another chance to get it right

by purelytwins

Thanks everyone for the sweet words and congrats about our time at Disney and running in the princess half marathon.

Yesterday, we felt like we were still living in a big blur. Having 3 days of non-stop action was hitting us. So Monday we took it easy. We knew that tomorrow we get another chance to get it right.

We are both trying to get back into our normal routine and our normal eats again. We really enjoyed ourselves at Disney and are now excited to get back.  We took yesterday off from working out and just took it easy again.


I (Lori) had a morning flight heading back to NC yesterday morning so Michelle got up early with me to enjoy some coffee and food before leaving for the airport. We chatted about our projects that we want to do – mainly dealing with my personal training and more cookbook ideas.  Anxious to get all our thoughts and ideas finalized to get moving on the projects.


Upon arriving back in Charlotte I knew I had nothing in the house to eat so I quickly stopped by Whole Foods to grab some eggs, bacon and a few other vegetables. I made myself 2 whole eggs with some bacon and brussel sprouts, topped with coconut oil.


Also made myself a little bit more coffee to help wake me up some from traveling to get things done around the house.

To be honest I had no motivation to do anything. Just wanted to play with Jax and relax all day. But I did my best to do some work.  I still felt like I was in a big blur.  My body and mind didn’t know what to do.


Snacked on some truffles  that Michelle made for  us to enjoy. So good.


Late afternoon got a little hungry so made another egg with a few more brussel sprouts. I still have not really gone to the store to get more food hehe.


Started to get things ready for dinner and Jax took his normal spot while I cooked.


Dinner was more lettuce (been craving greens), roasted turnips, half a can of sardines and salmon. Topped with olive oil and dulse flakes.


Snacked on a few more truffles to end my night.



After dropping Lori off at the airport I came back to my sister’s house to make eggs and bacon.

I did some computer work before making up more food to eat.


I made myself another egg with brussel sprouts and coconut oil.  Also ate a chocolate truffle.

I did some work with Raw Threads before making myself some dinner.


Dinner was some carrots, lettuce and last bit of ground lamb/turkey mix topped with coconut oil.


Dessert was chocolate truffles from our cookbook.

Our thoughts of our day:

We both forgot to take any pills yesterday. We hope to get back on track today. Sometimes while traveling it is hard to always remember everything, but we did feel a little difference from not taking our pills to help with digestion and such. As both of us are still living in a big blur it feels like we are slowly getting back into our swing of things. Our water intake over the past few days has not been good at all. And for our bowel movements, well they were very small but that is to be expected. We know we will get back to getting our digestive health back to order here soon.


Remember every day is a new day!  A new day to start all over. A new day to try something new. A new day to finish a project you have been working on. A new day to do whatever you need to do 🙂

Twins question: What new project or thing are you starting today? What is your favorite quote or words to get your motivated to get going again?  How do you go about starting over? 

til next time,

I need to work on focusing on one project at a time! Right now, I have about 12 (or more) going on and I need to really stop, focus and complete some. Sounds like you two are getting back into the swing of things today. I hate the lack of food and water I have on trips. That always throws me off. Hopefully your bodies will feel refreshed today! Have a great one ladies! xoxo

This may not be the case for you but boiled eggs cause constipation for me. I asked my health practitioner about this and she said it’s fairly common and well known and that I should fry or bake my eggs. I poach my eggs as well but try to keep the yolks runny and this does seem to help. Not sure why hard boiled eggs would do this, but there most be some science behind it.

YUM Eats Ladies!

I love the message in this post. I agree-We have to let go, move on, and start fresh. It is the only way, right!
It is hard traveling and not having a routine though- I hear that!

purelytwins February 26, 2013 - 12:14 pm

thanks Moni! and yes let go and move on 🙂

The best way to get going again is to connect with God and trust that He knows best. Everything runs smoothly when I stop worrying and know that God will provide in the best way possible!

Love you girls! Keep up the motivation.

And, wow, thanks for my smile and laugh of the day, Jax!

I have the cookbook, are these the protein truffles? They look so good 🙂 I have made most of the recipes and they are all amazing, but I haven’t made the protein truffles yet.

I try to remember that even if it seems like I didn’t do a great job with something, that it is just an opportunity to learn from it and do it better next time! 🙂

I almost always feel like that after trips (& I travel so much!) but I tend to feel so much better after just a couple of good days of eats etc! Hey at least u ran a half marathon which is spectacular!!

I love the mentality that every day is a new day to start over and reset. I try to stay on track, but if I falter, I don’t stress. It’s easy to get back on track after you’ve developed healthy habits because you know how good you feel when you fuel your body right!
