MONDAY CHALLENGE! WHO'S IN? Water ONLY Challenge! No coffee, tea, alcohol, or juice! “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.” - Loren Eiseley Want your mind to be totally blown? Look up Dr. Masaru Emoto’s research on water! You’ll never look at water the same way again. We all know that drinking water is good for us, yet far too many people are walking around dehydrated! This shows up in so many ways from dry skin, to headaches, to lack of concentration, to fatigue and joint pain… (and this is just the beginning). Basically, everything in your body is able to function better when you’re hydrated. Now only that, but EVERYTHING gets better when you’re hydrated… it will: • Help you to maintain a healthy body weight • Boost your energy • Help with digestion • Improve the quality of your skin • Help your immune system to function optimally • Help prevent depression • Help you get rid of toxins in your body Your challenge this week is to drink NOTHING BUT WATER! No coffee, no tea (except herbal), no juices, and no alcohol! Basically nothing liquid except water! Let’s get back to basics this week and take a break from caffeine and the excess sugars that we’re drinking. Let’s stop flooding it with acidic coffee in the morning and swap it for a big glass of water with lemon instead. Keep a water bottle with you throughout the day every day this week. Your goal is to drink at least half your body weight in ounces. (Water that you drink during your workouts does not count!) You up for our water-only challenge this week? Your body, skin, and energy levels will thank you. Leave a comment below and let me know!

Take a “breathing break,” sit down for two minutes and focus on nothing but your breathing and listening to your body. 3. Brush your teeth!

MONDAY CHALLENGE! No Added Sugar Challenge: Do you know how much sugar you eat during the day? Have you ever checked? There is an easy way to do that: write down everything you eat during the day (be honest!), and then use ingredient labels or simply Google how many grams of sugar each food has and count. The World Health Organization recommends about 25g (or less!) added sugar per day. This is because excess sugar intake can spike your blood sugar levels, cause you to feel more hungry, have mood swings, store excess fat, and worse… can cause diabetes and a whole host of other issues. Think you may be consuming too much sugar? Here are a few ways you can reduce your daily sugar consumption: • Be more aware of what’s in the food you’re eating by reading the labels. • Drink more water, especially when you feel like snacking (because cravings could be a sign of dehydration!) • Try using coconut sugar instead of regular table sugar (which won’t raise blood sugar nearly as fast). • Have healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner (so you’ll be less hungry afterwards and won’t go around hunting for snacks.) • Try preparing your meals at home instead of eating out, because that’s one of the surest ways to control what you are eating. So let’s kick this inflammation-causing fire-starter to the curb and not invite it into your body in the first place. This week’s challenge is to keep added sugars to UNDER 25 grams per day, each day this week! Sugar that is naturally occurring in the whole foods that you’re eating is ok. But this means that any recipe that has “sugar” in it should get shuffled to the back of the box! This also means you need to limit the sugar in your coffee and check EVERY label of everything you’re eating this week! Are you in for this not-so-sweet challenge this week!? Let me know in a comment below!

Here's a post from one I the ladies in our Accountability Group. Had to share... I wanted to say Thank You to everyone in this group. I do not share often but have been following since our Empowerment group started in December. I had a three-month goal and feeling awesome. Energetic and lighter, mentally and physically. I still have a long way to go but I am on the right path. My next goal journey starts tomorrow. I have the routine and the nutrition on schedule, now those workouts are my focus. I know it is not about the scale, but in addition to feeling great, clothes fitting better, I am under 200#. I have not been on that side of 200 in over 16 years. Please join me in raising today's Shake! To all of you, Coach Mel and me !!!!!
