I am working with the Campbell Soup Company for the purpose of this post.
I’ve been working to make heart healthy changes in my everyday life. A little over a year ago, I decided to make some lifestyle changes and get healthy. In the past 14 months, I’ve dropped 20 pounds and stayed steady. I’ve been dedicated to making lifetyle changes that I can sustain. This is not a diet or fad. I’ve just made some personal changes to improve my health. I’m not where I want to be quite yet, but I’m on the right track.
3 Heart Healthy Changes
Increase Water Intake:
I fill a glass of water every morning and keep it refilled all day. By adding a slice of lemon, the water always tastes the same. I have gotten to where I really like the taste of lemon water. I rarely drink any thing else.
Add More Steps:
For Christmas this year, I purchased a treadmill desk. This allows me to work while I walk and get my steps in even if it’s raining or cold. I sometimes use a pedometer and aim for at least 8,000 steps.
Eat Junk Food in Moderation:
I love chocolate. The only thing that has worked for me these last 14 months is the fact that when I crave sweets and junk food, I eat it. I don’t eat it regularly, but I don’t deprive myself of any food. I just try to eat this food in moderation.
