21 Day Challenge – Week 6

February 20, 2011

The Final Week

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.

Congratulations this is your last week! Wishing you the best of luck, you should be proud of yourself for making it this far. I cannot wait to read your conclusion journals and thoughts on this experience. Your journey and transformation has been an inspiration to follow. I am proud of you all!

With love

Heart Healthy Tips for 2011 from Eva Redpath

December 27, 2010

Cosmo TV – Heart Health Expert

Your lifestyle habits now, have a profound effect on your health in the future. Eva Redpath recommends living a healthy lifestyle, taking the following tips into account.

1) Eat Fats

You don’t need to completely eliminate all fats from your diet. Instead, choose the healthier types of fats and enjoy them in moderation.

Good fats such as Omega-3 fatty acids, can be especially beneficial to your heart. Some of the best food sources for your heathy fats include avocados, nuts and seeds, fish, and flax oil.

Bad fats include anything with lots of saturated or trans fats. These have been shown to raise bad cholesterol and clog your arteries. Commercial baked goods (such as crackers, cookies and cakes), fried foods (such as doughnuts and french fries), shortening and margarine.

Although delicious we need to consume all fats in moderation.

2) Do Short, Intense Workouts

A sedentary (inactive) lifestyle is one of the top risk factors for heart disease. Regular exercise, especially aerobic exercise, has many benefits such as lowered blood-pressure, reduces body fat, strengthen your heart and cardiovascular system.

A complete exercise program should include cardio, strength training and flexibility exercises.

In the very least, if you can find 10 minutes 3 times a day, you can get in a great workout. As long as your goal is to work as hard as you can in those 10 minutes and get your heart rate up, any activity will do!

3) Unplug Yourself

Try to unplug for an hour a day. Our bodies and mind need time to decompress. Taking time for yourself by going for a walk, reading a book, or just soaking in a hot tub can reduce the amount of stress hormones circulating in your system.

Improving your lifestyle habits now, can protect you in the future.

With 2011 around the corner, the best way to succeed with Fitness New Years Resolutions is to make lifestyle changes. Create a plan and take action – when you realize how much power there is in your mind you become unstoppable in creating the life of your choice.

Even one small change can make a difference. I challenge you to make your health a priority next year!

Be well,

Eva

What True Beauty Is To Me

December 13, 2010

Body Conditioning by Dancers

My entire message is to live a healthy balanced lifestyle, eat right, exercise and do nice things for yourself. My focus is on health not vanity. As a result I have 50 beautiful women, who look incredibly healthy and vibrant, and I wanted to show them just how beautiful they are.

On Sunday December 5th I brought together the ladies of BCBD for an evening of socializing with their classmates.  No lululemons, only party dresses – because we had a BCBD Photoshoot with a professional photographer who was there to capture their beauty in a personal photoshoot, back drop, lighting and all!

A truly inspiring evening…

A Night In Honour of Your Beauty

While media and society in general continue to looking outward and complicating the definition of beauty, I empower you to continue realizing that simple things like exercising, and eating right makes us happy and healthy and offers the answer to what the definition of beauty truly is and that it simply lies within ourselves.

Our life is a reflection of our actions.
I am Moved, Touched and Inspired by you all!

Eva
