With a full house over New Year’s that kept us on our feet hour after hour, we were ready to experience some tender loving tootsie care, which is why Innkeeper Ilja had lined up Lise Grondin Danault, a reflexologist who offers ionic detox foot baths, as our weekly guest, assisted by Tamar Smookler, a certified massage therapist and owner of Inner Truth Massage in Littleton.

Many health practitioners believe that the feet are the foundation of a healthy body. If that’s true, then we all walked away from the evening’s program just a little bit healthier.

The pounds continue to come off, slowly but surely, and the group consensus is that we’ve embarked on a good program. Feedback has been positive. Comments from some in our group:
Kathleen has enjoyed the program, especially the nutritionist. “The program has been worth it, just to learn that stuff.”
“I like it,” says Orlo. “I’ve lost weight and am eating better. Now that the holidays are over, the next step is real aggressive exercise. I don’t miss what I’ve dropped out of my diet as much as I though I would.”
Peet says he’s “enjoying it and learning a bunch.”
Brad is more aware of what he’s eating and how he’s exercising. “You can’t let excuses get in the way.”
“I knew it was going to be good,” says Tinah. “It’s given me more information than I had. It makes you stop and think about what you put in your mouth. We’re all set in our ways. The program has helped us step out of the box.”
Peet contributed our healthy snack this week, a large plate of crisp celery and carrot sticks accompanied by a small bowl of Ranch dressing, which everyone scoffed down. It was simple and delicious and proves that you don’t have to follow a complicated recipe to have a satisfying and good-for-you snack. A real winner!
Next week is the 6th week of the “Ten Years Younger in 60 Days” program. Innkeeper Ilja hasn’t let us know what the program will be (we love surprises!), but based on past programs it’s sure to be both inspiring and educational. Everyone is feeling “in the groove” and making good strides toward their goals.
