Getting Back On Track

Posted Nov 30 2011 7:05am

Good morning, friends!

Nothing says “happy holidays” like pug butt on your wrapping paper!

is always so helpful. Aren’t all pugs? They love to be as close as possible to the action.

Murphy honestly didn’t realize that he was in my way at all.

Or maybe he did and just gave me the most pathetic pug face possible?


Last night’s dinner was all over the place. I ended up having a Crème Brulée Latte (<— wicked good) and an Outrageous Oatmeal Cookie at Starbucks while I studied for NASM , so I wasn’t hungry at the normal dinnertime.

It was a wine type of night, so I cracked opened a bottle and snacked on some Zesty Nacho Kale Chips that OpenSky sent me to test out– and they are SO good. I’ve already plowed through a bag of the BBQ flavor and half of a bag of Bombay Curry and now the Zesty Nacho. And, of course, kale is a nutritional powerhouse, so they have that going for them too. Great snack.

After kale chips and wine, came Cheez-Its.

And then a toasted whole wheat English muffin with Chia Charger nut butter on one side and sunflower butter on the other.

Not my best day of eating, but, hey, it happens.


I’m back on track with breakfast this morning: pumpkin oatmeal with almond milk, ground flaxseed meal, chia seeds , and a massive scoop of peanut butter. I have a busy day ahead (CPR certification + NuVal meeting + blog event), so I know that I needed a hearty breakfast to keep me going until lunch. Oatmeal with peanut butter is one of the only breakfasts that keep me full of hours and hours.

Speaking of getting back on track…

Feel Great Weight

Last week, I received an email from a reader asking for advice on how to get back on track after falling off the healthy-eating-and-exercise wagon. Even though I found my Feel Great Weight several years ago, I still go through periods of super-healthy habits and not-so-healthy habits. I maintain my weight for a few months and feel great, but then fall back into my old habits of overdoing it on desserts and skipping multiple workouts. Slipping up every once in a while isn’t a big deal, but the pounds would slowly creep on as soon as I started to veer off course with my eating and exercise.

Here’s how I get back on track when my healthy habits start to slip .

Question of the Day

How do you get back on track when you’ve fallen off the healthy-eating-and-exercise wagon?
