It's Not Too Late: 10 Inexpensive Ways to Get and Stay In Shape

O.K., you didn't get an early start on getting shape, but it's
definitely not too late! Today marks the very first day of
summer and there are something that you can do to get in
shape and become the healthy you, you've always wanted
to be.

It is actually God's will that we exemplify health in each and
every area of our lives (spirit, soul, and body). 3 John 1:2 NLT
says, "Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you
as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit." Remember,
your body is the vehicle that drives your purpose in live. Without a
healthy body, fulfilling God's ultimate purpose for our lives will
be a challenge if not an impossibility.

Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. It's time to feel
your best, look your best, and be your best. Here are 10 inexpensive
ways to get and stay in shape.
  1. Instead of driving, ride a bicycle whenever possible.
  2. Limit eating out, and purposely prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner
  3. Take a morning or evening walk with a person(s) that have the same goals
  4. Drink more water
  5. Eat less later in the day
  6. Instead of taking the elevator take the stairs
  7. Rent an exercise video from the library and workout at home
  8. Locate introductory discount coupons or invitation periods at the gym
  9. Journal your daily exercise and eating to stay on track
  10. Break up your meals into 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day
What are your goals for weight loss? Have you already
