Take that word “Can’t” out of your vocabulary! Please, do yourself a favour. Can I just take a moment and remind you that you have such a limited time here on earth, why would you waste it with a bunch of “I can’t’s?”. I’ll give you an example. “I can’t devote 3 days a week to working out”, replace that with “I am going to give myself 1hour a week to workout!” Just replace that phrase, go to the gym just once per week, just once. Yes you do have time. Stop thinking that in order for you to get ‘back on track’ or ‘back in shape’ you need to have all the time in the world to devote to working out and meal planning. Do you seriously think that those that you idolize have more time than you to get into shape? No they don’t, let’s be honest.
This rant is due to the overwhelming amount of comments I hear from people I run into that say “Oh I want to hire you so bad, but I just don’t have time”. I have clients that are moms of 2, work full-time jobs and don't have a nanny that still make it a priority to invest at least 1 hour/week to come to train with me.
You know what they say to me “this is my ‘me’ time, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, including my favourite TV show”. I am not sharing this rant because I am greedy and want more clients, I don’t care if you come train with me, I just want you to make 1hour a week a priority that you will devote to yourself; your body and your mind. Are there any studies out there that say working out, sweating, getting stronger is bad for you? Hmmmm I think not. Don’t take the easy way out people, it’s not worth it in the end.
Need a little more motivation? This past week I received so many Christmas cards filled with words of love, words that touched me and made me tear up.
“Thank you for giving me back”
“Thank you for helping me get stronger”
“I am a new woman now, thank you”
“Even when I felt I couldn’t do it, you pushed me, and now I am stronger”
I had to share these quotes as they are real, they are from confident women who are proud of themselves and changed their “I can’t” to “I can”.

Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. Join me and start moving and feel the difference. Read my blog to get motivation, try the exercises I've posted, contact me for personal training, bootcamps, workout cards or just go for a walk. Any activity is good activity.
