Weight Control and You
Valentine's Day is almost here! Traditionally we give our loved ones presents of candy and flowers. All well and good for some, but for most of us not so good. We are still carrying around several pounds from the long holidays and the last thing we need is more candy! You can still have wonderful gifts, but you will have to Think Outside the Heart Shaped Box! Here are a few tips to get you started on your quest:
Give A Day Get A Disney Day
1. Arrange for both of you to Volunteer with a local charity like Habitat for Humanity and many others in your area. During this year, The Walt Disney Corporation is giving One Day One Park tickets to either Walt Disney World or Disneyland to people who volunteer for a variety of Charities. The program is called Give A Day Get A Disney Day . So be a hero to those in need and enjoy a day in one of the many Disney Parks with the one you love! Check out the Disney site to sign up and have fun!
2. If this is not your year for a Disney Park there are still options for gifts. Look for upcoming concerts and plays. Find one that would delight your special person and arrange a special dinner followed by the performance. Quality time with your sweetheart!
3. Gardens are important for the health of our planet as well as for us. Take a look at your yard and plan a new area for a vegetable garden or plant a new tree to provide shade for your home in the future.
4. Plan a day exploring local Farmers Markets and local Farms so you can find locally grown organic foods for meals each day. LocalHarvest.org can help you locate farms and farmers markets near you. Time well spent. Buy Foods that love you back. After you have purchased those wonderful fruits and vegetables, prepare a special meal for family and friends. Enjoy!
Now you have a few ideas of different ways you can say "I Love You!" without having to resort to the cliched box. Have fun, be creative and enjoy the blessings we have! Stay Well. Elise
