Workout: Today it's time to pull back a bit and allow your body the rest it needs to recharge itself. A rest day is just as important as a workout, and you deserve some time away from the gym.
With that said, it's important to remember that a day of rest doesn't always have to equal inactivity. Opt for some light cardio like a walk around the neighborhood, which will help get the blood flowing to tired muscles. If that doesn't appeal to you, give your body the stretch it needs by flowing through a restorative yoga sequence or just enjoy a relaxing night in.
Recipe: Relax with a cocktail! For anyone craving a fruity cocktail minus the calories, our variation of a classic tequila bramble makes a great choice. The recipe doesn't contain any store-bought mixers or fruit juice but relies on fresh, seasonal belly-fat-blasting blackberries and a hint of agave syrup for its sweetness. If you want to enjoy your cocktail alcohol-free, you can omit the tequila and substitute the blackberry liqueur with a splash of berry juice concentrate.
