Saturday...health...WHYs?

Nope...not me. Please, don't expect ME to be "wise"!
O, I know I've got LOTS to learn!  That's the reason
it's... "WHYs" - NOT "wise"!
I'm just thinking that there are times we ask ourselves,
"Why is thinking of ways to be healthy all
that important?"
Blogging about ways to become healthier will be fun,
(oh...come on, sure it will... be fun!)...
 It'll be fun making discoveries... looking for info on healthy "STUFF"
...like blogs, websites, books, magazine articles, and writings of
others who have been successful in their health journeys.
I'd like to include stories about others who - even in difficult circumstances
still make their lives the best it can be.  Reading about and positive
thinking can make us feel better...
Send me email if you have ideas for me to post too! =)
My hope is that you will share this journey with me. I mean,
 don't you want to put just a leeetle more "health" in your life?
The other goal, besides discovering new ideas to share with you,
is that we can encourage each other as we make steps towards
our individual goals (even if they are small steps.
(and...this is sort of my way of begging, crying out, kneeling on
bended knee....for your help and support =P)
SO....
It would AWEsome, WUNNYfull, STUpendous!...if,
YOU are willing to share by leaving comments
about YOUR successes so that we can applaud...and about your
small steps back, so that we can encourage.
If there are those who would like to do their own blog posts about
healthy journeys, weight loss, or other - then, in the future I can put
a linky gadget or something so that we can all read each other's posts

**Food Idea **

Quick "Cheese Cake" Cookie

1 - pkge Cream Cheese
     ( I use Laughing Cow Cream cheese for  lower calories)
1-2 pkgs of Graham Crackers (depends on how much stuff you put in each one)
1/3 cup of a spreadable fruit (preserves)...like Smucker's "simply fruit"
      (the reason I use this is because there is less sugar and more fruit)
      (you can use more or less preserves to your own taste)
----let cream cheese soften so as to mix in the spreadable fruit.
----then, spread onto one square of the graham cracker - use the other square to create
      "sandwich"
----make as many sandwiches as you can and put them all into large ziplock baggies
----let set overnight - the graham crackers will become soft

Okay...I have to admit it isn't JUST like a REAL cheese cake.  But, it is a healthier...less fattening choice =)

Keep up the good work. I start my cardiac rehab in a week and I am looking forward to doing better with my exercising.

Love what you are doing. It is always nice to know there are lots of people just like me out there trying to be a bit more healthy. I have been trying to lose fat forever but I have good exercise habits now. The food habits are a bit more tricky to work out. I post to my 'battle of the bulge' blog each month or two.

Writing about what I have done helps me realise that I am actually making some progress even if it is only a little bit.

Sugar does affect us so much, doesn't it? DD came today and we had bad stuff. I expect to be tired tomorrow. I am going to try to flood it away...water, water, water...and walk as much as the toddler will allow.
