February is the month of love! 4
February is the month for lover’s they say; and also, for some very cold weather! I love cats, my family, my friends, cheese and chocolate! And in an effort to stay on track with my ‘living healthy’ resolution, I thought I would share some alternative gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, you know, besides chocolate!
UB Toner (it’s on sale now on Amazon!) I have been working out with my UB Toner about 5 times per week because since I have been on my weight loss journey, the flabby skin around my arms have become more like bat wings! I noticed they were getting more toned after only a couple of weeks of using the toner, so remember, only 10 minutes a day can help with your bat wings!
Wine of the Month Club
Name a Star for your loved one
Couple’s Spa day
Cook a favorite meal together
The possibilities are endless. And if you must have chocolate, I saw a 2-foot long chocolate bar at the store the other day!!
Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, it’s a good idea to treat yourselves to something awesome every now and again.
Happy New Year! 1
This is the time of year when we reflect on the past and let me tell you, 2018 was a whirlwind of a year for me! In December 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. In January I had a double mastectomy; February through July I went through chemo and today I am, thankfully, cancer-free. Of my 9 grandchildren, two of them became teenagers! Where does the time go?
This year I also decided to change my life for the better heath-wise. I changed my diet (no sugar or processed foods) and have lost 27 pounds so far! I also incorporated exercise, which is not my favorite thing, but when you can use the UB Toner sitting on the couch or talking on the phone in your PJ’s it is easy to do and only takes a few minutes per day. If I can do it, anyone can!
I hope when you reflect on this past year, you are proud of your accomplishments, no matter how big or small. I hope you are happy and healthy and ready to tackle the new year with vim and vigor.
I am thankful to be alive, healthy and to be able to share my stories with all of you.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
Autumn is Here! 2
Children are back in school, the weather is cooling slightly, pumpkin lattes are all the rage and we are all trying to get our busy schedules aligned after a wonderful summer full of sunshine and BBQ’s. I am getting ready to harvest apples, pears and grapes.
I love autumn. I love sweaters, crock-pots and Halloween. I love the beautiful colors of the trees and the crisp, cool mornings. It’s the time of year when football fanatics are overjoyed to see their teams play again.
It is also the perfect time to revamp your exercise routine. For me, summer exercise includes a lot of gardening; in the fall, not so much. So, I am looking for something to keep up my activity in the cooler weather.
Things like yoga, walking outside or on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike in conjunction with my UB Toner workout are some good ideas for me to develop my fall season workout.
What are you going to do to rev-up your workouts this season?
Habits are the Key To Success 0
Fall is such a beautiful time of year. For many, it’s a time to re-start and get back into routine after carefree and casual summers. When it comes to fitness, routine really is the trick to staying on track. Once something has become a habit, it is harder to allow our brains to make excuses not to do it.
