The process of becoming ?

I feel that this is almost the beginning of my becoming, and also turning into a Senior Citizen ( but your'e really only as old as you feel)
Since I joined and really contributed to sharing deep and long hidden parts of me through 'SparkPeople' I feel I'm at the crossroads of who I am and what I want and where I'm going!

Soft Hands

Slather your hands with bag balm. Rub as you would with hand lotion paying a little extra attention to the nail beds. Slip into cotton gloves, your gardening gloves or latex gloves while relaxing or doing a chore. When you remove them your hands will be soft and supple.

Stress it out

Since my husband became ill, I have channeled all my energy into taking care of him. He is not making as much progress because he won't get up and move. I recently had a heart attack and he has to fix his own food now and do more for himself. It was hard at first, but everyday it gets easier. emoticon I let him do it.

Dog Wipes

Many dogs, and cats for that matter, need constant cleaning around their eyes and/or mouth. Soft shop towels are fantastic to use to gently clean these areas. Just tear the amount required (no sense wasting a whole towel on a small animal), moisten with warm water, wipe.

Gentle for the pet and you can just throw it away. Makes sanitary sense to me!

Available at auto shops. Usually less expensive than the big stores that they are also available in.

Dealing With Stress

On those days that I can't get to the pool to swim or I don't have the time to do a whole exercise video (or other circumstances prohibit) I can usually find 10 minutes to take the dog for a walk. It gets me outside ( which is also a mood lifter), I walk faster than if I don't have the dog, and I get in a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise.

Removing Snow off Vehicle

Try using a wooly dust mop to remove snow off of your vehicle. Floor mops have long handles and the wool won't scratch paint like some shovels. Added benefit...a cleaner mop!

My Stress Buster

No more emotional eating! When I am stressed I have learned to rely on my journal. By writing the start of my stress out I am able to problem solve the issue instead of eating.

Purse Safety

Do you ever place your purse in the empty baby carrier of the shopping cart? Take an extra minute to loop and fasten the baby safety strap thru your purse strap. Now you can take your time reading those nutrition labels and give your arms and shoulder a rest. If a thief decides to grab your purse, he will have to run away with the cart as well!! ;)

chocolate cravings

I have learned that if I allow myself a small piece of chocolate at lunch time, this tempers my chocolate cravings. I buy the individually wrapped dark chocolates. I like Dove the best, but I usually get what ever is on sale. This keeps my cravings at bay!
