Yes, it is week 2 of Best Body Bootcamp. I am so proud of myself for sticking with and finishing my first week. Now on to week 2. So for my two personal goals I have decided to change them from last week, yes I will continue to drink 8 glasses of water per day and try not to drink pop. But the new goals: 1. Drink 1 cup of green tea per day. The benefits of green tea are amazing:
More than a decade’s worth of research about green tea’s health benefits — particularly its potential to fight cancer and heart disease — has been more than intriguing, as have limited studies about green tea’s role in lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing diabetes and stroke, and staving off dementia.

Since I have cancer, cholesterol, diabetes and stroke in my family history I must try to do all that I can to help ward these things off.
Goal number 2: Eat 2 pieces of fruit per day. Yep, fruit. I am a terrible fruit eater. I have been that way since I was a kid. My mother eats fruit all the time but it is not something that I am a fan of at all. So I am taking this chance to help change my eating habits.
So how did I do today?
