We’ve all been there before – you spend weeks pumping yourself up for the commitment you’re going to make towards a healthier diet and regular fitness routine. This time, things are going to be different. You WILL do what it takes to look and feel your best. You’re so motivated, you start off strong! You avoid carbs for three weeks straight.

As you all know, I follow a fairly regimented nutrition and exercise plan. That being said there are certain times of the year when I allow myself special treats.

By nature I am not the scared type. You could say that throughout my life I have done a lot of really dangerous things with absolutely no thought.
