Stay Active

Between Thanksgiving feasts and Christmas spreads, maintaining your regular waistline might become a bit of a challenge. After meals, go on walk around your neighborhood or plan an active family-centered game event to keep your body moving.

Avoid the holiday weight gain and keep your immune system lifted by standing firm on your traditional workout routine.

  1. I’m sick right now. Everyone in my house had a cold. I thought I was in the clear because it had been a 1 1/2 week and I’ve been taking vitamin C for 8 weeks, but now I’m sick as a dog w/ chills, stuffy nose, body aches, headache and all. Their colds were mild, but it is hitting me hard.

    One thing that does work for sure is drinking 4 ounces of red wine every day, or grape juice for those who do not drink alcohol. I think the acid makes it hard for the virus to live in your gut. I volunteered at my son’s school while a major stomach bug was going around and my nor my kids have gotten sick because we drink grape juice (sometimes wine for me) every day. My little cousin also had to spend the night 2 weeks ago and he had a stomach bug, and my whole family avoided it. I’ve been doing this for four years and it has worked very well for me. (There have been times when I could tell my body was trying to get rid of something because I might have skinny bowels or unusual gas for a day, but the wine has always kept the virus from getting crazy.)
