On Sunday night, head back to the blog to see next week's schedule so you can plan your workouts and healthy meals for the entire week. Planning out your healthy lifestyle is super important, and we've got you covered!
Now for your special Weekend Challenge!!
This weekend we want you to set an hour to love your body!!! Either on Saturday or Sunday, to pamper, relax and enjoy some YOU time! Take a Bubble Bath, schedule an hour massage, indulge in a mani, get a facial or do your favorite, at home DIY scrub! Whatever you decide on, make it special! Take time to light some candles, turn on some soothing tunes (we love Angus & Julia station on Pandora or 'Chill') and focus on you.
Need an easy DIY option? Try our sweet & salty body scrub!
We love to make this for smooth, exfoliated skin. It also brings blood-flow to your skin, bringing more nutrients to it ♡
TIP: This scrub also makes an awesome gift to treat your girlfriends! Spoon into small glass jars, add a name tag and some ribbon for a personalized touch!
We can't wait to see what you girls decide on to pamper yourself this weekend! It's so important to reward your body with a little R&R ~ it'll help you focus on your goals for the week to come too!
