If you find yourself hanging on to the cardio machines at the gym for dear life, turn the machine down a bit and LET GO! Don't let the machine help you along the way. You will burn more calories going slower by yourself than faster, using the bars for support.
Think of the bars as a safety net!
About every 6 months, or when anything has changed, scan fronts & backs of credit cards, health cards, driver's license, checks, & other important papers you carry with you. Keep a copy in a safe place at home & 1 in a safety deposit box. If your purse or wallet is stolen, you will have account & phone numbers all in one place so you can report the theft, cancel credit cards & request new ones. This will save you both time & money if you are robbed.. (click title for more info)
..You can be robbed anywhere, but if you will be in a particularly vulnerable place (in a crowd or on vacation where tourists might be targeted) remove as much from your wallet as possible. Hide ID, cash & 1 credit card for an emergency in a pouch under clothing. Leave the rest at home.
