Weekly Tips for Nov. 8, 2010

Remember to stay focused and keep on pushing to maintain healthy habits and lifestyle through the holidays. Since the retailers like to start pushing Christmas in October, keep your wits about you. You are more than 7 weeks from the December holidays. Don’t eat that extra cookie, dessert, cake, cupcake, candy bar and think in 2011 I will be better. That is not what YOU are about. YOU are about being healthy, now TODAY! Stay in the zone. Get at least 30 min. a day of some type of movement (walk, dance, skip, shuffle around your parking lot, hula-hoop) and you will be ecstatic with yourself come 2011. You don’t want to be one of “those people” at the gym in January. You want to be a happy, confident woman keeping your routine in check. (more…)
