This Year BE GOOD To Yourself!

Friday, February 19, 2016








I never really determine a set of goals for 2016 specifically and certainly haven't written them here or even said them aloud. I think, maybe, if I write them, say them specifically I will surely fail. I just know that I want to do better and be better this year than I was last year. I want to have less fear and more joy. I want to worry less and play more. I want my body to feel good and not worry about how it looks to others. Changing my mindset is top priority and letting go of the fear of failure is number one!



After I had Ezra, 16 months ago, I had a hard time recovering and I told myself I wasn't going to worry about how I looked, my weight, etc until I felt better and I have felt better and still I struggle with those few pounds that have come back, but I am trying to choose not to struggle. I want to do things that make me feel good because I am treating my body well. So, my goals for this year include being good to myself. The way I look at my body, feel in body, and what I put into my body have to improve. So, here I am saying out loud that next time I want to go through Steak Escape and get the loaded fries, I am going to just drive on to Smoothie King and get a shake instead. It's SO simple and costs LESS. That huge smoothie that I couldn't even finish up there was less than what I'd order at most drive thrus.


Wednesday after work, I met my husband at Smoothie King just near my work and we sat on the patio for a few minutes and drank our smoothies. It was nice.

He had the Greek Yogurt Strawberry Blueberry. I made him let me taste it and it was SO good. They use Chobani® Nonfat Greek Yogurt (my fav), Strawberries, Blueberry Juice Blend, Non-fat Milk, Vanilla Protein Blend, Electrolyte Mix, Fiber Blend. 



I had the Almond Mocha High Protein (with a little extra Mocha). I loved it, but I think I should have had them "make it skinny." I'll know next time! That would put the 32oz under 400 calories and it's definitely a whole meal!

Writing this is making me want to go back tonight! I think I might. I can't think of a better treat on a Friday night for myself and for the boys. Have you seen the kid's smoothies? I know my little guys would love them.


So, while I'm working on being good to myself, I can in turn teach my children that being healthy and active is just a way of life and there's so much good and fun to be found in a healthy lifestyle!


Are you taking on a challenge this year? Tell us about in the comments!


Smoothie King has so many great ways to make a positive change, from saving money and calories by going for a smoothie instead of a hamburger to committing to a smoothie a day with the #changeameal challenge. You can join the e-Kingdom to get a $2.99 coupon and with their app you can earn rewards toward a free meal (smoothie). 

If you are headed into Smoothie King this weekend, head here to choose which meal replacement smoothie you'll try! 

Weight loss is dependent on each individual’s needs and is based on a low-calorie diet combined with an exercise program. Consult your physician before beginning any diet program.

  1. Yum! I need to go try one of their smoothies. Just saw there are several locations near me. I'm surprised I haven't been in before. I bet they would make a great meal.

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
