getting real | exercise & nutrition

So this year I’ve let myself get a little lot out of control with my fitness & nutrition. As you can tell from my blog, I.Love.Food. And I have to balance that out, like everyone, with working out otherwise I get fat. And I also love fashion. In all reality being bigger limits your fashionContinue reading “getting real | exercise & nutrition”

obstacles | wednesday workout

A couple of week’s ago I lost my Polar heartrate strap.
