TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- Losing weight and getting healthy are often the top New Year's resolutions, but by the second week of February, about 80 percent of those goals fail.

So what are some easy steps to help you start 2016 on the right foot - and stay that way.

Aquenda Thornton and Suzette Lunan from Robeks Juice and Smoothies in Tallahassee joined us on WTXL Sunrise with some smoothie secrets.

They showed us how to make the cool cucumber smoothie, which includes cucumbers, apples, ginger and lemon.

This healthy drink gives you several servings of fruits and vegetables in just one glass. You're also getting all of the nutrients since you're not cooking any out.

Thornton and Lunan recommend using a juicer, since that will give your smoothie a better consistency, compared to using a blender.
