I believe that applying one small change a week results in many big changes over time. I also believe that these changes last longer than making one big change all at once. For one thing, you can fool your mind and body into not really realizing that a change has been made when you apply a single little change at a time. Because of this, I am going to start supplying one fitness change and one nutrition change a week for everyone to try. These changes will be EASY. So easy that you might get a little annoyed and want me to post an even bigger challenge.
Just trust me on this. Don’t try and add more on yourself. Just add my little alterations or additions. You’ll see changes sooner than you would’ve imagined if you stick with them.
For todays Fit Tip Friday:
FITNESS: Do an extra 5 minutes of cardio.
*This could be any type of cardio: running, biking, swimming, surfing, dancing… etc. If you choose to walk, do an extra 10 minutes of cardio.
NUTRITION: Have a smoothie for breakfast.
*In my opinion, smoothies are some of the healthiest breakfasts’ that you could have. You can pack in so many good for you foods, such as kale, spinach, chlorella, and fruit into one drink! My favorite is either the

These are two very easy changes that can be implemented into your daily life! They might not seem like big changes, but a week of 5 extra cardio minutes is an extra 35 minutes of cardio per week. That means about an extra 350 calories (depending on your speed and choice of cardio) that you’ve burned that week! About 3500 calories burned is required to get rid of 1 pound of fat. That means after a month of just adding in 5 minutes of extra cardio a day, you will have lost about half a pound! From that ONE SMALL LITTLE CHANGE.
Now imagine how each weeks small changes will add up after just seeing that one change in action…
Try these out and lets start making some changes to our lives!
