Mexican Moments

Hello my fellow Clean Eaters!

I am writing to you from sunny Acapulco, Mexico. I am here to judge a fitness competition. It has been nice to take a few days off from the impending fall greeting us up in Toronto and soak up the sun.

It has been busy busy at home with the debut of the EAT-CLEAN DIET COOKBOOK. I am so excited to bring this to you. It was hot off the press last week and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It will be in stores by the 25th of September so keep an eye out. If you just can't wait please order it by calling 1-866-837-6032.

Anyways folks I'll be back in the country soon! Look out for me in Miami next weekend when Jennifer Nicole Lee and I will be kicking your butt at her annual Bikini Boot Camp. I'll also be making a few TV appearances in the Florida area. Check my Website for more information.

I'm going to go enjoy a delicious Mexican-style omelet before I head back in for a weekend full of judging! Be sure to take some time to enjoy your weekend, too!

Be the Best You Can Be

Whether American, or Canadian, or from another continent today holds a special place in our hearts. The events that occurred on Sept. 11th, 2001 touched each of us in our own way. I'm sure we all remember where we were when we heard the news. Events such as this also remind us of the fragility and wonder of life.

I'd like to ask you today to remember the importance of your health and life. Be the best person you can be by taking care of yourself and giving yourself the proper exercise and nutrients to maintain your health. We set an example for others by doing so and show our respect for life. Not only will we be able to take better care of ourselves, we will be able to take better care of those around us who we love and cherish and who offer us the same sentiments.

Thank you so much to the dedicated men and women who gave up their lives for others on 9/11. To their families and friends. May their lives be honoured as you carry on their memories everyday.

Fall Is Upon Us

Hello Fellow Clean Eaters,

September is upon us! How quickly the month of August passed. I took some much needed vacation time away from my computer and supplemented by spending time with my daughters and doing things around the house. Now, it's back into a routine.

I appreciate the change that fall brings. A change in the weather (for us here in Canada) and a change in the daily grind with school back in session. I have spent the past week moving two of my daughters out of the house and into their respective schools. It has been busy, what with packing (and unpacking at the other end), painting, cleaning and decorating less than lovely student housing. Seeing the bright, shining faces of new students venturing into another year of school reminded me of the importance of maintaining a positive outlook and determination to eat clean and stay healthy!

Now is the time to revamp your workout if you've plateaud or add a new veggie/fruit to your clean-eating repertoire. Now that summer is departing us, let's use fall as a fresh start on our way to healthy lifestyles!!
