This is our gift to our beautiful and busy Healthgist gals, who like us… haven’t even started Christmas (or Hanukkah) shopping yet.

  • Dear Dr. Bola, I wanted to wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday season. I hope you are now settled into your desert home.

    I have a question about the Move More Challenge. Is this the same program as last year? I have faithfully followed the tips you gave then, and this sounds like the same or similar program.

    Please keep up the good work, as I certainly enjoy the articles that you and Dr. Carol write. I have done my best to share with others about Healthgist and encourage them to join as well.

    I wish you all the best.

    • Ms. Parker,

      Thanks for the well wishes. We are doing our best to settle in here in the desert. Still working through some boxes and putting things where they belong.

      Yes it’s the same Move More Challenge which you already have “lifetime” access to so you are set.

      Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
