After A Weekend of Holiday Eating



It's the Fourth of July weekend, and everyone is with family and friends, hanging at the lake or the beach. You're headed to a BBQ with lots of drinks, and LOTS of FOOD! So, how do you get back on track after a day OR weekend of bad eating?


Move on and don't stress about it. The more you dwell, the worse you will feel. Unless you're competing in a bikini or body building challenge, then don't worry about what you eat or drink. Of course, I would say everything in moderation... ;)

Here's the thing. We are not defined by numbers; how many glasses of wine did I have? How many beers did I drink? How many pieces of pie did I eat? Oh, goodness, I must have gained 10 pounds!


You are not defined by a number. You are defined by how you feel inside and out. Don't let a day or two of "bad eating" define who you are.

I'm here to spread the word that you can have everything you want... health, happiness, balance and flexibility. I'm here to show you that you can have flexibility and grace in your nutrition without sacrificing the foods and drinks you want.


1. Get in a workout. I have plenty of them for you on my Instagram @fitlifedee and Facebook @fitlifedee pages. I'll be adding workouts to my Youtube channel too. deannamercurio

2. Focus on a lower carb day. Here's a sample of my lower carb menu:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, 1/2 avocado and an arugula salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and a few walnuts - toss with a drizzle of olive oil and salt & pepper for taste.

Lunch: Chicken salad. Using lots of veggies like; butter lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, green onions and peppers. Toss with a drizzle olive oil, almonds and salt & pepper for taste.

Dinner: Turkey burger and stir fried veggies.

Snacks: Rice cake with almond butter, a cup of berries (strawberries, blueberries) and a protein shake post workout mixed with water or almond milk.


  • Flexibility and grace in your nutrition... not letting food rule you.

  • Working out for your health.... not spending hours in the gym.

  • Having balance in your life... not live to workout, but workout to live.

I believe in consistency, because consistency leads to progress not perfection. NO FOOD IS OFF LIMITS. Which is why I'm an advocate for exercise... one workout at a time.

I'm here to help you. I'm connected on several platforms (IG, FB, Email, Youtube) and I personally answer all my messages. There shouldn't be shame in reaching out for help, there shouldn't be guilt either. This is why I do what I do, to empower you one workout at a time, to empower you to reach your personal goals (who knows, your personal goals just may help you reach your professional goals). Believe in yourself. Take Action and Make It Happen.
