    How do you stay healthy besides running?

    Your comment on Mighty Mom about the fast food industry and obesity is very astute. You are correct, it is a matter of  exercising and strengthening ones discipline, and the eating choices we make.  It does make it hard with all the tactics they use to get us in the door.  I have to admit myself I tend to eat there every opportunity, but I only blame myself for the results.  I have however begun to take action to correct this behavior.  Thanks for being so honest. Take care God bless

    Power walking for just 20 minutes a day is very good for you.  Eat at home, controlling portions and what you fix.  Walking is fun, in bad weather I go to the mall, love window shopping.  I only buy a drink, not eat at the food court.  Happy health!

    Staying healthy takes persistence and determination. Make up your mind you will exercise in some way every single day - even if it means just jogging for five minutes at a time three times a day in your own home or jumping rope.
    Don't forbid yourself from a small treat once in awhile. Forbidding sweets entirely makes them much more attractive. And most importantly follow some sort of healthy diet plan. See the four most popular plans in my hub, "Obesity is Widespread."
    Good luck!
