Healthy Tip #1 WATER

I have been working very hard on my diet and exercise recently and have been baby stepping it. (I am a Fly Lady fan and love the baby step approach to life changes.)
I want to post some of the baby steps I have been making to help me toward the goal of a more healthy body.
Healthy tip #1 is water.
Water
I know that sounds pretty basic but we don't drink enough water.
Here is the water plan.

  • Drink a glass of water when you get up, before you eat or do anything. This helps cleanse your body.
  • Drink a glass of water about 30 minutes before breakfast.
  • Drink a glass of water before your morning snack (if you have one)
  • Drink a glass of water about 30 before lunch.
  • Drink a glass of water before an afternoon snack.
  • Drink a glass of water about 30 minutes before dinner.
  • Drink a glass of water before and evening snack (if you have one)
  • Drink a glass of water before going to bed.
That is 8 glasses of water. That is a great start. You should get at least 2 liters of water a day.
Always make sure you drink water before working out, and again afterward.

Don't drink at meal times. If you have to then drink water instead of pop, juice or other drinks.
By drinking before you eat, you tend to eat less. It also helps to cleanse your system.

Very good tips. I quit smoking in Jan. and have since taken up a healthy lifestyle. Exercise, eating right and lots of water. Thank you for posting on my quilting blog. Here is our new blog. I can't keep up with too many so have closed the quilting one. I will be putting a craft section on this blog soon.
