The initial motivation for making a life change is great
and usually gets us started. However, people tend to revert back to their old habits relatively
soon because they aren't seeing quick enough results. We are always in a hurry to get the
"new and improved" that we often forget that we didn't get "out" of shape
overnight. Usually it has taken years of flawed choices or oversights to get us very
comfortable with the inactive lifestyle that a majority of us now lead.
A healthy active lifestyle is about making clear, focused decisions on a daily basis. It's
not about cutting food groups out of your diet, or learning to run a marathon. It is about
following Canada's food guide, drinking water and being physically active every day. It's about
making knowledgeable choices and understanding the significance of each and every choice we
make. By making the choice to walk to the store instead of driving we positively affect our
health, our environment and our finances. If we choose to learn about proper portions of food
and the difference between "all we can eat" versus "all we should eat" we
can make a positive impact on our health.
So take some time to browse our website. Gather some information; get started on making some
small efforts, repeated day in and day out. You can't help but be successful!
