Quote of the Month:
"Every decision you make - every decision - is not a decision about what to do. It’s a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do."
-- Neale Donald Walsch
Too much Sitting can Cause Premature Death
New studies now show the link between physical inactivity and unhealthy lifestyle diseases. But don't consider yourself immune if you exercise a couple of times a week. Sitting for more than 6 hours per day can undo the health benefits from your exercise routine.
If we have a sedentary job which chains us to a desk or requires us to sit in meetings all day, we need to become more active to protect ourselves from premature death.
Inactivity caused 5.3 million early deaths last year. That is more than smoking, which caused 5.1 million premature deaths last year.
Want to reduce your risk of developing an unhealthy lifestyle disease and premature death? Check out this article for easy ways to get moving in the office. Also, check out the video included in the article that shows how one office took this threat seriously and changed the way they work to become healthier and slimmer.

Recipe of the Month: Apple and Pork Casserole
My friend Jacquie gave me this recipe to try. It is a delicious casserole that is easy to assemble, but takes some time to bake. Perhaps a great dish to pre-cook and bring along at your next potluck dinner. Please note these amounts are estimates only as true amounts will depend on how much you need for each layer for the size casserole dish that you use. Note: May not be suitable for kids as it contains alcohol.
