Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 12

YOU SLEEPING BEAUTY

Guidelines:
*GO TO BED EARLY ENOUGH TO NOT NEED AN ALARM CLOCK !* Without ample amounts of sleep (7hrs+) our bodies CANNOT repair nor optimize metabolism -- you will stay fat. If you are waking by an alarm clock, you are not getting enough sleep -- simple as that. This is one of the most CRUCIAL nuggets of health information around yet hardly anyone takes it seriously. If you refuse (no excuses) to get to bed early, know that EVERYTHING ELSE will be much harder for you -- let alone losing some weight. This is one of the foundations for your weight-loss. GOOD LUCK!

Weeks 1 to 12

"AND KNOWING IS *HALF* THE BATTLE !" -- G.I. JOE

Guidelines:
*JOURNAL YOUR FOOD* Did you know that some donuts and muffins contain a whopping 500+ calories?! Speaking of whoppers, that delicious Double Whopper w/ Cheese (1010),(King Size Fries (580), Dutch Apple Pie (320), & a sabotaging TOXIC "diet" soda (0) gives you 1910 calories; that's almost a day's worth of energy in ONE meal! Use a "nutritional information" website to educate yourself. It's not necessary to adopt an oppressive calorie-counting regiment, but do not lose track of what's happening.

Weeks 2 to 12

WARM TURKEY

Guidelines:
GIVE YOURSELF A REWARD ON A REGULAR BASIS. Most cannot say the have never, and will never, cheat on their weight-loss program. With the "cheating" comes regret and a lot of other self-esteem annihilating feelings. This is a major obstacle since quitting is often the end result. Remember, this is about over-all change. Unless you have the indomitable will of Ganhdi

HIIT - high intensity interval training
I've researched it to -- it's true. I always go for intensity over duration. High intensity exercise builds muscles -- which is key to raising metabolism.
