This show was inspired by those that think and say 'it's too expensive to eat healthy'. In this show I talk about the cost of healthy living and the price we pay by not taking care of our bodies.

That includes:

  • not being used to quality foods
  • eating once a day 
  • considering what your  time is worth
  • cost of medication 
  • feeling good about yourself 

This Show is brought to you by Puradyme, a company that is truly interested in improving your health!

My name is Waylon Auger. I am 26 years old from Wabasca, Alberta (6 hrs north of Olds) in my second year of college volleyball in ACAC. I have a family back home consisting of my girlfriend Tori, daughter Leilani (3 years old), and son Dominic (2 years old).

I just returned to dedicating myself to the game of volleyball less than 3 years ago after being focused on basketball since I was 20 but it never working out. I am also in Business - Sports Management and will graduate with a diploma after this year.

Some goals this year are to finish in the top 10 for kills per set and digs per set in the ACAC. As I stated this is my second season of ACAC volleyball, of which I am captain and a starter this season.

I’ve decided that I’d like to do something this year for those in need. I’ve wanted to do this for awhile now but never took the initiative. It seems like more than ever local families are in need. I also understand food banks could use our help more than ever.

I know there are so many organizations out there that are doing incredible things. Organizations I could help out, in fact, when I tell people what I’d like to do, many say, ‘why don’t you help _____’.

The truth is, I want to do my own thing, but I want to do it together. I could have helped another organization but truthfully besides some food items here or a gift there, I haven’t done as much as I’d like to.

Others say, ‘wait till you have more time to plan’, when I hear that I think to myself, how many families can we help this year that will appreciate that I don’t wait for another year. I think, how many families could we have helped if I started this 5 years ago when I first thought of it.

So I’ve decided to start a Campaign called:
‘100 Boxes for 100 Local Families’.

In this show I talk about why January is the WORST time to start any type of health and wellness program.

Research shows only 8% of people get past January when starting a program in the new year.

Then we have financial issues with all the Christmas gift spending. Packed gyms, colder weather, icy roads, not to mention being in a new environment while tons of other people are standing around waiting for equipment. 

On top of all that with the unhealthy habits we are creating now with Christmas parties, desserts, appetizers and more, we're pretty much setting ourselves up for failure in the New Year.

More on why you should start today in the show!

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.
