Grilled Chicken Salad

Oh man... what a day! Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and menu plans, balancing, accessible foods, etc. etc. goes out the window! Today was one of those days for me. So... what do you do? ...I think you just have to relax, cut yourself some slack, and do the BEST you can with the options that are presented to you. Obstacle number 1. Morning emergency with broken down vehicle, missed breakfast! Grabbed an apple and Larabar and ran out the door. Obstacle number 2. Lunch with an old college friend (Hobee's) ordered breakfast at 11:30... vegetable scramble (no cheese) with a side of fruit. Obstacle number 3. HAD TO GET CROSSFIT IN!! Went to 7pm Eva T's class=late dinner! Ring Dips and Dead Lifts... now I'm hungry. Ugh... nothing to prepare at home. So, we stopped at Safeway and got grilled chicken breasts from the deli, took them home and made a quick Paleo chicken salad.
Congratulations to all of you who are taking on this challenge, and let's persevere through the obstacles!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to John (yesterday) and Kim (tomorrow)!!! :)

*There's still time to get in on the fun! Challenge "cut-off" date is this Friday, Sept. 4th.

Kelly, nice job getting through the obstacles and still sticking with it. Also, thanks for your very real world posting. Sometimes the stuff I read seems so unrealistic, it's irritating. Thanks so much! I'm off to LA for a few days with my family where, in the past, lots of alcohol was necessary to get through it. It'll be interesting to see how 4oz a day treats me...

Keep it up everyone!!

I also try to remind myself is that diet is not "black and white". That is, even just cutting back on dairy or taking a smaller helping of rice can all give improvements over where you would have been.
