::Benefits of Yoga::






There are a LOT more reasons as to why everyone should include yoga into their exercise regime
(check out this website http://www.abc-of-yoga.com/beginnersguide/yogabenefits.asp)
It's as easy as Googling Yoga moves, or downloading a free app on your phone and trying it out.
Do it!! :)

went for a run yesterday despite feelings of laziness.
sometimes all you have to do is put on your shoes
and trick your mind into thinking you're only going for a "quick walk".
before you know it, you're out on the pavement with your running buddy
in the form of a German Shepherd;
the wind whipping your hair (willow smith style),
your lungs screaming for mercy,
and endorphins bounding their way across your body
infiltrating your very insides.

before i knew it, my workout was done
i was a sweaty mess
and there was a big smile on my face
:)


breakfast:
1 slice light rye toast with peanut butter and organic honey
sprinkle of white chia seeds
tea with skim milk
omnomnom

"Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure." - Unknown 




my breakfast: 2 eggs on wholemeal toast

benefits of eggs:
- eggs are great for eyesight
One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.
regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots, stroke, and heart attacks.
 They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat
 Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D
 - Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals
