Think of the Fall season as a fresh start to healthier eating and lifestyle habits. Here are some amazing Fall health tips that any mom can do.
I am also excited to introduce you to the sponsor of this post, Tropical Smoothie Cafe. All opinions are my own.
How many times have you wished that there were more than 24 hours in a day? As a mom, it seems like there is never enough time in the day or week to get everything done. I know in my daily life, not only do I ensure that my kids are active, happy and healthy, but I try to do the same for myself and my body as well. Being a busy mom means that I live a very active lifestyle. Somedays, everything that I do is for somebody else, and while I love being able to help and care for my family, I also know that it’s important to step back at times and focus on me.
Fall Health Tips and Fitness Tips for Moms Living an Active Life
Every day, you need to make certain that you are treating yourself and your body the best possible way. Your health is important and should never be put on the back burner!
Take a social media break and enjoy nature.
Fall weather is breathtaking. However, if you are sitting behind your computer all day long or staring endless hours into your phone screen, that beautiful Fall scenery will be over quickly before you even have time to enjoy it! Step outside and enjoy the crisp air and make time to view the leaves changing colors right in front of your eyes. Take a walk or a jog. Nature has an amazing way of clearing your mind, heart, and soul.
Find a local gym that you can join.
Joining a gym is a great idea for so many different reasons! Not only are you exercising your body, but you are doing something just for you! (As a matter of fact, I just joined a local gym and I’m loving it!) Every day, you get to make a conscious effort to walk through those gym doors and give it your all. Some days, you may decide to make it a hard-core workout day, and others, you may just want to put in the earphones and relax in the sauna. Do what works for you! Your newly acquired gym membership is like your own private getaway.
Say no to the Halloween candy that your children may tempt you with.
Even though Halloween may be a little ways out, it’s important to lay off the candy. It’s hard but totally possible. Snacking on candy seems to create a downward spiral that goes on, and on, and on…Begin to prep your brain now that you don’t need the candy and leave the treats alone. One tip to stop those candy cravings? Don’t buy your Halloween candy too early. Having it just sit around the house is the perfect way to snack and that means empty calories for you and your family. Speaking of sweeter for you…
Fuel your body with healthier food and drink options.
You may think that you can run on caffeine all day, but eventually, your body needs nourishment. Leave the prepacked food at home and resist pulling into those drive-thru food chains trying to seek out some sort of food. Instead, do what I do and head to Tropical Smoothie Cafe. Fueling my body with a healthier smoothie after my workout makes me feel great about my active lifestyle choices for the day and I love how their smoothies are so delicious and creamy! I may have once (or twice…) used their Tropical Rewards App and placed my order while I was working out so that when I was finished, it was ready and waiting for me. Talk about the best way to end a workout, ever!
I could go on and on about their amazing quesadillas and other food options, but what I’m super excited to share with you is their Fall smoothie lineup.
Tropical Smoothie Cafe: New Fall Smoothie Flavors
If I am craving something sweet, I love to head over to Tropical Smoothie Cafe and fuel up with one of their smoothies. I am super excited for their new Fall smoothies. I almost squealed with delight (okay, maybe I did) when I saw these three delicious Fall smoothie flavors on their menu.
Did you know that pumpkin offers great health benefits and is an excellent antioxidant?
The leaves are falling, cooler weather is coming and these fall smoothies are perfect for the Fall season. Trust me…you won’t want to miss out on Chai, Pumpkin Chai, and Pumpkin Pie Smoothies and if you don’t head there and order soon, you will miss out because they are only available for a limited time.
It’s a toss-up on what flavor I liked best, but I can assure you that I seriously love them all.
Just because you are a busy and active mom doesn’t mean that you should forget about taking care of you. Treating your body and yourself in a way that complements your active lifestyle is extremely important and is also a great example for your kids to see and follow! Just by implementing these simple steps into your daily life, you’ll start to feel healthier in no time! And when you’re looking to treat yourself, the delicious fall smoothies from Tropical Smoothie Cafe are the perfect pumpkin on top!
