Use Your Public Library!

I love books, I inhale books...I have boxes and boxes of books. One day it dawned on me that I can read all the books I want for free! And I don't need to find a place to store them after I have finished.
I actually found THE SPARK at the library and I'd have never become a member had it not been for the library and it didn't cost a penny!

THAT'S double the incentive for me!

Amazing what numbers can tell you!

It's really amazing how these numbers go down with increased exercise and a sensible diet.
Start walking to the drug store to get a BP reading or just take your pulse randomly when you're sitting down reading or watching TV.
Anything over ~140/90 is not great, 120/80 is normal but shoot for the 110/70's range. Resting heart rate should NOT be over 80. Shoot for 50's to Low 70's.

Juice Pops

I know that eating the fruit is better for you but in the summer when it is so hot I like to take fruit juice and freeze it for a healthy snack. Depending on the fruit juice I also add a little water and if I have the fruit as well I'll add a little fruit. This works better for me because if I buy a box of the low calorie fudge bars I have trouble sticking to one.
