Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving without any of those "saboteurs."

Let's talk about getting more active or staying active during the rest of the holiday season. Sometimes we get into the same old same old routine and we get bored with the exercise we are doing.

Maybe a new toy will help. When we get something new it is fun to try it out and see how it works. Remember when you were a kid getting new roller skates, or a hula hoop, or a new ball to play with. All these things made us want to run around and play.

Let's see what could we get as adults? Maybe a new CD or DVD (you can buy one, we have some great ones at Weight Watchers or you could take one out at the library). How about a pedometer to try and walk a little more each day. You may find that shopping takes a lot of steps!!!! A new pair of sneakers can make activity more comfortable.

Remember moving more can mean losing more.

Here is an interesting pie recipe that is core.

6 servings - 2 points per serving and core

1 oz fat free sugar free instant banana pudding and pie filling mix
2 cups fat free evaporated milk
1 cup strawberries, thinly sliced, divided
2 medium kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

1. Prepare pudding according to package directions but use fat free evaporated milk instead of regular skim milk.
2. Cover bottom of a 9 inch glass pie plate with a layer of sliced strawberries.
3. Pour pudding on top of strawberries. Smooth pudding surface with a wooden spoon and garnish with remaining strawberries and with Kiwi slices. Refrigerate pie for at least 2 hours. Slice into 6 pieces and serve immediately.

See you at the meeting.
