Life Sometimes Gets In The Way – But Start Again #PersonalTrainerFood



Start Again


As you know I have been working with Personal Trainer Food to get more healthy and change my diet into a much more healthy way to live.  One way I ended up in the rut that I am in is because we are always on the go and pretty much just turned to fast food when we needed to eat on our way to someplace else.


I had been doing so much better since started with Personal Trainer Food but the last week and a half derailed me a bit.  Before I go into detail, I can say I am back on track but felt pretty badly about getting derailed.  But in this case, life truly just got in the way.


A week and a half ago my son ended up in the hospital.  Physically he is fine but he had an allergic reaction to his medication and his body is so sensitive that he cannot be transitioned to a different medication on an outpatient basis – it must be inpatient.  But I still needed to visit him every day.  Then my husband was in Florida, while my son was in the hospital, for our other son’s graduation from college.  Yeah, timing is everything.  So most days my daughter and I would leave the house at 7am and not get home until around 9pm at least.  There was no way to avoid just grabbing something at some point.  My son needed us and the horses still needed us.  In fact there was one day I just couldn’t get to the barn to care for our horses so thankfully my friends all pitched in.  It is no easy task so that was a huge help.


Anyway, I swore when I started this process I would not “cheat” or get derailed.  But I think there is still a middle ground where I need to really just not have a panic attack over it.  My body physically did not appreciate the change from the healthy diet so I was anxious to get back to it and start again.


That is this weeks’ (two weeks) update.   Not what anyone was expecting for an update but it is what it is.


Once I returned to my diet, holiday parties were already starting.  For the most part they are buffet style where everyone brings something and I will share with you what I have been bringing and it has been a huge hit everywhere I’ve gone.


I go to the grocery store and purchase whatever fresh or frozen vegetables I want that are on my approved foods list – non starchy vegetables.  I use pearl onions, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, squash, peppers and more.  Just mix it all together and toss it into a crockpot – the greater the variety the better.  Add some water and cook on high for about three hours.  THEN (this is the important part) – drain the water and add butter into the crockpot for another hour.  Once the butter melts add seasoning.  The seasoning is critical – I use Red Robin Signature Seasoning.  Yes – straight from Red Robin but you can also buy it on Amazon.  Never had vegetables with this seasoning on it?  You are in for a huge surprise.  Let’s just say I hate green beans – and hate is not too strong a word for that relationship.  But now I love them!

    You make those veggies sound so good. I bet that seasoning is delish. I think it’s funny how everyone binges during the holidays and then go on diets as soon as the new year starts. Funny cycle.

  2. Sarah-Louise Bailey says:

    I wanted to try that vegetable mix, as in any kind of veggies and then a butter and Red Robin Signature Seasoning. I have 1 bottle here in my kitchen and I wanna have some nutritious recipe to enjoy with it.

  3. Leigh Anne Borders says:

    This may be just the perfect thing we need in my family. I have some boys that do not eat veggies. With this seasoning, perhaps they will.

  4. Annemarie LeBlanc says:

    Now this is something I would love to have in my pantry. It is going to bring life to my veggies. I usually just blanch them to retain their original flavor, but after some time it gets boring. I’ll look for this brand of seasoning when I get to do my grocery shopping this week.

    Glad that you’re back on track – fast food can be tempting, but it’s just not really good. Albeit a little difficult, I have always been making a conscious effort to not go for fast food. I’m all for healthier choices, especially veggies which I started to appreciate last quarter of last year.

    nice to know that you are back on track! living in dubai is so friendly specially for vegan or healthy people minded like us! they have cheap greek food or anything healthy anywhere! so it is not hard for me even if i’m on the go. This is a good seasoning! I love veggies, but I use a filipino seasoning called magic sarap hehe. Will try to find this one too!

  7. Rosey says:

    I used to get so discouraged when set-backs in anything took place. Now I expect them and know they’re just glitches. 🙂

  8. Natasha says:

    I would be interested in trying this. We love Red Robin. And I definitely feel you on the timing of some life events that can derail your plans. But it is great that you can start over.

  9. Misty Dawn Nelson says:

    Not heard of this before but it really looks a good seasoning. I would check this out perfect for my veggies to have a good taste

    It’s nice that you’re doing great with your diet. I’m sorry about what happened to your son. That seasoning sounds awesome! I’d love to get one for myself!

  11. Emma says:

    Sounds like a great compromise between sticking to your diet and cooking something quickly. Im sure it tastes great too! Don’t beat yourself up, it’s hard to make the right food choices when you have much bigger problems to worry about! Your son’s health is the most important thing
