EVERY morning when you wake up and your feet hit the ground this week, you’re going to:
- Drink a big glass of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Wait until it settles, then perform:
- 20 squats
- 20 push-ups
- 20 jumping jacks
- Stretch for 2-5 minutes
It’s a great way to get your day started, blood flowing, and wake up your muscles and mind!
Are you IN for this week’s Groundhog Day challenge?

Chilled Eggplant & Sun-dried Tomato Salad (serves 2)
1 large eggplant, sliced into 1" thick pieces
4 ounces sun dried tomatoes in olive oil
¼ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 cups wild arugula, washed and spun dry
¼ red onion, sliced thinly
Preheat oven to broil. Place eggplant on wire rack and cook 10-15 minutes flipping every few minutes and keeping a close eye to prevent charring (will be on the crisp side.)
Remove from oven and let sit until cool enough to handle. Place tomato (if using sun-dried; if using fresh, wait until right before serving to add), basil and oil in food processor.
Whiz until coarsely chopped. Place in glass or ceramic bowl and stir eggplant in and cover tightly. Chill overnight; remove from refrigerator 10 - 15 minutes before serving on top of arugula, with onion on top of that as a starter or add your favorite protein to create a full meal.
