For today’s challenge, You can either choose to shun the elevator and escalators, or you can choose to do squats instead. If you choose the stair option, make sure you stick to it and walk up plenty of stairs! If the stairs start to get you tired, take a break and have a cold drink! You can even try one of our protein filled cold drinks to give you an extra nutritious boost! If your life doesn’t involve that many stairs, you might be better off with the squats instead. If you have opted for the squat route, you will be doing 10 squat, 5 times. You think you’re up for it? No matter what you choose, the important thing today is to get those leg muscles working! The leg muscle group is one of the largest in the human body and it is important to treat it as such! So let’s get out there and get those legs aching!

Since we are in week four and this is our last “water day” for the Slim-Down Challenge, we will be once again upping our water intake. Instead of 11 cups, today, we will be drinking 12 full glasses of water! It may sound like a lot, but if you have done our previous “water day” challenges, we know you can handle one more cup! Remember, drinking water will keep you hydrated, your skin clear and boost your metabolism helping you burn those extra calories without any extra exercise! All those benefits and all you have to do is drink! So raise your glasses and lets do this one right!

It’s a beautiful Tuesday and we have a new and exciting challenge for you today. We call it “No Sugar Tuesday!

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!
