Weeks 3 to 8

Take your diet to the next level for a cleaner, healthier you!

Guidelines:
No matter what your diet consists of, we can all eat cleaner. If you eat fast food, ditch it. If you drink sodas, replace them with water or tea. If you're already a master of your diet, try eating at least 50% raw fruits and vegetables. Whatever your current diet is...take it up a notch! I'm attemping 100% raw for 5 days. Who's with me?

Weeks 4 to 8

Get creative with your workouts 2 days a week!

Guidelines:
Oftentimes, our bodies get accustomed to the workout we are doing and they begin to lose their effectiveness. For 2 out of 5 workouts, do something you don't normally do. Try hot yoga, kickboxing, run outside if your normally use a treadmill. I just downloaded the Couch to 5k app to train for a 5k!

Stay full longer by eating protein at every meal!

Even if you're vegan, you can manage protein at every meal. Beans, quinoa, and nuts are great source or lean meats if you are a carnivore. Protein is a vital component of a healthy diet!

Muscle weighs more than fat :(
It's not like I don't know this, and even though I see my clothes fitting better and I know I'm getting more toned, I'm not seeing the scale move. Frustrating!

Happy in H-Town
I bought a yoga ball and use it as my office chair! It makes you sit up straight and engage your core. Then you can move around in circles or bounce up and down. Work and workout at the same time!
