Do these 8 things to have your Healthiest Fittest year!

  1. Ask your self Why? Why is this important to you? Internal why might be less joint/back pain, to avoid cancer (its scary how many people I know with cancer:), or to have a healthier gut. External why might be to fit into the jeans you haven’t been able to wear or to not look puffy and bloated.
  2. Have someone keep you accountable. It could be a family member, a friend or your trainer/coach. Make sure they have the same healthy goals and lifestyle mindset.
  3. Just eat “Real Food”. If it has a label don’t eat it often. Eat fruit, veggies, lean protein, and good fats. Sign up for this blog and you will get a 60-page download, “Eat Cleaner Get Leaner” with everything you will need to eat to get lean and healthy.
  4. Workout every day! No excuses, get up 10 minutes early, get out at lunch, do something after work. Everyone has at least 10 minutes. If you have a sitting job it is even more important for you to move. These workouts don’t always have to be hard, take an easy yoga class, take my Qi Gong class, take a walk in nature. Tips from one of our blog post.
  5. Get an App. To help you to get moving download an app on your phone. My Daughter has one that sends her a message every 2 hours with a couple of exercises to do. She does them at work throughout the day. Some of the apps that we use are Tabata, Sworkit Workout, wahoo 7-minute workouts, and 30-day fitness challenge. If you get one let us know if it helps you to workout more.
  6. Eat Superfoods. The more nutritious foods you eat the less likely you are to have cravings. Superfoods optimize your body’s ability to function by supplying a megadose of nutrients. Also, they improve the health of your skin and bones. Some superfoods are berries (wild berries get a star), coconut oil, collagen, local honey, greens (all kinds) spirulina, acai berries, sweet potatoes, wheatgrass, avocados, cinnamon, wild salmon and almonds are a few.
  7. Get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. Be in bed by 10:00 and sleep until 6:00. I know you hear this all the time but it is for your own good. I go to bed at 9:00 and get up at 5:00. It works great for me.
  8. OK, if you do all that you can treat yourself. Maybe by a new outfit for the leaner you, you could do a photo shoot with me for my fashion blog:). How about a night out at a fancy restaurant so you can dress and feel good in your clothes, or maybe a trip to a spa or some special place you’ve been wanting to go.

Consistency is most important. Stop trying all the fad diets out there and just eat real food. Get out and move every day. Everyone can do this. Leave a comment below so we know you are all in.

To the Healthiest year ever!

    I have 3 fitness apps that I really like. I’m on Android so I’m not sure if they are available for iPhones or not.

    All are free or have a free option.

    Workout Alerts
    This app givees you random exercises throught the day. You set the days, times, and frequency and you phone will buzz up a random exercise. They are bodyweight exercises that can be done in 1 to 2 minutes. I work on a computer most of the day and have my app set to working hours M-F. I get about 6 or 7 notifications and its a great way to break up the day.

    Fitify
    I’ve only had this for 3 weeks but I LOVE it! This app has a huge library of no equipment excercises, along with optional exercises with various tools. You can choose a routine from the app by selection the style you want (high intensity cardio, strength, stretching, etc….), the amount of time, and if you want a qarm up or not. It puts together a timed routine and walks you through it. Alternatively, you can create your own routine from its bazilllions of exercises!

    I LOVE it! I use it 3-4 times a week and use the stretching after my other workouts.

    Gymboss
    This is a simple preprogrammed timer app with the ability to also create your own timers. Great for any kind of interval training including running or tabata.
