Hello there, today is your rest day! There is no set workout, and eating wise, make sure you try to eat raw foods and good portions.

I’d like to give you a recordation for a book to read called Food Rules by Micheal Pollan. It is a great book that gives you tips on staying on the right path, what is really in your food, and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Either go check it out at your local library, or get it on your iPad or nook. If neither of these things are available to you i recommend reading Kimberly Snyders blog (link can be found in previous blog post.)

Enjoy your rest day, and fill your brain with new information!
