Making baby steps to becoming a healthier individual is a great way to lose a couple extra pounds and tone up. During my blog this week I am going to challenge you to make even more of a commitment to being a more fit individual.
Firstly we are going to talk about diet. My first challenge is to pick 3 nights a week where you do not consume any white carbs. I'm talking breads, chips, pastas. Instead try some new things, like spaghetti squash or veggies with dips. Carbs are quickly stored as fat because they can sustain long term energy. Your body is constantly in fear that it is going into starvation mode, 4-5 hours without food. While your body thinks it is doing you a favor, it really isn't.
Secondly we are going to talk about fitness. This challenge is going to be done at least 5 days a week. Complete three sets of 25 squats, 30 crunches, 15 wall push ups, 20 jumping jacks, and a 30 second plank. This workout shouldn't take you more than 15-20 minutes to complete. It's quick, its easy, and its not too strenuous.
Take my challenge and do both of these things for 30 days. I guarantee that you will start feeling better about yourself after only 30 days and it will make you want more! Don't forget to take before and after pictures to really see the differences!
