I love my new water bottle!!!

Nothing motivates us more to visit the gym than those Olympians wearing gold medals around their necks. To be as successful as an Olympian you need to put in the work and stay hydrated! Contigo’s AUTOSEAL Chill water bottle is a necessity when it comes to staying hydrated at the gym. This 24-ounce insulated bottle can keep liquids cold for up to 28 hours! That’s enough time to hit the gym and run home to watch the highly anticipated Speed Skating or Alpine Skiing events.

I love my Contigo Autoseal Chill water bottle!!  Thank you Contigo for sending them my way.  My son thinks its pretty dang cool as well.  We both use it for the gym, work and all other activities.  I love it because the challenge I am doing calls for drinking 1 gallon of water a day until I got my water bottle.  It really helps me get my water in…  Another big plus is how cold my water stays!!  Such a awesome feature!!

Reduce Your Out-Of-Pocket Health Cost

 

Health care is a serious issue in the United States. All of us must face it. Whether we are 25 or 65, illness and injury is a possibility. Everyone in the United States must carry health insurance. That is the law. The problem is, not everyone in the United States can afford to carry insurance. This is why we hear about healthcare reform every time we turn on the evening news. The Best Medical Insurance Plan Is The Unused Plan

 

Most young people have health insurance at an affordable rate through their jobs. If they do not have jobs, they usually qualify for the government to help pay for their insurance so, it’s not a big issue.

 

Most young people are healthy and rarely use their insurance, so that makes it easy for them. But what about their parents and grandparents?

When an American citizen reaches the age of 65, they qualify for Medicare. Young people give this little thought. Most think the elderly get free healthcare. That is wrong. Medicare comes in 4 plans, Parts A, B, C, & D.

 

Medicare Part A pays for hospital bills when you are admitted. Part B pays for most (or a portion of) doctor visits. Part C (Healthcare Advantage) is where you can buy private insurance to take care of more of your medical expenses, using the dollars you are already paying for Parts A & B. Part D is prescription coverage. The only part of this that is free is part A and you actually have to be admitted to use it. Here is more info on part c, www.healthmarkets.com/resources/medicare/what-is-medicare-part-c

 

They Are Working On It

The government is working on this. So far there is no help in the near future. The state governments are working on it and that has added increases to the plans in some states of 57%. So while they are working on it, what are we to do?

 

What we can do to reduce out-of-pocket cost

The first thing you can do is to select your insurance options carefully. Consult an agent and be sure the plan fits your needs. If you go only by lowest up front cost, you will be in trouble if you get seriously ill.

 

But the most important thing you can do is get healthy. Be Pro-active.

Get Serious and Get Healthy

The best way to save money on your insurance is not to need your insurance, Go for your checkup, and listen to what the doctor says. Get out of your chair (if you can) and start walking, Stop eating foods that are not good for you. Put down the coffee cup and raise a bottle of water to your lips. If you need help, ask for it. Team up with your friends and find a way to get active. Try water aerobics. Get your blood sugar under control. Learn to do what it takes to live a healthy life and live it!

 

Obesity is a problem in the United States, and obese parents are raising obese children. Smoking is still a major concern for teenagers. More kids are drinking alcohol and trying drugs than ever before. It is time for parents to act like parents. It is time for all of us to take care of our bodies.

 

Eventually, there will be a health insurance solution, but there will never be a solution that is better than having, and maintaining good health. So while they are working on how to put us back together, why don’t we work on staying fit now. It will cost less and we will be a lot better off.

 

 

New Year, New You~ 2018

Fresh starts are great and with 2018 here  it’s time to think about what you want for the coming year.

Did you know!!  Jan, 2018, millions  will arise ready to go and be so excited about there goal of getting fit.   Sad but true by the end of January, a whopping 95% of those people will  have failed at those New Year’s resolutions for one reason or another.  We are not going to let you be one of those 95% not this year!!  THIS IS YOUR YEAR!!!!!!

if it’s 10, 30, 60 pounds or even more you want to take off how are you going to do it??
Here are some simple tips to get you started in the right direction.

1. Write it down!! Write it down!!  I can’t stress this enough!!

Map out how you are going to reach your goal. Set goals you can reach. I really do believe if your goals are not written down they are just dreams. When you write them down and put them somewhere you can see them it will set off events that will change your life.

2. Join a support group.

Weight does not just come off. You have to work hard and will need to be accountable. Join a support group where others are striving to reach weight loss goals. Take off pounds sensibly has worked for me. I also have many friends that have been to Overeaters Anonymous. You can find help in face to face meetings or on-line.

3. Make a vision board!

You need to have a clear vision of your goals!  You can feel free to let your imagination wonder as you create your future on this board.  This will help you create what you want from the inside and you can see it daily.

You will need a poster board. You can add sayings and pictures cut out from magazines. Healthy foods, Pictures of people near your ideal weight or even a picture of yourself at your ideal weight. Don’t hold back. You can put pictures that represent you and your dreams. Envision yourself and your new life and make this vision board all about your future.
Now place your board you will see it every day. If you look at it daily it will leave a imprint in your subconscious mind and you will make your board into reality.

4. It’s back to to the basics with eating. Eating healthy and often is the key.

During the holidays it is easy to get out of the habit of eating right. Get rid of the junk food.   6 small meals a day!!  Click here to see a sample of what I eat and how I lost the 100 pounds!

5. You will need to exercise.

Get a workout DVD. There are so many good ones your selection is endless.  If you live locally You will  love taking classes from Elevate Mind and Body studio You can pay as you go or sign up for 5,10, or monthly unlimited classes.  Great price and a wonderful studio also it’s so fun to be with others while getting fit and there is that show up accountability.

Most important thing to remember is consistency is everything. Working out as often as possible will bring great results.

6.  Most of all believe in yourself.

You can do anything you set your mind to if you believe in yourself.  Join me on Facebook to get motivated and stay motivated and to share what is working for you!  We are in this together!!  Click here “Get up and Get Moving” on Facebook
