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!

MONITOR YOU'RE BLOOD PRESSURE AND RESTING HEART RATE!
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.
