This time of year it is so challenging to keep off unwanted "LB's", but we can do this together! This will be our first test, lets set a goal for this week to workout NO LESS than 4 times this week! Just to make sure the excuses don't take over, I will put up a full body workout to do 4 times over this upcoming holiday week!
For every exercise listed, do 4 sets of 8-10 reps. The weight should be about 65-75% of your max. If you do not know what your max is, chose a weight that makes the last two reps of every set almost impossible to complete. That bit of effort will take you to a new realm of fat burning. Be sure to stretch for at least 30 mins after your workout.

You made it to the end of the challenge! How has it been going?!? Do you see how simple it is to make positive modifications to your diet?!? The last good habit change is to find no less than thirty minutes a day of mental health exercises. Just like our physical bodies need exercise, so do our brains! This will not only reduce stress and anxiety, but it also will improve your sleep! Some examples of mental exercises would be; Meditation, Reading, listening to soothing music, deep breathing, adult coloring books, etc.
Hope everyone is enjoying the challenge, thus far, we will be focusing on sleep! Everyone loves sleep, but in my experience, it is one of the hardest things for people to obtain. That being said, we will be setting a daily goal of obtaining 6 to 8hrs of sleep. This can include those little afternoon naps, as well, it is just so beneficial to give ourselves the proper amount of rest and recharge.
Take advantage of this three day weekend,
go outside and do something active for no less than 30mins a day!
Let us know what activity you did each day!
