So much for loading up on Patriots in the NFL Playoff Challenge 2009! The Patriots lose 33-14. Well, at least the rest of my team were Cowboys! Cowboys crush the McEagles by just about the same score. So with my fantasy week completed, and my chances of winning the NFL Playoff Challenge and going to the Superbowl probably equally done, it is time to turn to those Resolutions!
‘Member those? It wasn’t that long ago that we made those annual pledges. Well, if you didn’t make any, there is still time to get those in! We’ve seen all sorts of recommendations lately, and even made some ourselves, but we really like this particular list from health.com (click here) for the sheer impressive volume! 50 of them! That is even more challenges than we have in our daily roster scorecard! But, ahem, we weren’t about to put knitting (tip #21) in our daily roster scorecard!
Actually, what we really like about this list is all the random little things that maybe you don’t think about as healthy. All the little tips and ideas that seem small and mundane taken alone, but add up to something really impressive. What can they add up to? You thinking about health, exercise, nutrition, etc. in your every day life throughout the day. For example, thought about the size of you plates before (tip #9)?! They were a wedding gift, right? They is what they is! Well, think again! Check out the 50 and tell us what you think by email or just comment below.
Now, let’s be realistic, cutting 500 calories a day is a nice title for an article, but how many of us, given our very busy schedules, have time to dance for two hours a day (tip #1) or clean the house for two and a half hours (tip #22)? I think the last time I cleaned the house for two and a half hours it was my college apartment and I was trying to get my security deposit back (hint: large can of spackle). And I think all that foot tapping (tip #34) would cause my office colleagues to have me committed.
But really there is some great stuff here. At Fantasy Healthball, rather than trying to cut 500 calories a day swimming laps (tip #37), we typically recommend going at it on two fronts – get some of it through exercise and some of it through diet. Read more here. Meanwhile, get out there and hit tip #40, you couldn’t do any worse than the guys I picked on my fantasy playoff team! — Jim Ballard
