January is the perfect time to hit the “reset” button on your old habits as you start to create new ones. So let’s begin a 10 in 10 challenge. Every day for the 10 days, we’re going to focus on a lifestyle habit….that’s a week and a half of endless opportunities to clean up your lifestyle.

Don’t worry…we’re going to take the challenge one day at a time, and build each new habit upon the next one, until you create a doable, realistic new way of eating, moving and living.

Today’s 10 in 10 tip will not only help you burn more calories throughout the day, but will strengthen your heart and bones.

Plus, I’ll give you an entire week’s worth of exercise routines.

 Lift Weights To Lose Weight

Screenshot 2015-01-05 11.40.58It’s a fact — the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn throughout the day.

Plus, it’s good for your heart. Lean, fit bodies have a lower rate of heart disease. Strength training helps you lose visceral fat (fat around the abdomen that surrounds the body’s internal organs) — the most dangerous type when it comes to cardiovascular health.

And an added bonus, regular strength training builds strong bones.

So for the next ten days, practice weight lifting. Strength training doesn’t have to mean “weight lifting.” Dumbbells are classic, but you can sculpt and tone your way to a new body using tubing, kettlebells, or even your own body weight.
