It is a new year, and after all those yummy sweets, decadent meals and late nights this holiday season I am ready to get back on track with a balanced lifestyle! This year is a big one for me, I am turning 30, Dean turns 5 and starts kindergarten and I am hoping to get pregnant with our second baby. Woo I am overwhelmed just thinking about what a big year this will be. I want to make sure I am ready to take it all on, that is where a balanced lifestyle will really play a huge role in making sure I am healthy and ready to rock this year.
I still have a little baby weight I would love to shed before getting pregnant and while I don’t want to diet I do need a little help staying on track. I love to stock my kitchen with Lean Cuisine, Skinny Cow and Coffee-mate to help me make better choices.
I used to never eat breakfast which was slowing my metabolism down and making me ravenous later on. So starting the year off right I am getting up earlier with the help of a little Coffee-mate in my morning coffee. That jolt of caffeine and sweet vanilla creamer are the perfect thing to get me up and going and ready to do a little workout before Dean gets up.
So far things are going good, I am on track with my day and it is time for breakfast. Breakfast used to consist of…..nothing. Mornings were just too hectic for me to fix myself some breakfast, but I have resolved to fix that. These Lean Cuisine Turkey Sausage English Muffins are my new go-to breakfast. Just a few minutes in the microwave and I have a warm, delicious breakfast that keeps me full till lunch.
Speaking of lunch my old way would be to warm up leftovers from the night before or anything I could quickly grab between cleaning, blogging and playing cars with Dean. Now in just a few minutes I can have a comforting bowl of Macaroni and Cheese or a delicious veggie filled Creamy Balsamic Chicken Wrap.
Both of these lunches are delicious and much better choices than my usual lunch. I get a great quick lunch that is yummy and helps me make healthier choices.
When dinner time rolls around I am in such a rush fixing everyone’s dinner and lunches for tomorrow that by the time Dan leaves for work that night I just plop down in front of the TV with a big plate of whatever everyone else ate instead of taking the time to fix what I really what, a balanced dinner that I can feel good about eating. I just do not have the time to fix ANOTHER meal on top of the ones I already make. Again Lean Cuisine to the rescue! When the dust settles I can go to the freezer and in minutes I can settle down with an amazing meal I don’t have to feel guilty about eating. I love picking up the Sesame Chicken, the chicken is tender and flavorful and the noodles with the vegetables are amazing and taste so fresh.
After bath time, more cleaning and wrestling a toddler into bed it is time for some “mommy time”. Part of my goal of a more balanced lifestyle is finding the time for myself in everyday. So instead of grabbing a bag of gummi bears and hopping on the computer to finish up a post, I am now taking a minute for myself and reading which is my favorite thing to do. I still allow myself a little treat but now I am just making better choices by choosing a scrumptious Skinny Cow Devine Candy. I love the caramel version and I really love that with Skinny Cow I can still get a treat while staying on track.
Now if it is the weekend and I am looking for a snack while we are watching movies I grab Lean Cuisine Three Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Pretzels. They are ooey, gooey, cheesy little flavor bombs that satisfy my craving for a snack.
If I can get back on track and maintain a balanced lifestyle so can you! You can start by heading to your Walmart and picking up all these delicious options just like I did. The prices there also help you keep a balanced budget.
I fill my basket up with these products and feel so good about the changes I am making in my life. The best part about staying on track with Lean Cuisine is they offer a Money Back Guarantee* Try any 10 LEAN CUISINE® entrees from Walmart for ten days and if you don’t believe you feel great after 10 days, they will refund the cost of your 10 days of entrees, up to $25.00.
