Well I didn’t do a great job of keeping my diary up did I. I enjoyed the workouts and continues to push through them. I enjoyed the kenpo and plyometrics DVDs and “struggled” with the push-ups.

I made it into the seventh week but suffered a shoulder injury, actually both shoulders. I think this was mainly due to my poor technique related to the push-ups and the pull-ups — who knew there were so many variations. I really did enjoy the workouts and would recomend the series. I just wish I had been a little more aware of my technique so I could have avoided the injury.

You might of guessed that these P90X Diary posts aren’t recent. These P90X blog entries had been previously entered, just not published until now. I’ve been off the P90X system for a while now.

Due to the shoulder injury I have not been able to play golf. It’s also curtailed other fitness avenues that I enjoy. My wife and I have continued to walk as much as we can.

I have, however, found something new and exciting that I am going to try. I need to do something to lose the belly fat and lose some weight.

Check back for those blog entries shortly.

Delta Weight Loss Chocolate Because Xocai healthy chocolate is quickly gaining popularity in Delta, many wanna-be healthy dark chocolate products are popping up. (This is yet another example of the fact that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.) Some of the healthy chocolate companies trying to get in on the action tout ‘high cocoa content’.

So what’s the deal with ‘high cocoa content‘? First off, high cocoa content does not necessarily guarantee a healthy Vancouver chocolate product. If that product also contains a considerable amount of saturated fats, refined sugar, wax, and preservatives, ‘high cocoa content’ can mean very little; you have to know your chocolate.

Secondly, the cocoa powder used in virtually all chocolate products sold in Richmond, Surrey and Langley has been stripped of its original nutrients. Remember, Xocai antioxidant chocolate is processed with a patented cold-press method that retains the nutrients in the manufacturing process. There is no weight-loss chocolate like Xocai because Xocai has a patent on the cold-press method.

“Numerous studies have confirmed the benefits of healthy, dark chocolate. Of course, it’s crucial that any chocolate be processed properly to maintain its nutrient and antioxidant content. The good news is that Xocai healthy chocolate products provide just that.”
-Dr. Steven Warren

Xocai recently received an enthusiastic endorsement from Marie Osmond who happens to eat Xocai chocolate daily. Would you like Marie promoting your business? I’m Phil Hoskins, entrpreneur and investor in human spirit in Delta. Contact me at 604.943.8598 or to start a profitable antioxidant chocolate business in Delta and the surrounding areas.

Sweet Business Opportunity in Delta

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln.

I believe that wholeheartedly. Do you? Are you a determined Delta businessperson who does not let circumstances limit your potential? Are you ready to really make something happen for yourself?

I am Phil Hoskins. I am creating my future with Xocai (show-sigh). There is no other business opportunity in Vancouver that compares to the Xocai home business opportunity. Xocai Healthy Chocolate with acai berries is a ‘category creator’. How many health home businesses can say that? If you were going to ‘create a category’, could you come up with anything as revolutionary as healthy antioxidant chocolate? And even if you could imagine something as wonderfully radical, could you do what it takes to bring it to market?

Jeanette L. Brooks, Xocai co-founder, made it happen. It wasn’t easy. It took a lot of time, money and trial and error. But now her healthy chocolate business is exploding. You can benefit from her vision and hard work.

My favorite product is XoBiotic Squares. It is a hot seller in Richmond. My Langley and Surrey customers eat chocolate everyday. (Can you relate?) With Xocai, they are replacing the bad with the good. They now eat Xocai antioxidant chocolate in place of the waxy conventional chocolate they used to eat. One Delta Xocai lover said recently, “It is strange to eat chocolate without the ever-present guilt I used to feel. Now I don’t need to break my habit. The chocolate monkey is off my back.”

My Xocai team is called Xocai Success Team. We are having a sweet time sharing weight-loss chocolate with our Delta friends, family, neighbors and co-workers in Richmond and Surrey. (It is amazing how many new friends you make when you give out chocolate samples.) Come join us to create your own bright future!

Jeanette L. Brooks and the Xocai Story For the past two decades, MXI founder Jeanette L. Brooks has been winning over skeptics who initially did not believe her bold claim that chocolate can actually be good for you. With the success of her Xocai line of healthy chocolates, she has unequivocally demonstrated that dark chocolate can indeed ENHANCE YOUR HEALTH.

If you are near Delta, BC and want to learn more about healthy chocolate, contact me by completing my Contact Me Form. I work in the Vancouver area, but will be happy to speak with you over the phone if you are farther away.

Jeanette’s motivation to sell healthy dark chocolate was very personal. After being diagnosed with diabetes in 1991, she began a quest to research and develop delicious and satisfying chocolate food products that can be incorporated into a sensible diet and active lifestyle. Jeanette was already a successful entrepreneur, having founded Yurika Foods Corporation and Phoenix International Corporation. After the life-changing diabetes diagnosis, she founded Pure De-lite, which manufactured low-carb sugar-free chocolate products. Under Jeanette’s leadership, Pure De-lite sales eventually topped 300 million.

MXI is Jeanette’s current venture. In creating Pure De-Lite’s and MXI’s offerings, Jeanette led research teams that developed the processes and formulations that make dark chocolate health-promoting. You see, it is not the cacao that is bad, it is the high-fat milk products, refined sugar and wax that is added to the cacao to create the ubiquitous milk chocolate that is found in chocolate candy products.

MXI food scientists paired acai berry, one of nature’s most antioxidant-dense fruits, with dark chocolate. But it is not just the acai berry that makes Xocai chocolate unequaled; the cold-press manufacturing process used at MXI is also revolutionary. In fact, MXI has patented it. The primary value of the cold-press method is that it does not remove the antioxidants from the cacao as is the case with traditional processing methods.

Jeanette takes special satisfaction in knowing that Xocai chocolate is not only an occasional treat, but a guilt-free staple for fellow diabetics. Thousands of Xocai believers have shared their success stories. Following is an endorsement from a Xocai fan:

“I am looking forward to a lifetime of great health with deliciously healthy chocolate in spite of the fact that I am a diabetic! My husband also enjoys healthy chocolate with Acai at least three times a day. He has replaced glucosamine and other antioxidant products he was using for aching legs and knees and has discovered incredible results of his own. We are indeed headed for a happy retirement while sharing this product with others so that they may experience great health of their own.”

Jeanette markets Xocai products through the Direct Selling model. Thousands of independent MXI distributors like me are thriving in this uncertain economy thanks to the vision and dedication of a truly remarkable businesswoman.

Langley Residual Income Sharing Xocai healthy chocolate is fun and rewarding. Of course, I love the money, but I also enjoy introducing people to a delicious chocolate product that is actually good for your health.

Many Richmond healthy chocolate lovers are diabetics. Before they began eating Xocai healthy dark chocolate, some of them had not enjoyed chocolate for years! That is very hard for me to imagine. As far as I am concerned, chocolate ranks right up there with the air I breathe.

My Delta Xocai team members love being their own boss as they grow their Langley antioxidant chocolate business. Sharing Xocai does not feel like ‘work’ to any of us. We succeed together as we support each other.

Would you like to put your energy and creativity into building a profitable Vancouver business based on the world’s absolute favorite food? Unlike many MLMs, the Xocai distributor retention rate is surprisingly high. When Delta people join Xocai, they quickly experience success and stay with the company. It is not difficult to persuade people to try Xocai – even the few who aren’t crazy about chocolate are curious about ‘healthy chocolate’.

The Xocai compensation plan is extremely generous. A Surrey Xocai weight-loss chocolate distributor needs to sponsor just two people to qualify for commissions as long as the distributor continues to purchase enough product for their own use.

I would love to discuss my Xocai experience with you. For an informational no-pressure discussion, contact me at 604.943.8598 or

P90X – Week Two (and a bit of Week Three)

   Posted by: Phil    in Fitness, P90X Diary

This got started well. I wasn’t the madman I was for the first week. I planned on making sure I still had something in the end to be able to push myself. It’s really nice to be able to have a different work out every day.

The muscles are still sore but I am working through it. It’s nice how one day is a “muscle” work out and the next is an aerobic one. I was able to do more.

This week was a little tough as I need to take a break on day 3. I finished the Plyometrics work out and the next day everything was fine. Somewhere between walking to work (may have slipped on some ice) and about mid-day … my hip started to hurt.

I rested 3 days before feeling 100% to work out again …

Health Chocolate in Delta Vancouver chocolate sales increase dramatically around Valentine’s Day. The Richmond Wal-Mart and Surrey Costco often run out of Lindt and Dove special-edition Valentine’s boxes. Forgetful chocolate gift-givers dash into Delta convenience stores on their way home from work, hoping to find something fancier than a Kit-Kat bar. International chocolate sales hit $345 million in February 2009. Why is this heavenly confection associated with the most romantic of all holidays?

Perhaps it is because chocolate triggers the release of endorphins. Physical intimacy also causes the release of these ‘love chemicals’ that create pleasurable feelings.

Chocolate and romance have been linked for thousands of years. The Aztecs used cacao-based beverages in rituals involving the worship of Xochiquetzal. In Aztec mythology, Xochiquetzal is the female deity linked to fertility and sexuality. In more than one culture, cacao beans were used to woo women.

Why wait for Valentine’s Day? Why don’t you treat your Delta sweetheart to some decadent Xocai chocolate this week? Xocai has a complete line of delicious chocolate gifts.

If you and your lover enjoy sharing mugs of hot cocoa by a crackling fire, try Xocai Sipping Xocolate. Hot cocoa connoisseurs will appreciate the rich smoothness of Xocai’s premium hot chocolate beverage.

Your cookie lover will be in cookie heaven when you give him/her a box Xocai Powerhouse Cookies.

Xocai Nuggets are a good pick for chocolate candy eaters. If your love interest needs an energy boost, try Activ, Xe Energy or Xocai Protein Bars. (Who knows how that energy will be used?)

To order Xocai healthy chocolate in Vancouver (or anywhere else), call me at 604.943.8598. Chocolate passion may be just what your lover is craving. Don’t you want to find out?

Chocolate Wealth in Delta

   Posted by: Phil    in Healthy Chocolate, Home-based Business, Xocai

Chocolate Wealth in Delta Xocai healthy chocolate distributors in Vancouver and around the world have discovered that chocolate is recession resistant, though some are more surprised than others.

The ‘instant believers’ in Delta BC that recognized the potential of Xocai dark chocolate when they first heard about it expected their current level of success. Their initial positive vibes were quickly confirmed.

Others joined with some hesitation. Some had been laid off and needed an income while they looked for work. Hundreds of those who started their Xocai home business ‘on the side’ have built their antioxidant chocolate businesses to the point where it has become their primary means of support. It is interesting to hear stories of people who say that losing their nine-to-five job was the best thing that ever happened to them. To know that your income potential is unlimited is a heady feeling for many former wage earners.

Founders Jeanette L. Brooks and Andrew N. Brooks are gratified to know that thousands of families have been helped financially through the Xocai business opportunity.

And the best part? Being a part of the healthy chocolate revolution! Can you think of a better way to bring happiness to chocolate lovers who want to improve their health? Do you think global chocolate demand will ever diminish? This is not a home business secret; MXI Corp welcomes everyone to the wonderful world of Xocai healthy chocolate.

If you want to sell New York Times style chocolate in and around Richmond or Surrey, call Phil Hoskins at 604.943.8598 or visit my healthy chocolate website. Have a new area to open up? Give me a call!

Heart Healthy Chocolate If you have been following my Vancouver healthy chocolate blog, you know that I sell sell Xocai antioxidant chocolate in Delta. Xocai chocolate is a revolutionary health food. That’s right, I said Health Food. If you are skeptical about Xocai’s health claims, check this out.

Recently, ran a story about stroke risk and chocolate consumption. Here is an excerpt from the story:

Yet another health benefit has been linked to eating chocolate: It may decrease your risk of stroke, a new study suggests. The analysis, which will be presented in April at the American Academy of Neurology’s 62nd Annual Meeting, reviewed the results of three previous studies. One study with more than 44,000 participants found that those who ate a weekly serving of chocolate were 22 percent less likely to suffer a stroke than those who ate no chocolate.

This article refers to a legitimate scientific study that used over 44,000 participants! And this is only one of the many studies that are attracting attention in Richmond. Do a quick Google search and you will see reports on a multitude of studies.

Chocolate with a high percentage of cacao powder, such as Xocai antioxidant chocolate, is the type of chocolate that is most beneficial. And no chocolate product available in Vancouver has a higher percentage of cacao than Xocai.

How do you like your chocolate? As a bar? As a drink? As a cookie? Xocai has an antioxidant chocolate product for you. Xocai Nuggets, Xocai Omega Squares, Powerhouse Cookies, Xocai Protein Bars, Xocai Xobiotic Squares, and Xocai Activ are just a few of the products available to Richmond, Surrey and Langley chocolate lovers and supplement customers alike.

To order chocolate that can reduce your risk of stroke, call 604.943.8598 or send a note from my Contact Us page.
