A 7 day meal plan of the highest nutrition

Some of you may know we are using a nutrition coaching program called nutrition complete. Down load the example of a healthy 7 day eating plan (1600 calorie plan) and shopping list below. Imagine getting yourself and your family organised every week to eat well. It is perhaps one of the most important things you can do to help set your kids up for a healthy life. This program, when set up properly will allow you to plan your eating week (and a conveniently printed out shopping list) with perhaps 10-15 minutes of work. It is the future of organised and healthy nutrition for your family quick_start_week_1

Do you ‘LIKE us?

I tried this once before but have a better link now, so it should be easier to make a connection happen. You should go straight to a page instead of just the log in to facebook. LIKE US! If you are on facebook this is a great way to stay connected with what is happening at Best Practice. We will ‘like’ you back if you have a business….I promise. If you are member of best practice already you can earn points when you post about us or tweet. Some of you may have got an email from Perkville recently. That was related to us. It will be like a fly buys system. Earn enough points doing what comes naturally, like attending appointments and classes, posting about how much fun you had at best practice on facebook, refer a friend etc. and get points which leads to getting stuff! Don’t worry all will become clear soon enough. But in the interim, just like us will ya? I LIKE BEST PRACTICE ON FACEBOOK!

Bridge to Brisbane, 2011

September 11 is the day. We would like to see you in this one. I am organising a taxi from the pool for those who would like to come with us for the 10 k (or 5k) run or walk. You know we like to see you test yourself a little and this is a great opportunity to log some kind of performance from which to judge future efforts. It is nice to strive for something each year and try to better yourself in some way. I am really keen to get a best practice ‘useful’ fitness photo like this one below. If you don’t already have one of our unbelievably beautiful singlets we would like you to earn one by being involved. For those interested, we are going to have a little barbecue back at the pool afterwards and a cool off in the pool. Let me know you are up for it by filling in this form below

Gym update

Sweat, a best practice gym is coming together. See the attached document for the proposed layout (ish)! REVISED FLOOR PLAN (1 Page) Just remember 150 memberships only. I am confident we will sell these fast. This is really for 3 types of people. Existing clients like you who want to slot in some extra training on your own to accelerate progress Clients who have become truly independent in this ‘fitness is a habit’ thing, i.e. don’t need us, if that is actually possible?? 🙂 Business people and residents who live close by and really like the idea of swimming and gyming in the same place Anticipated opening is still October. Let me know if you want me to put your name down as ‘interested’ below. Or reserve your spot now by calling me at the studio. There is a special corporate offering too if you work for a company in the local area. Ask me about that if that is relevant to you.

If you are responsible for what your family eats, read this!

I have been using a great tool for planning meals and optimising nutritional intake. Here’s how it works. You enter in your current weight and then your goal weight. You enter in your food preferences and a number of other variables. It then plans for you, in the right proportions what you should be consuming to achieve your goal in a sensible time frame. The program has some amazingly tasty and healthy recipes along with dietitian designed meal plans that you print out on a week to week basis. It will even give you out a shopping list to make things as easy as possible. This is a great tool that you can use by yourself or in conjunction with the training you are already doing with us. You could also use this  for planning your family’s meals and being confident that what you are putting together is healthy and nutritious. You really should find out more about this if you are interested and need help in eating better. Skin – Thumbnail

Find your why

I saw a rerun of the Adam Sandler ‘comedy’ CLICK on the weekend. Whilst it has some  funny and entertaining moments it is, in my opinion a serious movie about the very meaning of life. For those of you who don’t know it, it is about a guy who is given a very special remote control that has the ability to freeze, slow down, speed up or completely jump various parts of his life that he doesn’t really enjoy. In the parts of his life that he jumps his body is there and participates but his mind is elsewhere. The real problem is that the remote control begins to learn his ‘preferences’ for jumping the boring stuff and starts doing it automatically. He begins to miss whole chunks of his life and having become so focussed on progressing in his career, he loses any meaningful relationship with his wife and children. It is an incredibly sad story because it reflects what can and does happen often when priorities get messed up.  This was a Hollywood movie so he got a second chance. But real life isn’t like that if you didn’t already know. As my friend Eminem says, ‘you’ve got just one shot’ So how does this relate to Best Practice and what we do? Well, we are here for when people finally get it, that the main priority in their life has to be their own health because they can be nothing to anybody with out it including their career but more importantly their family.

Returning to the scene of the crime….

This is about 50m from where I got married. A beautiful part the world Cabarita Beach. What a day yesterday was huh? I ran along this beach for about 50 minutes and dived in to the ocean at the end, the cool water chilling me but feeling so incredibly refreshing and exhilarating. I got out, played a little cricket with Indy and then relaxed with a cold beer and some nice food with my beautiful wife and good friends from Burleigh. I don’t tell you this for any other reason than to remind you about the reasons for investing time in getting fit -Useful fitness that allows you to have fun and live life to the full. In thinking about it there is more. Besides doing a bit of training for the upcoming Bridge to Brissie, there also this thought of –  ‘don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time’, if you know what I mean. Some of the foods I am eating now (that I am not in the perfect anymore) perhaps would be considered heavy on the calorie ‘deposit’ side. The run made me feel like I was withdrawing some of this ahead of time to give me the buffer I needed to keep the ledger even, so to speak. Call me crazy but aiming for balance in this way feels intuitively sensible. I have spoken about this before but it bears repeating. Working out consistently and at times vigorously in a gym or a studio is great, but let’s not forget why we do it. […]
