Wellsphere(r) Healthy Living Tips

I love getting healthy living tips in my inbox. I like how it gets me going, gives me new meal and exercise ideas and just motivates me to do what I know I need to do or just motivates me to move.  I'd like to share one of my favorite emails... Wellsphere(r) is a website full of great information about many different topics relating to healthy living and wellness. Go check it out. You'll like it too.

Healthy Cooking: Focus your entrée on vegetables
Select a vegetable main dish, and add other foods to complement.

Exercise: Try interval training
Do bursts of vigorous or intense activity for 2-3 minutes, followed by 3-4 minutes of moderate activity. Repeat.

Organic & Sustainable: Watch for pests:
Watch for the Japanese beetles to arrive when the morning glory vines start to climb.

Weight Loss: Applesauce is a fat substitute
In a baking recipe, use applesauce in place of 1/2 the fat to create a low-fat baking recipe.

Fitness for Moms: Set an example
Your children take their cues from you, so show them how important it is to make regular exercise a part of their lives.

Healthy Eating: Avoid packaged foods with added sugars
Check the ingredients for any kind of sugar, sucrose, glucose, dextrose, corn syrup, honey, and fructose.

Strength Training: Sore is normal
It's normal to feel sore when you first start strength training.
