·        Bring a Water Bottle to Work: Bring a 32 oz. water bottle to work. Fill it when you get there and try to drink the entire bottle before lunch. Refill at lunch and challenge yourself to drink it all by the end of the work day.

Want to start running, but are intimidated by the process? Here are some tips to get you going!

Baby Steps:  Start with just walking. Begin with a 30-40 minute walk at a fast pace three times a week for one week. Then up it to four times a week at 35-45 minutes.

Walk/Run: Walk for ten minutes, jog for one minute. Walk for 2 minutes, jog for 1 minute. Do this activity for 10-15 minutes, then do a 10 minute walk to cool down. Do this for two weeks, or longer until the jogging becomes easy.
