What Fitness Lovers Have In Common

How you think about Exercise might make a Big Difference in how much weight you lose. In One Study, Volunteers walked a One Mile Course. One Half of the Group was told that it was "Exercise." The other half was told that the purpose of the walk was just to enjoy their Music.

Afterwards, the "Exercise" Group was more Tired and Grumpy, AND they scarfed down more Sugary Treats at the Lunch Buffet after the walk.

Focus on the Fun in your Physical Activity, and you may feel Happier and Less Likely to Snack later.

6000 STEPS A DAY FOR HEALTHY KNEES
A Study published in "Arthritis Care and Research" looked at nearly 1800 Adults who either had Knee Osteoarthritis, or were at risk for it. For every 1,000 Steps that the Volunteers took each day their risk of Serious Mobility Problems fell by about 17%.
6,000 Steps -- About a half hour of Walking -- was the minimum that seems to protect against any kind of Disability

    Good information, thanks for the encouragement about tea. A lot of the time you go out to eat and its water, soda or some fruit juice that has a lot of sugar. I prefer those sugar free lemon or peach teas you just shake up. Wish more restaurants offered them, many are trying to cut out sugar from their diet~

Smile, Even If You Have To Fake It!!

Sunday, October 12, 2014




Do you smile often? It sounds silly, but even a fake smile can help reduce stress, reduce anxiety and improve your attitude when you’re faced with a difficult task or situation. What's a sure fire way to get you smiling?

    How could you look at that turtle being tickled with a tooth brush and not smile.

He's so darn cute!

Happy Friday From SparkPeople & FaceBook

Friday, October 10, 2014

I liked SparkPeople's post on FaceBook this morning so much that I wrote it out and gave it to Mom. She does not have computer access, but I felt like the message on this post might help her maintain a Positive Attitude as she battles her latest health problems.
emoticon If she ever does get computer access, the first thing I will do is set up a Spark Page for her, LOL!!
In case you missed it, I will write out the Message for You, too! It might do us all good to read it Every Morning!

emoticon emoticon

Good Morning, Everyone!!

Happy Friday!

No matter what is going on in your Life, remember that Happiness is a CHOICE. You can't control what happens to you, but you CAN control how you react to it.
Make TODAY as Positive As Possible.

emoticon Decide Every Morning That You Are In A Good Mood.


emoticon Maxynne, she said that reading this reminded her of the Sermon you wrote on Forgiveness.

    I have heard that before and I guess I live by it as I never let my considerable health issues get me down or keep me down. There is always something to be Grateful Each and Every Day!

Ida Keeling: Completely Awesome!!

Tuesday, September 23, 2014




Ida Keeling, a 99-year-old great-great-grandmother from New York, recently became the 95-99 age group world record holder in the 100-meter run. Ida finished in 59.8 seconds, becoming the first woman in history to compete in the event in the 95+ age group in an internationally certified race.


Ida, just 4 feet 6 and 83 pounds, started competitive running at age 67 to help deal with grief over losing her two sons in drug-related homicides. Her advice on longevity? “Eat for nutrition, not for taste. Do what you need to do, not what you want to do and don’t leave out your daily exercise. Love yourself.”
Ida Keeling

emoticon I REALLY Needed to see this today!! I am adopting her Mantra as My Own. I still have No Desire to Run, But I will be out there Walking and Strength Training

    That's great she is in such good shape but to me, you should enjoy your food at least once in awhile and do what you want to do in ADDITION to what you need to do. You only live once and life should be enjoyed as well.

    WOW!!! My hats off to Ida Keeling!!! She's one tough cookie!

As for you adopting her mantra, that's a good call, and even though you have no desire to run, you're doing your BEST and that's all God ever asked of us! So, carry on in His name!

Blessings!
