Two things for the start of this year.

1) First find ways that work with my mobility problems, to get moving.

2) Second - start getting the amount of water down my throat that I should be drinking.

Hi ladies,

This is a difficult time of year simply because it is impossible to disappear. With all the food around and all the friends who bake and put on parties it is difficult.

I think that if we can manage to make good choices, eat a modest amount of food, and whenever possible get some movement into our days we will be able to start out in January in a good position to make 2011 a very successful year.

So here's to good choices, and a positive attitude so that this holiday season will be one of enjoyment not regret.

My exercise has been sorely lacking. I've been on the go from morning til night without a break. I know I'm supposed to take time for myself but who else is going to do all the little things that I love and want done for Christmas? I know they're things that I could let go but they make me happy so I do them. And the weather has been so cold I haven't even wanted to go for a walk if I had time. We've had indoor recess for a week. All the kids and adults are going stir crazy!

I'm hoping that my food choices between parties will help me to maintain or at least not gain more than a few pounds. January truly is going to be a starting over month for everything!

It's been a tough week..too many sweets around both at home and at work! I've been allowing myself one little something a day. Not a big slice of cake or anything but maybe a cookie or corner of something. I know it's making the food too much of a part of the holiday but it is! After Christmas no matter what's around it's going in the trash and I'll be back on track again. I did this last year, too, and it worked for me.

Read somewhere that generally people who seem to be in constant motion rarely have weight problems. They seem to be moving something at all times.

I just can't seem to get my mind to work that way though. I am trying this slowly.

One of the things I have done over the years is leg lifts when standing at the sink doing dishes. My hips begin to bother me if I stand in one place too long. While Mom was living with us her therapist had her do backward leg lifts from the kitchen counters after she fell and broke her hip. It has helped me to stay limber and able to stretch.

I really appreciate you all sharing your healthy ideas. I don't really have any ideas to share right now, but I am certainly reading your ideas and seeing how I might be able to implement them into my own life.

Oh, I just thought of one....if you have an exercise ball, use it to sit on in front of the TV or your desk. Just sitting on it is an exercise in itself as it strengthens your core muscles. I have a ball and I need to start using it more myself. I think the ball is a lot of fun. I just wish I could use it for more exercises, but so many of the exercises require me to be able to get up and down from the floor, either to do the exercise, or in the case that I end up on the floor and it is almost impossible for me to get up from the floor. I ended up on the floor last night in my kitchen and it took EVERYTHING I had to get up. If you are in the market for an exercise ball, be sure to get one that is the right size for you. If you are unsure, Coach Nicole has instructions on Sparkpeople.

Good tip Nanna...buckle up, everyone! Keep those new sexy bodies safe!

I do have a couple of steps outside. Imagine what the neighbors would think if they see me step up, step down, step up, step down. They'd probably be saying "Are you going in or what???"!

Enjoy your day!

My healthy tip for today is really one that those of us that drive probably don't realize is a healthy - that is to make sure we click those seat belts tight when we get in a car.

That one action is probably a life saver.

My healthy lifestyle today was clearing our steps then sweeping and salting them, so do some movement each day.
BTW do you have any steps in your yard? You can use those you know emoticon

Nanna, what a great idea. I don't have any stairs in my house other than to the basement and they're too narrow to use for exercise.

Sue, I'm so jealous. I wish we'd get some snow so I can try out my new snowshoes!

I think walking will always be my favorite form of exercise. I love being outdoors. Last year when it got cold I joined Curves but this year I'm determined to walk all winter.

I think it helps that I live in the boonies, too. The air smells so fresh and I'm always on the lookout for deer or something else exciting. So far, no luck but I'm hoping!

I saw Bob Harper on a commerical the other day and he said if you have enough room in your kitchen instead of walking from one place to another to get a spoon, pan, etc, to make sweeping slides sort of like a speed skater. I can't do it in my house but it's a great idea for those who can!

When we watch our favourite tv programmes I walk in place while the adverts are on, this can even be done while sitting in a chair for the less mobile, just move your legs up and down from the floor..all movement counts, it doesn't have to be a marathon. The idea is to move a little more each day or week emoticon
