Hootie! Hoot! Hoo! Howdy, ya’ll! We’re getting hacky-wacky!

Now, why are we sounding all adorably Ruby Gettinger on you? Because we are SO psyched to announce that we are working with her as a spokesperson for ViSalus for a number of fun posts over the next several months. We have long loved Ruby—heck, we gave her the title of Fit Bottomed Girl of the Year in 2010!—so being able to have her regularly share some of her favorite tips, recipes and insights just makes us want to say “hootie, hoot, hoo,” too! So read on as Ruby shares her top weight-loss tips in her own words!

Ruby’s Top 5 Weight-Loss Tips

1. Do a workout you love. When it comes to working out, find something you love to do so you will continue to do it! We want to become healthy and fit for life and make this a long-term lifestyle! So I do things I can’t wait to do that make me hacky—boxing, dancing, cheering, riding my bike. Find what you enjoy and go do it! Have fun!

2. Take small steps. This is part of the reason why I love, love, love ViSalus. It teaches you healthy eating and portion control. Taking the ViSalus 90-Day Challenge allows us to set our own personal fitness goals. It is very important to make a fitness goal and to develop a plan to help you reach your goal. Take it one day at a time. Make small steps, at least five days a week, toward your fitness goal. Do it every day and your small steps will become bigger steps before you know it!

3. Have a pick-me-up on hand for extra energy. I always have my GO shot before my workouts. It always gives me the extra energy I need! After working all day, being home with the kids or going to school, you may be feeling sluggish or too tired to workout… drink a GO and get a great tasting pick-me-up!

4. Get active with your entire family. Kids are my heart, and I want to help get childhood obesity under control! That is why our Project 10 Kids is so dear to my heart. ViSalus Project 10 Kids helps a child get fit. When I would babysit, I would always do relay races with the kids and have different kinds of fitness competitions that the kids could do with their siblings, friends or parents. They loved it! We would do it for two to three hours. Kids love to compete and have fun with you. I promise; just try it. It helps you all get healthier and closer!

5. Make workouts social. Start making your physical fitness a group fitness that you can enjoy with family and friends. Find classes to go to, go for walks, play with the kids, ride bikes with them! There is so much to do!
