Here are the exercise examples for the Beginner's Fitness Calendar. Just click the image to make it large enough to see more clearly and follow the instructions written to the side.

How to do the exercises for the Beginner's Fitness Challenge
Windmill
Just as you see in the pictures: Stand up with arms out, bend at the waist to touch right arm to the left foot. Stand back up straight, bend at the waist and touch your left arm to your right foot.

Side Twist
Start with hands touching and elbows out. Slowly turn left and back to the middle position; then turn right and back to the middle position.

Chair Squat
Just like you do a squat with arms out, but don't let your bottom actually sit on the chair.

Knee Lifts
Sit on a chair, hand holding each side, lift your knees. Here is a video example.

Arm Circles 
There is not am image shown for the arm circles, but they are the same ones we did in gym class as a kid: small arm circles, large arm circles, forwards and backwards. You can do these as comfortable for your shoulders and arms; just make sure to do them for the range of motion and flexibility.

Beginner / Intermediate Fitness Challenge

February Fitness Challenge Intermediate Workout Calendar

This second calendar has exercises that are familiar to most of us from past challenges. Please use this graphic chart for examples of how you should do these intermediate workouts. Click the image to make it larger and see the exact formats.

How to do the exercises for the Intermediate Fitness Challenges.
Squats
Do them exactly as you see in the picture (arms folded), buttocks out, back straight at a slant.

Leg Lifts
If it is too uncomfortable lifting your neck as shown in the picture, you can lay flat and lift legs straight up.

Push Ups
Keep your arms and back in formation; on your knees and cross feet OR no knees and legs straight.

Lunges
Do your lunges as seen in the pictures. Quality over speed; take your time and do them right.

Crunches
Place a rolled towel under the small of your back for better comfort and form. Only go as high as you see in the picture.

Kick Backs
Make sure to choose a sturdy chair, hold and lean forward with a straight back, lift your legs straight as you see in the picture. Lift left leg and then right leg ---> That equals on set, so if the day says to do 12 that is 1 (left and right legs), 2 (left and right legs), 3 (left and right legs) and so on, so 24 total.
Check In Weekly In Our Weight Loss Group

What Is A Burpee? Benefits of Burpees, How To Do A Burpee & Variations

What is a Burpee?  This is a fun exercise that you can do just about anywhere that you have the space. You can make them your full workout or you can do a burpee in between your weight lifting, planks, other cardio, etc. It is important to learn the proper form and know your body's capabilities before even trying to do a burpee routine.

Why do we burpee? The benefit of burpees is a full body workout that is both cardiovascular exercise and strength training. So, burpees burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time and burn the body fat, too.

How To Do A Burpee?

The Adapted / Modified Burpee videos below will show you how to do easier and / or less strenuous versions of them, or you can challenge yourself with the Sumo Burpee routine in the 2nd video (add a push up in between or do them super fast). If you are not flexible or out of shape, or you have had a mild to severe injury, you should ask your doctor before doing these and / or use your better judgement before jumping into a burpee workout routine.


How To Do The Perfect Burpee - This guy does an awesome job of showing you how to do a regular burpee and burpees with push ups in between. Doesn't he make it look so easy? It might be for you; give it a try!

Sumo Burpee Exercise

This is how to do the Sumo Burpee on our calendar for the January Fitness Challenge. If you can't do a burpee, then replace with one of the modified burpee exercises below or do squats, plank or other helpful exercise.

Burpee Variations, Adapted / Modified Burpees Exercise

Check out these videos for burpee variations that are easier for beginners, out of shape or injury.

Step Out Burpees are easier because you adapt the speed and jumping. It is good for people who need to start off a little more controlled because of flexibility or coordination issues, or have a mild injury. Slow this down how you need; just make sure the format is right to avoid any injury.


Wall Burpees are an extremely low impact and easier way to do burpees if you cannot jump, get down on the ground or have injury. This could be good for seniors just getting back into a routine.

Benefits of Burpees / Burpee Exercise Routine

Here's an awesome chart for how to do burpees:

No Junk Food & Exercise Calendar - January Fitness Challenge

I am posting both of these resources just in case you missed them ...

This January 2016 we are exercising daily and doing a no junk food challenge. Don't worry if you missed getting started on 1st because you can jump in any day that is best for you (the sooner the better). The holidays are over, so we need to get back on track with our weight loss goals. Join our Weight Loss Support Group if you're with us, so you can check in, too!

The No Junk Food Challenge | Clean Eating Goals

The No Junk Food Challenge can help you lose 1 to 2 pounds a week.
The goal of the No Junk Food Challenge is to cut the processed refined sugars from your diet. You will eat NO JUNK FOOD and NO WHITE BREAD for the month of January 2016, and hopefully forever by replacing your favorite "junk" with healthy substitutions that you can stick to (I will post some of these soon!).

This is a great way to cleanse your body from all of the junk you ate over the holidays and get back on a healthy track. This food change can help kick start your 1 to 2 pounds a week weight loss (or more).
--- Wouldn't that be awesome!

NOTE: You can take this No Junk Food Challenge even further by giving up white rice and noodles, too!!!

CLICK HERE to print and put on your fridge!

How can I give up junk food, white bread and even the rice / noodles?

Do the best you can and take it one day at a time as not to overwhelm yourself.

Just get all the junk out of your house; buy, cook and eat whole foods!

Ask your family for support! They can do the challenge with you or at least agree to eat their junk food out of the house and far away from you while you are making this major effort.

Use the snacking time you're giving up to exercise:


Exercise Calendar | January Fitness Challenge

January Exercise Calendar, 2016 New Year Fitness Challenge
CLICK HERE to print this calendar as a guide!

There are just 3 exercises built upon each day:

Jumping Jacks

Sumo Burpees


Side Plank


Here's the deal ... Do what you can from this list. If you can't jump, then either do a modified jumping jack or skip the jumping jacks and burpees; just do the planks each day and take a walk. If you can't side plank then do a regular or modified plank. Do give yourself any excuse not to exercise with us each day even if you need to do chair exercises as your challenge instead. The goal is to plug in and exercise with all of us each day, so that you can become more strong, toned, energetic and feel great! Exercise helps us with weight loss and mobility as we age, too. So, please make sure to print, bookmark or share this page, so that you have this info when you work out.

You can do this January Fitness Challenge with or without the Skinny Fiber & Skinny Body Max Weight Loss Challenge; just make sure to join the group:

Plank Exercises - Videos for Modified, Basic, Elbow & Side Planks

Want a full body workout in just a few seconds? How about tightening up your core / mid section without having to do crunches and use ab weight machines all of the time? These are the main benefits of plank exercises, so check out the videos below to learn more:

Traditional Plank - How To Do The Perfect Plank


This is how to do the perfect forearm plank (easier). She makes it look simple? Meanwhile, this bent arm plank becomes just as challenging as any other as time goes on.


This is the perfect straight arm plank. Similar to push up formation except you just hold the position for the designated amount of seconds or minutes.

Plank w/ Knees Down VS Regular Hover Plank



These two videos show modified plank styles where your arms are half down as normal, but your knees are down to make it a little easier on you. 1/2 way through both videos shows the second plank options where the legs are straight and the feet on the toes like a traditional plank.


Side Plank Options
Side planking is much more challenging and fun. Here are some examples:


Side Plank w/ One Knee Down


Side Plank On Toes

There are so many different ways to plank from these main formats. You can lift arms and legs in rotation, open and close your legs like jumping jacks, reverse your body, use a ball, etc. However you choose to plank, just use correct form and stick with it for strength and toning.

3 Reasons Why Cutting Refined Carbs Helps Weight Loss (Health Answers)

Best 3 reasons why you should give up refined carbohydrates for weight loss that is healthy and long term!

Research indicates that cutting back on carbohydrates is an efficient way to lose weight and improve your health. High-carb foods, like wheat flour and sugar, promote binge eating, stimulate your appetite, and increase caloric intake. The problem is that this is easier said than done for most people. Refined carbohydrates tend to make up the bulk of what an average person eats. Bread, pasta, crackers, cookies, cakes, and pretzels are just several examples of foods that contain wheat flour and/or sugar. Plus, all of the so called "healthy foods" we buy pre-made in the store have list of ingredients that we don't even know what they mean.

Since food labels tend to mislead us into thinking they're are healthy, it is best to avoid packaged and pre-cooked foods all together and replace them with REAL, WHOLE, FOODS like fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts and seeds. If you must eat processed foods, then only buy packaged foods if you understand what is on the label. Lastly, do your best to avoid labels that say "fat free" or "low fat" foods unless they are truly fat free or low fat whole foods listed above. This is because fat free foods have contributed significantly to the problems of obesity and metabolic disease.

Here are the 3 reasons why cutting refined carbs helps with healthy weight loss:

Refined Carbohydrates Encourage Binge Eating

Carbohydrates are converted to glucose (sugar) when digested. Wheat and sugar contain highly digestible carbohydrates that quickly enter the bloodstream and cause a spike in blood sugar levels. When this happens, your body sends insulin to bring those levels down.

When elevated blood sugar is lowered, low blood sugar levels become the uncomfortable result. Low blood sugar is dangerous, so your appetite increases in order to bring it up to normal as soon as possible. You crave foods that quickly elevate your blood sugar, starting the cycle all over again.

Junk food, white bread, noodles and sugar is addictive. This is how it hurts your body; causes obesity and metabolic disorder!

Wheat and Sugar Have Addictive Properties that Stimulate Appetite

Taking out refined carbohydrates decreases caloric intake. Studies have shown that those who remove these foods from their diets consume an average of about 400 calories fewer than those who maintain a high carbohydrate diet.

Wheat's polypeptides pass through the blood brain barrier, reaching opiate receptors in the brain and producing feelings of euphoria. Wheat becomes an addictive substance that can cause symptoms of withdrawal when cut from the diet.

Eating sugar leads to similar results. It releases opioids and dopamine, which are also activated by addictive drugs. This leads to craving and bingeing. A person who regularly consumes sugar will also experience withdrawal effects.

Weight Loss can be as simple as Good Carbs vs Bad Carbs; Cuttubg refubed carbs will help with your new years resolution to lose weight!

Low Carb Works Better for Weight Loss Than Low Fat
Several studies that have compared low-fat diets with low carbohydrate diets show that cutting carbs is more effective in promoting significant weight loss. In addition to taking off weight, low-carb diets improve other health markers, including lower insulin sensitivity and triglyceride levels in people who are obese.

Cutting out refined carbohydrates like wheat and sugar has proven to be a healthy and effective way to lose weight. A diet that is lower in carbohydrates tends to be lower in calories. When you remove high carbohydrate, addictive foods that stimulate your appetite and replace them with nutritious, satisfying foods, you can lose weight naturally without hunger.

Join our Weight Loss Support Online Group for low carb lifestyle tips, healthy recipes, diys, tips and friendships.
Join Our Weight Loss Group For Low Carb Recipes, Tips & Support!
Eating low carb (or even lower carb) does not have to be so hard or feel so depriving. It just takes understanding how to make the best low carb food choices, planning how to make this a lifestyle change instead of another failed fad diet and getting the low carb recipes, support and tips you need to make this a realistic weight loss and life long change for you. JOIN OUR GROUP to learn more!

5 Best Eating Tips For Weight Loss In The 2016 New Year

Is it your resolution to lose weight? Here are 5 quick eating tips for weight loss in 2016 new year! Merry Christmas!!!

ACCORDING TO NIELSEN RESEARCH, the top 5 new year's resolutions last year included staying fit and healthy, losing weight, as well as enjoying life, spending more time with family and spending less / saving more money. The article goes on to explain that fresh fruits and veggies were our top weight loss food choices, but 76% of people did not follow a weight loss or diet program in 2014 and "65% of U.S. consumers say they plan to exercise more this year, while 33% and 31% plan to focus on portion control and calorie reduction". *

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU? Its pretty much the same old story ... We set a goal to lose weight, get fit and healthy each year but have the habit of not following through on everything it takes to accomplish our weight loss goals even though we've done better at choosing more fresh fruits and veggies over junk food.

I think I'm safe in saying that losing weight, getting fit and healthy is at the top of your resolutions list this year. If so, make sure to subscribe to this blog to follow along for motivation, tips and weight loss support in the 2016 year.

5 BEST EATING TIPS FOR WEIGHT LOSS IN 2016!!!

Even More Fruits and Vegetables To Your Diet

Eat more green vegetables and low sugar fruits for weight loss in the 2016 New Year
Vegetables and fruits are packed with compounds that improve health, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Increasing your consumption of these highly nutritious foods can help manage your blood pressure, cardiovascular health and regulate your blood sugar. They also help with your weight loss goals because high fiber fruits and vegetables fill you up so that you eat less meat and carbohydrates. Too much protein and carbs can be the ruin for many types of diets because the extra calories are converted to excess sugar and then turns to fat in your body. This is why eating more green veggies (especially green leafy vegetables) and low sugar fruits (like avocados and berries) should be a goal for your weight loss in the 2016 New Year!

Skip Sugary Drinks and Desserts

Give up sugary drinks and desserts for weight loss!
Consumption of sugar is associated with increased weight, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. These risks increase in women over the age of 50 and are direct contributors to the climb in child obesity over the years. Sugary drinks and desserts are empty calories that add weight and provide little to no nutrition. Keep this in mind at the end of meals when it's time for dessert. Choose fresh fruit instead of sugary canned fruits; low sugar yogurt (some on the market have under 8g sugar) or frozen kefir bars (only 10g sugar and has 10 Probiotic Cultures) is an awesome substitution for refined sugar ice cream and milkshakes; desserts made with stevia and / or low carb (not using white flour, sugar, etc) will do your body better, too; and creating the habit of drinking tea, with stevia or honey, after meals can help you completely eliminate the urge for dessert, as well as wanting to eating later in the evenings. As for drinks, we all know that water does the body BEST, but sometimes we need to break up water drinking with low caffeine teas, low sugar fruit smoothies (w/ green veggies) and small amounts of freshly made juices. If anything, you can always add some fresh fruits and vegetables to infuse your water with nutrients, as well as add a little flavor. You can find some of these infused recipes by CLICKING HERE! Ditching sugary drinks and desserts will help with your weight loss in the 2016 year. These suggested changes will eventually help you feel satisfied after meals and crave sweet foods and drinks less, though with better consequences for your health.
Change The Order Of Your Meals
Try eating a large breakfast and lunch, and eat lighter meals for dinner!
Diet experts recommend reversing the order of your meals. Breakfast should be the heartiest meal of the day. Lunch should be slightly less, but enough to fuel you through the day. Dinner should be the lightest meal to suit slower digestion during the night hours and lower energy needs during sleep. Eating light later in the day can also be helpful for anyone troubled by acid reflux when you lie down at night and the quality of your sleep in general, too. Changing the order of your meals is not an easy habit to make, though can really make a difference in your weight loss and health. I've even noticed that some of the raw food vegans I follow online eat their heavier gourmet meals earlier and have a large (maybe huge to us) salad in the evening with a salad dressing made of veggies and citrus. None of them are fat and have few to no health issues. Just saying ...
Dine In, Not Out
Cook more organic foods and whole foods instead of going out to eat all of the time!
Research shows that diners consume more fat, sugar and salt when they eat in a restaurant than they do at home. Restaurant chefs are more concerned with pleasing their patrons' taste buds than managing their weight. You will do a much better with weight management in 2016 if you limit eating out as often, as well as if you control your consumption of these ingredients (fat, sugar, salt) when cooking at home. Invite friends and /or family over to try new recipes (let them cook for you, too). You can also join our Weight Loss Support Group to participate in our 2016 weight loss project. This will be a great way to have fun while learning how to cook and eat better; or at least how to limit your calorie intake so that you can lose weight without being hungry.
Cut Out Fried Foods - Eat Healthy Fats
Eat
Over the years, there has been plenty of advice and studies about how beneficial good fats are for your diet, weight loss and health. THIS IS TRUE, but for most of us there is still an understanding of proper food portions and calorie intake to keep in mind; even if you're doing the Atkins, Paleo and Ketogenic diet. Protein and fats add up quickly, therefore going over the proper intake for your body can contribute to weight gain, plateau, ketoacidosis or even metabolic acidosis. Frying adds a lot of flavor to foods, but the additional fat makes a significant difference when trying to lose weight. Studies on weight loss for older women show that removing fried food from your diet will help you lose weight faster, keep it off more easily and another benefit is better cardiovascular health. If you are not an older woman, eating less fried foods can be just as healthful for you now and when you are middle age, too. However, if denying yourself fried foods feels too much like a deprivation, then still have them as an occasional treat. But remember that "occasional" should mean "every once in a while" and eat proper portion sizes.
