Spring into next year with a gift or two for you. Hey, you're worth it!
A Membership to the Y: Treat your body to a healthy workout environment. Consumer Reports found that local community centers like the YMCA got higher scores from members on their experiences than fancy commercial gym chains.
A Quality Pair of Shoes: Invest in a pair of high quality shoes you can wear for a range of activities. If you're comfortable, you're more likely to workout. If you don't know where to start try Asics. They tested high in trials for both men and women.
Inexpensive Home Fitness Equipment: a stability ball, light dumbbells, an exercise mat and a couple of good exercise dvds can motivate you to work out on your own during those snowy winter nights.
A Bottle of Wine: Red or white, take your pick. Researchers say that you can protect your heart and possibly ward off diseases. Moderation is the key!
Guilt-Free Munchies: You don't have to give up all snacks to keep your body in tip top shape, you just need to snack smart. Try 100 Calorie packs, reduced fat crackers, or low fat microwave popcorn.
A Brighter Smile: If professional teeth whitening isn't in the budget try at-home tooth whiteners.
