• Keep Moving
The Department of Health and Human Services suggests moderate aerobic activity for all healthy adults, like brisk walking, for 2.5 hours, or 150 minutes, each week. Cardio should be done 75 minutes each week, and strength-training activities at least twice a week. You can spread your exercise into 3 ten minute bursts if that is what works best for you and reap the same benefits.
• Limit alcohol
Alcohol accumulates as weight in the middle of your body as it is digested as sugar which turns into fat. For most women 1-2 servings of alcohol is considered moderate. Limit drinking alcohol to once a week, and enjoy water and teas instead.
