I have been doing a survey lately to see how many people know what vitamin D actually does. People know that it comes from the sun and some people know that most people don’t get enough in North America. People know it’s important and some people even take a supplement of some form. I’ve been asking people for at least a couple weeks now and only 2 people kind of knew what vitamin D does. It does many things but the main thing I was looking for was that it enables the absorption of calcium.

I was talking to a sports therapist last weekend at the Expo centre. He uses cold therapy to reduce inflammation. Sounds pretty normal, right? This isn’t putting an ice pack on a small injury though. He will put you in a room and drop the temperature of that room to minus 160 degrees Celsius for one minute. Wow hey?
I went on CTV again the other day. It was a bit short notice, so I randomly picked how to do a proper squat because I see them being done incorrectly on a regular basis and this can end with permanent damage to the body. I was very nervous, so I had my friend Stephanie come support me and help me demonstrate a proper squat. After the segment was over I thought it went terrible. I thought I rambled off topic and sounded lame. I saw the replay of the segment and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I first thought. Have a look at it here:
The theory behind 6 meals a day made total sense. Let me explain. The idea was to keep your blood glucose level the same through the day instead of eating a big meal, then having your blood glucose level max out, jacking insulin output which stores fat, then having blood glucose drop off due to the high insulin level, leaving you fat and tired.
Are they a good idea? Experts say those that make new year's resolutions are more likely to achieve goals then those that don’t. I think new year's resolutions are a great idea! You get a fresh start. We all make mistakes and we all fall off our wagon from time to time. A fresh start to make another attempt at achieving a goal is always good. Like Wayne Gretzky said “100% of shots that don’t get taken don’t go in”.
