starbucks via ready brew peppermint mocha

As a coffee lover, there is no bad time of day for one cup of Joe. At Christmas time, this coffee lover gets super excited because of specialty flavors like peppermint mocha. Without skipping a beat in my home, I could do laundry, make beds, clean the kitchen, stop for a nice cup of fancy pantsy Starbucks peppermint mocha, and go about my day without skipping a beat. No more trips to the coffee shop for this chick! Peppermint Mocha now comes in Starbucks via ready brew. I just add some skim (or whatever) milk and one single serving packet of Starbucks Pepperment Mocha Ready brew, and I have a pick me up that’s equally as delicious as the in-store Venti that I usually get. Who knew instant coffee could be this good. ~ natalie

hip hop abs and shakeology

Recently, I was looking for a way to get fit and have some fun doing it. I discovered a 30-day challenge group with Toned After Twins on facebook and decided it might just be the accountability I needed to make my workouts without fail. I started Hip Hop Abs and if you like to dance and music easily gets you moving, you’ll love these routines and videos! My favorite part? Each workout is only about 30 minutes and they even have a hard core 5-minute video when you’re really pushed for time. Who can’t make that work?!? The video set came with a 30 day plan, helping you mix things up while strengthening your core, and man, will you feel the burn after day 2 or 3! I also started Shakeology for one meal each day, helping to curb my appetite and get the vitamins and nutrients I needed to keep me going throughout the day. With food suggestions and recipes for trying different ways to enjoy the shakes, it became much easier to eat right. After week 2 in the challenge, I felt more energized and stronger. I felt core muscles that I haven’t felt since at least before my twins were born. While I didn’t lose the weight I had hoped (some was likely due to muscle gain and some was definitely due to my not being able to give up sweets around the holidays!), it interested me enough to keep up the challenge well after 30 days! I highly recommend giving Hip Hop Abs and Shakeology a try! ~ talitha
