Completed Mini-Challenges

Weeks 1 to 7

Excercise VIGOROUSLY at least 3 times a week

Guidelines:
When you exercise, the higher your heart rate, the more fat actually burns and burns fat long after you are done as well. This could be with cardio such as running or boxing or walking uphill, or it could be done with heavy weight lifting. Your heart rate should be around 80%. If you can talk with out breathing heavy, then you're not working hard enough! TIP: You can also work this in intervals. For example, 2 minutes of light walking, 5 minutes of vigorous exercise, repeat, and so on.

Weeks 1 to 7

Stay away from sugar!

Guidelines:
Just like the description says, stay away from sugar! Sugar makes you hungry, and frankly you don't want to feel ravenous when you begin a new lifestyle, plus sugar anything with sugar tends to have way more calories, is easy to overeat, and makes you feel bloated! And by this, we don't mean only the grainy sweet stuff, but also bread, pasta, sugar based sauces (bbq, teriyaki, sweet and sour), too much fruit, candies, cakes etc. TIP: Try substituting regular sugar intake with splenda; use sugar free instead; check sugar on every processed food you might eat.

Weeks 1 to 7

Portion Control

Guidelines:
Each day make sure your portions are smaller. TIP: Use smaller containers, smaller plates, smaller spoons. It's easier to control. Serve yourself half of however much you would actually like to eat, and DO NOT finish the plate (except for once a day). Try cutting portions ALREADY controlled in half, at least 1 item a day. For example, if you usually ate 2 string cheese for a snack, and cut it down to 1, make an exception for 1 week and cut that 1 into 1/2 instead. Easy!

Weeks 1 to 7

Don't overcompensate.

Guidelines:
Just because you are working out later does not mean you have to have an enormous breakfast or lunch. If you need a pre-workout snack, try a slice of turkey breast instead of a protein bar (which can have 300 calories.. and then the only reason why you worked out was to burn that protein bar off :(

Weeks 1 to 7

Eat 3 meals a day, 2 snacks a day, and 1 dessert

Guidelines:
Make sure your snacks and dessert are extra light. Maybe try a laughing cow cheese, a string cheese, 2 slices of turkey breast, 2 slices of turkey bacon, some snow peas, something light and fresh. Dessert has to be light as well; Maybe try a sugar free pudding or a sugar free popsicle (or maybe 2 on occasion). Delicious.

Weeks 1 to 7

THE TOUGH ONE

Guidelines:
Make sure you make it your absolute goal EACH minute of the day to lose 2-5 pounds a week. This is what makes it the ultimate challenge. If you feel this is too much or may risk your health, then this is NOT the challenge for you.

Weekend Bliss

Guidelines:
Don't be so tough on yourself on the weekend. This doesn't mean that you can blow you diet, but may for a meal, have an extra bite of steak; have an extra snack; eat a little sugar, maybe a handful of dark chocolates. A little bit of bliss.
