Sponsored Walk/Runs.

Even though they cost money I think the Walk/Runs in my community are both a celebration and a reward for all of my weekly walks.

Go ahead and take a vacation when you can. It just requires a little extra planning to take your new lifestyle along with you.

Lower the Salt the Cheap & Easy Way!

Simply pour any canned vegetable into a colander and rinse off the salt with fresh, cool water. It's a lot less costly than buying low-salt veggies.

Are you a walker?

Sign up for a community walk & run in your area. To find one ask at the local sporting goods stores and jogging shops. They are fun, very doable and give SUCH a sense of accomplishment.
