Day 4 Strong Core Workout
For today’s workout, you’re going to notice a little bit more than just a burn in your core – we’re also going to be utilizing exercises that work your entire body including your arms, back, and booty.
When it comes to losing fat it’s important to get and maintain muscle mass, not just in your stomach, but also your entire body. This will help you boost your metabolism and get results even faster!
Day 4 Nutrition Challenge: The Worst Meal Fix
Right now you should have a full day worth of food journaling in front of you.
In today’s nutrition task, you’re going to identify the worst meal of your day and fix it/clean it up.
Here are some recommendations depending on what your nutrition journal reveals:
- Breakfast If you find that your typical breakfast option is full of sugar and caffeine, try replacing it with a homemade nutrient-loaded smoothie. Smoothies are also an easy way to add in extra veggies…just throw in some frozen spinach or kale!
- Lunch If your typical lunch is a coma-inducing high carb meal, try replacing it with an energizing salad. The great thing about salads is you can get one almost anywhere: restaurants, salad bars, premade at the grocery store or make one homemade. Eating a salad a day for a week will dramatically reduce abdominal bloat, double your energy and help you lose unwanted weight.
- Snacks If you typically eat junk food for your snacks, try replacing them with a combination of fruit and nuts; like an apple and a handful of cashews or grapes and almonds.
- Dinner Hopefully you’re already implementing the Dinner Veggie Swap. But if you’re not, replace any starches like rice, potatoes and bread with fresh vegetables like kale, green beans, broccoli and bell peppers.
The above are just examples of how you can fix the worst meal of your day to cut calories and keep getting results.
If you’re ever unsure, simply choose a protein + fat + vegetable, you can never go wrong with this healthy combination.
The Worst Meal Fix: Identify the worst meal of your day and clean it up.
