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.
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
Go through each step to prepare for the starting date of Thursday, January 1, 2015.
REMEMBER: This is a live event so you and your fellow Curvy Sisters will all start on the same day, Thursday, January 1.
[ez_box title=”STEP 1 – Fitness and Healthy Eating” color=”grey”]
Choose one or two things from the fitness and healthy eating list section that will help you achieve your fitness and/or weight loss goals or at least get you started on your way.
Drink 8 glasses of water
Stop eating after 7pm
Stop eating carbs after 4pm
Eat green leafy vegetables twice/day
Go to the gym for 7 min/5 days per wk
Stick with whole foods and no processed foods
No fast food what-so-ever
Go gluten free
No sugar and no artificial sweetener
I’d rather you stick to the examples above or something like the above rather than choosing a challenges that are numbers related, like lose 2 pounds a week or consume 1500 calories a day or eat less than 150 carb grams per day.
[ez_box title=”STEP 2 – Joyful Spirit” color=”grey”]
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.
Manicure and pedicure
Prayer or Meditation
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) – I will explain later if you don’t know what this is.
Listening to soothing music
Being with nature
Spending time with a positive friend
Declutter your surroundings
REMEMBER: Do not choose more than 3 fitness and health focuses during the challenge. On the Joyful Spirit list, you can do any of them, any time, any day!

[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:
Width of shoulder – Widest part of the shoulder round
Above Chest – Underneath the armpits
Mid Chest – Measure around the chest right at the nipple line, but don’t pull the tape too tight.
Ribs – Underneath chest
Waist – Smallest area in the middle
Abdomen – The pooch area three inches to four inches below belly button
Hips – Widest area of the hips
Thighs – Widest area of the thighs
Calves – Widest area of the calves
Upper Arm – Widest area of the arm above the elbow
Forearms – Widest area of the arm below the elbow
Neck – Widest area
SHARE, SHARE, SHARE…
