With Thanksgiving coming up I thought I'd offer some Thanksgiving Holiday Nutrition Tips which can be used during any holiday season. 

This is a difficult time of year for many with so many temptations right in our face, which lasts all day for some. Then the next day with treats, desserts and leftovers.

It's important to understand we're developing habits right now, many in which that are unhealthy. So when it come to make lifestyle changes we find results come that much harder because of the habits we're developing right now.

Show Notes:

- Eat before you go

- Bring something healthy to eat

- Avoid deep fried appetizers 

- Know that you don't 'have' to drink just because everyone else is

- Fill your plate with veggies first or fill your first plate full of veggies then go back for more

- Avoid the all day marathon of overindulging. If possible stay for one meal.

- Plan a meal for when you got home

I thought I'd try a different format on the show this week. We have so much great content and so many incredible guests I thought we'd reach back and pull out a couple fantastic interviews on Stress to help you understand how to reduce stress in different ways.

I brought back Dr. Ciaramicoli author of The Stress Solution to share some of his tips and insights with us. Briefly Dr. Ciaramicoli is a licensed clinical psychologist and the chief medical officer of soundmindz.org, a popular mental health platform. He has been on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and chief psychologist of Metrowest Medical Center.

And we've also have Rick Titan who is the author of Crush Stress, and has first hand experience on living a stressful lifestyle as a professional athlete which has brought his to teach others how to reduce stress.

I recently took a trip to the Big Apple and I had such an incredible experience I wanted to share it with you. The buzz of the City that never sleeps alone is something I've never experienced before. It actually took me a couple days after I left to realize how much actually goes on there.

When you're in it, in most things in life it takes awhile for you to take a step back and realize what actually happened.

From homeless people to those that lived in apartments that cost $10,000 a month! It such a crazy and incredible experience to see so many different things, feel different emotions, brush shoulders with thousands of people in a day and feel the exhaustion of all of that at the end of a day.

There is so much to do is NYC I feel like you could go there for a month and still not see everything. But what I did see and what a I did experience, I share with you in this show. I hope you enjoy.

Life of a college athlete with Matt Lehouillier who is the captain of the Olds College Soccer team. I thought it would be a fun show to bring on a local athlete to talk about their sport and what it's like to be a college athlete.

So I invited Matt on to talk about his experiences, what it's like to travel and play and go to school all at the same time as an athlete. I remember my days of traveling and playing, team bonding, new experiences and more. This show brought back some great memories that I'll always cherish.

We all know how great it feels to open up the windows and get rid of old junk or things we haven't used all winter when spring rolls around. When you open the windows you are not only bringing fresh air in the house but new energy as well.

It's the same as getting rid of things you don't use or need. You feel so much better because you are releasing stagnant energy as well, which is why it's so important in learning stagnant energy on a regular basis. This keeps our stress levels own, we have less emotional baggage and our spirits are lifted as we walk around with less weight on our shoulders.

Winter is coming (or is mostly here) BLAH. There is little to look forward to except more winter BLAH ;). The days are shorter, nights are longer, less Sunshine, less activity, less fresh air. A whole lot of things that wake us up, make us feel good and give us energy is gone. 
 
It's important to recognize this and take action before we're stuck in 'winter depression' which is pretty difficult to get out of.  It's easy to curl up on the couch, and do nothing because it's cold and dark outside. Then of course there's winter weight, more misery, comfy clothes ;), an unending cycle of less than positive stuff going on.
 
Time to take action TODAY before our unhealthy habits turn into rituals.

I can't say I ever understood going through the motions, I always figured if you're going to do, you may as well do it well. I think about all the things we do half way or even multitasking (which is another myth), and wonder why not do it 100% if you're going to do it at all?

In this show I talk about the benefits of going full tilt and avoiding going through the motions. What I've found when putting all the effort in I could possibly muster and what I've found the odd time when I don't.

I've also share some experiences working with others when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle and if you want to see results there really is no other way.

I understand we an automatic knee jerk reaction when it comes to the word failure but when you think about it and if we break it down, we can realize failure is a good thing. In fact as many of us know, without failure there is no success. Which doesn't mean we still don't fear it.

In this show I talk about how we need failure to succeed in the gym. Why we have to fail if we want to find success with our health and fitness goals. I hope this show helps you understand failure helps us push past our limits, it helps us find out what those limits are, how to push past our comfort zone (and find out what it is).

Show Notes:

  • pushing past your comfort zone
  • failure is the only way to see results
  • failure is our friend, not an enemy
  • trying new things will help you get better at both the new things and past things
  • push past your limits
  • a small amount of failure should encourage you to succeed
  • if you never fail how will you get better?
