Forget waist trainer.

There are smarter ways to get a tiny waist.

And the 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge is one of them.

Stay put, tie your shoes and get ready.

DON’T Do Sit-Ups

Sit-ups might be good for your abs. But they’re bad for your back because they put too much pressure on your spine.

The U.S. Army is ditching sit-ups. Tony Horton is ditching sit-ups. Now you can too.

DO Planks

Plank is a great core exercise to get a tiny waist. If you’re not exercising often, you may feel overwhelmed by all the workouts and exercises you can do.

Doing planks is a great place to start because having a strong core is the foundation of a strong body.

  • For this 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge: Ditch the sit-ups and do a 30 seconds plank every day.

NO NEGATIVITY

It’s a fact: stress can prevent you from losing weight.

And while you may not be able to control the crazy traffic, jerks, and the annoying pop-up ads… You definitely can reduce your stress level by striving to adopt a “no negativity policy”.

That one ain’t going to be easy. But the rewards are endless.

TIP: Anger comes from entitlement. When angry, ask yourself: Does the world owe me this?

It’s a tricky question… Because the answer will always be the same. Whatever it takes baby!

YES TO GRATITUDE

If you’re looking for a tiny habit that can help you get a tiny waist. Practicing gratitude on a daily basis is one of them.

Research has shown that gratitude reduces stress. And everything that makes you feel good, will help you look good.

  • For this 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge: Remind yourself of all the great things you do have whenever you feel anger rising up or hear yourself saying something negative.

DON’T EAT FAST FOOD

What you’re holding in your hand isn’t a burger. It’s a tiny waist killer.

It somehow looks like a burger, but in reality… it’s a bunch of chemical fillers and preservatives. Yuck.

DO EAT MORE OFTEN

When you starve yourself for hours, you may end up binging for hours.

The bigger the meal, the bigger the crash. And how do we fight a crash? By consuming more sugar. It’s a downward spiral.

The solution? Eat smaller meals and snack more often.

  • For this 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge: Eat 3 small meals and 3 snacks. Don’t go for more than 3 hours without eating something.

NO SODA

Are you one of those folks who can’t stand having a meal without a few sips of pop?

If so, you might find it encouraging to read to story of Marie Francis Barry who dropped 100 pounds after quitting soda.

Or these 7 New Yorkers who quit soda and lost 53 pounds in just 2 months.

DRINK WATER

You’ve heard it often enough.

BUT maybe you haven’t got around it.

Now’s the time.

  • For this 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge: Switch soda for water.

NO NETFLIX*

LOL. You didn’t think I was serious, did you?

Actually, I am. Sort of…

Want to know a weight loss hack that work? Play games with yourself.

Like allowing yourself to watch TV *only if* you…

WALK 15 MINUTES

Walking doesn’t lead to tiny waist? WRONG.

Walking every day is the most powerful weight loss secret that I know of.

And it all comes down to this: WILLPOWER.

Walking every day increases your willpower.

Sure, weight loss is 80% food and 20% exercise… but food is also the very thing that most of us struggle to control.

A simple way to increase your willpower around food is to start walking every day.

And if you’re anything like me, after you’ve been walking 15 minutes every day for 3 months you may find yourself walking more often, eating healthier, and losing weight without even trying.

7-day

  • For this 7-Day Tiny Waist Challenge: Allow yourself to watch Netflix ONLY if you walked 15 minutes.
