Whether you are one who sets the infamous weight-loss resolution each year or not, goals are always a good thing to have. Five months ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and she is the best thing I’ve ever done. :) Along with this little bundle of joy came a little bundle of weight I am slowly, yet surely, working to remove. Some days are harder than others and eating a balanced diet can take a toll on a mind (and belly) that wants all things smothered in butter and covered in sugar.
We’ve all been there: a perfectly healthy salad is in the fridge waiting for us and then that sweet tooth starts screaming so loudly that the only thing to possibly shut it up is a slice of French toast. And yet, all is not lost. I’ve found a really great way to help curb those cravings is through my Scentsy Bars! There is something so satisfying about smelling French Toast (the bar) that really takes the edge off of a gnarly craving.
I mean, just read the description:
“A perfect, light slice of bread dunked in golden egg batter, dusted with powdered sugar, and finished with a swirl of sweet maple syrup.”
What’s great is you can get the smell of this delectable fragrance and all its yumminess with zero calories! And there are other ones too! Blueberry Cheesecake!
Oh Blueberry Cheesecake...
“Thick, rich NY cheesecake with a light graham cracker crust and delicious blueberries.”
I’ll take it.
A perfect alternative to stuffing your face is supplying your nose with a sweet fragrance. It’s easier to say “no” to those empty calories with zero calorie fragrance alternatives. Now, I haven’t cut out all sweets. Don’t be crazy. However, this approach combined with logging everything I eat through an app on my phone has helped me shrink that bundle around my middle to more of a bump. I’m well on my way! No matter what your resolutions are, look for creative ways to keep them—and don’t give up! What are your resolutions and what are you doing to keep them?
