Camel cardigan similar // Split hem Leggings (wearing a small, tip: size down) // Hat // Sweatshirt in medium// Edith Chloe Bag vintage// Mules tts // $15 sunglasses

Spring is just around the corner, however, it’s not short sleeves weather yet. Bring on the light layers and sporty caps, I’m ready. I forgot how much I love the baseball hat and sweatshirt combo! Reid and I enjoyed Valentines Day lattes downtown Alpharetta. Both the company and sunshine was more than welcome. I linked my layers below for easy shopping.

What do you think?

I’m excited to partner with Talbots for the T by Talbots line and share a little more about my personal wellness journey. I became motivated to live a healthy lifestyle when I realized how good I felt when I ate healthy and how bad I felt when I slipped into unhealthy eating habits. As a busy mom, nutrition and fitness routines have become habits in my active lifestyle not only making me healthier, but helping me feel better and giving me more energy! Therefore, limiting foods that have no nutritional benefit and staying active has been really key for us. These lifestyle habits are also a powerful influence for my kids’ training as they model what I eat and do.  

Some of my daily routines are as follows: 

1. Every morning I start my day with a glass of celery juice. 

2. I drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.  If not  my skin will look dull without enough H20. 

3. I take liquid collagen, calcium and vitamin C supplements daily. I prefer liquid because it is 90% absorption versus 30% for powder. 

4.  I fix leafy green salads with sunflower seeds, avocado, feta, olives and a lean protein, drizzled in homemade balsamic dressing. 

5.  To curve cravings, I snack on high fiber energy balls between meals.  I’m sharing the no-bake recipe below.  My kids rave over these and watch out, because they disappear fast! Delicious!!!

 I always look out for easy recipes packed with protein (almond butter) and fiber (chia seeds and oatmeal). Energy balls seem to fit the bill.  We can thank the chia seeds which are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein and are high in Omega-3 fatty acids. Eating healthy has never tasted so good.

Here’s the recipe below!

 ENERGY BALLS

1 cup of organic oats (I grind in my cuisinart)

1/2 cup of chocolate chips

1/3 cup of chia seeds

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup almond butter, crunchy

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the above and mold into 1 inch balls. Place on a pan or plate into the freezer for one hour or 10 minutes if you’re like us and can’t wait! 

How cool is this cobalt top from T by Talbots?  The pops of color, flattering shade of blue and perfect length make it a perfect pairing with this skort for errands or a neighborhood walk. I’m also loving these crop pants and zip ankle leggings for squats or lounging. Which is your favorite piece?

New Year, New You

Some typical goals are, eat better, discover wholesome foods and recipes, take your vitamins & supplements and drink lots of H20!

But what does that look like for you?

Shop me and Reid’s pre-workout from Walmart’s Wellness hub:

If you’re like me, I need a workout outfit to keep me motivated.

I found a great workout outfit at Walmart for a total of $40. I’m loving this hot pink workout bra with lots of comfort and padding.

The leggings have side pockets and suck you in nicely. Hello flattering leggings!

The jacket has pockets and perfect for post workout and washable. Win-win after Levi gets his hands full of oatmeal on me.

Sharing one of my favorite salad dressing recipes with you. I’ll guarantee that you’ll eat more salad once you use this dressing.

Here we go.

Balsamic Vinaigrette (recipe can be doubled)

Mince 2 cloves of garlic and add the following ingredients in a small jar with lid:

1/3 cup canola oil (I use avocado oil)

2 T balsamic vinegar

1 t. sugar

1/2 t. salt

Shake vigorously and serve. Store in fridge up to a week.

Walmart has all these ingredients and more, one click away. I even order Reid’s favorite pre-workout from Walmart’s Wellness hub. Whether you use Walmart+ or shop in store, fresh ingredients, and competitive pricing are at your finger tips to achieve those 2021 goals.

What goes with everything and is a must-have for fall? Why, comfy black booties of course! These “Trinculo” Børn boots are not only comfortable (as in gel-cushion-comfy) but they look awesome with a sweater and cropped jeans. And as I transition to fall, I plan to wear them with bare legs for as long as the weather affords. A definite bonus is that I can get them on in 5 seconds when I’m running late to school drop-off. Winning.
