Ayyyy Dios mio! OMG! I feel it was just yesterday that I was thinking about my resolutions. Time is flying by and I saw that my 2015 goals were frail. Last year I let my vanity go. Very un-latina of me, I know. But the crazy morning routines were taking the best of me. While the routines are still just as chaotic, I have a new resurgence and determination to lead a healthier lifestyle that in turn should help me shed the extra pounds that sit right on my caderas! – hips. First thing is making sure I have breakfast. V8 and belVita are my new morning routine allies for nutritious energy!
For the last year I did something mi abuela – grandma would frown upon: I was skipping breakfast. The reason for this was that in the morning dash, I really didn’t take a moment to get my energy for the rest of the day. I took care of everyone else and ensured the entire family was out the door and ready to face the day. On the other hand. I was starting my day exhausted and with an empty tank. Abuela would always say:
So I am doing just that now. I am having breakfast like a queen with my glass of V8 which delivers a full serving of veggies in every 8oz glass and yummy belVita Bites that give me flavors i love plus 4 hours of nutritious steady energy!
I have to share with you what happened during my last Target run to get my breakfast friends. As I was about to grab either the Purple Power or the Healthy Green V8 blends I saw the Golden Goodness Blend.
You can’t imagine the overpowering feeling that grandma was approving of my healthier decisions. This is because as young girls our breakfast at her house always included a glass of orange and carrot juice!!! Que rico!!

I was so energized by the discovery I also got myself a yoga mat. You know it: nothing is stopping me now. I am raising my glass of V8 to a healthy 2015!! I am impressed at how the small step of eating breakfast now takes me to enjoy yoga.
Like I said, our busy lives are not slowing down. Neither can my determination to take care of myself. Specially now that I have fantastic products to help me do so, even if on the go. I have seen already a big change in actually having breakfast: I no longer have mid morning cravings. My eating anxiety has also diminished considerably. I do feel this will help me get closer to the amazing body of the new Miss Universe, which incidentally is also Colombian! Que viva la belleza latina!!
As I do healthier things I am sure my hair will become shinier, my nails stronger and my spirits lifted. Yay for the small steps!
You know, this new lifestyle goes further than just me. The kids are like sponges and do emulate everything we do. This weekend they set the table for their breakfast and I was all over it! Like mom, like kids! Take a look:
Do you have small steps you would suggest I adopt to continue on my health kick path? Anything you do for a healthier lifestyle?
