January 8, 2008 - Phyllis Sigal
What a beautiful day it was today (Tuesday). I walked to Center Wheeling for a meeting and walked past so many people out for a lunchtime stroll in the 70-something degree January day.

If winter weather were this nice more often, just think how healthy we'd all be — we could all walk for 30 minutes or so every day on our lunch hours.

Because it is that time of year when we all strive to be better (as in healthier), I even walked for 40 minutes early this morning and am on my second bottle of water and just ate a handful of almonds. Soon, I'm heading to yoga class.

Having had some time over the holidays to catch up on magazines, I read issues of "Health" and "Weight Watchers" and "Body & Soul" last week, all of which gave me lots of food for thought, so to speak.

Eat almonds. Eat blueberries. Don't eat dairy and carbohydrates for a few weeks to jumpstart some weight loss.

Walk 30 minutes a day for five days a week. Or more.

Jump up and down 10 times a day (for stronger bones.)

Relax. Focus. Exercise. Eat right. Eat better. Eat less. Eat more. Eat this. Eat that. Meditate. Run a marathon.

Oh, there are so many ways in which we can improve!

But, my favorite article suggested a resolution of "just being happy with yourself."

Yea, right. I'll see what I can do. But, that one may take more work than any of them!
