DAY 1~ Hey ya!!
Today’s suggested workout – Upper Body- SlimChick Purple:

Week #1’s Fitness Focus~ Build Endurance.
Endurance is your aerobic fitness. It's what allows you to Go, Go, Go!! This week take some time to strive to be MORE ACTIVE! Here's some ideas on how to increase your ENDURANCE:
•    Walk more- take your dog or kids for a walk, us a pedometer and measure your steps, strive for 10,000/day
•    Stand more- refuse to sit unless 100% necessary, try a standing work station
•    Do more cleaning- End of year cleaning time! organize, give away, sell unused items
•    Get out in nature- hike or bike on trials near your home, do some landscaping, outdoor planting, etc...
•    Join a running club or sign up for a race, it will give you the motivation to hit the pavement.  BTW- running outside is so much more effective than on a treadmill, try it!!
•    Buy a heart rate monitor and USE IT!! Get in your aerobic zone and strive to stay there for 20, 30, 40, 50 or even 60 mins!! You'll be amazed at how quickly your heart will get stronger and how fast your endurance improves!

 Week #1’s Diet Focus~ Drink More Water!
A good goal intake is at least half of your body weight in ounces daily, but often times up to 1 gallon a day is recommended for those with higher protein intake and for those who consistently workout.  Water is vital for flushing out toxins in your body and the transport of nutrients to your cells.  Key things to keep in mind are that when you initially up your water intake you may retain water for a day or two, but then your body will regulate itself and you'll find that the consistent higher intake of water will help you NOT retain water.  Beware that too much water can be dangerous...if you find that you are cramping or constantly thirsty despite drinking tons of water or light headed, you may be consuming too much water and flushing minerals and electrolytes from your body.  If that's the case lower your intake and consider supplementing with some sodium and other minerals.

Today’s Diet Challenge
Eat some Fish. Each day of the week we have a set diet challenge that is meant to get you thinking about your food intake and help you get out of the "grind" of eating the same things all the time.  Variety in food intake is vital for nutritional and mental reasons.  Try some fish today!  Tuna, Salmon and Tilapia are some of the fish I eat.

Today’s Personal Challenge
 Text a lot Tuesday...why you ask. It's a fun way to stay connected, encourage others and to quickly let someone know you are thinking about them. STRIVE to text a lot today.  My goal is to scroll down through my text list and say HI! to some of those LOWER ON THE LIST, lol!
That's all for now!! Have fun with this challenge~ We can do it!! -Your BuffMother, Michelle
