Hi gorgeous! Feelin’ sore? OK us too! That’s our bodies getting results from the Summer Tone Up workouts! You may even feel some tightness a day or two after a workout. That’s delayed onset muscle soreness, aka DOMS, a great reminder to prioritize recovery and self-care. Make sure to slot in some extra foam rolling and stretching this week. Getting in some protein 30 minutes after your workout is essential for fueling those gorgeous muscles, too!
Whatever your plans are this holiday weekend, we want you to continue feeling great and keeping it Lean, Clean, ‘N Green! We can all still welcome summer together with a restorative staycation and our Summer Tone Up workouts! Relax outside (if you can safely!) and enjoy a podcast or book while sippin’ on a Tone It Up smoothie. Week 3… we got this!

What We’re Cookin’ This Week
One question we’re always asked is “what do I do if I slip up?” If you get off track for a meal, don’t let it get you down. It happens to all of us, so please don’t be hard on yourself! The best way to recover is with your next meal.
