A lot of you know me by now and know I am always pushing to the next level. Put your best foot forward and it will take you where you want to go. Today I ended up cutting my grass which I haven't done for 2 months and made out fine. Each day more and more I am doing and getting stronger for it. No sitting around and waiting to get strong, pick up and go even if it is 10 minutes at a time, it all counts. Smile be happy and healthy. Joyce

It makes you feel in control when you stay focused on the end of the journey. Each day is a new beginning. Like putting one foot on the floor and getting out of bed, put one foot forward on your daily journey of weight loss. If you slip, start again. Eventually-you will not slip and your journey will be closer to ending.
If you’re at home and need to walk from one room to another, take the opportunity to squeeze in some exercise! Try lunging across the room instead of walking. Take a large step forward with your right foot, bending your right knee at a 90 degree angle and keeping your back straight. Repeat with the next foot, moving forward. You may look silly, but your thighs will look great after a few weeks!
Before putting on your socks, rub your feet with a decent layer of foot cream, be it petroleum jelly, or Gold Bond foot cream, or cocoa butter, or something sort of thick. Once you put your socks over it, the socks stay put and keeps them from rubbing against you. It's helped soften up my feet quite a bit and keeps the rubbing to a minimum. I know it seems like it would feel weird, but you don't even notice it once the socks are on!
