Get Fit, No Excuses
Six ways to stay motivated

• When you leave the gym, leave your Palm Pilot or something else essential in your locker so you'll be forced to return and get it

• At home, keep fitness equipment in view. "Out of sight means out of mind," says Florez.

• Think small. Jog to the next tree, or pedal to the end of a song, says Los Angeles trainer Karen Voight

• Reward yourself for goals achieved with a movie, manicure, or massage.

• Commit to a charity run, says Keli Roberts, group fitness manager at Equinox Fitness in Pasadena, California. Then you'll be working out for more than just yourself.

• Hire a personal trainer who charges for missed sessions. "That," Roberts says, "really keeps people honest.

hey i started this community for people to help with their diets, their energy, exercise and wellness to be a happy person :)

Whether you are underweight, overweight, or healthy chances are you are not consuming enough water. It is recommended to get 8-10 servings of water a day. Fruit juice counts as a serving of FRUIT not water. Fruit punch, lemonade, etc count as servings of water. Soups also count as servings of water. It really isn't that hard to get enough water as long as you pay attention. Chances are you will only need another 2 or 3 glasses a day. That sounds like a lot but if you put it in a bottle and sip on it all day long then it will be easy to get.

Water is important for a number of reasons. Do some research but here is some basic information for you. First, water helps your liver function. Without water your liver will not function at full capacity. Your liver is responsible for filtering out the crap and also helps in fat processing. If you are overweight, limiting your water intake can make you not loose weight even if you decrease your calories. Limiting your water will also make you tired and will help your skin look like crap. On the other hand drinking lots of water will help your body function to it's fullest capacity (and that is what this group is all about!) and it will also help control your apetite if you are prone to snacking on empty calorie foods (that is, instead of craving potatoe chips to fill the void in your tummy your body will not crave anything because it will be full of water and good foods).
