We are a few weeks into the New Year — how is your New Year’s resolution going? I don’t really do resolutions but strive to be healthy year around. I thought I’d share three ways I’m staying healthy in 2015:
- Doing more than just running. This means keeping my cross training up through barre classes and making sure to foam roll regularly. I’ve been pretty good with the barre classes but the foam roller is not my best friend — working on committing to foam rolling after every run. Yes, every run.
- Remembering that mental health matters, too! My church is in the midst of 21 days of prayer and action and I’m trying to be really intentional about taking time out to pray intentionally. I pray daily but setting aside time to pray is something I could definitely do better at..
- Keeping snacking under control. I stick to the a general philosophy of buying healthy food and then letting meals out or holidays be a treat. This means that were lots of treats over Christmas! Luckily, I had some great sweet snacks at home to curb my sweet tooth (and stop me from buying junk!). The new Special K brownies are a delicious, flavorful treat that I’ve been LOVING recently. Special K Brownies are perfectly-portioned and at 80 calories each, I can have a couple and not feel any guilt! There are two flavors: Divine Fudge and Heavenly Caramel and they are made with real cocoa, chocolate or caramel chips, and topped with a drizzle of chocolate fudge for 80 decadent calories per bar. I am not a huge caramel lover, but I liked the Heavenly Caramel…however I loved Divine Fudge. I may or may not have had one for breakfast. Ahem, when it’s 80 calories, you can have dessert for breakfast, right? These are easy to grab, throw in your bag and munch on while you are on the go. Trust me, you might want to go ahead and throw 2 in your bag!
What’s your favorite sweet snack that doesn’t ruin any resolutions you’ve set?
