Hamburgers, donuts, sodas, and.... running??

So... those 4 things do NOT go together!!! For the most part I eat healthy (ish) but yesterday I did not do very well!! I have a deep addiction to Krispy Kreme donuts (in America, do y'all have those in Europe??) my friends make fun of me because they are most definitely my weakness.... they're just delicious and I love them... so I had those for breakfast yesterday. Then for supper I had a burger combo, and it's useless to pay for a drink without consuming it... I wasn't even that hungry and nothing sounded good, but I knew it would be BAD NEWS this morning if I didn't eat anything!

So then I woke up this morning to run... 7:00 mind you, not 4:45.... and boy did I feel every bit of what I ate yesterday!!! I also didn't stretch or do strengthening yesterday, it was just an off day! Wayyy busy at work so when I got home I was exhausted.

But, alas, I finished week 3 in all of its glory!!! Have learned a few lessons, so will get back on track!!!

Week 4, 5 minute run! Let's go!!!! 👍🏻

Healthy eating needs to be full time.. with the very odd treat ?

There is a great selection of food out there. delicious, tasty, easy to prep and good for you!!

"You are what you eat.

Every 28 days, your skin replaces itself.

Your liver, 5 months.

Your bones, 10 years.

Your body makes these new cells from the food you eat.

What you eat literally becomes you.

You have a choice in what you’re made of. "
