Replacement Resolution: You made a resolution and didn't keep it. So what! We're going to replace those lost, fell-short-of, or "I forgot" resolutions and go simple. Go healthy. Go good. We're going to pack in the applesauce a little bit at a time. And we're going to use applesauce to replace (now say it with me!!!) Chips! High calorie snack bars! Candy! Ice Cream! You get the gist of it? How can we do this? Well, my technique is to purchase those little six-packs of individual cups of applesauce. No refrigeration needed. They tote well. They tuck into a desk drawer well. They fit into a lunch box (bag, pail, box, whatever) well. Dad can do it. Junior can do it. Sis can do it. Mom can do it
Musselmans Applesauce has provided me with three six-packs of applesauce: natural, cinnamon, and original. And they are so good! Also, they sent me a wonderful exercise ball.
Musselman has given me the opportunity to participate in their "Replacement Resolution" promotion. I am honored to be their representative in this wonderful promotion. The gist of it is you simply replace high calorie or high fat snacks with Musselman's applesauce. The result will be fewer fat grams, fewer calories, less sugar, lower sodium in your diet and hopefully a healthier you!
Along with the "Replacement Resolution" is the premise that if we get moving and exercise in whatever way we can (according to our health, age, and ability) and we replace snacks with applesauce, we will get stronger and we will get healthier. Now that's a goal I can aim for. Another resolution of mine is to drink more water. We have exceptionally good well water at our home and it is filled with minerals. So this is another good replacement resolution. Less soft drinks and more water!
Being a Southern-lady-of-a-certain-age, I'm really not into getting all hot and sweaty. I've never really exercised much - beyond taking care of the house and a bit of walking. So I need to get up and get moving. Well, Musselmans is going to be helping me with that, too. They sent me a big fat yoga ball. I inflated it with the little pump that came with it and proceeded to introduce myself to it's glories.
- Step 1 is you inflate it
- Step 2 is you go online and find out how to use it - especially if you're in the "senior" category like I am.(Isn't Google great!)
- Step 3 is you sit on the ball and try not to fall off. Oops! You did! You get back on and find you CAN balance on it and move your arms a bit. You can sit and do leg raises and some upper body twists. Tomorrow is another day, and you WILL try it again.
- Step 4 is you make sure you replace those fat snacks and high calorie snacks with applesauce. (I'm a step ahead on this one because I stock my desk at work with two or three little cups of applesauce at all times.)
