This past weekend was a blast for us! I spent Saturday in Baltimore with my Hubby and Kimber; checking out the aquarium and enjoying some yummy food.

On Sunday, I traveled back home with the fam to host a birthday cook-out/party for my Mom, Dad and many friends. Nope...the weekend isn't over yet! Monday was a day off for Hubby, so that means that the two of us had a date day. We ran some errands, went out to lunch, had some drinks and finished the evening out watching Hell's Kitchen and Master Chef while eating ice cream.
Notice that at no point in the recap of the weekend did I mention anything about a healthy, home-cooked meal or an amazing workout. That's because it didn't happen. This weekend was full of fun, but I splurged a bit in the food and drink department. It wasn't waaaay over-the-top, but it definitely wasn't the usual routine for me. So instead of getting up this morning, feeling sluggish and guilty about my weekend shenanigans, I made today a fresh start!
I woke up a little before 8 and had a healthy breakfast of oatmeal. Then, I hit the treadmill for a 4.5 mile run and ended with some upper-body weight training. In just matter of a couple hours, I am back on track! The weekend didn't ruin me. It was actually really fun to let lose a bit. But I can see how it could be easy to fall into some unhealthy patterns. Thank goodness for fresh starts.
So, the point I wanna make here is don't go beating yourself up about splurges and moments of weakness. So what if you ate a little something you don't noramlly have or drink a few more than you should?!?! It's not the end of your life as a fit and fabulous person. Each day is a fresh start and a chance to live your healthiest, happiest life. Start fresh and move forward.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
