3 WEEK: 3 MOVE CHALLENGE – DAY 1

As promised I started the 3week : 3day challenge this morning! Yes as soon as I got up this morning it was down to business. I decided to split my workout up into sets:
• 25 sit ups
• 8 push ups
• 25 sit ups
• 8 push ups
• 25 sit ups
• 10 push ups
• 25 sit ups

REMEMBER!! You don’t have to do your daily workout routine all at the one time, you can break it up over your day as you please, this is just easier for me as the morning before work is the most time I have in the day! For example you could do 50 sit ups in the morning, 13 push ups at lunch, 50 sit ups at dinner and 13 push ups in the evening. Do what suits you best, you will still reap the same results! Designing your workout plan to suit your timetable is essential in order to help you stick to the plan and not miss a day!

Don’t forget to take the stairs at any chance you get today, that ELEVATOR IS YOUR ENEMY! 🙂 Lucky for me I work on the fifth floor of a very big building, all the more walking!

Get in those pints of lemon water too! They will leave you feeling energised , rejuvenated and it is a great alkaline booster, improves digestion, cleanses your liver, boosts your immune system, helping to fight infections and provides the body with antioxidants.

I was running a little late this morning with my new routine in place so may not of drank my morning pint of lemon water but there’s always the rest of the day to squeeze it in! Its never to late! If you haven’t started already you always can now! 🙂

3 Week: 3 Move Challenge

So Im on work placement for college for the next 14 weeks so I’m going to be busy everyday of the week! However I seen this 3 Week: 3 Move Challenge and I do love a challenge!

Lauren Conrad recently posted about this 3 Week: 3 Move Challenge and so I decided sure why not give it a go!

The Challenge involves completing 3 simple moves everyday for 3 weeks:

• minimum 100 ab crunches
•minimum 26 push ups
take the stairs instead of the elevator

To add to this try drinking a pint of lemon water before each main meal of the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner), everyday for three weeks too! This will help help you detox your body along with many other health benefits.

Make Your Own Smoothie!

All you need is:
• Frozen mixed berries
• Natural yoghurt
• Ice if required

Simply pour 2-3 cups of natural yoghurt into the blender and add 1-2 cups of frozen berries and blend until smooth.
As frozen ingredients are being used ice is not needed, however if you choose to use fresh fruit , ice will ensure your smoothie is still refreshing and cool.

Tip: You can use extra protein or vitamin supplements in your drinks to suit your lifestyle and preference.

An average grapefruit is made up of 73% Vitamin C, which boosts our immune system, lowers cholesterol and reduces the chance of developing any disease or illness.

Grapefruit also contain fat burning properties and research has proven that eating just half a grapefruit before each meal can stimulate weight loss.

This low calorie fruit is perfect for breakfast, lunch, a snack or any other meal you fancy!
