Drinking water is usually avoided because it can be just plain boring. Jazz it up with a calorie/sugar free mixer like Crystal Light and put it on ice or chill it in the fridge and you'll see that it is so much easier to down it that way! I drink mine in a big ole mug with a straw! It makes it a little more exciting to get in that needed water everyday! :)
When I was visiting my sister in Dallas, she introduced me to Sweet Leaf's flavored liquid stevia drops, which can be added to water or anything else you want to jazz up a little. It comes in a wide variety of flavors like Vanilla Creme, Chocolate Raspberry, and even Root Beer! I've tried it in my water, iced tea and coffee -- delicious!
My sister found this product in her local Sprouts store for about $12/bottle; it's also available online through Amazon and other outlets.
Wall push-ups are a good way to get more upper-body exercise when you may not have time for floor push-ups, or maybe you're not so great at floor push-ups. They benefit chest, shoulders, arms/triceps, and core muscles. Step back just a little (safely) to "lean into the wall" more, and make the push-ups a bit more challenging. If you need to protect a wall from natural oil from your hands, try wearing non-slip or rubber gloves.
