First Day of the Green Smoothie Challenge + New Goals!!

The past couple of days have been absolutely outstanding for me. I woke up one morning a few days ago the a HUGE amount of motivation to up my game in the food and fitness stakes, and since then I don't think I can remember eating as healthily with the amount of temptation which I've had around me!
So far I've turned down cream tea, pizza, cake, rockie road, brownies and I've just turned down a Chinese takeaway! I'm putting my latest burst of extra enthusiasm to me starting the 7 day green smoothie challenge which I started a day early to test out a couple of flavours.

Yesterday I went for a raspberry, strawberry and pineapple green smoothie which I added some MyProtein Elle True Diet in Vanilla to, and also some spinach to give it that lovely green colour! Today's was a little different with my going for pineapple and banana, but I'm hoping to up the creativity and try some of the more 'whacky' combinations which I've been seeing on Katherine's blog - Am I ready to add things like beetroot and carrot? I'm not sure just yet!

Aside from healthy eating, I've also picked up the pace a bit more with my exercise regime as I've added the extra goal of deciding to enter my first 10K race! It isn't until October due to me having to have to relocate for the year when I start my work placement so I have plenty of time to prepare, but I'm really excited at the prospect of putting myself to the test to see how far I've come. :)

I have so so many posts in the pipeworks, I'm really glad that my coursework is now over for the year (handed in my last three pieces of coursework today!) so I can get down to some serious blogging - I hate it when I can't post regularly!
Let me know if you've ran any races and leave any training tips for me below! I only run 2 miles at the minute so I have a lot of work to do haha :)
