For those of you in the US, have a wonderful Labor Day! If you are not in the US, Happy September 1st!
I hope the weather cooperates and you get to have fun with family and friends outside. If you are going to a barbecue or picnic today, remember to make healthier choices:
- Think 1 burger, not two
- Have one beer, not six
- Have some raw veggies, instead of chips and dip
- Skip the potato and macaroni salad and have some fruit instead
- Have one small piece of cake, not a huge chunk with a bowl of ice cream
Whether you are at a party, or just at home, make today an active day.
Get up early and go for a walk or run. Take a bike ride or jump rope. Play tennis with your kids, go swimming before the pools close up, do some yoga, or spend extra time enjoying your brand new Wii Fit!
