I know so many of us are eager to make ourselves over for the New Year. Better diet, more exercise, less stress. These are all great but sometimes we stall out before we're even through February. I propose that you throw all of that out and make a few minor changes that can have a BIG impact in your fitness level and quality of life. Here's the list:
|Winter ice skating burns 400 calories per hr. Bring water along!|
#2. Get up 1/2 hour earlier than usual. Use that extra 30 minutes to stretch, make a healthy smoothie, go for a walk, etc. The extra time to yourself at the start of your day will have a positive impact on the rest of it. If you're already sleep deprived, turn in 1/2 hour earlier.
#3. Eat some GOOD FAT + Protein in the morning. Here's another area where we tend to get into a rut. If you are trying to lose a few pounds try a high protein smoothie with coconut water, almond butter (rich in calcium & antioxidants) or Sunbutter Sunflower Seed Spread. If you like shrimp, salmon, avocados, pecans and other healthy foods like these, eat them! Add healthy fats like organic Coconut Oil to your diet and you'll actually lose fat, be less hungry and unlikely to binge. They will also help with inflammation which often stands in the way of healthy weight loss.
