Move it!

Note for today to encourage YOU and ME:

Lots of water "kissed" with a Lemon & pinch of Cayenne! (amazing energy you'll get from )
Don't walk - skip, jog! Even when walking across a room exaggerate the movements
Don't just stand - Stretch, lunge, squat

Here is an Article I found by Denise Austin:



One reason I’ve stayed in such good shape over the years is because, in addition to regular exercise sessions, I keep moving. When I’m brushing my teeth, I’ll do squats. While I’m waiting for my toast to pop up, I’ll squeeze in 30 push-ups, leaning on the kitchen counter. Your muscles don’t know whether you’re exercising in gym clothes or not—they just know you’re working them. I do this to tone up and boost circulation throughout the day. I call these quick moves fidget-cisers,
and I swear they keep me fit. Check out 12 of my favorites. Check out exercises you can do around the house–no gym clothes needed. By Denise Austin Posted December 23, 2009 from Woman's Day; January 5, 2010

STOP, look up, take a deep breath and say.... "I don't N E E D it .... " Then SPEAK OUT any scripture verse: (Draw on the the LORD for Strength)
"Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones" Proverb 16:24

SALUTE! To your Health and Wellness

  1. I really like this! I'm going to start thinking more about moving while doing other things :) Funny how as a mother, I can sit and watch the kids play and jump around when that is what they want me to do is jump around and play and be active with them. By doing that I can kill two birds, so to speak :)
