Alrighty, guys! After the success of the fundraiser/raffle that I did for my surgery, I’m finally able to pay it forward! The Color Me Rad 5k contacted me about wanting to sponsor a giveaway on my blog - so of course I had to say yes! They also let me choose a charity to raise money for, and I chose the Wright Way Rescue, which is the rescue that my boyfriend and I adopted our dog Fozzi from! This is going to be a pretty amazing fundraiser for a pretty amazing cause. I’m hoping to raise at least $5000, if not more! All the proceeds will go directly to the Wright Way Rescue, minus around $800-$1000 to purchase the prizes for the giveaway that the Color Me Rad 5k is not supplying. You can speak to two of my previous giveaway winners here and here, this is not fake or a scam! I always make good on my giveaways! 

Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.
Wright-Way Rescue is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Their mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets euthanized in the Midwest each year through an adoption program, community education, promotion of spaying and neutering, and a veterinary medicine program. They continue to save pets from rural animal control facilities where they are at a high risk of euthanasia, and instead offer them a second chance at a loving home in the Chicagoland area. Wright-Way places more dogs in adoptive homes than any other no-kill rescue in the State of Illinois on just 10% of the budget. Wright Way Rescue also suffered a tragedy last October when a school bus crashed into their facilities and destroyed their adoption center. You can read more about the incident here. They have been at a temporary facility ever since and need help rebuilding!

I know we have all overeaten before one time or another..but once you’ve eaten that 4th slice of pizza…what do you do then? Here are some things NOT to do.
1. Mistake: Weighing Yourself
You know that your weight can fluctuate a lot from day to day—two pounds from water weight alone is totally normal. So if you binged last night, especially on salty foods that can cause water retention, your scale will reflect it the next morning. Don’t subject yourself to unnecessary angst—steer clear of the scale and focus on having a healthy day instead. (If you wait 48 hours to hop on the scale, your temporary water weight may well disappear by then).
2. Mistake: Skipping Breakfast
Still stuffed? Don’t blow off breakfast—if you do, I can pretty much guarantee you’ll have a bigger lunch or dinner than you want. Ample research shows that people who eat breakfast weigh less and eat healthier than people who skip it. If the thought of a big morning meal makes you queasy, have a little fruit and cottage cheese, a piece of toast with a light coating of peanut butter, or a small bowl of oatmeal and berries.
3. Mistake: Going Crazy at the Gym
If your usual workout routine is 20 minutes on the elliptical, don’t sign up for back-to-back Spinning, Zumba, and Ultimate Abs in an effort to torch off every last crumb. Jumping into a too-intense workout can raise your risk of getting injured. But don’t loaf around either: A brisk walk can help with digestion and soothe that bloated belly feeling.
4. Mistake: Skimping On Sleep
A new Columbia University study just found that people are more likely to crave junky food, like pepperoni pizza, cake, and cheeseburgers, on four hours of sleep than they are on eight hours, possibly because your brain craves a quick energy boost from these foods to fire on all cylinders. Get a good night’s snooze the night of and after your pig-out day to avoid an encore performance.
5. Mistake: Saying “I’ll Never Eat ____ Again”
One of the worst things after a day of less-than-ideal eating is to make any absolute food promises. Swearing off carbs or fried food or sweets may last for a few days or even a few weeks, but research shows that the best weight-loss plans allow for some indulgence in moderation. Don’t make any quick decisions or resolutions—the best thing you can do is just get back to your usual eating M.O. And when in doubt, overdo it on filling fresh fruits and veggies.

So useful. Don’t ever beat yourself up over it! You’re so much more than what you eat, and you have such a long life ahead of you. What’s a meal going to count to your entire, beautiful and amazing life? ❤️
