In order to make sure that I get all of the water I am supposed to drink in a day, I keep a 2-cup insulated coffee mug on the kitchen counter whenever I am home. Since I am constantly in and out of the kitchen, I am always taking a drink of water. The insulated cup keeps it cold for a few hours at ta time. As soon as I drain it, I enter my 2 cups of water in SparkPeople, and I refill the mug.

I realized that I had not made exercise a priority in my life. So I made taking care of myself, including exercise, my first priority. Then, I made it first thing in the morning...I exercise before I go to work.
Start a daily "to do" list and make sure you are in the top three spots. The sooner you start out this way, the easier it will become to start putting yourself first, without feeling guilty. Make exercise a top priority, as well as preparing your healthy snacks or meals for the day. Women especially tend to place everybody and everything else before themselves leaving no time in the day left for exercise or relaxation. Start making yourself, mind, body, and spirit a top priority!
