Yes I said it, Christmas is coming and with that is an over
indulgence of comfort foods and spirits and with that a whole pile of calories
attached too. Every year we do the same thing. I think they call this a habit.
Well let’s define the word habit from the dictionary, it says: an acquired
behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary ie.
a habit of looking both ways before crossing the street or driving your car and
then not realizing how you got to your destination. We go about doing things
without even thinking about it.
Enter the sub
conscious mind. This is the part of your brain where everything you
have ever learned has been downloaded and stored. Isn’t that amazing! Well yes
it is but it also can be a problem when it is not to our benefit, which takes
me back to the original issue of extra calories over the holidays. It can happen
without you even realizing it, because we have been conditioned to do the same
thing year after year and then we start with planning our new year’s
resolutions. Let us look at a typical day below.
First it is the early morning rise on a dark rainy day, we
hurry to get ready for work as we are running late because we hit the snooze
button for that extra few minutes, no time for breakfast so you run out the
door and hit the drive thru for a hot cup of coffee with maybe some of those
fancy things they mix up; you know, the half café caramel dbl watcha ma call it,
an maybe one of those healthy muffins. All right well you have set the tone for
the day, as the day continues you are so busy at work you can’t leave your desk
and you didn’t bring a lunch cause you were running late so you just skip it,
instead you just grab a coffee from the lunch room and as it turns out Betty
did some Christmas baking so quick sugar fix it is and then back to your office
and finish off your day. Then it’s back in the car to head home from work. When
you get there your significant other tells you about their Christmas work party
that evening which you completely forgot about and off you go to a big buffet
dinner. Now this doesn’t happen exactly like this every day but see some of the
patterns in your own life, things you do without even thinking about it. Now
let us enter another part of the brain.
The conscious mind this is the part of your brain that is
responsible for logic and reasoning, this controls all your actions that you do
with intention and in the present moment and is the director of your sub conscious
mind. So whenever you are aware of what you are doing you can be confident that
you are in your conscious mind. This becomes the programmer of your sub
conscious mind, so therefore if you are conscious, thinking with logic and
reason your day might start to look like this.
Sunday rolls around and you are planning your
week coming up, so you are thinking (conscious mind) okay let’s start with
planning the meals for the week, you stop to take a look at the calendar to see
where you are and what your plans are for the week ie. Work schedule, family
commitments, and holiday functions and fitting in your daily exercise, now you
are in the moment,” the present moment” and you start to plan for the week by
preparing meals in advance knowing where you will be, what days you have family
gatherings which always have comfort food and spirits, hence those extra calories,
but if you
are prepared well before hand and you have been kind to your body and fed it
well throughout the day and have committed to your exercise schedule then this
will help you not over indulge at all those gatherings. In doing this over and
over again we are creating a new habit which will be downloaded to your sub
conscious mind and there you have it we have created a new positive habit. I
know this may sound so simplistic but really everything we do as humans becomes
habitual and habits can be changed so work on creating new positive habits this
season and just maybe you will be able to avoid jumping the New Year’s band
wagon of extra pounds
Well we are off to a fabulous start of the 90 Day Cleanse and Replenish Challenge. As always the results never cease to amaze me and I am always excited about weigh and measure days and to hear about how great everyone is feeling. I believe when everyone reaches that 90 Day marker they will be happy they took on the challenge
The word cleansing usually conjures up thoughts of having to be close to a bathroom, I assure this is not the case with our system. Cleansing has been around for thousands of years but fortunately for us in the western world we have a formulator that has put a system together that is easy to use and simple to follow and works on the body’s cellular level.While removing toxins ,it floods the body with vital nutrients while restricting calories therefore causing weight loss in fat without sacrificing your lean body mass. Main stream diets don’t do this, they sacrifice both.
Since my initial 30 day system with a weight loss of 10 pounds and 10 inches I went directly into maintenance and have been in maintenance for a year. In the past year I had dropped another 5 pounds without any effort on my part but continued to have regular cleanse days every so often. As always I love experimenting so after one year on the system I decided to see what would happen and I quit taking everything for 4 days. For me, I wanted to remember how I felt before I started the 30 Day system. I had been feeling so great the past year with so much energy, less fatigue, sleeping way better, and more focused in my daily tasks, with greater clarity of thought. Well needless to say I will not do that experiment again it was a huge eye opener for me, by day 4, I was tired again, not sleeping as restfully as before, and I was finding it difficult to stay on task throughout the day and my energy was virtually gone. It took me a few days, back on the system and once again I experienced what I had initially felt the first time I went on the program.
As a Personal Trainer, specializing in Sports Nutrition and being on the system myself for the past year and a half, it has absolutely changed both my approach to my personal, as well as my client’s health and nutrition solutions.
If you are ready to make a change and are looking for more energy and weight loss I encourage you to give me a call at 604-783-4790 that’s the first step then you and I can find a solution that fits for you and I will coach you through the program.
There is a 100% Money Back Guarantee so you have nothing to lose but maybe a few pounds.

I and my husband Gerry recently returned from Phoenix, Arizona for the Isagenix Celebrating 10 Years Conference where we had the opportunity to share and learn with 7000 like- minded people from all over the world to discuss health and nutrition issues that affect a great many of us. We met some fascinating people including Dr. John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, Paul Zane Pilzer, World-Renowned Economist and Jack Canfield author of Chicken Soup for the Soul. The running theme of the event was that only with a combination of nurturing mind, body & soul can we lead healthy and balanced lives. Every day was exciting and filled with so much information, there was not much sleep going on between the full day of lectures, recognition awards, team meet ups and the Founders Gala Event. With that much energy shared with so many people I don’t think anyone could really sleep anyways.
I spent some time at the World of Isagenix Store where I did some shopping as well as learn from the many vignettes being done all day long. Just to name a few, Isalean Pro with Dr. Michael Colgan, Rejuvity Joint and Pain Relief with Dr. Paul Anderson, Product B third generation Master formulator John Anderson and Dr. Bill Andrews, and the list goes on.
There was a large Canadian presence and many of us from British Columbia. It was awesome to see so many from our team being recognized for their achievements in Isagenix and be there to cheer them on. The 2012 Isa body Challenge winner was Craig Coleman from Kelowna BC, way to go Craig!

Well its been 14 months since I started my Isagenix journey and what a trip it has been. As a Personal Trainer working in the fitness industry we are constantly bombarded with offerings of gadgets and systems but at the same time we are always looking for new and innovative ways to work with our clients that will benefit them and make them and us more successful at what we do.
At the end of April 2011 I received a call from a Personal Trainer Tamara Kosaba we had a great chat on the phone and as it turned out although we didn't know one another we both knew the same people interesting how life works sometimes it really is a small world. Anyway we set up a time and day to meet for a cup of coffee, well she had to cancel and then the following week I had to cancel, life is dynamic but finally at the end of May we hooked up it was a great time of getting to know one another. During our chat she asked me to have a look at Isagenix, after discussing it with her I was intrigued so that day I ordered my 30 day cleanse and replenish system.
On June 4th I started day 1 of the program and by day 3 I seemed to step out of a foggy brain which I didn't even know I was in. By Day 3 of the program my husband said to me "Can I do this?" He noticed how much more energy I had. I called Tamara and told her that my husband was going to try the Isagenix program too. We ordered another 30 day cleanse for him and got him started on the program with me right away. As he began the program he started to notice changes in himself as well. Over the next month I noticed a lot of changes, first it started with increase of energy, sleeping way better than before, I had no more sugar cravings they were virtually gone and total clarity of mind.We were feeling pretty amazing!!!!
During that 30 day period some of my clients noticed the changes and wanted to do what I was doing however I really wanted to see what would happen with me before I jumped on some band wagon, I had to know everything about the company, the products Isagenix makes and the studies done. So hence the learning began .
Well I have to say by Day 30 of the cleanse I was impressed. I intentionally did not follow the program correctly, hence (my skepticism) but it was clear, 10 pounds down and 10 inches lost with out even changing my workouts. Well with my results it did not take long, and many of my clients jumped on board with me and they too have had phenomenal success.
Stay tuned the journeys not over yet over the next few weeks I will introduce you to the products I have used for the past year and what I do on a daily basis to take care of my health and well being

Acidosis... to much acidity in our bodies.A lot of people in North America suffer from many health problems because they eat to many acid forming foods such as:
fast food and highly processed food.
carbonated soft drinks.
sweets and sugars.
coffee and tea
Also, our stress levels are higher than ever before this all contributes to an excess of acid in our bodies… And that can lead to a variety of minor and major illnesses. All metabolic function within the body produces acid waste. A healthy body neutralizes acid waste,therefore able to eliminate it from the body and resist disease. When the body's organs and cells constantly struggle to manage the acid waste some of the toxins end up being reabsorbed into the general circulation and eventually can accumulate in the joints, tissues, muscles and organs.Excessive acid waste can also clog arteries, causing minor or major dysfunction.Eventually this can lead to the entire immune system shutting down and making the body vulnerable to bacteria and viruses.Acidosis is the main cause for a wide range of degenerative diseases and premature aging.
The pH scale
Acidity and alkalinity is measured on the pH scale that ranges from 0[very acidic] to (14 very alkaline)with 7 being neutral pH. The pH of our blood is slightly alkaline and maintained within a narrow range from 7.3 to 7.4. Outside of the normal range cells do not function properly and disorders quickly appear. If blood pH goes below 7.0 (big trouble for the body)
Reduce the acid in your body by choosing foods that are more alkaline, such as:
colored vegetables , except tomatoes
Apple cider vinegar
dates and figs
This is just a small list of alkaline foods.
If you're currently struggling with weight loss, low energy and fatigue, osteoporosis, exercise performance, slow recovery you may just want to try adding more alkaline foods and less acidic foods and notice the difference in a week or 2.
I highly recommend you take the time. Go to your local pharmacy pick up some pH strips which you can get for saliva testing or urine testing and find out today what is your pH.
Take control your health and be an active participant in your well-being.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions,comments or just needs some assistance to get you on the right track. I always love to hear back.
