It's Nutrition Month!

To Celebrate and get informed we welcomed on the morning show Register Dietitian from the Alberta Heartland Primary Care Network, Celene Guspie.

Celene talked about the importance of a balanced diet and healthy eating at work.  45% of Canadians (which includes myself) say that eating healthy meals and snacks at work is challenging.  Well after hearing from Celene, it's great to know that it doesn't have to be to difficult or complex. 

Meal planning can be simple!

We focused on 3 common challenges in the workplace that we all struggle with.

Interview with Mike Erickson

2015 03 06 mike erickson

Mike Erickson, who works in Economic Development (E.D) for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, stopped by MIX 107 for an interview. So to start off, I asked him "tell me a little bit about your role with the Department?" Mr. Erickson proceeded to tell me that his role is the Economic Development Officer. He primarily looks at businesses in the retail/commercial side of the E.D ensuring that theE.D is supporting the local business community. He also looks at the attraction of new businesses to Fort Saskatchewan.

I asked him "can you tell me how the E.D decide where new businesses coming into the city should go?" Erickson told me that the Department doesn't decide that, that is to the business owner. First, the business owner would have to find a vacant area of land for sale and purchase the land from a developer or a private owner. Then they would have to go to City Hall to get their permits (development permit, building permit, etc.). After that is done, they take their permits to the planning department and carry on from there…

Next I asked him "does the Department have any ongoing projects?" Erickson said that the E.D looks at a number of things. The process of attracting businesses on the industrial/commercial side of things to Fort Saskatchewan is the main focus for the Department right now. E.D is currently working with Alberta's Industrial Heartland Association to try to bring some industries to the region and to Fort Saskatchewan.

Finally, I asked him "what do you like to do in your spare time?" Erickson enjoys activities such as playing hockey, and he is a runner. Although, He admits to struggling to find time for these activities. He also enjoys spending time with family and friends. "Hanging out with family and friends is always great", according to Mike Erickson.

Right back at it again

2015 03 02 ski trip

Last week I got to go skiing for the first time in 11 years with my mom. We drove 6 hours to Fairmont, where we stayed. Then every day we had to drive 40 km to the Panorama ski resort. It was nice to feel the mountain air again. I have to use a sit-ski because I am in a wheelchair. my mom holds on to tethers attached to the sit-ski and skis behind me, steering me as I go down the hill. I lean to the left or the right to aid her in steering.

I used to go skiing often, but I haven't gone since I had surgery to correct scoliosis in 2004. The doctors told me not to go skiing for five years after my surgery. After the permitted time frame from the doctors, My mom and I didn't want to risk it so we put it off longer. And finally, this year we decided to go skiing. I had a great time! My back proved it could withstand the jostling… Granted I only went on easy courses. I couldn't really go on more courses to explore the mountain because it has been a while and my mom was not comfortable tethering me. We were also using a different sit-ski than what we are used to.

I do not have a sit-ski of my own, so my mom contacted CADS (Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing) to ask if they have a sit-ski I could use. They informed us that there are two sit-skis that I can choose from at the Panorama ski resort. CADS is an organization that is dedicated to helping people with disabilities learn to ski and snowboard. You can click the link to go to their website to find out more. www.disabledskiing.ca

We are going to plan more ski trips in the future now that we know my back can handle it!
