A Little Gift List for a Healthier You!

I don't know about you, but I have been getting lots of questions lately as to what I want for Christmas. Yes, I know many of you are already done shopping, but my husband and kids usually wait to get in on all the fun and excitement of the last minute shopping for just the right gifts, probably due to a good dose of busy schedules and procrastination. Of course, I do the shopping for most everyone, and they just shop for 1 or 2 people, but let's not get into that!


It occurred to me that it would be good to come up with a list of gifts that would make reaching our health goals easier, or at least more fun. I will definitely need your help on this one. I'll begin the list, and you send in your ideas. Ready?
