Hard to believe that the first month of 2015 is coming to a close, seems like it is going quickly already. I feel like I have missed out on telling you all about my personal goals for 2015, maybe it is because I have not had time to actually focus on the goals I want to achieve this year. When I started thinking about my goals I had one word that stuck in my mind. Balance. Goodness friends, I need to get Back to Balance now! My first clue - it is January 27th and I am just now thinking about my goals for the New Year!! Yikes!
2014 was a great year, Blessed pretty much describes it but that didn't mean I was being the best mom, wife or person and that needs to change. Life is crazy busy but now I need to slow that crazy train down and focus on the things that matter in life. Family, Health and Self Care.
Back to Balance in 2015 - Goals
At times I feel stretched to the max. When I am feeling this way I also find myself making bad health choices and not being present with my family, not to mention I never feel like there is time for me. Not a great way to feel. This is why this year I want to focus on Balance. This means making better choices, spending time with family, focusing on work and remembering to take time for myself.
I have a couple of big vices. Coffee and Candy. Yikes. Those two things are my biggest downfall. Those yummy coffee drinks can totally weigh you down and allow you to consume way more calories in one cup of coffee than necessary for a whole day! Thankfully SKINNY COW® has made this goal of being more mindful of my snacking and coffee intake super easy.
The NEW SKINNY COW® Creamy Iced Coffee Drink totally lets me get my yummy latte fill but in a sensible way. The cold coffee beverage has rich, expertly roasted coffee and is folded into creamy velvety low fat milk. For only 120 calories per bottle you will enjoy this coffeehouse inspired treat! The NEW SKINNY COW® Creamy Iced Coffee is available in three amazing flavors: Mocha Latte, Vanilla Latte, and Creamy Cappuccino.
I am using these in the morning. Instead of stopping at my local coffeehouse I simply stock up on these Iced Coffee drinks and feel better about my choices. The 120 calorie bottles are really easy to take with me to work too.
These two, I adore them and frankly they are growing up way too fast. I do not want another year to go by with out spending every moment I can with them. I need to learn to unplug when the kids are awake and focus on them. I do not want Jude and Teagan to grow up thinking that mommy has to have her phone on all the time. Quality family time and fun is so important and I think having that balance will make me a happier and healthier person overall.
I want candy! So I have already talked about how the new NEW SKINNY COW® Creamy Iced Coffee Drink is helping me by cutting out those coffeehouse drinks every day and now it is time to introduce you all to my treat. I have one treat a day. ONE! I need a limit people or I would eat candy all day! The struggle is real! Every day around my 3pm slump at work I open one of my favorite SKINNY COW® chocolatey candies and indulge. The SKINNY COW® Dreamy Clusters Milk Chocolatey Candy and the SKINNY COW® Divine Caramel Filled Chocolatey Candy are my favorite! I am able to get my candy fix and jump back into my focus of good health choices.
Water, I have a really hard time drinking enough water and I know if I really focused on it, I would physically feel a lot better and healthier. This goal is going to be hard for me but I am trying. Every morning I start my day with a nice cold drink of water and then continue the water intake while at work. Again, focusing on my health is a huge piece to my Back to Balance in 2015 goal. I want to be healthier both physically and emotionally so that I can be the best mother and wife for my family.
My last piece of making this goal the perfect goal of 2015 is Self-Care. Sure, eating healthier, drinking more water and cutting back on the sugary coffee drinks is part of self care but I am talking about me time. I love to read but have not read a book in over 3 months! I want to read more and enjoy time away from the computer and work. My goal is to read at least 5 books this year. A goal that seems easy but as life gets busy, sometimes the books get left out.
You can find these amazing SKINNY COW® products at Walmart. Make sure you pick some up and start focusing on getting balanced in 2015!
What is your tip for me to get Back to Balance this year?
