Feeling great and not deprived?? Keep it going! See if you can make it through the weekend eating like this…And if you need to add a glass of wine or a piece of dark chocolate but mostly eat like this, that is a win too!

Lest we forget the other important factor in our quest for a healthy life, stay tuned for Friday’s FIT-approved work out! In the meantime, make sure you are getting at least 10,000 steps per day.
