So, I have a little secret to confess. I love sweets! I have the biggest sweet tooth and could eat, bake, and smell deliciousness 24/7. That said, I am a little worried about the holiday season and staying on my A-game. Funny story – when we were stationed in Colorado my husband said, “Let’s not buy any bad food and stick to clean eating.” My response, “Sounds like a plan, but I can make everything from scratch.” OOPS! What are some of your tips for sticking to a healthy lifestyle regimen?

One thing I do is incorporate exercise into my daily routine. I must admit that between the kids being in school and activities and my job at Texas Madre and running the house this is becoming harder to maintain. To guarantee I get some cardio and weight training in my day I utilize at home streaming workouts. Some of my favorites are Fitness Blender and I recently joined Beachbody for their on demand workouts.

I also keep minimal groceries in the house. I try to shop for my week and use that food for our meals. The only excess food that I have is for snacks for the kids school and lunch. I don’t want to be left in a lurch if they want to pack their lunch or need fuel.

To minimize my want for sweets I try to keep fruit on hand. This is a great supplement that tastes just as great. Another trick would be to freeze your fruit. You can blend some of it up as an ice cream(ish) type dish or change the texture for the treat.

I drink a ton of water a day. I always have a straw in my cup. This allows me easy access and helps me consume more. The more water you intake the better you will feel, your skin will look great, you will feel full, etc.

Write down what you eat and what activities you do. There are a ton of free apps that will assist you here. Use them. This provides accountability and will keep you on track.

That about ties it up. Ha! Yes, pun intended.

On to the outfit. Don’t you love this lace up bell sleeve top. The velvet ribbon is a dramatic flare that stands out against the color of the sweater. It is from Nordstrom and is so comfy. I really like that it can be dressed up and down too. The color is a popular fall color and it is only $55. That is a great price for such a fun top.

The outfit stands out with the contrasting colors. Black on the bottom with splashes of color up top. The accessories complement the style and give it the needed flare. Guys, if you ever want to splurge on designer bags you cannot go wrong with Louis. He is my bud! This bag is simply the best.

I just hit my wall. I am off to get my beauty sleep. Until next time my friends!
