Donuts for breakfast? Why not, says the lunatic

Confession time:

In the last couple days, my nutrition/diet/healthy lifestyle has… uh… slipped, somewhat.

And by “slipped”…

I mean it’s completely f*cking nose-dived.

What’s been on the menu, you ask?

  • Mexican street food
  • Greasy burgers and chips from Five Guys
  • Boatloads of Sushi
  • 12am KFC orders
  • Ramen meant for 2 people that I’ve shoved down my gullet regardless
  • The list goes on…

(Canary Wharf has a TON of great restaurants that deliver in like 20 mins to my apartment)

The low point was cracking into a “sharer’s dozen” box from Krispy Kreme donuts…

For breakfast…

On Sunday morning.

I feel gross typing that, I can only imagine how you feel reading it.

Not my proudest moment…

Oh, and exercise?

Never heard of her.

(I’m not counting the sporadic bodyweight exercises I did ̶5̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶4̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶s̶ ̶3̶ ̶t̶i̶m̶e̶s̶ twice in like the last 10 days)

Thing is…

This always happens RIGHT before I have a week off scheduled.

Normally I run a very tight ship with my health and fitness.

But I’m drained.

My willpower is at 2%.

Ordering food has become an autopilot thing.

Remember how you screwed around at school as a kid on the last few days before half term holidays?

That’s kinda what I’ve been doing with my general lifestyle haha


All this to say:

I’m taking a week off

I need to decompress…

Chill out…

Mentally process a crazy few months…

And return to healthy habits so I can hit the ground running when I get back to it.

(^ Btw, strongly recommend taking 1 week off every quarter. Game-changer for performance, especially if, like me, you’re a glutton for pain and take on WAYYY too much stuff all at once)

Okay, that’s it.

No lesson.

No value.

No warm fuzzies.

Nothing AT ALL that benefits you from reading this post.

Aren’t you glad you’re following me? ;-)

Speak soon, (in a week’s time to be exact… so please don’t send me an email asking where I am or why you can’t book a call because HOLY COW I got SO many emails and Facebook messages and LinkedIn messages last time from people asking why they couldn’t book a call and if they missed some weird memo that I’d shut everything down out of the blue in a moment of madness and in some cases CURSING my name for having not times available… please don’t do that sh*t okayloveyoubye)
