Hey guys! Welcome to fitness 101 the page all about living healthy and fit lifestyles all while trying to keep up with that busy class schedule and not break the bank. For my first post I decided that I wanted to write a quick review for a weight loss challenge I recently did that was super simple to do on a busy schedule and also didn’t cost to much money or take too much time to meal prep. It is called the “Fit Girls Guide, the 28 day jump start.” It is an eBook that helps individuals begin their weight loss journey. This is a must for people who are just starting out or maybe want to ease their way back into the healthy lifestyle!
The first section in the book is the living section! It goes over all the basics of living a healthier lifestyle such as, drinking a gallon of water each day, getting the right amount of sleep, and making sure you continue to reward yourself throughout the challenge to keep yourself motivated! The book is a super easy read and keeps you interested because they talk in a real fun uplifting voice, the also incorporate real fun pictures!
The second part of the book is the eating section! It goes over every detail about the eating you will be doing during the challenge. Telling you what it is you should stay away from, like alcohol, soda, and bad sugars. It also gives you a full list of the different foods you are allowed to have on the diets. One thing I especially liked about this program was that they had substitutes for everything. It gives options for vegans, vegetarians, and gluten free options.
The third section is the fitness section. They go over all the different workouts you will be doing each day. They also provide a picture of each workout as well as a description for how to do each one.(As shown above) I really liked the fact they did this because I think it is very helpful for beginners who would not know how to do the workout just from the name provided. The workouts were super easy and fun but they really do work. They also provide a lot of fun ways to warm up or to burn some extra calories like throwing on some music and just dancing around.
The final section is the actual challenge. Here they provide full grocery lists, for each week, as well as a menu for what you will be eating that week.(An example menu provided above) Basically your breakfast and lunch stay the same for all 7 days and then you alternate between two different meals for dinner. Again for each thing they provide substitutes weather or not you do not like something, or you have an allergy or do not eat a certain thing. This helped me out a lot because like I previously stated i am a very picky eater. The meals were very simple to make and the grocery lists were not expensive at all. Honestly I saved more money doing this diet because regularly I’m so busy I’m constantly buying bad food and spending so much money on it.
Overall I lost 15 pounds while doing this program and it was so easy to do I never felt hungry or like I was missing out on eating while doing it. I highly recommend it to someone who is just starting out or someone who just needs to kick start themselves back into the healthy lifestyle. I hope you guys enjoyed this review. Let me know if you had any questions or how you liked it if you have tried it!
