Reducing stress from neck & shoulder pain

I have found that the warm up neck movements in my Tai Chi class are helpful in eliminating my neck pain. The slow deliberate neck movements help even my stiff arthritic joints.

You deserve it!

Sometimes spending a little extra money on a bag of apple slices or a kit with hummus and pretzels is okay. If these smaller portion sizes (or convenient yet healthy foods) allow me to stay on track, it's worth it! Plus, it can actually save me money because they don't end up in the trash! emoticon

Use Iodized Salt

Of course, you shouldn't over-do salt, but when you use salt, make sure it's IODIZED. Iodine is necessary for your thyroid to make it's main hormone, thyroxine. Without enough iodine in your diet, you can develop hypothyroidism.

Get a Colonoscopy

If you're over 50, you should get a colonoscopy to check for colon cancer. The doctor removes any polyps he finds so the procedure actually PREVENTS colon cancer from developing.

Mocktail Anyone?

I used to always drink alcohol on "date night". Now I enjoy a "mocktail" made of Club Soda on the Rocks with a wedge of fresh lime. It has Zero Calories and no artificial sweeteners which always make me hungrier and thirstier. I feel like I'm enjoying a special drink - but so much healthier than alcohol.

Second Nature

I used to think that if I ate healthy, I would get into the habit of eating healthy and it would "become second nature." But now I think it isn't the healthy eating that becomes second nature. It is the vigilance, creating healthy opportunities, insisting on healthy options, bringing your own snacks and lunch to work, modifying orders in restaurants, etc. that becomes second nature. What becomes second nature is putting your health first and doing what it takes to maximize it.

Working toward kicking the Diet Soda Habit to the curb!

I have to admit that I am addicted to Diet Soda. For years, I have regularly drank 2-4 cans a day.. sometimes more. For sure this isn't good for my body or my pocketbook. Since I can't quit cold turkey, I have told myself that I can have one only after I drink 8 oz of water first. It is working! The past two days I have only had one... If you have issues with soda you might want to give this strategy a try. Spark on!!

Water + Exercise = Daily For Optimum Health!

When I drink enough water and exercise daily, I tend to EAT HEALTHY ; when I don't , I just do not FEEL as healthy and generally that is the case!
