It's almost 2pm and all I've had is some trail mix and water... smh... I will be having a couple of eggs with 2 small potatoes and some cauliflower, my vitamins and more water... then I will be hitting the Day#17 Insanity. Lots of luck needed!!! (Being that only one real l meal will be had LATE in the day...)

A protein shake after the work out and some grilled chicken with wild rice and asparagus for dinner. =)

Final Health Tip in the 7 Day Series:

7. Coffee

Sip It!
Coffee is a well-known pick-me-up, but a cup of joe can perk up skin too. "It has antioxidants to help protect skin from sun damage and help prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and sagging," according to Dr. Murad. Aim for no more than one 8-ounce cup a day, as coffee in large doses can dehydrate skin. Another way to enjoy more of the buzzy beans: Use finely ground coffee as part of a spice rub for steak or beef.

Apply It!
The caffeine that's in coffee is a topical diuretic (it pulls water out of skin), so it can help depuff eyelids and is often used as an ingredient in cellulite creams because it temporarily gives skin a smoother appearance, says Dr. Murad. Douglas recommends using cooled coffee grounds as a scrub on thighs and buttocks, where cellulite tends to appear.

"The scrubbing stimulates circulation, and the caffeine in the grounds has a temporary shrinking effect on the cellulite," she explains. A coffee rinse can also deepen and richen the hue of brown hair, says Rhys. Brew 2 cups of strong coffee and allow it to cool. In the shower, shampoo, squeeze out excess moisture, pour the cooled coffee over strands, and put on a shower cap. At the end of your shower, rinse, then condition as usual.
