“Getting in shape is no different for super stars or super moms; it is all about making your mind up to eat right, snack smart and get active—regardless if you are preparing for a movie premiere, your 20-year class reunion or a milestone birthday,” says Waters.

“Feeling your best for life’s special occasions is a matter of consistently making wise choices.”

Following are some tips from Waters on how to begin making wise choices now:

Make the commitment. Every health and fitness journey starts with making daily changes—not just when you can fit them in your schedule or when you have time. The first step toward achieving your health and fitness goals is simply making the decision to set them.

Eat breakfast every day. Beginning your day with a nutritious meal jump starts your metabolism and sets you up for eating right the whole day.

Snack smart. No workout in the world can compensate for consistently unhealthy eating choices. Food and fitness go hand-in-hand.

Consistency is key. A short workout is better than no workout at all. So even if you only have ten minutes to spare, move your coffee table to the side and make some space to do an at-home workout. And when our time is limited, avoid working out only your problem areas, like your stomach. Instead of doing crunches, which burns very little calories, a more important objective is to work out as many muscle groups as you can in the time you have available.

A State Marketing Order in 1998 created the California Raisin Marketing Board and it is 100 percent grower-funded. Its mission is to support and promote the increased use of California-grown raisins and sponsor crop production, nutrition and market research.
