Do something Friday

Picture from Gretchen Rubin at The Happiness Project
No matter what your plan is for the weekend -- more movement is a good thing.  Movement burns calories, makes you more sensitive to insulin (ie less diabetic), and helps one differentiate physical hunger from boredom.

I don't know where you are but our weather here looks like it should be decent enough to get outside both days this weekend.  (have you noticed how late sunset times are getting!)

This weekend, get yourself outside and move.  Even if it's just for a few minutes, consider it a dose of medicine.  We're well on our way to wrapping this winter up and moving on to spring but until that happens, it's very likely most of us our going to be using the last of our will power to stay out of the kitchen because all we want to do it munch away the boredom of the gloomy, damp, grey weather.

Not for you!  Not this weekend!  Get outside and burn some energy.  I bet when you get back inside, you won't feel quite like you need to eat a sleeve of saltines just to make it through the next boring hour.
