Fitness Swellness: NTC Week


Today is “Blue Monday.” A day many of us are apparently feeling more down than usual, thanks to the bad weather, debt, the blues after the festive holiday season, and resolutions that we haven’t managed to maintain even just a few weeks into the new year.

(in any case, I don’t believe in Blue Monday — one day we all feel depressed, puh-lease — and in fact, it appears it was a PR ploy…)

But there’s no denying that some of us may be feeling a bit unmotivated and as grey as the skies here in Toronto.

To help kickstart your motivation to feel better and get healthy, Nike is launching NTC Week this week, starting today. To take part, download the Nike+ Training Club app and do one workout from it a day for the entire week. Think of it as a way to recommit to your fitness resolutions if you’ve faltered already.

I’ll be taking part — the Get Focused workouts are as short as 15 minutes. I can commit to that even on hectic days.

BTW, if you’re in Toronto, if you screen capture one of your N+TC workouts, Instagram it with the comment “Count me in” and the hashtag #NTCfit, you can score an invite to a live NTC session with Eva Redpath (there’s brunch afterwards!) being held this Saturday, January 25, 2014, at Sound Academy.

So, how about it? Count you in? Let’s do this!

Beauty Swellness: Beauty rules you can break

beauty products

I shampoo daily. That’s right. Sometimes even twice daily. And I don’t always go to the same colourist or stylist. I cheat. Ok, not often, but I do.

I’m such a rebel.

For this, and other beauty rules you, too, can break, check out my article over on ElleCanada.com. Think of them as beauty resolutions you’ll can easily follow through on!

Keep your eye on the prize

I’d been hemming and hawing about running my first marathon for awhile now (and likely would’ve run one in the fall, but work and travel got in the way). But I’m doing it. Yes m’aam. In fact, it’s one of my 2012 resolutions.

And one thing that’ll help me get through 16 long weeks of training? Keepin’ my eye on the prize — which in this case, may include making my Blue Crush dreams come true and going to surf camp.

(If you haven’t seen the movie, do — the way they shoot the waves is incredible, plus one of Kate’s “prizes” in the movie is a boy, who, fans of The Vampire Diaries may be interested to know, is played by the dude who’s  now Alaric on TVD).

For other ways I — and you, too — can stick to your resolutions, check out my post here on the Schick Quattro for Women Style Squad Facebook page. (And be sure to stay in the loop by “liking” the page while you’re at it!)
