If I knew then.....

Have you ever said to yourself, "if I knew then what I know now". It would be incredible how focused and brilliant we would all be. We have undoubtedly come along way, each and every one of us. We need to celebrate those successes and failures and move on. 

Let me give you and example of something I wish I knew then.......if I knew that sitting in the sun with baby oil all over my skin and aluminum reflectors under my chin was not good for my skin, I think I would have protected my skin from the sun. As a result of this activity as a teenager, I developed Melanoma in 2006, the worse kind of skin cancer. I underwent a skin graft on my leg and spent many weeks recovering. I was lucky then and every year at my check up I feel very fortunate.

I remember that summer of 2006 as I was afraid to go outside. If I did I worn long sleeves, pants and a hat! I am still very careful in the sun, especially as I love to be outdoors! When I golf in the summer or ski in the winter I have my skin protected. Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? When you think about that it’s important to protect the skin you are in :)

I thought I would share this story with you to let you know that my product partner USANA has developed a high performing skincare line called Celavive. I trust my skin to this product, especially knowing that the day cream has SPF 30. My dermatologist told me years ago that SPF 30 was all I needed. It also has a self preserving function to help your skin battle the most common signs of skin ageing, including wrinkles, dryness and loss of elasticity! It’s never too late to protect your largest organ. That is definitely important to me.

If you would like to learn more, please leave a comment or reach out to me via text or email, I think when we share stories that are important to us, we inspire others!!

Daily Commute - Spring News

A few times a week I walk to the Golf Course where I work part time as the Corporate Tournament Coordinator.  In the summer I ride my bike.  The travel time is 10 minutes in the winter and about 2 minutes in the summer.  I chose to live outside of the city of Calgary in Alberta about 5 years ago. It's not for everyone, but it is definitely for me.  Here is a photo from my commute this morning.  

I spent many years travelling in a car in traffic, so I do understand that stress. If you have a good audio to listen to that is always the best. My commute to the city was 1 hour, so a good coffee and radio station also helped to pass the time.

I realized that I was already living a healthy life so I partnered with USANA Health Sciences about 7 years ago.  It was difficult at first to find the time with commuting downtown and then starting a job at the Golf Course. I seemed to always find time to offer friends and family healthy options to support their health needs. It's time now to launch a program that I am confident will help you get healthy and stay healthy!

On April 2nd I will be partnering with Nancy Crites, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist to run a 28 Day Be Healthy Program, just in time for spring. 

Please visit the Be Healthy section of this website to learn more about this program. We are hosting a 30 minutes inforamtion call on Tuesday March 20th at 6:30pm MST. Register now by clicking HERE

I look forward to helping you find a balance to live a healthy lifestyle.
