Sunday, January 24th What is your “Healthy Weight”?
Many people misconstrue what it means to be at a healthy weight. However, your health cannot be reduced down to a number or an outfit that you feel you need to fit into. Your healthy weight is your natural weight that is primarily determined by genetics. To learn more, watch this video by Green Mountain at Fox Run, the official host of Healthy Weight Week.
Monday, January 25th Eating Well
No, we are not talking about keeping track of every calorie you put into your body. Keep hydrated and ensure that you eat enough fruits and vegetables (approximately 2.5 cups for adults) every day to ensure that your body is getting enough nutrients. To fill in the last few gaps in your diet, consider taking supplements that are available on our online apothecary such as NuMedica’s Power Greens that is an antioxidant power loaded with 25+ servings of vegetables and fruits. And who said healthy food can’t be delicious? Check out some delectable healthy recipes on GLIM’s blog!
Tuesday, January 26th Get your Beauty Sleep
30% of adults are sleeping fewer than six hours most nights, according to a study of US adults. However, many people don’t realize that sleep is just as important as diet and exercise in your weight loss journey! Getting 7-9 hours of sleep at night boosts your metabolism, helps break down excess fat in the body, and balances hormones that control your appetite.
Wednesday, January 27th Making Exercise Fun
Whether it’s running a marathon, going to the gym, doing yoga, going on a long walk, or taking 10 minutes out of your day to move around and dance to your favorite songs - find your own rhythm and get into an exercise routine that you will want to continue.

Friday, January 29th Take a Breather
When we feel an overwhelming amount of stress, that chocolate cake starts looking really tempting. Hormones associated with stress can cloud our judgment and affect our appetite leading us to stress-eat unhealthy foods or alternatively skip meals entirely. When faced with stress, your body enters “fight or flight mode” where it allocates resources away for processes like digestion, in order to combat stress. This results in gastrointestinal distress marked by stomach pain and heartburn. So, the next time you feel overcome by stress, try deep-breathing or yoga to get a hold of your mental state to avoid making the wrong decisions when it comes to food.
Saturday, January 30th Detoxify your Body
According to the Global Healing Center, we are exposed to an average of 2,100,000 toxins every day. With an increasing number of pollutants and sources of toxins, our liver gets overworked and toxins begin to accumulate in our fat and muscle which can result in weight gain. But here at GLIM, we’ve got you covered! Try out our 14-day detox program with products from NuMedica, a company dedicated to providing certified, high-quality products that you can trust. This detox will restore necessary vitamins to your body, cleanse your body of those nasty toxins, and help you reduce your intake of calorie-dense foods which is sure to help you reach your healthy weight goals!
