Like most people, you probably set out for a big 2010 New Year's Resolution! Today is January 20th, so if you have stuck with it, you have almost created your habit. If you have not stuck with it, no worries, we are here to help! 

Personal Trainer Melanie Holloway has provided the "Top 10 Ways to Get Healthy in 2010 Handout" by Diane Lofshult for you.

Diane says there is "no magic bullet to get in shape," and that you just need, "simple, easy ways to improve your health in 2010."

Here is her list:
  1. Switch from regular soda to diet, and pass on sugar-laden energy drinks.
  2. Never skip breakfast.
  3. Drink alcohol only on weekends, if at all.
  4. Use olive oil instead of butter on bread when cooking.
  5. Chew your food slowly, and always sit down when you eat.
  6. Substitute sweet potatoes or yams for white potatoes.
  7. Always ask for salad dressing on the side.
  8. Choose dairy products that are fat free or 1%.
  9. Ask restaurant servers to bring you half your meal and to put the other half in a doggie bag to take home.
  10. Replace your regular dishes with smaller salad plates.
