Now that you’ve survived Day 1, it’s time for Day 2!
|Wake Up||8 oz of water|
|Breakfast||Oatmeal with a variety of toppings OR 2 pieces of whole wheat toast topped with a nut butter of your choosing and a side of fruit (apple orange or banana)||8 oz of water|
|Morning||8 oz of water before lunch (I always keep a water bottle handy)|
|Lunch||Leftover Roasted Spaghetti Squash with a side of steamed broccoli||8 oz of water|
|Afternoon||If you're hungry any time throughout the day have an apple or celery with 2 Tbsp of nut butter (I like almond or peanut butter)||8 oz of water before dinner|
|Dinner||Black Beans and Rice from My Whole Food Life. It makes several servings so feel free to cut the recipe in half (it should still give you plenty for two and lunch tomorrow)|
|Exercise||At least 16 oz of water after exercise to rehydrate|
The Black Beans and Rice for dinner were delicious! I recommend leaving a little extra liquid in the dish so the rice can absorb it for more flavor. Yum! I didn’t have any brown rice on hand so I used white rice. You could also sub quinoa for the rice in this dish as well.
For my workout of the day I did some weight lifting. You may recall the Five Day Workout Plan I shared back in July. I’ve decided to start doing more of those exercises so I did the first day’s plan.
I upped the weights to 10lb dumb bells. It was killer! I am so sore today. This workout can be done in 15 minutes! If you don’t have free weights feel free to use water bottles or cans of food — anything to give you a little resistance. Just make sure to maintain your form for every rep and push through! And stretch well afterwards!
