Like the NIke people say, just do it: 45 minutes cardio 4x/week; weights upper and lower body 2x/week; stretching after every cardio and weights session, with a little more stretching night and morning just to keep things working properly.

When she said it was ginger juice and steamed cashew milk (not raw, obviously, but it’s October…), it didn’t sound very good. The server said, “Trust me.” I did. It was heaven in a cup.
