Brought to you by AcornInfluence and Café Breaks
Mother’s Day is around the corner and the hubby and kids show their appreciation. We bust our rumps all year long preparing well rounded meals and running kids everywhere. While I LOVE to be appreciated I’ve also learned that I need to make sure I’m doing some self-care and not relying on anyone else.
I used to suffer from mom-guilt about having a night out with my friends or soaking in a bubble bath with a glass of wine and some music but not anymore. If WE don’t take care of ourselves we will have nothing left to give. Don’t let your well run dry. Now I make sure I have that time to myself or out with friends and doing things that replenish the soul. For me it is gardening or reading a book. I also love sitting on the beach in the morning with a cup of coffee or going to my kickboxing class. I feel fierce and I’m taking care of myself.
Make sure you are taking time with friends, go get a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Join a book club or train to run a 5k with your girlfriends. Do something that reminds you of who you are without the kids.
I also give myself quick little breaks during the day. If I’m waiting for a child at orchestra I read a chapter or two of a book or I have a quick snack. I enjoy Café Breaks pudding. They are coffee-inspired adult pudding cups that will have you taking your fast break game to new heights. Milk is the main ingredient and they are gluten free and NO PRESERVATIVES!! I love the mocha latte pudding cup, it is all the deliciousness of a coffee drink but with only 100 calories and honestly, I don’t want coffee all day long. This is the perfect alternative.
I love to have one after kickboxing too, it is a job well done without the guilt. There are zero grams of trans fat and these Café Breaks puddings are a yummy treat.
I buy mine at Walmart where they have every day low prices. I think I paid a little over $1 for a pack of these.
Flavors – Mocha Latte, Caramel Latte, Vanilla Latte, and Chai Latte
