Here is a fun workout you can do at home over the Christmas holidays. All you need is a chair and a set of dumbbells (10lbs).
Directions: This is an "add on" workout. Each day represents the number of reps you do. Like the song the 12 Days of Christmas you will go back through the days always ending with the first exercises.
Example: perform 1 Tuck Jump, add on 2 Side Lunges and then start back up at 1 Tuck Jump. Then three burpees, 2 side lunges, 1 tuck jump etc.

Here is a healthy snack idea when deciding what to take to work or other.
I like to dip my raw veggies in hummus. These 100 calorie hummus packs are a great alternative to some of the high calorie, high fat, creamy salad dressings. The little containers are easy to pack and go! Give it a try!
I get clients asking for an example of a meal I might eat in a day. So....here is today's lunch! I am in no way perfect but do try to plan ahead and eat clean whole foods, striving to meet my daily recommended values according to the Canada Food Guide. So, here is todays lunch;
1 glass of skim milk
1 whole grain wrap with mixed greens, red pepper, cucumber, olives, feta, with hummus spread
Raw carrots and broccoli with hummus
Hard boiled egg
Greek yogurt (plain, 2g sugar, 18g protein) with a sprinkle of granola.
