June Slim-Down Challenge: Day 13 – June 13, 2014

We are almost at the second weekend of our Slim-Down Challenge!

Today, we have a special challenge in store for you. Instead of eating 3 large meals throughout the day like you usually do, we are going to break it down to 6 smaller meals. Remember, this doesn’t mean you eat any more then you usually do! We wouldn’t want to go doubling our caloric intake for the day! The reason for doing this is simple: every time we eat, we get our digestive system moving and our metabolism ramps up, burning more calories. So the more often we eat, the more calories we can actually burn! The digestive system takes about 3 hours to complete it’s work, so try and space your meals out accordingly.

If you are having trouble coming up with 6 different meals, a Protein shake or Protein bar are good options for those in between meals!  Good luck!

June Slim-Down Challenge: Day 6 – June 6, 2014

Day 6 – No salt!

Sodium-Free Friday: try to go the entire day without salt in cooking, out to dinner, or in packaged items. Sodium leads to water and fat retention which can make losing weight more difficult. By cutting sodium you not only increase your chances of shedding lbs, but can you also prevent high blood pressure, reduce risk of heart attack, and possibly even diabetes complications.

Today’s challenge is to alternate 5 pushups and 5 sit ups at each commercial break during your favorite TV show. Let’s be honest, what are you really doing during those commercial breaks? Why not burn some calories and work those muscles while you wait for your show to come back on?  In the span of one program there are at least 5 commercial breaks, so you’ll have already done 25 push-ups and 25 sit-ups during the time it took to watch your show!

Not a TV person? Do this exercise right when you wake up for a refreshing start to your day!  Do the 5 pushups and 5 sit ups, rest, and repeat until you’ve done 5 sets of each.

Good luck!
