Celebrate Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us, so it’s a time for many to get ready for relaxation and recharging during their much-needed break from work. Here are a couple suggestions for your holiday weekend!

If shopping is on your to-do list this weekend, look no further than the Lakewood Center. There’s something for absolutely everyone (plus some stores have the lovely labor day sales going on, so take advantage)! It’s also good to do when you’re trying to escape the heatwave going on this weekend. If the heat doesn’t bother you a bit, you can head out to Liberty Park & Fitness Center. There are playgrounds and a splash pad for the kiddos, fitness stations, picnic areas, a disc golf course, plus many other options for anyone in your group. Just remember the sunscreen and water!

From all of us here at Park Del Amo Apartments, have a fun and safe weekend with those you love!

3 Secrets For Staying Active and Fit During the Holidays

We have a choice this holiday season: we can give up on our diets and just enjoy the gluttonous eating or resolve to stay fit and active by working out and eating right. Sure, the first option is fun, but let’s try to be healthy over the next few months. 


Walk before or after meals: Most health experts tout the 10,000 steps a day routine. So be sure to go for walks before or after meals. The walking will help your metabolism work overtime and burn off all that yummy holiday food.


Stay Hydrated: Resolve to quit soda and all those other sugary drinks (or at least keep them to a minimum). The water will keep you full well also cleaning out our system.  


Eat Veggies: veggies are low calorie and will satiate your appetite as well. Also be sure to stay away from the carbs, which just turn into sugar and add to your weight again.
