How has your day been?
Today I could not get enough coffee! But… that’s kind of the case every single day. lol
After getting Jordan off to school, I did some emails and work, then I did a PiYo workout! PS – I love PiYo! I have been doing PiYo for over a year and it is one of my favorite workouts! I did BUNS today followed by 10 minutes of core work on my own. Holy burn! Even after a year, it still burns!
I went to go get in the shower and saw someone found a sliver of sun to lay in! She was sooooo happy sunbathing!
After a week of down time with my mom, I am recommitting to myself again. I think it’s super important to keep recommitting to yourself, your goals and desires! After very minimal working out and relaxed eating, my clean diet is coming back in full force! I can tell my sugar cravings have been out of control lately and I need to get those in check FAST! Sugar has and always will be my downfall – it’s really easy for me to fall into the sugar trap.
I had to restock my healthy foods ASAP! So a trip to Trader Joes was in order! Keep in mind that NOT all of what I bought was for me – I bought for my son’s lunch and my husband, too.
Bag 1 – ground turkey, chicken breasts, frozen blueberries, nitrate-free smoked turkey, yogurt for Jordan, black beans, garbanzo beans, salsa, organic tortilla chips, potatoes, organic romaine, organic eggs and tea tree soap.
Bag 2 – organic baby spinach, organic yogurt tubes for Jordan (like GoGurt but much healthier!), frozen fish sticks for Jordan, organic tomato soup, string cheese, organic bars for Jordan, nitrate-free black forest ham, plain greek yogurt, asparagus, broccoli and dark chocolate.
Bag 3 – tomato sauce, yellow onion, apples, Panda cereal for Jordan, bananas, cantaloupe, cauliflower and almond milk.
Clean Eating Tip – When you have healthy options in the house, you will eat healthy!
I was in such a rush to get out the door today that I completely forgot to eat! I ended up eating a Lara Bar on the way home from the store… at 2:30pm!
After I put the groceries away, I made myself a smoothie. This really hit the spot!
Tropical Strawberry Protein Powder (I used Shakeology)
1 large ripe banana
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Cold, thick and creamy!
I also had a small snack about an hour after my smoothie:
Pumpkin Terra Chips and a string cheese – my mom left the chips from when she was here and at first I didn’t like them… but they are actually pretty good! I am all about pumpkin right now!
Before dinner we all just hung out and relaxed! We watched Back to the Future III in honor of Back to the Future day. The third one is my favorite!
Dinner was SIMPLE! I made pasta sauce with ground turkey, basil, garlic and boiled some spaghetti and steamed some green beans. I had a small portion of noodles, a ton of green beans and a healthy portion of meat sauce. I love adding veggies to my pasta bowls.
For dessert I had a piece of dark chocolate.
Here are my tips for getting back on track after a day, a weekend, a week or maybe a month from your healthy eating and living schedule:
Don’t dwell on the past!
Create a PLAN of attack!
Surround yourself with healthy inspiration!
Make a change TODAY!
Be patient and extend grace towards yourself!
How do you get back on track after time off?
