Who loves this time of the year?  I sure do, I feel like the New Year always brings me motivation to live happier and a reset in life.  This year I have made it a point to make my focus on my dreams - maybe you could say my word of 2016 is DREAM.  When I started planning my dreams for what I see myself doing in 2016 a lot of those plans have to do with personal growth, health and our family.  To start focusing on those dreams I started using my new life planner that I adore - okay, maybe I am a little obsessed with my planner.

As I started writing down my professional goals I started thinking about how I want to present in person and decided that one way I know I look and feel better is by consuming more water through out the day.  I decided to get a little crafty on my own and make some fun stickers to add to my planner to track my daily water intake.  Cute right?  So simple to make too and they are really helping me track the water I drink all day.  

When I am really focused on my health and eating better I also feel better and one area that I really struggle with that is for breakfast.  I make my kids a good breakfast every morning before school but never really think about myself.  NOT GOOD!  I end up stopping at the coffee shop for coffee and a pastry.  Yikes.  By 11am I am dragging and ready for a nap - this girl needs protein!  

Solution - make a delicious coffee shop treat with a Jif Peanut Powder twist that is packed full of protein with 85% less fat than traditional peanut butter!
