Exercise Tips From People Who Hate Exercise

Fitness And Wellness Freebie Friday

Since there are so many deals for the holidays, I will post some of my favorites.  I needed workout pants badly, so I checked out my local Target and bought these:

These pieces are from Champion activewear and the long pants were $19.95 and the leggings were 13.95.  I like their line because they have extra small, small, medium, large, extra large and double extra large. They also have three inseams, short, regular and long. I bought small with the long inseam. I will report back in a few months about how well they hold up.

Join The December Salad A Day Challenge

Join me so we can avoid that holiday weight gain.  You need to have a Facebook account or you can update here on this post.  Here are the rules:

1. You can have a salad for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it is up to you
2. You are allowed 2 tablespoons of dressing or one packet
3. No taco salad
4. If you add nuts, only 2 tablespoons
5. Only 2 or 3 tablespoon of cheese
6. If you buy a salad, you must get the smaller size. However, if you buy the larger size, you must divide it up into two meals.
7. If you get hungry, eat a piece of fruit in-between meals

I think this is doable and let's enter the new year lean for 2015!

    The Great American Smokeout 2014


    I love this picture because it reminds me how my sisters and I used to taunt my dad to get him to stop smoking.  After many years of harassing and destroying his cigarette packs, he gave it up, unfortunately my uncle did not and died of lung cancer.  

    November 17th is the day to put down the cigarettes, e-cigarettes and cigars for The Great American Smokeout. Hopefully, this will lead to a permanent change. Below are some of the things you can do to quit forever:

    1. Try Nicorette gum
    2. Go cold turkey(just quit suddenly)
    3. Join a support group

    For more helpful advice, read Quitting Smoking: 10 ways to resist tobacco cravings by the Mayo Clinic.


    The jury is still out about the effects of electronic cigarettes on one's health.  I for one am not against it, especially if it stops you from smoking.  I wish this product was around when my dad's brother was living, it might have saved his life.  

    What are your thoughts on The Great American Smokeout or electronic cigarettes?
