Fitness and nutrition expert Kathleen Trotter has a revolutionary new book that goes beyond the standard “get fit” message and will guide you through the process of staying fit.
The health and fitness industry is full of quick-fix, radical change, total transformation books and videos attempting to motivate people who are looking for the latest trend to help them lose weight and get healthy. FINDING YOUR FIT is for people who want to embrace incremental changes that will help them stay fit on their terms. Kathleen has developed a myriad of strategies to incorporate fitness into daily routines and Finding Your Fit is full of tips, tricks and tactics to move beyond the fads.
Kathleen Trotter has been inspiring Canadians for 15 years on television, through her work as spokesperson for Quesada restaurants, and with her columns in The Globe and Mail and The Huffington Post. Her mission is to move people to the “fitness is an integral part of my daily life” category with her no-nonsense approach to diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
With FINDING YOUR FIT Trotter answers the question, “How do we get off the sofa and out the front door?” The book is a practical guide to actually getting (and then staying) on track, which provides readers with practical tools that will allow them to connect the dots between wanting to make a health and fitness change, and actually making it.
“The key to staying active is to frame daily movement as a non negotiable. Don’t ask yourself if you will move. Instead ask yourself when you will move.” – Kathleen Trotter
As a lifelong fitness expert, Kathleen is able to speak on a variety of health and fitness topics that tie together her training, her experience, and her mission, including:
– How to get your 10,000 steps: Building exercise into your daily routine
– From treadmill to pavement: How to stay injury free as a runner
– Quick and easy lunchtime workouts / Exercises you can do at your desk
– Understanding the basics: “unhealthy healthy” foods / common workout and diet mistakes / common fitness “traps”
– Motivation, stretching and posture 101
– What is a health entourage, how do I get it and why do I need it?
FINDING YOUR FIT will help you find the inner motivation to go from thinking about a healthier lifestyle to actually adopting one. FINDING YOUR FIT can be purchase on Amazon.com as well as other book retailers.

It’s fall, that means some new shows are coming our way to watch while we’re indoors, cuddled up and staying warm. There’s a lot of shows to watch this coming fall and winter season, but one not to miss, at least in our household will is Timeless.
NBC brings us this great new series called Timeless which airs Monday’s at 10pm ET (9 CT) and is about 3 people who travel back in time in order to keep a terrorist from ruining history. Eric Kripke (Revoultion, Supernatural) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield) as well as the producers of The Blacklist bring you this action adventure series.
A mysterious criminal steals a state of the art time machine and wants to destroy America as we know it today, by changing the past. A team of people that include a scientist, soldier and history professor use the prototype of the machine in order to travel back in time to critical events. The issue is they cannot affect the past themselves so they must stay ahead of the terrorist. The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffery and Claudia Doumit.
The show is actually really good, at least the pilot episode that I was able to see was. Very interesting! If you’d like to see a clip of the show check it out below:
Monday’s episode is titled “The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”. Lucy, Wyatt and Rufus chase the terrorist to the night of Lincoln’s assassination, where they’re horrified to learn that Flynn’s linked up with history’s most notorious assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Putting aside a tragedy of her own, Lucy speculates that Flynn intends to send the fragile nation into chaos by making a bad thing worse, and a debate rages among the team: should they alter history if it means changing it for the better? Tune in this Monday October 10th at 10/9c on NBC!
I hope this show sticks around for a long while, it’s a great, fun, family show that all can enjoy!

Saving money is not the most fun thing in the world to do, sure you can have a piggy bank, that’s actually a pig, or your favorite character, or if you’re like me, just whatever ends up at the bottom of your purse is what you’ve saved. So, why not make saving money a little more fun, especially for the younger generation who needs to learn about saving up.
Instead of hiding away your coins that you’re saving up, why not display them? The 3D Coin Art Display products are a great way to get kids to save up some money, but have fun at the same time. 3D Coin Art has 3 different displays you can choose from. The American Flag, George Washington and The Empire State Building.
Each display uses regular US currency in coins, so dimes, nickels and pennies. The kids can create a piece of artwork with coins, and little do they know, they’re actually saving up some money while making these fun display pieces.
This would be a great gift for any child, or even an adult who either loves art, or loves coins. It’s a fun thing the family can do together and learn a lesson about money at the same time.
You can find 3D Coin Art at various retailers such as Toys R Us or visit 3dcoinart.com.
