Every year for the last 4 years I have had LOSE WEIGHT on my list of Goals when New Years comes. And every year for the last four years I have failed miserably – in fact gaining weight. This year is my year. I am ready and determined to eat better, exercise more, and set small goals that I can reach and continue setting bigger and bigger ones. One of those goals is eating (and drinking) more healthy – which means cutting out a LOT of what I was eating and replacing it with a LOT of fruits and veggies and more nutritious items. (Why can’t a doughnut be a healthy breakfast? 🙁 ). So I went on a shopping trip at Target and found two things that are going to make my life a lot easier and give me morning energy – BelVita Bites – Mini Breakfast Biscuits and V8 Veggie Blends Drinks.
Another of my 5 goals this year was to wake up early (it is killing me, lol, but I am doing it). This means I need extra energy in the morning to take care of my kids and get my workout in before I start on my list of 5,978 things to do every day. (you think I am kidding? 😉 ). Eating a nutritious breakfast is a morning win for me, so I am making an active effort to eat them every day as well as have a vegetable juice drink.
V8 Veggies Blends and BelVita Bites – Mini Breakfast Biscuits are a big part of that. They give me energy and nutrients that I need before I workout without weighing me down and it is quick and easy. I was able to pick up this cute workout top and the yoga pants at Target while I was there getting my other items. It was nice being able to pick everything up in one place (anyone who shops with kids, knows what I mean).
My 5 Goals for this year are:
- Lose Weight
- Exercise every day
- Eat a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner (and snacks)
- Wake up earlier
- Spend more quality time with my family
All of these goals are within my reach. I just have to have the determination and will power to see them through. I want to do this. I am ready to change and become a better version of myself. I know I am going to keep these goals this year because I have set realistic baby steps for myself. For each of the goals listed above – I have made a list of ten steps to help me achieve that goal. I take it one day at a time and it has been working great!
Having delicious beverages like V8 Veggie Blends are way better for me than the soda and “pretend” juice drinks (with like 5% juice) that I have been drinking. I don’t eat near enough veggies – so the V8 Veggie Blends are the perfect addition to my diet. Every 8oz glass has a full serving of vegetables. I love that it is 75% vegetable and fruit juices and 25% water. It is also packed with antioxidant vitamins A, C & E, with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives!
It comes in four delicious blended flavors:
- Carrot Mango contains the juices of Carrot and Mango
- Purple Power contains the juices of Purple Carrots, Beets and Apple
- Healthy Greens contains the juices of Spinach, Yellow Carrots, Apples, and Pineapple
- Golden Goodness contains the juices of Yellow Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Orange Carrots, and Orange
BelVita Bites – Mini Breakfast Biscuits are just as good as the bigger version you are used to. These little bite size biscuits taste so good, and leave me feeling energized. I also love that there is a lot in the bag because it helps me overcome my snacking urges by allowing me to grab a few to tide me over. Both the mixed berry and the chocolate varieties are great.
