Cooking Tip: For all you pomegranate lovers... Chop the fruit in half. Take a tablespoon and hit the back of the chopped fruit. The fruit will fall out in no time. Be sure to do it over a chopping board or a dark surface as the juice of the fruit can stain.
Training Tip: Rest days are important too. Now that it's the new year and you probably have a lot of motivation to achieve your health and fitness goals it's important to remember that rest days are vital to success. These days give your muscles a chance to repair and recover. Don't forget to rest, get plenty of sleep and hydrate on these days!
Mindset Tip: Set yourself the task of achieving the most important thing for that day everyday. If you can achieve this you will have had 365 important things at least achieved in that year. Crazy right? Starts with one task..
