vitamin D; the sunshine vitamin. Do some yardwork, go for a walk or bike ride, or just get moving outdoors today.
A half hour walk can be invigorating even if you are not moving really fast. You can make it a social occasion by inviting a friend.
Whatever you do, try to be active every day. The more you do, the more normal it will feel to be active regularly.
Stay Fit over the weekend
Here is a quick video on staying fit over the weekend. I hope it is useful for you!
I hope you are all doing well today.
I wanted to share with you a quick and simple 8 minute interval training workout video.
Perfect Fit Personal Training 8 Minute Workout
If you are short on time but want a good workout, this video is for you! If you want to extend your workout and make it longer or harder, then repeat the video two or three times.
Interval training is a very effective way to burn calories and fat. It’s also more fun than doing eight minutes straight of the same thing; for example running or stationary aerobics.
I hope you enjoy this 8 minute interval training workout. I would love your feedback!
A great “Men’s Health” article on why your desk job is killing you.
Even if you exercise regularly, you are seen as “inactive” if you are sitting the other 10 hours per day.
Why your desk job is slowly killing you.

Lower Body Interval
Feeling tight, stressed, uptight?
I found this great yoga stretch that is so relaxing…what a great way to end your workday.
You can do it in bed or on the floor.
Personal training; the best way to get off your rear end and get in shape! With the help of a professional, certified personal trainer, you can get motivated, get excited, and get fit.
If this is not in your budget, however, then small group training may be the best thing for you.
With a group of 2-3 people, you can lower the cost, but still get great benefits of a more tailored and personalized fitness program.
Each person helps with the cost (split 2-3 ways) and everyone wins.

Your scale gives you a number, you feel a certain way.
A lower number? You probably feel pretty good. Your mood just changed for the better; it’s going to be a good day!
A higher number? You may feel disheartened, you wasted your time dieting/exercising, you feel discouraged.
Your number on the scale does not tell the whole story, however.
What is your body fat percentage? Do you have a lot of muscle? Are you tightening up and toning more than you were two months ago?
You need to look at the big picture when it comes to your weight and body composition. The way your clothes look tell the tale better than a generic number on the scale.
I found this photo on line and it really speaks to this:
