You know how you make all those resolutions in January to keep on top of your health and fitness goals. Then February rolls around and it’s just too cold to jump out of your warm bed in the morning to go to the gym. Well, that’s just one of my excuses for why I haven’t been staying on top of my workout routine quite as much as I had planned to. The others would be a new house, a LOT of traveling and a three-nager who wears me out! But now that the weather is warming up I’m getting back in the game. Last week was the first week of our new routine, one that focuses more on fitting in workouts every day, staying active and eating right.
One of the biggest challenges for me is mornings. Getting out the door on time takes so much effort and we still manage to run late at least once r twice a week. Between getting me ready, getting Brady ready, making breakfast and gathering up all our gear….. it’s so much! While B is finishing his breakfast I’m usually packing lunch, signing papers for preschool or trying to hunt down some necessity that’s gone rogue, which leaves me very little time.
So I’ve learned to keep some easy grab-and-go snacks for when I don’t have time to sit down and eat with everyone else. I love these LALA® Yogurt Smoothies! They are so delicious and they’ve got 5 grams of protein. I love that they are the perfect portable snack, super convenient and taste great. I’ll grab one and a piece of fruit on the way out the door and it gives me the energy I need to power through my morning workout and tackle the rest of my afternoon to-do list.
Bananas, apples, grapes, whole-grain pretzels, cottage cheese, almonds, blueberries and cheese are also on my snack shopping list. A piece of fruit, a handful or berries and nuts or some pretzels and cheese is just the right amount to keep me from crashing.
