Tuesday, November 16, 2004; Page HE05

Here's a checklist to help you get ready for the Holiday Challenge:

1. Assemble your tool kit. To get yourself moving a little more and control what you eat, make sure you have the following, as appropriate:

• comfortable walking or workout shoes

• workout clothes, including outdoor wear if appropriate

• measuring cups and spoons

• a kitchen scale

• a clear space to work out at home

• a pedometer, if you like

• a tape or CD player for listening to books or music while working out

• any exercise equipment you plan to use: jump-rope, exercise bands, dumbbells, stability ball, yoga mat, exercise videos, etc.
