Adding daily activity, even during the busiest time of the year!

A great way to increase the amount of calories you burn and keep your weight under control is to add calorie burning activities to your daily routine. Especially at this time of year, when you’re constantly on-the-go and have a million things to do!

Shopping: Park in the furthest spot in the lot before you set off for your holiday shopping! This can burn more that 100 calories to your day.

Take the Stairs: If your office or appointments are on the upper levels, hit the stairs and give up the elevator.

Milk and Egg Run: Don’t buy these at the big supermarkets, take a brisk power walk to the variety store that is close to your home.

Take a Stand: Standing burns more calories than sitting. Start by standing during all phone calls; stand on your bus/subway rides; stand while waiting for your flight; stand up for one of your favourite TV shows. Stand to comfort your baby -a great tip for new moms who are trying to lose those extra pounds.

Remember fitness and calorie burning is cumulative - every movement you do adds up to a healthier you!!

 
Have a happy & healthy Holiday!

PS - The Shopping Channel’s Live Better Event kicks off first thing January 1st. We’re devoting the entire month to health, wellness & fitness solutions. Meet your goals, your way!

Taking the guess work out of my holiday wish list!

What’s on my wish list this year? Well, hope my friends and family are reading this!

I am probably the only one that does not own a digital camera and would LOVE one!! Our Canon 10MP Digital Camera has all the goodies to go with it too. Everything I would buy anyway and you get them included in one kit for me!

I also do so much driving. Back-and-forth to work on three major highways, and, on my days off either driving out to Hamilton to visit my aunt or to Niagara Falls to visit my mother. It would be so handy when the roadways are having a problem (which is often!) to have a GPS.

Love all my KitchenAid appliances — I have the Artisan Mixer in Red and the KitchenAid mini-chopper too. What I would LOVE in my kitchen is the KitchenAid Counter Top Oven. For quick heating up it would be wonderful, but I can cook whole meals in there too without turning on my gas stove. Sounds good to me!

So if any of my family and friends are indeed reading this, also remember we are still offering a minimum of 4 easy pays on every order — that makes it even easier to shop for me!

Richard
Happy Holidays to all!
