Water

I make sure I drink at least 8 glasses of water every single day, and try to be careful and mindful of what I am putting in my mouth. If I am hungry or need a snack (I am diabetic) I reached for something like fruit or crackers.

Drinking enough Water

I found a really cool water bottle that I like to carry with me. I love it, so I don't forget it. It fits easily in the drinking fountain, so is easy to refill. By starting to carry this, I've increase my water consumption significantly, and I'm hardly ever thirsty anymore.

Sunblock

While the seasons are starting to change it is important to remember your sunblock! Even if you are going outside to play with the kids or exercise during the middle of the day, outside! Use a moisturizer with SPF, use a daily lotion with SPF -- anything to keep you & your skin healthy!

Water, water everywhere...

I keep a 24-oz water bottle by my bed so I have it there if I wake up thirsty during the night. When I wake up in the morning, I drink whatever's left -- that way I'm already at three 8-oz glasses for the day. I used to be horrible at getting my 64 ounces in, but this helps!
