It’s 2017, the beginning of anything you want. Have you already decided what you are going to do with the 365 opportunities you have this year? Do you make resolutions or set goals?
“I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s.” – Henry Moore
Before the new year, I decided that I would let go of all the pain and stress that was weighing on my spirit. I really felt like I was carrying around every bad experience I had in 2016. I resolved to enter 2017 with a clear mind so I am able to focus on my own personal, professional and health goals.
However, instead of completely wiping the slate clean for 2017 I decided to improve upon all the experiences that helped me be a better sister, friend, blogger, aunt and daughter. My dedication to fitness, vegetarianism, blogging, and professional development will make recurring appearances this year. It’s so easy to get caught on what’s being left behind at the start of a new year but let’s not forget about the good aspects that have made us who we are.
When I was asked to review the Mind, Mood & Food Boosters Babbleboxx I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to share with you guys many of the things (great food, water, healthy snacks, and fitness) that keep me focused and on task throughout the year so I keep up with my daily resolutions.
In my mind, Oprah Winfrey is my God-mother. As a teenager, I can remember rushing home from school every day to watch her show. Back then I saw her as an amazing talk show host that interviewed some of my favorite celebrities. As an adult, I recognize and respect Oprah’s business acumen, philanthropy, and dedication to healthy living. In her new cookbook “Food, Health and Happiness” Oprah shares healthy recipes she’s created with her favorite chefs. In addition, she also shares personal essays on how she lives a happy and healthy life. My favorite quote from the book so far: “I know now that losing weight and keeping it off will never be about dieting and deprivation, shaming and guilting myself. I can’t wait to use some of these recipes in my weekly meal prep. I already have my eye on the Indian Pumpkin Curry recipe.
Made in Nature Tart Cherry Fig Figgy Pops
I am a certified master when it comes to weekly meal prepping. However, I always struggle when it comes to finding healthy snacks. Made in Nature Tart Cherry Fig Figgy Pops are certified organic, non-GMO and a good source of fiber. Don’t worry there is nothing tart about this snack. The combination of figs, dates, tart cherries, cashews, walnuts, coconuts and cacao nibs are delicious. These have been my go-to snack this week before my Tuesday and Thursday boxing class.

How much water are you drinking? No, really? Do you realize that water is the easiest way to naturally detox your body? JUST® water is 100% spring water in a paper-based bottle available nationally for $.99! If you’re like me and always keep a bottle of water with you then you will love carrying around this super cute bottle.
If you follow me on IG then you know I am a certified coffee fanatic. I have tried to break my addiction several times and failed miserably. So I was super excited about receiving these SIPCRIPTION organic teas. Drinking coffee in the morning has become a morning ritual for me. However, I am eager to replace that tradition with a wellness tea that is mind-balancing and can help me ward off the adverse effects of life. SIPSCRIPTIONS teas are made from fresh herbs and active botanicals that support daily health and well-being. Tea Forte’s signature infuser and single steep pouches are going to make it easy to steep loose tea at work.

In 2015 I completed my very first 5k! Prior to deciding to actually participate in a race, I hated running. I had created this illusion in my mind of what a runner looked like and I wasn’t it. Once I moved pasted my own misconceptions and focused on my training I found myself looking forward to my evening runs. Even in the scorching heat of July I made no excuses and got it done.
I realized quickly that running is more than just getting out there and doing it. Proper form, breathing techniques, compression clothing, running shoes and socks are all necessities. Believe it or not, a bad sock will ruin your run. I personally love a cushioned running sock and I couldn’t wait to try out these FITS® light runner socks. I love that the cushioning is located in the toe and heel of these top-rated running socks. And don’t worry your sock will not get eaten by your shoe. FITS® incorporates innovative, proprietary engineering and technology to create the most comfortable, best-fitting sock in the world.

EQUAL Beanie and Bracelet
We are different. We think differently, have different desires and goals. There is someone right now reading this post that may not agree with anything that I’ve said and this absolutely ok. What’s not ok is the fact that many of use are treated differently because of our differences. We all deserve acceptance, respect and rights. The EQUAL beanie and bracelet allow people to express their beliefs in equality not matter what they are.
If you believe in equality make it your daily resolution to #disruptdiscrimination in 2017.
Purchase your EQUAL merchandise and wear it, share it and change the world.
