Give yourself a V-Day gift this year. Choose one way you are going to be healthier. It’s the best way to love yourself, and, ultimately, the best way to love someone else. I’m on a mission this year to get in the best shape of my life. I’m not sure how well it’s going, but here are some tips for all of us:

  • Trade sugary beverages for water or unsweetened herbal tea
  • Limit processed foods
  • Try to get at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day
  • Start a calorie journal
  • Sign up for a race or walk to motivate you to get in better shape
  • Join a fitness class with friends
  • Give up dessert for the rest of the month
