You should finish your cardio workout for today as soon as possible and then relax until tomorrow's back and biceps workout.
Today, I'm going to talk to you about meat - more specifically, the fat content of meat.
Congratulations on coming back for Day 2 of the Lean Body Challenge.
We won't be doing any cardio today, but we will be doing resistance training for the chest, shoulders, and triceps.

Beefing Up Your Diet
Personally, I favor lean meats such as:
You can occasionally include some red meat in your diet as long as you keep it lean. Both eye round and top round contains 4.2 grams of fat, so they are the best beef cuts to choose from. Round-tip is slightly higher in fat - coming in at 5.9 grams of fat, and top sirloin is slightly higher at 6.1 grams total.
All of these cuts, oddly enough, pack less fat than a chicken thigh that has 9.2 grams of fat. Stick with chicken breast, turkey breast, or fish when you can. Stay away from fatty cuts of beef and all pork.
As long as you choose wisely with your meat selection, you'll have no problem staying lean.
