Welcome, Welcome To The 30 Day Curvy Goddess Challenge…

AND YOU ARE IN, Curvy Goddess!

You’ve landed on the Rules and Instructions page for our January 2015 Curvy Goddess 30 Day Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge.

In the past, you may have participated in our insanely popular fitness and weight loss challenges on the Curvy Goddess Facebook Fan Page, but I really wanted to create more of a visual and immersive experience with one another and make it special for you.

So I decided to bring The Curvy Goddess 30 Day Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge to my Curvy Goddess Personal Training website this month.

THANK YOU, Curvy Goddess!! xoxo

So before we get down to the Rules and Instructions of the Curvy Goddess 30 Day Challenge I need to take this opportunity to express to you how grateful I am that you are here. Without you there would be no Curvy Goddess brand. Without your voice this wouldn’t ever happen.

Please always share your voice with me no matter how negative it may be. It’s just feedback or input and I really need it to help create the best programs and services for you in the future.

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND THE REST OF THE DETAILS…

So before starting the Curvy Goddess Fitness and Weight Loss 30-Day Challenge it is important that you read the following details completely.

So WHAT is it?

Well, it’s the Curvy Goddess 30 Day Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge of course.

For the month of January we are going to dedicate our time on ELEVATING through small action steps and crystal clear focus.

So the objective for the Curvy Goddess 30-Day Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge is to give you the support and inspiration you need to start or proceed with your fitness and/or weight loss journey.

personal trainer nyc

This is not about extremes and focusing on making 5, 6, 10 different changes when it comes to health and weight loss. It’s about choosing a couple of things and focusing on doing it well for 30 straight days.

So instead of committing yourself to 2 hours of exercise 5 days during the week, you may choose moving your body for 7 minutes/5 days. I assure you that once you have gotten in the groove you will probably work out longer than 7 minutes.

This will usually take care of the overwhelm issues that you may have had during a weight loss and fitness program.

You are going to erase those thoughts of messing up and making mistakes and focus on creative thoughts of elevating yourself to better health, happiness and a fitter YOU!

Creating health, fitness, and for some, weight loss with a joyful spirit. And if you’re not at joy right now then you will have all of your fellow Curvy Sisters get you to JOY!

So please share with your Curvy Friends and family

Choose at least one from the Joyful Spirit List section below. Now this is very important. I want to help you get to a place of joy and peace. We’re combating stress with joy and peace. Stress sabotages our dreams and goals so don’t skip this part.

[ez_box title=”Step 7: Take Body Circumference Measurements Before Day 1 Begins” color=”grey”]

Your body circumference measurements are the most important measurements you can take when trying to lose weight.

While your overall bodyweight will give you an extremely general indicator of your progress, it doesn’t tell you what kind of weight you’re losing.

If you’re watching your diet, doing your cardio, and weight training you’ll be shrinking a lot but your weight won’t always indicate what’s happening to your body.

Tracking your body circumference measurements allows you to see if you’re losing the right kind of weight and if your current diet is helping you burn body fat.

To measure your body circumference, buy a tape measure and then use them to measure the following areas:

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Width of shoulder – Widest part of the shoulder round

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Above Chest – Underneath the armpits

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Mid Chest – Measure around the chest right at the nipple line, but don’t pull the tape too tight.

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Ribs – Underneath chest

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Waist – Smallest area in the middle

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Abdomen – The pooch area three inches to four inches below belly button

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Hips – Widest area of the hips

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Thighs – Widest area of the thighs

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Calves – Widest area of the calves

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Upper Arm – Widest area of the arm above the elbow

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Forearms – Widest area of the arm below the elbow

weight loss personal trainer nyc

Neck – Widest area

I would like to TRY to do the no carbs after 4:00 also but my working schedule is really kind of crazy right now.

    I am super excited about the JOYFUL SPIRIT portion because I haven’t had much joy in a long time so i want to embrace this fully! I am choosing to DE-CLUTTER MY HOME AND ALL OF MY SURROUNDING SO THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN MOVE FREELY THROUGH MY HOME AND MY LIFE, I am going to dance with my 8 year old little boy in the evenings, I am going to consistently PRAY PRAY AND MEDITATE AND PRAY DAILY, and I already get a mani every three weeks and that is the only thing that I honestly totally devote to ME.

    God bless!

    • Hey Trolan! Welcome to the Curvy Goddess Fitness and Weight Loss Challenge. The reason why I created this kind of challenge is to create small wins and victories and to reframe fitness for the Curvy Goddesses. Most of us have been overwhelmed with the things given to us to lose weight and be fit. So the challenge is to transition into a new fit and healthy lifestyle without feeling overwhelmed and defeated. So I emphasize choosing a maximum of 3 from the fitness and healthy eating list. But if you’d like to try all on the list I am not stopping you.

      xoxo,
      Diane aka The Curvy Goddess®
