The Busy Woman's Guide to a Better Body

You’re so busy that lunch often means a trip to the vending machine, and exercise amounts to the number of trips you make to the ladies’ room in a single day.
When work and family demand so much of your waking hours, it’s easy to adopt lifestyle habits that come back to bite you in the butt, hips and thighs. “For starters, rethinking where, when and how you exercise is key,” says Cleveland Clinic wellness expert Amy Jamieson-Petonic, MEd, RD, CSSD, LD. “You also need to take a look at your diet. Chances are you’re shortchanging yourself when it comes to feeding your body optimum fuel and overdoing it on empty calories that are keeping you from your goal of looking fitter.” Read on for tips on how to transform your body into one that looks, feels and functions at its best.
