As Superman races around the globe at the speed of light, he can work full time as a reporter, save the world from peril, have a romance and enjoy a meal. (Did you know Superman was first created in Cleveland, where Dr. Mike works and Dr. Oz was born?)

But for mere mortals, it's harder to fit in everything you HAVE to do - work, get kids ready for school, commute and, oh yeah, sleep - and then find time to prepare a meal, exercise and feel like romance. But you can make time (really) if you develop a few fun habits.
 
Set a new routine: Get up 15 minutes earlier; use that extra time to eat a whole grain and lean protein breakfast. You'll avoid food follies all day long. On your lunch hour, don't eat at your desk; get out and walk, walk, walk. In the evening, when you walk into the house, DON'T head for the TV; DO head for the kitchen to dish up a healthy meal.
 
Consolidate cooking: On the weekend, make casseroles, broil fish or skinless poultry and stir up some soup; freeze single servings to dish up later. Chop up tomatoes, veggies and greens for salads and store in airtight containers.
 
Get the family up and moving: Start an early-morning, evening or weekend walking routine. You'll do more if you support each other.
 
Enjoy the bonus: Spending time with your partner working out and cooking strengthens bonds, amps up your libido and makes it easier to stick with new habits.
