I am 49 years old and a mother of two grown girls, and step mom to a special needs son. I have struggled most of my life with being a healthy weight, going from one extreme (underweight) to the other (morbidly obese).

Little mini-challenge for you this week . . . Try this somewhat "challenging exercise" whenever you visit your homepage:

Put your fists up, shift your weight from side-to-side, while in a semi-squat. Alternating your body weight from side-to-side while moving down & up (squatting in a “U” shape) is a great way to strengthen the muscles of your inner & outer thighs—while getting your heart rate up a little. Add a little speed (and perhaps a punch) & watch your heart rate climb!

GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon
