How to Get Back on Track when You’ve Slipped

It can happen to anyone.

One day you’re drinking green juice, hitting the gym and sleeping a full eight hours. The next … you’re waking up on a pile of fast-food wrappers.

Making healthy lifestyle changes isn’t easy. But rather than banging your head against a wall each time you slip up, just get back on that proverbial horse and try again — ASAP.
