SUPER BOWL Is right around the corner

Alisha Meyer

I can imagine we are all excited for the big game on Sunday, whether we are a Bronco's fan, or a Panthers fan, right!? I'm not for either team, BUT being that Zack and I are living (I fly out tomorrow morning) in North Carolina, I feel a slight urge to cheer on the Panthers! Either way, I'm so excited I get to board a plane tomorrow morning to travel to my new adventure with my husband and our pup, Myla! These last few days have been a slight challenge to remain sane. Not because my family is driving me crazy, or because I can't get to the gym -even though that is a big factor in it all- but it's honestly because I have been out of my normal for a while now, and starting to feel the difference. Now, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade being here for my brother for ANYTHING, but it is just time for this girl to start her adventure with her family.

SUPER BOWL! Ahh yeah, I'm so excited for the feeling of being in a state that is IN the super bowl (no offense Vikes, you were close). The energy, the competitiveness, the fans, the crazy, and....the food and drinks! I know a lot of you are working towards your goal of overall health and wellness, and this day is probably something you may be intimidated of. With all the yummy temptations surrounding your super bowl parties, you may not know what to eat or drink, or at least how much is okay. Well, do I have a treat for you! I'm giving you a VERY yummy, and HEALTHY option to try at your party! And the best part is, no one will even know it's healthy. Sounds great right? It is from my FAVORITE online market, Thrive Market. They are a company that gives back to the community, sells organic food, beauty products, baby and kid items, men items, supplements, and more, all for a very low price! I shop on here for just about all my health food items, bath products, beauty products, Myla's toys, and more! The other great thing I mentioned is they give back. For every person that buys a membership (yearly cost is $59.95) Thrive gives a free membership to a family in need. That way, the typical saying of "eating healthy is so expensive" can no longer be your excuse! So enjoy your parties, and enjoy eating and drinking! Just remember, the better choices you make, the better you will feel the next day. Trust me, I'll have a few naughty choices, but I also believe it's okay to do that here and there, as long as you know it won't create bad habits going forward. You know yourself, so eat and drink things you know YOU are in control of, not the food controlling you.
