Day #3: No Joke

Day # 3 of my 30 day Smoothie & Raw Food Challenge

This is my rest day from my "NHS Couch to 5K" training for my first 5K. I did insanity work out this morning and realized that this is "no joke."

I will continue to post my feelings on each workout as I progress and hope it will get easier.
