Lately I have been losing the battle. I have had some health issues and that has really messed up my dieting and all around healthy lifestyle. I think most of us ladies struggle at some point with either our weight or just maintaining a healthy diet. Things have reached a critical point where I need to make immediate changes. My mind has been filled with other things, so I have been making lots of bad choices.
This weekend was my first step in making healthier choices and not allowing myself to be set up for failure. I had a ton of errands to run this weekend. Most mornings when I am on the run I will head to the closest coffee shop for an iced coffee and a little something for my tummy. Those two little items probably have more calories than I should be having for 2 meals.
This weekend I decided to make a really easy change, starting with my breakfast. Instead of running into the closest coffee shop I would make a really simple iced coffee and grab a quick bag of Emerald Breakfast On the Go!™ Nutty Bites. Breakfast on the go has always been something I keep in the house for one of my youngest sons who is never on time for his school bus. He will always opt to grab a bag of Breakfast on the go as he is running out the door.
While shopping at my local Walmart recently I noticed these new Emerald Breakfast On the Go!™ Nutty Bites and knew they would be a huge hit with my son. Then my wheels really started to spin and I thought this would also be a great option for my mornings when I am on the run. Why had I not thought of this before?! I also noticed these new special 5oz Mini Cans of nuts. The selection was perfect; Deluxe Mixed Nuts, Natural Almonds & Walnuts, Peanuts Almonds & Cashews, and Cashews. The hardest part was picking which ones I wanted. These are exclusively at Walmart. I grabbed a few cans to go along with my Nutty Bites and had a game plan that I was ready to try out.
Okay Saturday, I am officially ready for you!
What a satisfying breakfast! My tummy was completely content and I felt amazingly refreshed and energized. Bring on the errands! But hang on, I still need to make sure the rest of my day does not go all wrong. I had a ton of errands and being on the run all day is another downfall for me. I normally will opt to stop for a cupcake or fries as a quick fill for my tummy when those hunger pains start to kick in later in the day.
Okay, now I am ready to get on the road!
I got on the road and got my errands started. Hours had gone by before I felt any hunger pains. So far things were going perfectly. Just having my Emerald Mini Can of cashews was giving me a ton of confidence that I had this totally under control. Finally those hunger pains started to kick in. It literally was as I was driving by a fast food drive thru but this time I kept on driving past. I had all I needed right there in the car with me. It felt empowering to drive past that drive thru and my cashews were a delicious healthy treat. You know what….. I got this!
With Emerald nuts on my team, I am now set up for success! TEAM EMERALD!
