Happy Monday as if there is such a thing! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are feeling better than me today. (More on that in a minute)
Friday was great, I got to grab lunch with friends and meet the cutest 3 week old munchkin you've ever seen. I got chicken tacos on corn tortillas with no sauce- tacos are always one of my go-to's when we eat out. Then Friday night we went over to my mother-in-laws for some steaks and we were back home and in bed nice and early, just how I like it.
I trained on Saturday morning and then had a relaxing afternoon which consisted of catching up on my DVR, peanut butter and jelly Greek Yogurt, and a little leisurely reading.
I also finally got to wear my Threads! If you guys haven't heard of The Shine Project definitely check it out when you get a chance. It's an amazing program that helps at-risk youth and you get some really awesome jewelry in return. Can't beat that!
Saturday night is when some not so good choices were made. By not so good I mean too many drinks and up too late. We definitely had a great time celebrating a friends birthday but GOSH I am too old for this! I still don't feel normal today… talk about not worth it!
Yesterday's couch day also turned into I need a cheat meal day. We ordered pizza, wings and I got a nice big salad because believe it or not that actually sounded really good. I definitely didn't beat myself up over eating a million super greasy wings, I just made sure to round out the day with a nice healthy dinner :)
I wanted to post about this because I get asked a lot how to handle the social aspect when you are trying to make health and fitness a priority. I think it's completely fine to go all out ^^ see above^^ as long as it's not something that happens on a regular basis. Now, when I have a goal in mind would a night out like this happen? No, it wouldn't. But that's why it's good to take breaks, allow yourself to breathe a little and then get on to the next goal!
How do you balance going out with friends and living a healthy lifestyle?
