Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 4

Exercise 30 minutes everyday

Exercise 30 minutes everyday. When you do cardio your body will be burning calories at a higher rate for around the next 24 hours. When you build muscle it burns on average an additional 38 calories a day for each pound of muscle you gain.

Weeks 1 to 4

Do you Measure up?

Measure he following on the start of your challenge and the last day. Even though we might not see the results on the scale our progress will measure up. Measure yourself and log it wherever you like. Measure your chest, biceps, waist, hips, thighs and calves. Even just through this if you put in the effort you will eventually see the difference. Remember you didn't get where you are over night. The same will be true with the results.

"didn't get a chance to measure up."

Weeks 2 to 4

Cut out the extra calories. Drink one large glass of water before every meal.

Drink one large glass of water before every meal. It will help reduce the amount of calories you eat. Try not to drink your calories. Stick to water, small amounts of unsweetened coffee or even herbal teas. But continue watch the caffeine. It does dehydrate you.

Weeks 3 to 4

Try to cut out as many processed foods as you can.

If you can cut out at least half of the box dinners or frozen meals you consume every week. That time you save preparing your own food is time saved working out as hard. There are less calories in the same home cooked meal as processed. Plus by eating them fresh you are getting so many more nutrients your body needs to help you feel great!

Week 4

Don't forget...

Measure again and take pride in your results! Try to hold onto these healthier habits. Don't beat yourself up over a bump in the road. Get up and try again. Just because you have one slip in a day is not a reason to sabotage the rest or punish yourself. You Can Do Whatever You Put Your Mind Too! It's all a choice!

Week 4

Move around

I realize many people have to sit at work or school. So fidget and help burn off whatever calories you can. Bounce your leg or get up and move around for a minute. Park further from your destination. Take the stairs. Or simply go for a walk whenever you have a chance. Exercise during commercials. You name it, any movement helps!
