If you are a regular reader of my blog (and if you are not, shame on you) then you know that my word of the year is:
I new that I needed to change a lot of things about my life if I wanted to move forward and be happier. I signed up for and took a Life Coaching Course (100 days of analyzing your life will definitely change you). I started setting office hours so I could work smarter, not harder. I focused on what I needed to do to get ahead, not to just survive. I’ve been hugging more and yelling less (I hope the kids will think so too). Change isn’t easy, but if you are striving for more balance in your life, it’s a must. And balance doesn’t have to be a bad word. You CAN have balance in your life… you just have to make it a priority.
Finding your own balance will mean something different to every person. For me it’s about eating better, parenting better, and working better. It’s about having time in the day (every day) for the things that are important to me. It’s also about finding more enjoyment in the little things.
Part of those “little things” is being able to treat myself to the things I really love. One thing I’ve been buying a lot of lately is SKINNY COW® products. Things like SKINNY COW® Divine Caramel Filled Chocolately Candy and SKINNY COW® Double Caramel Swirl Dipped Bars are some of my favorites. The last time I was at Walmart they were having a demo of the new SKINNY COW® products, like the new iced coffee drinks.
Yum! I had to go pick up one of everything.
Do I really have to mention again how much I love coffee? You know part of finding my balance is having my hot coffee in the morning, but when it comes to the afternoon and I feel like I need a pick-me-up I’ve been indulging in the new SKINNY COW® Ice Coffee flavors. They are available in three dreamy flavors (Creamy Cappuccino, Mocha Latte and Vanilla Latte) and are only 120 calories per bottle. You can drink them cold right out of the bottle… OR, you can do what I do and whip yourself up an extra treat.
Easiest afternoon snack ever… mix the ice and SKINNY COW® Iced Coffee in a blender, pour into a glass, add your whipped cream and caramel (or chocolate) sauce and you have the perfect pick-me-up! Why leave your house to go to a coffee shop when you can make your own coffee drink in your own kitchen?
I also love throwing a pack of the SKINNY COW® Divine Caramel Filled Chocolately Candy in my purse for those days when I just really NEED something sweet. You know what I mean?
Balance isn’t easy, but it’s so worth it. The real trick? Don’t beat yourself up over not getting everything done in a day. Make some time for a sweet snack and know when work ends and family time begins.
You can find SKINNYCOW® Iced Coffee in the milk aisle, or maybe even in the front coolers at Walmart.
