Crispy Crunch Fruity Snacks...

I have totally wore myself out with all the exercise I did last week!

Not much water, fruit or veg as I was constantly thinking about grabbing a high energy snack and then onto the next run/ spin class/ circuit class/ bike ride lead me to being so weak and knocked off my feet this week I have been forced to rest.

Rome wasn't built in a day!

I have learned the hard way! I know now that getting fit is about getting the balance right too. Workout, refuel, drink plenty of water, eat fruit and veg for vitimins and get lots of rest.

One day I will get it right!!
