Health Alert! Health Alert! Health Alert!

Take a few minutes to read this information. It may save your life.
Taking care of your body is very important.  By paying attention and integrating these two strategies into your lifestyle, you can make a significant impact on your health.


Move It! Move It! Move It! A regular exercise schedule that includes cardio and strength training is a very important part of a healthy lifestyle. Try to exercise at the same time each day, make this a routine. Do 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weight training five days a week. Give yourself two days of rest to allow for muscle repair and repeat the seven day cycle.  When is the best time to exercise?  Ideally you should integrate your exercise into your schedule where you tend to have the greatest energy in the day, more specifically when you will actually do it. Occasionally include some leisure activity like yoga, pilates, stretching, tai chi to keep things interesting.


Since your body is 90% water, life and health depend highly on water.  Water plays a critical role in how well our body functions.  Water is involved in temperature regulation, digestion, transportation in the body, waste removal and more.
So how much water do you need to drink each day? The experts say to drink one half your body weight in ounces. If you weigh 160 pounds, you need to consume 80 ounces of water or ten, eight ounce glasses of water per day.  The secret is to consistently drink water throughout the day.  Caffeine lovers should drink an extra glass of water after ever drink of tea or coffee. Remember, water is a natural appetite suppressant, you have nothing to lose but some weight.
