Tweak, track, count, and calculate your way to health.

Day 24: Count your Paces

Taking 10,000 steps a day is associated with being slim, better blood pressure, and increased insulin sensitivity. The average American woman only walks about 4,900 steps a day. Get a pedometer and start counting!

Day 25: Calculate your BMI

Divide your weight by your height in inches squared. Then multiply that figure by 703. It's a rough assessment of how much body fat you're carrying. A BMI between 25 and 29.9 indicates you are overweight; 30+ means you're obese.

Day 26: Tweak Your Daily Routine

Try these little changes.
-Drink a cup of coffee or tea. Caffeine can inhibit the growth of cancer cells and may lower your risk for cancer, plus a whole lot of other benefits.
-Have a snack after your workout instead of waiting until your next meal. You enter a 45-minute metabolic phase right after your workout and protein and carbs can repair muscle tissue.

Day 27: Stretch

It improves flexibility and strength. 7-10 minutes every morning is suggested by experts.

Day 28: Floss

Did you know bacteria in your mouth can make it into your bloodstream?

Day 29: Find a Buddy

Hire a trainer. Grab a friend. Ask a family member to join you on your fitness journey. If someone is waiting for you at the gym, encouraging you, and holding you accountable the process will be a lot more fun and you'll be less likely to cheat.
