WIAW: Getting back on track

i havent done one of these in awhile, but since im trying to get back on track, i thought id post my eats. im attempting to not gain lots of weight over this holiday season, while trying to lose the 7 lbs i gained since my birthday. oops!!

i prepped my lunch on sunday to prepare for a hopefully clean eating week. i also made the husband his breakfast burritos for the week.

yesterday morning i woke up early, got dressed to go for a run. and then i walked outside in 30 degree weather with a wind chill of 20 something. i turned right back around and went inside. that was TOO cold for this girl. so i went in our spare room and did 15 minutes on the elliptical, did 30 squats, and did a few weighted arm exercises. felt good to get a little workout in.

i decided it was time to get back on the paleo train as much as possible to get back on track. soo i went back to my typical whole 30 breakfast. this usually keeps me full up until lunch time.

eggs, bacon, and a honey crisp apple (THE best kind of apple)

but then we got a christmas platter from a contractor (i work at an architects office) i forgot we get crazy amounts of sweets this time of year. ugh. i caved and had a homemade oreo ball. mmm

i love having prepped lunches. its a no brainer and it keeps me from running to a fast food place.

chicken (that i cooked in salsa in the crockpot), roasted green beans, and peas n carrots 
(i put different veggies everyday)

on the dinner menu last night was chili. perfect for a chilly night (pun-intended). i used my regular chili recipe that ive used for years.. but minus the beans. i love the beans in chili, but paleo does not. so i adjusted my chili to fit the paleo style. there are crackers and cheese burried under all that chili.

ive also started drinking more water than usual to try and get in the water habit again. so far getting back on track hasnt been too bad. im hoping to keep it up and not drown myself in cookies and egg nog.

happy hump day!
