How Time Flies!

Wow, the days are just FLYING by! 2006 will be over in the blink of an eye!

Soon many people will make the classic New Year's Resolution to "Lose Weight." Sadly, most will "give up" by Valentine's Day (and blame the chocolates!).

The real goal to make for 2007 is to just "Live Healthier." (And NEVER give up Chocolate!!!)

Only focusing on your weight is stressful! And being stressed makes most of us turn to high-calorie "comfort foods." These foods often make getting on the scale the next time even MORE stressful! NOT GOOD!!! You have to break FREE from that cycle!!!

Try making a few healthy changes instead, like...
  • Drink more water!
  • Switch to whole grain wheat products for bread and pastas.
  • Stop eating deep fried foods.
  • Start keeping a food journal.
  • Be more Active.
  • If you are already active, add 10 more minutes to your workout.
  • Start weight training.

I list many more ways to sneak healthiness into your life on my tips page.

Remember, as long as you continue to live healthy, eventually you will be healthy!

Cheers!
