Make Really BIG Strides by Taking Small Steps

Sometimes it’s just really minor investments towards a healthier lifestyle that pay off in the future.  Try these few small changes ……..

  1. This one may shock you, try walking over to co-workers office or cubicle, instead of sending email or instant messaging. That could be more than 1 pound that you lose a year!
  2. If you are going to eat chocolate bypass the milk kind; eat dark chocolate, (oh how I love thee) Dark chocolate boosts your immune system. Not one, but two flavonoids are found in that dark goodness. Catechins and Epicatechins….immune boosters!
  3. Try to eat two banana’s a day, this can lower your risk of stroke by 20%, Low potassium levels has been linked to strokes.
  4. Have a snack before dinner, sounds crazy but you can lose almost 4 pounds a year, having a fatty snack (not french fries or chips…eh em) avocado, nuts, peanut butter spread on half an apple about 8 to 10 minutes before a meal will make you feel full and you will eat less!
  5. Between exercises do 20 to 30 ab moves, this ensures that you actually don’t ignore your abs, no skipping here. If you had no time to get a work out in and need to work your abs, my favorite way to get my ab workout in, between commercial breaks while watching my favorite show!
