Monday Club 

Weekly support to help you reach your health and fitness goals. 


Monday Club 
Week 3 26/9/22

A. This week I’d like you to focus on your activity levels .

1. Increase your weekly steps by 20%. So if you have been walking an average of 6000 steps a day that increases your target to 7,200. ( if you are measuring your steps by time then walk for 20% longer )

2. Squat challenge . This week I want you to do 20 squats every day. 
Technique: feet shoulder width apart. Squat down to get your bottom almost to a chair and then stand up. All movements are slow. To work harder work even slower . 

B. This week keep logging your food and keep the target weight loss at 1/2 lb per week. 

Tips:
3 meals a day
Close kitchen after dinner
5 a day fruit and veg 
Drink 5 glasses of water daily 
Plan your meals in advance to avoid poor decisions 

Keep at it everyone … it takes time to get eating habits back in to line . 

Remember that we all ‘fall off the wagon ‘ from time to time so don’t write that whole day off. Make the next thing you eat something healthy!

Using your smart phone or similar device record your daily steps. I want you to know what your weekly average steps are. 

Keep at it !

( I’m publishing this on Sunday evenings from now on so you are off and running from first thing each Monday morning )  #healthyeating #fitness #wellness #mindfuleating
