A Healthy Heart

O.K. so you know I am on this health kick, along with so many other people, and I use Spark People to help me. Well.... I just read this article about 5 steps to a healthier heart. The 5 steps seem to be very managable.

1. Know your numbers
2. Start exercising... 20 minutes a day
3. Laugh, yep LAUGH!!!! 15 minutes of laughter equals about 30 minutes of aerobic exercise
4. Pay more attention to your waistline than your weight( throw that scale out)
5. Get adequate sleep

I hope these 5 steps can help you on your way to a healthier person. The whole article can be found at in the Health News section

Cabin Fever

Well, for the past week, I have been homebound due to icy weather here in Georgia. The schools were closed and we were told to stay home if we really didn't have to go I stayed in.

Now most quilters would have been glad about this, but for some reason, I could only finish 3 projects and then it was like,"what's next".

The next thing for me was to just hang out at home with hubby, who was also on vacation!!!!. That too got a little old then I went to the Wii and began playing video games. This was a true test of me being able to entertain my self and not go into cabin fever.

This did lead me to thanking God that I am not homebound all of the time and I can go out when I want to. Isn't it interesting the things that God can bring to the surface!!!!
