White is the new Black

On Day 4 you should already be doing your pushups, jumping jacks or jump rope daily. You should be coloring you plate, and starting today we are going to color our plates without red meat. Yes you heard me, NO RED MEAT.  This includes no bacon no red meat no salami, no sausage -NADA! But the good news is you will eat plenty of fish, chicken, grains vegetables, and fruit. Track how you feel, trust me your body will thank you.
Just remember Red meat is high in saturated fat & cholesterol, it also has been associated with chronic inflammation and increasing cancer risk. 

Our addition to our current exercises, we are going to add on Planks.
Planks- Positioning yourself correctly:


Lie face down, Prop yourself up onto your toes and forearms; place your elbows and forearms underneath your chest. Make sure to maintain a flat back and do not allow your hips to sag towards the ground. If your can’t prop yourself up correctly on your toes, then drop your knees, and keep you back straight. Hold your pose for 10 seconds. Adding an additional 10 seconds every day.
