So it was through one of these early morning tweet sessions that I connected with Donna. We would exchange some tweets in the morning and then she asked if she could participate in The Athlete’s Plate. Without hesitation I said yes as I thought it would be cool to have an international flare to the feature.
If you read Donna’s bio you get all you need to know that she is a terrific person. Her bio specifically says:
American-in-London, Hawaiian-at-heart. Paratriathlete. Adventure lover, world traveller. Food eater, wine drinker. Bendy joints, slow nerves, CMT1A. Love life!
Love life? Oh those were sweet words for me to hear/read. Donna blogs over at Beating Limitations – I Tri Because I Can. She discusses her training, teaches about her take on living with a neuromuscular disorder like CMT, as well as her charity fundraising activities to support the search for a cure.
For me, the best part of interacting with Donna is the morning tweets about her adventures through Paris or The Netherlands. It is like having a tour guide without the cost.
Donna participated in the Athlete’s plate by the Athlete and here is her email to me verbatim plus my take on it in red.
Nothing wrong with treating yourself but again it boils down to a true serving size and moderation as Donna points out.
I think that Donna’s day of eating is very well done. She had her indulgences but limited them and knew that they were indulgences and not an everyday habit. I really liked the idea that she pushed away a salad because it was just not for her and did not force herself to eat it.
Thank you Donna for participating in this feature (does Wheetabix ship?)
