Power of the Streak

Keeps me focused, the little things add up. Each day I make my bed, take my vitamins, have my water and aim for a minimum of10 minutes of fitness. These tasks are small but they are the foundation of my healthier lifestyle. I'm taking time to do things for me, to help my life.

10000 steps

Whenever the weather is to hot or to cold my wife and I will mall walk. We will walk around the mall before it opens and then we do our shopping when the mall opens. Another thing we do is when we go to the big box stores we walk to one side and then walk up and down the isles

Each day is another opportunity

It doesn't matter if I mess up one day by not getting my correct activity in or if I eat something that is laden with calories, I can get right back with my plan. A slip-up doesn't mean that I have "blown it" and I can learn something from whatever did/ didn't happen. emoticon

Watch the Salt

When you watch your salt intake, by definition you should be cutting the amount of processed foods you eat and probably not going out as much. This can often lead to breaking a plateau.

shopping

When ever I drive to the store I make sure I park at the far end of the lot and walk to the store.

Learn to burn

Educate yourself. Become an expert on yourself. The recommendations of the USDA, the AHA and the ADA are basics for avoiding disease generally gotten from statistics. There are numerous resources for learning to gain optimal health. Research and don't take any one source as the last word.

Vegetarian?

SparkPeople is wonderful to vegetarians. It is not a program of adaptability, but rather one of equal inclusion. I especially like the wealth of suitable recipes.
