Week 1

Mini Challenge DAY #1: Determine your Bad habit and slash it out.

A: Junk Food Binge (Unhealthy eating) B: Couch Potato (Lazyness, Exercise is Non- Existant) C: Couch-Potato-Junk-Binger (Both of the above) Now you need to eliminate it, and replace it with the alternative. A: Remove all Junk Food, OUT! Bin it! NO temptations up in your house! B: You need to lock-up that TV remote with a sign saying 'BEWARE THIS REMOTE TURNS ON THE THING THAT MAKES YOU FAT!' (Unless you need it for exercise DVD's that's an exception). Secondly put a sign on that couch saying 'DONT YOU DARE SIT DOWN ON ME. I ALSO MAKE YOU FAT'. Then alternatively, Sit on the ground and do sit-ups or go for a run! C: Both of the Above. You have just prepared yourself for the rest of the week! :) YAY YOU!

Mini Challenge DAY #8: Intensify it & Cut to Portions.

A: It's time to manage, organise and portion size that healthy diet of yours! ALWAYS have 3 meals a day OR 6 Small snacks a day. Remember eat like a King for Breakfast, a Queen at Lunch and like a poor man at Dinner. If you decide to op for 6 small snacks. Have mini meals every 2 hours. Either choice will give you the energy you need and get your metabolisim going. Also if you haven't been drinking your 2.5L of Water a day. THIS IS YOUR EXTRA CHALLENGE THIS WEEK!

This would start to get your body more fitter and more prepared for future workouts! if you have only been doing 30 mins of exercise EXTRA CHALLENGE IS TO GO LONGER 45-60 mins now!

Motivation Tip #Exercise: Weightloss Reality TV shows!

Have you heard of 'I USED TO BE FAT' by MTV? It's a GREAT exercise motivator. ANY weightloss story is! If your ever feeling un motivated. Watch an Episode of a weightloss story before gym, or even better WHILE your at Gym. The story motivates you to keep going! As well it distracts you from the time you've spent on the machine. If they can do it you can to! It also helps having someone in the same situation struggling while you are on the tredmill.

Motivation Tip #Clean Eating: Blogs & Organisations

Reading Clean eating or healthy eatining blogs are a BIG help to keep you going! It inspires you to try new recipes and new food ideas. Keeps it exciting! Another thing to keep you eating right, is organsiing or pre cooking you food for the day or week. Makes it effortless to eat during the week, so you wont go an op for fast food! And if you need another motivation tip, try a get a new eating bowl, utensile ect. to accessorise or make that meal more exciting to have it! I got really excited to make smoothies when I bought a new glass cup to put it in, with a funky straw! The Little things you dont think of can help :)
