There’s been a lot of talk here on the blog so far this year about my goals for 2015, and one of the biggest ones is the goal to live a healthier lifestyle.  It’s so hard, though, y’all!  Life is so busy!  But my health is a major priority, as is yours, right? To help me start my day off on a healthy note and stay on track all day, I’ve developed a New Morning Routine!

#NewBreakfastRoutine | Sweet Tea & Saving GraceI start my week days at 5:00am, leaving for work by 6:30, so I depend on a grab-and-go breakfast.  I was in Target recently and saw these BelVita Bites – Mini Breakfast Biscuits in chocolate flavor.  Chocolate for breakfast?  Yes please!  When paired with delicious V8 Veggie Blends, that’s a Morning Win!  I love the Carrot Mango flavor of V8 Veggie Blends.  It contains a full serving of vegetables in every 8 oz. glass, and it’s an excellent source of antioxidant vitamins A, C & E!

Because I’m away from home 12 hours a day during the week, I fit in as much as I can on the weekends, and this breakfast combo helps me stay energized all day so I can get more done!

While chowing down on these yummy chocolate BelVita Bites, I made my to-do list and grocery list for the day.  After breakfast, it was time to get started.

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceMy health goals for this year are to lose 15 pounds by my wedding anniversary in April, and keep that weight off for good.  I also want to get my whole family involved in a healthier lifestyle, like walking in the neighborhood when the weather is nice, visiting our local parks, and exercising at home.

It can really be hard to start new (healthy) habits, but I know I’m worth it, and my family deserves it.

Sweet tea is my kryptonite.  Just pulling that big tea pitcher out of the dishwasher makes me thirsty, but my goal is to limit myself to one glass everyday, then switch to water.  Baby steps…

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceHitting the grocery store!  Living a healthier lifestyle means eating healthier, all the way around.  I’ve tried to shift the way I shop, focusing more on the produce section and less on the cookie aisle.  Fortunately, our regular meals are already pretty healthy, but I’ll be throwing in more salads to help us out even more!

It’s a good thing I started my day with BelVita Bites & V8 Veggie Blends – dishes and grocery shopping are done, but the day is young!

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceThe life of a craft blogger means fitting in DIY time whenever possible.  I depend on my weekends to get my projects done.  You’ll see this one really soon!

Once my crafting is finished, there’s still a house to clean and dinner to cook.

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceOh yea…and laundry.  The neverending pile of laundry….

A mom’s job is never finished.

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceNow that my chores are done, it’s time for a quick workout session before dinner.  We recently installed a punching bag in our garage, and it’s a great way to get the exercise I need and alleviate some stress!

Finally, my busy day is almost over.  Salad and dinner with the family, then a little rest and relaxation on the couch before starting all over tomorrow!  It’s a good day!

#NewBreakfastRoutine  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceIf your goals for 2015 include getting healthy, be sure to stop by Target and check out their “In With The New” section located in the back of the store.  You’ll find lots of ways to start healthy living.  There’s an entire aisle of breakfast foods, incling BelVita Bites & V8 Veggie Blends.

I am so excited to have a New Morning Routine to give me energy throughout the day to not only check off everything on my to-do list, but leave me with enough energy to exercise, getting me one step closer to achieving my goals for the year.

What is your Morning Win?
