As we head into the third week of the Summer Tone Up, it's a perfect time to revisit the goals you've written down in your journal. One of my goals for this challenge is to prioritize balance.

It's so important to take the recovery time you need, especially when you're workin' as hard as you are! Incorporate these tips into your routine for a lil' R&R!
Fresh air does wonders for your body and your state of mind! 🤗✨ There's nothing I love more than going for a long walk on the beach with Brian & Winston. It instantly lifts my mood and it's a metabolism booster too!

Run a bath tonight and add a little rosemary or lavender essential oil with some Epsom salt...it feels amazing after a tough workout or a long day! It's the perfect way to recover, reset, and get glow-y.
Nutrition On Point!
As a member, you know first hand that nutrition plays a huge role in recovery! Foods like dark leafy greens (think kale, spinach, chard) and spices like ginger, cayenne, and turmeric contain powerful antioxidants that help your muscles repair and fight inflammation! That's one of the reasons why we love the morning Meta-D and Bombshell Spell! The ginger and cayenne is amazing for you ✨
Practicing balance and slowing down is essential for reaching your goals and showing your body the love it deserves. When you show your body love, it'll love you back!
