Drop a Size in 2 weeks.... Healthy Living

6 Goals:

1. Log Your Calories:

Set your daily calorie budget with the BMI calculator first, then track, track, track. Studies show that by simply writing down what you eat, you will eat less.

Goal: 1 Log in/day

2. Veg Out:

The USDA’s new nutritional guidelines recommend filling half you plate at every meal with vegetables and fruits, and the other half with whole grains and protein.

Goal 2: 1 “Plate” of fruits and vegetable/day

3. Put Down The Pop:

For two weeks, cut all soda out of your diet. Even diet soda has been linked to weight gain and obesity.

Goal: Limit: 0 sodas/day

4. Get Moving:

Aerobic exercise burns fat, and improves your overall health. It doesn’t matter what you do, just get your heart rate pumping.

Goal: 120 minutes/week (or just 30 minutes 4x/week)

5. Pump Up the Pushups:

It’s time to tone! Pushups are one of the best all-over strengthening moves out there! Work your arms, shoulders, and chest daily with this simple exercise.

Goal: 10 Pushups/day

6. Tone Your Tummy:

Strengthen your core, and flatten your stomach with daily situps. They’re the first step to a beach-ready body!

Goal: 25 situps/day
