Completed Mini-Challenges

Days 1 to 5

Watch what you eat!

Guidelines:
Since you're already on a diet, make sure you are eating protein rich and low fat foods. Protein is the food for your muscles. Take a few days to carefully monitor what you eat. Calories aren't as important at first, just concentrate on fat and protein content and the calories will fall in line!!

Days 11 to 14

add a 20 minute walk to your routine

Guidelines:
Use the walk as a cool down or a warm up, but walking for 20 minutes in addition to a 20-30 minute Strength training routine is a great way to begin forming great habits! :-)
