12/6/15: I'm ready for 2015 to be over and 2016 to start. So ready in fact that I've already decided what my goals for the year are going to be.

2016 is going to be the year of Healthy Habits. Each month I'm going to work on a new habit that will get me moving, improve my eating or make me feel better. I'm not good at putting myself first, but I'm going to be by the end of the year.

Thanks for dropping by my page. I hope you'll friend me (if we're not friends already) or leave me a little note and let me know what you do that is successful so I can learn from you!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Having a healthy snack right before you shop will put you in a healthier frame of mind & lead you to make smarter choices. Snacking on an apple may do more than just keep the doctor away.

    If eaten before a grocery store trip, you may buy more freggies than if you ate a cookie (or didn’t have a snack at all). Don’t care for apples? Any nutritious snack will put you that mind frame.

    Mini-Challenge for this week: “Count Your Blessings”

    emoticon emoticon Don’t just count calories, and don't just count your reps … “Count Your Blessings.” Giving thanks can do a lot more than just change your outlook on life. It can also benefit your body, your health, and even the number on the scale. Be thankful of what your body can do, and think of exercise as a gift you’ve been given—rather than a chore. . . and you’ll be more likely to stick with it!
