10 Healthy Habits to Nail this Week- Fit Sugar
Whether you aim to take on just a few, or you can knock ‘em all dead at once, here are 10 healthy habits to work towards this week. (And all year!)
Exercise for 150 minutes this week. Whether you work out for 50 minutes three times a week or exercise every weekday for 30 minutes, 150 minutes is the bare minimum experts recommend to maintain heart and body health. For how much you should be exercising to lose weight, read here.
Cook dinner every weeknight. Here’s a stay-on-track meal plan from nutritionist Cynthia Sass to help you plan your week.
Make a water goal to hit every day, and then meet it. Calculate how much water you should be drinking here.
Drink green tea. You’ll be boosting your metabolism and fighting disease with each mug.
Eat a healthy breakfast every day. Forgo the pastry display for one of these healthy breakfast recipe ideas.
Stretch. To improve flexibility and relieve aches, take three mornings this week to do a quick, gentle stretching sequence before you move on with your day.
Eat a salad for lunch every day. It’ll help with your weight-loss goals but will also help you get the nutrients you need to stay healthy. Here are 10 Winter salads to try.
Take a break. Take time to de-stress, and have fun a few days this week with these stress-relieving tips.
Say no to empty drink calories. At happy hour, stick to one (or no) low-calorie alcoholic drink, and order club soda or water for the rest of the time.
Get more sleep. Getting better sleep gives you more energy, boosts your immune system, and helps you lose weight. Aim for at least seven hours every night this week. Check out our 20 simple ways to get better sleep for help.





they look fun!

If i’d ever dedicate a page to a top model, it would be to her @frenchrosebud


15 steps to get the body you want and start enjoying working out!
1. Start the very first day of the week with the right attitude:Monday is GOOD! Do not think that Monday is boring and stupid. Monday is a great day, because the week is by no means set and you can shape it any way you want. You have every opportunity in the world to get the best week of your life. My tip is to start  training on Monday, so you get a head-start with a clear conscience and lots of energy. 
2. Make a list:
- Why do you want to start exercising? Whats bothering you? Make a list.- do not think that exercise is only tiring and a chore, exercise should be fun! - think that this is something you do because your body needs to move, it’s so good for you! - think of the feeling afterwards, on all free profit you are left with after the session. - work out in the morning if you can, right after work or right after school.If you wait and wait all day, you will probably just give up on working out because your friends or family will call you or you will have other things to do. 
3. Find a form of exercise that suits youTry out different exercises so you’ll eventually notice what you are most comfortable with. I was a fan of group lessons when I started training, and could never in the world imagine that I would ever lift free weights or run on a treadmill. But after some time, I was so fascinated by those who could run and run without stopping. Today the treadmill is my best friend and I love to run.  I’m not tired and I feel amazing. And lately I’ve started with both spinning and group lessons again. Variety is amazing!
4. Have good and varied workout music, or see something on the iPadTraining music I listen to, is often not the music I listen home. It’s great to have a workout playlist with some great music that you love and enjoy. Music alone can actually be a good motivation. If  you are lucky enough to be the owner of an ipad, this can also give you great satisfaction in long-distance running. If your gym owns a television or you bring your stuff to the gym you can watch your favorite television shows while being on the treadmill. Pop corn and coke has some really good shows and it’s free.
5. Have a real role modelIf there is someone you admire body wise, he/she can be a great role model for you, whether that is a super model or the man on the street. If you gained weight, your old pair of jeans is a great motivation. I prefer to get motivated by people who eat healthy and work hard not the ones who are naturally skinny and fit.
6. Set goalsIt can be nice to have something to work towards, something to look forward to. Previously, my goal has been to look good for the wedding and the honeymoon. Now that the wedding is over, my goal is to maintain the body I already have. I train mostly because I love it and because I love being healthy. 
7. Create a training contract with yourselfEverything is so much easier when you have a contract with someone, so why not make a contract with yourself? Write down what you will achieve by a certain date, number of days a week to train, sign, and hang on the fridge.
8. Give yourself rewardsTreat yourself with a good dinner or a little chocolate after you had a good weekend. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet and you can look good and enjoy life but in moderation.If you are not a fan of candy or large meals, you can always treat yourself with others things when you achieve your goals. How about a new pair of shoes or new bag or new pair of jeans?
9. Get a personal trainer or a workout buddyIf you are struggling to get started, there is nothing wrong with hiring a personal trainer (if you can afford it of course). It’s fun and you can learn something new. If you can’t afford it can be motivating to go with your friend. You will both spend time together and have so much fun.
10. Log your sessionsKeep track of how often you train and how you train, I’m a fan of exercise diary GetInspired, and try to keep track of my week there. To log my running I use a chip in the shoe from Nike and Nike app for iphone.

11. New workout clothesA pretty common tip is of course new sportswear.  Buy yourself a pair of nice leggings and a bright pink singlet  thats waiting just for you to be used.
12. Exercise is good for your body! It’s not something I’m saying, just look here: 
♥ Training: - leads to better balance and coordination - improve immune function - reduces the risk of osteoporosis - reduces the risk of stress - and less likelihood of depression and anxiety
♥ An active lifestyle reduces the risk of: - heart - disease by 45 percent - stroke by 60 percent - high blood pressure by 30 percent - breast cancer by 30 percent - type 2 diabetes by 50 percent - colon cancer by 41 percent
13. Search for motivation onlineThere are many inspiring photos online, for example weheartit or tumblr, it often gets me off the couch!
14. Read blogs that motivates you
They are so many people who decided to change their lifestyle and get healthy. Many of them post some amazing pictures and they achieved so much. 
15. No excusesDo not say that you don’t have time, you must take your time. It’s the same if it is only 30 minutes now and then, and it’s the same whether you run a mil or go 3 miles in the woods. Something is always better than nothing. If you don’t have a gym membership  you can practice in front of the television at home, you can use wood, stairs here and there, buy a hoop, a skipping rope, running with the stroller. There are so many possibilities, so if you say that you are not  able to afford working out thats just an excuse!
Thanks to Caroline!
