12 Days of Fitness Challenge – Day 7: Silent Night Stretch Routine

You’ve made it through the first half of the challenge and you deserve, scratch that, NEED a rest day. Today, I want you to let your body rest and recover with a rejuvenating stretch routine. Pull out your yoga mat, some relaxing tunes, maybe even light a couple of holiday candles, and give your muscles the TLC they deserve.

It’s Meal Prep Day!

I always prep my meals on Saturday or Sundays to make sure I’m fueling properly throughout my busy workweek. Take a couple hours to prepare some lean protein and whole grains, chop some fresh fruit, cook some vegetables, hard boil some eggs, and prepare healthy snacks for on-the-go. You can find more meal prep tips in this post.
