healthy & fitness lap of the week – water & move

I have decided to give you all both a healthy and fitness tip of the week here on my blog each Monday morning, so I hope you enjoy them and find them useful!

Healthy Lap of the Week – Drink more WATER!!


I know that this is a simple and somewhat boring healthy tip of the week, but it really is an important one!  Our bodies are made up of mostly water, therefore, we need it to survive.  But, it is amazing to me how many people do not drink water!  Water not only hydrates you, but it flushes any bad toxins out of your body.  I drink water all throughout the day, but I especially try to drink water with my meals.  This way, I know that I am at least drinking it a few times a day, and it fills you up a little more so that there is less chance of overeating!

Fitness Lap of the Week – Get on the Move!


I am not saying that you need to workout at the gym every single day, but you should try to move!  Whether it is cleaning your house, walking (instead of driving) to the store, walking up that flight of stairs at the office instead of taking the elevator/escalator, walking your dog, etc.  Anything that you can do to get your body moving and your heart rate up a little bit each day will not only help you burn calories, but it will help you combat your stress as well!  I know that I definitely feel better when I have moved a little bit each day!

  1. Jen, I love your tips! I look forward to reading them. Thanks for the reminder about the water today 🙂 I try not to drink too many other drinks besides water during the day, but what ends up happening is I don’t drink anything and can get dehydrated. Moving def makes you feel better. Whenever I feel like my kids are getting sooo heavy I like to think of it as making me stronger. Happy Monday!
