The Benefits of Mixing Up Your Workout Routine

Earlier in the Challenge, we focused on creating and implementing a daily routine to build healthy habits. Now that you’ve gotten into the habit of getting regular exercise, it’s important to know that there are numerous benefits to mixing up your workout routine. Read on to learn more.
This challenge has definitely taught me how to have a healthier lifestyle. I have felt so great over the last couple of weeks and without the foods I always thought I needed. I feel much better about myself and my energy level is definitely better. I never knew how much fatty/bad foods I was consuming on a daily basis, and now thanks to this Challenge, I can definitely say that my body feels so much better every day and at the gym. At first it was weird and I felt very sluggish, but I guess that was just my body not used to not eating the sugary foods I was eating on a daily basis. I have also noticed that my body feels so much better after the gym and I am no longer cramping like I was before. Even though I will not fully remain as loyal as I was in this Challenge to all the food groups, I did get a better sense of eating better and will eat well for most of my daily diet. I plan on trying to incorporate a diet where I eat mostly well but maybe 3-4 of my meals could be my “cheat meals". Priscilla Montes

I am very thankful that I undertook this experience. I lost 16 lbs total - which was 6 more than I even intended to lose - and am down almost two full waist sizes. The recipes were great, and I appreciate that I was able to tailor the diet to fit my lifestyle and daily grind. I am definitely hanging onto the recipe guide, and will continue to cook well beyond the end of this challenge. I've also learned that I can live without soda, a ton of carbs, etc. Most of all, I like the way I look today much better than I did 5 weeks ago. I hope to continue this lifestyle as much as I can moving forward.
