How many people do you know right now who are trying to get fit and lose weight? Are they succeeding?
If statistics are any measure, chances are they are not. They may be trying the latest fad diet or are killing themselves exercising on a trendy new piece of fitness equipment without any signs of progress.
Why are they not losing weight? Why are they failing? There could be many reasons, but the most common one is using an incomplete strategy. Many women choose to go on a new diet, but do not realize that if they really want to get into shape they are going to have to exercise. And, of course, there are those people who do the reverse. They exercise, but do not change their eating habits. Unfortunately, both systems are doomed.
What if there was a simple easy to follow method to getting fit, a system that left no room for guessing? The 30 Days of Change Challenge is just such a program. It is a day to day guide that will show you everything you need to do on your journey.

For the 30 Days of Change Challenge, there are six small meals a day but you don’t have to eat if you don’t feel hungry. Snacks are optional, too. You can scale the amounts provided up or down depending on how much you feel you need but try not to go overboard by drastically increasing or reducing the portions.
This program is designed to change your eating and exercise habits as well as the way you look and feel – in a month. The program requires consistency and dedication no matter how tired or busy you are.
Each day consists of a sample meal plan for the day, cardio and core workouts. The meal plan is designed to satisfy all your needs and provide you with the fuel to work out throughout the day.
There are six small meals a day but you don’t have to eat if you don’t feel hungry. Snacks are optional, too. You can scale the amounts provided up or down depending on how much you feel you need but try not to go overboard by drastically increasing or reducing the portions. You can always replace items and mix and match depending on your preferences e.g. replace beans with chicken and vice versa, choose whole-wheat or whole grain wraps or bread. Unless specified otherwise use whole eggs or keep one yolk in three when making omelets. You can keep the meal plan as is and follow it or you can use it as a guideline – it’s up to you.
Whenever the quantity of something isn’t specified like with green beans, tomatoes and mushrooms, for example, that means the quantity isn’t limited. Also, try to avoid buying any sweets or salty snacks during the 30 days of the program or drink any alcohol.
Almost every workout in the program consists of two parts: cardio and bodyweight training. You can perform each separately or one after another depending on your schedule.
There are no rest days in the 30 Days Of Change but some days are easier than others to let you recover for the upcoming day or after a particularly difficult one. Don’t be afraid if it feels hard – it’s supposed to. If you feel that you can’t follow through anymore, drop down a level. If you find it difficult to train at the beginner level – halve the amounts of reps per exercise and continue, don’t skip days. You can jump from one fitness level to another at any point during the program.
If you suffer from back pain or had knee injuries take care while performing running. You can pick your own type of cardio: cycling (double the distance), swimming, rowing or skiing – as long as you keep the time. The more changes you make to the program the less likely you are to stick with it so try to follow it as is as much as possible. If you can’t perform push-ups or push-up like exercises perform them with your knees touching the floor but don’t skip the exercise. In one instance you’ll need a ball – you can use any ball or even a pillow, get creative. This program is nearly equipment free but you’ll need to be able to go for a walk or a run outside. In several cases you’ll be required to have a jump rope so borrow or buy one unless you think you can pretend-jump rope which is also an option. It’s ok to improvise and use what you have at hand. Different daily workouts will ensure that your body doesn’t adapt to the same routine so you’ll see progress a lot sooner than with any other program.
