It’s All About the Core!

Balance, Flexibility, Strength, Stability – These are key words that anyone over the age of 35 should be worried about.  Why? Because these capabilities all start declining as we age and THAT can cause serious problems later in life.  Strengthening one’s core, however, can help in this area. One of my friends started mat Pilates classes in August and in less than 2 months she noticed a significant difference (By the way, there are men in her class too).  Pilates Reformer classes are excellent as well. Although the Reformers might look a little intimidating, after one or 2 two sessions you will quickly get the hang of it.  As a side note, a critical aspect to this kind of exercise is that it is low impact and kind to your joints. So if you haven’t tried it before, read here for more convincing information on core strength and a few tips on what you can easily do in your own home to get you started.

Lower Your Grocery Costs – It’s Good for your Health!

 

There’s no doubt about it, grocery prices have really skyrocketed in the last couple of years.  One of the best ways to curb your grocery bill is to cut out processed foods. The more that goes into creating a product, the more producers charge; and let’s not mention the added ingredients like salt and high fructose syrup that really don’t do us any nutrition favors.

Another way to frugally spend is to shop local farm stands and farmers markets. The food will be higher quality (produce loses nutritive value over time) and you will be supporting the local economy. A win-win.  Here in New Jersey we will only have a few more weeks to take advantage of our wonderful farmers markets.  The tomatoes and corn are still coming in and now we have many varieties of apples to choose from. We love knowing that we what we are eating was just picked that morning. Read here for several other ways to cut your weekly grocery bill.
