  1. i’ve been using a heart rate monitor to make sure i’m hitting my target HR in all my workouts ANNNND i’ve been trying to eat clean :)

  2. I’ve been keeping hydrated, getting to the gym at least 6 days a week, and wearing clothes that are appropriate for the weather!

  3. I liked Fitness Magazine on Facebook

  4. two ways i have been keeping a healthy lifestyle is i take daily morning walks. not only is it a form of exercise, but it also helps clear my mind in the morning. i am in arizona so our mornings have a slight chill that is so relaxing. it helps me mentally and physically.

    i also have tried new fresh seasonal fruits and veggies and have been trying to always get them from our local farmers market. i just had my first acorn squash and am in love! i love supporting local farmers and the produce is so much more fresh!

  5. i already follow you on twitter <3

  6. i now follow fitness magazine on twitter.

  7. i already like you on facebook <3

  8. i already follow you on pinterest

  9. I’ve been using mapmyrun.com to keep track of all the walking I do during the course of the day. I’m shooting for 4 miles daily, which I usually hit. I also bring my water bottle with me everywhere to be sure I stay hydrated

  10. I like you on fb

  11. I am making a point to downgrade my current exercise routine as I finally discovered that it’s an unhealthy obsession.
    I’m also eating in season. Apples, pumpkin, citrus….whatever I can get my hands on that is locally grown.

  12. First, during the cooler months I much prefer warm drinks, so I bought a cute travel mug. I’ll fill it up with tea in the morning (leaving the tea bag in), and then in between classes, I’ll run into one of our on campus coffee shops and have them fill it up with hot water again, to make sure that I’m getting enough liquids as the day goes on (it also helps safe money and keep me from buying a bajillion cups of coffee).
    Secondly, as a super busy student who rarely has the time or energy to make dinner at night, I’ve started preparing large tupperware containers of cut veggies and grains on Sundays (when I have a bit more time). For example, this week, I have a big container of pre-cut broccoli and another container of brown rice, so on weekdays all I have to do is throw a couple of handfuls into a frying pan, add in some fake sausage, and I have dinner in less than 20 minutes. I never realized what a huge difference having these things done makes!
    Also, an unnecessary third note, I always try to carry some kind of snack around (granola bars or trail mix, usually) in my purse, so that on days when I’m too busy to get real lunch (eep, I know that’s bad), I don’t have to resort just to coffee and whatever I can find on campus to go.

  13. I like Fitness on fb

  14. I’ve been keeping my water bottle filled at work and I’ve been having a green smoothie every day for breakfast! Delish!

  15. This fall, I’ve been keeping my healthy lifestyle by committing to having a green smoothie everyday for breakfast (made with organic and local produce) and making sure I eat plenty of dark green leafy greens.

    Another way I’m keeping a healthy lifestyle is by mixing up my workout routines. I’ve started regular spin classes and private Pilates lessons and I feel amazing!

  16. I tweeted the message and I already follow you and Fitness on Twitter!

  17. This is a good one, but the WF’s was pretty damn close!! I am training for and running a half marathon (and plan to keep up the miles) and continuing to maintain my weight workouts. Not easy, but important.

  18. ive been keeping it busy in the gym- about 6 days a week and trying to switch up my workouts! i have also been trying to drink more water.

  19. I follow both on twitter and have tweeted.

  20. While I always run, and will keep running all fall, I am making a conscious effort to go wheat free, as while I am already a vegan, I have found out that wheat makes me feel so sluggish and gives me tummy aches! Additionally, I am trying to drink more tea – green, black, white, herbal, whatever! It helps me unwind and has lots of good-for-you antioxidants! Good luck everyone!

  21. How exciting! Something I can enter from Australia :)
    My healthy lifestyle tips are:
    1. Watch your portions- instead of counting calories I’ve been watching my portion sizes of healthy food.
    2. Variety in exercise is key- switching between the things you love keeps you active and excited for your workouts.

  22. I liked LVY on Facebook!

  23. I also liked Fitness on Facebook. :)

  24. I’ve been adding flax seed meal to my oatmeal & sauces + have been switching up my workouts to not exhaust certain muscle groups

  25. This fall I have been:

    1. Meal planning so I always have a healthy dinner on the table every night.

    2. Getting my workout in before work so it’s out of the way.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  26. How exciting! Thanks for hosting this great giveaway! We’ve been a part of our local organic farm’s CSA and I love that we are eating seasonally, locally, organically, and I’ve been challenged to try new things on the fam. in order to not waste anything. We also have been challenging ourselves to do at least 15 mins./day of heart-rate increasing exer. as a family. I am currently 4 mos preggo so it’s typically me that’s lagging behind! :-)

  27. Consistency with icing and stretching, and lots of green drinks!

  28. This fall I’ve been:
    -making sure to eat at least 2 servings of fruits or veggies at each meal
    -drinking plenty of water

  29. 1.) I plan and write out my workout plan and note if I enjoyed the workout.

    2.) Get a list of seasonal produce. Then I search for recipes that use them.


  30. To stay healthy, I’ve been taking vitamins (multi and fish oil) and drinking lots of water. To stay happy, I’ve been eating lots of candy corn!

  31. I’ve been taking daily walks and taking vitamins.

  32. I have been taking a walk every morning while practicing deep breathing. Also I’ve been practicing my vegan baking skills; substituting coconut oil for butter and creating new juices for the fall.

  33. Two things I’ve been doing to keep life healthy and good this fall:

    1. Starting each day with a minute of mindful breathing.

    2. Trying to make as many meals at home as possible, using the last of my amazing local produce! :)

  34. I’ve been working out regularly and making it a point to drink more water throughout the day.

  35. I like you on FB with my username Mary Happymommy.

  39. This fall I have been taking walks after dinner every night. The weather is perfect and the colors are breathtaking!

    Secondly, I am taking advantage of all the fresh produce my town has left before it is gone for the season and the only thing we can get local are potatoes!

  40. Tip 1: Focus on being with nature. Most outdoor activities involve exercise!
    Tip 2: Focus on food from nature! Real, whole foods of the season. Forget the processed food!

  41. I’ve scaled back a bit. I have been running 2 times a week and trying to go to yoga 2 times as well. I’ve also been enjoying all the fun fall veggies. I love when the seasons change because it gives you a change to switch up your routine and your food. Keeps things from being boring!

  42. I’ve hired a personal trainer twice a week to help keep me motivated and I joined a local food co-op to eat seasonal/local/organic foods!

  43. Two things I’ve been doing to stay healthy this fall are:
    1. Biking my kids to school in the morning- perfect way to start the morning!
    2. Enjoy the cooler weather by running outside instead of inside which has also motivated me to increase my mileage!
