I have always been the sporty type. I played hockey in High School, picked up running while I studied my way through a degree. I did Taebo, hiking, gym and now I am simply hooked on Adventure Boot Camp, which I do five days a week!

For me the easiest way for this not to become an issue is to allow myself at least one “cheat” day a week! As I mentioned before when eating out, you can substitute your carbs with veg or salad but there is nothing better than a yummy pud every now and then 🙂
With just over a month to go until we leave for Italy, we have decided to do a bit of a detox this week, with a juice cleanse for a few days.

I will let you know next week if it has been successful and share any tips and recipes I have enjoyed with you.
