Here are 5 simple things that you could do that will embrace change and provide great health benefits.
- No Soda/Pop
- 64 oz. of water daily
- Workout 30 minutes per day
- Up by 6:00 am daily
- Eliminate meat
The first thing I would like to do is drink less or no soda. I love Coke that is loaded with sugar. I am going to embrace change and eliminate soda from my diet. Everyday that I don’t drink a soda I am going to add a dollar to a jar and that will become my extra spending money for my vacation in January.
Drink 64 oz. of water a day
Increasing my water intake will help me eliminate the soda. I have found that I enjoy flavored water. Just by adding fresh cucumber, fresh fruits or mint will help me drink more water.
I found this new app “Charity Miles” that encourages me to walk more. You download the app, choose a charity and for every mile you walk/run your sponsor gives twenty-five cents to the charity. This is a great way to give to a charity and exercise. How cool is that? This was a great motivator for me to go the extra mile, because I know someone is being helped.
Up by 6:00 am
I can not believe the extra work I do by getting up early each morning. Whomever said the early bird gets the worm was right. It seems I have more energy and I can get a extra load of wash and dinner prepped before I start my day. Bonus day!
Here’s the biggie, no meat! I was a vegetarian for almost two years and loved it. I looked and felt my best. It’s been several years since I embraced the no meat lifestyle but I am excited about returning to healthy living. I am going to start slow, maybe I’ll try Meatless Monday’s , but ultimately I would like to be back on a full vegetarian diet by 2016.
This is my list, for now, to embrace change. What are some of the things that you would love to do? Maybe we should start a “embrace change” group on Facebook, what do you think? Are you in, let me know? If that is to much just follow us on our Facebook Page.
