I'd like to introduce Michelle, (not quite a baby boomer but a grandma to 10) a woman who is overcoming and working toward fit and healthy. I hope her story will encourage you as it has me. Enjoy.
If Michelle's story inspired you would you be willing to jump start your New Years Resolution and begin December 1st. I mean really, how many NYR are there gonna be that begin with eat less, exercise more and get healthy? I know that's how mine will start. If we begin now, then maybe just maybe we can get through December's Christmas parties and cookie making without gaining an ounce, and what a bonus if we actually lose a couple. Will you join me? If you're in, then let's start with baby steps. I will be doing the following:
Baby Step 1, I will close the kitchen at 7:30. That means turn the light off and leave the room and do not allow any food to enter my mouth until breakfast the next morning. Tip a, to help with this I'll try brushing my teeth after dinner, and even better yet, I think I'll pick up a pack of Crest white strips and apply them in the evenings. Tip b, if I really feel like I need something then I'll try a stick of gum or better yet how about a nice hot cup of herbal tea. I like licorice, peppermint and apple spice.
Baby Step 2, I will stop first and consider everything I eat before I put it in my mouth. In other words, I'll think before I eat!
If you have a tip for staying healthy during the holiday season, I'd love to hear it.
