For today’s Challenge, we are going to be doing 5 sets of dips on the edge of the couch or any other sturdy chair. The chair dip works mostly on the tricep muscle group. It works mostly the back of your arm, while also working your chest and shoulder muscles to a lesser degree. This is a great at home exercise to help get that little extra definition you’re looking for!

That’s right, no sugar! Now, that doesn’t mean you have to avoid sugar of any kind- only the processed stuff!  That means with processed sugar is off the menu for the day. To achieve this, try eating natural foods. Instead of the processed stuff, get your sugar intake today from 3 pieces of fruit. It is just as sweet and you will get all the vitamins and health benefits that they contain. So grab an apple, and satisfy that sweet tooth the right way!

As you probably know by now, meal replacement shakes and bars are a great and tasty way to get the nutrition you need. It helps cut back unnecessary calories and other unwanted things, like fats and sugars. As with previous Monday’s, we will be substituting one of our meals with a meal replacement shake or bar. On top of that, we will be upping our Monday walk/jog from 15 to 20 minutes. That means a healthier meal and 20 minutes of quality exercise. The perfect combo to burn some fat! You can do it!

5 Killer Tips To Stay Healthy At Coming Parties

Getting ready to head to a party and worried about what impact it may have on your progress? If so, you need to get prepared. Proper preparation before attending a party is the best way to combat the typical high calorie intake that goes with them.

Here’s how.

Prepare A Juice Before You Go
Having something to take the edge off hunger is the best way to prepare yourself to avoid overeating. Consider whipping up a green juice smoothie using a nutribullet before you leave. You’ll get a high dose of nutrients and will feel energized all night long.

If you don’t have time to make your own, consider a Control Shake. It’ll keep you feeling satisfied so you reduce how much you eat.

Add A Little Extra Exercise
Going for a brisk walk before the party is not only going to help burn off some extra calories, but it’ll also put you in a healthier frame of mind. When you’ve done something positive for your body already, you’ll be less likely to indulge.

Plus, the activity can also help to reduce hunger as well.

Bring Your Own Healthy Side Dish
Bringing your own healthy side dish to the party is also a great way to know there will be something healthy there you can eat. If all that’s available is high-calorie, high fat options, you have no choice but to eat what’s served.

Avoid that problem by bringing your own.

Stand Away From The Table
Finally, make sure you position yourself away from the food table during the night. The closer you stand to it, the more likely you’ll be to reach for a snack when you shouldn’t.

So keep these tips in mind next time you’re heading to a party and you can make sure you enjoy yourself while keeping your diet on track.
