Healthy Treats and Obsessions

I feel like I’ve been saying it for weeks, but the busy season at work is OFFICIALLY here. Long days – Busy, Busy, Busy. During times like this, I often try to reward myself with tiny treats to help keep my mood positive.

Luckily, I was able to reward myself with bootcamp on Monday morning. Healthy rewards are important. Especially since I have definitely given myself a few too many of….

of Taza’s new treat: Peanut Crunch. Seriously. SO GOOD! Salty, Crunchy, Pea-nutty, Chocolate-y. At 120 calories a pop I don’t feel too guilty, but I did eat 4 in one day…..

It doesn’t help that we sell these AT MY WORK, so they’re always within arms reach. In an effort to curb the cravings, I snagged a bottle of:

So Delicious Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk. Definitely a healthier choice, and still creamy and satisfying. I took two shots of this yesterday (1/4 cup serving) and it seemed to help. I didn’t eat a Peanut Crunch yesterday…so that’s positive.

PLUS you guys know how much I LOOOOOOVE Seasonal everything! I will definitely be picking up another bottle when my current bottle runs out.

Another seasonal favorite:

Flannel! If you follow me on Pinterest, then you have already picked up on my current obsession with flannel. I seriously can’t get enough! All I’m missing is a warm vest, and I will have all the wardrobe needs to fill this obsession.

I snagged the above beauty at H&M last week. For only $10 – and it’s long enough to wear with leggings and boots on a date night, or skinny jeans for work.

And hey, at least flannel doesn’t come with any added calories!

Happy Wednesday!

Do you treat yourself? AND how do you stay sane during the holidays?
