"Wishing all a wonderful, happy & prosperous "New Year"

Thought of the Day: "At this time of the year everyone will be looking forward to the New Year and thinking of New Year's resolution.  That is a " Big Thought "

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION:  HEALTH SITES   RECIPE  FACTS & TIPS    HERBAL  

RESOLUTION:

Other year has gone by and we are still asking ourselves " How can I get motivated to work out?"  This is what

a lot of people have tried last year and the year before.  Always something seems to get in the way of our New

Years resolutions.  Getting up and out the door what is called "transitioning" from your very fast pace in

today's lifestyle to an exercise routine is the single most difficult part of the process.  It's even harder than the

actual workout itself!

Now how can we overcome this?  I myself for years could not think of a way to do this.   Here is how I finally

overcame the problem.   I take one hour for myself a day.  I find that the best time for me is after dinner.  This

hour is my time,  In taking this time for myself I have found that I think of it as the "Me" time.  Learning to

have a private time for yourself is the best way to learn to Love yourself inside and out.   I take a walk for 1

mile.  Before I start I do a little stretching to get my legs in shape to walk. I start slowly and pick up speed after

the first 1/2 mile to get my heart rate up.  It takes me about 26 minutes to walk a mile.  

When I first started I did the same thing as I now do to walk this mile but, did only a quarter of a mile easing

into this walking and them increased the walk when I felt I wanted to walk more.  This has helped me to tone

my muscles which in time burns fat that has helped me to lose inches,  and  help keep my weight down.  As I am

no spring chicken just young at heart.  

Everyone thinks that they need someone to help them with there exercise program.  You, don't really need

anyone to help you with your exercise program.  Find the time that is  best for you, is it morning, lunch time,

evening?  When I was working the last 20 years I used my lunch hour to do Tie Chi,  for about 20 minutes, and

Isometric on my 15 minutes breaks.  I found that the stretching really felt good, it helped tone my muscles kept

me looking young and my mind was clear for working.  

The solution is to change that limited definition of exercise it doesn't have to mean a five-mile run or an hour

sweating at the gym.  Any moving around will help you lose weight, and add radiance to your face and make you

healthier.  Think like a child put some of the energy that you use for work in your daily life towards your time.

 Children are always going, jumping  rope, bike riding, running, swimming, baseball, etc...,  If walking is not

your cup of tea, though it is the most simple way to start get a video from the library on Tie Chi, Yoga, or

Isometric.  Ride a bike in the park, home, at the gym.   Most of all don't depend on a person to go along with

you on your exercise program.  What do you do if they don't show up?  Mostly you stay home, learn to be on

your own, and them you can invite a friend.  

Don't forget once you start this it is a way of Life that continues on you can take a break for a day or so, but,

only that long.  Even when you take a vacation for a week or so you need to work out at least 3 days for that

hour.  Just remember to take a walk instead of driving to an area that you want to see or take a hike it isn't

hard to keep your exercise program going you plan a work day, plan a trip, plan and outing, plan your way of

life to stay healthy with your exercise program.

 Ingredients

• 1/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

• 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion

• 2 tablespoons chili sauce

• 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

• 1/4 cup whipping cream

• 1 loaf unsliced round whole wheat or white bread (about 9 inches in diameter)

sauce, lemon juice, and dash salt. In another small bowl whip cream until soft peaks form. Then fold the

whipped cream into mayonnaise mixture. Cover and chill dressing while preparing salad.

3. Remove crabmeat from shells, then cut crab into bite-size pieces. Break fish into large chunks. (You should

have about 1-1/3 cups of fish.) For the salad, in a large bowl combine spinach or romaine and tomato. Pour

Earlier hearing loss is identified, the better it can be treated, and possibly even be reversed, say experts at the

American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Call your doctor if you often: Ask people to repeat

themselves,  are told you play the TV too loudly,  hear better with one ear. Struggle to follow a conversation

when more than two people are talking.  Call the Action center for American Speech-Language-Hearing

Association. To find an audiologist who can check your hearing, call 800 638 8255

HERBAL

WINTER IMMUNE SYSTEM TONE-UP-

Check out this and more at the link below.

Echinacea, Goldenseal

Cold weather toners: get the herbs at your healthfood store. Make a dark tea by opening 4 - 6 capsules into a

pot of water at 'tea-making temperature' (between a 'bath and a boil', about 155 degrees.) Cover, let steep or

brew. Never boil tea or herbs!  And the super 'carminative' which means it makes your cheeks pink, your

fingers warm, CAYENNE powder in capsules. This will not burn your tummy. Ginger and mustard will raise

welts but not cayenne. http://home.earthlink.net/~astrology/AUTUMNTUNEUP.htm
