Have you got the PecsFactor?Fitness for Winners 30 Day Challenge to Change your Body!Join me in my New Year challenge...

Updated on November 15, 2014

Change your body!

Have YOU got the Pecs Factor? Your Invitation to change your body!

Hi fellow hubbers.

Did you know it takes 4 weeks to change your body and 8 weeks for your friends to notice changes in your body!

You won't change it looking at Facebook!

You won't change it watching tv!

Only YOU can the way YOU look and feel!

Boost your confidence and be here on the 1st January 2015!!!

I have been involved with Kickboxing for a few years now and always thought my fitness level was good but as my old school reports used to say 'could do better'! My weekly routine consisted of 2 x gym visits for 1 1/2 hours each and 2 kickboxing training sessions 2 x 1 hour per week. As well as this I would do a few sit up's, press up's etc but nothing too hectic. I am carefull what I eat and am on a pretty good diet.

4 weeks ago I sat down and devised a 30 day challenge. The challenge consisted of a quick hit workout on an evening with the emphesis on toning up.

The challenge costs no gym expense or membership and no fancy equipment (though I do use a dumb-bell).

My challenge uses 2 kitchen chairs and 1x 20kg dumb-bell. I do my challenge on a stone floor or on my decking so a small mat is also usefull..That's it!

Here is my challenge:

5 minute warm up and stretching.

25 x Press ups (down to the chest!)

25 x dumb-bell curls using both arms at the same time (i.e. holding the dumb-bell at the ends)

25 x Sit up's

25 X Chair presses (place the chairs approx 1.5 - 2.00 feet apart).

This has to be done 3 times with a 30 second break between each cycle.

The challenge has to be carried out every evening with 1 day off (mine is Sunday).

The challenge takes approx 20 minutes.

What I do suggest is if you do start the challenge and you haven't exercised for a while, prepare one week before the challenge by doing a few press up's, sit up's and chair presses. Build yourself up then set a date to start. If you want you can join me on my next 30 day challenge starting January 1st 2015. Leave a comment in the comment box below. I will gladly help you.

The first few days will be tough, your arms, stomach and chest will ache but believe me after a few days you will be looking forward to doing your nightly exercise cycle once the aches have faded.

As soon as this 30 day challenge ends I will be taking 3 days away from it then starting all over again. This time though my challenge will be the same as above but instead of 3 x 25 cycles I will be doing 4 x 25 cycles.

If you think you can't do it..YOU CAN!!

If you're getting it tough..DON'T QUIT!!

If you're not seeing results..YOU WILL!!

When you bump into your family and friends and they comment on how great you look you know the challenge was worth it!

When you go on holidays and wearing that 'makes you look great T-Shirt or dress' you'll walk around with a big smile on your face and full of confidence.

Please feel join me on my 2015 challenge starting 1st January 2015

4 Fatty Foods for a Thinner Waistline!

It's important to have
healthy fats in your diet to keep your blood sugar under control,
your hormones balanced and avoid cravings. These 'fatty' foods will
actually help you get leaner.

1. Dark Chocolate
One or two small squares of dark chocolate (over 75%) can satisfy
sweet cravings and will not send your blood sugar levels through
the roof.
Dark chocolate is plentiful in anti-oxidants and has been shown
to lower blood pressure along with many other health benefits.

2. Coconut Milk, & Oil
Coconut flour and oil (and milk) contain lauric acid which is a
powerful nutrient for your immune system. It contains a healthy
fat which your body can easily use for energy.
Coconut oil is also good for cooking with at high temperatures,
unlike many other oils.

3. Real Butter
Real 100% butter is not only smooth and delicious, but is
full of healthy nutrients and does not need to be excluded from
your diet.
Grass fed butter has been shown to have anti-cancer properties,
helps fight inflammation, balances hormones and helps satisfy your
appetite. By the way,
margarines are not butter!

4. Whole Eggs
Whole (organic if you can) eggs are not only a great source of
protein but they are a great source of vitamins, minerals and
I love (either for breakfast or lunch) scrambled eggs with diced
crab meat and herbs. Delicious, healthy and easy to make.
I'll post that recipe to you soon!

There we have it. Four foods that are considered to be 'fatty' but
are healthy for us.

Happy eating fellow hubbers!
