*My friend Mary posted this awhile ago, it still makes me laugh :)*

Continue with the protein from yesterday and add 1c green veggies with meals & snacks
*Include any and all green vegetables and salads. 3 of the most effective for detoxification and fat loss purposes are cucumbers, celery, and broccoli*

This is something I hadn't heard before. I'm not into smoothies too much- mainly due to fact cleaning blender everyday is a royal PITA. I'm also scared of some drinks I have seen.. Some remind me of a bad hangover from back in the day I had them..YIKES!!
If I have an omelet or something I can throw in some spinach or kale into my eggs, but if anyone has any suggestions as to adding green stuff to breakfast let me know!

*Sweating helps you clear toxins and excess fluid and can be a great starting point for a healthier lymphatic system and a speedier metabolism.*

TODAY'S WORKOUT - A circuit session:
*Today I'd like you to complete at least 15-20 minutes of the below circuit, but you can keep going for up to 30. No more than 30.
Complete all exercises in a row with no more than 10 seconds rest ideally between exercises. After you do the final exercise rest for 10 seconds up to 2 minutes depending on your level of conditioning. These circuits should get you sweating, but should not necessarily 'kill' you.*

-20 dumbbell walking lunges (20 total steps)
-20 push ups on toes or knees
~did these on steps~
-20 full sit ups
~for me this means on a ball~
-20 burpees with hands reach up as you jump (yes, 20!). *If you can't jump, change to just lying down and getting up off the floor.*
~This is an issue for me since getting on and off the floor is a major struggle. I'm thinking Jumping Jacks instead :)
-20 dumbbell bent over rows
-20 alternate lying leg lifts
~again this are standing for me~
-20 (total, not each side) alternate standing dumbbell shoulder presses
- side-brace (45 second each side)
~What is a side brace?? I Had to investigate this- it is basicly a side plank. Again a slight issue, standing abduction exercises work for me!
-20 jumping squats, shooting hands up into the air as you jump. *If you can't jump then do full depth squats with dumbbells instead.*

Repeat until you reach your time max!

Lets be honest here.. 1 round of this at a time is perfectly fine with me. As time goes by perhaps 2 sets and move on from there. I do have floor mats that I will one day put down to cushion my knees and all so I will be able to do more things, but that requires some room. That's a whole different thing!
This is a learning experience for me. Some things I will be able to do and others not quite yet. I'm ok with that. I'm not about to start comparing myself to other people. I can only worry about my own abilities.
