21 Day Challenge – Week Three

January 30, 2011

Week Three

“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”

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!

November’s Healthy Lifestyles Video Blog with Eva Redpath

November 2, 2010

Welcome to my monthly newsletter.  You can now look forward to my fitness and nutrition tips and motivation in its new video format.

This Month’s Topics:

1) Nutrition – Recipe for a Hot Chocolaty Nutritious Treat
2) Fitness – Exercise of the month: BCBD Back Track
3) Wellness – Bio-K Probiotic
4) News –  6 Week Pre Holiday Session/ BCBD workshop with Lindsay Ritter Dance

*     *     *     *     *

1) Nutrition – Hot Chocolaty Nutritious Treat

Its no secret that I’m a dessert -a-holic its always very challenging finding healthy options for tasty treats. As soon as it gets cold out my favorite treat is to warm myself up with a hot, chocolatey drink…
I have to admit I never would have though of this healthy alternative to regular sugar packed hot chocolate
I’m a huge fan of the Vega products, and they’ve got a perfect solution thats  as simple as combining these two healthy ingredients.

Hot Chocolaty Nutritious Treat


Ingredients: 2 scoops choc-a-late Vega Shake & Go Smoothie
11/2 cups unsweetened Rice or Almond milk

Directions: Mix up the Shake & Go powder and milk until powder is dissolved. Then warm the mixture in a pot on the stove for a few minutes.

Its a healthy alternative, to a delicious treat. You can even get creative and mix it with the Vanilla Almondilla and I like mine with a little cinnamon on top…Try it!

2) Exercise of the Month – BCBD Back Track ~as seen on video

*     *     *     *     *

3) Wellness – Bio-K Formula

During my recent travel to Europe, apart from hours of walking a day, the only exercise I got was the action of lifting my fork to my mouth, and I have to be honest with you, that did a real number on my system.

When I returned, I knew I needed help to get back on track. So I used Bio-K Plus Formula.

Probiotics are (good bacteria) that help intestinal bacteria perform their tasks more efficiently. They take over when your intestinal bacteria have too much work or are weakened or even destroyed by — antibiotics, stress, poor nutrition or any other factors such as “travel to other countries”, and “overindulging” like in my case.

The Bio-K formula, which contains beneficial live bacteria that are found in great number in the intestine, promotes and maintains a healthy balanced digestive system.

You can find it in the refrigerator section of your local healthfood store. In the Original, Fruity, Strawberry, and dairy free flavours.

I’m not going to lie, its not taste, but thats not the point, its an effective way to get you back on track.
