Getting the job done

Getting your mind round to what your body can do is more that half the battle.
Don't say I can't do that until you find out if you can.

From work clothes to WORKOUT clothes

Instead of changing into something comfortable after work, I immediately put on my workout clothes & take off my makeup, so I'm ready to for my evening walk soon after dinner. My reward? A nice hot shower later :)

Cleaning Up the Environment

I tuck a few plastic grocery bags in my pocket when I go for a walk. Along the way I pick up any litter I see along the road and drop it off at the trash cans at the local beach. I not only get lots of exercise, but I am enjoying nature a lot more. Bring a glove to protect your hands!

Want to lower your cable bill?

Just ask. Call up your cable company and ask them if you qualify for their promotional rates. Every time I have asked they have been able to lower my bill by at least $20 a month for cable alone. (Extra savings if you bundle your services).

A tip to increase cardio equipment hygiene and comfort...

Bring a pair of longish cotton socks with you to your elliptical, treadmill or exercise bike of choice, and put the socks over whatever hand-bar you're going to grasp onto. If it's an elliptical you're using, you can slip the socks down over the arm grips; for the treadmill, you can put them over your own hands or tie them in grippable knots around the horizontal bar. Holding onto a cotton-covered bar is SO much more tractioned, comfortable and DRY than a slippy, sweaty piece of plastic!!

Persistence

In the war between water and rock, water wins. This is an example of persistence. No matter what happens, if you keep trying and keep moving forward, you will win.

Enjoy life

I have found that in order to get fit, I need to enjoy what I am doing. Forcing myself to go to the gym and doing the same program over and over again made me lose interest. My new philosophy is just to keep moving every day with something I enjoy doing. Varying my exercise keeps it fresh for me. So on Monday, I might play tennis, wednesday go biking with my kids, thursday workout at the gym and friday take a salsa aerobic class.

Easy peeling Potatoes

My mother always cooked potatoes with skin on. Then she allowed them to cool just a little and peeled the skin off with fingers-OUCH
I saw a variation of this, Before cooking score through the skin round the thin part of-the potato. Boil as usual. Meanwhile set up ice water bath. Remove potato from water and plunge in to ice water. The skin will slide of in two pieces with just a little squeeze,
I always did Tomatoes this way but score after dipping in hot water. Same family same way to peel.

Pedometer as Fashion Accessory (or something)

Along with my watch, cellphone, glasses, wallet and car keys, I do not leave home without my pedometer. If nothing else goes right that day, I still can log in my steps. On those "inactive" days, I've been surprised & pleased by the numbers!
