My 5 Must Have Items to Help Me Stick to My Goals

We all need some assitance when starting new routines. Here are 5 simple things that are keeping me on track to reach my goals for the New Year.

1. Protein Shake-Pineapple Cheesecake

While I’m not a huge dessert girl, I do have a sweet tooth for a Dairy Queen Pineapple Milkshake. Since that’s not a great option for my healthly lifestyle, this dupe fits the bit. I make mine with Shakeology Vanilla but any Vanilla protein powder will work.


1 scoop Vanilla protein powder

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 1⁄2 tbsp Sugar free Cheesecake pudding mix

1 cup pineapple

1⁄4 cup ice

Blend and enjoy while imagining yourself on a tropical island. ;)

2. On the go snack

I love the Sargento Fast Breaks. You get protein packed with a hint of sweet and fruit. They come in several varities and fit easily in your purse. They’re even kid approved at my house!

3. Gadget Apple Watch

It literally reminds me to breath. LOL! In all seriousness though it doesn hold me accountable for my workouts and activity. If you’re not a Mac person or want something more budget friendly, a FitBit has some awesome features to keep you in check.

4. Body Product

Up & Up Gradual Tan & Firming Lotion

It’s cold and I’m pasty. A tan always makes me feel better. I don’t want to splurge for a spray tan right now so this helps me moisturize, firm ;) and get some color. I started using the Jergen’s but found the Target brand earlier this week. For $3.00 less it seems ot work just as well. I’ll save that $3 for another Sargento snack.Lay

5. Book

Grace, Not Perfection by Emily Ley

It is perfect for my word of the year and it’s just one of those “feel” good books. As women we feel everything has to be perfect. This is a great reminder of why our personal best is good enough and to show ourselves some grace. It is quickly becoming my new favorite and when I’m feeling down, I’m finding myself turning to the words and allowing myself grace. You can grab a copy by clicking here...


I would love to hear some of our favorites when it comes to staying in check. I’m always up for tryign new things. And remember, you got this girl!


with love,
