We’re already in the 4th week of January now and if you made any New Year’s Resolutions, I bet you are starting to wear down from your new routine. It’s not uncommon to make New Year’s Resolutions only to realize by the end of the month that you can’t really keep up your new routine. Don’t give up though! We have some tips on staying fit and getting healthy in 2017 without wearing yourself out.
Start Your Day With Lemon Water
A great way to start your day and improve your health is by squeezing a fresh lemon into a tall glass of room temperature water. In the winter, I like to take this healthy habit up a notch by squeezing my lemon into a mug of hot water with a touch of honey and cayenne pepper! Lemons can help aid in digestion for the rest of the day, can help you produce a healthy morning bowel movement, and they have lots of Vitamin C which helps boost your immunity. Cayenne pepper is a great addition to your lemon water (if you can handle it!) because it can help aid digestion, can help break up and move congestion during a cold, helps with circulation, can aid in weight loss and so much more. Honey has it’s own roster of amazing benefits too including, soothing a sore throat, helps regulate blood sugar, plus it’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. These 4 amazing ingredients work together to do amazing things in your body so it’s an excellent way to start your day!
Boost Your Energy With Beets
Set down that third cup of coffee and get ready to see what 2 organic beets plus tumeric can do for you! If you are a busy mom like me, turning to a second and third cup of coffee is not uncommon. I know if I have too much coffee, I can get jittery and hyper. A great alternative is Red Ace Organics Beets with Tumeric!
Why beets? Actually the question should be, why NOT beets?! Those little vegetables are amazing! Not only can they help increase your oxygen intake, boost your stamina and endurance to make your workout more effective, support healthy blood pressure levels, fight inflammation, all while giving you an increase in clean energy all day long and help increase your brain activity without the crash that coffee gives you.

Invest In New Sneakers
Nothing compares to a new pair of sneakers. Treat yourself to a brand new pair and it’s bound to motivate you to go out for that daily jog or head into to the gym. A comfy, lightweight pair of Nike 4.0 Flyknit Sneakers will give you the extra pep in your step that you need to keep up with your new fitness routine for 2017.

Get A Good Night’s Sleep
It is absolutely critical to sleep at least 7-8 hours a day for most adults and women need more sleep than men. If you are getting less than 6 hours of sleep at night, you need to do something about it! Don’t drink coffee after 6pm, don’t use electronic devices (like your iPhone) after getting into bed, and make sure you are sleeping on a good mattress like LAYLA!
We’ve been sleeping on a LAYLA mattress for about 5 or 6 months now and we LOVE IT! We had no idea what we were missing. We thought our 9 year old memory foam mattress was fine until we laid down our Layla Mattress and got an amazing night’s sleep.
