LEAP >>>>>>Into Better HEALTH!!!

This week we have that extra day in February --- yes I’m talking about the leap year 2012…. It’s a day that comes around once every 4 years --- this week is that week!

Rather than looking at it as just another Wednesday --- Perhaps we should look at it as an extra day that comes around --- It’s a bonus day --- a day for those of us who are planners should go unaccounted for.

So here’s my challenge to you this Wednesday --- take a five minutes of the day --- to take Stock on your health status --- check all the portfolios --- blood pressure, optimal heart rate, body fat, BMI, waist size, diet habits, exercise routine.

--- Take mental notes…then answer the question


If the answer is yes; then I urge you to celebrate this bonus day that comes once every four years around…. Celebrate it with a smile, celebrate it someone dear to you, celebrate it because --- its your life!

If the answer is no; then perhaps you can use this bonus day to make the commit towards improving the not so optimal you… get into an exercise based program, find a exercise buddy, make that long awaited trip to the dietitian or just make that promise to yourself.

And if you don’t know where to go…..
