Weekly Schedule Update October 2nd, 2017

Are We Heading Towards a Big Fat Future?

Canada ranks as 8 in 10 countries assessed for the prevalence of obesity, but the numbers are getting bigger and so are people.

Leading the country is British Columbia, followed by Quebec and then us in Alberta. However, we in Alberta have our own issues.

You might notice all of the chronic conditions that are related to obesity in some way or form.

The is a MRI of two 5′,6″ women. Visibly quite different, but the financial difference is not as easily seen.

One of the most common solutions used for this problem, but is it really a solution? At what cost?

In a time frame of almost 10 years you can see that the direct cost increases by 1/2 a billion dollars, and is climbing.

With obesity comes inactivity and sedentary behaviour, both of which are associated to costs expected to explode in the not so distant future.

Our own senate has made suggestions for preventing and reducing obesity, but how far will these suggestions go in our country?

We live in a society where it has come to a point where in our generation our kids will not outlive us as parents. What will it take for out country, and it’s citizens, to tip the scales in favour of decreasing obesity and improving body composition?

 

My massage package of 3 sessions for $70/session, $45 off package will continue for next 3 weeks. Come in and get yours if you are interested.

You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello!

The cooler weather, the flying geese and the coloured leaves are all part of the deal when this time of year comes around again, and it has most definitely come. It is now officially the Fall season, and yet many people are clutching on to summer.  How often I hear it wasn’t hot enough, I didn’t go anywhere, it rained too much, it wasn’t long enough, etc, etc, etc. It’s inevitable, and yet every year same stories. Just take a moment to contemplate on what we have to look forward to in the fall.

10 Reasons to Look Forward to Fall

1. Fall Leaves

2. Pumpkins

3. Fall Harvest

4. Halloween

5. Fall Layers

7. Thanksgiving

8. Movember

9. Football

10. Hunting Season

So as you can see, there are plenty of things to look forward to every year for everyone. I hope you all are getting your Fall on, as it is looking good.

Diabetes Type 2: Now Choosing Lifestyle or Drugs

Diabetes is a real problem in Canada and here is some information on the disease.

The most common form of diabetes is type 2

Here is the difference between the two types of Diabetes

Here is more specifically how Type 2 Diabetes occurs

What Diabetes can do to you and what you can do to avoid it

Diabetes stats in Canada

Diabetes prevalence in the world

Diabetes in our society, which is mostly Type 2, is by far a preventable disease because it is lifestyle driven. The biggest part of our diet that links Diabetes to Heart Disease and Stroke, the major killers in our country, is sugar. The second biggest part is lack of activity.

In a recent article on CBC by Kelly Crowe called Reversing Type 2 diabetes? Yes, it can be done, many doctors lean heavily on drugs to control Diabetes. The problem with Pharmaceutical companies is that the money made with treating a disease is much greater than curing one. In my line of work thinking differently about what food you consume, and what amount of activity you partake in, can do much more than thinking how much easier it is to swallow a pill without thinking of the costs related to it.

If we continue to believe that we can consume anything and everything provided to us by the food industry, which influences government policy through lobbying, which produces “products” to society labelled as “food”, which uses the cheapest ingredients that are scientifically calculated to have use wanting and buying more because their ultimate goal is profit not nutrition, then these numbers will continue to grow and grow and grow.

 

Here is this week’s schedule:

Mon         Sept 18th         4pm, 5:15pm, 7:45pm

Tues         Sept 19th         9am, 7:45pm

Do You Remember Where You Were 16 Years Ago?

It’s hard to forget the moment I found out about the 9/11 incident. I was on days off and had stayed at a friends place overnight because of over-indulging the night before.  I woke up to every news station showing the first tower attack had just happened, and then feeling glued to the screen as the rest of the days events unfolded.  It was during that day that I one of very few moments, where everything felt surreal; I questioned if I wasn’t dreaming, if I was really awake.

In 1999 my grandfather died when I was 20, my grandmother in 2000, 9/11 in 2001 and my father in 2002 . I learned that a young age that loss was something that can change you, both for the good and the bad.  In those years I believe I matured significantly, and I made sure I didn’t let those experiences keep me down. Personal growth can only happen when you have both the good and the bad, and at that time in my life there were a lot of negatives. However, life went on.

I guess what I’m getting at is that it’s important to reflect on the past once in a while to see who you are. Reflection helps you look forward to who you want to be and how you want to live your life. Nothing is for certain, but retrospect will useful to shape the things that are yet to come.

I started donating blood in my early 20’s as I found it was something that I knew I could easily contribute and help someone directly and immensely. Blood isn’t the only thing that you can give. Blood, organ and tissue donations are in demand, and sadly the number of people taking the steps to become a donor has decreased.

The first day of school is here and this is how lots of parents might feel after a long, hard summer.

For some of the teachers, maybe their thoughts are more like this?

All jokes aside, some of the dangers of school time once again is that there will be lots of kids walking around. Please don’t forget the school zones have an allowed speed of 30km/h and pay attention to the hours of enforcement. Lake enforcement will be patrolling heavily, and you don’t want to get a ticket or worse yet cause someone harm.

Another thing to look out for is the addd traffic when around school busses.  Know the rules of the road when you encounter a school bus.

I hope everyone took time to enjoy a great labour day long weekend.

This was the labour day weekend and I will say it was full of labour. I built 3 sets of shelves in my garage and a work bench for my wife’s soap making area. Here is a picture of me at work doing some demolition.

Wife must have watched some Red/Green shows: if she can’t find you handsome, then she might as well find you handy.

Tues         Sept 5th         5:15pm
