This weeks Challenge - it may seem easy but do we actually do. This weeks challenge is to document the 1, 2, 3 below to see if you are doing the plan.

1) Exercise or Stretch for a min 5 to 10 minutes - right after you get up.
2) Drink water - Suggested is 8 cups
3) Sleep - 7 to 8 hours

1) Exercise in the AM - I have been reading about habits for High Performance. Several of them have indicated exercise and stretch like a cat does when they wake up. I will post more during the week.

2) Drinking water
Water is a quick and healthy way to feel full. Drink a glass when you have trouble controlling cravings or hunger, and the feelings will subside. Replace high-calorie drinks with water to cut calories and help with weight loss.

Drink water throughout the day, and before and during meals to help you eat less overall, especially before the meal and you will be less hungry. The process of drinking water and warming it to body temperature uses energy and burns calories. Dehydration slows down metabolism.

Itís common to confuse thirst with hunger. Before reaching for an unplanned snack, try drinking a glass of water first and wait a few minutes. Often water will hit the spot if you're only thirsty, but hunger will intensify the longer you wait.

3) Sleep
Isnít it funny how the simple act of sleeping isnít simple at times. Here is a link to a SparkPeople article to help you work towards a better nights sleep.
