Smith's exercise, eating routines

Smith is a workout nut, but you don't have to maintain his regimen to get the benefits of regular physical activity. "I exercise six or seven days a week - usually getting up at 5:30 in the morning to do it." On Monday, Wednesday and Friday he does 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise on an elliptical machine and 40 minutes of weight-training. On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday I skip the weights and do an hour of cardio. On Sunday I usually do sit-ups and push-ups so I get at least some exercise." Although he likes going to restaurants and social gatherings, Smith tries to make good food choices there, too. "I think if you eat in moderation and the right things, you are going to be okay," he says. "At almost any restaurant there is some type of healthy food."

"Eating the right snacks is important because it keeps your metabolism going," Smith says. "I don't eat a lot of junk food. Since I don't diet, I give myself maybe one day a week when all my choices for eating are not healthy. But the rest of the time I'm pretty strict with what I eat." Reed of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois reminds you to always check with your doctor on the diet best for you.

It's hard to avoid stress in his profession, Smith says, but he does the best he can. "One outlet for stress is working out. That is a peaceful time to exert some energy and get away from pressure. Another is a steamy shower. One of the best purchases I've ever made is my home steam shower - it's the greatest thing for you, and peaceful, too." To cut stress, he also reads and, as a spiritual person, spends time each day "in the Word."
