Good afternoon Friends,
As I was getting ready for the day, I was thinking of some SIMPLE health tips that many of you may not be doing, but should be.
Even though I say SIMPLE, I don’t actually mean SIMPLE. These tips are simple to follow, but also simple to push aside and forget about. In fact, I even have a hard time following them.
Get into the groove of doing these 5 tips, and I bet you’ll start feeling a noticeable difference in your body.
Curb Those Cravings- This is probably the hardest thing for me to do. Since I was a wee one, I have loved food more than anything in this world. Yes, food is GOOD, food is GREAT. But it’s time to kick some of those cravings to the curb (pun intended). We all crave those late night snacks. In fact, let me tell you a story in relation to this first tip.
My dad is the worst when it comes to snacking. He eats all day long. Last night he got up not once, but twice to eat Tres Leches cake. Just so you know, that is one of my favorite desserts. He kept asking if I wanted some KNOWING I’m trying to cut down on my snack intake. I told him NO (as I’m squinting my eyes at him), and I think I died a little bit inside.
Regardless, I went to go brush my teeth. Why? Because once I do this, that’s it. I’m done for the night. No eating.
So I recommend brushing your teeth early on in the night, so you won’t have those urges to snack. Also, drink a big glass of water to fill you up, or take a shower to distract you. If you still have the urges, like me, (as I put a plate of pizza rolls in the microwave) take a hunger suppressant. These bad boys can help suppress your appetite, plus you can take them after a cheat meal. They are wonderful on the body. Check them out here.
Hello H2O- Oh water, how you keep popping up. I’ve mentioned this in my post before because I definitely think this is the MOST important, yet most overlooked tip. Water is the best and most natural detox for your body. If you hate drinking water, do what I do. Slice up some strawberries and watermelon. Put them in a big pitcher of water and let it sit over night. This gives your water a sweet taste and it is AWESOME. I recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces a day. You can do it!
Portion Control- Another one of my weaknesses. I love to pile my plate high. Who else loves to do this?! Especially if you are starvation nation (as my Mom says). I just came back from a conference not too long ago, and the nutrition guru mentioned to never eat a portion bigger than your palm. There you go. If you have big hands, lucky you.
Also, use a smaller plate. Therefore, you are forced to eat smaller portions instead of having a choice. My mom used to tell me, you are full 20 minutes before you feel it; and I believe that!
Stock up on these!- Ever heard of Greens? If not, you’re missing out. I take these with half a bottle of water every day. What does it do? It detoxes your body, gives you your servings of fruits and veggies, and alkalizes your body. So far, it has improved my overall mood and energy. You can’t keep your body healthy, if it is full of toxins. Submit your info here, and get a free sample from me!
Buy Workout Clothes- I don’t know about you, but everytime I buy a new set of workout clothes, it motivates me to want to exercise. We all get into that lull and start putting exercise to the side. Sooner or later, we forget about it all together, and convince ourselves that we don’t really need to exercise as much. STOP.
Find a way to get motivated. Go to “Ross”, pick out some new leggings and a sports bra, pick up an exercise DVD and tell yourself- you will look like those girls in the video. Because you can and you will!
Take all of these tips to heart, incorporate them into your daily activities, and you will experience an overall difference in your body. Health is SO important. Treat your body well, and in return it will treat you well back.
