Crystal Light Mocktails - Light Up Your Summer! And win Prizes too!

Did you know that there are only 51 days left! That's right Mocktail Season is ending soon! But there is still time to get in on the fun!

As you guys know I've lost 26 pounds so far, and with summer always being a time where I'm on the go, it's super easy to cheat. And let's face it, at the parks, beaches and pools, there is usually nothing but a proliferation of fried or otherwise bad for you foods!

When I'm super thirsty, nothing beats plain water, although it does sometimes get boring! And alcohol is basically empty calories (albeit fun empty calories), but alcohol is the last thing you want on a hot, sunny day, it just makes you more hot!

That's where Crystal Light comes in, their new limited edition Mocktails are set to take your summer by storm! Call it a cooler, colada, spritzer, blitz, julep or non-tini, the “mocktail,” a non-alcoholic cocktail bursting with flavor is shaking things up!

They come in three delicious low calorie flavors: Mojito, Margarita and Appletini.

My Take:

I've been making small changes to my lifestyle all year, changes that are sustainable, that have helped me NOT feel deprived and have yielded tremendous results for me. I never want to have to say 'I can't have that, I'm on a diet'. Instead with daily portion control, increased activity and excercise, I use moderation to maintain the weight loss to date and continue to improve my lifestyle. Crystal Light Mocktails are a great way to make water more fun so I'll stay hydrated especially important in summer where I tend to increase my fluids intake due to being out in the heat for longer periods of time. I really enjoy the Mocktails and will be adding them to my arsenal of tools to help sustain the lifestyle changes I've made so far to stay healthy and get in better shape! I  hope you'll join me and take the fizz over flavor challenge too!

Today's Words of Inspiration - Take time for yourself every day!


Thanks to Crystal Light for sponsoring this post. To learn more about how Crystal Light can flavor your day with 30 refreshing flavors, visit

I have a lot of balls in the air right now! As a result, I've been ignoring my own sage advice, and allowing circumstances to force me to stretch myself thin. And as a catholic, observing the season of Lent brings constant reminders of sacrifice, and 'giving something up'.

But what if there is nothing left to give up? What if time has become your nemesis? What if you are sacrificing sleep to get 'everything' done. What does that leave you to 'give up'? Where does that leave you emotionally?

I'm not going to pretend I have all the answers. I've learned to live in serenity and accept that work/life balance is a struggle. A struggle most of us share!

I have come to value my breathing affirmational excercises even more lately. So much so, that despite being super busy, I actually affirm and take moments of stillness twice a day, once to begin my day and once at the end of my night to help 'program' my sleep. Those albeit brief moments of stillness where I affirm statements that I know will bring about change and greater good within me have become my favorite parts of the day. Which has made me realize exactly how much more I'd like to be doing for myself.

I give a lot of my energy and time, to work, to family, to cultivate friendships, and I don't wan't to let myself 'starve' emotionally in the process. In my post about Lent, a reader told me, that instead of giving something up, they planned to add something on, and while I'm not going to 'add' exactly the same thing, I will add on more time for myself. To unwind, de-stress and even sneak in some pampering! The Flight Attendants in an Airplane even tell you to put the oxygen mask on yourself first, you can't take care of others, if you don't take proper care of yourself first. I am making that my motto today!

Today's Words of Inspiration'
Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud 'I take time for myself daily!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
