How ya doin?

It’s been a few days, have you decided what 500 calories a day, you can live without?

To get the ball rolling, let’s talk about exercise.  If you are like me, you are at a point in life where your joints hurt and there is NO WAY you can bend yourself into a pretzel.  Your jumping jack days are over with and FORGET about jogging.

The good news is, you don’t have to do those things!  All you have to do is to start walking.

If it’s been a while since you’ve actually “moved”, start slow.  Walk to your mailbox, the end of your driveway, or to the end of the block.  When you open that door, take a deep breath of fresh air and feel the warmth of the sun.  What better way to get rid of the winter time blues!!

Before you know it, you will be walking down the driveway and around the block!  Walking for 30 minutes a day will help burn up calories, clear your head and boost your mood.  Maybe you can recruit a friend or a furbaby to go with you.  I have NEVER seen a dog turn down the opportunity to go for a walk!

Good luck to you!  If you have any comments, I’d like to hear them!!

Let’s begin to enjoy life again!!
