There are always lots of opinions and advice given when someone posts an question. And just like an individuals body and mind, the way we choose to live a healthy life style is different as well.

So for this post, I would like you to simply state your plan for a healthier you!!!!

For me a balanced diet with more protein and veggies-less fat and simple carbs around 1600-1800 calories/day. "Clean eating" with as little processing as possible at least 90% of the time. A constantly changing exercise plan focused on strength and cardio (running). I have been following this plan easily for 4.5 months with 15 lost inches and 10 lost pounds---and 30 seconds faster per mile running.
You can get there from here.

1. Strength training... lifting HEAVY weights (the many reps of light weight didn't work for me)
2. Running
3. Strength training
4. Avoiding "fake" foods. Eating only real food 95% of the time.
5. Low on the grains... I think individuals vary on this one, but they just leave me slow and lethargic
6. Walking to work and biking to the gym

bad day
If it were me I would blame it on the mother-in-law completely. There is no need to involve your husband, yourself, or even the car when there is a mother-in-law involved. Good luck today!
