I am a huge fan of staying not only beautiful with the latest fashion but as well healthy and fit. I am a HUGE fan of the gym which I am in love with Lifetime Fitness, were I spend at least 60 to 90 minutes on a good workout six days out of the week, which can be anything from cardio to yoga and weight lifting. I believe that anyone can do so much more with fashion when your happy with your weight and body type, but a HUGE trick that people forget is to DRINK WATER, because your body needs it to speed up the metabolism and also to stay young and beautiful.
MY WATER DRINKING RULE.
My goal was to drink at least 3 liters (about 100 ounces) of water a day. So the rule I came up with is that I must drink a liter of water before each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). I have a big 1-liter bottle that I refill to make it easy to keep track.
I start drinking water right when I wake up in the morning and don’t eat breakfast until I’ve finished the first bottle. Since I’m usually pretty hungry when I wake up, this really motivates me to drink that H20. If I want a cup of coffee or tea with my morning meal, that’s OK, as long as I’ve had the water first. I start drinking my second bottle right after breakfast. I make myself finish it before moving onto lunch. And then it’s the same story after lunch—no dinner before the third bottle of water is finished. If I drink all three liters in a day, I also reward myself with a sweet treat like a couple squares of chocolate (dark) after dinner.
I hope my little trick helps!
