Health & Fitness Friday – Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference!

Every Little Bit Helps!

alg-fountain-soda-jpgI’m going to start with my “health” tip of the day, because I find I use it ALL of the time, and I’m sure it must be somewhat helpful!  So here it is, one of my most coveted secrets!  Whenever I am faced with the old fountain drink machine, I do this: fill my cup almost all the way with diet coke, and then top it up with a little bit of root beer.  The entire thing literally tastes like root beer, but without all the calories!  You can do it with Dr Pepper or cherry coke or anything you want, really.  I know some people don’t condone drinking diet soda, but you know what, at the end of the day, if you have diet soda once in a while, it’s not going to kill you (I mean, I can’t say that officially, but I don’t really care).  I do this all of the time, and it spices up your diet-pop-drinking lifestyle.


Picture 2Now for my fitness tip!  It’s not really a tip, but it’s one of my favourite ways to work out and has helped me a lot on my weight loss journey!  And what is this work-out?  Ballet!  I love to dance, and I find it more enjoyable than running or other types of cardio, so this is one of my favourite go-to work outs.  It’s not the easiest to find adult ballet classes, I was actually in a Musical Theatre program, so I was lucky to have at least 3 90-minute dance classes a week, but now that I’m graduated, an awesome tool to use is Youtube!  You can find all kinds of workouts on there.  Here’s one that I’ve used and have really enjoyed, it’s more of a work-out than a traditional ballet class, the Ultimate 20 Minute Barre Exercise Workout.

Hope you enjoy my tips/find them useful!  Just remember to take your personal health/fitness one day at a time, try to do one thing a day like saying no to that cookie you don’t REALLY care if you have, do some squats before bed, anything is better than nothing!

Thanks for reading!
