NetiPot

When others around you are sneezing, wheezing and blowing stuff all over the place, use a netipot to clean your sinuses! A salt-water bath kills all kinds of nasty microorganisms, and clears the airways for easier breathing!

Do what YOU can!!

Don't let physical issues prevent you from exercising! Do what you can, find something that works for you and your circumstances. I can't run, so I do low-impact step .. I CAN do that.

Fruit flies?

Fruit flies can be controlled with a solution of apple cider vinegar and honey. 1/4 cup vinegar 1 tsp honey. Leave the solution in a shallow dish near where you have the fruit flies for a couple days. If you have a lot of fruit flies put out more than one dish.

Garden for fitness

I use my gardening as part of my fitness plan, keeping myself moving, from one bed to the next doing weeding, thinning, raking mulch, whatever needs to be done.
