    Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this every day, when you check your sparkpage:

    Tone up—without leaving the comfort of your bed! Before getting out of bed each morning, spend just a few minutes doing exercises (or stretches). The softer surface of a mattress forces your muscles to work harder, for stability and balance. Try hip raises (bridges), bicycle-abs, the clam, side-twists (while sitting up, maybe add arm circles to that one). Don’t forget stretches, too. A great one would be pulling your knees towards your chest (good for sciatica). We’ll call it---Fitness for Lazy Days! emoticon emoticon

    Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this everyday—when you check your sparkpage:

    “Get Up & Move”—at least once an hour. Studies show that hours of inactivity change the way your body processes glucose & fat. Continuous sitting causes metabolic changes that increase blood sugar levels & decrease the amount of fat used for fuel. Both then cause an increase in fat storage—not what you want to happen! Let’s “Get Up & Move” throughout this 5% Challenge!! We can do this, my friends! emoticon emoticon

    Sharing another little tid-bit I read (in Womans World Magazine):

    Drinking tomato juice is an easy, convenient, inexpensive way to get lycopene, selenium, and Vitamins A & C into your diet. Tomatoes contain many powerful compounds, and the bottled or canned juice, which is made from cooked tomatoes, makes these compounds more readibly absorbed in our bodies. Plus the thickness of the juice is very satisfying & makes you feel full.

    Hint: Champions, if you are doing the Wk #4 Challenge - EAT A RAINBOW, think RED . . . check! emoticon emoticon
