Day 16 (Thursday)

I was feeling a little worse for wear when I woke up, even though I didn't drink that much the night before, so toast was really the only thing I wanted for breakfast. Plus I had some avocado that needed to be used and there is really no substitute for avocado on toast! To make up for it I tried to minimise the carbs at other meals, but kind of failed at that and ended up over.

I also set my alarm to go for a run before work too but there was no way that was going to happen! I felt really tired all day and wanted to go home and just lie on the couch and stare blankly at the tv for several hours, but for some reason by the time I got home I decided to go for a run, and I'm really glad I did because it was quite a good run and although I'd been feeling so tired all day, I ran quite well!
