I do have some advice for anyone starting either this challenge or any of Chloe’s other challenges/programs. So far I’ve done two of them (Flat Belly and Summer Shred 2019) with great results. The advice I’m going to give is just that, advice. You can follow it or not, but it’s advice I’m giving based on my experiences.

1. Get workout gloves and other workout “armor” – While doing these workouts, my hands were getting badly damaged. I have eczema on my right hand, which is probably a major factor. I found wearing workout gloves makes it easier to protect them. That and I would sweat so much that I would start slipping on my yoga mat. The gloves keep you from slipping and face planting. If you can get something for your arms/elbows, I would recommend that as well. There are some dry spots on my elbows from the up and down plank, plus other plank positions.

2. Take a break between challenges – The two programs I did, I did them consecutively. Once I finished the Flat Belly Challenge, I did the 2019 Summer Shred Challenge. This was a mistake because of the intensity of the programs. Halfway through the Summer Shred Challenge my body wanted to give up because I was pushing myself too hard. I would recommend taking four days up to a week rest between each challenge. Meaning, do not exercise at all. Let your body recover. If you still feel the need to exercise during this break, do light exercises like walking.

3. Don’t skip stretches – Stretches help your muscles stay loose and makes it easier to exercise. If you skip them, your muscles will strain, which increases the risk of injury. Warm-up are also good to do before workouts because they loosen your muscles and make it easier to do the workouts.

4. Eat before and after each workout – Eat something small before each workout to give you a boost of energy. This helps you put forth maximum effort into your workouts. When you’re exhausted and have no energy, you won’t be able to get the most out of it. I would recommend a handful of nuts or something that is high in protein. Also, eat something after the workout as well. You’ve expended a lot of energy and you need it in order to properly recover. It’s recommended you eat protein and carbs for best results. I like to have a peanut butter (powder) and banana smoothie with 1% milk because it has good carbs and lots of protein in it.

5. Do not have a restrictive diet – Your diet is the most factor in all of this. If you restrict yourself too much, you will definitely lose weight, but you will also be exhausted and possibly lose motivation. Not to mention that restrictive diets also keep you from getting essential nutrients. If you’re on a restrictive diet for medical reasons, then that’s fine. However, if you don’t need to be on a restrictive diet it’s best to just change eating habits and make your diet more balanced. As long as you have a balanced diet, you will see fantastic results. I would say stick to Chloe’s advice and do a 80:20 diet (80% healthy, 20% unhealthy).

6. Don’t focus just on the numbers – When I started my weight loss journey about 2-3 years ago, I weighed 236 lbs (highest I’ve ever weighed was 256 lbs). Most of the weight I’ve lost, I did by just changing my dietary habits and eating better. I was able to get myself down to 155 lbs with very little exercise involved. I didn’t find Chloe until this point and started doing her challenges at the the beginning of May. From her two programs I was able to lose about 10-15 lbs. But it’s not just about the numbers. It’s also how I feel and look. I didn’t get the results I wanted exactly, but I still got results that made me happy and feel better about myself. In other words, don’t worry about the number on the scale not going down. Instead, look at yourself and feel better with the positive changes you’re making.

7. It all takes time – Everyone’s body is different, therefore all of us will react differently to these workouts and diet changes. Some will see immediate results, some won’t. Like I said, I didn’t get the exact results I wanted, but that doesn’t mean I will give up. In just two months, I’ve been able to make positive changes, even if they aren’t that major. Things take time, but you will eventually get to where you want to be. Patience is key to fitness, but the time and effort you put into is worth it because you will just feel so much better about yourself.

8. Scheduling (added 7/1/19) – Scheduling is the most difficult aspect of weight loss. You wonder when should you work out: morning or night? How many days? When should you do your rest days? The simplest answer to all of these is to just make the schedule work best for you and your needs. The schedule that Chloe creates is a guideline, not a strict schedule you have to follow. I personally modified all of Chloe’s schedules to fit the days that would work best for me to work out and which ones to take as rest days. As for “when,” it doesn’t matter honestly. I do my workouts after work when I get home and right before dinner. If you’re more of morning person, then do them then. If you’re more of an evening person, have at it. Just don’t use time as an excuse for not reaching your goals.

9. “Female Problems” (Added 7/1/19 edited 7/4/19) – I wanted to address this particularly because I’ve seen mentions of it on Chloe’s other videos. Ladies, please do not use TOM/Flo/Mother Nature/Whatever you call it as an excuse to not work out. If you’re cramping bad, just do low impact. I know it doesn’t feel pleasant to work out during that time of month, but do not use that as an excuse. Studies have shown that exercising can actually help with proper regulation of periods and make cramping less painful. If you have a medical condition (either related or unrelated to your period) then do what you can. If it’s too painful to do low impact of these exercises, then try something lighter if possible like walking. If you have extreme symptoms like cramping that makes you immobile and have not done so, see a doctor. Fiona MG made a comment below regarding this. I would recommend you read it if you have extreme symptoms during your period as going undiagnosed for a medical problem can negatively impact your life. Either way, do not push yourself or feel guilty if you have a medical condition. As for the ladies who do not have a medical condition, I don’t want you to feel guilty either, but I want to encourage you. For change to happen, you need to put in effort and using every little thing as an excuse will only hinder you. I’m female too, I know what it’s like to workout on your period. It doesn’t feel good, but trust me when I say you feel like you’ve accomplished so much more when you overcome that fatigue and bloating by pushing yourself just a bit.

10. Engaging your core (Added 7/2/19) – I’m adding this one because someone asked about it. Engaging your core means tightening your ab muscles. This is extremely difficult to learn to do. It’s best to practice this when you’re not working out to make it easier to learn how to control it. I found the best way to do this is to have perfect posture. When you stand perfectly straight, you naturally tighten your core a bit this is the feeling you want when exercising. You can tighten them even more when you breath out. Try doing breathing exercises where you tighten your core while breathing out to get use to this feeling. Once you get use to it, you can try the same techniques when working out. Eventually, it’ll become habitual.
