CFP's Tips for a
HEALTHY & ACTIVE lifestyle~
  • Friends & Family: If you're planning an evening with friends, plan do get UP and do something together. For example, if you're having an evening in, try a dancing or sports related game, either on the TV or out of a board game. If you're trying to find something to do outside, try a game of Pickleball, or visit Sky High Sports!
  • Dinner: Eating a meal together often becomes the middle of any social gathering. Next time, try offering to bring the entree, and bring something you know YOU will feel okay eating and enjoying. Often the main dish is something that you don't want to go over board on, so make sure someone is providing a BIG green salad! As far as desserts go, try creating one that also not too heavy in sugar, you can find a lot of healthy & tasty desserts without sacrificing your progress. Remember, if you plan ahead you will be less likely to run into sticky situations of temptation. 
  • Date Night: Try to incorporate something out of your "normal," for example, try a sport you've never done before, or walk to the store to gather food items for dinner together, or test out a new yoga class together. Being active together will only aid in elevating your mood and overall health. With Valentine's day fast approaching, instead of offering your loved ones lots of sugar dense chocolates, try planning an activity together! Memories are always going to last longer than any chocolate dessert! 
  • Got any other easy, helpful hints that you practice in your daily life to keep you healthy & active? We'd love to hear from you! Send us back a reply to and we can share your ideas in our next newsletter.
