Focus: Strength Training 
This week you're doing the same workout as last week, but with an added challenge: More weight. also google  to learn more about fiber (how exciting!) and practice a little meditation. Now, don't freak out--all you need is a few minutes of quiet time. You'll be so glad you tried it!
