Avocado Caprese Salad

Happy Thursday!

After going on vacation we had zero food in our fridge, so I went to the grocery store yesterday and stocked up on all healthy things! Usually I plan our meals for the week, but this week I have been lacking motivation a bit so I just grabbed a bunch of random things and hopefully I can create some great things to eat this week!

I have to admit, I did not work out this morning. Or yesterday morning. Ugh, ever since I hurt my back I have been afraid to work out as hard as I used to, I keep finding myself taking it easy. After going a whole week not working out from being on vacation, it has been hard for me to get back into my old routine. I am planning on working out tonight when I get home. I have been in this same situation before, when I lost a little weight and decided that I can go back to the lifestyle I had before because I’m done. Well now I know, you’re never done with being healthy. It lasts for my entire life, and I will probably struggle with food and exercise forever! But I know when I have a routine going it gets much easier, to the point that I really don’t have to think about it anymore.

I can say that since I got back from vacation I have been eating healthy! I made this Avocado Caprese Salad for lunch today, and it was delicious! I think I’m missing the awesome pizza I had in Boston, and I have been craving basil!
