Water is important for healthy organ function, lubricated joints and even strong bones. If you can’t give up the caffeinated drinks altogether, which, by the way, can lead to increased dehydration, follow each cup of coffee or can of soda with a bottle of water.
✓SIGN UP FOR AN EVENT: Let’s face it, exercising just for the sake of exercising or losing weight can get boring. Spice things up by signing up for an event like a run/walk race or a cycling ride where you can be part of a team. Doing so gives your workouts a new purpose, and it’s fun to be around others who are exercising just like you — not to mention that most events benefit nonprofit organizations, which doubles your feel-good high.
