You should be aiming to get at least 64 ounces or 8 cups of water a day! It feels great to get the recommended amount and flush out your system. And your skin will thank you!
For breakfast, I went with oatmeal topped with pecans, dried cranberries and cinnamon. I tried to mix it up while still getting a serving of fruit but I wasn’t craving any fresh fruit. I always try to get a couple servings throughout the day though so I added an apple to my lunch.
The Easy Stir Fry is something I make a lot. You can use any veggies you have on hand. Sometimes I add cucumber, yellow squash, zucchini, asparagus — feel free to add your favorites!
For my exercise, I continued the Five Day Plan. This time doing the second day’s reps. I also ran 1.5 miles outside, but it was too cold to continue.
Once again, I used my 10 lb free weights instead of 5 lb except for the reverse fly. For explanations of the movements, click the link above. Try your best to stay in form while doing each rep and remember to stretch afterwards and rehydrate!
