It’s Not A Place

Happily ever after is not a place:

It’s a state of being and you have to work at it every day. ~Gwendolyn Heasley

Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal.

Live this day as if it were your last.

The past is over and gone.

The future is not guaranteed.

A gift unique to you.

Find it.

YOU are unique!

God made no two people alike because

He had a different idea for each of us.

To the extent that we live that idea,

we are fulfilling our purpose on earth. ~Alan Cohen

Are You Too Old?

We do not stop exercising because we grow old.

I am a baby boomer and I hope to continue with my fitness for a long time.

My hubby always says I will be that little old lady still going to the gym when I’m 90.

I hope I am!  😉

The main thing is, I enjoy all my workouts and it is good for my muscle tone as I am aging.

You’re never too old to take care of your body the best you can.

Do what works for you!

I have my aches and pains and arthritis that I cope with on a daily basis.

I wish to believe that keeping fit helps me deal with it all.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Remember~ YOU are never too OLD!  :)

Fall is in the air in my world!

How about in your world?

Is it Fall or Spring time?

Have a beautiful Monday.    :)

Are You Regular?

Exercise regularly.

Many studies have shown that 150 minutes of vigorous exercise during the week can have up to a 65% improvement on sleep.

Exercise is beneficial for emotional well-being as well, according to many studies.

I thought my title would make you smile. It made me giggle.

I know I get my quota of 150 minutes of vigorous exercise weekly.

 The gym three times a week for 60-90 minutes and hour walks 2-3 times a week helps this active baby boomer.

If all one can do is walk, there are so many health benefits.

Choose what works for you and you too will notice the difference.

Take care of your body. It’s the only one you have.  :)

Have a wonderful weekend and always remember to count your blessings. ♥

Trick The Eye

Use a smaller plate, this simple illusion “tricks” the eye and the stomach into thinking it’s full more quickly.

Using a smaller plate is a good idea!

Just don’t fill it too high or the food will fall off.  :)  I’ve done that.

Keep snacks such as nuts, carrot sticks and grapes accessible throughout the day to prevent the munchies from kicking in, leading to bad choices.

Cucumbers and celery sticks are one of my favorites to nibble on.

Choose healthy snacks.

I never starve myself; I grab a healthy snack.” ~Vanessa Hudgens
