Are you up to the challenge?
Step 1 - Warm-Up

Step 2 – The Workout

WEEKLY DIET HINTS & TIPS
Q. I'm not eating much but the scales won't move?
A. The scales alone are a terrible measure of your weight loss journey, everything can effect them, that poo you haven't had yet, the amount of water you retain, had a bad night sleep last night? Did you have a high salt meal last night? Did you have a lot of carbs yesterday? Are you stressed at the moment?
All those things can affect it but only short term - if you are truly in a calorie deficit, the scales will get to a tipping point where the amount of fat you are losing is outweighing the amount of water you can retain. if you haven't seen the scales move at all in 2 weeks then you are still eating to much. so cut your calories down again and get the scales moving.
