Fabulous Fitness Friday, Tip #10

You PROBABLY have today off, right? Let's just assume you do.

SO, now that we've all gorged ourselves on excessive amounts of turkey, cranberries, stuffing, candied yams, green bean casserole, homemade bread, creamed corn, potatoes au gratin, apple pie, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, and cherry pie (and that was only for "dinner" - let's not forget about the breakfast out so we didn't have to do those dishes and the "taste-testing" up until dinner, plus the multiple late night snacks since we MUST eat Thanksgiving dinner hours before we'd normally be eating dinner...), now that we've all done that, let's use our day off wisely.

Take a long walk, play some pick-up football, throw a frisbee, actually use the basketball hoop out in front of your house despite the fact that your kids (and neighbors) will give you odd looks, jump in the leftover leaves that fell after the last street pick-up and will thus remain until Spring, and of course, wash all 358 dishes piled on your counter from yesterday.


  1. I just saw your profile and it says encephalitis research? What kind of research do you do? I had a friend die from encephalitis back in 2002. It was sad.

  2. Gawd I hate your Friday health posts. I comment because I love you but I truly want to punch you in the larynx.

    Have a great day!

  3. It's just like we really are blood sisters, Chief!! Ahh...don't you just love having family around for the holidays?? =)

  4. Boob Nazi - I was going to send you a separate e-mail but you seem to be one of the few smart bloggers out there that doesn't have an easily accessible e-mail address. Humph!

    So, short answer, yes I do general encephalitis research through a Multiple Sclerosis clinic here in Michigan. If you have other questions please feel free to e-mail me (I'm much easier to stalk than you are, but here's my e-mail anyway:

    And I'm so sorry about your friend! I hope that will be the last tragedy you have to experience for quite awhile.
