Summer Fit Club - Week 5

A few new rules (or food for thought) this week:

1) Get enough sleep: Make a point of going to sleep earlier and sleep at least 7 or 8 hours. When we don't sleep enough, we stress our body, and that means more production of cortisol, which in the end means more fat, especially around the belly.

2) If you are bored with last week's exercise routine here is a new one for you (thanks to Kathryn who likes to always take thing a step more difficult!), and remember it's ok to switch the exercises around so that your body won't get used to them (that's when they lose efficacy):

3) Lastly, continue to keep yourself motivated by reading up on foods, diet and exercises. These are some of the things that motivate me (from our board on Pinterest):

On day two of the 30 day challenge and like it a lot. I think it will be good on the arms and hopefully the abs eventually. Keep up the good work!
