Mini Challenge Results

Drink more water!!

Guidelines
8-10 8 oz glasses of pure water a day is perfect! DIET BITES gives some fun facts about drinking water.. I know drinking boring ole water is a pain, so keep these in mind to keep you motivated! - water is very filling and can sometimes wipe out hunger pains - water to the kidneys is like a soothing crème to dry, cracked skin - water enhances the look of your skin and nails, and may aid those experiencing facial breakouts - water helps flush out toxins in the body, as well as sodium which can trigger water-weight gain - water keeps constipation at bay - ample water in the diet will make you feel better - water contains zero calories p.s. Dont overdo yourself in drinking water. 8-10 glass is good. It is possible to drink to much!

Mini Challenge Results

Exercise exercise excerise. Studies say 50 minutes a day, but we all have to start somewhere!

Guidelines
I got this information off of FoxNews.com. personal TV channel preferences aside, its really good info! "In a 2001 paper, the ACSM recommended a minimum of 150(roughly 30 minutes per day 5 times per week) of moderate-intensity physical activity for overweight and obese adults to improve health; however, 200 to 300 minutes per week was recommended for long-term weight loss. Specifically, evidence published after 1999 indicates that between 150 and 250 minutes per week of moderate intensity physical activity is effective in preventing weight gain greater than 3% in most adults but will provide "only modest" weight loss. Greater amounts of weekly physical activity — in the order of 250 minutes or more per week — have been associated with "significant" weight loss, the ACSM notes. Overweight and obese adults will most likely lose more weight and keep it off with at least 250 minutes per week of exercise.
