After all the summer fun, vacationing, celebrating, and at times eating anything and everything we wanted, its time to get back to business.
The challenge requires your focus and dedication, so therefore you need to be prepared in both mind and and body. It is advised that you first visit your doctor for a check-up before embarking on any weight loss program, or diet.
It is important that when starting the challenge, that you remain positive, and dedicated enough to work for the desired results.
Often times we become impatient, but long term effects can be accomplished depending on you, your diet, as well as a number of other factors, such as current health.
If you have been inactive for some time, be sure to stretch and stretch some more before starting any activity. Before actually doing any exercise and working out those muscles, a little stretching is needed in order to avoid any injury or soreness in your body.
Everything should be done in moderation. Find the level of exercise and training that suits you. It should be enough for you to be comfortable, but not too convenient that it will not be much of a challenge.
To assist you with your cleanse, you can find everything you need for the challenge below.
Now that you have joined, here are a few tips to assist you along the way.
The first week
The first week of the cleanse take long and steady walks for a little over twenty to thirty minutes. After the walk, follow it up with a good stretch. This takes so little of your time for the first week.
In less than two and a half hours you have taken that first step to a healthier lifestyle that could work to your advantage.
By the second week, it is good to focus on strengthening your upper body. This maintains your strength to be able to go through the whole cleanse, and conditioning you will be doing, throughout the challenge. During the third week, start walking briskly or jog for 15 - 20 minutes.
The fourth week should be spent on a low impact exercise such as swimming. To avoid boredom, do not be afraid to try something new. The last day of the fourth week is a time to solicit the support of the people you care about. Spend time with them or get them to be with you in your long walks. Remember, follow up your walks, and low impact exercises with a light upper body workout.
This is just the start of your life changes, and the greater good to come because of those changes. If by this first week you are able to stick to the 24-Day Challenge, you have a greater chance to further boost your weight loss with the steps Ive provided above and stay with the program until you achieve your desired result.
Try as much as possible to be unlike the people who give up easily just because they could not see the result they want at the time they wanted! Patience is a virtue. The same way it took your body time to gain all that weight, it will need time to exert itself to get rid of it. Stick to the weight loss program and you will lose weight. Just as I did, and continue to do.
