Thank you to Savings.com for sponsoring this conversation.
Are you looking to lose weight or just get healthy? What are you doing to get you towards your goals of a healthy lifestyle? Are you writing them down? Are they realistic and reasonable? Are you in a place where you’re ready to commit to a healthy lifestyle? If not why not? Check out my 5 Reasons you should stay on a path to health.
1. If you’re unhappy with the way your life is moving then now is the time to change it. Don’t wait. I’ve been unhappy with my fitness and my health. I’ve decided that this last month was the perfect time to work on it. So what did I do? I joined a face-book group that would keep me accountable with my food and my fitness. I’ve lost 7 pounds. I’m feeling great. Change what you’re doing wrong and find someone to keep you accountable is the first step to health.
2. Take your Nature’s Bounty Vitamins. We are huge fans of Nature’s Bounty. I love their B complex and their D vitamins specifically. What I love is that they help me with my health goals. The B complex vitamins give me a boost in the day so I can get all that I have to do done. Why not grab their $1 off coupon here and get started with them? The coupon expires on 9/12 so make sure you print it and use it soon.
3. Find a way to increase your water consumption. I’m a huge soft drink drinker. Well, I was. I’ve made a commitment to drinking more water and less soda. It’s not been easy but it’s worth it and it’s so important for your health. You should not be dehydrated at night when you go to bed. It’s just not good for you. So make a commitment to drink more water every day. Start slow and increase it just a cup or two extra per day. It’s 7:17 pm here tonight. I’ve already had 5 glasses of water today. I was used to drinking all soda or all sweet tea. Not a good plan. Increase your water and increase your way to good health.
4. Increasing your workouts will help you to live a healthy lifestyle. Since I joined that Facebook accountability group I’ve managed to get in 3-4 workouts per week for at least 45 minutes each time. But you start where you are first. So if you’re not used to working out make sure you walk or just do some simple stretches until you can increase it gradually and you’ll be working out for 30-45 minutes 3-4 times a week in no time.
5. Last but not least make sure you are eating enough vegetables. Salad, vegetables and fruit are what keep you feeling full longer. The more you eat them the less you’ll want to snack. I make it a point to increase my protein and decrease my sugars this last month. It’s working. I am eating more veggies than I think I ever have. It’s working out great for me.
