Well, Thanksgiving 2010 is done. Let the indulging begin. I know it is the season, but remind yourself of all the hard work you have done this year and keep up the good work. If you have to take a day or two off, that is OK! RockIt Mamma was so ill over the holiday break, the two little rockets had to totally take care of her. It was amazing to see them work together, but the big picture was Mamma was “clinically exhausted” and had a terrible virus. It has been over 9 days since RockIt Mamma has seen a workout, but not to fret, the body was working fighting this nasty bug. And reality set it, you cannot push, push, push when your body is tired, tired, tired. Take all of that for what it is worth. Remember, take care of yourself, first. (This is your HEALTH tip for the week.)
The tips this week are going to be a little different. Since the shopping, gift giving and spoiling has begun, here are some suggestions that might help you out on that never ending perplexing list. Or even prepare YOUR list for Santa.
Exercise Mamma: The Fitbit
The Fitbit accurately tracks your calories burned, steps taken, distance traveled and sleep quality. The Fitbit contains a 3D motion sensor like the one found in the Nintendo Wii. The Fitbit tracks your motion and converts this into information about your daily activities. You can wear the Fitbit on your waist, in your pocket or on undergarments. At night, you can wear the Fitbit clipped to the included wristband in order to track your sleep. Anytime you walk by the included wireless base station, data from your Fitbit is silently uploaded.

Cooking Mamma: (Don’t laugh) The Magic Bullet.
