Day 15 Wellness Action: Create a Meal Plan
A lot of us have a love/hate relationships with meal plans. We love them because they tell us what to eat without us having to think about it, but we hate them because they sometimes miss our favorite dishes.
Fear not! This meal plan is a guide to help you incorporate all we’ve been learning about eating healthy. You can move meals around or substitute with what’s available to you or any other changes you need to make to fit your schedule and lifestyle.
You will notice we do not focus on calories. Rather our focus is on eating wholesome, unprocessed or minimally processed meals that fuel your body. But you do have to watch your portion sizes. Here’s a guide to planning the perfect plate.
A meal plan is only half the battle. Now you have to make a list of the food items you’ll need to follow the meal plan, go shopping for them and prepare what can be done ahead of time. That’s your task today and through the weekend.

Day 15 Workout: Boxing Jump Rope Intervals
Boxers are arguably the fittest athletes around; they’re lean, strong and are as tough as they look. And while nobody expects you to step into the ring to get fit, you can emulate a boxer by doing some jump rope intervals.
For this workout jump rope for three minutes and then rest for one – repeat three times. Go as fast as you can but make sure you don’t tire yourself out too quickly and end up unable to complete the workout.
