Jill Bailey I drink water all day because I’d rather eat my calories than drink them! Virgina bernero I like to go directly from work to my gym or fitness activity. Planning on going straight from my office to my workout class is a sure way to make sure I don’t find an excuse not to get to the gym when I get home! Kyle Dowling Walk your dog every day for additional exercise and fun for your pup! Tiffany Dowling I like to use smaller plates and bowls to keep portions right sized. Brooke Erwin Every morning I do my best to drink a full glass of ice cold water. This helps kick start your metabolism, flushes out toxins and helps fuels your brain. Your body is thirsty after six to eight hours of sleep, so drink up! Michael France When I worked on the 4th floor of an office building I always took the stairs. I still avoid elevators for the exercise and never miss an opportunity to get up from my desk if I have time. Manny Garcia Water … drinking water instead of pop always. Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body. Two glasses of water after waking up — helps activate internal organs. One glass of water 30 minutes before a meal — helps digestion. One glass of water before taking a bath — helps lower blood pressure. One glass of water before going to bed — avoids stroke or heart attack. Jaime Hardesty To avoid a dry scalp try washing your hair every other day. Jennifer Hodges I recommend getting a lot of rest. Sleep not only makes you feel better, itﾕs also an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Also, brushing your teeth can lessen your risk of developing heart disease. Ami Iceman Go to bed early. Having some kind of routine around bed time helps me unwind from the day and relieves stress so I can wake up ready to start fresh! Skylar Kohagen Keep your water bottle full and on your desk, anytime itﾕs low, refill it. Having it within your view may encourage you to drink more water. Zack Krieger We always cook with extra virgin olive oil, never butter or margarine. Kalynne McIntyre I try to get up and stretch for about 10 minutes when I first wake up in the morning. Itﾕs an easy and relaxing way to wake up since Iﾕm not a morning person, and it relaxes my muscles before I get ready for work, which is always a nice way to start the day. Penny Meadows I take 5000 IU of Vitamin D daily. Vitamin D improves resistance to diabetes, heart attacks, arthritis, cancer and osteoporosis. Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin. Doesn’t everyone need more sunshine in their life? Kristine Richmond Portion control is key. A friend told me once she lost weight by just following the portion sizes on the boxes or jars or packages of your food. Simple yet effective.
