ADL 's (Activity in Daily Living)

Small doses of activity, whether it's a stretch, getting up more while at work, and walking and not sit all day. A small strengthening exercise. Any type of activity in where you don't just sit! This is good for me due to Fibromylagia and am unable to do lengthy strenuous workouts.

Quick and easy way to clean grass stains off white leather shoes

Sometimes I forget and wear my newer white leather walking shoes to mow the yard. I always felt like my shoes were "ruined", but today, I wiped them down with several sheets of a generic brand of "diaper wipes" - and that worked perfectly!

Butt Dancing

As I drive to and from work I dance to the music on the radio. It started with sucking in my stomach and stretching my back and has advanced to swaying, twisting and contracting my butt. The 45 minute drive doesn't seem so long, my back no longer hurts when I drive and I am wearing a smaller size pant.

Make it a game!

I tend to stick to anything fun. If I'm watching tv, sometimes I'll pick a word I know will occur in the show (For example, for supernatural the word is awesome). If I hear the word, I'll pause the show for a minute and do some sort of healthy exercise: jog in place, crunch, jumping jacks, or drink a glass of water if my intake is low. This helps me to stay on track.

Taste and See!

We know that those who eat slow give their bodies time to realize satiety and eat less. I eat alone a lot and find this a challenge. Here are two ways I slow down:

1. Look at my bite before I put it in my mouth. Realize what it is and looks like. Be grateful for the benefit I am about to receive.

2. Chew for a count of 20-25, noting taste and texture.

I find I eat more slowly and actually enjoy what I am having.

Standing instead of sitting while working on my computer

I raised up my desk so my Computer Monitor is at eye level when standing. Fewer lower back tightness and I can move around more this way.
