If you ever meet me in person…

and we sit down to talk, the conversation will eventually get around to healthy living! I love to talk about nutrition and exercise…rest and relaxation! I read every article I can find and for the most part I ‘practice what I preach’!


(I look goofy in this photo but it was the quickest one I could find…taking a Zumba class this week!)

I’ve enjoyed Kim’s blog, Snug Harbor Bay for a long time and I was always happy when she featured Tony’s Tips.

(she says this is her son, but she looks too young to be the mom so you go over and see for yourself! I thought he was her brother!)

And now I am pleased to announce he has his own blog,

Tony’s Nutrition and Fitness Tips.

Misc 134

He has done his ‘homework’ and writes from his own experiences AND from information he gathers. Everything he talks about is easy to understand and to put into practice! These are changes we can make to be healthier! Be sure and read ‘his story’, too so that you can understand where he’s coming from.

I’m going to keep this short and skip all of the ‘tips’ I could share to give you a chance to visit his blog!

What a great way to start the month! Find some positive tips on his blog and put them into practice in your own daily life! You’ll be glad you did…and feel better for the effort!

Do you need to lose weight or maintain your weight? Do you  need to get more exercise and sleep better at night? Could you do better with your food choices? What areas of healthy living are you most interested in?

PS If you want to receive a card or note from me this month, go to my post HERE and let me know!

Thanks for the links! Do you like Zumba? It looks like fun but I'm afraid to try! Staying healthy is a big part of my life, it's a challenge to me now with as with this pregnancy I'm supposed to be taking it easy. Not exercising makes me a little cranky!

laurie said...

We should not be surprised that people know so little about good nutrition, considering the fact that we've been told for a few decades to focus our diet on grains and stay away from fat. And the result? America became obese and ridden with Type 2 Diabetes. Always great to hear of helpful nutrition tips. Keep up the good work!

Happy@Home said...

You and I could have a great conversation as I have always been interested in nutrition. You look happy and healthy at your Zumba class.
Thanks for the link. How neat to read a nutrition/health blog written by a young man.

Vee said...

How timely. We just began our new eating program today. Thanks, Diane!

Marydon said...

Oh, gosh! Eating healthy means I'd have to give up See's chocolates! Kidding!

My friends love zumba ... you look mah-va-lus sweet friend.

Have a beautiful day ~

Ginger Zuck said...

Lookin good Diane in that Zumba class. Great tip and I will definitely check out his site. Thanks for the info.

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Thanks for the link, Diane. It is always wonderful to learn something new about our health.


TheRustyThimble said...

Oh Diane I would love to meet you in person and sit and chat with you.

Off to check out the links thank you for sharing, and to see what your card or note post is, Where have I been ? LOL


Reena Walkling said...

Great links and yes to all your questions! But then, I'm working on better habits. Just not fair that the older we get the more we have to exercise and the less we get to eat!

michelle said...

You look adorable and look like you are having so much fun! I love Kim and her blog and Tony's tips are wonderful, he is so informed and so inspiring. I need to get back exercising, I fell off the wagon around Christmas. :)

Kim K. said...

Keep the inspiration coming. Darling photo of you too.

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Maybe you should do your own health blog since you are such an inspiration to all of us, no matter the age. You look very fit and always look happy. I think most of us need to live healthier lifestyles. Thanks for the info. Have a happy, healthy, productive day my friend!!----- Shannon

I have heard about Zumba (get up too early any day of the week and there's an infommercial). Yesterday I checked out the Basics video at our library to see if I would like this. When I read your post I went in and got started. Ouch! I've got lots of work ahead of me. May have to find a more gentle exercise video. Thanks for the inspiration.

Della said...

You do NOT look goofy in that photo!

I am a big fan of Kim and Tony. I admire her spirit of adventure, and I'm amazed at Tony's adult attitude and maturity. He is one smart kid!

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Diane: You look adorable and you make me what to try Zumba! Thanks so much for featuring Tony's blog today. What a nice surprise and he really appreciates the boost!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Since being healthier is one of the changes I'm wanting to implement this year I will go over and read his blog for sure! Hugs, Linda


Hello Diane!
I think it's great that you featured Tony's Tips on your blog! I can tell you and your readers that Tony is the real deal! In my profession I deal with nutrition extensively and I am constantly surprised at the "on target" knowledge and advice that Tony offers consistently. He is not only a living example of what proper eating and exercise can do for you, he is passionate about helping others! I am his biggest fan and follow his blog and read everything! I even learn a few things myself from him and to think he's only 18 or 19 years old! he has a huge future!
Anyway, you have a great blog here that just got better! keep up the great work!

Hi Diane, Oh your look so happy having fun with zumba. I love healthy living too and stay active everyday and work to make good food choices. Every little thing helps. Last month I started shadow boxing and love it.
Thank you for sharing the link.

Happy February.
XO Celestina Marie
